    Nothing was too much trouble for Rich and Coral. Rich met us from the ferry on our arrival in Koh Tao and took us up to the villa by taxi. It's well presented and organised. It's simple to run and has been recently renovated. Rich gave us an informative tour of the property and left us with a mobile phone for local use. If we had any queries or required assistance Rich and Coral were quick to respond - usually within an hour. Koh Tao is a small island and is relatively unspoilt. It is accessed by ferry only. The only cars on the island are taxis. It's easy to rent mopeds on a daily basis. The locals are friendly and keen to be helpful. We also stayed on Koh Samui and Phuket on this trip. Koh Tao was by far our favourite location. The villa is in a rural hill top location with stunning views. We enjoyed watching the tree shrews leaping around in the trees that surround the house and visits from the geckos who are quite vocal and keep the bugs at bay at night. We also saw several harmless golden tree snakes at a distance, but they were very quick to disappear as soon as they were aware of us. Unfortunately, we had very mixed weather which curtailed some of our plans for diving and snorkelling, but we had a very relaxing 10 days in the villa and we enjoyed the local restaurants. Rich and Coral left us with a list of restaurants on file and also local take-away services. Also, details and prices for a local taxi service. Everything is relatively inexpensive in Koh Tao by European standards. This is by far the best villa we have rented anywhere abroad. Rich and Coral have given considerable thought to the smooth running of the villa. The general maintenance and cleaning service was excellent and unobtrusive. we would have no hesitation in recommending the Top of the Rock Villa and may well return ourselves in the future.

  • Amazing villa with breath taking view
    5 of 5

    Spent 2 weeks at this beautiful villa with our grown up children, celebrating Christmas and new year. Garry & Lynne the owners went out of there way to make our stay very memorable. From arranging scooter hire (even delivering and returning the scooters for us) to which laundry service to use, where to go for specific groceries etc. we were also provided with a simple mobile phone to call a taxi as well as ordering take away delivery. The house was regularly cleaned, and bed linen and towels changed. The kitchen equipment is basic but as eating out is very reasonable it's not worth bothering with trying to prepare much besides eggs, porridge & toast for breakfasts! We took advantage of the yoga mats provided with our daughter leading us in sessions every morning. We also played table tennis and on two evenings chose to watch a movie with great take away pizza fro Farango! We all (6 of us) thouroughly enjoyed the tranquility of the villa, as compared to the hustle and bustle of Sairee Beach just 15-20 minutes walk away. The house is easily accessible via a concrete road which is rather steep, but that's the charm of Koh Tao! I would thoroughly recomend Nang Yuan view villa. Thank you Garry & Lynne for all your assistance during our stay.
