Interaction with guests
Once you have paid for your stay in full, your particulars (phone number and email) are made available to me. I forward that information to our wonderful manager in Samui, Sue Williams, and she will immediately contact you to arrange complementary airport pickup or dock pickup and anything else you may need. You will be picked up at the airport and delivered to the villa where you will be given keys and a tour of the villa and answer any further questions you may have. I am the owner and live in Vancouver, BC, Canada. I am in constant contact with Sue. She is fabulous! She will take great care of you and your needs.
Warm regards,
Diana Carr

We had a great stay for 7 nights. Sue, the villa manager was very helpful and always available. The villa is in a lovely quite setting away from the busy areas, close to the beach with good food/drink options nearby. Definately recommend the villa for a relaxing stay.

A very relaxing holiday with all the amenities that you require and so very clean and neat. A lovely garden to relax in and a pool equally appealing and refreshing. I would love to come and maybe in the near future. Thankyou for such a lovely time.

About the neighbourhood
The Ban Tai area

Events and festivalsBuffalo Fighting Festival One of the best-known festivals on Ko Samui is its Buffalo Fighting Festival, which is held on special occasions such as New Years Day and Songkran. Unlike Spanish bull-fighting, the fighting on Ko Samui is fairly harmless. The fighting season varies according to some ancient customs and ceremonies. The buffalo are beautifully decorated with ribbons and gold-painted leaves. Before the contest which lasts just two rounds, monks spray them with holy water. The winning owner typically takes home millions of baht in prize money.

Getting around
Car hire is not necessary in Samui, but some guests prefer to do so. The local transit (red pickup truck with two benches in the back, covered, called 'songtao') is very convenient. Ring Road is the main road which goes around the island. Simply flag down the songtao, arrange a price with the driver (50-100 baht, depending on far you are going), and get on. Ring the bell on the roof when it's time to get off! Simple and fun! Many guests hire motorbikes (scooters, really) to get around. The business next door to our villa, Koi) can provide anything you need: scooters, car hire, taxi, massage, esthetics). If you are going out for dinner, it's best to hire a taxi. All the businesses around the villa offer taxi service.
Car not needed
How to get there
You can get to Koh Samui by plane (direct) or budget airline to Surathani and then a ferry to the island. You can also get from Bangkok to Surathani by coach, bus or train. We include free transfer to and from your arrival destination on the island. We are happy to organize a car or motorbike for you, just ask.
