Magnifique maison sûrement une des plus belles de Koh Tao et surtout des mieux placés (1 min du centre en scooter) ce qui est rare sur cette îles surtout avec une vue pareil . Attention aux personne agées car bien que regroupant énormément de qualités la maison se trouve en haut d'une montée assez pentu, pour ma part j'ai louer un scooter chez RPM juste en bas de la maison (loueur très honnête) et le scoot monte sans problème mais il faut savoir le manier sinon il faut prendre un taxi (un simple aller en taxi va vous coûter le prix de la location d'un scooter a la journé) car à pied c'est vite épuisant et je suis très sportif :) .3 chambre dont 1 passante ce qui limite l'intimité mais bon a vous de voir si cela vous pose problème cependant les trois sont très belle avec 2 au 1er étages (dont la passante) qui donne sur le balcon à la vue imprenable sur la baie et 1 au rdc avec vue sur les arbre. Si vous avais quelconque problème Linda sait se montrer réactif ce qui est plaisant :) en bref très belle expérience ;)
Our stay in Koh Tao and at the Frangipani Villa was absolutely amazing! Linda was so helpful leading up to our stay, and Ellu, the site manager, was so fantastic and attentive. The house itself is wonderful, and the view couldn't be any more picturesque. Word to the wise, it is a legitimate hike up to the house, but the accommodations and the view more than make up for it. We were also very surprised how lively the island is. Plenty of great restaurants, and there's fun nightlife for those who like to get a little crazy! Knowing how to ride a motorbike does make it easier to get around the island, since not all pathways are the most pedestrian friendly and taxis can become quite expensive. I cannot stress enough though how wonderfully relaxing our time on the island was.
Our Host Linda was truly helpful and provided plenty information about the property and the island. Although it was a last minute booking, we enjoyed being in this Villa with stunning view.
First: The contact with Linda & Thomas was very nice and all The questions replied very fast. Thumbs up !
Me and my Friend had an awesome stay in this House ! I can't describe this dreamly view ! :-)
The Staff and Miss Aon were very friendly and helpful. Arrival and departure worked good, so what can i say... If you Need to relax, do it on this terrace !
Wow, there is a lot to say about that villa, some good, some not so good. The house is nicely decorated, very comfortable and, the view is stunning! The hostess was good too. She did not expect all of us to arrive though and we were short towels during our stay.
One thing that is not very clear in the ad for the house is that the access is very difficult. The outside steps are of regular height, making it very difficult for older people. While it is true that you can rent a morning bike and ride all the way up to the bottom of the stairs leading to the house, you have to be an experienced rider in order to achieve that. It's very very steep! The very small area where we could park the motorbikes was uneven loose dirt, which caused us to actually drop a motorbike and having to pay for the damaged done.
When we arrived at villa we were also informed via email that we needed to pay extra for the electricity and water that would consume during our stay there. I think this should be added to the air B&B website. I thought this extra payment would be taken from our credit card deposit but it wasn't. The hostess never mentioned this so we ended up not being for the extra. I'm not sure she knew about it.
I also have to mention that the ceiling fan in the upper bedroom did not work. Downstairs the bedroom fan and air conditioning system worked but we could not shut the door, we had to leave it open at least 2 inches's because it was get ting stuck at the top. It was just as well because the doorknob stayed in our hand from the inside of the room anyway. Upstairs the living room/bedroom air conditioning system did not work.
There were no mosquito screens on the windows or on the patio doors so we had to leave them shut most of the time.
One last thing to mention is that to access the bedroom upstairs you need to go through the living room which is our third bedroom. So one person did not have any privacy in her room.
No doubt this is a good place, but it does have a few drawbacks and we need to be informed before we go there!
