High in the Koh Tao hills sits our unique home - Top Of The Rock Villa. A large, modern, open-plan, 3 bedroom pool villa overlooking Shark Island & Aow Leuk Bay.

Our home has been recently refurbished & includes everything you will need! Built into the rock & surrounded by jungle. Come here for privacy, nature, scenery & adventure. We will welcome you into our home & make your holiday a once-in-a-lifetime experience with the help of our extensive island knowledge. Free taxi on arrival/departure

The space
Top Of The Rock pool villa has been built on to and into large granite boulders and is surrounded by tropical jungle. Our beautiful home was first built in 2006 and was recently refurbished in 2016 and 2019.

The panoramic ocean views from the villa are breathtaking! The height and circular design gives a 270 degree vista allowing guests to lazily watch dive boats around Shark Island, snorkellers in Aow Leuk Bay and day-trippers on long-tail boats. Allowing guests to enjoy breakfast sunrises and cocktail sunsets. At night the view allows you to watch the lantern lights of the fishing boats stretching over the horizon.

As well as offering absolute privacy and serenity, Top of the Rock Villa boasts all the modern amenities needed for a relaxing and enjoyable stay. These include swimming pool, wifi, smart TV, Bluetooth music speakers, board games and a book library.

Measuring approximately 400 square metres there is plenty of living space to relax and chill. Including a large outdoor dining area, sun terraces and two indoor living spaces complete with comfy family sofas. There are three separate dining areas for dining privacy. Complimented by airy interiors with modern decor fitting neatly with the contemporary architecture.

Due to the elevated position of the property with its high ceilings, granite core structure, open-plan design and large windows there is an almost-constant breeze passing through which is perfect at keeping the villa cool and comfortable in the hottest of days. Or take a dip in the pool to properly cool off.

Top of the Rock comes with a fully equipped kitchen that includes a 4-burner gas hob, fridge/freezer, kettle, toaster and cooking utensils. However, if you are one of those people that doesn't wish to do any cooking whilst you are on holiday there are numerous delivery menus provided so you can order from a large variety of different foods delivered to your door, from 06:30 to 22:00. We also provide tea, coffee, milk, sugar and drinking water free of charge.

The master bedroom features a luxurious, king-size mattress and has a substantial en-suite. It also includes a large and uniquely tropical ground floor bathroom. There is no need for air-conditioning but all the bedrooms have wall mounted fans. The kitchen and all living spaces have wall/ceiling fans. There are also extra stand-up, portable fans supplied. Every room from kitchen to toilet has stunning sea views.

Every 2 days our housekeeper will come up to clean the house and swimming pool, re-supply drinking water and remove rubbish. Every 4 days we will provide full housekeeping including a change of bedding and towels. We supply all guests with bath towels, pool towels and shampoo/conditioner/shower gel. If you would like to request more/less frequent housekeeping then please let us know upon check-in.

Other things to note

Location

Ko Tao, Surat Thani, Thailand

Top of the Rock Villa is located 5 minutes taxi ride to Mae Haad, and 10 minutes to Sairee. It’s closest beaches are Aow Leuk and Tanote Bay which are two of the island’s best snorkelling spots. On the property’s land you can access jungle hiking. Walk out the front door and it’s 100m to one of the island’s favourite view-points. If you look carefully from the ferry on your arrival the villa is easily spotted high in the hills of south Koh Tao. It is so high you will be able to view the entire southern half of the island and beyond to all neighbouring islands and the mainland (FYI: a local refuse point is also visible).

This is a great place to stay if you wish to be away from the 'backpacker' scene and the noise of the beach bars.
