Manit and his lovely family pampered me from A-Z. They invited me for a meal at their house and one night we had a fresh fish BBQ with some other guests. Manit also has a speedboat and is happy to take his customers on a snorkelling trip to coral island. I enjoyed my stay in the small guest house very much and would highly recommend it to other travellers.

Thank you very much for writing a review on Tripadviser. We really enjoyed having you as a guest, and we also had great fun. The sea is only a five minute walk away, and offers canoeing, fishing with my long tail boat, and as you experienced, snorkelling off coral island with my speedboat. We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay with us, and thank you again for your kind recommendation.

As others mentioned, Manit, the host, is a very friendly and helpful character that makes you feel right at home. The themed rooms are clean and comfortable and have ac. We stayed one night before ferrying across to ko pipi the next day which Manit organised for us. Of course you can do this yourself with a bit of effort to save a bit of money on commissions etc but we were happy enough to take the easy option. We were recommended a nearby restaurant which was on the river and the food was very good at average prices. Manit can also offer you breakfast on the balcony for 99baht which was simple but just what we needed before our ferry ride. All in all a really enjoyable stay and would definitely recommend it.

Thank you for your review of my Hotel – but I did have to find out what ‘quirky’ meant !!
I am happy that you also liked the restaurant five minutes walk away, where they have fresh fish kept in netted areas on the river. We very much enjoyed having you as our guests. Thank you again for writing on trip adviser.

The location of the Inn is not in Phuket Town and about 20 minutes in a car (when there is no traffic) to the ferry dock for Koh Phi Phi. The Inn is in a house amongst a row homes in a residential neighborhood and the proprietor lives next door. The Inn's owner, Manit is very friendly, hospitable, helpful, and fluent in english.

My husband and I stayed one night prior to and another night after a week stay at Ko Phi Phi. Manit graciously allowed us to store a luggage at his Inn during our stay at Ko Phi Phi.
The room was clean and comfortable. Look at photos on booking dot com. We stayed in one room on first floor with no windows on first night and on return, stayed in a room also on first floor facing the front of the house with windows. Ductless ACs worked well in both rooms, note the water from the AC drains into the bathroom floor (common in budget hotels in Thailand).

We arrived around 9 pm our first night at the Inn. On recommendation from Manit, we went to a very good seafood restaurant by a river/large canal about 10 minute walk from the Inn. Not a budget restaurant. Upon our return from Ko Phi Phi, on our second night at the Inn, it was still daylight so we decided to walk closer to town (about 10-15 minute walk) where there were many options of budget thai restaurants. Had good noodle soup and thai/chinese style BBQ on rice with beer.

Closest ATM was found at the 7-11 store, within 5 blocks from the INN.

Services offered:
Manit offers continental breakfast at reasonable price. It was simple and tasty. Breakfast is available from 7 am.

Manit can arrange for airport pick-up and drop-off. When we booked our rooms, he offered to provide car service at 680 Baht and it's worth it. But based on what I had read online prior to getting to Phuket, I thought we were going to take the airport bus to the Inn but when we got there we realized the bus was not a good option to the Inn. So we took a taxi from the airport in Phuket. The airport taxi charges 800 Baht to the Inn because it is outside the Phuket Town. Our taxi driver also didn't know where the Inn was so he called Manit twice to find our way. Thank goodness Manit gave us his cell number and he was available. We used the car service arranged by Manit for departure to Phuket airport, pickup at Inn was on time at 5:15 am.

Manit can arrange for ferry reservations. Great service. We didn't end up using this service because the ferry he books offers only to and from Tonsai Bay pier for Ko Phi Phi and we wanted to go to Tonsai Pier but then return from Laem Tong Bay Pier, we ended up reserving online with Andaman Wave Master. The ferry reservation offered by Manit cost 600 Baht one way to Phi Phi and 1000 Baht for round trip per person. It also provide free pickup from the Inn to the ferry but no free transfer from ferry to the Inn. Whereas the Andaman Wave Master we booked online was 1300 Baht per person but included transfer to/from the Inn and ferry and we were dropped off at Tonsai Pier on arrival to Ko Phi Phi and on departure from Laem Tong Bay.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review. My Hotel is nestled in a Thai village, which is the reason why most of my guests stay here.
The three superior rooms on the first floor all have external windows, with two having balconies. As you mention the two standard rooms on the ground floor have windows, one looking out on the street, and one looking into the reception area.
As you discovered, there are many Thai restaurants within a few minutes from me, it all depends what you are looking for. Noodle soup and Thai / Chinese style BBQ sounds good.
My family is very happy that you enjoyed your stay with us, and your holiday in Phuket

This place is great because the location is just a taxi ride to phuket town and the owner is SO helpful and nice! He took us on his own motorbike to show us the river and where to eat for dinner. He also was so helpful in getting us a taxi in the middle of the night from the airport too. This is definitely the place you want to stay.

We are really happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. We try to make everyone feel that they are in a ‘home away from home’. Phuket Town is spread over quite a large area and you need a taxi wherever you stay, if you want to explore. It can be fun. Thank you for staying with us, and for writing a review.

We arrived to Phuket absolutely exhausted and the owner organised the pick up for us, all run so smoothly, when we arrived there, the owner, Manit was really really welcoming but at the same time let us to do our own thing and have our own space. We had a nap and overslept a bit and decided to go for some dinner. The owner saw us as we were coming out and offer to bring us to a local restaurant which would be open in his scooter! The food was so cheap and delicious I must admit one of the best Thai meals in my entire stay In Thailand.

Breakfast included in the price was nice too.
I would totally recommend this place in Phuket to get a real feel of local food and culture.

Thank you very much for staying at the Summer Breeze Inn - and for such very nice comments. Many tourists who come to Phuket do not see the 'real' Thailand, and I am very happy that you enjoyed your stay here in my village. Manit Sawangwan, Owner / Manager
