This place is awesome. After walking up and down the beach at checking out other bungalows, there is no doubt that Nautilous gives you the best bang for your buck. View wise - awesome. Beach is right in front of you. The grounds are nicely kept to. If you go to other bungalows in the area, you will see that they look like they just built some huts in the slums (ex. Funky Fish). You wouldn't want to sit outside your bungalow in those places because you would just be looking at garbage. At Nautilous, the grounds are kept clean and it has an open air feel to it and the beach is RIGHT THERE. The on site restaurant is good and decently priced. The owners can be a bit reserved at first but they gave great service. The Thai staff were super friendly.
One downside is that this place is overrun by families with their young kids. So you will hear a lot of kids crying which kinda ruins the tranquillity vibe. Another downside is that the beach in front is quite rocky, but you only have a walk up the beach a couple minutes to get a sandier beach.
I'm not a fan of outdoor bathrooms but this one was do-able.
We booked for 5 days and ended up spending 8 days here.
