“A mini villa with something extra”
Reviewed February 4, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We stayed in their one bedroom studio/bungalow while were there and we loved every minute of it. Ratchi & her team made sure we had everything that we
needed and even gave us some great tips about restuarants and other attractions on the island. The bungalow itself is very fresh and looks completely newly built. The studio/bungalow is not right in front of the beach but it is only a 30 second walk away from it. The area is a bit secluded since you have to get on a minor road before you reach the place, so I would recommend hiring a motorbike/scooter while you are here, even though the place is not far from the main road and some restuarants. The best ones is a short trip away though.

“Wonderful Villa”
Reviewed February 3, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Our stay in the Charu Bay Villa was amazing. The house has everything you need. It looks exactly as on the photos online!
The owners are very helpful and kind. They are helping in every situation; if it's renting scooters or booking a day trip. They also picked us up at the port in Thong Sala. It's rare to have such generous and cooperative owners!
The situation of the house is perfect if you wanna stay in a lively area and near the centre of Koh Phangan. It's a perfect starting point to go to Halfmoon Festival, Haad Rin or to the North of the island.
We really recommend to stay in the Charu Bay Villas!

“Amazing Place”
Reviewed August 22, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The villa is brand new and in great condition. It has everything you would need. It's located right next to a lovely sandy beach and a resort with a spa. Neal, the owner, was a superb host. You can also rent bikes off Neal and take a spin around the island to any one of the amazing beaches.

“Great villa ran by lovely people”
Reviewed August 21, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Myself my girlfriend and another couple rented the smaller villa for 4 nights. Neal and his wife where terrific hosts. Neal met us at the pier and checked us in showed us the property. He then chatted about what we wanted to do while staying in Koh phangan such as the full moon party among a number of other things. He also gave us some great advice about thailand and where we should head on the rest of our trip. The property is lovely but Neal was a great find in thailand as he was a treasure trove of advice and help. I would recommend Charu bay to everyone.

“A wonderful villa and a nice service !”
Reviewed August 14, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

My husband and I stayed for 4 nights at the beach side villa, and we could not imagine a better place than this one for our stay in Koh Phangan.
Everything in the villa is functional, modern and lovely. We also rent a top quality scooter (necessary in this island) to the owner - Neal - which made our stay even more convenient.
Neal, with his wife, is really nice: he was 100% clear with us from the beginning and ensured everyday that we did not need anything else.
If you have the chance to book some nights in one of these two villas, go for it since there is everything and a host you can rely on.

“Relaxing stay and great hospitality.”
Reviewed July 31, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Neal (the owner) is a great guy, he picked us up and dropped us of at the pier without any charge. Also he took us to the supermarkt when we arrived so we could buy some food for the first day.
The environment is really relaxing. We were in the garden villa which has a nice rooftop with sea view where you can sit down and relax with a drink at sunset or even have breakfast. The garden villa also has 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom (with shower), an equiped kitchen and a living room. Nice details: there were also some dvd's and a BBQ. Also possible to rent a scooter from Neal which brings you in no time to the other side of the isle.
We went to koh phangan when there were no moonparty's and it was very peacefull. Really enjoyed our stay.

“It was that good.. I came back again!”
Reviewed July 28, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

I just wanted to drop by with an updated review after I stayed again for 3 weeks in December 2015.

Neal has added air conditioning to the main room which was a big improvement, plus many nice additions to the kitchen, the rooftop terrace and all around the property. I felt so welcome after the first stay that I decided to stay again.

I have been visiting Koh Phangan regularly since around 2010 and have to say this is my favourite accommodation so far. In fact, I wanted to stay again for a few months in early 2016 but it books out fast and was unavailable for my dates.

Thank you for an awesome stay again Neal and making me feel so welcome.

See you in Phangan soon!
