About the Owner

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.

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 Leagu

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

  • 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.

From the Owner

I love this peaceful area, in the southern part of the island, where Hideaway Villa is located. Only a 150m 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. 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.

Activity and Interests

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 one can admire a beautiful sunset, and 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, with a nearby Hotel which has a smart restaurant and a couple of bars.

Just a few mins walk away, within this charming area, you will find several fine restaurants, serving both delicious Thai and European food, a few small quiet bars, traditional Thai massages available, Yoga, 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 fine 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 and many more.


The Samui international airport is a 30 min drive.

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.


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.

From the Owner

Hideaway Villa is an open-plan tropical style Villa, with a surrounding lotus pond, where guests often love to daily feed the 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 brand new tropical style bathroom has also recently been 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 salt water swimming pool, 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.
