I stayed at here twice during a week to visit friends who were staying here.
The owners are friendly & helpful.
I stayed in two different bungalows , a 500 baht double that had a nice bathroom & comfy bed. The Only bugger with this bungalow was finding ones way once darkness arrived with very poor path lighting & lack of sunlight during the day due to it being directly under another bungalow and the over grown surrounding undergrowth.
The other was a 800baht family bungalow with one double bed downstairs & two small small single beds upstairs. All beds had mozzie nets which was imperative as the bungalow only has shutters. The ground floor balcony shutters were impossible to secure due to the latches being either broken or misaligned. Luckily I had a heavy duty cable tie to secure them from the inside whilst I was beaching it during the day.
Another issue was most of the path light bulbs & bungalow light bulbs were blown. Thankfully most of the surrounding bungalows were empty so i could borrow light bulbs to bring light to the path & my bungalow :)
This bungalow was located on the rocks at the seas edge with an awesome outlook. It even had a huge beautiful 1 metre long lizard wondering about (Don't fear it's harmless & more scared of us)
