Toy’s guesthouse offers a truly idyllic setting with a warm, homestay-style atmosphere. Visitors are immediately met by impossibly large and fragrant flower bushes, a trait that extends throughout the spacious and beautiful grounds.
With only a small white house visible from the main road, the guesthouse appears deceptively small at first glance. While the cheapest rooms and restaurant are found here, most rooms are in the form of simple bamboo bungalows perched atop a high peninsular hill flanked by the vast Mekong on one side and a small tributary on the other. The tributary is crossed via a bamboo footbridge that extends from the stilted open-air restaurant. Bungalows are simple and are beginning to show their age, not least because some have been almost entirely covered in puffy flower bushes. Each comes with soft double bed, mosquito net, fan, basic cold-water bathroom and front porch with hammocks. The riverside scenery is magnificent.
The guesthouse also offers a couple of single rooms in the main building that rely on shared bathroom facilities. A few better-equipped air-con editions were being built during our most recent visit. These are closer to the road so don’t enjoy the tranquil setting of their bamboo counterparts, but it’s far from a shabby set up. The owners are beyond friendly -- they even treat first-time guests like old friends. Along with free WiFi and boat tours for a reasonable 250 baht per person, they offer a few motorbikes and bicycles for rent. Highly recommended.
