We stayed at Baan Kaew for a total of almost 2 weeks in January of this year. The rooms are kept EXTREMELY clean (cleaned daily), the staff is very friendly, the air conditioning WORKS! It is a very quite location, set back a ways from the road. You can wake up to birds chirping. The garden is charming, and the owners very nice.
It was easily one of the nicest places you will find in this price range.
The ONLY problems with Baan Kaew...
*for a family, the atmosphere might be TOO quiet. We found that sometimes our kids would be shooshed even when they were not being terribly loud or rambunctious.
*the food is somewhat overpriced for only mediocre quality
*even though we had reserved our room months in advance, we were bumped due to overbooking. We found out that this is quite common though, and it is possible to deny their request to leave. That said, the owner went out of her way to find use comperable accomodations and made the reservation for us. She informed us of her "mistake" very early in our stay, so it really wasn't a huge inconvenience.
*you absolutely MUST have a map with you with Baan Kaew circled or noted, or an address in Thai, as it is on a one way road (at certain times of the day) as well as being small enough that tuk tuk drivers and songtao drivers sometimes have NO clue where you are trying to get to :)
Even with these issues, we have every intention of going back to Baan Kaew this winter with all 4 of our kids :)
