The villa is detached and set in a totally private, walled garden with its own entrance and parking area. The living area is elegantly furnished, open plan and has high vaulted ceilings to give an even greater feeling of space and serenity. There is a 55' 3D television with full surround and multi zone speaker system. Each of the spacious bedrooms is also equipped with led TVs and a play station 2 for the children in bedroom 2. Ban Tai is a quiet little suburb bit it is only minutes away from Nathon, the main town of Koh Samui and Maenam, a characterful one time fishing village with its lovely Temple. The location makes Ban Tai and ideal holiday destination for those seeking something a little more tranquil. Ban Tai is surrounded by a series of small and longer sandy bays that run from the western-most point of Mae Nam through to the north-west corner of Koh Samui, a peaceful part of the island. The villa is located only 300 meters from Ban Tai beach, a long stretch of white sand with stunning views over to Koh Phangnan. There are areas with good swimming waters and others with more coral. As with its neighbouring Bang Por, the beach offers a number of very good Thai restaurants where you can dine in a beautiful setting. Along the main road on the way to either Maenam or Bang Por, there are a few spas offering a range of treatments including whole detox programs, yoga sessions as well as massage treatments. The whole area enjoys an atmosphere of rest and relaxation, and a holiday in Ban Tai could represent a complete detoxification of the spirit. Ban Tai is in easy reach of the hills which present some of the most stunning views of the island. Maenam on the doorstep with its selection of excellent restaurants and trendy bohemian town feel. Many villa renters on Baan Tai choose to stay within the comfort of their own villas and its surroundings, seeking in general the private escape that the location so readily provides. From Ban Tai villas you can drive easily into the hills and enjoy some of the most spectacular views on the island. Baan Tai beach is certainly an ideal setting for those seeking a more sedate holiday away from the hustle and bustle but at the same time retaining its tropical magic. The villa is finished to a high standard. The living room is modern and elegant. There is a full surround music and sound system with dual zones and indoor and outdoor speakers. There is wireless internet and a full satellite package. The kitchen is fully equipped with modern appliances and plenty of cutlery, crockery and glass ware. There is a double sink and drainer as well as an additional bar/vegetable sink in the breakfast bar. All work surfaces are a black galaxy marble. The dining set is a contemporary teak design, with a dramatic black chandelier above. A perfect setting should you wish to entertain. Each of the bedrooms has a deluxe ensuite bathroom as well as the guest toilet that is off of the living room. Bedroom 2 has two additional full sized guest beds that fit under the twin beds in the room. They are on wheels and can be moved to accommodate your families requirements. Further details outdoors: The garden is fully unclosed and is entered through the gate that leads off of its own private driveway and parking area. The tropical garden is a peaceful place to sit with views up the palm covered hills. The pool was designed with the owners children in mind. It has a chlorine free cleansing system, making is kinder to your skin and eyes. The pool is approx 1 meter in the shallow end sloping to 1.8 meters at the deep end with two wide steps to sit on and relax. The garden sala seats 6 people comfortably while the terrace and sun deck has a further 4 sun loungers and sun bathing pads.

About the neighbourhood
Baan Tai: is the village where you are staying, previously a small fishing hamlet, it is now turning into the desirable place to stay for a more relaxed, family type vacation. It is serviced by many restaurants (all within walking distance) and small, friendly shop bars. We recommend MK, which is the closest restaurant to the villa. They also normally hold a happy hour between 5-7 pm for delicious cocktails and serve Thai and German foods. Mark will also prepare your food for take out if you wish. Just turn out of driveway to your left and you will find MK 50m on right. If you turn right out of the driveway you will find Mai tai restaurant on you right, about 250 meters down the road on the way to the beach. Along the beach there is a
Getting around
Koh Samui is the third largest island of Thailand after Phuket and Koh Chang and one of the most popular destinations for travelers. In recent years it developed to a tropical beach resort but still maintained its charm and has everything to offer - from coconut tree fringed beaches to tropical jungles to a vibrant nightlife. Popular beaches are Chaweng, Lamai, Bophut & Maenam. Activities include elephant trekking, canoeing, sailing, diving, golfing, fishing, biking and all you can think of. There is also a lot to see, like waterfalls, temples and jungles as well as a butterfly garden, an aquarium and tiger zoo, monkey theatre, snake and crocodile farm and a tropical zoo to name some.
