The White House was disappointing because it had so much potential given its location. It is in a much quieter part of the island than areas further north. To start with the positives, it has a number of duplex bungalows located close to a nice beach. There is a pool with towels available. It also has a bar and restaurant located on site. However the rooms have seen better days. We found them small and poky and a little bit dirty. Service at the resort was patchy, perhaps it's better outside peak season. We had to ask for toilet rolls and bed sheets that had been forgotten when our room was cleaned. We didn't eat at the resort, preferring to eat at neighbouring restaurants. Overall the room felt overpriced compared to other resorts we'd booked in SE Asia.

Very Nice And caring owners, especially The lady!

Good location, near the beach. Only 30% of the island got beaches...

You can pay with CC And let the food and drinks be add to the bill

Can have laundery done!

Location is to far to walk to Lonely beach or bang bao. A taxi Will cost you 50 bht a person, one way.

The rooms are small And noting special, if you look at the price.

No Place to put the clothes

The shower didn't have mutch pressure

The staff is nice, but slow. 2 times we made the effort to get food orders.

You can hear a lot of sound from a bar nearby

This is actually my second time at the White House. Last time I visited was two years ago with a friend for a couple of nights (on NY-eve). This time I'm travelling by myself. I came by bus from Cambodia, and was awaiting a warm 'welcome back' from the owner. She made me feel like I never left :)

I was hoping to end my last few days of traveling by doing absolutely nothing except reading, sleeping, swimming and eating. And I did exactly that. It was great, just what I needed after a month of intense traveling.

The staff is wonderful, the breakfasts are still the same (still good) and the view is amazing. Sunset every night.

My room was pretty basic. I never had one of the bungalows, so can't tell you anything about them, but the standard rooms are fine. Don't expect anything fancy, but it's clean, has a good bed to sleep in and a hot water shower (just coming from Cambodia, I really appreciated the hot water :).

When I was here on NY two years ago, the owner did everything she could to make it as special as possible. Asking about our wishes for dinner and just going that extra mile. She said that we would always remember her and that night, which turned out that she was right, since I came back..

I just remembered that she took great care of me the last time when I was completely bruised from my trekking on the mountain (don't wear All Stars.) and when I got stuck with a fever. She is just awesome. Really.

If you're looking for a super fancy place to stay, maybe you're not in the right place, but if you're looking for some peace, away from the white sand & lonely beach madness, give it a go. The staff will make you feel at home.

I would go back a third time without hesitating.

Stayed here four nights in August. We arrived at the tail end of the long weekend of Mother's Day for Thailand and were able to negotiate a discounted low-season longer-stay rate of THB 1000 for the standard rooms and 1200 for the bungalows. Originally planning on switching to the bungalows after our first night, we decided to spend the entire time in the standard rooms. The standard rooms are large, bright (white walls, white tile floors) with a big floor to ceiling window. Water was super hot, aircon worked and tv had the standard couple of Thai channels. The room was clean and cute with some artwork and coloured linens. Our only complaint was that the large balconies overlook the parking lot. We decided not to move to the bungalows since they were smaller and were a little darker with a smaller window, however having porches looking out to the ocean would have been nice. The main lady running the resort was very friendly and welcoming and checked with us multiple times if we needed anything. The infinity pool was medium in size, but perfect given the lack of other patrons. They've set up nice seating areas – loungers by the pool, loungers on a raised beach platform, cushion seating right over the beach and dinning area by the beach bar. The bar played great music during the day which added to the ambiance. At night, they light up the palm trees around. The restaurant served good food, and at a reasonable price (most mains 90-150). Breakfast had the five options and size-able portions: full American breakfast, asian breakfast, fruit/museli etc. Wifi was fast and worked very well in the standard rooms, bungalows closest to the beach had a weaker signal. The beach is narrow and not long, but its sandy in front of the resort. There's a little cordoned off area at the resort nearby for safe swimming even during the monsoon season. The resort was well run and considering our discount, we felt we got good value out of our stay. My only warning is to not come expecting a full 4 or 5 star resort experience. This is a small resort and not a luxury 5 star hotel. Also, if you do book a bungalow, try to get one of the front row bungalows that have direct views of the ocean as there was a second row of bungalows that seemed hidden behind and had no views. All in all, we had a great time and really enjoyed our time here.

Room tip: Most people go for the bungalows, but unless you can get the front facing ones with ocean-views, consider checking out the standard rooms which although overlook a parking lot, are larger and brighter than the bungalows.
