Out between the highway and the main road, on a dirt road leading off Soi 25, low-key Nature Home Guesthouse has something of a mom and pop homestay-ish vibe to it.
Chalets, either air-con or fan, are set in a lovely orchard-like garden-- the owners are happy to let you pick whatever happens to be in season at the time. The rooms themselves are quite cosy, with reasonably sized beds and a standard no-frills private bathroom with hot shower. Chalets are well spaced throughout the garden and all come with private balconies. The guesthouse restaurant is officially open 09:00-20:00, with good Thai food at reasonable prices, though during low season service can be a bit minimal. The owners are friendly, and though with minimal English is spoken they’ll do their best to provide info and help as much as they can. You’ll find tour information and maps on the restaurant walls plus bicycles and motorbikes available for hire. This is a cosy spot with good value rooms, but the only drawback for us was the location down a fairly lengthy dirt track off the main road, around half way between town and the caves. It's a bit of a walk to either and convenient for neither -- it won't be really practical if you don’t have your own transport.
