My girlfriend and I stayed at Stephanie's Moon Cottage in Samui for a week in July and could not have chosen a better home away from home. Stephanie and her husband were incredibly warm, friendly and knowledgeable about everything on Samui and our room itself was very clean, conveniently located, well-outfitted, and charming.
The cottages each have their own private mini-pool and garden and the 8 cottages all share a gorgeous and clean blue-tiled larger pool perfect for sunbathing. The rooms come equipped with organic locally-made soap, shampoo, and conditioner, as well as a netflix-ready TV, mini-fridge, and microwave. Unique in our time in Asia - the AC unit is situated so that it cools the cottage but doesn't blow directly on the bed - a very, very nice touch. It's a perfect example of the thoughtfulness and intentionality of the hosts!
Additionally, Stephanie and her husband provided a delicious French breakfast in a basket literally at the cottage door (with GREAT coffee) at a very reasonable cost. Perfect for having breakfast in bed before heading out for the day.
Finally, the location of the cottage was ideal. It's a very short (5 minute walk) to Choeng Moen beach, which has plenty of shops, restaurants, and of course the beach itself. There's also a restaurant with wonderful and affordable Thai, Western, and Japanese food at the end of the driveway leading up to the cottages. Plus, for trips further afield, Stephanie and her husband have motorcycles available for rent. Moon Cottage at Choeng Moen is a quiet, beautiful, and convenient home base for exploring Samui and all that it has to offer.
We can't recommend this beautiful cottage and the great hosts highly enough!!
