Interaction with Guests
As much as I would like to meet you all I am not always on the island due to work obligations. However you will be personally met by my Property Manager Victor on your arrival and he will show you the unit and answer any questions that you have. You can also contact him during your stay if you need help with anything. You will have use of a free cell phone on the island and it will have Victors number programmed into it.
My neighborhood is the best because it is just off the beaten path yet within a 10 minute walk of the trendy 'Fisherman's Village' and the beach. The neighborhood has not been overdeveloped and there is still jungle all around. The local shop sells drinks and local food. Sundays Resort serves a simple breakfast. Both are 2 minutes walking distance away.
There are several means of transportation during your stay in Koh Samui. There is a service called 'Tuk Tuk' It is basically a fleet of pickup trucks or motorized rickshaws that drive randomly around the islands 'ring road' and the tourist hot spots and you just flag them down and jump in. It is cheap on the short run, however, not too reliable and only main road pick-ups and drop-offs.
Conversely you can take one of the many taxi's, but they are expensive and be careful not to get ripped off.
I strongly advise you against renting scooters on the island. I know they are cheap and fun, but hospitals are not. However, if you are a skilled driver, my Property Manager can assist you in renting out scooters for your journey (value cost: $8 - $15/day)
However, if you are more of a car person, there is a reserved private parking space for you at the apartment and we also help you in renting out a car for you if interested (value cost: $30 - $45/ day). A heads-up in advance will be highly appreciated in order to make necessary arrangements.
Other Things to Note
If you do take a taxi tell them to drive you up to 'Sunday's Sanctuary Resort & Spa'. They will know where that is. The property is a two minute walk from there, or you can tell them which final turn to make.
Your here to enjoy and have fun on vacation, right? Enjoy the place, be respectful of your neighbours and please read the pool rules. There is a copy of the pool rules in the unit. Please no smoking or pets in the unit. There is management available on call if you need help.
Well what a fantastic place to stay, probably the nicest place we've had the pleasure of staying whilst in Thailand. Like a home away from home. As with other reviews renting a vehicle is wise as the villa is in the quieter area of the island. But taxis and tuk tuks are frequent on the main road. Already planning our next visit and will hopefully be staying here again if it's available.
We were met off the ferry by jussi's friend who was polite and freindly. We were driven to the villa in a free mini bus about 35 mins away. We were given a tour of the beautiful villa which was just perfect, clean bright with all facilities necessary for a comfortable stay. Really recommend this to anyone especially couples or a family. 11 out of 10!
Our host was very kind and very obliging!
From our arrival to our departure everything was very organized. The house is as beautiful as descripted in the pictures. You don't even have to leave the house to get a vacaytion feeling, the house is really native and comfy. I have been to thailand several times, I've been to a lot of places, and this house is very special. It is indeed very recommendable! Many thanks to our host for taking such good care of us!
Everything was just as advertised. We didn't meet Jussi who was on a trip himself, but his friend Victor, who had even provided us with some initial water, filled up the great sophisticated coffee machine with all sorts of coffee to choose from. Not sure if this is their standard service , but really made our day. Thanks for a wonderful stay!!!
the apartment was nice and we had a good stay there. We appreciated all the small details provided in the flat (sun block, cream, shampoo, etc...) and Victor helped us to rent a car.
We had some problems of communication sometimes, but overall it was fine. The apartment is just a bit far from the beach (10-12 min walking on the main road) and a bit difficult to find, but if you have a car, it's easy to go around.
Hi Pitou thank you for your review. We appreciate your feedback. Unfortunately Victor had some transport issues before your arrival and we are really sorry this had a knock on effect to your pick up.
We take on your board comment about seating.
Unfortunately we cannot change the walls to reduce sound. Some of our neighbours are bothered more than others. Guests change.
We are working on the parking spaces to make it clearer but we will also speak to our neighbours.
Overall we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us.
Nous avons séjourné 10 jours à 4 personnes dans ce super-appartement très bien équipé (sèche-cheveux, shampoing, après shampoing, palm masque et Tuba, machine à café....). Très agréable endroit localisé près du fisherman's village où se situe plein de restaurants et boutiques . Le manager Victor est aux petits soins et disponible pour toutes demandes de renseignements ou autres. Nous avons pu également rencontrer le propriétaire qui nous a recommandé une de ses connaissances pour louer les scooters (le moins chère du marché et qui propose de très bons scooters) 150 baths contre 200 250 bath en général la journée proche de l'appartement. je recommande vivement cet endroit pour passer d'agréables vacances en Thaïlande
we really like the house. and the housekeeper is really kind gave us so many useful infomations. 房子结构很好 位置也不错，很干净 房东人超好 很热情！！！
