“Disappointing place”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

We were expecting much more from this place. We were very surprised to find a very cheap and tiny shower in what is called the "Deluxe" white room. See the photos enclosed. We would never have come here for 2,000 bath if we knew this very annoying detail, given the very large choice that you have in Hua Hin. It would have been a very different story if the bathroom was a "real" one.
The owners are nice and the service too. Good effort on the decoration and the common areas.

Dear Mr Nguyen
Thank you for this review and this is useful for us to improve our house.
Our different structure and design. InnWhite room has been designed with maximum outdoor and balcony. This is the largest large balcony room, 34 sq mtrs with garden. Part of the design, the toilet and bathroom are shower enclosures with standard size so that it was designed fit the limited space. This room is suitable for those who enjoy the view and outdoor balcony as the description describe on the websites. I didn t really know that what is your expectations and your purpose, you requested to book InnWhite room which make me though you have read those details. I read your past reviews from previous visited hotel and I just realized that your expectations are quite high. If you would have told me what your dislike about our room when you check in, the size of toilet for this instance, I m more than happy to change a new available room with bigger bathroom.

Thanks
Node

This guesthouse is perfect! Most of all, it is Node and Indy, the owners, that make it what it is. It is immaculately well kept, and really well designed, each room with it's own character. It also benefits from being newly renovated. It's very easy to reach from the central night market by riding the green minibuses that go up and down the main road all day for about 15baht, so if you're worried about it not being right at the centre, don't be, because it's all the better for not being in the centre. Takes 10 minutes to reach from the centre, and the beach is much quieter and more beautiful down the southern end. It also means you can walk to the headland with the big golden bhudda on a lot easier than if you are up near the centre.There are also lots of great places to eat nearby, we reccomend the street restaurant on the other side of the main road from Sea Harmony that did great thai food for dirt cheap.

We originally planned to stay here for only 4 nights, but because we couldn't travel till later, we ended up staying 5 nights with no hassle. When we arrived, we were offered drinks and instantly felt like were being welcomed home as we were asked about how our journey had been that day. We were then shown to our room, we had the cheapest one on the ground floor, and it was brilliant. Nice nautical theme and there was complimentary drinking water on arrival. The TV has a range of thai channels, but you can rent more channels for only 90 baht per day, these include a lot of english channels. Alternatively, you could just sit in the bar area and watch the tv for free, and the owners are more than happy for you to have the remote and watch what you want.

The breakfast is fantastic, with an english breakfast on offer or a daily special, or cereal. You also get fresh fruit and proper tea and coffee.

We didn't really know too much about Hua Hin before arriving but Node was very helpful and told us all about what to do (both the owners speak perfect english), we even ended up spending a day at the nearby waterpark which was fantastic and you should definitely go there on your stay.

The owners helped us book all onward travel, as well as negotiate better prices for us such as for the taxi to the waterpark.

All in all, this place is fantastic and you shouldn't even think about staying anywhere else in Hua Hin.

Room Tip: Any room is great, the more you pay, the bigger the room

Great welcome and be friendly. There are 3 little dogs to welcome. If you like a dog It's so cute. Normally guesthouse serve bread and jam or American breakfast but we get Sweden breakfast, Mocha coffee and hot Cocoa, It's surprise and all are delicious..
The Guesthouse was safety and private. "Different room with different style". I choose Navy's room. This room is at first floor but so quiet. I recommend to repair washbasin. Water flow through slow. Owner can advice other place and sightseeing too. They know place to travel very well. Next time I go to Hua Hin, I will choose "Sea Harmony" again.

A very COSY HOME.... Execellent & highly recommended, but be sure to book in advance!
What can I say, they serve great breakfast, nice pets to keep U entertained, and the nights are peaceful & quiet, and its just a stone's throw away from the beach................

One complain: there's lots of mosquitos, and I left the place with at least 6-7 bites from those mozzies...

I stayed at Sea Harmony Guesthouse recently for just over two weeks. There is also a cafe attached. Node and Indy are welcoming, friendly and accommodating.

I was in the navy room on the bottom floor and found it to be private and very comfortable. The guesthouse and cafe are kept spotless. Node likes to cook and I had two dinners in the cafe which were delicious.

The beach isn't too far away - 5min walk if that. Local shops are available at the end of the street and the 10baht bus can also be caught there for a trip into Hua Hin town centre which isn't all that far away.

I would happily stay again and have no hesitation in recommending Sea Harmony.

My husband and I have just spent an enjoyable relaxing week at this unassuming guesthouse that grew on us daily. With only 6 rooms is provided us with a personal service from Node and Yui the owner of the Sea Harmony.

From the minute we arrived we were treated like friends and family with drinks and the brightest smiles.

On checking in our room were ready. We had book the room upstair for 2 people with beautiful private barcalny and nice decalation. The room was clean and bright with everything's you could need for a relaxing holiday. The guesthouse only has 6 bedrooms so you never felt at though it was over crowded and at time even though the guesthouse was full, it's seem as we were the only guests staying there. It's was very quited and we were not disturbed by the other guest even though the guesthouse was full over the new year periods.

The staff were always on hand if your required any service and drinks serving by the owner Node and Yui with the biggest smiles. I found the breakfast was varied and well presented cooked by the owner nice food and coffee.

The location of the guesthouse is about five miles from the centre of Hau Hin, this was easy enought to get to by publice transport by Tuk Tuk for 20 bath or taxi for 100 bath or drive with your own car take you only 10-15 min.

All in all i could not recommend this guesthouse enough, everythings was perfect from minute we checked in until the minute we left. Would certainly stay here again. Good for family and couples.
Thank you to Node, Yui and Pela.

Run by a very friendly chap named Note. He's not at all pushy about extra services, but clever enough to bring them up in a suggestive manner, which will set him apart from other places in the area (my last search in hua hin was less accommodating). The rooms are bright and colored in a relaxing way. Moreover, it's close enough to the coast to get a nice breeze on the second floor when the windows are open. His breakfast is included and of decent quality; it's a medium sized portion, but fat westerners like myself could do with a little moderation now and then. It's a bit far from the nightlife in terms of walking if that's important to you, but it's quite near a very private and uncluttered portion of the beach, which is more important in my mind. In any case, Note will be happy to point you toward the nearest desired place and help you find transportation there. There is a bright and comfy living area with lots of reading material and a sofa, as well as a similarly colored second-storey pavilion outdoors. Both are a nice place to chill out and lounge if the weather doesn't agree with your plans. There were some issues with mosquitos and flies in the daytime, but they seem to disappear at night. I would stay again given the chance. It's good value for money.
