“If I could keep a second home as an escape to paradise, this would be it”
Reviewed 7 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Already planning a return trip back. :)

A beautiful house - we had a very relaxed trip this time. Enjoyed the pool, read some books, drank some champagne, enjoyed the wonderful movie selection and had some of the best thai food I've ever had (and I've had a lot) from the cook and driver on staff. Next time, I think we'll share our discovery with some more friends, take advantage of the amazing sound system, great kitchen and grill, billiards table, and throw our own version of what I imagine adult spring break should look like. :)

Gorgeous place, secluded enough to relax or blast the stereo, a quick drive to great tiny beachfront restaurants, the driver and house chef were amazing and welcoming, made themselves available, but were conscientious about when they came in to cook and/or clean. We'll be back - and I plan on convincing them to let me help them cook so I can maybe take away some tips on how to make thai food at home.

Definitely check it out if you get the opportunity.

“u wont beat villa velks!!!”
Reviewed 5 November 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed at Villa Velks during August 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location was great with the most beautiful views, which you can enjoy whilst you eat your evening meal in the sala enjoying the sunset. The villa was incredibly spacious, clean and comfortable, and was perfect for all ages.
Our holiday wouldn't have been the same without the great help and care from Tow and Pray. Tow provided the transport anytime we wanted, showing us the local town and suggesting some of the local Thai places to eat. Whilst Pray took care of the villa, providing anything we needed as well as cooking meals. Definitely recommend trying some of Pray's Thai food, it was delicious!
Overall, we had an amazing stay in Villa Velks and can't wait to go back!

“We'll be back!!”
Reviewed 4 November 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Villa Velks was the perfect accommodation for meeting up with old friends from around the world. No longer single travellers but families with young children! Tau and Plair were the most wonderful hosts. Consistently friendly, helpful and ever patient.
The villa has ample accommodation that is simply but tastefully decorated. The swimming pool is a welcome reprieve after a full day at the beach and the view over the island is quite something to behold!
The villa has all mod cons and entertainment for all ages.
All in all a fabulous stay and we hope to be back in the near future!!

“Perfect for a Big Group of Friends”
Reviewed 3 November 2014 for a stay in August 2014

I have stayed in a lot of places in a lot of different countries, but this place really is special. The house is huge- enough room for 4 families, each with two young children, not too feel squashed. The pool, the view, the outdoor seating areas are beautiful. Tao and his wife looked after us so well, yet are not at all imposing. I really cannot fault this place. Thank you so much! Now to start saving to visit again...
