Stayed here for 18 nights in 2008 but only just getting round to writing the review DOH! This place is heaven on earth and Phil and Wendy the owners are salt of the earth, we felt like part of the family, they really make you feel special and go the extra mile which makes Smile House stand out from the rest. The food is resonably priced but not the cheapest around but you know it's fresh and Phil is an excellent chef (loved the freshly caught fish we BBQ'd) It is a little way out from the town and beach but it is so easy to get around and cheap to hire cards or mopeds but be warned the Thais drive like maniacs!! shopping good, loads to do round Rawai, beaches amazing, nai harn beach prob one of the best and it was only 5 or 10 min drive from Smile House. Travel round the island, do the piu piu island boat trip for sure, and go with an open mind and lastly whatever you do don't ring the bell in the bars or be persuaded to get a "Bin" which is a bar tab coz you'll end up spending a fortune while your having fun and not realise (yes we got caught out lol) All in all one of the best holidays we've all had and we hope to return to get married and rent out the whole of Smile House as it the perfect resort in our eyes. Enjoy and send our love to Phil and Wendy they are the nicest couple we've had the pleasure in meeting (oh and wendy's mum!) :o)
