About Monique Webb

We are a British couple who love to travel and we fell in love with the beautiful Thai island of Ko Samui over 15 years ago when we travelled with our young family around Thailand.

Monique Webb purchased this villa in 2009

Why Monique Webb chose Mae Nam Beach

We discovered this brand new resort when it was still in it's construction stage so were able to choose the plot and style of villa which best suited our family. We also loved the fact that we were part of a beautiful resort in the hills behind the village of Maenam so we could enjoy all the facilities here in this tranquil setting.

We feel that we are in the jungle listening to the birds and the geckos but only a 10 min stroll to the stunning Maenam beach.

What makes this villa unique

We feel very secure due to the fact that the resort provide 24hr security with a guard who sits directly outside our villa. A short stroll next door to reception (also open 24hrs) allows us to book taxis, day trips, scooters etc and room service can be provided from the resort restaurant, together with stunning thai buffet nights around the resort pool.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Posted on Tripadvisor Jan 2016

We travelled to villa 101 from KL, Malaysia to spend Christmas and New Year.

The villa as a perfect size for the family and a great layout. My 2 young kids slept upstairs in twin beds, in the room opposite, through the HUGE bathroom area, slept a friend. Upstairs has a little fridge so you don't have to faff about getting downstairs and through into the kitchen area at night.

We were in the master bedroom which was downstairs which had a ensuite and my mother in law was in the other room with her ensuite.

The living area and kitchen are in a separate area (sala) which is great as everyone can clatter about it you're having a lie in - you hear nada!

Fully equipped kitchen, internet, AC, lounge area, eating area, Tv and DVD and a cleaner every 3 days - what else could you ask for?!

The pool is fab! Many an afternoon was spent at the villa pool, lounging about and sitting in the little eating area. Super amount of carp swimming about.

Wonderful butterflies and dragonflies and it's so quiet.

We used the complex DVDs (just hired them out for no fee) when it rained for 1 day - the only day. And we used the gym and the swimming pool which makes a nice change. The food was ok at the complex, quite pricey but for the first night and first morning it was ideal. I jumped in a cab and went to Tesco and got a 2 weeks supply of stuff.

We kind of hung out at the pool and then walked down to the beach, which is just a 10 min walk down hill. Super easy.(and theres is a family mart with an ATM) The beach is great. We spent most of our days at Moonhut beach (Maenam beach) as it was very quiet and not too touristy. The view is amazing.

There's a little orange cafe just down from the villa which we spent a lot of time in. The food is GREAT. So tasty!

If we go back to Koh Samui, we'll certainly be hiring from Monique again.

Great villa..so spacious and close to everything

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay at this villa. Monique was a great help supporting us with information and in touch always...could not have asked for more. You Have the facilities of the hotel on site but masses of space in beautiful villa. Would recommend a car, just makes getting around island easier and cheaper and is easy to do.

Beautiful villa in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the kirikayan villa for 5 days and it was absolutely the most beautiful villa we have ever had the pleasure of staying in.

The villa was very spacious, clean and beautifully decorated throughout. The private pool made it ever better! You also have access to the resort pool which we did most mornings.

Fantastic location, just a few minutes walk from all the local shops and restaurants. We were given lots of recommendations to all of the hidden gems in the area, beautiful beaches and probably the best restaurants I have been to (that we probably would never of found ourselves!)

This gave the holiday even more of a personal touch, thank you so much for having us and we will definitely be returning very soon!

Perfect for a relaxing break

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from a really relaxing stay at villa 101, Kirikayan. After a busy trip travelling around Asia this was the perfect place to wind down. As we were two couples the two storey set up worked really well for us, it felt more like 2 separate apartments with a communal living area and a private pool just for us.

The Kirikayan resort is very green with a beautiful pool, we spent our time split between our own pool and here which we often had to ourselves. The on site restaurant' Sankala' is just a few steps away and well worth a try. It's a bit pricier than the local restaurants but we had a lovely meal here one evening when we were feeling too lazy to venture out. You can wander 100 yards down the road and eat very cheaply at a great place called Kwangkao, perfect for breakfast, lunch and even takeaways to eat back at the villa ! Don't be put off by first impressions, it is VERY basic but the food is amazing !

We enjoyed the walk to Maenam beach during the day (about 15-20 mins) but we would advise a taxi at night as the lane is not very well lit. We just booked ours at reception next door.

The owner, Monique, checked on us regularly to make sure we had everything we needed and we just had to pick up and drop off the keys at reception. If we go back to Samui we would all be very happy to stay here again.

Owner's Response: So lovely to read this review and to hear how much you enjoyed your recent stay at our villa ! All of my guests these past few months have told me how great the Kwangkao cafe along the lane is and I must confess my husband and I ate many take away's in the shade of the 'sala' from there on our last trip :) It would be our pleasure to welcome you back anytime !

Wonderful Villa in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the villa in April we were a group of three families with young children, the villa was perfect for our needs, lovely rooms all air conditioned and a lovely private pool, we also spent some time at the beautiful resort pool, especially at happy hour! :- )

We used minibus taxis to get around, the reception would arrange them for us.

