Loved this place. Very welcoming and helpful throughout from check in to check out. Accommodation is clean and spacious and bed is comfortable. Located a few minutes stroll from the beach and eating places. Charlie can help arrange trips but to be honest we just relaxed in the local area after travelling prior to arriving here. I would not hesitate...

My wife and I came here for a short three night stay over a weekend. First, I have to say that the owner Charly was incredibly helpful and accommodating in every regard. We wanted a nice calm getaway from the hustle and bustle of the big city and that is exactly what this place delivered. Room was great. Service was...

We spent our first three nights in Thailand here and really loved it. Charlie was really helpful, arranged a taxi to collect us from the airport for a reasonable price and allowed us to check in early and check out late at no extra charge! It's very well located, near all the shops and bars and 2/3 minutes walk from...

We stayed at papacrab for 2 weeks. Charly was very nice to us and gave us many tips on where to eat, where to see the market... The guesthouse is very clean and the room very convenient. The beach is just a 3 min walk from the guesthouse and the street is full of shops and restaurant of all kind....

Highly recommend I stayed for three days on my own, firstly Kamala is a great little village, PapaCrab's is in a fantastic location and excellent value for money. Charly couldn't have been more helpful, you can tell he loves what he does. The accommodation is really well looked after and reasonably priced, if you have any questions Charly is always...

We spent 5 days at Charly's and Koong's guesthouse and it was just unforgettable! They have been absolutely amazing as hosts and we felt like locals after these days. The rooms are super nice & cozy and the location is just perfect: nearby the beach but not at the main road where it can be crowed and loud. It was...

Just returned from a 3 week stay very very happy. Perfect location (50m from the beach on a road with lots of nice family bars, restaurants and shops yet peaceful at night) lovely room and great hosts. Kamala is a great town to base yourself in Phuket, very central, gorgeous unspoilt beach, very few large hotels and a nice balance...

Lovely little guest house. We stayed here for just over a week in early December. A very warm welcome from hosts Charly & Koong, who also gave great advice on where to eat/drink and how best to see the island. Quite small, but very clean and well-equipped rooms. Perfectly located for sunny days at the beach, as well as a...

Excellent position walking distance from beach and kamala main beach street, good wifi, Charly extremely helpful and always available. Room pretty tiny but clean and well maintained. A bigger bathroom would not be a bad idea.
