“Beautiful Ocean View”
Reviewed 3 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017
1
person found this review helpful

We went with our family just before Christmas and really wanted a place where we could all spend time together and be comfortable as well -- you can certainly do that at this Villa. There is a common room with attached patio that is lovely for getting together, the wifi is decent, and the cable TV is spotty at best, but it's Thailand, so you might not care! The house is nicely done, and the view is beautiful. The beds/furniture etc are comfortable, Sue made sure our baby grand-daughter had a very comfortable and new crib, the house is very clean and well looked after. It is up the hill -- however it can be walked to from the main road without too much of a problem for most people.

There are a few things to note, the Villa is advertised as 700 meters from the beach -- that distance must have been taken IF you could walk directly to the beach, which you cannot. We are able bodied people -- 2 of the family are professional athletes -- it is about a 15/20 minute casual walk to/from the beach, and you do have to cross a busy 2 lane road. However, once you get to the beach, there are restaurants, bars and the water is excellent.

Negatives are that there was very little hot water in the showers -- so plan on a 3 minute shower. There should be instructions on how to use the microwave and washer/dryer -- we were not able to use those appliances, and the room safes are tricky, so test them before putting anything inside. We were told that house addresses do not exist, so if you order-in food or need a taxi, it is really complicated to tell them where you are, so plan on long delays, recommend using Navigo -- but our experience was that they were rarely available. For getting around the island -- I highly recommend using their preferred taxi driver Kate (her business cards are in the house). She is a bit more expensive than Navigo, but she is dependable and a safe driver. Her English is very good, and when you call her, tell her you are at 'Christian Villa'. If you are using a local taxi to get back to the Villa, tell them to head to the Jungle Club (its easy to direct them to the house). Also, highly recommend going to the Jungle Club, the food was tasty and the view is incredible day and night -- the Club does have transportation, and recommend using it, it's a steep climb.

The caretakers (Wyn and his wife) are wonderful, friendly, hard-working and they along with their dogs Jeff and Jack made my day by going on walks with us, any issues and Wyn is there right away to fix the problem. Sue is easily contacted via WhatsApp, and they all do try to make your stay wonderful.

“Great villa, lovely view. Had a wonderful stay!”
Reviewed 23 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We had a wonderful time staying at this villa. The view was lovely, all the rooms were a great size and the kitchen and living area suited us fine.

The location is pretty good, we didn't mind the walk down to the road which only takes about 10 minutes and although the hill is relatively steep on the way back up we walked back up most days as well as we found it easier than booking taxis to and from the villa door. It also meant we could pick up a taxi from the road without booking and waiting for a company one which often turned out cheaper, Even if you do book ,make sure you negotiate on the price as they always offered a very high price.

The beach is very close as well as a handful of restaurants which you can walk to in 20 minutes or so and if not a very quick taxi.

The housekeeper was excellent, cleaning the villa and also for a small extra cost cooking us a fantastic Thai dinner one night which was brilliant. Sue the manager was also very helpful with suggestions of things to do or where to go for supermarkets, beach, bar etc. She was also very quick to reply if we had any questions.

We would definitely book this villa again, thanks for a great stay!

“Beautiful villa with stunning view”
Reviewed 7 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

I stayed at the villa for 6 nights December/January. Truly beautiful house with stunning views. As others have said: the pictures don't do justice and its even better in real life. Everything you need is provided and the people at the villa were really nice. Only downside is that it isn't very close to Chaweng, so you need motorbikes or a taxi to go to the city/beach. The owners can arrange one to pick you up at anytime so that never was a problem. We had a lot of rain, but I guess that's just bad luck!

“Nothing short of amazing!!!”
Reviewed 14 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

I along with 10 friends just returned from Thailand of which one week in Koh Samui brought us too stay at this amazing villa. The photos don't do it justice on how amazing the living space, bedrooms, pool and especially the panoramic sea view is. The villa was spacious and allowed 11 of us to move about freely. The villa had all amenities, making the villa feel like a home away from home. Great secluded location just outside the main drag of Chaweng, making it a peaceful environment whilst also still being able to commute into the main area easy by Taxi or Motorbike. The villa's housekeeping were a gorgeous Thai couple who went above and beyond, cleaning the villa everyday and one night cooking us up the most delicious thai food. On behalf of the 11 of us we would like to say a big thank you for having us, we hope to return. I highly recommend this for families or groups of friends. If you stay here be sure to go to Jungle Club which is a restaurant even higher in the mountain, offering insane views of Koh Samui.

“Very lovely villa”
Reviewed 21 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We stayed in villa at the end of March 2016 for a week. We like villa very much and allso views from villa and house stuff was great! The villa fit very well for us (9-person group of friends). Only problem that comes to mind is perhaps the location, which is a little far from city but we solved that problem by renting motorbikes. The owner is very reliable and you caught she very easily if there's any problems.
