Koh Samui, Thailand, August 9, 2007

There is finally relief for all looking to rent a comfortable holiday home in Koh Samui at a nice price: ( now presents an online selection of already more than 300 houses or appartments to rent in Samui - one of Thailands top islands.

Many from Europe, US or Canada want to escape the cold winter by renting a house on the tropical island as a holiday concept. Demand for long time house rentals also grows because of foreign pensionsers. According to Thailands visa regulations you can apply for a long time and renewable „pensioners visa“ if you are 50 years or older and do not work in Thailand if you show up with a Thai bank account deposit of at least 800.000 Baht (about 20.000 Euro or 30.000 US $).

Many who travel to Samui to stay there for some weeks, month or longer choose to live in privacy in a rented home with several rooms, a kitchen, a terasse and often extras like a garden or a swimming pool. Many who know Samui know that for some weeks or more a rented house is a much better deal then staying in a hotel room.

„At we offer online booking for the Koh Samui many sided world of holiday houses or appartments“ Mr. Floeter-Rosdale, manager of Unit 202 Co. Ltd. explains. „You can rent houses at more quiet locations near the nature. And you will find holiday homes next to town centers like the beach roads of Lamai and Chaweng, the largest places on the Island. Both beach roads run in parallel to the beach and are active nearly 24 hours a day as centers for shopping, restaurant visits, banking and other services as well as night life. There are also houses on the sea shore or with spectacular sea views or mountain views.“

You can find house rentals at ( starting at around 200 Euro (ca. 280 US $) per month. Apart from houses for the smaller travel budget you can also book luxury villas for millionaires in Samui. However, their rental fees can cost easily 10 times or much more of your rent for a more modest holiday house.

Online booking in advance is an important issue – especially for the main holiday seasons. „Booking well in advance is higly recommended for the holiday peak seasons from December until March and the summer holiday time in Europe“ explains Mr. Flöter-Rosdale. For those looking to rent houses shortly before or on arrival can expect that the best offers for holiday homes are already occupied. However also in late booking cases some late possibilities will be available online at Samuifinder come.“ ( is a multilingual web site for information and services for Koh Samui since 2006.

We expect that the number of Samui holiday homes offered online will grow from now 300 to more then 600 at end of 2007“ explains Mr. Eberhard Flöter-Rosdale, general manager of Unit 202 Co. Ltd ( running „There is clearly a trend toward a longer holiday stay in Koh Samui and this is clearly an option in favour of renting a comfortable house.“
