These are the most common or frequently asked questions from almost 90,000 tourists who have actually booked and stayed in a villa featured in Villa Finder. One, a few, most or, perhaps, even all of these questions may just be in your mind right now.

Our guarantees of best price and quality

How do you select the villas in Samui?

There are simply hundreds villas all over Koh Samui. However, not all of these villas make it to our websites. For a villa to be featured, it has to adhere to a set of criteria. First, the villa has to offer world-class accommodations and amenities. Second, these accommodations and amenities have to be well maintained. Third, the area where the villa is located has to be generally quiet. There shouldn’t be any kind of activity that will disturb the peace. To determine if a villa consistently meets these criteria, site inspectors do oculars of the villa itself and its location – before and even after the villa has been featured in our websites.

Do you really inspect all villas?

We will never compromise on quality. That’s why visits are done regularly so that we get first hand assessments on the present condition of these villas.

How do you guarantee the quality?

Admittedly, we’ve set the bar quite high – nothing less than world class. After all, our customers come from all over the globe. That’s why we’ve come up with a checklist that reflects truly discriminating standards and tastes. Each and every villa we inspect is measured against this checklist.

How can you guarantee the best price?

We deal directly and work closely with the owners of these villas to come up with the best or value-for-money pricing possible. If, however, you find that a villa you’re looking at and interested in booking has a lower price in another website, call our attention and the difference in price will be refunded.

How come there is no service fee? How do you make money?

By featuring the villas in our websites, we attract tourists who will rent these villas. For this service, we are paid by the owners – directly. This kind of arrangement also extends an extra benefit to customers – no booking fees!

Booking process

Can I get some help to decide on my holiday and villa?

Absolutely! For starters, you can check out our dedicated travel blog. If you need immediate interaction, our villa consultants are standing by and will be more than glad to answer your questions seven days a week. During your stay, the villa concierge can arrange for you a chef, a babysitter, a spa therapist and a chauffeur-driven car, among others. Truly, the rule is to simply ask – and it will be given.

I am not ready to confirm, can I simply enquire and place an option on a villa?

If you can’t decide which villa to book, you can place an option for each of the villas you’re interested in. Simply fill out the request form on the villa page with your name, contact details and travel dates. Placing an option is free of charge and no credit card details are required.

What are the payment terms?

To book your chosen villa, we require an initial deposit amounting to 50% of the total rent. The other 50% can be paid 60 days before your check-in date.

What is the cancellation policy?

As a matter of policy, deposits are non-refundable unless stated otherwise. However, if, for some reason, you really need to cancel your booking, let us know immediately and we will try to ask the owner for a refund. However, refunds incur an administration fee of US$200.

If you’re paying in a currency other than US Dollars, the total amount will be based on the prevailing daily exchange rate of the partner-bank you will be remitting to.

How do I know that you are trustworthy?

It’s been said that you’ll know someone by the company he keeps. Well, we’ve forged successful partnerships with companies such as Air France, Emirates, Maybank, OCBC and UOB – just to name a few.

Do you really plant a tree for each and every booking made on the website?

Arrival and stay

How do I find the villa? Can you arrange my airport transfer? Is it included?

From the very start to the finish of your journey – from your initial inquiry to your departure from the villa – your assigned travel consultant and concierge will be looking after your every need. We can arrange an airport pick up and transfer to your villa. Although, you can get there yourself via taxi cab since you will be provided with the villa’s address as well as the manager’s phone number, but to avoid any inconvenience, we suggest that you allow us to arrange a pick up and transfer.

Daily complimentary breakfast is commonly included in most villas. Although there are villas with complimentary breakfast only on the first day, still a few villas will charge separately for breakfast. Scroll down to the bottom of your villa’s page and see which type of breakfast is offered.

What if I want to arrange activities during my stay? What do you recommend I do in Samui?

We want you to have a wonderful time while you’re in Koh Samui. Would you prefer Koh Samui’s charming Bo Phut Beach with its Big Buddha and other iconic landmarks? Or the upbeat night life of Chaweng Beach? Or the white sands of Choeng Mon? What about the serene stretch of Mae Nam Beach? The seclusion of Bang Po Beach? Will it be the dreamy west or the slow-paced south? Our travel blog will give you an idea on where to go, eat and shop. As well, our travel consultants and concierges will be happy to share with you the many fun possibilities.

What if I need help during my stay? What if the villa is not as described? What if something doesn't work? Do you have a team on the ground?
