Villa Crystal is a spacious and stunning 1-Bed Villa located on hillside land with magnificent panoramic ocean views of Gulf of Thailand and surrounding islands. One of 3 villas, set on magnificent parcel of land, covered in granite boulders and swaying coconut trees.

The Villa provides an exquisite, romantic setting for a couple and offers a spectacular 180 degree panoramic view of the shimmering turquoise ocean.

Villa Crystal has a beautiful, large infinity pool, together with Lotus Pond.

The space

Villa Crystal is situated on 22 acre area of ocean view hillside land known as Sitara Retreat, which provides 24 hour security.

The Villa has a large, infinity pool, with sun beds, parasol, Lotus pond with colourful fish; and turtles who you can see basking on the rocks. This peaceful setting is surrounded by wonderful lush greenery, swaying palm trees and outstanding ocean views. The Villa provides an exquisite and magical atmosphere.

With its magnificent 180 degree panoramic view of the shimmering turquoise ocean, Villa Crystal is uniquely perched amongst, around and against the ancient granite boulders, which are a special feature throughout the Villa.

Sitara is an exclusive private residency, surrounded by nature, and with outstanding natural beauty. The Villa is in the unspoiled south of the island which largely remains unaffected by over-development that unfortunately blights the north.

There is a stunning, very spacious, Living area with 3 balconies and fabulous ocean views throughout the Villa.

A modern, fully-equipped western-style fitted kitchen, with a dishwasher, complete with breakfast bar. The villa also provides a washing machine with drying area on the lower section.

From the balcony, steps lead you down to the spacious Bedroom en-suite with king size bed, fitted wardrobes, dressing table, a comfortable sofa bed, air conditioning and fan. From the bedroom sliding doors lead you out onto the balcony, with its own small colourful garden. Here you can sit, relax and enjoy the lush green tropical setting.

The en-suite bathroom consists of bath tub, shower, vanity unit and wc, and has been created using the classic touch and feel of Terrazzo to give a cool and sophisticated look.

The unique feature of the bedroom and bathroom is the stunning look and imaginative display of the beautifully created rock formation.

A gas barbecue is also provided where you can cook freshly caught fish or meat from the local market, and enjoy a romantic dinner with the backdrop of the twinkling lights of the fishing boats out at sea.

The very spacious Villa accommodates 2 people, with an idyllic romantic setting.

Guest access

Guests have complete private access to the whole Villa throughout with their own private large infinity edge salt water swimming pool, where you can step out from the living room into the large pool with superb ocean views, decking and sun beds to relax and enjoy the beautiful tropical surroundings.

Interaction with guests

Complimentary pick-up for guests from the airport, ferry terminal or your accomodation on the Island to Villa Crystal is provided and a return journey on departure (one in each direction).

The guests have sole private use of the Villa where I am on hand should they need help or advice.

I am proud to say that I am one of the few hosts who has earned Airnbnb Superhost status for the past 12 months.

Davids place was very beautiful! It is definitely in a secluded part of the island so if you are looking for peace, serenity and quietness, then this is the spot! I stayed there alone and David did a very good job at making me feel safe and comfortable. All the nearby restaurants are very small local spots, so if you're looking for something more trendy or busy, then this may not be the spot for you. If you want to relax and make your own food, there is a market on the way so I would 100% recommend renting a car for your stay because a motorbike won't cut it. I was going to use a motorbike until we saw a horrible crash happen before our eyes as we turned a corner! The locals drive unsafe with the bikes so be aware! Dave was great, his house was awesome!

We stayed in the villa for 1 week and had a great time. It is very clean and much larger than in photos! Dave was an amazing host - letting us have a late complementary check out and helping us with the car we rented from him when we had a minor accident. I would highly recommend staying here!

David's place is special. The views and ambience are so nice that you won't want to leave, even to the very nice beach nearby. David was a great communicator in helping me to arrange on behalf of family members on honeymoon. They loved their stay and highly recommend it. A car or scooter is recommended to get around, and David is helpful in arranging for transport as well. Thanks David.

WOW! Where do I begin?! Dave was the best host; he was waiting for us at the airport and even waited longer for our delayed luggage. He assisted us with a rental car and pointed out all the essential spots along the way. Nung's friendly smile greeted us at the villa and both her and Dave gave us our privacy yet were available within seconds to answer any questions. We had many planned excursions, but couldn't leave the villa! The place is immaculately clean, especially the pool! And the view.... we truly dreaded leaving! This one is a winner! If you're looking for a place to stay, look no further!

I've used Airbnb many times and this was by far the BEST stay I've ever had. Dave's Villa is absoutely incredible you won't even want to leave, guaranteed. The sunset from the Villa was amazing we rushed to it every night once the sun was setting. It is also very private and relaxing. Being that it has an incredible view I will add that it is up a very steep hill. I recommend a car or motor bike. Thanks again Dave my boyfriend & I will be back!

My wife and I stayed at the villa for 5 days February and it was amazing! It was very peaceful and spacious. It was a great place to relax and just enjoy some pool time. David was a great host. Always helpful and quick to respond. We will be sure to stay here again next time we're in Koh Samui.

David User ProfileDavid is a superhost.

I located to Koh Samui in April 2005, having moved from Cirencester in the UK. I first travelled to the Far East first in 1990, and since had a growing desire to live in Thailand. Inspired by the opportunity for business I quickly decided on Koh Samui. I had my own Flooring business when living in Cirencester. I was also extensively involved in property development and property rental, having helped create, build and convert a large number of various style properties in Cirencester. However, for a long time a big change appealed to me and a fresh new challenge!

Coming to Koh Samui, I first created 3 properties; Palm View, Butterfly Garden and Hideaway Villa and placed them into the holiday rental business. A few years later we completed three more villas on the beautiful estate known as Sitara Retreat, named Villa's Crystal, Emerald and Sapphire. We also manage Villa Serendipity which belongs to one of our neighbours who resides in Hong Kong. In early 2017 we created a brand new villa called Villa Amber of which we are very proud, and have now included this very tropical villa onto our rental business.

Living in the south of the island, I love being surrounded by the beautiful tropical nature, enjoying delicious food (probably too much) and experiencing the wonderful climate. When having free time I enjoy swimming and eating out locally in the many varied open air restaurants. I do a lot of driving and whilst travelling around the island I feel privileged and happy to be living in such a beautiful and natural environment.

I have only been back to Europe twice in the 15 years of living on Koh Samui, and that was for one day in Milan and three days in Madrid....watching my beloved Spurs in the Champions League !!!!

I am privileged to have held Superhost status with Airbnb for the past 12 months and informed that am one of the few hosts to achieve this.
