About david smart

I moved to Koh Samui 2005 from Cirencester in the UK, where I had my own Flooring business. I was also involved in property development and rental and converted a large number of various style properties in the UK. From my first visit to Thailand in 1990 I had a growing desire to live in Thailand and create a new challenge. Inspired by opportunity for business I chose Koh Samui.

Moving here, I first created 3 properties; Palm View, Butterfly Garden and Hideaway Villa. Later, we completed 3 more villas on the beautiful ocean view, Sitara Retreat, named Villa Crystal, Emerald and Sapphire. We also manage Villa Serendipity for a neighbour from Hong Kong.

In 2017 a further property was built, namely 1 Bed Villa Amber.

I have returned to Europe twice in 10 years of living here - one day in Milan and 3 days in watch my beloved Spurs in the Champions League!!

Why david smart chose Na Mueang

I felt very fortunate in being able to obtain the very special area of land on the residency known as Sitara.

I have taken great pride in creating and building 3 villas in this wonderfully tranquil and peaceful area of the island.

I took full advantage of the beautiful nature provided in this location, by imaginatively creating the villa to be built in amongst the superb granite rocks, tropical greenery and swaying palm trees.

The superb open-plan, tropical-style Villa Emerald is located in the unspoiled south of the island, which largely remains unaffected by over-development that unfortunately blights the north.

The villa is set in the unique and beautiful location of the residency known as Sitara, which provides 24 hour security.

What makes this villa unique

Villa Emerald is a tropical-style open plan one Bedroom beautiful villa located on hillside land with amazing panoramic ocean views which is unrivalled anywhere else on the island of Koh Samui.

The unique feature of the villa is the stunning look and imaginative display of the beautifully-formed rock formation. It is located in the unspoiled south of the island which largely remains unaffected by over-development that unfortunately blights the north.

Set in the unique and beautiful location of the residency known as Sitara, Villa Emerald, with its high quality standards, provides a welcoming and special stay for anyone visiting the island of Koh Samui.

The villa provides many areas for guests to enjoy such as the salt water swimming pool, separate Jacuzzi, private mini Gym, Reading Area and all with magnificent ocean views to savour and enjoy.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I had a very relaxing and peaceful stay at Villa Emerald. Its a brand new beautiful villa. It has fantastic ocean views from virtually everywhere in the villa. I had a wonderful time here. I could really relax and appreciate the beauty and peaceful ambience all around me. David, the owner, has made a fantastic job of this villa, and he was so helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. I cant praise the service David and his team gave me high enough. Definitely the best villa I have stayed in!

Notes:
An automatic 4 x 4 Suzuki Vitara, or if you are both very confident riders, two mopeds, are provided in your rental price.

The villa is in an outstandingly beautiful location, and is 250 mtr length of steep hill from the entrance at Sitara Retreat. It is a condition of Sitara Retreat that if you use a car it needs to be a 4 wheel drive. For the beach, restaurants, local attractions etc, we strongly recommend using the complimentary vehicle. If you do not feel a confident driver, there are private hire car companies (we can give you tel numbers) that can pick you up at the entrance of Sitara, which is a 4/5 min walk down the hill. Should you decide to use the private hire facility this will be at your own cost. Private parking for a vehicle at the Villa, via steps up to the top car park.

A different but lovely experiance

  • 5 of 5

Me and my husband spent 5 days at this lovely villa. David was very accommodating, he picked us up from the airport and gave us lots of useful information on the way to the villa. The villa is spread across 3 floors, the living room, kitchen and dining room is all open planned, giving you the feeling you are living outdoors. The sea-views were beautiful from all floors, my favourite being from the bedroom.I recommend the villa to anyone who loves nature and being outdoors, my only advice is to make sure you wear mosquito repellent! Having a car included was very useful, we were able to travel around the whole island in the 5 days we were there. There is a supermarket just down the road for all your breakfast needs. Thank you for a lovely experience David

What a fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa looked amazing on the photos and it was in real life. Everything went perfectly from being collected at the airport by Dave to the time I had there. It. Was very peaceful and private and I really enjoyed just staying there enjoying the sun and cooling off in the pool. Everything you want is there and Dave is constantly thinking of ways to improve ve your stay. Drawbacks - 53 steps up to the car park and the hard bed. Bit the overall experience was fantastic and far outweighed the negatives that I found. Dave has several villas all finished to a high standard at various locations. Would I recommend Dave and his villas - absolutely if I return to Koh Samui then I will certainly return thanks Dave.

