“our best ever family reunion holiday”
Reviewed 30 December 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We have family in both hemispheres, so meeting in 'the middle' for a family reunion holiday was ideal . . . and Mountain Beach Retreat (and Leelawadee next door - we needed two to fit us all) was perfect. As everyone else attests, Ian and Theresa are excellent hosts (they meet your every need) and for us, with our range of ages of the children, having villas exclusively ours (rather than a resort with other guests) was a hit. We all loved it. We hired bikes and self drive silaks for nearby adventuring and minibuses for outings further afield (Ian, Theresa and Mr Wanlops organise, as well as airport pick ups) - can thoroughly recommend the Vana nava water park, the cruise on the Mai Thai and Khao Takiab (monkey) mountain the Hua Hin night market as day trips . . . and more. Can also thoroughly recommend just chilling in MBR - pool, relaxing ambience, games, karaoke, bar, fans etc. Love Thai food and we did go other places, but best was Wone just down the road, and Mr Sing's beach bar (he will also collect and deliver you home in his personal songtow) . . . both make the best food, at unbelievably inexpensive prices . . and will also deliver. And masuers with magnificent hands will come and spoil you in the MBR sala! Just ask Ian and Theresa and come enjoy the best holiday ever.

Stayed here in August 2015 and was very impressed. The villa is as good as the pictures make it look. We were a mix of westerners and Thais and everyone had a great time. Ian and his wife were great as they were there if we needed anything but didn't impose themselves (judging it spot on). The villa has everything you could need and having two kitchens plus a BBQ the cooking options are endless. The pool is a very decent size and being able to enjoy it night and day went down really well. The only thing I would mention is that the villa is a little remote (this I liked) however it does mean you need to get transport to enjoy the local area and get to the supermarket. This for us was sorted by a quick call to Ian the second night and in the morning a rental arrived, brilliant! I had my sat nav with me so getting around was easy (Hua Hin being about 30 min drive away). I would and probably will be returning here.

After visiting Mountain Beach Retreat last year, we couldn't wait to go back. So we booked again for this year.
It was just as good as last year, so peaceful and relaxing. Ian and Teresa have added a Thai kitchen which is fantastic. Although we only cooked one time. We tended to eat at Whon's shack just five minutes walk away. Her Thai green curry is worth the travel alone. I had it 7 days out of 11. Where else can you get one for 80 pence.
The pool is perfect, nice depth and size complete with under water seating to sit and relax on.
We hire scooters from Mr woo and explored the local area and coast which was good fun. The roads are empty so no danger.
I would recommend MBR to anyone who wants a peaceful holiday. if you want disco's etc this is not the place for you.
Will we go again? absolutely, just need to figure out when.

“Pictures don't do it justice!”
Reviewed 7 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

As a large family party of 10 adults and five children this certainly ticks all boxes for its facilities, value and space. Set in a real Thai village with golf buggies ( available for rental) to take the wee short journey to beach ( a must for the small children) and the excellent restaurants and bars. Your local
Tesco store is only a short drive away or like us taxi there and back ( if not hiring vehicle) . It provides all away from home facilities so no having to drag the iron, hairdryer or music system with you. Washing machine and dryer plus dishwashers make for an easy time so to enjoy your relaxation a lot more. The BBQ is ideal for a large group and the bar area provides a great setting to enjoy your day around the pool ( if you choose). This is a real treasure find and nothing is a problem for owners Ian and Theresa who will assist you if needed throughout your stay. We certainly enjoyed every moment of our stay ( 2 weeks) and the ambiance of this place is like a breath of fresh air.

“What a fantastic place and location to stay.”
Reviewed 31 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Mountain Beach Retreat is in a quiet location in a Thai Village. There is a wonderful aura about the place, noticable from the moment you arrive.
Ian and Teresa have thought of everything, when you arrive there are tea/ coffeemaking facilities in every room (including the tea, coffee and powder milk) so you can have a hot drink while unpacking.
The rooms are spacious with a choice of double or single beds. All have onsuit shower and toilets. The beds are comfortable (they are firm but thats how we like them) Each room has a ceiling fan and air conditioning.
The outside area is superb, there is a lovely pool with 6 seats in it so you can sit and read or have a snack & drink. The rest of the outside area has a bar area, gas BBQ and plenty of tables and chairs to sit at. There are also 4 ceiling fans to keep you cool. I have to say we never used the inside lounge, we sat outside all the time. But the lounge is well furnished will TV etc and of course air con.
Eating wise there is a small shop 150mtrs away. Wone sells most things you will want. Beer, food, icecream etc. She also cooks wonderful Thai food. Her Thai Green Curry is to die for and only 40 Bhat (0.80p) She will cook most things you want and will get things in for you. She even sells the fuel for your scooter if you hire one.
Location wise, if you are after disco's etc, this is not the place for you. If you want to chill out and get about either in a car or on a scooter then you will not find better. You can watch the cows walking past each morning and evening. You are a 10 minute scooter ride to the beach road, with a selection of bars, restaurants and massage shops. All are reasonably priced in comparison to Hua Hin, there they cater for the tourists and charge accordingly.
Ian and Teresa are two wonderful people, they will do anything for you to make sure you have an enjoyable time. If there are any hic ups they are dealt with immediately. They will help you with hiring cars, scooters or organise taxi's or anything else you want. We cannot speak highly enough of them. There is also free wifi, so you can keep in touch with back home and the news if you want.
Would I recommend Mountain Beach Retreat to a friend, absolutely.
Would I go back again, absolutely, we are trying to working out when we can go back already.
All I can say is, book it, you really will not regret it.
