Interaction with guests
Guests have entire access to Villa Emerald during their stay.

I live close by and am on hand for any help or assistance during your visit.

We do strongly recommend the use of the complimentary vehicle which we provide for you with this booking to go to the beach, restaurants, local attractions etc, If you do not feel a confident driver and do not wish to make use of the car, there are several private hire car companies (of which we can give you telephone numbers so that you can make your own arrangements) that can pick you up at the entrance of Sitara, which is a 4 or 5 minute walk down the hill. This will be at your own cost.

We had a wonderful one week stay at the villa. Everything was perfect including the amazing views from basically anywhere in the villa, the pool/jacuzzi, unique kitchen, beautiful bedroom, and even driving around in the included vehicle. Much appreciated, we will be back! Emily and Brad

We had the best stay in Villa Emerald. The stunning ocean views were out of this world. It's a beautiful villa and a car was provided as well. The photos are really good, but the real thing is even better. Photos can never capture the wonderful tropical nature of the villa and atmosphere. So easy as well; we were picked...

Dave was extremely helpful, by picking us up from our 1st hotel, and dropping us at our other hotel. We initially planned for a 7 day stay in Koh Samui, which changed to 13 days, so we booked in advanced for March. Work had other plans delaying our trip for 3 months. He also re-booked us comfortably, even refunding our...

About the neighbourhood
Villa Emerald is located at Sitara Retreat which is situated close to the southern tip of the island. Nearby to the villa many of the island's main attractions are only a short drive away, which include Lamai beach, Butterfly Garden, Waterfalls, Aquarium, Elephant trekking, Grandmother, Grandfather Rocks, water sports, horse riding, Thai cookery classes, amongst others. There are many fine and varied restaurants serving Thai and Western dishes, all within 5-10 minutes drive from the villa.

The southern part of the island still has that rustic charm appeal that the whole of Samui boasted years ago. The beaches on the south remain undeveloped, due mainly to the shallow coastline. If you like to explore you can still find areas where you have the beach to yourself, and never too far aw...
Getting around
The use of a car or moped is the easiest way to get around. The Villa is located in the quieter part of Koh Samui, unlike the busy north of the island. Villa Emerald has outstanding ocean views and where you have this, you have a hill to climb. The villa is positioned in an outstandingly beautiful location, and is a 250 mtr length of steep hill from the entrance at Sitara Retreat. We therefore strongly recommend the use of the complimentary four wheel drive; or if you are both very confident riders, two mopeds, which we can provide for you in your rental price, and have waiting at the villa on your arrival. It is a condition of Sitara Retreat that if you use a car it will need to be a four wheel drive.
