Stayed here on our honeymoon. Great spot, a short 5 minute walk from the beach. The family that runs this place is super friendly and accommodating. They are always there to help out or cook a quick meal or serve a nice cocktail. The room is clean, toilet, shower, large bed and nice cold A/C. Thanks again for welcoming us!

This is very basic accommodation, so don't expect too much. However, the room was clean (AC blew cold and there was a lock box), food in the restaurant was good, and hospitality was just great. The place is convenient to food and drink, and is a stone throw away from the beach. Great value for the price, highly recommend to... More

The staff is nice, and when staff is not there they can be called on, or we leave the key at front desk when we leave. Guesthouse have no... More

Stayed here for just under 3 weeks. I must say the rooms are better, cleaner, more modern than the 4 star Andaman Seaview resort my parents stayed at for over 4 times the price. The staff cannot do enough to make stay relaxing and also provide 2 bottles of drinking water free of charge every day. Safe, fridge and air... More

The rooms are very spacious and are cleaned every day. I booked over the internet and was quoted a price to include breakfast, but the restaurant did... More

After feeling we needed to get away from Patong beach, we looked for a good value place on Karon Beach. Although the Thai Elephant guest house was a little way back from the beach, we very much enjoyed our stay of 3 days their. The guesthouse is only two rooms on each of its 3 levels, but all rooms are... More

We stayed at this newly opened guest house for 5 weeks and were their first guests! The rooms are all gorgeous and feel very luxurious after 3 weeks of low cost hotels and hostels in Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand. Its so great to have a power shower and hot water and the rates are really reasonable. The staff are great... More
