This place was really great as was Villa Sapphire another of Dave's villas that we stayed at, the design, the décor and the integration with nature and the topical island environment was spot on. As previously mentioned the photo's are good but the real thing is better. Dave picked us up, sorted out moped hire, advised us etc etc everything really easy and good - quality service.

The villa is a perfect retreat. Lovely lay-out with the open air living area. Pool amazing after a sticky day. Friendly fish and turtles in your very own pond. David is a really nice guy and picked us up to depart for our return very early in the morning when I'm sure he would have liked to have stayed in bed! Thank you David, we will definately be returning.

We stayed for a period of 12 days over Christmas. The owner of the villa (David) personally picked us up at the airport and took us to the villa which was a 30 min drive. He's a great guy and was always available when we needed something.
The place looks exactly like on the pictures. Very spacious and nice, beautiful pool, great TV with lots of English channels and good sound system. The only concern we had was the bed which we found a little bit too hard for us.
I particularly liked the fact of the living room being surrounded by a pond with fish and turtles in it. We got to feed them every day and the smallest turtle climbed out to sit in the sun for a few hours every single day which was very cute.
The outside area around the pool is also gorgeous.
We were very unlucky with the weather as we had 10 days of rain (in the dry season!!). Unfortunately I have to say that there is little to see on this island in rainy weather. Most activities are outdoors or boattrips. No great temples to visit like you would find on the main land. You can basically drive around the island in less than 2 hours.
Because of the bad weather we eventually hired a car from David, he gave us a very good deal with that as well.
The location of the villa is very nice but also very quiet. There are two very good and cheap restaurants 50 meters away and a nice beach bar about 5 min walk but that's about it.
The Tiger zoo and butterlfy garden are each about 10 min walking as well.
I would recommend hiring a car as this enables you to get around more, go into town, supermarket etc and also enjoy the peacefullness of the Villa.
All in all a great place to stay, I definitely recommend it !!

If you want to do some serious chilling out and not have to venture far from your own pool and villa, then bookthis. There are lovely restaurants and bars on your doorstep and after a taxi round the island you have seen it all! Fantastic villa and location for total relaxation.

We loved the house and the service. Very much and nice details. Awesome livingroom, beautifull pool and large kitchen. Nice restaurants in the village. Just walk 6min to the butterfly hotel and get a daypass (250/pax) for their beach and pool which you can fully reimburse at their beach restaurant
Relaxing and Independant
Left on 08/07/2011 for a stay in June 2011 | Kate D
The Hideaway Villa was relaxing in its surroundings and gave us an independance to do what we wanted when we wanted. The location was great and it was good to be off the main tourist area, but close enough to see everything.
A private place to relax and unwind
Left on 03/06/2011 for a stay in February 2011 | Display Name
Hideaway Villa is only 400 yards or so from the sea. It is completely enclosed so that it has total privacy. It is located in the south east corner of Koh Samui, the quietest aras being the south and west coasts. It would be a good idea to rent a car or a motorbike so that you can visit the beaches on the west coast, go up into the hills and do the shopping. There are two perfectly acceptable restaurants within yards of the villa, the Baracuda and the Fishermen's outlet, both of which are excellent value. The best restaurant on the island is probably the Five Islands on the west coast.
The villa itself met expectations. It will accommodate two couples but is ideal for one. The pool is a good size. There was a problem with the cleaning system during part of out stay but this did not detract significantly from our enjoyment of it.
The kitchen is obviously designed by a man. While it has a number of cupboards, it has no drawers and is not particularly well equipped for cooking. This will not be a great disadvantage to most people, however, when it is so hot and there are two good restaurants just around the corner. It is certainly true to say that the owner did try very hard to meet any request that we made.
The bedrooms are air-conditioned and there is plenty of hanging space. Our bed was hard but this is clearly preferable to a soft bed in such a hot climate.
The shower room works well although it could do with a bit of ventilation. The towels and bed linen are changed every three days which is excellent in this climate.
The overall design of the villa works well. There are basically four areas: bedroom/shower/bathroom, kitchen, outdoor sitting/eating area with TV and pool area. The owner has good taste and the two outside areas are beautifully lit.
The owner looked after us well and, overall, this villa is good value for money if you are looking for privacy and a bit of peace and quiet.
Exactly as we'd hoped for and more!

We choose to stay at Hideaway Villa because of its proximity to our friend's wedding location, it was the best decision we made. The property is just a beautiful as the images on the Peaceful Villas website and does not disappoint. There was more than enough space for my partner and I, laying by the pool in the afternoon's was so relaxing. There is even turtles in the koi fish pond that surrounds the outdoor area. An outdoor tele with satellite TV was my partner's dream come true!
David and his assistant were so helpful during our stay and ensured we had nothing to worry about, thank you for a great holiday (it was too short)!
Fantastic Unique Villa
Left on 02/13/2011 for a stay in January 2011 | Isabel
We booked this Villa to celebrate my husbands' 70th birthday. We have travelled exstensively throughout our 46 years of marraige, but have never found anywhere as unique as this. The reason being, your living area is open, you feel your outside all the time. We had a lot of heavy, heavy rain while we were there, and this room being open was just ideal, undercover but still outside. Loved feeding the fish everyday, which swam round the whole of house.
From booking this Villa David was very helpful, answering the many questions we had. On arrival we asked for an ironing board, and noticed one of the lounge beds was burst, and the next day, board and 2 new beds were delivered. If you are looking for a relaxing holiday, this is the place. We used the Barracuda restaurant, just round the corner, lovely staff, meals, got a few carry outs, they did all our laundry, got us taxis and would also rent out scooters. Everything is so laid back here.

