If you're looking for flashpacker digs beachside and are comfortable with a more backpacker style of standards, look no further than Seaview Sunrise.
Set at the far northern end of Haad Rin Beach, as far away from the party as you can be without climbing onto the rocks, Seaview offers very well priced absolute beachfront bungalows. Bungalows are spacious and easily sleep three (they come with a double bed and a single bed standard), have clean bungalows and balconies offering a terrific viewpoint over the beach. They are a bit rough around the edges -- in the beachfront room we saw a guest had clearly tried to punch their way through the wall (unsuccessfully) and the beds are a lumpy, but at this pricepoint, considering what you'll pay for an air-con box elsewhere on Haad Rin, are a steal. They have cheaper huts in a row behind it and cheaper again further back -- these are not so hot and not such great value -- we'd be aiming for beachfront or nothing. Very friendly and welcoming staff round out a solid deal. Reservations over Full Moon Party are essential. Recommended.
