Being kind of a high-maintenance traveler, I decided to try something different and booked Seafront Suite 1 at Mango House. Duane, the owner, was very helpful with our reservation and booking our transfer from Krabi airport to the house. Once, we arrived, we fell in love with the quiet/authentic feel of the old town village and its residents. The house... More

beautiful spot in paradise. stay away if you want to be pampered and help yourself to an all you can eat buffet. in mango house you can enjoy the peace and quiet of this beautiful island. it is situated over the water (no beach) and very close to local shops and restaurants. staying here is the perfect way to meet...

The place itself is reasonably nice, quite rustic and not necessarily luxury. Quite far from the beach though and you have to fork out quite a bit to get private transport to the other side of the island. Nice if you wanna get away from the standard tourist accommodations though. The owner in our experience is a bit blunt and... More

Mango House is on a more laid back time schedule. you're still around everything you need (shopping, restaurants, the pier, etc) however you still feel like you are in your own little paradise, surrounded by local culture. This makes for a truly unique experience of Little Koh Lanta. The rooms are on stilts right over the ocean, nothing better than... More

Me and my partner stayed at Mango House villas and we enjoyed our weekend tremendously. The 180 degree view from our villa was amazing. The sunrise was truly spectacular. Old Town is a great location for exploring Thai culture. There are several good Thai restaurants and coffee shops in town. It's also a great step-off point for exploring the local... More

this was our best holiday ever as Thailand lovers! if you're looking for a genuine holiday experience in the middle of an authentic fisher village, this is the place. when you're open to meet locals, you might find here some new friends. from the first moment, it felt like our second home. the construction of the house (and yes, i...

This place more than exceeded my expectations. It's not for everybody because it is a little rustic. But what it has is charm. I love being right on the water. I spent most of my time in the hammock on the deck. I found Duane to be very helpful every step of the way. The house was clean and better... More

Now, I know there are some people who will think that any poor review of the mango house is simply because it's not a "resort" or "modern". That could not be farther from the truth. We WANTED an authentic experience and house. What we DIDNT want was to be insulted and hassled. Yes, it was disorganized upon arrival/check in, but... More

This group of so called "professional well-traveled" women were the rudest, most self-important group of Americans to ever stay at Mango House. It is explained very clearly when the booking is made that final payment is due when the guests check in. They basically ignored my request for payment or several days until I was fed up and demanded payment.... More

I must say, I am WELL aware that I will not get a positive or appropriate response from the owner of this water house based on other comments left by guests - and I am doing it any way! We gave him ample opportunity to discuss any issues with us face to face in order to avoid such a response.... More
