We arrived and the place was deserted. We waited for well over an hour before we had to go and look for somewhere else to stay.
Chris the owner is an awesome man! Very chill and down to earth kinda guy. The location is a 10 minute walk from big Buddha pier if you want to take the sea flower over to Haad Rin beach in Koh Phangan. Chris also owns a bar across the street, on Fridays there is a meat draw and a chance to win a growing pot of money!
The boardroom is right on a rather deserted and gorgeous beach. The rooms are spacious huts with enclosed bathrooms, fridge, and tv (though who would use a tv here is beyond me). Chris and Apple are incredibly welcoming and helpful--Apple even moved our hanging clothes inside to prevent them from gettin rained on after we had checked out. Would definitely stay here again.
Fantastic place to stay in Koh Samui. The owners were so accommodating and were able to give us help with anything we needed. Rarely have we felt so comfortable staying in a hostel booked online!

A lovely little place. Rooms are basic but clean and quite cute in individual huts. The location was great, with the end of the garden opening up onto a beautiful quiet beach.
We had 3 nights here. Its a row of 5 bungalows between their house (on the beach) and the road, facing next door. (currently a building site but noise only from 10-5.30 and not a problem). Warm welcome from Chris (auzzie) and his wife. They have a chilled out bar over the rd too. Chris even bought us dinner on the first night! Felt very safe as family present in day and security at night. Had some lovely beers on the beach at sunset. Fridge and TV in room. Sorry we didn't say bye Chris!
it is not fancy bungalow inside, but it is enough for your need to live next to ocean. It offers very peaceful environment, 2mins walk to the beach. the little balcony is nice to read in the morning. I really enjoy my time there. highly recommend!
Chris was about as welcoming as it gets -- thanks mate. The location is awesome, directly on top of a great beach. After one visit to Chaweng, we were very happy to be a few minutes away from the madness... and the Thai food across the street is delicious!! There's also a great French bakery for breakfast just a 2-3 minute walk away. Would absolutely stay here again.
We had a great time at the Boardroom! The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly--they helped book our activities, gave us great advice on things to do, and offered scooters and bicycles for rent. The beach here is certainly quieter than on other parts of the island, but it isn't completely dead. We thought this was perfect for a relaxing getaway. Bophut is about a 20-minute walk away, and you can get to many places on the island pretty easily if you rent a scooter.
Not a fan to be honest. Cheap and cheerful but the room was quite soulless with just a bed, a fan and a fridge. A bit like a prison cell. Didn't fell particularly welcome either, not genuine. Enquired about getting a fresh sheet for the bed and the response was less than satisfactory - most would say offensive and rude. Location was average, there's not much around. On the whole didn't really like Koh Samui. Only stayed 2 out of the 3 nights booked. Would I go back? What do you think? No thanks.
The nicest staff I have ever come across! At first, we were a little skeptical because our air conditioner was a little testy and the place looked a bot dodgy, but we ended up loving the place. Fantastic view, cheap scooter rentals and the owners, Chris and Apple are so easygoing and accommodating. Planned to stay for 2 nights, stayed for 4 and may be going back. I highly recommend going here!
Nice room with an access to a beach !! Very nice customers !
Top man Chris, had a brilliant time at your gaff!
A couple of steps away from beautiful Bo phut Beach, friendly, family run, clean bungalows with all the amenities.
I would definitly recommend that bungalows to everyone, because it´s worth the money. The location ist right next to the beach and Chris and his wife do really care about their customers.
Nice stay, bungalows right by the beach which is good and the beach is nice and quiet nobody trying to sell you stuff like at chaweng beach. Close to the pier for the ferry to koh panghan and about 20mins by taxi to chaweng for touristy shopping etc. This accommodation is fine if you're on a budget, nothing fancy but clean and comfortable.
Not a great place to meet other travellers and in quite an isolated part of Koh Samui, but right on the beach and the owner is really nice. Great if you just want to relax privately for a couple of days. Only really negatice thing is lots of mosquitos in bathroom. Maybe put mosquito nets over the windows? Also walking distance to ferry to and from Koh Phangan which is really handy
The bungalow was good. The bathroom was a little small but good for what we wanted. We were only there for one night but the owner was very nice and accommodating.

Lovely bungalows run by lovely people! Beach is 20 seconds walk away! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
If youre looking for a peacefully place very close to the beach, this is absolutely it. When you want to go to the more busier parts of Koh Samui you can simply rent a bike. Nice clean room! Would stay there again.
