Description from owner

Pure serenity and tranquility, staying at this unique and stunning old-style Thai beach house is an experience like no other.

Located right on the beach, overlooking the Five Island and idyllically set amongst towering palms and exotic flowering plants, this is as near to Man Friday's Treasure Island as one can imagine.

This authentic Thai-style house was lovingly created by a Swiss businessman, who spared nothing on creating a home of his dreams. Built in teak, the house was designed with amazing attention to detail, along with a multitude of treasures and artifacts that he collected from his travels around Thailand.

The entrance to this house sets the scene for the rest of this outstanding property. The striking entrance gate and long stone driveway lead down to the main house through a lush private garden that is home to a multitude of tropical plants, trees and flowers.

A green lawn fringes the long swimming pool followed by an arched lily pond entrance, which takes you to the main house overlooking the Gulf of Thailand, the Ang Thong National Marine Park and the Five Islands.

Opening directly onto a secluded beach, spectacular surroundings and cooling sea breezes, the spacious lounge features two large comfortable sofas and authentic Thai style armchairs. Surrounded by interesting artifacts and Thai antiques you'll find yourself being taken back to the 19th century colonial times of Indochina. The house manages to subtly incorporate modern comforts with old-world charm, offering the best of both yesteryear's allure and today's conveniences.

Here, is a place of relaxation, serenity and escape. The house is designed to allow places to gather as a group, or escape to your own peaceful retreat, catering to both socializing and soulful reflection. For those who must catch up on the news or sports, or just want to escape into a movie, there's also a TV, as well as a music system. The dining space is served by a fully equipped kitchen, while outside, a further Thai-style kitchen allows the in-house staff to prepare delicious meals (on request).

The Five Islands Beach House boasts four bedrooms, two of which are located in their own separate buildings adjacent to the main house. The first separate pavilion literally folds open onto a beautiful 10 by 3.5 meter swimming pool, providing the ultimate private retreat from the heat and putting the final touch to this quite magnificent property.

The second pavilion (mirroring the first) is slightly set back to the side of the main house giving it a sense of privacy along with exceptional sea views and its own private terrace. Both bedrooms have high gable roofs with vaulted ceilings and charming, rustic antique furniture retaining the authentic Thai feel, but both with comfortable new mattresses and luxurious cotton bedding, ceiling fans, air-conditioning, a small fridge and a modern shower en-suite.

Open to stunning sea views and overlooking the private tropical garden from the second floor of the main house, is a further double bedroom. Set in the triangular roof gables this bedroom exudes character and charm and comes straight from a scene from a storybook.

While attached to the main house, the fourth bedroom is a favourite with the kids, furnished with two single beds (can be made into a king size bed), poised in front of a large wall-mounted flat-screen TV. This room can be used as a fourth bedroom with all the comforts of the other bedrooms, such as air-con and an en-suite shower room. Alternatively, it has the flexibility to be set out as a TV/chill-out room where it can be a private place to catch up on the news or watch a movie in comfortable and cool surroundings.

The house is managed by our Thai staff who will welcome you with a cooling drink, show you around and are there to ensure you have a comfortable stay. Our efficient staff are always available but never intrusive. Piwi speaks great English and takes pride in welcoming guests to the villa.

Taling Ngam, is an area on the southern part of Koh Samui and is basically untouched by developers. Here you will find a much more relaxed feeling away from the hustle and bustle and the busy roads towards the north. Although the Five Islands Beach House is within close vicinity to several restaurants, peace and serenity rule the day.

The Five Island beach house is located 45 minutes to the airport, 30 minutes to Chaweng, 10 minutes to Nathon and 1 second to paradise.

Your holiday package includes airport transfers, electricity, high speed Wi-Fi & satellite TV. Rooms are cleaned daily, and linen & sheets are changed every four days.

Staying at the Beach House, offers a true Thai experience, from the décor to the surroundings to the famous Thai hospitality. You will never get bored of the postcard-perfect surroundings of this unique property. The beautiful, tropical outdoor spaces will take your breath away, whilst the warm, colourful interiors and conversation-starting artifacts will tempt you to pull up a chair and open a bottle of wine, and just contemplate life. While there's plenty to do on Samui, at Five Islands Beach House, you don't need to do anything if you don't want to - you can just... be.

SMALLER GROUPS:

We would consider letting part of the villa out for groups of 4 people or less at a reduced rate. Please enquire for details.

GUEST REVIEWS:

Our villa has been on the rental market for a while now but we are new to VHR. To see guest testimonials and reviews, please look for us on Holiday Lettings, Owners Direct, Air BnB or our own net location beachousesamui.

From the owners: Peter & Ann:

'The Five Islands Beach House is our latest 'baby'. We've always had a passion for property, and have made Samui our home after falling in love with the island. Along with living on the island, we own another beachfront property, and we make it our job to ensure that our villas are maintained to a high standard and that our guests feel welcome and their needs are met - basing our expectations on the level of service we've experienced through our extensive travels abroad. Although we have our own home on Samui, when our beachfront villas are not occupied by holidaymakers, we ourselves take on the role of 'guests' and experience them as you would, tweaking here and there, to make them the perfect holiday escape.

We have opened the doors to this very special house, sharing it with not only our friends and family, but also holidaymakers from across the globe, wanting to experience that famous Thai hospitality and all Samui has to offer, so they'll understand why we chose to make this island paradise our home'.

Please note that smoking is allowed at this property but only out side. Ashtrays are provided.

We also own one other beach villa. It is on the north east of the island and is called Villa Charmant. You can also find this property on Vacation Home Rentals and on Trip-advisor. Please do not hesitate to get in-touch if you would like more information'.

Beds: 3 King Beds, 2 Twin Beds, 1 Crib

About the area

Taling Ngam on the South-West of Koh Samui is at the quieter end of the island, with the villa nestled happily within the luscious Thai palm trees, flora and fauna. It is accessible by road and on foot, down a path away from the busier highway, sat on the beach. Taling Ngam is a more secluded area acting as a perfect retreat from bustling Bangrak, Maenam and Chaweng yet is only around 25-35 minutes from those livelier areas. Ko Samui Airport (USM) is a private airport originally built by Bangkok Airways, which is still the main operator and was for a long time the only airline with services to Ko Samui from mainland Thailand. The airport is additionally served by Thai Airways International. Several ferries connect the island with the mainland, including the car ferry from Don Sak to a pier in the west of the island, south of the main town Nathon. Public buses to all parts of the mainland operate from a small bus station located in the south of Nathon. Songthaews (tuk-tuk style buses) circle the ring road, and private taxis are available throughout the island although these are often criticised for failure to use meters and flagrant overcharging.
