I called before to make a reservation and they took my reservation for a bungalow for expensive 500B - this is the beach after all. Khlong Jack is after the paved roads are over - seems like they will soon be paved - so the owner's son when to pick me up at the nearest little village - pretty nice gesture. The settings of this place are quite nice, green and spacious, and the concrete bungalows (if there is such thing) are spread apart, which is great. The confusing part is that the place was mostly closed due to renovation and he hadn't told me that. They had no restaurant and half the concrete bungalows where already empty, since they are now building a new eating area and new wooden bungalows. I got the feeling I was put in a house about to be demolished. There was one bed missing and the shower was a ridiculous string of water with no pressure. The furniture was improvised with hangers in a string attached to nails and also the inside bathroom walls were being badly invaded by ants, lots of them. Yes, it had working AC and clean sheets, but it was a bit sad inside the abandoned house. The good part was some of the guys that work in the constructions there also live in the bungalows just a few meters away, and they are a lot nicer and helpful than the son's owner I'd say.
They are not at the beach, but ridiculously close.
