I checked into the bungalows for two nights being sold the deal on Krabi pier. At 500baht per night I wasn't expecting The Ritz.
You are sea taxied off to the other side of the island (20mins away) and it is a stunning little beach. All wooden huts and fairy lights in the evening- total peace. The staff are lovely and so friendly, you really feel away from it all here. At the back you have the jungle and directly at the front, the ocean.
But! The rooms are BASIC. Sadly. No flushing loo, cockroaches in the bathroom, no electricity until 5pm (!), no WIFI or phones, no windows (only shutters) and just a very typical beach shack.
It sounds a bit strange me saying I'd recommend it after my last paragraph BUT if you want total peace, on a private beach with great staff and don't mind roughing it a bit- go!
Personally, I need a bit of luxury but it was an amazing place to hang out and drink cocktails and watch a fire show put on by staff. :-)
