Villa Sapphire is a tropical style, one bed Romantic Villa located on hillside land, with stunning panoramic ocean views of the mainland and surrounding islands. The Villa has an infinity edge private pool, and an exotic and creative, open plan Living area with Jacuzzi that sits in complete harmony with the surrounding nature. You can also enjoy a movie under the stars here on the projector screen. The Villa provides an ideal romantic setting for a couple and is very popular for honeymoons.
Villa Sapphire is situated on a 22 acre area of ocean view hillside land known as Sitara Retreat, which provides 24 hour security. Sitara is an exclusive private residency, surrounded by nature, located in a superb setting with outstanding panoramic ocean views.

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.
