About the property

White Villa is the perfect base for a relaxing holiday on Koh Samui

White Villa is a stunning, modern villa with a beautiful private infinity swimming pool. A spacious and comfortable holiday home, the villa is the perfect base for a truly relaxing holiday in the sunshine on the lovely tropical island of Koh Samui. The villa is located amongst the coconut palms in a quiet area and has views of the tree-covered mountains. White Villa has 2 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and sleeps four. There is also a sofa bed in the air conditioned office. The open plan living space is light and bright with floor-to-ceiling windows. Sliding doors lead out onto the many inviting terraces - ideal for outdoor living. A lush, private walled garden with tropical flowers, palms and trees surrounds the villa. White Villa is situated away from the main road yet it’s only five minutes drive to Maenam village with its fabulous golden sandy palm-fringed beach. Here you’ll also find a great choice of restaurants and bars as well as all the amenities you'll need during your stay. White Villa is ideal for a romantic getaway or a family holiday.

Maenam: Maenam is situated in the north of the island. It has a good choice of shops, restaurants and bars but it's easy to get away from it all as the golden, sandy beach here is several km long. The waters at Maenam are great for swimming and there are spectacular views of Koh Phangan from the beach. If you tire of swimming in the pool at the villa or lounging on the white sandy beaches there are some beautiful walks - with beautiful views and you can walk directly from the villa up the hill towards the centre of the island. If you're looking for a bit of excitement, Canopy Adventures, with its exhilarating zip wire ride through the treetops, is within walking distance of White Villa. Maenam has all the amenities for holidaymakers yet still retains much of its Thai flavour. There's a wide choice of massage and pampering - you could go to a hotel spa or opt for one of the more intimate local salons for that all-important Thai massage.

There are plenty of walks near White Villa and there is a waterfall within walking distance of the house.

The climate in Koh Samui is fairly constant all year round with temperatures usually around 30 degrees. The warmest and driest months are February to June when it can get as hot as 35 degrees. There is a short rainy season roughly from October to December.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wunderschöne Villa etwas abseits vom Rummel. Lorraine hat uns herzlich empfangen und uns gute Tipps gegeben für Mietauto, Einkauf usw.

Es ist alles vorhanden was man sich wünscht und braucht. Wir hatten eine wunderschöne Woche in der Villa und werden bei Gelegenheit sicher wiederkommen.

Beautiful villa just off the beaten track. Lorraine received us warmly and gave us good advice for car rental, shopping, etc.

It has everything you could want and need. We had a wonderful week at the villa and will hopefully return one day.

Great House in Mae Nam

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house in a quiet hillside location. 5 mins drive from the ring road. House was exceptionally clean and well maintained. Very large pool and all the amenities you would require including very fast wifi (60mbps), very large pool (crystal clean), new smart TV, excellent outdoor balcony and large queen size comfortable beds. Would highly recommend and would book again.

Peace and quiet close to the action

  • 5 of 5

The villa is well maintained and in a great location. It is so peaceful and surrounded by coconut and banana trees but only 4km Into the centre of Maenam. There are lots of beautiful birds and butterflies around in the garden and we even saw a red squirrel one day. We hired a car, so it's only about 5 mins drive down to the town. There are lots of good eating places to choose from such as Twins, Spices, Romans, which were our three favourites. The pool is 9 metres long, so more than adequate for doing some exercise and for cooling down. The street market in Maenam on Thursday night and Fishermans Village on Friday night are well worth a visit,

The sun is on the pool area in the morning until about 1.30, so plenty of time to catch the sun. It is so relaxing at the villa and so peaceful. It is also very private as the villa next door is screened off by very tall bamboo.

If you open up all the windows in the lounge it is lovely and there are fly screen doors on all of them, which is great.

The bed in the master bed room is so comfortable and the air conditioning is very efficient and quiet.

We didn't cook while we were there as it is so cheap to eat out. There is a hob but we only used it to boil eggs for breakfast.

We loved the villa so much we are looking to book again for 2017. We Have a rule that we don't go to the same place twice, but we enjoyed this so much we will make an exception.

