House 20 had never been free when we stayed here previously but luckily we were able to spend a week here. Inside it is very well put together. Fixtures and fittings were lovely and the porch makes for a lovely post beach drink in the evening.

We stayed at the beach republic but ate at the Starbay restaurant next door where the food was excellent, value for money with good serves and service was great. We enjoyed this restuarant so much we ate there three times in one week. Would recommend to anyone looking for good Thai food.

We stayed next door at the Beach Republic but we ate most of our meals here at the Starbay, the staff were very friendly and the food was quite cheap, the only disappointment was the hamburger which wasn't quite right, the rest of the food was tasty and plentiful and the views are spectacular. Worth a try.

At our first night at Le Meridien, we attempted to eat at the lovely dinner on the pier but were turned away due to lack of reservation. So, we went right next door and decided to have dinner at Starbay on their open porch. We were greeted immediately and attended to very well. We ordered a mango slush, seafood pad... More

We have been returning annually for several years now and love this place. We have moved around a bit in terms of accommodation but have to say that house 20 is our favourite. It is bright, spacious and clean with nice furniture and everything you need in the kitchen. The two bedrooms upstairs, one with balcony, are comfortable and well... More

Great atmosphere for a family run Thai restaurant. Good value and very helpful staff. We were staying next door at Beach Republic and had a lunch for the 2 of us one afternoon and were so impressed went back with the family that night. Authentic local Thai dishes so don't expect upmarket and modern. All in all great value and... More

We had dinner 4 December and the food was excellent. We stayed at the Le Meridian next door but decided to walk down the beach one night and found the Starbay restaurant. We both had fish, prepared per our request, very fresh, generous serving size, with fresh vegetables and tasty Thai style sauce. What really impressed me was the banana... More

Since each unit is privately owned it is hit and miss. We traveled with another family and while our unit (20) was clean and very nice, their unit (19) was horribly dirty and had mice. They did get moved to unit 5 and had a much better experience in that unit. We had a week without internet and the manager... More
