About us, our guide book, and our house
Hello! We’re a brother-sister pair – farangs (foreigners) from cold climates. Koh Samui won our family over on our first visit in 2003 and, since then, we’ve been lucky to return often with our parents, relatives, partners and friends – for all sorts of big and little occasions. We hope this means a wide range of ideas and suggestions, helpful to whatever your holiday might involve.
Last year – in what seemed a great idea halfway through some Samui rum – we decided to write the Koh Samui guide book we wished we’d had on our first few visits – the times when we packed the wrong things, got badly sunburned and wondered about everything from ‘is the water safe to drink’, to ‘where can I buy champagne?’. We’re confident it will make your holiday even better – our scientific research left no plate of Pad Thai behind. Please get in touch if you have any questions.
Since 2008 we’ve used our site to provide recommendations, helpful tips and honest advice about our Koh Samui favourites. Samui changes quickly, but we try to keep everything up-to-date.
Unless stated otherwise, all the photos on the site are our own. We diligently give other photographers credit and ask, if you’d like to share our photos, that you do the same.
‘Koh Samui Sunset’ denotes our favourite feature of the house. Our header photo, the orange sunset above, is the house’s ‘happy hour’ view (details beneath).
With a completion date pushed back, back, back – we’ve given up on stating an opening date for our family’s Samui rental house. “Sooner than later”, how about that? Suffice to say – in the coming year or two, we’ll have a sunset-view rental house available to sleep up to 10 people. If that’s of interest, we provide details below and future booking details here.
Otherwise, hello, welcome and thanks for visiting! Please join our RSS feed or receive updates by email. If you, or someone you know, have Koh Samui in sight – definitely check out our Koh Samui Guide (it downloads instantly!).