We stayed here for 6 days during the end of November 2010 for our wedding anniversary. The villa was neat, tidy and very romantic and has a close proximity to some very good restaurants. David and his staff were exceptional and couldn't do enough for us! In all a remarkable place run by remarkable people!

Really enjoyed the stay in the hideaway villa. My wife and I chose to stay here as it would be much cheaper way of having our own pool, and more than just a room.
We enjoyed the luxury of not having anyone around - apart from cleaners on set days. The villa has everything you need to make your stay comfortable.
We really enjoyed relaxing in the living area with the large TV and surround sound system - buying good movies in Thailand is very cheap! So it was a great way to unwind and often sit the real hot part of the day out.
They provided a scooter cheaper than everywhere else - which is the best way to get around cheaply. In total its usage and fuel cost us £40. 2000 Baht. That was for 10 days.
The local amenities include a couple of restaurants and a bar - all within walking distance (2mins). One restaurant - The Fishermans Net - suited us perfectly. A good ambience, friendly staff etc.
Thailand beds are pretty firm (I remember this from 5 years ago) and it's the same here. A cheap massage sorts that out though!
The location is away from all the busy areas - we enjoyed scooting up to the main beach area - Chaweng (25mins) and Lamai (15mins), we only did this a couple of times, but the views are beautiful and there are lots of interesting shops/stalls and coves/beaches on route.
I really recommend the stay if you wish to completely relax, don't want to be bothered by hotel staff or other people a foot away from your sunbed! If we were to come back to Koh Samui, we wouldn't think twice about booking up here again. Its great.
Lovely spacious accommodation in a beautiful location

We had a wonderful stay at the Hideaway Villa which provided lovely accommodation in a wonderful, peaceful location. We were very impressed by the fact that the owner picked us personally to bring us to the apartment (including a useful stop at the supermarket) and dropped us off at the airport after our stay. The apartment was very spacious, clean with good amenities, great bed and a touch of luxury with the outside lounge, large TV and brilliant pool. Wonderful quiet beach practically on the doorstep was perfect for a relaxing stroll and paddle. Two great local restaurants provided very tasty food with fast and friendly service at an amazingly cheap price. In summary if you want a place to get away from it all with the comforts of home and more then look no further than Hideaway Villa and its friendly owner and staff.

Left on 08/26/2010 for a stay in November 2009 | Zoe
I found this place on the internet and even though the pictures made it look fabulous I was unsure whether it would really meet that standard (a usual concern when booking on the net). However, we were far from disappointed! I have stayed in some quality places and I can honestly say that this is up there with the best!
It is in a secluded part of the island, which was fine as relaxation was high on our agenda. Bits of the island have been ruined by tourism but this area was perfect. The beach, only 100m away, has barely seen a footprint, but does have a great 'bamboo hut' bar with cold beer. There are two restaurants close to the villa and they offer reasonably priced and great food. You can easily rent a moped from one of these places for only a few quid a day to get around the island.
The villa itself is lovely. Secluded, clean, finished to a high standard and perfect for a romanic break.
I have been recommending this place to everyone I speak to looking for a holiday of this nature. I am not one to go back to somewhere I have been but would really consider heading back to this place! It is a fabulous find!

My wife and I stayed for 3 weeks in November 2009. We were met at the airport and taken directly to Villa. Villa is beautiful, with secluded private pool area, perfect for relaxing getaway. There are 3/4 lovely restaurants in walking distance from the Villa. We hired a moped (very cheap) which we used to explore the Island and travel to other Restaurants in the evenings when we fancied a change. David the owner could not have been more helpful, he popped in during holiday just to check we were happy with everything. Villa is very comfortable and has all the mod cons you will need. We had a wonderful holiday in this Villa and would recommend it to anyone.
We loved Thailand in our own private villa!!!

We stayed at the villa for 1 week and it really was not long enough!!! We are always talking about our experience at the villa and in Thailand in general, we rave to all our friends and have added pictures of villa into out holiday snaps album on facebook!!! We are planning a return trip to the villa as we loved it that much. It is so peaceful in the village where the villa is located and all the locals are really friendly, we loved to lazy on the beach and have a few drinks at the beach bar and eat out in the local restaurants nearby. We also took a taxi to Lami one evening which was really nice we just asked at the restaurant round the corner and one of the employees took us for a small fee. Thailand is really good value for money and you can pick up some really good bargains!!! David was really friendly and helpful, I would really recommend staying in on e of David's villas instead of a hotel. At the villa you have your own private pool with an outdoor lounge it really is the best option if you want a relaxed chilled and out holiday.

This place is as advertised. It is very nice, new, really nice outdoor spaces, including outdoor living room and pool. It's the only place I've been in Thailand where I didn't have to turn the airconditioner on even at night for sleeping. Also, as advertised, it is a little bit remote, and not much activity in the immediate vicinity.