Resort staff were all wonderful, and very helpful Monique was very helpful and knowledgeable about Samui, giving us lots of restaurant recommendations which we tried most. There's also a lovely little cafe down the road that would deliver to the villa and very reasonably priced.

Having young children we would definitely recommend Choeng Mon beach which we visited nearly every other day, perfect for little ones as it's really shallow. Another favourite was the walking street on a Friday/Mon night at Fisherman's Village, the kids loved the entertainment.. and the food!

And a boat trip to Ang Thong National Marine Park is a must!

We all had a great time in the Villa and discovering Samui, we really hope to come back soon.

Owner's Response: I am really pleased to hear that the villa worked so well for your large party and that you were able to book large minibus taxis from reception so easily. We have always recommended car hire to our guests but are increasingly finding guests are happy just walking into Maenam or booking taxis to go into neighbouring towns. Thank you Beverley, for taking the time to write this informative review and it would be a pleasure to welcome you all back one day

Great villa, great location

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time here last week.4 couples and still plenty of room so didn't feel crowded. Bedrooms are huge and air conditioned, which we really needed at night.

There is a large flat screen tv in the lounge where we managed to hook up our netflix account with an HDMI cable so recommend taking one with you. There's also a utility room with washing machine and iron/ironing board which came in handy.

Really nice private pool and another fabulous pool you can use at the Kirikayan resort too. It was also great having reception just next door and security sitting right outside the gate.

Plenty of excellent restaurants locally in Maenam, and we would jump in a taxi to the new Wharf centre in Fisherman's village 10 mins away for unlimited choice. The resort do have a shuttle bus but there is a charge for it.

All in all a great time was had by all and we will be back one day !

Owner's Response: So happy to hear you all enjoyed your stay at our villa. Yes, the new Wharf centre is a great place to go ! I believe the charge to use the Kirikayan shuttle bus which takes you to their sister hotel on Chaweng beach (via Fisherman's village ) is now 100 baht per passenger. Thank you for taking the time to write this review and we would love to welcome you all back anytime !

Large bedrooms but requires updating/refreshing

  • 1 of 5

Unfortunately our recent holiday at the villa was full of disappointment and we eventually choose to move out of the villa - 3 nights into our stay, due to safety concerns - one of the children being electrocuted from a live wire on the external steps between the pool and the living room. That being said the owner of the property did provide a partial refund and was very apologetic about the situation that had arose. Less can be said of the Kirikayan resort (in which the property is located). Very disappointed with their lack of empathy or assistance in what could have been a much serious situation that what we found ourselves to be in.

The villa itself is quite large with big open bedrooms and a open plan living room and kitchen. However the fitting and fixtures are somewhat dated and require refreshing. For example main TV in living room - volume/channel buttons are worn and not working, AC system smells and does not operate efficiently (often leaked water when turned off in the evening). In addition we found the cleanliness to not be upto a high standard and required to clean down all the surfaces and the microwave when we arrived. The villa does have a maid who cleans 3 times a week, she did attend the property however failed to lock up the bedrooms when she left. As we had left the property for the day to go to the beach, we found all the bedroom doors to be unlocked with our valuables in when arrived back later that day.

I'm led to believe that a fully qualified electrician has now been to the property to fix the issues with the live wires and external lights which forced us to leave the property and hence the associated 1 star which we can only give. The cost of the villa is certainly not the most expensive on Koh Samui but we do feel that some investment in ongoing maintenance is required and an Emergency contact within Thailand if any problems do occur. Clearly the Kiriyikan resort (next door) could only offer us a waiting game whilst they made contact with the UK owner - which was not convenient at 3am UK time.

We moved to the newly furbished Mantra Samui resort (10 mins down the road) where the staff were excellent and accommodated us accordingly.

Owner's Response: Hi Mark, I must confess I am very surprised by your one star rating taking into account all our conversations in which you never once expressed any disappointment in the standard of the villa? I understand how irritating it must have been for you to start your holiday with 4 days of unprecedented torrential rain, in what was supposed to be the hot dry season. Unfortunately this non stop rain (which caused floods and power cuts all over the island) caused some water to leak into one of the outside (low voltage) light switches. As soon as the problem was flagged up, the electrics were immediately disabled to this switch. However, I completely understood your apprehension at that time and naturally at my expense, I subsequently arranged for a couple of options to be made available to you until an electrician could carry out a thorough check during daylight hours. Firstly to move into the same sized villa next door, or alternatively to move into 2 family suites. You declined both options and requested a refund for all remaining nights (which I very promptly returned to you), The villa was thoroughly checked the next morning and the problem rectified, by which time you had already left. When I checked with you the following day to make sure you had found something suitable, from your response it seemed to me you were more unhappy about the weather than anything else, telling me the forecast was bad for the remainder of your stay. Unlike the vast majority of private villas in Samui, we are fortunate in that we do have a 24 hour security guard located directly in front of our villa. However I take on board your comments about having all the doors locked and although we have never experienced a problem in 10 years, this has been addressed. The happiness and well being of my guests is always my number one priority and I still feel I acted in a caring and professional manner given the circumstances. I am genuinely sorry you did not have a good experience in Samui and hope it does not put you off returning to this beautiful Island one day.