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

What can we say about Villa Emerald, David and his team - well they are all fantastic.

The Property is really quirky, in a good way, much of it is open to the elements, which in a place like Koh Samui is amazing, the wallpaper to you living room is the natural forest of the island or the sea surrounding it. The design is contemporary where you want it to be and incorporates the natural rocks of the hill side. The view is outstanding and the pool and hot tub seem to be at the correct temperature at any time of day. The Air-conditioned bedroom creates a cool and welcoming escape with a fantastic balcony view of the sunset.

David, Neung, and the other members of their team we encountered during our stay were incredibly friendly and welcoming. Neung was able to give us loads of local information on our drive from the airport to the villa and David was always on the end of the phone if we had any questions. Having the a car as part of the hire costs also made the villa very affordable.

We hope to return again as soon as we can.

Shear Luxury

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic Villa. The property is well maintained throughout its a big Villa with lots of space a huge kitchen with dining area, all mod cons in the kitchen and even has a utility room with washing machine. The lounge is well laid out with seating area and TV, DVD, and Satellite. The pool and Jacuzzi are very welcome when you have had to much sun. The bedroom is big and the en suit bathroom is has all modern features, In the morning you can open the curtains and look out on to the islands its just a fantastic sight when you wake up.

There are lots of restaurants local and as it is a small island its easy to get to other parts where the choice of food is fantastic. We hired a car from David for the time we were there which let us explore the island and all of the different restaurants available the food is excellent. If your into sports there's kayaking at one of the local bays and even horse riding is only 5 min drive, we tried the local butterfly farm and also the local zoo 10 min drive.

David and his staff are always there if you have a problem cleaners in every 3 days change bedding and towels.

The best thing about the Villa its QUIET all you can hear are the birds its so peaceful,

At the end of the holiday David returns us to the airport for our flight home, and that was the only disappointment of our holiday having to leave.

Would certainly return

Ruhiger, erholsamer Aufenthalt mit tollem Ausblick

  • 4 of 5

Das Haus ist so wie beschrieben. Wir haben uns hier sehr wohl gefühlt. Die offenen Räume empfanden wir so, als wenn man ein Teil der Umgebung ist. Der Ausblick ist spektakulär. Unsere Bedenken bezüglich der möglichen Tierwelt haben sich nicht bestätigt. Geckos, mal ein Frosch am Teich und wenige Moskitos gehören halt dazu und haben nicht gestört.

Der Reinigungsservice war TOP, David hat unsere Anfragen schnell beantwortet und war auch sonst sehr zuverlässig und freundlich. Der Flughafentransfer hat super geklappt.

Die anderen 2 Villenbewohner haben wir nie gesehen, obwohl alle 3 Villen fast durchgängig ausgebucht waren. Man bekommt auch sonst kaum etwas von den anderen Bewohnern mit, da offensichtlich alle an einer ruhigen Atmosphäre interessiert sind und Rücksicht nehmen.

Normalerweise würden wir 5 Sterne ohne Bedenken geben, den Abzug gibt es für den schmutzigen Pool am Ankunftstag (wurde 1 Tag später gemacht), sowie aus unserer Sicht notwendige kleinere Renovierungsarbeiten (Wasserflecke an der Decke, rostige Gitter am Pool) und 2 defekte Küchengeräte. Alles nicht dramatisch, aber Empfehlung für die Verantwortlichen. Wir würden jederzeit wiederkommen, die Villa ist eine klare Empfehlung.

Owner's Response: Vielen Dank für Ihre Bewertung Olaf und wir hoffen, dass es Ihnen beiden gut geht. Vielen Dank für Ihre positiven Kommentare und wir freuen uns, dass Sie Ihren Aufenthalt genossen haben. Bezüglich des Pools kann ich bestätigen, dass es am Tag Ihrer Ankunft gerade bewölkt war, aufgrund der gründlichen Reinigung, die an diesem Morgen in Vorbereitung auf Ihren Besuch durchgeführt wurde. Nach Ihrem Aufenthalt und zwischen den Ankünften der Gäste werden Sie erfreut sein zu hören, dass wir die Gelegenheit genutzt haben, die Decke zu renovieren und frisch zu streichen. Zur gleichen Zeit wurden die Grills auch ersetzt. Alle Küchengeräte wurden überprüft und sind in gutem Zustand. Wir freuen uns auf Ihren Besuch in einer unserer Villen bei einem Rückflug nach Koh Samui.

