Happy House

Big rooms down a quiet lane

What we say: 3.5 stars

Down a quiet lane that's a short walk from the pier, this newer split-level building is painted in colours resembling chocolate and strawberry ice cream. Decked out with a surprisingly charming pink theme, rooms have soft double beds, TVs, tables and chairs, and basic private bathrooms with cold-water showers and either squat or Western toilets (go on, be wild and go with the squat). Air-con rooms come with hot water. The cheapest fan rooms in the back of the building are tiny and not so inviting, but the larger fan and air-con editions represent solid value. These open on to a pleasant shared balcony punctuated by potted flowers. Though she doesn't speak much English, the owner is a friendly local woman whose young daughter often hangs around. Call or pop your head into the house across the street if nobody is at reception. To get here from the pier, walk straight south on the main road and take the first left, then follow the signs. If we were stuck in Pakbara for a night, we wouldn't hesitate to spend it here.
