Great location right in the middle of all the nightlife. Room was cleaned everyday. Friendly staff. Beach towels supplied which was a big help. Free wifi. All good, highly recommended.

We only stayed for one night, but had an excellent time and would recommend this place without hesitation. The place is clean and comfy, the staff are very friendly and helpful, and you location is fantastic, right in the middle of town of Karon but at the same time just a stone throw away from the beach.

I planned to stay here as the start of my holiday, Greg had room for 4 nights and I had to find a follow-up. If I have had known in advance that they had such a nice guesthouse and staff I would have booked here much earlier so I could stayed here for the full 3 weeks.

The location of the guesthouse is perfect, in the centre of the city, but very close to the beach (2mn walk). It is in a lively street, but not a too busy street.

We stayed here for a couple of nights in October. The guest house is lovely and very nicely decorated. It's in a good location for all the sights and sounds of Karon, but this means unfortunately, there is occasionally some noise. It's not bad enough to ruin a night's sleep though! Lovely staff and very helpful. It was nice enough...
