“A wonderful, restful respite from Bangkok...almost too good to be true!”
Reviewed 13 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Stepping into this seaside condo after an easy 3 hour journey from Bangkok is like being welcomed into the comfortable vacation home of your favourite relatives, who just happen to be away. Surrounded by a diverse and extensive library, personal mementos and effects of an international family, soothed by the cool salty breeze blowing in from the large bougainvillea-fringed balcony, and immediately captivated by the panoramic seaview, the anxieties of city life just melt away. Your first reaction is, "why didn't I book a longer stay?".

Everything that you could possibly need is here and available for your use (as of Feb 2016), from tennis rackets/balls to espresso machine to internet-enabled TV and an extensive DVD collection. Wifi is provided, free and fast. Basic kitchen supplies & condiments are there for your use.

The three bedrooms are roomy and comfortable, with the master bedroom opening directly to the wonderful balcony. Master b/r also has ensuite bathroom. Second bedroom is large, with a comfortable futon and mini balcony looking toward the sea, although the main view from the room is from the backside of the building, overlooking the green countryside. Comfy place to hang out and read. The third bedroom is set up for children, with a bunk bed still decorated with and surrounded by child friendly accessories. Toys and puzzles are on hand. Sheets and bedding are clean, complete and comfortable for all three rooms.

The main living, dining and kitchen area is open plan, and inviting place to hang out and relax. Relatively new flatscreen TV with international cable channels, DVD player and library are there for your enjoyment. However, what one really loves to do here is hang out on the large balcony, enjoying the sea breeze and wonderful views toward Koh Samet.

As for outdoor amenities, large, clean and well maintained swimming pool surrounded by villas is available for use, and the of course the development fronts directly onto the ocean. The beach in front of the property is cleaned daily, the sand is fine, and the water is warm and inviting. The beach extends unbroken for kilometres in both directions, great for long, languid walks. As is becoming all too common on many Thai beaches, there is a problem with litter and plastic waste in certain sections as one walks along, but again, the area around this condo is clean and well-kept and your enjoyment of the oceanside will not be undisturbed. No vendors, no tourist hordes, not many locals even - it is a peaceful stretch of beach where one can truly relax and unwind, so unlike the over-populated mass tourism beaches that are so common elsewhere.

There are three nearby restaurants where one can find good basic Thai food. The best of the bunch is Chomtalay right at the intersection about 250 m to the left as you exit the property to the main road. There is newer one a bit closer on the right, but based on our experience, would not recommend it.

This review is perhaps a bit wordy, but then again, we were so impressed with this place, and so grateful to find it, that I just can't say enough good things about it. I must also mention how very pleasant and responsive the owner (Margo J) is - such a pleasure to deal with, so helpful and welcoming. Thank you Margo!!

I would not hesitate to return to this property, and it has my highest recommendation.

“Awesome beach and spot”
Reviewed 26 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

To summarise, we will not hesitate to go again.
The owner was VERY VERY helpful. The house was very good. They were very welcoming in using anything at their place. The movie collection was cool.
That is very very great.
Thanks Margo. Loved to fall asleep in the balcony on those awesome chairs.

The pool was good and clean. The beach outside was perfect for young kids too.
We were in for a few days only and the eating joint were walking distance. A very beautiful stroll from the beach either side gets you to wonderful restaurants.

Highly recommended for a lazy holiday.

The condo was perfect.
the condo with Margo, the owner, also perfect. Answers within minutes depending on the time of the day. We in Germany and Margo in Thailand.
Everything as described. 3 bedrooms, large living room, 2 bathrooms, large balcony.
Everything was neat and clean, perfectly equipped.
The kitchen with everything (condiments, even noodles, rice). Many glasses, plates, cups, cutlery, etc.
The shelves full of books and DVDs.
Our daughter, 13, enjoyed very much to watch English DVDs.
You see that the condo is used as second home for the family, so many nice things around, decoration, pictures, photos, etc.
Breakfast on the balcony.
The house itself also very clean. The staff very friendly.
The pool large enough for a good morning workout.
the place was quiet.
The beach also nice and clean.
Very close nearby restaurants and shops.
to day it again: Perfect.
It was the best plae we had during our 2 weeks in Thailand travelling around with 5 different places to stay in.

“Just perfect”
Reviewed 20 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

Our stay in Margo's apartment was just perfect. I travelled with two young children who had a fabulous time, both in and outside the apartment. The bedrooms are comfy and the kitchen very well equipped, with literally everything you might require. The balcony has a great view and a lovely breeze. There are plenty of things to entertain little ones: books, toys, DVDs, and a super kid's bedroom with a lovely bunk bed. The area is beautiful, the beach was clean and lovely, and quiet. We didn't want to leave. Great place, great value. We will definitely be coming back.
