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.
It's been a great experience and a lot of fun staying in this apartment. Great location, SUP ,Kayak and snorkeling gear was free for our use! House management and clean been done regularly and frequently in a great manner!
