Apple and Chris go out of their way to make you feel welcome and at ease. They are open and helpful and respect your space at the same time. I mean if you are really social and like to chat they are there for you, but if you prefer to relax and loose yourself in books or meditation, there is no pushing "to join the fun".
The grounds and the bungalows are well kept and comfortable. Most of their guests stay for weeks even months, so after a while the "family feeling" is evident.
The bungalows are in the second row from the sea, so you need to walk ca. 200 m to step into the water. We found this an advantage, since at night its really quiet even if there are big waves at the sea.
The internet is really fast, even if everybody is on it watching movies.
Its true for any accomodation in this area: you have to have your own transportation to get around.You can get scooters from Chris. They are strong and reliable. (On my send day I had a flat tire. Chris took it to the workshop straight away with his car and got it fixed.I didn't even have to ask for help, got it anyway.)
Their price is cheap for the quality of the service you get.
The fact that we were the only couple at the place who were ther for the first time, just tells the tale that its a Nr 1 place to stay for your holiday.
For our taste the bed was hard, but its trus for Thailand in general in our experince.
The area is relaxed, the roads are in good condition for the most part. The local people are kind and helpful. There are no tourist traps here and you pay local price for everything. Easy holiday. We found that there are lot of western senior people spending the EU cold months here and some live here permanently.You can shop western food items as well in town if you get tired of the thai flavors (even Feta or Mozzarella cheese as well) There is even a guitar shop in town - I havent got a clue how its doing business in an agriculture area.
Do not expect night life here at all.
We shall be back for sure. Thanks a lot Apple and Chris!!
