House for rent on Lamai beach
Lamai beach is one of the most popular on Koh Samui: clean sand, convenient descent into the water, developed infrastructure. This area has everything for a comfortable and carefree life. If you are going to stay here for a long time, it makes sense to rent a house. The selection of rental real estate is wide, mainly represented by villas and houses.
HOW MUCH TO COST REMOVING A HOUSE?
There are no constant prices. They depend on the season, condition and area of the building, market trends.
The most affordable and popular accommodation option is a few houses standing around the pool. Price 13,000 – 17,000 baht. If there is no pool, the price will be 2,000 to 3,000 baht lower.
A single house surrounded by a fence costs 23,000 baht.
A fully furnished villa with a pool and a small garden will cost 50,000 baht per month. Some owners offer rental villas for rent.
TO SELECT AN OPTIMUM OPTION, ANSWER FOR YOURSELF A FEW QUESTIONS.
How many bedrooms do you need? Their number is determined by the number of people who will live in the house. 2 bedrooms have 2 bathrooms. As a rule, in this case the house occupies 2 floors. It is more expensive than a one-story building. Price starts from 1000 USD per month.
Do I need a kitchen? In budget houses, it is often not provided. There is only a small corner for making tea, coffee and warming up food.
Are you ready to overpay for proximity to the sea? The closer the house is to the beach, the more expensive it is.
How much can you donate monthly to the painless? Define a strict budget to avoid troubles and financial drams.
HOW TO SEARCH A LAMAI BEACH HOUSE?
Take advantage of specialized Internet resources
Contact the intermediaries.
Real estate agencies work in Samui, in which citizens of Russia and the CIS countries work. You will be offered a limited selection of houses and villas available in the database. No one will choose the option that suits your needs. It is likely that they will hide negative information from you that can affect your choice, for example, about a construction project in the neighborhood or a poor condition of the building. The actual rental price may be overpriced.
Find a home on your own.
This is the best option. Arriving on the island, rent a temporary budget accommodation for a few days, rent a scooter, buy a local SIM card and remove money from the card to immediately give a deposit if you like the house.
Searches should begin in the morning. Please note that at 18.00 in Thailand it is already completely dark. Drive around the lanes methodically and look for houses with the “House for Rent” sign.
If the landlord is in place, proceed to inspect the home, if not, make an appointment by phone.
If the villa or house is comfortable, leave a deposit of 5,000 to 7,000 baht.
WHAT TO PAY ATTENTION WHEN VIEWING A HOUSE?
Houses can be equipped with either a fan or air conditioning. The latter option increases the cost of square meters by 2000 – 3000 baht.
If you need to go into the network to check your mail, you do not need high speed Internet access, you can quite be content with the general Wi-Hi for several villas. If you plan to work, then look for a house with a separate Internet point.
Check the walls, ceiling for damage. Make sure that the toilet and household appliances are working. If you find a breakdown, inform the owner of the house. Do not give the full amount until the deficiencies are resolved.
If you intend to rent a house in Lamai for an extended period, request a discount.
The owner of the villa may require a deposit of 50 to 100% of the monthly rental cost.
WHAT DO I HAVE TO PAY FOR SEPARATELY?
Gas – 500-600 baht per cylinder (1 – 1.5 months is enough for one cylinder).
Water – from 200 baht.
Electricity – 7-10 baht kW (depending on the arrogance of the homeowner).
