This rental is located about 40 minutes drive south of Hua Hin, 3.5 hours south of Bangkok. The house is beautiful. I do not think the pictures do it justice. They are accurate, but the place was actually much nicer than I had expected. The rooms were spotless, the beach was lovely. The pool is tiny, but refreshing and clean. In our entire week here, we never saw a soul on the beach except for a local farmer walking his goats, and the workers next door, who climbed the coconut tree and brought us fresh coconuts. The owner was prompt in all her replies and took care of every detail of our trip for us. She arranged a cook for a few nights, per my request, and the food was the best we had anywhere! Absolutely delicious. Not super cheap, but restaurant priced.
If you are looking to get away from it all, this is the place for you. It is so isolated, that there was no place open to even walk to. There are 3 or four other rentals houses on the same beach, but not enough that the beach would ever be busy. There is a small beach restaurant up the beach about 10 minutes walk, but we stayed in the rainy season and there were no other visitors in the other local rentals, so the restaurant remained closed the entire time we were there. There is a spa about 10 minutes drive away. They will come pick you up and bring you back. They have a nice spa and restaurant there.
I would say renting a car is a must. The owner has a book of recommended local places to visit. I highly recommend getting out and exploring. It is a beautiful part of Thailand and worth the effort. The wifi was super fast, so you can be in touch with the world via internet, as well.
The only negatives, were not really that bad. Towels were not changed, but the owner had warned me ahead of time that this could happen. The housekeeping staff never came in when we were home, so if you don't leave, you will have to arrange with them to come in and clean. There were a lot of jellyfish in the water. Do not know if this is seasonal.
I cannot emphasize enough how isolated this place is. If you need a nightlife, this is not the place for you.
Sandra, the owner, was really fantastic. The best I have ever dealt with. If you need anything, she will help arrange it.
