Perfect for Families and larger groups, but still very comfortable for a couple.

The "Gardenia" villa is designed with a unique and very usable architecture that everyone loves. There is a living/dining room and a kitchen on the first and third floor, and a bathroom on all three floors. There is a spiral staircase to the second level, and all three levels each have their own entrances for privacy and convenience.

49 year old Lincoln Kroll fell in love with Thailand, and especially Koh Tao as a young backpacker, many years passed before he was able to fulfill his dream of building a home on this idyllic tropical island. After ten years of building, with the help of his Thai wife, Woonsen, the couple began offering their custom home as a holiday rental. With the combination of it's unique beauty, and the warm, Family hospitality, the business has now grown to be consistently (specialty lodging), and enjoys hosting very special guests from around the world.
Lincoln Kroll purchased this villa in 2001
Koh Tao is a magical island of tropical beauty, warm water, and warm people. One stay on Koh Tao, and you will be hooked!
From my experience, I think you will want to spend as much time on Koh Tao as possible (at Monkey Flower, or elsewhere)... I hear, time and time again, from our guests that they wished they had more time here. Koh Tao is a small island, but it is full of wonderful experiences! There are so many things to do like snorkeling, & SCUBA diving, hiking, or renting a motorbike, or quad (four wheel all terrain vehicle) to explore the many dirt roads and paths around Koh Tao, there is a vibrant night life, and unlike most of Thailand, it is mostly kid safe, and family friendly, with fire dancing and music, BBQ's on the beach... If you can slip away for a late night, there is dancing till dawn, and really good all night parties. There is a flying trapeze adventure that is really fun (I have done it... It's not just for the kids!), there is mini golf, and you can watch a movie on a big screen, while eating your dinner at many of the local restaurants... There are many great choices for cuisine as well, so you can sample wonderful meals, and deserts from around the world. You can rent kayaks, and even shoot guns and practice archery at the shooting range. The true charm of Koh Tao comes from it's people, and though there are some local Thai's that do not share the happy good feelings, most are really nice, and you can meet interesting local expats, and people from around the world. You can take a long tail boat on a day trip (I recommend the half day trip) around the island, stopping at different snorkeling spots and bays, or visit Koh NangYuan island, which is one of the most photographed beaches in the world, with a very rare three islands which are connected by two thin stretches of white sand beach, where you can ride a world class zip-line between two islands. There are charter sail boats, and other water sports, as well as fishing adventures, you can jump off the big boulders into the deep warm water, or go abssailing on a rock climbing adventure...
Stayed for two nights in the Gardenia Villa, Monkey Flower Villa's newest villa, with 8 other girls in September 2014 and it was an amazing two days. The luxury of the villa was just what we needed after a hectic trip to Koh Phangan. The 3 storey villa is so clean, modern and spacious and we had our own private swimming pool. The scenery from the villa is breathtaking. The best part about trip however was the outstanding service provided to us by Nick, Steve and Mo. They provided us with all the information we needed to make the most of our few days in Koh Tao, provided us with snorkels for the snorkelling, and best of all, they waited on us hand and foot by driving us to wherever we wanted to go at any time of the day, collected us afterwards, and they brought food and drink to us at the villa whenever we asked for it. It was excellent and they really enhanced our few days there and made our trip so much more enjoyable. Thanks Nick, Steve and Mo.
Koh Tao is the paradise you have been looking for (or coming back to!)... Monkey Flower Villas is the perfect place to enjoy the best that Koh Tao, Thailand has to offer!

Because our little resort is very unique, and is typically booked many months in advance, I can only offer a full refund (excluding any transaction costs) if it is requested no less than 45 days before your scheduled arrival date. After 45 days prior to your arrival date, I can offer you a refund if your reserved dates are re-booked by someone else at the regular rates. I hope this makes sense. Please visit our official direct website at www.kotaovilla.com for the most up to date availability and the best rates anywhere, guaranteed.
