The Ban Koh Mook Nurse House sounds like some kind of medical facility, but in fact this small beachfront bungalow spot’s name comes from the fact that owner Mr Bell works in the village clinic—it’s a great little spot for a more homely and intimate experience.

The personable Trang native offers four sea-view woven-bamboo bungalows with thatch roofs fronting a small lawn with lots of greenery, and another one standing directly on the beach within a few metres of the surf at high tide. Each has a comfy bed draped in mosquito net along with soft lanterns, portable fan, decorations made from coconut shells and better-than-average bathrooms with proper sinks, flush toilets and cold-water showers.

Well-kept simple beach bungalows.

The seafront edition has a fishnet hammock attached but it’s only plastic chairs on the porches of other bungalows. Glass doors afford sea views direct from your bed, while windows on either side allow air to flow in.

Nurse House is set in a quiet spot within a three-minute walk of Ao Kuan and Muk’s most picturesque stilted village. As with most of Ao Kham and Ao Kuan, swimming is not possible here at low tide and it’s not great at high tide either, but the view is pretty and Sivalai Beach is a 15-minute walk to the east.

Relax with your feet in the sand.

The family staffers speak very little English; they’ll call Bell, who speaks clear English, if he’s not around when your questions get too complicated.

WiFi is free and the cook whips up a good range of Southern Thai dishes at the seaside kitchen and dining area.
