“I am glad we decided to give vacation rentals a try!”

We usually stick to beachfront hotels and end up spending most of the vacation time lazing in the hotel beach! This year we decided to spend a part of our vacation in a place that will force us to step out to see the sights.... And boy are we happy!!! Baan ping Tara is a lovely clean compact comfortable villa for 4...we thoroughly enjoyed the pool and had some fun cooking up in the kitchen. The icing on the cake was Michael's (the villa owner) suggestions and maps to the most gorgeous beaches in Krabi... We had awesome fun zipping around to the beaches (Michael's secret beaches as we called them) in the scooters provided by the villa :)

Thanks for taking the time to post such a thoughtful review. Your family was easy to host and from the splashing around, I'm certain the pool was well used to break the heat. I hope we did our best to pass on relevant information based on what kind of holiday you were hoping for. Glad you enjoyed our secret beaches and complimentary scooters!!

“Private sanctuary”
Reviewed 26 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

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.

Location
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 Pool
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.

The kitchen
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 bedrooms
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.

Transportation
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)

Day trips
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.

Thanks for the review; we're glad you enjoyed your stay. You raved about every aspect of your stay except that groceries were not provided! While we strive to provide exceptional service, I must say that I find that expectation a little high for the price paid, which to most people represents real value.

“A little GEM!!!”
Reviewed 16 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

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!!

“Beautiful house in paradise!”
Reviewed 16 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

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.
