Set in a lush garden, 25 meters from the beach, in a quiet area, the house is away from the noisy tourist stops, and ideal to explore the south of Samui. It has two bedrooms with AC, a dining/sitting area under a shaded terrace, and a small kitchen.

Set in a lush garden, 25 meters from the beach, in a quiet area, the house is away from the noisy tourist stops, and ideal to explore the south of Samui. It has two bedrooms with AC, a dining/sitting area under a shaded terrace, and a small kitchen.

The Space

The house is 25 meters from the beach of Lipa Noi, in a lush garden that includes another bungalow, nested in a tiny residential compound. The whole place is a sort of hide away, super green, super quiet, away from the roads and the noisy tourists spots.

The house is a few minutes driving from Nathon, Ko Samui's administrative capital - which offers plenty of great restaurant and a take at local Thai life. There are a few restaurants and shops at walking distance, but I really recommend to plan a car or a bike to go around Samui. That can be sorted out on demand, or found easily in nearby Nathon.

The beach is a long stretch of smooth sand along the bay of Lipa Noi. It has very little development, so it is super quiet and gorgeous at sunset. Right in front of the house the water is shallow and super safe. A few hundred meters away along the beach it becomes deeper and it is perfect for swimming.

Here is a bit more information about the house itself:

The bungalow is fully independent. It offers 2 nicely decorated bedrooms with air conditioning, each with a king size bed, and a nice terrace with a dining table. A good wifi connection is available. There is a small kitchen on a covered terrace on the back of the bungalow, equipped with a refrigerator, gas burners and pots and pans. It's very simple, but you can arrange your own cooking. The bathroom has a shower with hot water.

The bungalow was recently refurbished, it is the place where family and friends stay when they visit. You should not expect real luxury or hotel services, but all the comfort is there.

Is it too small for you?

Under the reference “cosy house for 4-5 on LipaNoi beach”, you will find a slightly larger bungalow - it is a bit more spacious, with a separate living room and a fully equipped kitchen.

Under the reference “Beach paradise for families & friends”, you will be able to book the combination of both bungalows - then it's a perfect place for up to 8 people.

And if you are a really big party, you can also check the list "Sea view house and pool" in Lipa Noi. David's place is across the alley, in the same compound, so it's very easy to have large groups staying "together" by renting our 2 properties in parallel.

Guest Access

Independent house, 2 air-conditioned bedrooms, a sitting/dining area on a shaded terrace, a small kitchen for basic cooking

Interaction with Guests

We live 20km away, in another village - but are always ready to help on the booking of the car or motorbikes, or suggestions for fishing, snorkeling or dining places!

The Neighborhood

Lipa Noi is a quiet neighborhood, away from the overcrowded tourists spots, The beach offers beautiful sunset, the fresh market closely fantastic food - it's a great place for a quiet holiday.

Getting around

It's possible to stay without any means of transportation - there are a few restaurants and shops at walking distance, and a few public buses - but it's recommended to plan for rented car or motorcycles if you want to travel around Samui.

  • We had a very nice few days in the two bedroom house.

    This house and the other house are part of a property of in total about 10 to 15 houses.
    This house shares the garden with the second house and then the garden is a little bit small to our opinion.

    The kitchen is at the back of the house, there's is no kitchen and refrigerator inside so every time you had to go around the house. This we didn't like but allover we had a few nice days in this part of Lipa Noi.

  • We enjoyed everything: the nice little house, garden and the beach. Took long walks and enjoyed quiet evenings at the back porch. Wi-Fi was the best we experienced in Thailand and one of the bedrooms contained a nice library of good books in English and French. Benoit and Fan have been generous and considerate hosts and it was easy to contact them via mobile or Internet. We have rented their car for a couple of days and traveled around. The next door neighbours gave us a lift to Nathon and helped with shopping. It was a very relaxed and pleasant vacation. Many, many thanks dear Benoit Khun Fon. We hope to be back before too long.

