The location couldn’t be better -- the market and town centre are a short stroll away but because it’s so close to the river the homestay’s canalside terrace sees little foot traffic compared to other nearby options. River views through wide windows in the top floor rooms are an added bonus. Rooms come in a few sizes, but all feature rich dark wood walls with tastefully placed framed Thai art and polished teak floorboards that are a joy to walk on with bare feet. Firm beds are on the floor and draped in mosquito nets, so you can sleep with the huge screen-free windows open at night -- don’t be surprised if a firefly or two buzzes in. Rooms also have small TVs, free WiFi and air-con, but hot-water bathrooms are shared. The only drawback here is that sleeping in could be a challenge as walls are thin, though this is the case at most of Amphawa’s accommodation. The young couple who run the homestay typically cater to weekending Thais, but all are welcome. It’s 25% off room rates on weekdays.
