“very quite environment, friendly staff” myself + 11 other friends had very comfortable stay. the place is in avery quite environment away from the city. we stayed in two studios beach front , everything like new condition very clean. we only regret it is one toilet serve 6 each but it is not big issue. paula and her staff are friendly and were able to offer their maximum.
if you are looking for a vacation away from the crowed this is the place.
“An excellent choice for your vacation” We were 5 families staying in the villa together for one week in February, and we had the most amazing time. With 2 pools, a movie room, spacious rooms, an excellent view and the most amazing thaifood we found no reason to leave the house very often and both adults and kids were entertained 24/7. The service in the villa was totally outstanding and nothing was too much of a hassle, they even arranged for us to have massage in the villa. The food cooked by Noi was the best thaifood we have had in Thailand. The staff was very helpful and so so nice and the best part is that they were so kind to our kids, my daughter cannot stop talking about Gorn, Noi and the other girls since we came home... Stefan, one of the managers of the villa, even arranged for babysitting one evening at a small cost! The villa is only 5 minutes from the Kamala beach, which is an excellent beach for small kids. To get to the beach we took a tuktuk, the preferred way of traveling if you ask our kids : ) or Gorn arranged with the driver to take us, very convenient. After our stay at Bannchangthai we moved to another hotel, which was a very bad decision since we all missed the villa very much and wished we had prolonged our stay. This was my second stay at the villa and I will for sure come back for a third time in a short time!
“Great position, off the tourist track and secluded” Great value, comfortable with its own outside sitting area, this was a good find. Though there was a a microwave, fridge and kettle, there wasn't much preparation area. Having made that comment, there were unbelievably cheap and good local shops and restaurants, so self catering wasn't necessary. Being situated in a largely untouristy area was a real benefit if you like the challenge of making yourself understood - we found it fun! There were interesting shops around, yet the property was set back through a private entry through gardens, so was secluded and quiet. The beach is about a ten minute walk and of course has the usual souvenir and local goods shops. There is a selection of transport, Bluebird taxis are the metered ones that we favour and we made sure that we had the number with us. Be careful of others. Overall, if you want a decent bed, simple and quiet surroundings this is excellent value. It has air conditioning which cools the room to a degree, but could be better. The English owner is happy to help but is not intrusive, and lives on the property..
