About david smart

I moved to Koh Samui 2005 from Cirencester in the UK, where I had my own Flooring business. I was also involved in property development & rental and converted a large number of various style properties in the UK. From my first visit to Thailand in 1990 I had a growing desire to live in Thailand and create a new challenge. Inspired by opportunity for business I chose Koh Samui.

Moving here, I created 3 properties; Palm View, Butterfly Garden and Hideaway Villa. Later, we completed 3 more villas on the beautiful ocean view, Sitara Retreat, named Villa Crystal, Emerald and Sapphire. We manage Villa Serendipity for a neighbour from Hong Kong.

Villa Amber is our latest addition of a 1 Bedroom tropical Villa built in 2017.

I have returned to Europe twice in 10 years of living here – one day in Milan and 3 days to watch my beloved Spurs in the Champions League.

Why david smart chose Maret

I was very drawn to this particular area where there is an attractive local beach only a 5 min walk away called Ban Chuet, and is lined with many lovely Restaurants. The Bay is not commercialised, and provides a local charm and beauty to the vicinity, where you can easily wile away your days and evenings.

Only minutes drive away, or an 8 minute walk, is the small fishing village of Baan Hua Thanon for shopping at the local market and interesting individual shops, doctors surgery, 24hr 7-Eleven shop and a Chinese Temple located here. There is also a Wednesday evening Night Market located alongside the Chinese Temple.

Lamai is a 5 minute drive, where you will find a beautiful expansive beach, stretching for miles, with the fresh clear ocean in which to swim. Here in Lamai there are also many varied restaurants, shops and local attractions.

What makes this villa unique

Having gained a great deal of experience of the property market on Koh Samui, I designed Palm View Villa myself. I created the large swimming pool as the focal point, with the villa wrapped around the pool, and have received many positive comments from guests on the design of Palm View. Two spacious Bedrooms and the Living area all have French doors which open out onto the pool. This is beautifully lit at evening time and creates a peaceful and serene ambiance. We also include within the rental of the Villa, the use of an automatic Toyota Avanza vehicle at no extra cost.

The villa is private and designed within a walled boundary providing safety and security whilst staying here.

I love the area with the coconut plantations and lush greenery, where you will see the water buffalo grazing nearby. With only an 8 minute walk to Bang Chuet Bay and the local village of Ban Lamon, it provided the perfect location to create Palm View Villa.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Palm View Villa is a real treasure. It has a beautiful, really good sized pool, larger than average for a villa, set in the centre, with the rooms wrapped around the pool, which I loved the ambience and atmosphere I found it gave. It also felt secure with gated entrance. Absolutely beautiful at night as well where the pool is lit up and we would sit out and relax, with sometimes a midnite swim in the fresh water pool.

The beach and local restaurants were only about a 10 min walk for us. David, the owner, was fantastic. So helpful and nothing was too much trouble for him. The villa was kept really clean by the thai cleaning staff and bed linen changed every 3 days. Palm View gave us a fantastic stay, one I will never forget and highly recommend.

Delightfully private and calm

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Butterfly villa. The house is open and surrounded by jungle. Windows open mean the breezes blow through. David and Neung and the team were delightful, and we would have stayed another 6 months if work in Europe had not called us back. Many thanks for your hospitality and for the wonderful experience that was Butterfly villa and Koh Samui.

Car: recommended


The nearest beach to Palm View Villa is Bang Chuet Bay, only 700 mtrs and less than a 10 min walk away. The attractive Bay has several fine restaurants, serving both delicious Thai and Western food. There is the popular Krao Chao Ban restaurant and Tiki Tiki Beach Restaurant & Bar, to name only two, with all the restaurants idyllically set looking over the lovely Bay. Tiki Tiki sometimes has live music, and caters also for beach weddings.

Bang Chuet Bay is not commercialised, and provides a local charm and beauty to the vicinity, where you can easily wile away your days and evenings.

A few Thai style salas can be rented by the day, along with various water sports at Bang Chuet Bay.

It still has the feel on Koh Samui of over 20 years ago, unlike the north of the island. We are frequently told by guests they find the Thai people in this southern part of the island extremely hospitable, and welcoming. In the north where it is far more crowded and touristy on the island there is not always the opportunity to discover the true warmth and charm of the local people.

Further Details:

Within walking distance of the Villa there are also many fine restaurants, doctors surgery, barbers, Chinese temple and some interesting local shops.

There is a Wednesday Night Market held around the Chinese Temple area with many little stalls to stroll around,

A daily fish market selling various other produce can be found just 2 minutes ride away at Baan Hua Thanon, plus many other local shops of all descriptions. A Seven Eleven, 24 hr opening with ATM, is located here.

With the Lotus Tesco Superstore in Lamai, and the 24hr Tesco Express just less than a 5 minute drive, your every need is catered for. There is also the popular large food supermarket, Makro, only an 8 min drive from the villa where you can also buy all your grocery shopping.

Thai boxing is popular and Lamai, only a 5 min drive, has its own professional and amateur boxing ring.

There are also Temples to visit, Namsuang Waterfalls, Snake Farm, Crocodile Farm, Elephant trekking, excellent Thai Cookery courses, horse riding, amongst others, which can be found only a short distance drive.


A car is recommended. An automatic Toyota Avanza car is included within the rental price for 4 bedroom Palm View Villa. Should you wish to have the use of a small motorcycle, this can be rented cheaply, daily or weekly.

Airport is 30 mins drive. Ferry port is 20 min drive. Direct flights from Hong Kong, Singapore, Phuket and Bangkok (tel: + 66 2 265 55552). Ferries from Surat Thani. Seatran Ferry (tel: + 66 77 231 811). Raja Ferry (tel: + 66 77 415 230).


Lamai is a seaside town 5 mins drive from the villa, with shops, fine restaurants, bars and a beautiful, expansive beach, which is never really crowded. If you have the energy the nightlife can go on until 4am or later, or just take it easy in one of the many fantastic beachside restaurants.

Within a 5 - 15 min journey from the Villa the following Wedding venues can also be reached: Samahiti Retreat, Samui Ridgeway and Pavilion. The exquisite Rocky's Boutique Resort is also only a 3 min drive and hosts weddings in a secluded and romantic setting. It is a very impressive location for a special anniversary or occasion.
