A welcoming traveller crash pad
Maggie’s is a rambling homestay in an old wooden Thai house a short walk from the centre of Prachuap Khiri Khan’s beach.
It’s a homestay in the true nature of the word and feels more like you’re staying over at a friend’s house rather than just passing through. There’s a large and very well shaded garden area littered with tables and seating and a large platform with some well-aged axe-cushions that are ideal to pass away a day or so in. There’s also a communal kitchen for those who want to cook themselves or just serve up some cheap Thai takeaway. There’s a few longer-stay guests who help to give it a welcoming vibe, further helped by the occasional group BBQ. Rooms are all share bathroom and come in two main flavours -- in the house and in a newer concrete building to the rear. If the house fits your budget go with those as while they are a bit overpriced, the rooms are spacious and very clean with comfortable bedding and some have air-con (should you need it). The cheaper rooms are totally forgettable, but difficult to complain at that price. Bathrooms throughout were clean and well kept. This is an old-school traveller resthouse and will certainly appeal to those looking for a more social, personable place to stay. Free WiFi also helps. There are bicycles and motorbikes for hire -- the bikes are ok, but we’d recommend hiring a motorbike elsewhere. Owner Maggie rounds out an excellent package. Recommended.
