About this listing
Beautiful oceanfront villa, with large private swimming pool, on over one acre of land. Ocean in the front, creek on the side, and mountains behind.
This is a lovely 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath home, roomy and comfortable, directly on the ocean. There is a large private swimming pool and gazebo, so you can stay cool while enjoying a beverage and serene views across the ocean to Trat and Cambodia. The house has a shady balcony with ocean breeze.
The spacious kitchen is fully equipped with pots, pans, dishes and all necessary cooking utensils. All linens are provided.
There is air conditioning throughout.
Housekeeping 1 time mid-week-stay. Additional housekeeping if desired for an extra fee. We have our own private beach 50 meters away. There are several excellent restaurants within 3 kilometers, one within easy walking distance (on the shore if low tide), and several restaurants will deliver.
We have cars and scooters for rent, or we can help with transportation or call for a taxi.
We are located on the East Coast of Koh Chang, 6 kilometers South of the Aor Thammachat Ferry, and White Sands Beach is 12 kiometers away.
This is a small private community of 18 homes, in a quiet residential area. There is a lot of room for kids to roam without worrying about traffic, as we are at the end of a private road.

The villa was a gorgeous property in a lovely, quiet and well maintained neighborhood. Sunrises and sunsets were beautiful and tranquil. The views of the mountains behind the house were just breathtaking on clear days. The house itself is well furnished with beautiful wood cabinetry and comfortable beds and chairs. I felt like I was home from the moment I took off my shoes. The pool was just as described and cleaned daily (which was much appreciated!).
The host, Bruce, and the community manager, K. Jum, were so kind and welcoming. They were both incredibly responsive to issues and requests. At one point the wifi was not working (due to weather) and Bruce was at the house within an hour to help.
My one critique was that the private beach was more where rocky land met sea than sandy beach. It was fine to lounge about and swim in the water, but it's very different than the beaches on the western part of the island (it's not powdery, sandy like white sand beach, for example). It was still beautiful, but I was expecting something else from the photos. Not a terribly big deal. I just wore water shoes the whole time and it was fine.
The home is definitely off the beaten path so I would strongly urge anyone considering staying to be prepared to rent a motorbike or car (which Bruce can help with at fair rates). Otherwise, taxis will get expensive quickly.
Overall, I was impressed and wanted to stay longer.
We live and work in Bangkok and wanted to have a break from it. We stayed here for 8 nights doing some work, exercising outside, playing badminton and enjoying the pool and the view. The place is great for all of these. It is quiet, peaceful and private.
The house is spacious, well designed and decorated, it feels homey and warm despite its size. A lot of wood inside, which is always nice. The host is hospitable, responsive and helpful. We would definitely come back.
Our family stayed at Gardenia villa for a month in January' 15 and loved our holiday here! The villa is amazing - the best one in the whole community, especially for a big family :) Private and spacious pool in front of the porch and a lovely gazebo by the pool. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything possibly needed; a washing machine and a dryer are for your convenience in the garage. The house is quite spacious, well furnished and beautiful. Two bedrooms downstairs and one upstairs. The one upstairs is not suitable for small kids though - as the stairs is really steep and is not isolated from the bedroom. The beach is 30-40 m away, covered with sand but the shore of the sea has pebbles and its quite shallow, but very-very quiet - the waves are rare here - makes a pleasant swim.
There is a great, tasty and really cheap restaurant that delivers to villas (Koh Chang Flower) and another one tasty but a bit more expensive. One other restaurant is in the walking distance and a couple provide free pick-up service. There is a wonderful restaurant a bit further to the ferry - Amber sands - perfect place for a romantic or family dinner out.
A truck with food (meats, eggs, very good variety of vegetable and fruits) comes once in two days and the prices are very reasonable as well. The owner also provides a service of driving to the west side and all supermarkets in case you don't rent a car (which are also available here)
The owner and the staff are amazing - very welcoming, do everything and go the extra mile to make your stay comfortable! Overall we loved the place and will be happy to return someday!
