Villa - Entire home/apt · Bang Por, Ko Samui, Surat Thani 84330, Thailand

The Space

Nestled in the pristine hilltops of the secluded Santithani estate, Enchanted Hills is a destination in itself with surrounding natural beauty and tranquility. Views of the rolling hills, forests, and distant islands are seen from nearly every corner of this open house. The birds, crickets and faint wind-chimes offer a soothing melody year-round, whereas two nearby waterfalls echo through the hills during the raining season. The air feels fresh this high up, particularly with the morning breeze flowing through the house.

Enchanted Hills is an idylic setting for couples and families alike. Off the beaten track, the villa offers full privacy, safety, and yet it is conveniently located within easy access to the nearby restaurants, spas, shops and other amenities.

Inspired by the Mediterranean motif, the villa accommodates comfort and outdoor living, optimizing sunlight and sunset views. Every direction reflects the fusion of the lush landscape and the vibrant decor. Open floor design for living, dining and kitchen, enormous windows and doors, and high and vaulted ceilings make the villa spacious and practical allowing for everything to be within sight and reach. Furnished with the main purpose of ease and functionality, the interior is subtle yet elegant.

The first floor of the main house includes the open living area, and the second houses two en-suite bedrooms. A guest wing connected by a terrace and outdoor dining beneath includes two bedrooms and ensuite baths allowing for full privacy for guests.

A large garden surrounding the house practically conceals it from view from the below access road, which is accessible only by neighbors or maintenance staff. The garden is made of indigenous trees and plants that grew here long before the house was built. Bougainvilleas, cacti, Cambodia trees and few other varieties were added for contrast and a touch of flare. Several fruit trees: mango, coconut, papaya and cashew nut, still produce seasonal fruits. Enjoying these freshly picked for breakfast truly feels like living on the edge of a jungle.

The villa includes many quality amenities such as: private outdoor 12 meter swimming pool with infinity edge and built in Jaccuzi, launging chairs and beach towels, unlimited WiFi access, satelite flat screen TV, DVD players, parking, American kitchen with all appliances, washier & drier.

Although distances are short to many destinations, renting a car is strongly recommended for ease of mobility and given the mountainous terrain of the estate.

You will note that our rates are quite low in comparison to other similar villas. This is so becasue it is our holiday home and not a business, and 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 is the place for them.

Interaction with Guests

Our house manager, Emma, lives in the community and her staff are available 24/7 in case of an emergency. A driver picks up our guests at the airport and delivers them to our villa, where Khun Au welcomes our guests and assists with any services required. We as owners communicate with our guests via email, phone or (website hidden), as we currently reside outside of Thailand.

The Neighborhood

The estate is a residential community up the hills from one of the most sheltered and least developed beaches on the island on the north west tip of Samui -- and we hope it will stay that way. The community is comprised of over 50 private villas, each individually custom designed and built, and represents 15 or so nationalities. It is located just 25 minutes from the Samui International Airport, five minutes down to the beach with handful of beachfront restaurants and SPAs, and a short boat ride to nearby islands of Koh Phangan, Koh Tao and Angthong National Marine Park. It has one Thai-German restaurant with nice food and views within walking distance to the villa. The estate is professionally managed and guarded by a Thai British property management firm, which also offers various other services, such as car rentals, child care, chefs, massages, pre-arrival grocery shopping among others.

Getting around

Although distances are short to many destinations, renting a car is strongly recommended for ease of mobility and given the mountainous terrain of the estate. Our house manager can assist with car rental and have it delivered to the villa (starting rate of baht 1,200 and up). Alternatively vehicles can be rented from major car companies such as Hertz, Avis, Budget, etc at the Samui airport. For best car rental deals, we book online through (website hidden) which partners with ThaiRentACar in Samui.

  • The villa is awsome: the bedrooms are really nice and confortable and the swimming pool is big enough for swimming and relaxing. The personal is nice and helpfull. The only thing is that the place is far and high on the hills that's why the view is so great So you need to rent a vehicule to move out of the place. You cannot just walk.

