Being the very first guest, as an amazing experience … spectacular view, the villa itself a poetry, beautiful colours, boutique, unique and comfortable as well. So far my best air bnb place I stayed at. John is awesome, take care of everything, is always there when needed. A fulltime service. The only thing … it is eally up up up the hill. Have to be a fearless and experienced motorbike driver. I enjoyed the ride, but maybe not everyone does.
This place is perfect, from the spacious living and bed room to the large sun deck for lounging and of course the pool built into the deck. There is a kitchen to cook if need be and the house is so inviting that you will want to stay there for the duration of your stay on Koh Tao. The pictures you see here are accurate and the villa is stunning. The bathrooms are the best we had in Thailand, stand up shower, running hot water, etc. everything in the villa is brand new and the space is arranged beautifully. Also, the bed was the most comfortable we had in Thailand and the large bay windows that span the entire front of the villa make for great views everywhere. The owners are amazing and met us when we arrived at the Villa. Since it is on a hill, they arranged for a taxi to drop us off. The power company had a mandatory power outage when we were there, but the owners have a generator on site to accomodate their guests so the outage was not noticeable. The owners gave us a cell phone to use while we were on the island; we used it to arrange taxis, and communicate when we were checking out. I would recommend renting a motorbike to get to and from the villa as it isn’t walking distance to either town and the road up to the villa is a little steep, but not unmanageable. The villa is located centrally on the island so you can easily head to Sairee or Mae Haad within minutes. It also has views of both beaches and all of the boats on the water lit up at night. I can’t say enough about this place. You will love it.
