Lovely hosts Paolo and Nid have created a peaceful garden setting in the lovely village of Thaton. Only 5 bungalows with 2 swimming pools, private balconies and little garden lounge platforms, this place invites visitors who want to unwind. When you're ready to explore there are tour options available. We negotiated a tailor-made half day trip to Wat Thaton, drive... More

We spent 4 days in Paulo and Nid's guest house. The welcome was warm and the service was professional.We could discover authentic Thailande. The rooms are charming bungalows in luxuriant gardens. The food cooked by Nid is delicious ! Eve & Benoit & Emma

We spent just 1 night at the old tree's house but we enjoyed the place. Paulo and his wife are very nice, the food is great with an nice view from the restaurant. The rooms in a middle of a nice garden with a pool are nice, very clean. You can feel a special atmosphere, like being at home.

We stayed here for 4 nights before heading to Koh Samui. Originally had three nights booked but immediately extended our stay an extra night after seeing the place. The location is on a hillside just outside the small town of Thaton, which is in easy walking distance for shopping and dining. The bungalow was very clean, well decorated, and had... More

This is a good value hotel. Stayed in one of the smaller bungalows which was clean, well equipped and comfortable. We ate dinner and breakfast at the hotel which was enjoyable. Staff/owners were friendly and attentive. For the price I can certainly recommend this accomodation.

We stayed here for one night in the double bungalow, with our 3 kids. This is more of a couples romantic hotel than a family spot, so we urged our children to be on their best behavior. The swimming pool is lovely but tiny, and there is no A/C in the bungalows. That said, the fans work well, and the... More

This lovely landscaped property has only a handful of bungalows all set in glorious gardens with the most lovely flowering scrubs, trees and plants. Besides the small swimming pool there is also a pond surrounded by lush foliage and with a small cascade of water so it sounds peaceful and lovely especially from the large deck of the bungalow that...

After you cross the bridge going out of Tha Ton, watch for a sign on your left that says "Old Tree's House." Turn left and go up the gravel road. Park and walk into the gardens. In the cool shade, you'll see exotic plants with lush colorful blossoms, backed by a thousand shades of green. You'll hear the gurgling of... More

“I was not in the other bungalows. They are all in the lovely gardens. Take a higher priced one if you want large. Ours had a very large bed and a single bed with mosquito nets. A lovely room.”
