Koh Samui Villa
As more properties are completed around Koh Samui the number and variety of villas available for rent is increasing exponentially. Few property owners spend all their time on Samui and those who buy villas within a residential community often sign a management contract that allows the company to rent out their villa when they are away.
The choice of property available for rent both long and short term is now vast. At the top end luxury villas in dramatic hill or beachside locations with infinity pools and onsite staff can cost up to 2000$ a night, while at the other end of the scale a small bungalow in a residential complex can be rented for as little as 10,000 baht a month.
According to local rental agents, mid-range family homes are the most popular at present. Larger villas with two three bedrooms and a swimming pool cost up to 300$ per night during peak periods, while longer term rentals in similar properties go for 25-30,000 baht per month. The demand is high at this level and agents are constantly looking for more properties to rent out.
The clients for Samui rental accommodation come mainly from northern Europe during the peak holiday seasons and the average length of stay is a week to ten days. During other months of the year expatriate customers from places like Hong Kong, Singapore and Japan are also a major market, while long term rental clients are usually foreigners working on the island or retired folk who may spend several months at a time on Samui.
With a strong internet presence and prolific worldwide marketing, rental villas on Samui are increasingly in demand at every level and budget. Even at the high end, many of the larger villas can accommodate groups of friends or families, and this makes them very competitive when compared with luxury hotels. As this sector expands, it may well provide serious competition for conventional hotel accommodation as it provides affordable luxury and privacy at a price no longer achievable in other parts of the world.
