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.

Our latest villa is a 1 Bedroom tropical property called Villa Amber built in 2017.

I have returned to Europe twice in 10 years of living here – 1 day in Milan and 3 days in watch my beloved Spurs in the Champions League

Why david smart chose Laem Set Beach

I love this peaceful and unspoiled, natural area, in the southern part of the island, where Hideaway Villa is located. Only a 150mtr walk from the Villa is a small secluded beach, where you can see the fishermen go out with their fishing boats to sea. The sea is shallow here at times, and therefore, also ideal for young children.

Hideaway Villa is located in the charming area of Laem Set, where I felt instantly drawn to purchasing land and creating one of my first villas on the island.

There are about half a dozen varied local Thai restaurants around in the vicinity, serving very good local and european dishes, and all within easy walking distance.

Lamai, a 10 minute drive by car, has a wonderful expansive beach with a beautiful clear ocean. Here in Lamai one can also experience and enjoy the many varied restaurants, cafes, local shops and nearby attractions. Also, only a 25 minute drive, is the seaside town of Chaweng.

What makes this villa unique

Hideaway Villa is an elegant open-plan tropical style Villa, with a lovely surrounding wrap around Lotus pond with colourful tropical fish, including carp, catfish and baby turtles. The fish and turtles have now become very friendly and accustomed to people, often coming close to the edge of the water for their daily regular feed!

A new tropical style bathroom has also been imaginatively created, with bath tub, shower and surrounding lush green tropical plants, where you can relax and soak in the bath tub or have a shower at the end of the day.

Located next to the open plan living room and bedroom is the lovely salt water swimming pool, surrounded by tropical greenery, and ready for a daily dip in the water.

A local taxi service and travel agency is also found only a few minutes walk from the Villa.

Guests love elegant Hideaway Villa and is very popular, with its exquisite tropical ambiance and located within the charming area of Laem Set.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hideaway Villa is a real treat. A beautiful villa with a wonderful feel, with a pool only a few short steps from living room and bedroom. I loved the beautiful tranquil feel at night with the soft lights of the pool and garden, creating a peaceful holiday atmosphere for me. Friendly baby turtles are in the lotus pond surrounding the living room with large carp and other fish as well. I chose to feed the fish and turtles during my stay with fish food provided at the villa, and would love to see them swimming around. I found it added to the peaceful and tranquil feel to the villa and area.

David, the owner, really does everything to make the stay so wonderful. Extras, like a bowl of fresh fruit provided on arrival, bottled water in fridge, and even a mobile phone given for my visit, where I could make free local calls, which was very handy. He was extremely kind and helpful, and an advantage to have an owner I could completely trust.

Hideaway made my trip one of the best I have had

Beautiful property. It was our favorite of the whole stay.

  • 5 of 5

This property is beautiful. Pictures do not do it justice. We loved the fish pond, pool, and out door bathroom. The staff and owner were so friendly and helpful too. We ended up extending our stay for an addition 2 days because we loved the place so much.

The local beach, Laem Sett, is only 150 mtrs from Hideaway Villa and is ideal for children as the ocean is shallow in this area. This is a quiet and secluded beach where you can see the local fishermen, with their long tailed boats, come into shore. Also located on the beach is the rustic Thai style Cool Bar where you can enjoy good food and a drink, whilst soaking up the tranquil atmosphere. There is a Hotel also on the beach, which has a smart restaurant and a couple of bars.

Just a few mins walk away from Hideaway Villa, within this charming area you will find several fine restaurants, serving both delicious Thai and Western food, small coffee shop, few small garden bars, traditional Thai massages available, two taxi services and a local travel agency.

7 Elevens and Family Marts, the local 24 hour shops, have ATMs, and are also only a few minutes drive from the villa. There are dozens of other wonderful restaurants only within a 5-10 min drive.

Only 10 minutes away is Lamai beach with its many excellent restaurants and water sports along the beach. Five mins north of Lamai is Silver beach one of the best beaches on the whole island.

Many of the island's main attractions are less than a 10-minute drive from your holiday villa, which include the Butterfly Garden, the Waterfalls, the Aquarium, Elephant Trekking, the Grandmother Grandfather Rocks, horse riding, water sports, Thai Boxing, Thai Cookery courses, Night Markets and many more interesting activities to explore and enjoy.

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.


Complimentary pick up from the airport, ferry terminal or your accommodation on the island to Hideaway Villa and return journey (one in each direction).

The Samui international Airport is a 40 min journey.

Car or moped hire is recommended, just so that you can get around all lthe island. We can help with the arrangements of a car or moped. The villa is located in a quieter part of the island, where it makes driving a more pleasurable experience.

All our cars are insured, with the guest being responsible, and limited, for the first 15,000 Baht of any damage. There is no insurance on mopeds where the guest pays for any damage incurred.

It is the guests' responsibility to ensure that they also have their own comprehensive Travel & Health Insurance, and appropriate driving documentation for Thailand.

You also have the choice of private car hire with a driver, taxis, motor bike taxis, and also the local public transport called Songthaews which run around the ring road; or simply hire a moped or car.


The seaside town of Lamai is a 10 minute drive, Chaweng is a 25 minute drive. The Butterfly garden, Aquarium and Tiger Zoo are all within walking distance.

Within only a 5-15 min journey from the Villa the following Wedding venues can also be reached: Villa Kalyana, YL Residence No 17, Rocky's Boutique Resort, Beach Republic, Samahita Retreat and Samui Ridgeway.
