Overview

About the property

2 bedroom villa, sleeps 4, 5 minutes from the stunning Tong Nai Pan Noi beach

"The Hideaway" villa is situated on an waterfront cliff top giving stunning panoramic views across the Gulf of Thailand. In daylight, relaxing by the secluded pool you can watch the small ferry boats making their way round the island, at night the lights of the fishing boats bobbing around on the sea provide a constantly changing picture. The villa has two king-sized bedrooms, both with en-suite bathrooms. The large living and dining area incorporating a stylish well equipped kitchen extends to the full height of the house giving a wonderful spacious feel to the whole area. Folding glass doors open up the entire length of the villa onto the outside wooden deck area, creating a large open plan inside/outside living space. The private and secluded infinity pool adjacent to the deck is positioned to take advantage of the stunning views.

About Karl Hudspeth

Property developer from Nottingham, England.

Why Karl Hudspeth chose Surat Thani

Having fallen in love with the stunning beach of Tong Nai Pan Noi some years before, I was lucky enough to realise a goal of mine to build this villa.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We flew into Koh Samui and took the Seatran Discovery ferry to Ko Phangan. Roman was waiting for us on the pier at Ko Phangan and took us to pick up a pre-arranged 4x4 rental car (which was absolutely necessary for coming and going from "Hideaway villa" up in the mountains). From the pier to the villa it takes about 30mins by car. The villa is AMAZING with breathtaking views of the sea. The villa was very private on a seaside cliff giving you a great feeling of seclusion. I cannot fully describe how amazing the views are...you have to see for yourself. It is perfect for a family or group of 4-5 people. It was very clean and had two king size beds in two bedrooms and a large L shaped couch in the living room. When we checked in there was quite a bit of rain and the power was out...but there is a backup generator behind the villa which kept us comfy with all our power needs satisfied. Soon after, the power was restored and we no longer had to use the generator. There are two beach towns near the villa and I would recommend Pen's restaurant at Thong Nai Pan Yai beach (Yai "big beach"). The restaurant at Santiya Resort is the closest dining out option and was great for a meal. Back at the villa there is a cute Thai couple that come daily to clean and maintain the property. You can also request them to cook a traditional lunch or dinner Thai meal for you at the villa. We did this and it was great fun having a Thai cooking lesson and having some of the best Thai food on our trip. We had green curry, Pad Kee Pow, fried chicken and Cashew delicious! The day we checked out Roman was kind enough to escort us from the villa to the rental car place and then back to the Seatran Discovery ferry pier. We were very sad to leave beautiful Koh Phangan and the Hideaway Villa. I highly recommend this villa and we will definitely be back.

lack of maintenance, in the middle of nowhere

  • 2 of 5

The house is nice, with a beautiful view, but no maintenance at all.Wardrobes doors dirty and broken. Floor board in one bedroom were moving and making lots of noises. As soon as there is a little rain , you are left with no electricity and water.

If you have little children do not go there. Balcony with no rail and infinity pool(really small, nothing like the photos) dangerous for children .

But the most important thing and what really, really upset my husband and I, is that the house is on a hill in the middle of nowhere and I really mean in the middle of nowhere.

The owner Roman made sure in all the emails we exchanged before renting the villa, no to mentioned EVER that a car was a MUST have and there is no taxi passing by, nothing. Every time you have to go somewhere, you need to call a taxi and for a 5 minute ride they charge you a fortune.

We had no choice but to rent a car and not even a normal car . We had to get a 4 w drive because a normal car would not make it up the hill and this was quite expensive.

Also one night we have been left for 4 hours with no electricity or any water and the owner did not bother to help us or to apologize the day after.

I would not recommend to anyone this house. If you think it's a cool cheap option....rethink. You are going to spend lots of money just in transport and the owner once he gets his money....he's well gone!

Lovely house with great view

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely few days here; the arrangements and pick up from the ferry were all very smooth and the house is lovely with lots of light and a great view. Roman arranged jeep hire for us which worked out really well and gave us lots of flexibility-the road is really too bad for bikes to be used comfortably. The closest village is a really nice place with some good places to eat. We would definitely come back to this house again

Amazing *****

  • 5 of 5

The property is simply stunning! Everything you need is there. Roman was informative and let us know everything we needed to know. , the onsite staff, Nuan and Jaron are non intrusive and very helpful. Nuan cooked for us one evening and the food was beautiful. Will definitely visit again for a longer amount f time.

Could not have had a better time at Baan Ley Lay

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time we had ever rented a house overseas. We were a little apprehensive. What a joy. We loved our 15 days. We were in Thailand for 5 weeks and the time we spent at Baan Ley Lay was the most enjoyable. We were in five star resorts for the rest of the trip but enjoyed the time in Koh Phangan the most. You can't go past the solitude and privacy. Hiring a car was easy with the help of Karl and Roman and this gave you the freedom to explore the island and get to town and the beach. We enjoyed being able to cook our own food when we wanted but there are great restaurants in town. We enjoyed a restaurant called "Better Than Sex" Pong has great food. Thanks again to Karl and Roman for making our holiday one to remember. we are hoping to go back again 2016 and this time for a longer stay

Stunning

  • 5 of 5

We knew to expect the "adventurous" road up to the villa, but it's more than worth it. As soon as you enter the villa, you get a real sence to peace and serenity. The perfect place to chill out. Waking up to the sunrise each day was amazing! Locally, just at the bottom of the road, there are excellent bars and restaurants on the beach.

Karl, the owner, was more than helpful with our entire stay and the villa is well kept by a local couple who take care of cleaning and maintenance.

On the last morning, it was a real treat to see monkeys playing in the garden!

Highly recommended especially if you are looking for total relaxation.

Traumhaft

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben den Aufenthalt in der Villa Leh Ley wahnsinnig genossen. Das Haus bietet alles, was für unser Verständnis, zu einem Traumurlaub gehört. Dieser Ausblick, die Ruhe, einfach nur chillen und kein Mensch um uns herum. Ganz wichtig auch, die klimatisierten Zimmer, die ab März/April goldwert sind.

Überhaupt ist alles wunderbar organisiert, Roman holt einen ab, überreicht gleich das Auto am Hafen und bringt einem zum Haus. Täglich wird kurz durchgefegt und die Betten gemacht .

Tipp:

Gaaanz wichtig ... entweder Jeep gleich über Karl bzw. Roman mitbuchen oder laufen, die "Straße" (Holperweg) zum Haus ist mit einem Zweirad wirklich ganz schwierig zu bewältigen. Wir wollten uns das Geld erst sparen aber ich bin echt froh, daß wir auf Karl gehört haben und einen Jeep gemietet haben.

Bei den günstigen Preisen, lohnt es sich wirklich nicht selber zu kochen, unser Favorite war das "Better than Sex".

Wir hatten fast jeden Tag eine Massage im 1. Studio auf der linken Seite (einzige mit Glastüren) in Thong Nai Pan. Ganz toll und klimatisiert. Am Ende unseres Aufenthalts haben wir Trinkgeld gegeben, worüber sie fast in Tränen ausgebrochen sind (waren "nur" 100 Bath/Person).

Fazit:

Wenn wir nochmal nach Koh Phangan gehen, dann definitiv wieder in dieses Haus. We love it!

The Hideaway is situated close to Thong Nai Pan beach, on the idyllic north coast of Koh Phangan, Thailand. This unspoiled corner of the island provides the perfect setting for The Hideaway, nestled amidst the coconut palms and looking out across the Gulf of Thailand.