Beautiful, peaceful, amazing

  • 5 of 5

An immaculate, stylish villa. The perfect place to unwind after a long haul flight. Having our own private pool was the biggest bonus - we relaxed there in the mornings and had it to look forward to when coming home in the evenings. The setting is peaceful and the villa itself had everything we needed/wanted. There is television, wifi and a music system but we mainly chose to sit outside in the evenings with the ceiling fans and pool lights on listening to the vocal frogs. Maenam itself retains a traditional Thai feel with old, Chinese style buildings and a relatively quiet beach. The villa is set some way up a hill making car hire important. However, we often chose to walk down to Maenam and stop at the roadside food stalls on the way down. Just a great place to be all round.

White Villa, Maenam Beach

  • 5 of 5

Spent a lovely two weeks at White Villa in Maenam. The villa is beautifully presented and is set in peaceful gardens with a decent sized pool. The only downside of the pool area is that you only get the sun until 1pm, and there is no-where else really to move the sunloungers to if you are seeking all-day sunbathing. Koh Samui itself is very easy to get around. A hirecar is vital for this villa as it is set in a small complex of about 9 other villas and quite a distance from the main road. There is a large Tesco just a 15 minute drive from the villa for provisions. The main town has plentiful places to eat, drink and shop. Fishermans village is lovely, slightly more expensive than if you go off the beaten track, but plenty of choice. Our favourite restaurant was Big Johns seafood, which was in a lovely beachside location with excellent food and service. More expensive for beers though! It is worthwhile just driving round the island and going off the beaten track as you'll come across stunning temples and beaches which were not heaving with other tourists. We went elephant trekking which was great fun, and had a day 'deep' sea fishing where the lady who cooked us lunch kept us very much entertained with her hilarious stories, take plenty suncream though! All in all, a fantastic time was had in Koh Samui, and I would definately recommend the villa if going to Koh Samui.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review and I'm really happy to hear that you had so much fun - sounds like you did a lot of exploring. It's really worth driving to the less busy corners of the island because you get to discover all those beautiful hidden away places that so many people miss when they come to Samui. I'm so pleased that you had a peaceful and relaxing stay at White Villa. You're right about the sun - it does leave the pool terrace at 1pm but depending on the time of year, there's often a sunny spot in the garden for a chair. And of course there's usually some afternoon sun to be had on one of Samui's many beautiful beaches :-) With best wishes to you both and I hope you'll decide to come back again one day. Jenny

A fabulous, relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much, Jenny and Lorraine - White Villa was the perfect base for the most fantastic and relaxing holiday. Totally awesome!

The villa was so lovely, tranquil and very easy to be in - clean, spacious and with beautiful views across the coconut plantations. It was really relaxing to sit on the terrace with a book, or soak up the sun in the pretty garden and I'll never forget floating in the infinity pool watching the night sky. It very quickly felt like home-from-home, such a peaceful and comfortable place to come back to after forays around this stunning island, or just to hang out and chill in :-)

Maenam village has some great places to eat, is fun to wander round and has all the shops you need. The beaches we explored around the island were gorgeous, each with a character of their own, beautiful clear water to swim in and plenty of opportunities to snorkel or just get a damn fine massage. Our visit to Ang Thong National Park was brilliant... then there was the elephant ride across the island, that was a blast... and I can't forget the zip wire ride over the tree tops with Canopy Adventures... I could go on, the highlights were endless.

We had a really wonderful holiday and we would love to come back again. We would definitely recommend White Villa.

White Villa is in a quiet area away from the main road, amongst the coconut trees on the beautiful island of Koh Samui. There are many fabulous beaches on Koh Samui but the golden, sandy beach at Maenam is one of the most peaceful and laid-back on the island and it's just 3km from the villa. Maenam village still retains its traditional Thai flavour yet has a good choice of shops, restaurants and bars. The palm fringed beach is several km long so you can easily find peace and quiet. The sea is great for swimming and there are spectacular views of Koh Phangan from Maenam Beach.

Maenam has everything you need for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday - beautiful beach, good choice of restaurants serving mouth-watering cuisine, lovely walks with spectacular views. You can pamper yourself with a massage on the beach or at one of Maenam's many spas. Koh Samui is a great getaway for a tropical holiday - it has beautiful beaches, as well as water sports, golf, shopping and a vibrant night life.

Golf: The spectacular and challenging 18 hole golf course at the Santiburi Golf Club is just a five minute drive from White Villa. There are fabulous views of the island from the clubhouse.
