Enjoy the peaceful, simple, good life at the beach in this house on the beautiful tropical island of Ko Samui, Thailand. This 538 square foot one-bedroom home has a living room, equipped KITCHEN (most "bungalows" have no kitchen) and bathroom and is just a 30 second walk to the serene, peaceful, warm ocean and sandy beach. All of this accommodation is surrounded (email hidden) garden with breezy Coconuts, Bamboo, Palms, and Banana trees nearby the turquoise ocean with views of fabulous sunsets and neighboring isles.

If you're considering other houses/.bungalows, be aware that most others do not have a kitchen or a partial sea-view, but this house has both!

If you're looking to get away from it all (yet still have high-speed Internet and short walking distance to the beach, restaurants and convenience stores), this is the perfect place for you.

  • The bungalow is situated in a nice quiet area, ideal for those who wish to get away from the cheesy tourist strips. It has all the necessary amenities including air conditioning! Steven arranged airport transfer. He was polite and very helpful with our enquiries. There are nice restaurants and bars within walking distance. The convenience store is handy and just a 60 second walk.

    Overall we enjoyed our stay and would recommend.

  • unsere Unterkunft war von der Lage her sehr schön, nur 50 Meter zum Meer und ruhige Nachbarschaft. In der Frühe brauchte man Ohrstöpsel, weil es ein paar kreischende Vögel gab und man die Autos von der Strasse hören konnte, war aber kein Problem für uns. In der näheren Nachbarschaft konnten wir preiswert Strandliegen mieten und Massagen bekommen, sehr angenehm. Das Haus war geräumig, aber sehr spartanisch eingerichtet, nicht gemütlich wenn man einen längeren Aufenthalt hat. Das Bett war sehr gut, Matratze, Kopfkissen usw.Auf der Veranda leider keine bequemen (website hidden) der Küche hätte ich gern einen Geschirrschrank gehabt.Steven hat uns aber einen Container für das Geschirr besorgt und ein Sofa im Raum zum Fernsehen. Das Bad war nicht sehr attraktiv, wir es gern ein bisschen sauberer gehabt,mit wenig Aufwand könnte Steven das verbessern. Um Wäschewechsel und frische Handtücher mussten wir uns selber kümmern, das sollte vielleicht in dem Preis auch enthalten sein.

  • It's good, clean house in the calm and beautiful place.
    There is all I need to relax and have a very good time on Samui.
    Steven, thank you!

  • Nice little house in a quiet neighbourhood (called Bang Por).
    We enjoyed our stay in Koh Samui.

    Steven is very nice and will help you if you need anything during your stay.

  • Steven is a very good host, easy to approach and gave us lots of information for Koh Samui. We enjoyed our stay very much in Steven's spacious guest house. The location was very quite, but not to far away from restaurants and bars. Steven's guest house is our first choise when we revisit Koh Samui for our next holiday there.

  • Steven's houses are a hidden gem. Right on a beautiful stretch of tranquil beach. Walking distance to local stores and great waterfront restaurants. The houses are clean, well kept and comfortable. You can easily rent a scooter for a very affordable price and visit the more hectic areas of the island, then return home to your tropical escape of peace and solitude!

    October 2013
  • Really good house with kitchen and all, we need! Clean place, nice beach!

    August 2013
  • Steven was great, and very helpful. Any questions or issues that we had he was willing to do his best to help us out. He respected our privacy as well, even as he was our neighbor, leaving us to ourselves unless there was something that we needed. It made for a safe and comfortable community, and if I ever go back to Thailand, I wouldn't hesitate to book a couple months with Steven again.

    July 2013
  • Very nice place, clean and not too noisy, far away from all the partying yet only 20 minute scooter ride. The location is surrounded by great cheap eateries, the beach is a minute walk and Steve is very helpful as well as Friendly.
    The internet works well so the place is ideal for creative work.

  • These Bungalows are well nice clean with nice interieur and it's a quiet place round about 20 minutes with the scooter to the nightlife. The beach is not overcrowded. Instead there are more private people who owned a house there or tourists that rent a private house like me. You see some families and quiet tourists on the beach. There is no commercial at the beach but in about 300 meters some nice restaurants. So this place is for people who search quiet places and privacy. Scooters are cheap and so everything is easy to reach on the island. In the evening after sightseeing and maybe highlife you can relax on the beach or on your private terasse. Everybody is nice around the house. So is Steven. He is present and help with everything. I liked it. For those who wants to cook there is a kitchen in the bungalow, grill, microwave too. Big refrigerator. Two air conditions, one in the bed room. The shower could have more power.

    Response from Steven:

    Alexander was a nice guest. He said he had a good time and liked staying at our house. With regards to the shower "power", Alexander is referring to the water pressure, not the heater (since that works just fine). The water system here is fed by gravity from a water storage tank (fed by fresh water), so the pressure is always stable and strong. The shower water flow formerly was a bit spread out due to a large shower head, so this was improved by changing to a more focused shower head. Since then we also have also had the filters cleaned out, so it flows much better now.
