We stayed at a resort in Karon for a week and often stopped at the Karon Sunshine Bar for a cold drink whilst wandering or shopping. I also stopped in for a few ice cold Singhas one afternoon whilst my wife was having some nail art done at a neighbouring boutique. The service at Sunshine was excellent and very friendly,... More

I stayed in this guesthouse with my husband for two weeks back in March. We had a room on the first floor at the back of the building. It was quiet, bright and clean and the bed was very comfortable. There was initially a drip under the bathroom sink but this was fixed promptly by the guy who works in... More

We booked this hostel in Internet, and honestly, I was not sure what we will find. We were very positively surprised. They were waiting for us late at night from our flight, the room was spacious and functional. The bed was very comfortable, the wifi was fast, the ac worked, as did the shower. The beach is 10 minutes walking.... More

Been travelling around Thailand for three weeks and mainly staying in hotels. Thought we'd take the risk and try a guesthouse and were impressed by this. First of all the location is ideal. Just off the main street in Karon so just out of reach of the noisy bars. The walk to Karon beach is less than 5 minutes. The... More

We spent 5 nights in Karon, but although we did not stay at the Guesthouse we did make a habit to call in each afternoon for a few beers. They had the coldest beers we could find and it was a great place to sit back and watch what goes on

We stayed in the Karon Sunshine Guesthouse for 2 weeks at the start of March 2014.Our room was clean, facing the garden so outside noise was not a problem. There were a few faults in the room but nothing too serious, the shower leaked at the fitting under the sink, the bathroom door didn't fit the frame so it would... More

The hotel covers just about everything you could need: Our room was clean and spacious; The WiFi coverage is pretty good; The location couldn't be better. We were quite lucky to get a room on the top floor so we avoided the worst of the street noise. The hotel is a little pricey, but you get what you pay for!

When we booked three rooms for 2 weeks, it was not possible to stay in the same rooms for all our staying in the hotel. But when we arrived, we discovered, the staff had prepared rooms for us for all our staying there and they wished we feel in the hotel very comfortably, so they upgraded one room for 3... More

We just returned from Karon Beach this morning! Mathawut and Ratree were awesome! We stayed in room #502. Lots of stairs, but worth it! Quiet, King size bed, flat screen TV, A/C and a balcony. We loved the location of this cute little guesthouse. It was in the very center of Karon. Only a 5 minute walk to the beach... More
