Highly recommended. Best place we've stayed ever. Good service and a fine breakfast and the best coffee in Thailand. Recommended if you want to enjoy the holiday away from the city and the noise, rent a scooter or walk the approximately 1200 meters up to the city. And yes there are only about 100 meters to the beach which was... More

We booked a week in the family room and it was great. The place is right at the river leading out to the ocean so it is peaceful and quiet. Sometimes you hear a group of tourists going out to the fireflies but that is about it. We also went to the restaurant over the river many times, Phu Thalay... More

This place is heaven. The location is absolutely perfect and Ian is a perfect host. We will definitely be back! Everything you need is a short walk or kayak ride away. The rooms are very clean and beautiful. Most rooms have their own terrace, with a view over the river. Just perfect!

Our family had a 5 day stay at Ian's place and everything was just perfect. The house is immaculate and most scenic. Most good things were repeated several times in other reviews and I would just add that the location on the river estuary against beachside is great as there's no wind blowing and more quiet. We discovered that the... More

My husband and I just spent 8 nights at Baan Rim Nam! This was our 3rd time staying with Ian and Mam! If you would like something different this is the place! If you are looking for a pool boy, a concierge, room service and nightly turn down service this place probably isn't for you. It's all been said before.....the... More

We were with Ian and Co for 11 nights. Fantastic location for relaxing, looking over the river watching the world go by. Ian is a font of knowledge about the island so his advice is worth listening to. He gave us a little info map of all the great restaurants, places of interest. Very laid back guy Ian, enjoyed chatting... More

I'll say it again. An excellent place to stay. We were in the family room for 8 nights and loved every minute. Beautiful views, nice rooms and a secluded spot made for a great time for us all. Our daughter loved swimming off the deck, we made extensive use of the free kayaks/canoes (which can cost 150 baht p/hour at... More

We enjoyed our stay here. Our room and bathroom were very large and clean. It was a really unique and peaceful location being on a river and looking out at the restaurants and businesses across the water. We loved using the free kayaks and canoes to check out the mangroves and to paddle 5 minutes to the ocean, and we... More

Thanks Christy for the comprehensive review. A couple of people have mentioned the walls and we've thought about who to do something about that. But there's not much we can do without taking the whole house to pieces. So for now I just have to warn guests that it isn't really suitable for honeymooners or anyone who snores loudly. :-)...

Congrats Ian, the Baan Rim Nam is still the best in town. Reasonably priced, good rooms and a relaxed and peaceful atmosphere. Trying to find a negative thing is difficult, maybe the lack of a hammock ? Food around ranges from good (Tiger Hut) to excellent (Chumnantrakool 2, right at the turnoff from the Main Street to Baan Rim Nam).... More
