About the property


The "Upper" Villa ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qtmYIyiQ1Js ) is our premier two bedroom villa, the most beautiful, romantic, and fun place to stay on Koh Tao! The "Upper" has a huge master bedroom, the main living room, the round bathroom, along with the huge, award winning private infinity edge swimming pool & deck. There is a bridge to the roof (Jump into the pool, if you dare!), and the beautiful, tropical grounds. The master bedroom has a king size "flying" bed, a 50" flat screen TV, with premium programing by satellite, DVD player and library, Wi-Fi ADSL internet access (always free), air-con, & the best views on Koh Tao, all a short (3-5min.) walk (or a quick complimentary drive to anywhere you want to go!) down the hill to Sairee beach, the longest & most popular beach on Koh Tao... The "Upper" has a second big air-con bedroom with full size (double) bed, and an additional fold out couch bed, available at no extra charge. There are many great restaurants that will deliver wonderful meals to your villa door. We can arrange for in-house massage, private yoga sessions, and much, much more. There is a carp and giant catfish pond, just outside of the master bedroom window, and some fish food for hand feeding them, if you like... I promise you a wonderful time!

As our guest, you will enjoy our famous 24 hour a day complimentary car and driver service, for pick-up and drop-off to anywhere you want to go on Koh Tao, during your entire stay! Many people do not realize that normal taxi service on Koh Tao is very expensive compared to other parts of Thailand, with a simple ride from town to town often costing 500. Thai Baht or more one way, and TWICE that amount late at night. If you were considering renting motorbikes, our driver service can also save you from possible extortion by unscrupulous renters, who prey on tourists, and the risks of riding a motorcycle on an island with many dirt roads and difficult riding conditions. For these reasons, our car and driver service is not only convenient, but also an incredible value!

When you check in, you will be given a local Thai mobile phone, with important numbers and credit already installed. When you need to be dropped off or picked up, simply speed dial your driver, who will be there in a few short minutes.

No other accommodation on Koh Tao offers this kind of complete transportation solution.

About Lincoln

Monkey Flower Villas was hand built by artist/owner Lincoln Kroll, along with his wife, Woonsen, over more than a decade. Starting out by building their dream home, Lincoln & Woonsen kept building and now have four unique luxury villas on their one and a half acre estate. Having started the villas rental business almost as an after thought, the owners wanted to offer their guests the best experience possible... "We consider every one of our guests to be very special, and part of our Family." Monkey Flower Villas remains a Family owned and operated business, and puts a lot of love into everything they do.

Lincoln purchased this in 2001

Why Lincoln chose Thailand

Pure paradise! Words and photos don't do our little resort justice... We hear it all the time from our guests, that it is even more beautiful than the photos... Warm water, warm people, day and night fun and excitement... Please be our very special guests, I know that you will be very happy you did!

What makes this unique

Monkey Flower Villas offers the best of Koh Tao, and also the best value. Our location is close to all the action of the town and beach, but without the noise, and in a much more private and secure location. I like to say that we are the Beverly Hills of Koh Tao. Not only will you enjoy the largest rooms and private swimming pool on Koh Tao, but you will never tire of the most stunning views imaginable, from the award winning, private infinity edge swimming pool, and from the living room and sun deck... You can even enjoy the roof top views with access from a bridge, and jump into the pool (if you dare!)... Be as quiet or as noisy as you like... It is all yours! Our lovely staff is always there to help you have the best experience possible. When you check-in, you will be given a local Thai mobile phone with all of the important numbers and credit, already installed. You will appreciate our famous 24 hour a day car and driver service, for drop-off and pick-up to anywhere you want to go on Koh Tao, during your entire stay! We are very proud of our customer service, and we consistently rank at #1 on the most popular review sites. I hope that you will be our very special guests!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Absolutely amazing villa(s), no downsides at all with this rental! The place and the view are the best, the location is ideal (very quiet and still very close from Sairee village) and the price is reasonnably fair.

Our group of 9 mates rented the "Gardenia" villa for 3 nights in November. Even before we arrived, the owner (Lincoln) was very helpful and was responding every email as quickly as he could. As soon as we got to Koh Tao, and during our entire stay, the whole staff (and especially Nick, Steve and Mo) was available at anytime and they did everything they could to offer us the best experience ever! We loved it so much that we extended our stay for 2 extra nights in the "Upper" villa, which is even more beautiful. Even though this second villa is not designed for a big group, they added extra beds without problems.

I highly recommend Monkey Flower villa to anyone, even for groups of friends with limited budget as the price is fairly reasonable for the experience.

And I wanted to thank you again everyone at the villa(s) for your service and your kindness. We had the best time!

Notes on accommodation: The "upper" residence may not be a safe place for un-attended small children, as there are many high places, swimming pools and fish ponds which could be a hazard to un-attended children. For small children, the "lower" residence is probably best. Outside: Monkey Flower Villa is situated on approx. one and a half acres of beautiful view land, about 100 meters above the sea. The property has been extensively landscaped, and offers a beautiful and serene environment which will inspired and re-charged your senses! The "Upper" villa has a large private infinite edge swimming pool and whirlpool with romantic colored lights at night... it's all yours, no need to share, and no one can see you if you decide to skinny dip!
