Owners house has beach front aspect, and all bungalows are set back from beach, so don't expect to walk out bungalow and onto sand. However just a short hop skip and jump so not an issue. Bungalows are quite nice, although the whole wet room shower is always a bit of a pain. The beach and location is beautiful, really nice and quiet. Eat at Cafe Uno down the road (head East on a scooter and it is on the right hand side, cheap and very nice thai dishes). Grab a scooter out on road 150Baht p/d

Glad you guys enjoyed your stay! Safe travels...


The location is in between the main street and the beach, there are a bunch of individual cabins, with a little patio deck and inside a nice bed, a TV and full bathroom. Although fairly small it was pretty nice. The air conditioner was leaking but he provided a bucket for the night that I stayed there. The owner also washed an outfit for my flight home (no charge), in his own washer and hung them to dry at my cabin. That was super awesome, a little touch you would never get with a hotel.

Cheers Todd, It was a pleasure meeting you mate... Hope to see you next time you're over champion! Safe travels


Chris and Apple were very accommodating they could not do enough for us. the accommodation is basic but very clean and comfortable I would stay there again . The location is great and quiet and very relaxing. And the chill out bar is recommended to quench the thirst .

G'day guys! It was an absolute pleasure,we hope to see you again really soon!


Nice quiet beach 15 seconds from cabin. Toilet a bit awkward to sit on since its so close to the wall. Air conditioner a bit noisy. Otherwise awesome location by beach and very relaxing and not crowded. Feels kind of like a home stay nice and comfortable. Hostel bar is across the street. Restaurants around a bit pricey but we found a thai place just by the hostel bar with reasonable prices.


This place is awesome. Chris and Apple were very nice and helpful, the location was great, and the rooms were perfect. This is a great spot to stay if you're looking to unwind. The location is close to many good western restaurants as well many good bars and Thai food restaurants. The beach is pretty quiet near the bungalows, which was great. I would definitely stay here again!


Basic bungalows near by beach. Don't expect too much. Good value for money. Shops, restaurants and airport very close.


Chris and Apple are great hosts, they couldn't have been more helpful. We hired a bike from them and they also helped us organise travel over to koh pangahan. The accomodation they offer is clean and comfortable and their location on the beach is stunning. We would recommend the boardroom bungalows to anyone and we would definitely stay here again.

Rock On!!! Love ya's... Miss ya's!!!


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.

EXCUSE ME SIR? You failed to arrive! Our staff waited all afternoon but no sign of you... Thanks


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!