  • We stayed in January 2014 in Eva her house and we had a perfect time there.The house included everything you need and Eva her staff are great they arranged everything we asked for. Unfortunately we didn`t met Eva in person but our corresponding by e-mail was good enough.I recommended this house at everybody the only thing you need is transportation we rented scooters and it was perfect.Next year we will come back for sure.

  • This place is great! It's in a beautiful location and the house itself is comfortable, clean, and perfect for the place that it's in. I was working remotely for a few days from the house, and the internet was quite acceptable for doing real work. It didn't work when we first got there, but the property manager got it worked out within a few hours.

    The property manager is another plus of this place. She and her associates were responsive and friendly. They even managed to get scooters delivered to the house within hours of getting there!

    The one downside is that there is not much near the house. You'll definitely want a car or scooters if staying here.

    Eva has a ton of good information in the house about what to do and where to go. We couldn't have been happier!

  • The Enchanted Hills is a really nice, very well equipped and children friendly villa.
    It is located in a less touristic part of Koh Samui, on the top of a secluded and charming hill. The views from there are stunning and there is a very quite and beautiful beach just 5 minutes drive away.

    We spent 1 week there and I will recommend it to anyone. We will definitely come back.

  • After Krabi we decided to enjoy Samui for 12 days. Despite a bit of confusion when we arrived at Samui, our Host was extremly nice to us. Khun Au and Eva have been marvellous hosts and everybody really enjoyed their place and their support. Khun Au, the local Service Manager was contacting us quite often (not too much and not too less) to check if everything was going properly. Eva contacted us also to ensure that things were going well! I definitely highly recommend people to stay at "EnchantedHillsVilla". The sea view is beautifull, the house is wide enough for five adults and very well furnished! It is true that the villa is a bit far from the main road and without any car or scooter it might be difficult to move from the villa to the rest of the island. Bang Po is nice place to be and not far from the villa you have the best places to enjoy Samui's sea food! The only thing you should be aware is that in Samui, from (phone number hidden), there is quite a lot of mosquitoes and you should protect yourselves! Thanks Eva and Khun Au for your warm welcoming and support during our stay...you make our trip!

  • We spent a blissful week at Enchanted Hills in April 2013 and there were seven of us.
    Prior to our stay Eva communicated regularly with us and provided us with excellent information regarding the villa and surrounds, transportation, things to do and so on.
    We were greeted at the airport and made to feel very welcome by the care-taking staff. Nothing was a problem. They were able to arrange a rental/loan car for us and answer any questions we had. The villa was cleaned twice in the week we were there.
    The information available at the villa enabled us to easily have food and massages delivered to us whenever we desired!
    The villa is very spacious, beautifully furnished and provided ample room for us to spread out and enjoy without being on top of each other.
    Enchanted Hills is wonderful and we enjoyed staying there very much. It was a beautiful and private oasis to escape to after exploring the island and partaking in the myriad of activities available to us on Samui. We highly recommend Eva, the lovely staff, and the beautiful villa and we'd visit again given the opportunity.

  • We had an absolutely wonderful stay at Enchanted Hills Villa. We had high expectations before we arrived and they were exceeded. Eva is the perfect host and the local staff do an admirable job of looking after the villa and all of its guests. The villa is located in a dense upland forest with superb views overlooking the sea from the infinity swimming pool. It provides a quiet sanctuary away from the busy coastal roads, and much needed respite from the more touristy centres. The villa itself is very well serviced and beautifully decorated. All the bedrooms are charming with lots of available living space. We were very impressed by the amount of care and attention that Eva and her staff provide for their guests - very often beyond the call of duty. Such excellent value for money is rare to find. Thank you Eva. We very much hope that we shall have the opportunity to return.

About
Ken and I currently live in Indonesia with our three school age children. We've lived and worked overseas for nearly two decades over four continents but decided to build a base in Koh Samui where we truly feel at home -- enjoying Thai hospitality, delicious cuisine and our pristine hilltops. Our British neighbour manages our property, along with other houses in the estate, with friendly staff responsive to any of our renters needs -- from booking massages, cooks, and cars to key exchanges, cleaning, repairs, and anything in between. We hope our guests feel the comfort of a well-cared-for home while enjoying the natural beauty surrounding it.
