after having read all the great reviews i stayed at apple;s for just 2 days with another friend. alas we realized that 2 days were not enough. this small guesthouse is indeed a retreat. rooms and bathrooms are spotless clean --- everything looks exactly as you see in the pictures. the property is maintained very well.
its no luxury hotel so do not expect any such facilities. rooms do not have tv or phones or tea coffee. but hey if you really want some quiet time, this is the place. the restaurant on site serves everything you may need.
the cooking class is a must . they are very good with arranging any tours that you want to take and i advise that you do as withing an hour around town there are several beautiful places to visit.
the staff--- best i found anywhere -- always at your help
location - perfect - other side of kwai so its quiter - no worries the retreat inhouse car will drop you wherever you want - plus town is just 10-15 mins walk away
food- fantastic- tried many other restaurants and apple's was best
transportation - we hired a private car (the luxury part) from bangkok THB 2000- but guys just make a deal with local taxi in bangkok for one way to kanchanaburi --- there are enough cheap deals to go back to bangkok- local taxis again
we used apple's car to go around sightseeing and it was great... not that they charged us more or anything plus we got an air conditioned vehicle with a known driver - perfect
i am sorry i am thinking hard for anything negative but there is nothing i can think of
THEY ONLY ACCEPT CASH - FOR EVERYTHING. so if you do not have enough cash--- hit the bank near the bridge and get some. this was the only inconvenience as some people might think. but hey it did not bother us.
apple 2 and noi and the others whose names i missed - thanks to them we had a really relaxing and great time
