The bungalows at Free House are some of the cheapest options around if you’re looking for a resort with direct access to Bophut Beach.

A black sheep among the mostly large and expensive resorts found on this stretch of Bophut, Free House enjoys an excellent location around the centre of the beach and about a 10-minute walk west of Fisherman’s Village. A large restaurant serves quality Thai food beside the sand, with freestanding bungalows set in two rows that face one another across a central “garden” shaded by umbrella trees. While none have sea views, all come with hammocks and chairs on private porches.

Made of weathered wood with a metal roof and a few glass windows, the fan bungalow that we checked out had a firm bed on raised wood platform draped in mosquito net along with a soft lamp and tiny safe, which is unexpected for the price. Hot-water shower and Western-style flush toilet came in the brushed concrete bathroom. The room appeared clean, even if the walls had a few scratches, with no interior furniture but enough space to keep from tripping over luggage. The whitewashed concrete bungalows with air-con and thatch roofs were full but looked promising. Staff was friendly and WiFi is free.
