A Brit living in Asia for almost 20 years. I speak English, Chinese and French, if that helps! I live in Taiwan (GMT +7 hrs), please remember that if you are calling me.
Fantastic! My friends and I were all new to the concept of renting property internationally so we were all a little skeptical and apprehensive regarding the whole process. Of all the properties we looked at for our holiday in Thailand one of the major deciding factors involved in choosing Dom's place were his prompt responses to all of our questions. He seemed to understand that we were wary of scams coming from the other side of the world and used to the relative security of staying in chain hotels. I can tell you...not only was Dom's place not a scam, but it has convinced me to never pay for a boring hotel room on my vacation again. Dom was more than happy to set our minds at ease and guide us through the whole process.
The villa exceeded my expectations in almost every way and the pictures don't do it justice. The property is located away from the hectic atmosphere of the major beaches and resorts, tucked away in what feels like a very exclusive area, perfect for a peaceful retreat after a day(or night) of exploring on gorgeous Koh Samui. The villa is large, clean, and beautifully appointed with tasteful artwork and furniture. The view from the upper terrace is certainly the best in the whole complex, and the semi-private beach and infinity pool down near the Melati resort nearby is spectacular.
The property would have been an excellent value, and already much better than staying in a hotel room, on these merits alone, however the thing that put my experience there over the top was the personal service not seen at any hotel in this price range. Dom's housekeeper Nuay was courteous, pleasant, and always accomodating to our needs during our stay. She was there to greet us upon arrival with the full tour and to address any questions we had. She was available anytime to help us get the most out of our vacation. When we inquired about rental vehicles they were driving up to the front of the house 10 minutes later. When we requested laundry service someone was at the door in 5 minutes. I can't say enough about how pampered we felt there, and in some unexpected ways.
I would definetly recommend a stay at Dom's villa to anyone looking for a great value and unforgetable experience. Amazing..Thank You Dom
Great villa and location. We were only 5 to 10 minutes away from all the action. We had 8 people stay in the Villa for 4 nights and 5 days and everyone one of us loved the villa, the attached pool and the beach that was within walking distance. We also spent a lot of time in the main strip in town that is a 10 minute ride. I would highly recommend this place to all others and you will not find a better place for fantastic villa with a view of mountains and water.