  • We had a really nice stay in Samui. The highlight to Benoits place is actually his fantastic neighbours. They are very friendly and offered their help and welcomed us immediately. The bungelo is very far from a lot of the main beaches. You really need your own scooter or car to enjoy the island. It really reminded me of cabin life. Very quiet at night, but extremely relaxing. The amenities of the bungelo are also comparable to that of a cabin. Bring your own supplies (Toilet paper, soap, detergent etc) there were towels and linens for you. Very comfy beds, AC... Pictures are extremely accurate

  • Bonne location,maison très agréable et bien décorée,nous nous y sommes senties très bien.sejour reposant,par contre scooter vivement recommandé car la maison est assez isolée! Nous y sommes restées 8 jours avec ma fille ,et tout s est bien passe! Benoit était la a notre arrivée,j ai trouve l accueil un peu expéditif car Benoit devait partir prendre un avion mais par la suite tout s est bien (website hidden) s est occupe de nous trouver un scooter avec des loueurs très honnêtes et des scooters tout neufs,la résidence est calme et securisante. Joli jardin,joli plage,cuisine sommaire mais suffisante,plusieurs petits restos a côté qui font même de l emporter! Bref bon sejour!

  • Benoit's house is in a quiet residential neighbourhood, just steps from a natural, peaceful beach. There were few people EVER on the beach...we felt we had a private beach. There was some glass often washed up on the beach, so I just watched where I walked and helped by picking up what I saw.
    There is a lovely little restaurant 5 minutes away on the beach, and we spent many hours there. Another good local one by the 7/11.
    We had some disappointment with the house because it didn't have enough comfortable seating for 3 of us. It only has 2 bedrooms and a bathroom inside. Benoit responded when I messaged him about this and supplied a second chair. The gas was empty, and there was only one pan to cook with, but we were not too bothered as food in restaurants is so readily available. Could be extra pots were left in the other house from prior rental.
    I would go back again to Benoit's house, but would request the bigger one with an indoor lounge and a larger patio with comfy furniture. A great location for a quiet holiday away from the crowds.

  • Benoit's place worked out quite well during my brother and I's stay in Ko Samui. Benoit and his wife, Fon, were extremely hospitable and communicative. Any issue that popped up was handled immediately.

    The beds were very comfortable and even the smaller of the two bungalows had plenty of space. There are a couple domesticated dogs on the property, but they very friendly. As a dog-owner myself, I found this to be a charming touch.

    It should be noted that the bungalows are quite far from the more "popular" beaches, like Chaweng and Lamai, so it's important that you rent a car or bikes during your stay. Cabs can get a bit expensive and the drivers may have a tough time finding the place. If you get a car, I highly recommend Hire Samui in Na Thon, which is close by. Good rates, friendly, helpful service.

  • I can't fault Benoit's place at all. It was clean, spacious, comfortable, secluded and quiet. I stayed for over a week with my wife and two kids (1 and 4), and had a great time. The house has everything you need, and the garden is great for the kids to run around in. The beach is indeed less than a minute away, and although it often had debris washed up from the shore on it, the ocean is clean and fine for kids. Benoit was a great host, he met us at the airport and settled us in beautifully (even left a couple of beers in the fridge which saved me going out again to get some!) The main resorts (Rajapruek / Nikki beach) are only a 15 minute stroll down the beach and the there is a 7/11 a 7 minute walk from Benoit's place. As I said, I can't fault the stay we had there, (even the neighbours were generous and friendly). Bring a good torch though, as if you are walking to restaurants / shops at night it can get pretty dark.

  • Still under the lasting impression of our first 4-week Thailand trip as a family of 4. We saw a lot of different places, people, accommodations etc. It was a view-changing trip, thanks to the People in Thailand and the busy and at the same time relaxed way of life over there. Housing is quite simple and the Garden Bungalow of Benoit fitted perfectly in our stay: private, in a remote little, rather quite area of Samui. We enjoyed Benoits' (even if done only via Email) and his friends care before and during our stay. We enjoyed the private atmosphere in the house, the books to read in French, Englisch and even some German ;-) We highly recommend for those who look for some quietness and long walks along the beach.

About
Hi! I am a consultant in marketing, a father of 4, and a Samui lover. I fell in love with Ko Samui 8 years ago, and bought a lovely set of 2 bungalows 25meters from the beach, in a lush garden, ideally located in a tiny residential development. I travel a lot, so I rent them out – I love the feeling that other can enjoy a place that really makes me happy. Both bungalows are independent and can be occupied with privacy – so you can rent them separately or together.