Laem Set
Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

The quiet and secluded Laem Set beach is located a 5 min drive away. Lamai beach, arguably the finest on Samui, is just 10 min drive.

Villa Emerald is located at Sitara Retreat which is situated close to the southern tip of the island. Nearby to the villa many of the island's main attractions are a short drive away and include Lamai beach, Butterfly Garden, Waterfalls, Aquarium, Elephant trekking, Grandmother, Grandfather Rocks, Thai cookery classes, Thai boxing, horse riding, kayaking, amongst others. There are many fine and varied restaurants serving delicious Thai and Western dishes, all within 5-10 min drive from the villa.

The southern part of the island still has that rustic charm appeal that the whole of Samui boasted years ago. We are frequently told by guests they find the Thai people in this southern part of the island extremely hospitable, and welcoming. In the north where it is far more crowded and touristy on the island there is not always the opportunity to discover the true warmth and charm of the local people. The beaches on the south also remain undeveloped, due mainly to the shallow coastline. If you like to explore you can still find areas where you have the beach to yourself, and never too far away you will find a Thai restaurant where you can enjoy true authentic local dishes.

The villa is a 2-3 min drive, or 15 min walking distance (which is steep in a couple of places) to Laem Sett beach. It is a quiet and secluded beach and here one can spot the local fishermen, with their long tailed boats, come into shore. Located on the beach is the rustic Thai style Cool Bar where you can enjoy delicious food and a drink whilst soaking up the tranquil atmosphere.

Also within the charming area of Laem Sett there are several fine restaurants, serving Thai and Western food, small coffee shop, few small, quiet garden bars, several traditional Thai massage services, Yoga, two local taxi services and a travel agency.

Close by is ShaSa Resort, Centara Villas & Samui Orchid which opens its doors to non residents and has many facilities to enjoy, including smart restaurants and bars.

Five to ten min drive away is the fishing village of Baan Hua Thanon where fresh fish, fruit and vegetables are sold daily at the local market, together with small local shops, 24-hour Seven Eleven store, doctors surgery, a Wednesday Night Market and Chinese Temple, amongst other places to explore and enjoy.

Lamai beach, which is several kilometres long, has many attractions, and includes fine restaurants and varied water-sports.

Getting There:

We provide complimentary transport from the airport, ferry terminal or your hotel on the island, to Villa Emerald and a return journey (one in each direction).

Getting Around:

Once you have booked, we can arrange to have the reliable, runaround, automatic Suzuki Vitara 4x4 waiting for you, which is included as complimentary with this rental. Or if you are very confident drivers, two mopeds.

The use of a car or moped is the easiest way to get around. The Villa is located in the quieter part of Koh Samui, unlike the busy north of the island. Villa Emerald has outstanding ocean views and where you have this, you have a hill to climb. The villa is positioned in an outstandingly beautiful location, and is a 250 mtr length of steep hill from the entrance at Sitara Retreat. It is a condition of Sitara Retreat that if you use a car it will need to be a four wheel drive.

All our cars are insured, with the guest being responsible, and limited, for the first 15,000 Baht of any damage. There is no insurance on mopeds where the guest pays for any damage incurred.

It is the guest's responsibility to ensure that they also have their own comprehensive Travel & Health Insurance, and appropriate driving documentation for Thailand.

With the villa being located in a quieter part of the island, driving can be a more pleasurable experience. To go to the beach, restaurants, local attractions etc, we do strongly recommend the use of the complimentary vehicle which we provide for you with this booking. However, should you not feel a confident driver and do not wish to make use of the car, there are several private hire car companies (of which we can give you telephone numbers so that you can make your own arrangements) that can pick you up at the entrance of Sitara, which is a 4 or 5 minute walk down the hill. Should you decide to use the private hire facility this will be at your own cost.

There is private parking for a vehicle at the Villa, via steps up to the top car park.

Travel:

Samui International Airport is 35 min drive away. Ferries are located 25 mins away.

Distances:

The seaside town of Lamai is a 10 min drive, Chaweng is a 25 min drive. The Butterfly Garden, Aquaruim and Tiger Zoo are all within a few min drive.

A Lotus Tesco Superstore and also the popular large food supermarket, Makro, both located in Lamai, are only a 10 min drive from the villa.
