Though not a great option for travellers looking to catch an early boat, it might interest those who have the time to kick back and explore the area. Located above the coffee shop, three large rooms come with high ceilings, soft queen mattresses draped in mosquito nets on hardwood floors, fretted wood walls, several screened windows, moveable fans in addition to air-con, TVs and shared hot-water bathrooms. A spacious garden has some tables and pavilions for relaxing out back, and an open-fronted coffee shop punctuated by antiques occupies the ground floor. The friendly staff whips up basic breakfasts for 50 baht along with excellent fresh coffee and Thai iced tea. The young barista was playing mainstream Western pop that clashed with the traditional decor when we passed through. The homestay mainly caters to young Thai guests and minimal English is spoken, but all are welcome.

Though far from the ferry piers, the location puts you within a quick walk of the aquarium and about 15 minutes from an outstanding seafood market. Motorbike rental is available for venturing to Khao Laem Ya and Haad Mae Ramphueng, both reachable after a five- to 10-minute ride from the homestay.
