Quiet location, away from the other tourists. Private pool for the family to enjoy. Large open plan kitchen/dinning room with big fridge/freezer. Free round trip transportation, And a friendly 'Aunty' who you could call on if you needed any other help.
It is about 10-15mmin drive from anywhere: the beaches, the supermarket, etc (the airport a little longer), which is great if you wanted a little peace, but close enough not that have to waste too much time getting to and fro.
We even had a local elephant and rider walk past the house.
Just 1min walk away is a 'local' restaurant, if you can call it that, but you can pick up cheap chicken/beef rice or noodles if you wanted (they weren't bad).
Don't rely on the small stores about 5 min walk away, on the main road, for anything but the simpler items.
The private pool was perfect for our 7 year old (good swimmer), our 1.5 year old and 3 year old needed to be watched but it was fantastic for them to be able to jump straight in after breakfast, rather than production need if staying a resort/hotel.
The pool isn't a lap pool but great for the kids to play around in, and it has a little bench/seat for the smaller kids to stand on, but it does have a very deep end. The pool man comes twice a week to clean it.
gas stove top with 2 elements, microwave, toaster and kettle/jug. Had the essential cookware needed for a family for dinning. Coffee, tea, salt and sugar, but it would have been better if it also had a few more food items especially if you arrived later in the evening, (such as cooking oil, a few eggs, milk etc)
The beds were fine, bathrooms attached, nice showers. A safe is provided (with keys available if you (or your kids) lock it accidently). Air conditioners and ceiling fans. The rooms are dark, so no creak of dawn wake ups.
2 scooters are available, but with a family with 3 kids we choose to take the free round trips option, where a driver (Aunty Ree) would collect us from the house and take us anywhere we wanted, and when we needed to be picked up we would call her and in 10min she would be there. Pick ups should be done before 5pm or a fee might be charged, otherwise just take a local taxi. (remember to take a map and name of the Villa with you)
(our first trip to the supermarket Aunty Ree helped us get a 'sim' card that we could use to call her on, they tend to use the free app 'Line' and not 'Whatsapp' which would also do the trick)
If you plan to take a day trip to the islands, just pay for a private water taxi, yes this cost a lot more but you wont be rushed on and off others islands.
We stayed here as it is situated away from the hustle and bustle of the Main Street of Ao Nang but close enough to get to with the included scooters!!
Fully self contained modern accommodation with great privacy but close to local restaurants to dine out if want to.
Pam assisted with booking tours and collection from these tour operators come straight to the door!!
Wonderful hosts and will definitely stay here again when we come back!!
This was our first time visiting Krabi and we loved it. Our accommodation hosts were very helpful in assisting us to plan our tours and we had the use of a scooter the whole time too. The accommodation was amazing. It was very modern and tucked away in a quiet area which was only a ten minute scooter ride away from the beaches and tourist areas. We ate at some of the nearby restaurants our hosts had recommended and the food was delicious and cheap. I would highly recommend staying here if you like peace and quiet but also nearby access to Krabi nightlife and beaches.
Stayed here at the end of May with my wife and 2 of our friends. We really enjoyed the house! Even though the weather wasn't the greatest while we were there, it was so nice to have a nice new house to be able to relax at! It looks exactly as it does in the pictures which is really nice!
The pool was awesome too! We assumed it would just be a tiny little pool just a couple feet deep but its actually a really nice size and even has a deeper end (6.5 ft I think) and has lights for swimming at night. It is in a great location with cool mountain views on each side and it's a quiet area which was really nice!
Michael and Pam were super helpful and nice the whole time! They suggested places to go and offered to help us with booking day trips and excursions. It was really nice to have the motorbikes as part of the rental. They were very helpful with the bikes and even took extra time to come back and help us after we had some trouble with our bikes on the first day.
The house is less than a 10 minute drive to the main town and beaches and the furthest beach we drove to is only 20 minutes away. The house is perfect for 2 couples, a family, or a group of friends. It is very clean, new, and nice inside and out. The driveway has an automatic gate and you can park your bikes/car inside. It was great to have the washing machine and a fully stocked kitchen too!
We would highly recommend this place and hope to travel back again soon!
