Baan Tii Hok, Kalara Gardens, Bang Por Koh Samui


Details of the Villa

Baan Tii Hok is a two storey two bedroom semi-detached home built on a small development of eleven units in the unspoilt area of Bang Por on the island of Koh Samui. Situated a very short distance from the main ring road on the island it is easily accessible and at the same time, finds itself in a most secluded hillside location. The location is ideal for a family holiday where the main objective is to relax and enjoy the sun beside one of the two large infinity edge pools. Bang Po beach which extends for approximately 3kms along the cost is a mere ten minutes walk or two minute drive from the property The views from the property are spectacular from the balcony, terrace and living room. Through the coconut palms, the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Thailand stretch as far as the eye can see, interrupted only by the islands of Ko Phangan and Ko Tao in the mid-distance. The property is far enough away from the clamour of the night life areas of Chaweng and Lamai, not to be spoilt by them, but close enough to visit these hotspots by car, taxi or songtaew. Car hire is essential, but is relatively inexpensive and opens up the whole of the island to visitors. Competitive rates have been agreed with a local car hire company.A hire car will also make shopping very much more convenient. There is ample parking on the site. There are a number of beach-side restaurants on the ring road at the end of Soi 5. The Haad Ban Po Restaurant, directly opposite the entrance to Soi 5 is highly recommended. The food is excellent and Mo, the proprietor offers a take-away and delivery service. A host of restaurants are available in Maenam and Nathon, which are only a fifteen and ten minute drive respectively, from the property. Steps from the pool area lead to a terrace, which is furnished with basket weave type furniture, from which the view across the gulf can be enjoyed. Inside, the property is tastefully furnished, mostly in hard wood, either Chinese Oak or Teak, with very large L shaped sofa in the living area. In the same area, there is a large LED SMART TV, together with a DVD player and satellite TV receiver. A selection of novels and games is available for the use of guests. The whole of the spacious ground-floor area is open plan and air-conditioned from May 2012. The kitchen is fully fitted to include an electric oven and gas hob, fridge-freezer, microwave, kettle and toaster. There is a comprehensive selection of glassware, crockery and cutlery, including plastic ware for use in the pool area. The dining area is furnished with a magnificent teak and water hyacinth dining table with matching spoon-backed chairs . There is a large storage cupboard under the stairs and a guest cloak room between the living and dining areas. A mini-safe is installed for the storage of valuables. The lounge and dining areas are both fitted with efficient ceiling fans as an alternative to the large airconditioning unit. Upstairs there are two spacious, air-conditioned bedrooms, both en-suite, with a Chinese oak king-size bed in each, together with ample storage space in the form of wardrobes, bedside cabinets and chests of drawers. Each bedroom opens onto a balcony and the front balcony is furnished with a table and chairs, making this an ideal spot for alfresco meals whilst admiring the sumptuous view across the ocean. All windows and exterior doors are fitted with insect screens, enabling the villa to be opened up to refreshing breezes, without interference from insects. The 360 degree video gives a more detailed view of the development. Please note the villa interior featured in the video is not Baan Tii Hok. The layout is the same, but furnishing is different. For shopping essentials, there is a 7-11 store less than 1 kilometre from the property, a Tesco Lotus store (similar to a Tesco Express in the UK, but larger) in Nathon, a mere ten minutes drive away and a Tesco Lotus superstore on the ring road, outside Chaweng, twenty-five minutes drive away. For other shopping there are myriads of shops in Nathon, Maenam, Chaweng and Lamai. Souvenir hunters should have no fear of leaving empty handed. Water sports are abundant in the areas of Maenam, Bophut and Chaweng and there are numerous areas of local interest to visit, including the aquarium and tiger zoo in the south of the island, which offers a spectacular bird and tiger show. In addition daily monkey shows are given in the Bophut Monkey Theatre, which gives a vivid insight into the lives of these lovable creatures, including a demonstration of how they earn their keep harvesting coconuts from the trees. Excellent golf facilites are available on the island, particularly in Maenam. Boat trips to Koh Pangan and Koh Tao are available from Maenam and Ban Rak. The must-see unique rock formations at Hin Ta and Hin Yai, the mummified monk and a visit to the Marine Park are also essential items to put onto anybody’s itinerary. Both swimming pools are chilled to ensure that the water temperature does not become too warm. The local ambient temperatures are such that without this facility, the water in swimming pools can reach temperatures resembling those of a warm bath in the hot season. The development benefits from on-site staff who clean the villa twice a week. They do launder the sheets and towels at an extra, reasonable cost to guests of approximately £1 per kilo. If required, they will also deal with your own laundry. The staff are extremely helpful and will assist in any way required.
