There's 1 king size bed (new mattress pad on top), as well as a second single-sized bed which folds up into a sofa for daytime use. There is also enough room to easily sleep up a 4th person with the optional extra bed (air mattress). There is also a wardrobe, desk, and several chairs.

All of this accommodation is surrounded (email hidden) garden with breezy Coconuts, Palms, Banana and Papaya trees nearby the turquoise ocean with views of fabulous sunsets and neighboring isles.

There is a convenience store very close as well as several restaurants within walking distance, and one even delivers Western and Thai food to your door.

The house is located just 10 minutes from either the towns of Maenam and Nathon which have numerous shops, restaurants, night life, and a wonderful, friendly culture. There is public transportation available on the road just 1 minute walk from the house. Samui also has many other diverse areas of interest including a thriving art scene in Bophut and night spots in Chaweng, SCUBA, snorkeling, waterfalls, hiking trails, outdoor activities, tree covered mountains for hiking, golf, adventure entertainment, and many other activities. Your laundry can be cleaned and ironed for 40 baht (~ $1.30 USD) per Kg at the shop on the street less than 150 meters from the house, or pickup and drop-off laundry for 50 baht per Kg. Maid / cleaning service is available for $25 per time with advance notice. Electricity is billed as per actual usage at 7 baht per Kw/hr = ~ 24 cents per Kw / hr. Typically, this works out to about 50 cents up to $2 USD (two US dollars) per day depending on your usage of the air conditioner, hot shower, and electric appliances.

When you rent this house, you have the private use of the whole place; I stay a few doors away while you enjoy the privacy of your own holiday home. I will provide my own personal mobile number and email contact info as well as that of our friendly English-speaking neighbors/friends very close by who will be happy to assist you. Please book your stay right now.

  • Our 14-day stay in Steven's house was great in every way. The location of his bungalows is beautiful, the view was amazing -- sea views -- the sunsets are unforgettable. The bungalows are very spacious, fully furnished, everything is as descriped. The location is very quiet with good restaurants, shops for goods and also the main ring road nearby with cheap public taxis, all within walking distance. Steven is a very friendly, helpful host, without being ever intrusive. It is a beautiful site directly situated by the sea where you can enjoy the sunset. The only minor point was the sea at least in the months of April and May was a bit swallow, calm with low water level for swimming. But this has not tarnished the excellent impression for all else is good and the value for money is much better than average. We can only recommend this resort.

    Response from Steven:

    In addition to the normal daily tides all tropical areas also have longer term tides. This means that for several weeks during this particular season, around the time of the new moon, the water level is much lower than normal. However at other times of the year it is more than 1-2 meters higher. During the last few days of their stay, Hans and his wife did mention to me that they noticed the water level had come back up.

    While it is true there are deeper water areas just a short distance from here, most people seem to appreciate the fact that the water on our beach is very calm, serene, and peaceful.

  • A perfect location if you want to be away from the crowds. And yet, not far from the wilder side of Samui, if you wanted to venture there. The house has all the basics you need and it's so close to the beach. Along the beach you'll find many good restaurants and massage places.

  • What can I say. I stayed at Steven's place for three weeks, on my own, during the month of March, and had an absolutely perfect time. The house was exactly as described, no surprises, comfortable with everything you could need and in an ideal location a few steps from the sandy beach. I immediately felt at home and knew that Steven was not far away should the need arise (which fortunately it did not). The locals were really friendly, I ate out every day for both lunch and dinner and was never bored with the choice of restaurants or food and everyone made me feel very welcome. A special thought for the ladies who own My House as well as Som Restaurant on the beach, both serving amazing food at very cheap prices. I spent a lot of my time at the Health Oasis Resort practicing yoga and meditation, and they too made me feel very welcome despite being an 'outsider'. Living the mad life of a big city (Paris), taking time out in this relaxing environment with such beautiful, caring people certainly feeds the soul. If you want to do the touristy things this can be arranged quite easily, but if you want to take time out this is the right place to go. There is nothing negative I can say, it was just perfect. Steven : Thank You!

  • We stayed here for a week and can thoroughly recommend it. If you are looking for a pleasant relaxing villa within easy walking distance of the beach it is perfect. The main room is large and has two desk areas (if you need to work, as one of us did). We also enjoyed hanging out on the balcony, with its view of the palm trees and ocean. The kitchen is fairly basic but there are many cheap and good restaurants nearby, so if you are anything like us you will probably use it for fruit-cutting, breakfast, and cocktail-making and it is perfect for that.

    The beach is very quiet -- just the occasional stroller -- which we liked. There is quite a lot of seaweed growing on the reef but swimming close to the shore is fine.

    One night we decided not to go out but to stay in and check out the large collection of movies and TV shows Steven has laid on—that was fun too.

    Steven was a pleasant and helpful host. He lives a couple of doors away so was on hand to deal with any problems although we didn’t have any. The taxi service he arranges to and from the airport was efficient and we would recommend it.

    All in all, a wonderful place in which to unwind – we wish we were there right now in fact!

  • We had a wonderful, relaxing stay at Steven's clean, quiet and wonderfully located bungalow. Everything was exactly as advertised. Great restaurants, swimming and massages right along the beach - a perfect spot for a quiet holiday.

  • We had a wonderful time at Koh samui. Perfect place for a quiet and relaxing vacation.

  • We had a great experience with Steven - the booking and check in was easy, and he arranged transportation for us from the airport making the whole trip convenient and stress-free.

    The bugalow was exactly as pictured a few steps from the sand. The place is really great, stunning views, great local and western food places nearby.

    Fully equipped with everything you might need and of course,
    a very accommodating host. We will come again and will definitely book our stay with Steven.

  • Two weeks of perfection ! I stayed for two weeks with my children at one of Stephen's beach-side bungalows. We'd planned to stay one week , but ended up staying one more week, as it exceeded our expectations .
    The house is exactly as described, and there are indeed excellent (and cheap) restaurants nearby.
    My kids loved swimming all day and it was was easy enough to take a taxi or economical song-theow to grocery stores in Nathon or Chaweng.
    The tranquility was a delight, and much needed after previously staying in Bangkok.
