Good value in a quiet spot
At the end of a quiet lane off Soi 51, Pool 51 Villas is an excellent family-run choice for anyone seeking a plush room and a swimming pool for under 1,000 baht.
Rooms are set in a single-floor building that faces a small pool, with little benches, ceramic sheep and rocking horses scattered around the garden. Each room comes with a small patio, comfortable bed on sturdy dark-wood frame, TV, fridge, soft lighting, good-size modern bathroom and full-size sofa -- a welcome surprise in this price range. A relaxing terracotta patio is shared among guests. Service is excellent, with the owners treating customers more like house guests. The location on a quiet residential street puts you within a five-minute walk of the beach and all of the eating and drinking options on Soi 51 and Naeb Kehardt. For slightly more cash, Evergreen Boutique Hotel is a similarly intimate choice with a pool that caters specifically to golfers, though anyone is welcome.
