Fabulous villa with wonderful views and an almost private beach - December 2017
Toni, the villa manager, couldn’t have been more helpful. She was there when we needed her, but really unintrusive (which is not always the case in my experience) and helped arrange a brilliant masseuse and had a cook come in for us for exceptional Thai food. The villa helper was on hand to clean up and again was very unintrusive – but just seemed to appear when a messy kitchen needed some help!
The pool was clean and, for anyone worried about young children, a slight walk down from the villas – which was a big advantage, For me, the biggest treat was having a beach which was practically private, two minutes walk away.
You definitely need a car to get around – but the location of the villa is great – everywhere we wanted to go was within 15 minutes of the villa (other than a big shop at Tescos which was thankfully more like 25 minutes away). The local village is a 5 minute drive with a 7-11 and small restaurants.
Absolutely recommend Dee Dee Villas. Would love to return.

one more excellent vacation ~ February 23, 2015 ~ Kirill - Moscow, Russia
Host are very good English guys always in touch always helping. bedlinen and towels changing regularly, There is a new gaz BBQ in a patio, so you could make fresh fish BBQ and party for the friends. Memo: there is one more house on this land plot, we usually rent both with our friends family, but you should take it into account. One more time – location is great but a bit distance from any roads, beaches etc, which is good on out taste BUT the car or bike strongly recommended. Anyhow THANK YOU TONY AND JAMESY we will be back for sure this year, so reserve a new villas now.
Amazing return visit ~ February 22, 2015
The villas are now staffed by a wonderful Thai couple who cook fantastically authentic and delicious Thai cuisine. We have eaten a lot of Thai food over the years and the dishes that were cooked for us were some of the best we have had.
The taxi service was also a great addition, like your having your own personal chauffeur! We used it several days to go to different beaches and get picked up later in the day. It was great value for money and pick up was always very easy and always on time.
Overall we had a wonderful stay and can’t wait to go back.
Wow what a perfect holiday! ~ February 19, 2015
Within minutes of check in the children were in the swimming pool. The villas were immaculate and welcome drinks were supplied. To our surprise we were also offered a complimentary breakfast the very next morning and a selection of dishes for dinner from the menu supplied also complimentary.
The staff came each day to empty the bins, wash up and sweep the estate. The bay of Haad Thong Lang was shallow and therefore child friendly however I would recommend beach shoes.
From the pick up at the ferry to the drop back at the end of our stay the service was great.
We hope to come again to Dee Dee Villa Retreat. It is like a second home.
a great holiday ~ December, 2014
We managed to secure these villas as a last minute booking for 5 adults, 3 kids.
We were pleasantly surprised to have staff that put up umbrellas and put out the sun lounger cushions, washed up daily and emptied the bins. The manager Toni was very attentive to our needs and was knowledgeable.
We had a free breakfast the morning after check in and was also offered a complimentary dinner from the menu supplied. We had the complimentary dinner the day before check out and what a mistake that was as the food was the best we had tasted throughout our visit.
The pool, the beach, the view, the villa themselves all created a special time for us.
Thank you Dee Dee Villa Retreat.
Yet again another amazing stay it deedeevillas ~ December, 2014

Already got my dates booked for this year
A real retreat from the world ~ 22 July 2014 ~ Berry Colchester
Our family is part Thai and we have travelled extensively throughout Thailand, and I have to say Koh Phangan and Dee Dee was one of the reals gems we have discovered. The location is down a rutted road (4×4 suggested – we had 2), and is completely removed from all the touristy destinations on the island. The beach is essentially private, we had it to ourselves our whole stay. Beach shoes needed as lots of dead coral, but worth wading out to the reef for some excellent snorkelling.
Jamsey (owner) and Toni (manager) were really helpful whilst we were making our booking, and kindly provided a cot and highchair for my little one. Really nice to know our booking was with people who obviously pride themselves on professionalism and a personal touch.
We hired both villas and enjoyed the novelty of having a private pool. Toni and her team came in twice daily (at an agreed time) to empty the bins, tidy up, open/close the pool umbrellas etc. The couple of times we had a minor problem (e.g: blocked toilet), Toni had it sorted within a very sort time.
We found the villas were well located for exploring the island, again with the use of our rental cars. It’s a short drive to the nearby fishermans village, and we ate at 2 excellent seafood restaurants there (very much Thai style and authentic). There is also a diving shop, 7-11, pharmacy and elephant trekking nearby. We did several excursions around the island – Haad Rin Nok for shopping, waterfalls, visiting Salad and Mae Haad beach. We also had a great hike to Bottle Beach over the headland. 1h walk for most, we did it in 2 as I was carrying my toddler on my back.
My favourite thing about staying at Dee Dee was waking up to the magnificent views, and spending time as a family in the large outdoor patio. It was so serene and quiet, all you can hear is the ocean and birds in the forest that surrounds it. We did a fair bit of our own cooking and the kitchens were well equipped. The only negative point was I found the lack of air-conditioning in the living/kitchen areas uncomfortable at times, especially in the evenings when we had to close the doors to keep mosquitoes out. I’d suggest installing an A/C unit in each villa’s communal area, and mosquito screens on the doors for a more comfortable stay. However, there is a lovely breeze from the sea which keeps the villa cool during the day when the doors are open.
In summary, my whole family had a really lovely stay at Dee Dee, and Toni was a star – looking after us all (even posting my brothers wallet that he left behind). We’ll be hoping to stay here again next time we visit Phangan. Thanks guys!
Simply great ~ 11 March 2014 ~ PiotrP from Warsaw
A little slice of paradise in Koh Phangan ~ January 2014 ~ Joanna
Beautiful veiws and privacy and definate plus. ~ Dec 2013 ~ Alison
The complimentary food package upon arrival was a lovely unexpected surprise,(the crossaints were amazing) and the fridge was stocked with almost everything we needed for the first few days. Also plenty of fresh bottled water which was conveneint.
The villa is located quite far away from the main tourist areas, but only a 5 min drive from Chaloklum, and we very much thought of this as a positive. We had the option to a private driver which we utilised and he was very lovely.
The villas are nice, the air-con very good, but I think in need of a few upgrades, the views are spectacular and the beach just down from the villas were awesome for snorkelling, and hardly anyone else around.
Although we missed some of the things you would be provided in a resort – the privacy was a very worthy comprimise. I would recommend the villas to family and friends, and I’m quite sure we will be coming back.
Excellent accomodation, location and Hosts ~ Dec 2013 ~ Andrew
The accomodation itself was lovely and private, the bay where it is located is really like your own paradise, snorkling there was ideal as it is sheltered from currents and there were plenty of little fish to look at. It is a quick trip to Chaloklum village which is perfect if you want to escape the tourist mecca located on Haad Rin. The village has everything you need 7/11, restaurants, dive shops and a few pubs. Truely a wonderful little part of the world.
Thanks again Toni for your vigilence and professionalism couldn’t ask for more and you made our holiday a little more special.
Absolutely Perfect” ~ Dec 2013 ~ Sarah
