Enjoying the journey
Almost 10 years ago my own Thailand adventure started with an one way ticket to Phuket. After spending one month in Phuket and Bangkok each, Koh Samui was supposed to wrap up this memorable experience before heading home to continue my path of becoming a lawyer.
But Samui instantly became a special place for me. Making new friends and staying together in a big villa we had the time of our young lives. I not only fell in love with the laid back island vibe, but more importantly with a very special person. Being able to earn money online it wasn`t a very difficult decision to extend my stay. Fast forward until today and you still find me on this very island together with Tee, the girl I met back then.
Doing well workwise and enjoying life on Koh Samui at the same time I decided to buy a modest home for ourselves in 2014. I visited dozens of properties and almost bought two, but during this process the idea of creating our own place became more and more vivid. Instead of completed houses I started to look at empty plots. The search for the perfect piece of land took many months and being a resident on the island definitely helped to understand the various neighbourhoods better. I can say with full confidence that Villa Melo is situated perfectly – I chose the location to make it our home! – In contrast to the ever increasing number of new villa developments for investors.
In 2015 I bought this beautiful plot and started construction with our new home right away. Since life is full of opportunities this particular piece of land was sold with two existing building permits and similarly like staying on Koh Samui in the first place before, it felt like the only next step forward to start with the second house only a few months after the first footing was laid.
In January 2016 we could move into the upper villa, having family and friends visiting us in our new home in the following months. But the next chapter was about to unfold. Instead of living in one villa ourselves and renting out the other one to residents, we decided to add an apartment below the second house for us and to start welcoming and hosting guests from all over the world in our two villas. Still being able to enjoy the villas ourselves on some, but also sharing it with our guests and meeting new people on other days was the birth of Villa Melo. At the end of July 2016 we welcomed our very first guest Alexei from Finland
Spending your holiday in Villa Melo is different than in one of many villas in a big development. Our villas are our home and we constantly make improvements and add value for us and for you. Not particularly because it makes sense from an investment standpoint, but because it makes living at home cozier and more comfortable. We feel an honest responsibility to do our very best to assist you as our guest in creating the memorable holiday you deserve. We understand that for many of you it might be their only chance to visit Koh Samui and all of you worked hard for this vacation. Ensuring you will find a home we like staying in ourselves, being available and responsive at any time lay the foundation. Providing local insight, putting the experience of our guests first and treat you as a friend instead of a customer set us apart from the rest.
