Property description

-- Simple charm for travellers who enjoy nature, quality and value --

Enchanted Hills is an idyllic setting for couples, families and individuals with a taste for the road less travelled. Off the beaten track, our villa offers rarely found peace and privacy, while ensuring safety and convenience to the nearby restaurants, spas, shops and other amenities.

Nestled in the pristine hilltops of the secluded Santithani estate, Enchanted Hills is surrounded by natural beauty with views of the rolling hills, forests and distant islands. The sounds of the jungle and two nearby waterfalls echo through the hills during the raining season. The air feels fresh in the hills, particularly with the morning breeze flowing through the open house.

Inspired by the Mediterranean motif, the home was designed to accommodate comfort and outdoor living, optimizing sunlight and sunset views. The fusion of lush landscape and vibrant decor balances the tranquility and liveliness -- creating a space for contemplation as well as sociability. Open and inviting layout of the living, dining and entertaining spaces with high / vaulted ceilings --featured throughout the home -- add to the villa's spaciousness and functionality of everything being within sight and reach. Furnished with the main purpose of comfort and ease, the interior is subtle yet elegant.

The residence consists of the main house with the open living area on the first level and two private bedrooms with ensuite baths on the second. A guest wing connected to the main house by a terrace and outdoor dining beneath has two bedrooms and ensuite baths -- allowing for full privacy for guests.

A large garden surrounding the house practically conceals it from view and other homes in this quiet and charming neighborhood. On a busy day, one may spot perhaps ten cars passing by on the below access road winding through the hills, mostly neighbors or maintenance staff making their rounds. Yet the house feels sheltered even from this infrequent passage. The garden is made of indigenous trees and plants that grew here long before the house was built. Bougainvilleas, cactai, morning glory and few other varieties were added for contrast and a touch of flare. Several fruit trees including mango, coconut, papaya and cashew nut still produce seasonal fruits that can be had right off the tree in the right season.

The villa management is professional, responsive and tailored to our unique community. The estate is efficiently managed and guarded by a Thai British property management firm, which also offers various other services deliverable to our villa, such as car rentals, child care, chefs, massages, and pre-arrival grocery shopping among others. The rates are very reasonable and we'll be happy to get you in contact with the management.

You may note that our rates are lower in comparison to other similar villas. This is so becasue our holiday home is not a business; we rent it in order to cover the high expenses of maintaining this lovely home in the tropics in the best condition and with as many services as possible. At the same time, we are happy to share it with those like-minded travelers who sense that Enchanted Hills may be the place for them.

We are open to offers and particular circumstances. We appreciate ecologically minded guests with low AC use and offer rebates accordingly. If in doubt, send us an email.

Bang Po NORTH-WEST tip of Koh Samui

Car: Recommended

House is on the NORTH-WEST tip of Koh Samui -- between Santiburi Golf course and Four Seasons Resort (map on HomeAway shows incorrect location).

Koh Samui -- a tropical island in the Gulf of Siam -- is 1 hour flight time from Bangkok & Phuket and 2 hour flight from Singapore. Koh Samui, which can be circled on the coast road within 2 hours, is within 30 min boat ride to pristine Angthong National Marine Park (great for boating, hiking, kayaking and snorkling), 30 min from Koh Pangan (famous for full moon parties) and 1.5 hrs boat ride to Koh Tao (known for excellent scuba diving). Enchanted Hills Villa is situated on top of the mountaineous Santi Thani estate -- a residential community up from the Bang Po beach on the north-west tip of Samui. Just 25 min from the Samui International Airport, 5 min down the hill to a nearly deserted beach, Bang Po, and various health spas and restaurants,10 minutes to Lotus Tesco supermarket in Nathon village, and 20 minutes to Chaweng. The estate consists of 50 private villas, each individually custom designed and built, with 15+ nationalities and a German/Thai restaurant with stunning views. The estate is professionally managed by Coconut Hills Company, a British-Thai conglamorate, and includes a security roving patrol at night.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We currently reside in Indonesia with our three school age children. Having worked overseas with humanitarian and development organizations for nearly two decades, we've trotted the globe settling in eight countries over four continents. Yet the place we've come to view as our home is Samui where we truly feel happy and at peace. Our British neighbor manages our property, along with other villas in the estate. Her Thai staff is responsive to any of our renters needs from booking massages, cooks, and cars to key exchanges, cleaning, repairs, and anything in between. Our property is fully furnished with amenities of a normal home. We would like our guests to feel fully 'at home' while enjoying the beauty and tranquility of the enchanted hills surrounding the home.

Why the Owner Chose Mae Nam Beach (Mae Nam, Ko Samui District, Surat Thani, Thailand):
tranquility + nature + luxury = rejuvenation

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Please read our guests' feedback as we could not describe the unique benefits of Enchanted Hills any better than our guests based on their actual experiences.
