  • Simply amazing

    "This house is just brilliant. Not only were John and his property manager extremely friendly, helpful and quick to respond, but the house itself was spectacular. The photos do not do it justice. Not only is the house big (set over three floors), it is also extremely well equipped and beautifully furnished. It is set in a quiet holiday home type village just off the main road (you cannot hear this main road over the sound of all the wildlife) with great views over the sea. It is about a 5-10 minute walk down from the house to Bang Por beach (one of the most beautiful and quietest on the island). There is a Family Mart and a 7 Eleven in walking distance, if you can stand the heat, and a big Tesco 15km drive away. Within walking distance there are some fantastic, and cheap, restaurants, Muay Thai gyms and spas - I definitely recommend the Vara Spa (at The Sea resort just opposite the entrance to Santi Thani village); if you go between 12-4pm its 30% off - even better! I would recommend hiring scooters for about £5 per day and also hiring a pickup (both can be provided by the staff on site). The map on the site is confusing; the property is on the north coast of Koh Samui. I cannot find a single fault with Baan Faan, except I had to come home. I have recommend it to all my work colleagues, who may well be booking their next holidays now and I will definitely be coming back. Thank you John and Khun Au."

  • Great vacation

    "The Villa was beautiful and the location is very convenient. Reflecting back at the service, everybody basically stayed out of our way. The service was there but I have seen better. Dul, our villa manager was helpful. Both my older daughter and myself receive many mysterious bug bites on our arms and faces. We believe there is something biting us during our sleep, perhaps you should ask the Villa manager to look into it. The villa itself is located very close to the beach, meaning anyone with the intention of coming inside the vicinity can do so without any problems. This was one of our main concerns. I do believe Koh Samui is a relatively crime free place but no place is 100% safe. Another point I wish to make is the price for the food charges. The food charge was similar to what a 5 star hotel would charge. Yet there are many competitive choices right around the corner of the villa. I would suggest to amend the price to make it more attractive for the guests to eat at the villa."

  • Superb Villa with great views

    "We are a family of 4 adults who stayed for a week In September 2016 at this villa. The owner, Arjan, was very helpful during the booking process, answering questions quickly and fully. We weren't going to arrive until after 10pm but this wasn't a problem. A driver was at the airport to meet us, arranged as part of the rental, and we had provided a shopping list beforehand and all of our provisions were in the fridge on our arrival. The villa is beautiful with good quality furniture, fittings and accessories making it feel like a home rather than a holiday let. The photographs on the website don't do it justice. There is a wonderful sea view from the master bedroom and from the upper floor balcony. At any time of the day the view is beautiful but the sunsets had us reaching for our cameras every single day. Each of the bedrooms have king size beds and en-suite bathrooms and are very spacious, all with a view of the pool. The en-suite bathroom of the master bedroom has a fabulous bath but what we didn't realise is that it doesn't include a toilet. You need to use the toilet along the corridor which also serves the ground floor. It wasn't a problem but it we would have preferred to have had just one washbasin rather than two and have a toilet instead. The pool is a decent size and the addition of the waterfall feature is lovely. It was immaculately clean and the pool man and gardener appeared very regularly to keep the property in a beautiful condition. The villa manager Au organised for us to have a chef one evening and the food was delicious. However she told us the price per hour and how long the cooking and shopping would take but she didn't mention that 2 ladies would be coming. The meal was fantastic and was a nice experience but it was far more expensive than we expected. Au was very helpful during our holiday but I was disappointed that when we asked her about arranging a trip to the Ang Thong National Marine Park she was using an operator who had the most appalling reviews on Trip Advisor. Ordinarily I would have just trusted the recommendation of the villa manager but having seen that one operator had such an appalling record I decided to check first and I'm very glad that I did. The villa is set high up on a steep hillside and a car is essential. Overall we had a wonderful holiday and would definitely recommend this villa but note that the open staircase is not suitable for young children."
