The location is amazing, 5 mins walk to the pier. There are many shops and restaurants around, and one can reach to everywhere easily.The guesthouse is very clean, no shoes in allowed in rooms, and there are towel carpets everywhere.
The rooms are all in great locations, right at the whole second floor above the Nemo guesthouse lobby, we can reach the owner family in 30 seconds. Rooms are quiet and hide in shade, so no worries about the heat. We booked the deluxe room in a great cost performance, much lower than other fancy hotels, but still everything we need: large bath room(really large, actually two rooms that forms a bathroom, so one can really relaxed when back from a whole day outdoor activities), a TV and DVD ahead of our bed, a very large wardrobe which allow us put many close that we bought in Thailand. There are lovely refrigerator, but we have no chance to use it as the food usually we finished them within the restaurant. oh, BTW, 20 meters away from Memo guesthouse(in the same street and same side), there is a restaurant called Baan Tai, small but testes great!
One more thing I must write in detail, the owners, the family (Philippe, Som and Ploy) are the most helpful and friendly staff I ever met. I booked their room in Jan. 2012 by only a few emails, and they didn't take any deposit from me. When we arrived at the guesthouse, the owner, Philippe gave us two cup of fresh orange juice made by themselves, and introduced his family members to me, making us feel so warm, a family atmosphere. And second day the mom of the family, Som (very helpful and professional travel agent), helped us book our first fishing trip, and the luckiest one! The day when we went fishing, we got a 33-Kg Sailfish!! And later we realized that, the caption of the boat is the most skilled one, therefore, we really believed that, if Som didn't book his boat for us, we may not be so lucky. Som also recommended another cost-effectiveness Thai message store for us, helped us relieve our pain after fishing.
Actually before moving to nemo guesthouse, we were learning diving at Crystal Diving Resort; compared with the cold water and bugs in Crystal (which may make people concentrate more on diving itself but not on life quality), memo guest house is a paradise....
Nemo guesthouse may be the cheapest guesthouse on Mae Head Beach of Koh Tao, but the rooms are great, nice bathroom, very confortable beds, with safe. If you want to save money, meanwhile maintain the residential quality, nemo guesthouse is what you are looking for.
The helpful staff will help you save money by giving you discount with every outdoor activity and meanwhile they help to choose the best activity organizers.
