I found what looks like a lovely villa in Khao Lak by doing a google search but the owner requires payment in full 90 days before we go. How do I know that it is legitimate? There are no reviews on Trip Advisor (the owner says because it has only been available for rent for a few months) and the booking is not through an agency.
The villa is called Baan Nam Chok and is on Pak Weep beach. The website is: www.similanvilla.com. Any ideas as to how I can be sure this isn't a scam?
