“Beautiful Beach House Right over the Ocean! Great Escape to Paradise!”

people found this review helpful

We absolutely loved staying in this house! Kasem and Nok took wonderful care of us, were great at answering our questions, and even went grocery shopping for us at the market for no extra charge. Nok was willing to cook for us (for 300 baht per adult and 150 for children), but we ended up being gone most evenings and just catching dinner on our own. The home was clean, inviting, and with beautiful views from every room. The kitchen was well equipped but could use some extra utensils. We stayed for 3 nights during low season which was just perfect. You can rent scooters for driving around the island for 250 baht, but because our party was so large (7 of us) we rented a scooter with a side car (500 baht per day) for all of us to sit in and oh my what an awesome adventure that was! We loved it! We drove all over the island exploring every road we could and saw some amazing and beautiful beaches and for the most part had the beaches all to ourselves! We loved stopping to shop at the markets for some shopping, driving out to the pier, and swimming at every beach we could find. The island is just a paradise of untouched beauty! We didn't run into a single tourist all day! We also took a long tail boat 5 island tour while there to the Hong islands (totally recommended) but found the prices for the tours to be a bit on the expensive side. We were able to work a deal with a local though and got a better deal. Hong island was our favorite as we were the ONLY people on the beach, it has a really cool cave, is right next to a lagoon, and has a National park. Not to miss! Our favorite beach our entire 12 day trip! Kayaking is also available on Hong Island but you pay 200 baht per person to get into the park. The taxi from the pier to the house is about a 10 minute drive and we paid 200 baht for our whole family. But getting your own transportation is definitely the way to go! There is a GREAT little restaurant about 5 minutes (walking) from the beach house and it is fantastic. They have pancakes and french toast with honey that still make our mouths water and every Thai dish we had was excellent. Best Massaman our whole trip. So yummy! There is also an Italian restaurant that has wonderful pastas and a restaurant run by a German man named Frank that was really good too. ATM's are on the island but there are only 3 of them so bring lots of cash! Most places do not take cards. We absolutely loved our time on the island though and loved that it was secluded and tourist free! If you want to relax and enjoy a beautiful place. This is the place to go! Only complaints were the hard beds (which are almost everywhere), no washing machine, and no A/C (but its an open Thai style home so that would be impossible). Other than that. It is a magical and wonderful place! We loved it!

“Well positioned, well equipped shame about the uncomfortable beds and unsightly rubbish around the entrance.”
Reviewed 26 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We loved this place but it had two points that let it down, the first was the rubbish around the entrance - so easy to clear away and second the poor quality mattresses. By the end of the second night's stay my back was killing me - others in our group felt the same.
This is a wonderful place to stay. The scenery is idyllic - how many places do you know that are built on stilts out on the water? The facilities, the hospitality of the host, the roominess of the property and the overall ambiance all at an extremely affordable price make it well worth visiting - just sort those beds out and clear the rubbish away!

“Beautiful in every way!”
Reviewed 26 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

we were fortunate to have 6 nights at the waterhouse in april 2014 and as a resident of thailand and a frequent beach traveller, i have never come across a place that is so perfect. the house is beautiful, charming and relaxing with the ebb and flow of the daily tide, Nok, the host was charming, thougthful and knowledgeable. we ate out and we ate in, thanks to Nok's family for preparing us a local meal with freshly caught prawns. hired mbikes so toured the whole island and visited most of the local communities and beaches. no fault, just heaps of praise, thank you all.

“Best place to relax while in paradise”
Reviewed 12 February 2014 for a stay in December 2013

The waterhouse on Koh Yao Noi is the kind of place you'll always remember and want to come back to. Built right on the water, the tides come in and out creating the most relaxing atmosphere you could imagine. The waterhouse is modern and beautifully designed, with all the amenities and comforts of home. The view from the deck is incredible. If you are like us, you'll spend a lot of time on the deck playing games, relaxing or watching the tiny black crabs at low tide ...

The host Karim, treated us like family and helped us plan our tours, find restaurants, order mopeds (which are a must on Koh Yao) and even made us a birthday cake (as one member of our group was celebrating a birthday). We could not have hoped for a better house and host for our trip to Koh Yao Noi, a true island paradise.

The island is perfect for nature lovers, as it is mostly undeveloped. We loved our excursion to Haad Yao "long beach". There is a restaurant within walking distance of the waterhouse which is called Kaya. You must eat there, as Kaya is an incredible cook. The food is prepared in front of you, and is very fresh and flavorful.
