We stayed at Chez Charly for 6 weeks from mid May till end of June. While it is possible to find slightly cheaper options in Nai Yang for long stays (we did look at a lot of bungalows in the area), Chez Charly offers the best settings and truly amazing hospitality that I believe makes it stand above all the rest.
Charlie and Mot are lovely hosts who did everything they could to make us feel at home. From driving us from and to the airport with all the kitesurfing gear, to the glass of Pastis every time we popped by to ask for something, to being invited to Mot’s birthday party and feeling like a local.
We spent the first week in the upper level studio attached to the main house which has a microwave, kitchen sink and some kitchen facilities. I was functional and had a nice terrace but as we were staying long-term after the first week we decided to move to the larger upper floor bungalow room in the main garden. The bungalow room is lovely and comfortable, the balcony overlooks the lush garden and the green field next door. It is very peaceful.
The property is not right on the beach and it is a good 15 minutes walk into the main part of town but it was not an issue for us as we got a scooter that we could safely park at the front of the house. It is not expensive to rent a scooter in NaiYang and it makes you totally independent and free to explore the nearby area.
The gardens are lush and pleasant. There are tables under wooden huts to relax and have tea.
Please note that there are no facilities to cook your own food in the bungalow but there are plenty of restaurants in NaiYang to satisfy all budgets.
Overall we really loved our stay at Chez Charly bungalow and I would definitely recommend it as a lovely arrangement in beautiful settings with personal service and at very good value for money for the standards it provides. If I was to go back to Nai Yang I would definitely stay at Chez Charly again.
