  • The location was perfect. The beach is very quiet and it is fabulous to walk just a few minutes down the beach to great restaurants. The villa is just as it looks in the pictures. We enjoyed sitting outside with views of the water.

  • We had a very nice time at Steven's beach home. It's located in a quiet and secure area of Ko Samui, which is exactly what we were looking for after the time spent in Bangkok. The sea is literary couple of steps away from the beach home, which is very handy.
    Steven was a helpful and understanding host, who gave us useful tips how to get around. Thank you, we enjoyed our stay very much.

  • Steven is an extremely good host. Attentive and helpful, Steven tries his utmost to ensure that his guests are comfortable and happy. We were happy with how approachable Steven is and would highly recommend him and one of his properties to anyone. The location of the house is perfect. We have been home a mere few hours, yet we miss the house and the beach already. Thank you Steven, we had an amazing time. - Tom and Jess.

  • Very Good Location! Less than One Minute to the Beach, and everything is nearby (Restaurants, Seven Eleven etc.). Steven is a very Good Host, very helpful with everything! Only negative Thing i can say is the furniture is a Little Bit Old.

    Response from Steven:

    The furniture is exactly as pictured and described in the listing / photos, including a western style mattress with mattress pad, new swivel desk chair, 2 new metal framed wicker chairs, and a brand new padded seat (not yet shown). The only furniture more than 3 years old are 3 wood chairs (which, in this house, come with cushions/pads). If you're looking for a fancier furniture, you may want to consider my other higher-end listings such as https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/15031 and/or https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/411603

  • Stevens place was great, we found our stay there to be relaxing and very enjoyable. Steven is a welcoming and helpful host with excellent communication. When we arrived we were given information as to where to rent cars/motorcycles, get laundry done etc along with maps, restaurant guides and other things to do on the island.

    The location was excellent as the beach was beautiful and felt deserted as if we had it all to ourselves. If you rent a scooter the larger shops are not too far away, but the small village has almost everything you may need.

    The accommodation was clean and pleasant, the kitchen whilst only having a single burner stovetop was more than adequate to cook meals with as there was also a rice cooker and convection oven.

    Highly recommended, great value for such a beautiful location.

  • Steven's place was fantastic. We were looking to get away from the backpacker partying hordes as we were on our honeymoon. There a number of great restaurants within walking distance and Steven has great contacts for cheap car or motorbike rental (cheap taxi, too which is important on Samui). The beach was practically private and absolutely beautiful. The water is shallow when the tide is out, but really a beautiful place. The bungalow itself was exactly as advertised and just what we needed. The AC in the bedroom was perfect for getting a bit of respite from the heat. Would stay again for sure!

  • We had 12 wonderful days in Stevens little paradise. First time on samui, but we felt very lucky to stay exactly here, as we found it to be everything we were looking for. Fantastic genuine thai food, a lovely and far from crowded beach and a beautiful view from the bungalow. To me, the food was high priority. And finding several cosy fish restaurants when walking along the beach was perfect.

    Steven was a great host. Attentive and very friendly. I can definitely recommend this place to anyone who's looking for a place where you can have the beach pretty much all by yourself, and whenever you feel like it, walk to one of the many great eateries along the road, or rent a motorbike and explore the long trail of fantastic street food vendors, the next better than the other. The night food market in Nathon has plenty of excellent food to eat into. Noodle soups, thai bbq, freshly made spring rolls, etc etc. In one word, perfect :-)

    The bungalow itself is nice and clean, and did fully meet our expectations. Big fridge and a functional kitchen. A powerful gas stove is at hand, perfect for anyone who wants to practice the wok skills.

  • Charming and usable bungalow was as described, with separate bedroom, and kitchen. Just steps from the beach, and walkable to restaurants, laundry, small shops, etc. Nearby (walkable) Health Oasis had available Yoga each morning.

    I was very happy with the location in Bang Por, and nearby services. Proved an excellent home base for exploring. Not a party scene at all. More developed adjacent towns of Maenom and Bophut were about 15 and 30 minutes away by scooter. Also Nathon (in the opposite direction) for more shopping, some restaurants, and services.

    Steven was gracious and helpful during my visit, providing information and resources as I needed, or referring me to those who could.

    Long-term neighbors and other short-term guest were friendly and respectful. Local residents made you feel like you were actually in Thailand, not just resort/bar/tourist-land.

  • The location was perfect, steps away from an idyllic tropical island beach.The perfect place to chill out. The sunsets were out of this world!!! Steven was the perfect host, helpful when needed but also quietly discrete as he lived in the next house.His written information pack was excellent ,a model of good practice. The house was spacious and clean, great selection of DVDs and books. Great big comfy bed. Furnishings were basic but adequate, Hot water shower worked perfectly.We would definitely return here and would recommend it to our friends.

  • We are an older couple who stayed at Stephens bungalow Ban Por for 6wks we enjoyed our stay there and the view from the verandah was lovely with easy access to the beach and we could swim any time we chose and having breakfast watching the boats sail past is such a lovely way to start the day. The bungalow is a very good size and the kitchen was more than adequate for our stay and Stephen even supplied us with a halogen oven, but being English we would have liked a kettle as we are not keen to boil water for tea in pans we cook our food in The bedroom had a good size wardrobe and the bed line was of good quality there was plenty of coat hangers for our clothes which is unusual for holiday accommodation the only thing lacking was a bedside lamp.Living area had a TV and DVD and Stephen had left us some DVDs to watch , for us the only problem we found was the seating arrangement being older we would have liked some comfortable chairs or even a sofa there is only one large chair and although this looked in good order the seating area had started to sag quite badly the other chair was low and wooden with a cushion on the seat this is ok for most people but when you get older getting down is ok getting up is not so easy as knees and hips have a habit of not being so flexible but we had a nice seating area on the verandah which we spent many a happy hour but after dark we preferred to sit inside and either play cards or watch a film so for us a comfortable chair is important The bungalow is in a quite area which we enjoyed and most of the other guest hired either a motor bike or like us a car but you can get around using the buses and taxis which we did often and only hired the car occasionally there are some lovely places to eat within walking distance and you can now get a really good massage in the grounds which we loved and the beach is wonderful and clean. Steven is a very pleasant young man who will try to sort your problems out quickly and was always polite and pleasant to communicate with. If you are looking for a bungalow with quality furnishings this place is not for you as the bungalows furnishings are quite basic but if you enjoy peace and quite with spectacular views across the sea and a beautiful beach to wander along then you will love this place as we did.
