Sibaja Palms has Dutch owners that have been living on Samui for several years now.
The apartment was beautiful. I was wanting a place with a quiet beach, away from the horde of tourists, and this was it. There were a couple places to eat within walking distance since I didn't have a scooter. Brenda was very accommodating to make sure needs were met. I will definitely stay there again on my next trip to Ko Samui.
This is my first AirBnB experience and if any of my following trips turn out this well I will never book a hotel again. Brenda was amazing - the property is poorly photographed, as it is much more amazing than the images. The attention to detail was exceptional. What a wonderful experience.
Wilfred and his wife were wonderful hosts. Prior to our arrival he was very helpful answering questions and giving suggestions for our visit. When we arrived, he picked us up and took us back where we met his wife an touted the villa. It was spacious and clean.
We are adventurous travelers so we wanted to hire a car and they arranged for one and we didn't have to go anywhere to pick it up or drop it off. Very convenient.
Only negatives was the beach wasn't much of a beach and there was debris and broken glass (so be careful). We drove around the island and from what we could see most of the "beaches" on the west coast were similar. However, if you walk south on the beach for a while you will come upon an isolated beach that is absolutely picturesque!! Gorgeous!!
All in all, it was a nice experience.
