“Paradise”

We had an amazing time in Koh Tao. The villa was stunning with breathtaking views. We travelled with our children aged 16, 12 and 6 and we all had a fantastic time, snorkelling, swimming and travelling around the island on taxi boat. The Thai people were incredibly friendly and we would definitely return.

“Nice but not perfect.”

The location and cleanliness are the two primary reasons we feel we can recommend this property. Unfortunately we did have a hickup and that takes one star away.

We rented this home for two reasons, we didn't want to be in the middle of party town, it fits that block perfectly. The location is just far away from Sairee Beach town to make it easily walkable. We never once used a taxi, nor did we rent a moped. But we are big time hikers, so that may not work for others.

The second reason was because we desired a quiet place to work from, online. Sadly we can only take working vacations, so full internet is absolutely a must. This property's internet was non existent for us, and we discovered based on previous texts, from the cell phone provided to us from Nikki, others too. Had we known that when we arrived, we would have immediately purchased internet access from the provider on the island, that has very good wifi coverage on the island. We ended up having to go into one of the towns many restaurants to work, which took additional time away from our trekking.

They provided us a clean, as in cleaned everyday, home. The size was perfect and the bed is comfortable. It's a great quiet location. They provided us transportation to and from the ferry. This is a good touch, because taxis were in short supply during ferry departure times, we saw a lot of folks walking that couldn't get a taxi.

This property could easily accommodate two couples, at a reasonable price.

“Amazing view”

We stayed December 26th 2013-January 4th 2014. If we come to Koh Tao again this is our first option.

Yes it's true what they say; the view is amazing. You have Koh Nang Yuan right in front of you, a picture often seen on photographs advertising Koh Tao.

We were 8 people and the villa was just perfect for us. Enough space and good beds to sleep in.

We did not want a hotel since we wanted to cook ourselves. Mostly we did just that but you could also order home delivery or eat out of course. Many good restaurants and are just minutes away with the motorcycle. A motorcycle is handy here, you can rent one at the bottom of the hill. The hill is very steep, I walked down and up again just for the exercise.

As I said, the villa is just minutes away from the huzzle and buzzle but up there you could not hear a thing even at new year's eve, so quiet.

Everything went well during the vacation, we were taken great care of daily by Nan (the maid, very nice lady) and the Pontus (the owner) also called to ask if everything is well. Practical arrangements before the trip also went well.

All and all a very good arrangement for a crowd like ours and cheaper than a hotel.

“Beautiful view, swimming pool and very nice villa to stay with or without children”
Reviewed 5 May 2014 for a stay in January 2013

We spent a wonderful Christmas at Yoyo villa. We were three families with young children. We loved it and we are going to rent again the villa this next Christmas. The children too had a wonderful time and still talk about yoyo villa. The owners even organized the villa to be best suited for young children (for eg. by putting barriers for children). You need a transport for the beach and restaurants, but it's very easy to organize and the villa is so quite with such a beautiful view, that's we also enjoyed spending some time there by the beautiful pool. Excellent vacations and a very good and helpful service when we were there.

“Fantastic house”
Reviewed 15 February 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We spent 8 days at 'yo yo' house.....absolutely fantastic. Well designed house, great pool and deck. The view is really something special....amazing sunsets, wide open view of the ocean, and a a great look at nearby Koh Nang Yuan. Honestly, you could stay at the house all day and be content. The property manager, Nan, was great, offering help for tours, moped rentals, etc. Local cellphones provided during our stay were also quite nice. Should be noted that the house was on top of a very steep hill...less than 10 minutes to Sairee Beach on foot, but a concentrated effort back up. With taxis or moped, no problem. Along with the amazing view, the elevation provided relief from heat and bugs. Cool breezes on top, and no need for mosquito nets. Overall, truly a special place, highly recommended.
