    Everyone is friendly, great location but a challenge to get there. The three island boat tour is not worth the cost. The boat was very old and rough, the “snorkeling “ non existent and embarking and disembarking involved walking in knee deep water with mud and rocks.

    As per most of the reviews, this place is a hidden gem. Well worth the trip to get there! Oli the owner is lovely, makes you feel at home as soon as you arrive. Food is amazing and the view from the pier is incredible. Honesty policy was a nice touch. Plenty of activities to do, highly recommend the dragons crest hike. They also arrange a delicious packed lunch upon request. All in all a brilliant place to stay, one of the best I've stayed in during my travels. Thank you!

    If I could give 100/10 I would. This is an absolute gem. Set in mangroves but you can swim from the pier once the tide is in. Free bikes to cycle to beach. Easy day trips to the islands or Koh Yao. Bioluminent plankton to swim with at night. Owner Olli is an absolute gem and both his volunteers and kitchen staff are clearly really happy working here. Great food, very reasonable prices. We met loads of guests who were so happy to find this place after loads of time in Thailand. Do not hesitate!

    Olli and his team are excellent hosts and very friendly and helpful arranging anything for you including transport and day trips. The bungalows are situated in an idyllic location with beautiful views and are around half hour bus/ taxi from Krabi airport. Food and drink are available throughout the day of which you write in an honesty book and pay for at the end of your stay.

    Best place to stay if you are looking to be out of the noise and the whole touristic thing. The atmosphere and the people around is just great. The kayaks, the beach, the food at the restaurant. Great great place! You will feel in peace! Next time in Krabi, I'm going back!

    Nice place out of the city. Hammocks for chilling. And your own bungalow. Onsite food is a little more expensive for some things. Coffee is 6 times cheaper down the road. Otherwise easy and pleasant. Tidal bay, so would be nice if they wrote up the high tide somewhere. Filtered water is an awesome touch. Phosphorescent plankton in the bay.

    Very Good

    Owner and staff are exceptional. I felt very taken care of and welcomed here. A+ cleanliness. Unfortunately the door to my bungalow was falling apart and someone could of easily broken in and stolen my stuff if they wanted to. I am solo female traveler and this didn't make me feel safe at night. The room was also super basic which isn't a problem but it is quite expensive for what is offered. Transportation to get around was pricey. Nice place if it's in your budget but could find better value.

    Beautiful private area to swim and kayak. Isolated, restaurant is overpriced. No outside food allowed, charge for filtered water. I loved all the animals but saw dogs and cats using the sand/gravel as litterbox. Rented kayaks and went to recommended monkey beach and a monkey jumped on our kayak and bit my friend, be very careful. Paddled a mile back with her gushing blood. Owner didn’t really do anything to help. We worried about the poop all over causing more infection.
