We have rented this villa for the end of July, for 8 days. The villa was presented to us, through the pictures as a nice villa, and thus we payed a lot of money for the rent.
Arriving at the place, we were greeted by Sunit: a guy with the only intention to make as much money as possible in the arranging of Taxi services; and he wanted to charge us 1500 baht a day for cleaning services!! Something that was advertised to be part of the deal.
The ''villa'', or rather the ''chicken farm'' as Sunit himself calls the place, was in very bas chape. the wood was rotten, it was not clean, the paint was gong, no warm water, and so on.
luckily we had rental protection from TripAdvisor, so I called them to start a claim. The service was good, except for the fact that they were only interested in keeping their fee.
The reason I give poor, and not terrible review:
The owner was in the US and hasn't visited the villa in years, and the fact that he offered to pay us back half of our money back.
To the owner: please keep an eye on what you advertise to people, because you almost destroyed what was to be a last good holiday of longtime friends.
Thanks for the refund, that made a lot better!

I stayed at the villa for a week in July 2016 and only have positive things to say. The villa was delightful and matched the way it was advertised.
However, the best aspect of the stay was our private driver Sunti (man lyk). From the outset he was able to provide us information about the villa and the island of koh samui. He was also available 24/7 to pick us up from wherever on the island, and I mean 24/7! (i.e 3/4am in the morning). He charged us better rates then the local taxis and was great company. So much so that we had himself, his wife and his daughter come to the villa for dinner on the last night!
Overall a great stay!
