We spent 3 full days in Baan Moon Fisherman's villa and I must say that it was not sufficient to discover all the surroundings.The shops are a little bit far, but not so much (25 mn walk, or 5 mn taxi). Two Thai restaurants, cheap and good food, at less than 2 mn. Other ones on the beaches nearby.
We arrived at night and we have appreciated to see Ian who has given us many informations, and to find beers, soft drinks, fruits and every thing for the next morning breakfast.Very helpful.
The house was amazing and very pleasant to leave in, especially on the "deck" in front of the canal.Amazing also to go to the beach with the canoe at our disposal. Good air conditioning in the 2 rooms, clean and convenient bathrooms. But, from the upper level, you need to go on the ground floor to get the bathroom. It may be somehow difficult at night due to the slope of the stairs between both levels.We manage it with grand-parents at lower level!!
This house is vey convenient for 4 people. It works also for 4 people + 2 children, but it is necessary to have one children in each room. There is a sofa which can be open in the upper room, but the one in the other room cannot be open which is not so convenient. Nevertheless, we were 4 adults and 2 children (16 and 13 years old) and we have managed it without problems.
We have not seen too much of Koh Chang, but for sure, this is a good destination in Thailand, less crowdy and noisy than Phuket. And Baan Moon Fisherman's villa is a good place to stay,
Excellent in every way. Situation, comfort, all first class. Ian was very helpful. We had a great few days unwinding after a stressful tour in Dubai and Bangkok.
what a great place, we are a family of 6 who stayed here for a week and what can we say but wow!!! superb location in a tranquil area of Koh chang, great restaurants either side if it and a great little bar not far away too, short canoe trip to long sandy beaches. Everything you need in the house and Ian was superb meeting us on arrival giving us the heads up about the area and also arranging our transport from the border to Koh chang and again back to Bangkok. Would highly recommend staying here and would hope to do so in the future.
Just spent four nights at ban moon and I would throroughl endorse the great reviews. Ian arranged transfers for us with ease and the property was just as great as the photos. Stayed with wife and seven year old son and caneoiing each evening yo the resteraunts was great. Swimming with the elephants in the north of the island was the real highlight but the five island snorkelling was also good. The appartmentvwas well equipped and came with lots of extras like coffee, bread, water etc. Great touches.
We stayed on our honeymoon with friends. We arrived to a beautiful house, with beer, bread, fruit and many treats - which was a perfect welcome for our late arrival. Ian met us at the house on check in and provided a plethora of useful information and maps.
The house is positioned on the riverfront and restaurants are close. We used the kayak to get to the beach and explore the river.
We also hired scooters from the property 2-3 houses up and they were kind enough to loan us fishing rods for the duration of our stay - so we repaid them in mangrove jack fish caught from our back deck! It was awesome. No luck with the crab trap though.
Some things to know:
The house next door is a working fisherman's house - they dry prawns on the deck daily. We didn't mind, the smell wasn't too bad it is added an "authentic" charm to the place.
The house is advertised as 3 bedroom, but the 3rd bedroom isn't much to get excited over and it is devoid of air-conditioning. I would recommend treating this property as a two bedroom house that can sleep 3 in each room (sofa bed and lounge).
We LOVED the house, the position and the host Ian. He helped with transport and any enquiries we had. We will be back!! Thank you for having us!!

Just back from a lovely stay at Baan Moon, Koh Chang. This was the highlight of our 2 week vacation to Koh Chang and Bangkok.
Everything from the initial Ibooking to the transport & checking in was handled effortlessly by Ian, the owner.
He gave us a tour of the property, plus comprehensive maps to show us the best spots to visit and highlighted his restaurant choices.
We're pretty independent so spent time exploring by hire car, that Ian Ian arranged for us.
All in all a great few days
We are half way through our 9 day stay at Baan Moon Villa and are absolutely loving it! There was a change of management since when I booked, but Ian made us so welcome, by greeting us on arrival (he also helped organise our driver from bangkok)! He had stocked the kitchen with supplies of bread,coffee, milk, fruit, chips, soft drink and beer! He then offered to bring us 2 scooters to rent from him for a good weekly rate the next morning. It made everything so easy. Such a nice fellow. A few doors away either side of the villa are great restaurants, reachable by the canoe or 2 mins walking. The living space on the deck makes it feel like a houseboat, which is nicely decorated with all the things u could possibly need. And then a peaceful a/c sleep on comfy beds by night. The river is so pretty at night, and surprisingly quiet, so a perfect spot for a family. I highly recomend it for a relaxing home away from home!
