The SpaceThe house is a set of two bungalows, 25 meters from the beach of Lipa Noi, in a lush garden, in a tiny residential compound. The whole place is a sort of hide away, super green, super quiet, away from the roads and the noisy tourists spots.
The house is a few minutes driving from Nathon, Ko Samui's administrative capital - which offers plenty of great restaurant and a take at local Thai life. There are a few restaurants and shops at walking distance, but you will need a car or a bike to go around Samui. That can be sorted out on demand, or found easily in nearby Nathon.
The beach is a long stretch of smooth sand along the bay of Lipa Noi. It has very little development, so it is super quiet and gorgeous at sunset. Right in front of the house the water is shallow and super safe. A few hundred meters away along the beach it becomes deeper and it is perfect for swimming.
Here is a bit more information about the house:
The main bungalow offers a living room, and a really nice terrace with a rest chairs and a dining table. A good wifi connection is available, as well as a DVD player with a stack of DVDs. The house has a full kitchen - complete with gas-oven and burners, a juicer, a microwave... It's a terrace kitchen: it is well protected from sun and rain, but you cook in the fresh air. The kitchen is large enough for a good cook, and well equipped with woks and pots: I like cooking, and I think it feels in the kitchen! There are two bedrooms: a master bedroom with a king size bed, and a small bedroom with 2 single beds. Both bedrooms have air conditioning. In the bedroom with single beds, a 3rd bed can be pulled. Mind that it's a bit stretching the capacity and comfort of the house, but it allows to welcome 9 people. The bathroom has a shower and hot water.
The second bungalow offers 2 nicely decorated bedrooms with air conditioning, each with a king size bed, and a nice terrace with a dining table. A good wifi connection is available there too. There is a small outside kitchen on the back of the bungalow, equipped with a refrigerator, gas burners and pots and pans. The bathroom has a shower with hot water.
Both bungalows can be used independently, but they are in the same garden and work perfectly as a large house for a single family or group of up to 8 people.
This is my house when I stay on Samui, so it is like staying at a friend's house: it is not luxurious, but all the comfort is there, and the house is ready to enjoy beach life.
