The staff are very friendly and accommodating at this wonderful guesthouse. As first time visitors to Koh Tao, Philippe and his wife gave us lots of information and answered all of our queries. They also run a travel agent which makes it easy to organise excursions. We would recommend the snorkelling trip, a superb day out. A good nights sleep... More

It was a real pleasure having you here and great satisfaction in knowing that you enjoyed your time here. Actually, were are very busy during high season but we get the time to recommend restaurants, pubs or spots to discover. A little help from local people is sometime better than an heavy guidebook !!
