"The view is amazing and ideal location on the island making it easy to get to Chaweng and Fishermans village easily. You get the view because you are on a very steep hill and not all transport can get up the hill but the manager arranged a minibus taxi that we mainly used throughout our 3 week stay. Sometimes a taxi will drop below taxi, and while it isn't a long walk it is very steep so something to bear in mind if walking difficulties etc.
There is plenty of space in the property for all guests and furnishings are comfortable. However please note the staircase to upstairs is external at the side of the property which is not stated anywhere and was not ideal for us because of sleeping arrangements. This meant our older children were separated from us and had to be locked in downstairs and because you can't hear between the floors we couldn't hear the kids when they were sick on a few nights. It will work for some families and families sharing but feel its important to know so you can make decision if suitable.
The manager of the property was very helpful and any issues were quickly resolved and he was contactable immediately, nothing was too much trouble.
There are villas being built behind and to the side of the villa, which meant we were woke every morning at 7am when banging and work started and so relaxing by the pool wasn't as peaceful as we would have liked, especially when you just wanted to enjoy the tranquil view. Once the main structures up (which won't be too long) the noise should stop. We can see why you would want to build in this location, the view is gorgeous, however if we had known we probably would have chosen an alternative until the building works completed as we love to relax by a pool and indeed not have to get up earlier than when we go to work at home!
This was our 3rd visit to the island, we love the beaches, the food and the people. We didn't try the local hotel by the villa but it looked very nice. We did charter a boat over to koh phanagn with samui boat charter which were better value than others we looked at. A fantastic day out, great boat and crew and would recommend the trip and the company.
Overall we had a lovely holiday but feel the above should have been noted and have mentioned for others incase they are factors that could spoil a holiday and you want to check building progress."
