Interaction with Guests
I can interact a lot or I can be discrete, it's up to the guest. But please read the comments to find out more.
The place is perfectly nice, small and quiet, there is miles of beautiful and relaxing beaches and lots of good and very affordable restaurants. Located in Bang Po village , the villa has a variety of tropical trees and is surrounded by jungle.
We recommend our BnB to those who like to relax, quiet beaches and contacts with local people. We are 10 miles away from the center of the island that it is much more hectic.
The quickest way to get to the beach is via a restaurant by the beachfront at 250m, the public access is 400m.
There is a Seven-Eleven (a small store open 24/7) and a pharmacy, lots of restaurants and small shops within 500m.
The very affordable Songthaew are available in no time on the ring road at 200m, a fare cost between 40 thai baht and 100 THB per person depending on the distance.
You can directly rent a car or a motorcycle with insurance or a jet ski, to our landlord (and friend) at fair prices.

Un voyage inoubliable grâce à Laurent un hôte toujours présent et simple, il donne de bons conseils et nous aide dans nos démarches (location scooter, visites...)
l'appartement était génial à 2min d'une plage de rêve où l'on peux y trouver de bons restaurants et des coins de massages très agréables avec vue mer.
Choisir Laurent c'est le risque de ne plus vouloir quitter son île ;)
Encore merci de nous avoir accueillis et rendez vous très bientôt pour un prochain barbecue.
The Butterfly Villa was truly a wonderful place for the three of us to stay for 6 nights. We rented the entire 2nd floor. It was spacious and comfortable with 2 bedrooms, lounge/kitchen and a bathroom. The beds are restful and soft and the each room is air conditioned and has a ceiling fan. There is an outdoor patio area with 2 tables that we enjoyed our breakfast at. The ground floor has a charming gazebo complete with a fan. The villa had all the modern conveniences including access to a clothes washer and espresso machine for morning coffees. Laurent arranged a rental car for us which is recommended for your stay on Koh Samui. Motorbikes were also available. The location at Bang Por is quiet but not far from great restaurants, convenience stores and the beach. There are authentic Thai seafood restaurants right on the beach and a really good Italian pizza place right around the corner. We also cooked breakfast a couple of mornings in the villa - very convenient. When you are on Koh Samui don't forget to go to the beautiful Laem Sor Beach Disc Golf Course on the south side of the Island. 18 holes of fun with a super funky clubhouse.
Le logement que nous a proposé Laurent correspondait totalement à la description des lieux. Je dirai qu'il est idéalement situé sur l'île car dans une partie moins fréquentée tout en étant proche de tout et nous y avons trouvé tout ce dont nous pouvions avoir besoin soit une superficie agréable avec toutes commodités, l'accès immédiat à la plage et aux commerces et restaurants...mais surtout ce que je soulignerai lors de ce séjour c'est la grande disponibilité de Laurent pour répondre à nos questions et à nos attentes lors de notre séjour tout en sachant préserver notre tranquillité. Merci donc Laurent pour tout cela, toutes tes attentions mais aussi pour ces bons moments passés avec toi, pour ces échanges...Avec très grand plaisir, nous recommandons ta location.
We stayed in Laurent’s house with our 4yrs daughter during five days at the beginning of August 2014. Laurent is a very nice host: he responded immediately to all our inquires and e-mails, provided us breakfast every morning and even brought some exotic fruits to try. The accommodation is on the 1-st floor of the house (Laurent lives at the ground floor), it has two spacious bedrooms, big bathroom, large living room and two small terraces – exactly as it is shown on the Airbnb site. We have a nice view on banana plantations from the living room. There is also a small swimming pool and a couple of lovely discrete cats – a joy for kids. The house itself is in the street where live several local thau families – all nice and friendly. The beach is five minutes walk from the house (though be careful crossing very busy main road). The beach is very quite, almost empty – all for yourself (most probably because at this part of Ko Samui there are not many hotels). It is also easy to go to more crowed parts of the island – just stop any taxi (especially “songthaews” – fun and cheap). We found particularly nice a nearest Mae Nam beach at the level of Palm Point Village.
Overall – we were very happy to stay at Laurent’s place and we can definitively recommend it, especially to those travelers who are looking for the quite and relaxing holidays at beautiful place.
We had a wonderful time! The place was comfortable (we loved the porch) and the neighborhood is low-key. The nearby restaurants were very pleasant and not too touristy. From helping us pick up a scooter to leaving us croissants in the morning, or just giving us some knowledge of the local area, Laurent was a great host. Overall, I'd definitely recommend staying here!

About the Host, Laurent
I am Laurent, a Graphic/Web designer from the french part of Switzerland. I live in Koh Samui since 2009. I have three cats. They are quite calm and lazy ;-) I am a respectful, quiet and fair person. I like to prepare good meals and BBQ, to play pingpong and to relax at the beach.
