Run by a sincere woman who has a dedicated following of guests who return every year, this small resort has an array of different rooms to suit most tastes.
The namesake Thai houses come with dark hardwood floors and walls, high ceilings, large windows and Thai wood carvings. These and the more straightforward but similarly comfy standard and beachfront rooms are equipped with TVs, fridges, hot-water bathrooms, ceiling fans and air-con. The Thai houses also have good raised porches, but the beachfront offerings come only with small patios that are more like doorsteps. Further back from the beach are a mix of budget bungalows, some made of wood and others bamboo, and some with one bed while others have two or three. The cheap room that we checked out was rather dark and had a warped wooden floor, but it was adequate for a night's sleep close to the beach. The cheaper rooms come with cold water, mosquito nets, ceiling fans and porches. Prices jump by 300 to 500 baht during peak season.
