“Great time”
Reviewed 3 June 2013 via mobile

Stayed at the villas with two mates in April 2013. Jan was excellent, not in your face all the time but there when you needed him. Good location but you will need peds or a car to get to the busy bit. Place was very clean and looked after.

So we had some experience with subj. The service was bad: wastebin was standing at the villa and it was smelling horrible. We should have been asking thai boy to fix it all the time! They clean the villa every 4th day, our children have it done well with glass table and living room and we have very unpleasant dialogue with Yan, the owner. He intonaded like a boss that the cleaning time is only 2 hours, and his boy was cleaning 4 hours and next time we will be charged 1000 baht. He gave us advise to clean it ourselves and showed us devices for that. All the time we felt that Yan or his thai boyfriend are watching us. The area and the pool are shared so if you are looking for private and seclude holidays, try something better.
There is no AC in the living room, and it's getting realy hot when you cook. Once I turned on the fan and spicies were everywhere but not on the table...
We rented a car from Yan, the owner and he charged us extra money for car wash. During check out he was investigated throughly every room that I felt uncomfortable, because we were short of thai cash and have paid for car wash and for bbq and for electricity so we got surprised before check out.
Decor is ok, the pool is nice. But if you want to feel cramped and pay for every step there go to Bann Luxor Villa

Thank you for leaving us your comments and providing me with an opportunity to explain our policies.

It is true that our complimentary villa cleaning service is every 4 nights and it is a "light service" intended to help the guests in keeping the premises clean. The cleaning service comprises of vacuuming floors, emptying rubbish bins, changing linen and doing up beds, rinsing the bathrooms, providing fresh towels and toilet paper. It is generally restricted to about 2-3 hours work. If there is time left the cleaner will even wash your dishes. But, if the house is excessively dirty and stained, for instance because little children are unsupervised and allowed to do whatever they want including staining the floor, sticking chewing gum on walls and furniture pieces, or because the cook-tops are misused and covered with grease, we consider that a "house damage" that may result in extra charges. In essence, our guests are under obligation to maintain the rented premises in reasonably clean condition.

It is not true that there was some smelly waste bin at the villa at check-in as the premises are provided to our guests thoroughly clean. There is an outside bin that is emptied every morning, and as long as the guest cares to place their own rubbish in it, nothing should go smelly inside the house.

The air-conditioning has now been installed in the living area down-stairs as it has been pointed out that the area may get hot during cooking. Not many of our guests cook extensively as dinning out at a great variety of inexpensive restaurants around is usually part of their holiday plan at Samui.

Lastly, we provide our own car for rent to our guests at special, below market value rates. But, if the car is rented out just for few days and returned excessively dirty we need to send it off for cleaning and hence charge the cleaning fee of 300 THB (about US$10) that happened in your case. Unfortunately, I did not notice the missing door button at the back door that you should have also been charged for. I guess I didn't "investigate thoroughly" enough.

I had a lovely time with Jan and his team. The villas are facing the shared pool and if you're lucky, you can meet other families staying in the other villas. Although Baan Luxor is not on the beach, we hired a car (very cheap rates) and drove to many different beaches during the day. Otherwise we would laze by the pool. The villas are clean, functional and very nicely decorated.
But most of all, we felt very welcomed by Jan's warm and friendly attitude. Thanks Jan for a fabulous and memorable stay.

We stayed at Baan Luxor Villas for 3 nights and we are very pleased with our stay. The villa we had was clean, spacious and was nicely decorated. The pool was right on our doorstep and for most of our stay we had it completely to ourselves which was a nice bonus! Away from the absolute center of the hazzle we enjoyed a relaxing stay and felt very at ease. We also booked Jan for a one day guided tour around the island. He was an excellent guide and took us to many interesting places. We would highly reccomend this! Overall our stay at Baan Luxor Villas met our expectations and more so. Thank you, Jan, for a lovely stay!

Room Tip: This is absolute value for money if you want a relaxing stay! You will have no worries and feel so a...

After many web searches and heaps of review reading, we decided to brave it and book Baan Luxor. If you are like us, nervous about booking a private villa.. Don't be. From the moment we arrived at the airport with Jan's welcome sign we were in heaven. When we arrived at the Villa we were like 2 kids at Christmas.. The Villa was gorgeous!! We walked in, our mouths open - lots of oohs and Aarhus, and Jan said go up and look at the master bedroom. Wow.. Gorgeous room with balcony overlooking pool and private spa in corner... Totally private. We had the best two weeks at Baan Luxor, and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Jan & Kye were adorable.. They were there if we needed them for anything...whilst at the same time leaving us alone to our privacy. Baan Luxor is 4 Villas, designed so that one is not looking at the other... Total privacy. the pool is shared but it is not a problem or intrusion on you pleasure. The whole experience of staying at BL was wonderful. We are a couple in our 50's, we like our comforts, and we like our privacy.. Baan Luxor delivered on all our needs and expectations. If you are reading this review, and are looking for an alternative to the rules, restrictions and expenses attached to a resort - book BL you will not be disappointed. We were paying 300 baht to go into Chaweng, easy - you just walk down the drive and flag a taxi. Some of the reviews mention difficulty with taxi's we did not find this to be the case... Jan is also available when ever you need to drive you. Wonderful... Just do it!!

I stayed at Baan Luxor with 3 of my girl friends for a week and we really enjoyed it! Immediately it felt so comfortable and safe, within a day we were calling it home. On our first night Tanida welcomed us and even took us to the grocery store in her car which was so lovely of her. We were even able to text her our questions when we had any and she would check up on us to make sure we were okay. The rooms are lovely and the balcony beautiful. We particularly loved the pool which felt so private and has a shaded area too. The secure gate into the villas made us feel very comfortable. Although sometimes a bit tricky as not all the gadgets as you would have at home, we were able to cook meals in our kitchen and the large space in the loungeroom even allowed us to do exercise! It was so lovely to wake up in this place. If day time you can quite easily walk down to the main street for a taxi but the staff are happy to help organise a taxi pick-up and we found the most lovely taxi driver who would always come to get us! It is located quite close to the supermarket, the beach and the airport so is perfect. Thank you for our stay, we really enjoyed it and recommend it to anyone! Also any thing that anyone has complained about on this website has been addressed and improved on :) The only thing we would suggest is that the towels be exchanged and bins taken out during the stay as we couldn't do this, and maybe a couple more beach towels! Otherwise, perfect.

We gave just got back from a beautiful two and a bit week stay at Baan Luxor and loved it. From the stunning saltwater pool and lush gardens to the private outdoor jacuzzi off the main bedroom, this villa has it all. The owner Jaan was just outstanding, drive me to the supermarket and showed me where everything so was as soon as we arrived so we could stock up and keep the four children happy. Drove us many places, offered advice on food, shopping beaches, boat trips you name it. He couldn't have done enough for us, thank you Jaan for being such a wonderful host and ensuring that we had everything wee needed. If you are looking for a private, beautiful Villa that is close to Chaweng and Bophut this is the one. The kids loved it, my husband loved it and do did I. Will definately return to Baan Luxor!!!
