“Like staying with friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

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.

Our family stayed for two weeks and were made to feel so welcome. Charlie and Mod are so warm hearted, there are potential food perks and there is real concern for the well being and comfort of each guest. He is such a warmhearted Frenchman and she is such a beautiful Thai woman, they are in love, you will be surrounded by their love...

We booked just one night at Chez Charly on our way back from Krabi so as we'd be close to the airport for our flight the following day. We didn't want to leave!

Upon arrival we were made to feel at home immediately. Charly brought us into his home to discuss the formalities and we had a great chat. We were given an upgrade to an upper bungalow because it was our honeymoon, with swan towels and rose petals on the bed. It was such a touching gesture and we appreciated it so much. Charly then drove us into the beach (free of charge) for dinner - wow. He took the time to explain to us all the best places to go. So much more than we expected! It's only a 15 minute walk or a cheap cab ride to a beautiful beach with multiple amazing restaurants, beach bars, massage etc. We were so upset we only stayed one night!

Our room was absolutely spotless. Air con, complementary water, comfy bed. Everything we needed. Charly the drove us to the airport the next morning (again, free of charge).

We loved our short stay and will be back. Thank you so much.

This is my second time at Chez Charly Bungalow so i didn't think i've would have been that impressed this second time around having already experienced a fabulous stay there.
i love the cute yellow bungalows and the Eden like Garden and the room are totally spotless - never seen anything like it. I looooove it.

I wasn't expecting it but it was almost like going back home... with the sea and the sun on top! Charly and Mod are so warm and welcoming and very helpful when it comes to giving you tips on where to go and what to do. Thanks to them i was able to see places tourists don't usually get to see like the "village in the sea" where i had the best seafood ever.

I'm really happy because i found myself a little slice of heaven and can't wait to go back.

You cannot go wrong when Staying at Chez Charly.

Enjoy

Room Tip: i love the rooms on the 1st floor just because there's good size balcony and it's lovely to...

Booked by chance just because it is close to the airport and we were arriving in Thailand in different days... It became "home" and we stayed there 70% of the holidays, changing just beaches. Charles and Mod (the owners) are kind and welcoming people... He suggests you what to do, where to eat, and he even help you in organizining day trip or travel to other parts of Phuket. During our two weeks stay we had at least 3 apero offered to all guests.... One accompained by seafood! If you stay more than 3 days he picks up and bring you from and to the airport -which is just 10 minuts-. I don't want to say that Nayang is the best part of Phuket.... We just loved it, lower prices, less turists, real Thailand restaurants... Authentic.

Room Tip: It is close to the airport road, so better to ask a room in the first bungalow.

Living in Singapore "Chez Charly" is always my first choice destination to have a good break, RELAX and feel in HEAVEN!!!

What can you find there:

1st: The Host Charly will welcome you as a friend. Even the first time I went there I remember that from the 1st day at the airport where he picked me up (for free) to the last day I was delighted!
In fact in less than 24 months I stayed already 3 times at Chez Charly Bungalow! With family or with friends I have always enjoyed my stay as Charly knows all the good places to visit, to eat, to rent scooters...and to have fun!

2nd: The quality of the bungalow. They are full of charm and clean! I will advise to take The High Level Bungalow. It has a nice balcony where you can enjoy a drink, smoke etc....

3rd: Naiyang is the name of the nearest city/village. You must go there. It will take u 10 min walking distance from the bungalow. The beach is also very nice and if u like water sports u ll definitely fulfill your needs!

I rated Chez Charly Bungalow as excellent!
