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 Madrid...to watch my beloved Spurs in the Champions Leagu

Wonderful property, perfect place to relax

  • 5 of 5

Great property, wonderful views. The owner is very helpful in showing one around and pointing out nice restaurants. Villa is tucked away on a hilltop so a vehicle is needed to get around. But wonderfully quiet and private which is what I liked.

This is the third time I've stayed at peaceful villas which says it all I guess.

Being picky there are a couple of minuses. No blue tooth music player for listening to your tunes (so take one along); no soap nor shampoo provided (strange) and the pillows are rock hard (again, bring your own). Picky like I said. everything else was perfect.

Wonderful exclusive getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a extremely private and classy vacation rental perfectly suited to a couple who wants comfort. It is close enough to get to the more chaotic spots on the Island yet far enough away to avoid traffic and noise. Yes the road is steep but it is at the top of a private development which of course is where the great views come from and great security. The pool and other comforts are perfect - 3 showers including the outdoor ones - great satellite tv and kitchen set up. We found it close to some of the top Thai restaurants like Sweet Sisters (10 minutes away) and Green Talay (15 minutes away) and easy drive to the wonderful Five Islands Restaurant on Lipa Noi Beach - easily our favourite beach on the west side. David was very easy to deal with for the booking and his team at Peaceful Villas who took care of the pool, gardens and cleaning every few days. You will not be disappointed in Villa Crystal.

Belle villa bien entretenue avec superbe vue au calme et 10 mn de Lamai en voiture

  • 5 of 5

Très belle villa avec vue 180 sur la mer. Très calme, propre. Accueil très agréable. Villa très propre et bien décorée. De la cuisine, de la chambre, du salon... Vue sur mer ! Loin du bruit et des odeurs de Chaweng. A 10 mn de Lamaii. Prévoir une voiture car rien à faire à pied ( sauf ceux qui aiment les fortes pentes à monter et descendre... ) 4 roues motrices conseillées ( route bitumée pour acceder a la villa mais très raide) . Habitué des villas en location à travers le monde, l'une des plus belles, propres et fonctionnelles. Nous souhaitons y revenir !

From the Owner

I felt very fortunate in being able to obtain the very special area of land on the residency known as Sitara. I have taken great pride in creating and building 3 villas in this wonderfully tranquil and peaceful area of the island. I took full advantage of the beautiful nature provided in this location, by imaginatively creating the villa to be built in amongst the superb granite rocks, tropical greenery and swaying palm trees. .

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Koh Samui Airport at 18 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Shasa at 600 Metres Nearest Ferry : Nathon Pier at 16 Kilometres Nearest Golf : Royal Samui Golf at 14.2 Kilometres Nearest Train : Surathani at 100 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : ShaSa Resort at 600 Metres Nearest Beach : Laem Set beach at 1.5 Kilometres Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

The quiet and secluded Laem Set beach is located a 3-4 minute drive away. Lamai beach, arguably the finest on Samui, is just 10 minutes drive.

Villa Crystal is located at Sitara Retreat which is situated close to the southern tip of the island. Nearby to the villa many of the island's main attractions are only a short drive away, which include Lamai beach, Butterfly Garden, Waterfalls, Aquarium, Elephant trekking, Grandmother, Grandfather Rocks, Thai cookery classes, horse riding, kayaking, amongst others. There are also many fine and varied restaurants serving delicious Thai and European dishes, all within 5-10 minutes drive from the villa.

The southern part of the island still has that rustic charm appeal that the whole of Samui boasted years ago. The beaches on the south remain undeveloped, due mainly to the shallow coastline. If you like to explore you can still find areas where you have the beach to yourself, and never too far away you will find a Thai restaurant where you can enjoy true authentic local dishes.

The villa is a 2-3 min drive, or 15 min walking distance (which is steep in a couple of places) to Laem Sett beach. This is a quiet and secluded beach and here 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 when you can enjoy good food and a drink whilst soaking up the tranquil atmosphere.

Also within the charming area of Laem Sett there are several fine restaurants, serving Thai and Western food, a few small, quiet bars, several traditional Thai massage services, Yoga, couple of local taxi services and a travel agency.

Close by is ShaSa Resort, Centara Villas and Samui Orchid which opens its doors to non residents and has many facilities to enjoy, including smart restaurants and bars.

Five to ten mins away by motorbike or car you have the fishing village of Baan Hua Thanon where fresh fish, fruit and vegetables are sold daily at the local market, together with small local shops, 24-hour Seven Eleven store, doctors surgery and a Chinese Temple, amongst other things.

Lamai beach, which is several kilometres long, has many attractions, and includes fine restaurants and varied water-sports.

It is a condition of Sitara Retreat that a 4 x 4 vehicle (or you can hire a moped if you are a confident rider) is required to drive on the estate. We can assist in the hire of these vehicles at a competitive price. Click the link to our website for details. The roads are also quiet around this area, unlike the busy north of the island.

Travel:

Samui International Airport is 35 minutes drive away. Ferries are located 25 minutes away.

We provide complimentary transfers from airport and ferry (one in each direction).

Distances:

The seaside town of Lamai is a 10 minute drive, Chaweng is a 25 minute drive. The Butterfly Garden, Aquarium and Tiger Zoo are a within a few minutes drive.

Facilities

From the Owner

Villa Crystal has superb 180 degree panoramic views of the shimmering turquoise ocean, which cannot be equalled anywhere else on the island of Koh Samui. The unique feature of the villa is the stunning look and imaginative display of the beautifully-formed rock formation throughout the villa. It is located in the unspoiled south of the island which largely remains unaffected by over-development that unfortunately blights the north. Set in the unique and beautiful location of the residency known as Sitara, Villa Crystal offers a superb stay for anyone visiting the island of Koh Samui.

Notes:

  • The hiring of a car or moped is the easiest way to get around. The Villa is located in the quieter part of the island, and makes driving a more pleasurable experience. Villa Crystal has outstanding ocean views and where you have this, you have a hill to climb. We therefore strongly recommend the use of a 4 x 4 pick- up, or if you are a confident rider, a moped, which we can arrange for you, and have waiting at the villa on your arrival. It is a condition of Sitara Retreat that a 4 x 4 vehicle is required to drive on the estate. We can assist in the hire of these vehicles at a competitive price. The roads are also quiet around this area, unlike the busy north of the island. If your intentions are not to hire a vehicle or moped, taxis can pick you up at the entrance of Sitara, which is a 4 or 5 minute walk down the hill. There is private parking for a vehicle at the Villa.
