Loved the three bedrooms that allowed the adults to lounge outside in the evening with no risk of disturbing the little one sleeping upstairs.
The pool and amenities were awesome. Washing machine and dish washer really makes life easy!
Location-wise the villa is located in a quiet road with very little traffic and noise.
Only minor issues with taxi drivers and food delivery guys having problems finding the place, but the friendly staff that are only a phone call away provided directions when necessary. The villa has a pre-paid local mobile phone for you to use. We did not use it, but a nice touch.
The location is a bit off the beaten path, so finding a place to eat is a bit difficult. Nearby restaurants were all closed during our stay, but we were informed that few tourists were visiting Koh Samui while we were there, so this might be why.
No breakfast to be found nearby, so you will have to cook this yourself unless you want to travel 10-15 mins by taxi to find some decent (western) food. Personally, I can't eat Asian for breakfast. :-)
We had to pay approx 2200 baht for electricity. This was for 5 days with aircon use in all three bedrooms at night, so take note of this.
4th visit to Villa Catherine, already planning the 5th! Love it more each time I stay. Would recommend to anyone, a lovely well looked after villa with so much to offer.
4th time staying at Villa Catherine and every bit as enjoyable as the 1st time, never fails to guarantee an excellent stay. The only place I would stay in Samui, already planning trip number 5!
Well designed and appointed for families and/or a group of friends - the three bedrooms, each with their own bathroom, are serviced by the many, and very comfortable, communal areas, and the villa as a whole is well kitted out. The space, pool, landscaping, facilities, cleanliness and the location are top notch.
The villa is a mere approx. 300m off the beaten track, and we had a lovely sense of peace and quiet while at the same time being within easy reach of the numerous bars and eating establishments, and the many delights Koh Samui has to offer.
The owner and caretakers couldn't have been more helpful and unobtrusive - the welcome, advice, local recommendations and near to close checking in from Peter were particularly appreciated.
We had a great time at Villa Catherine and thoroughly recommend it.
