Thailand's popular holiday destination, Koh Samui, is one of the world's most beautiful islands. Blessed with white sand beaches, crystal blue waters, a rugged interior and great weather 365 days of the year, the island attracts flocks of visitors from near and far and has gained a reputation as one of the most appealing place to escape the stresses of daily life.
Because so many people choose the island for a holiday, it has developed a healthy market for rental properties to complement the resorts and hotels, giving guests a large amount of choice in terms of what kind of property they would like to stay in and what location on the island they might prefer.
When it comes to location, Koh Samui has quite a variety of spots to choose from. Although modest in size, the choice of beaches is remarkably large with those on the north and souther coasts of the island offering a very different feel and atmosphere, even appearance than beaches on east and west side.
The most popular beach on the island is Chaweng, where much of the development of the last 10 years has taken place. Today this area offers a range of hotels with luxurious condominium and villa developments close by, plus some of the island's top-notch shopping and dining options.
The northern part of the island is much more pristine and laid back than the busy west coast. The vibrant, bustling nightlife of Chaweng is for the most part absent here, and visitors will find far fewer people about. The southern beaches have historically been much more isolated. In fact getting to them was very difficult before the completion of the island's ring road, but it is much easier now. As a result this part of the island is popular with those seeking a trip filled with rest and relaxation.
Despite the lack of development in some places, no part of the island has not missed out on a boom in understated but elegant rental properties, including some awe-inspiring villas. Whatever part of the island you choose to stay in, properties rented through a professional agency like Horizon Homes are guaranteed to be excellent.
Villas are a very popular choice, and offer not only fine accommodation but also an unbeatable sense of privacy and seclusion. They also feature state-of-the-art amenities to enhance the feeling of luxury, including private pools and Jacuzzis, often also brand new entertainment systems, home security for peace of mind and terraces offering stunning views of the Gulf of Thailand.
Besides villas, visitors can also rent out one of Koh Samui's luxurious condos and renting property on the island is a fantastic experience and a great way to fully enjoy everything that this tropical paradise has to offer. Guests can be sure that they will find exactly what they are looking for in terms of style, size and location, and all at a great price.
