Right on the beach. Surrounded by food, sea, massage, cafes, bars, tourist shops. Fantastic family holiday apartments. BUT downstairs are damp and mouldy, suffering from hot moist air from the sea, and quite unhealthy. Be sure to book upstairs, or insist on a thorough clean of downstairs apartment and inspection before arrival.

There is surf here, and you can hire a board from one of the bars around the surf club.

Like everywhere in Thailand, you take the rough with the smooth (unless you stay 5 star). This place is just perfect for our getaway. Loving it, and the internet works fine.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms are free from mould and damp.

Perfect location right on the beach. We are a family with young children and we stayed in the ground floor 2 bedroom apartment. Absolutely perfect apartment, staff were helpful, 10 mins from the village and shops, bar and restaurant within 2 mins walk and a tailor next door. We had a lovely time at this place.

We booked a 2 bed apartment & a studio. The 2 bed apartment was huge, generous sized bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a good kitchen & lounge area. We had a ground floor room which walked straight out to the pool (could be a hazard if you have small kids who can't swim).
The studio apartment didn't have a view but was cheap, clean & quiet. Had a nice new shower too.
The apartments are clean and serviced regularly. There are some tiny maintenence issues but nothing to worry about.
The apartments are in a small block of maybe 20 apartments on 2 levels (ground & 1st floor) so don't expect 'hotel style facilities' - the pool is good, the location is good, the staff are friendly.
Location - great proximity to beach. We went in low season so there wasn't a lot of restaurants open near by - Smile Bar next door was good. This was a bonus for us as very quiet at nice. Only a short walk to the main part of town (10mins) along the beach - was a struggle with a stroller though but manageable.
About Kamala - I found the beach very dirty - lots of litter but I don't know if this is a low season thing? I've never noticed litter on the beach on previous trips.

Room Tip: 1st floor for views, ground floor for ease!

Right on the beach towards the North end of kamala, this group of 10 or so apartments offer great value for familys that dont need the hotel extras. Large rooms the 2 bed have 2 bathrooms well set out with full kitchen and most good views of the beach with outside sitting areas or balcony. What you wont get are breakfasts or room service or tour desk but the price makes up for that. We arrived late and had a bit of a job finding the night porter but that was our only problem.

Room Tip: Upper floor for view, bottom for pool acess

Reviewed 27 April 2011

We booked here on the recommendation of a friend who had seen the apartments on her last visit - but hadn't stayed there. We are a family of five including 3 children aged 13, 10 and 5. Our usual holiday would include a hotel with all the trappings - and we fancied something a bit different. We got it - in the best way!
When we arrived there was a slight hiccup as they had only allowed for two children sleeping in the second bedroom - they assumed our youngest would sleep with us in our room (and bed). However, we explained that we didn't want this and although we had to pay extra for it (300TB per night), we were supplied with another bed immediately. When we looked back at the booking details, it does state quite clearly that this is the case, so this was an oversight on our part.
The apartments themselves are huge, with a large living area including kitchen, dining area and sofa etc. Each bedroom had its own (gorgeous) bathroom and our room overlooked the beach with a balcony.
The staff were friendly and helpful at all times booking trips, advising on cabs etc. The maids were particularly great - there was never the usual issue of having to vacate the room for it to be cleaned as often happens in hotels. They were like magic fairies who came and spotlessly cleaned when we were not there - sometimes we had only been gone for half an hour or so and it was done. The maids were also very friendly.

The apartments pool is a good size and kept all three of our children happy for our whole stay. It isn't too deep, but deep enough to jump in if they wanted. And it had a jacuzzi at one end which the pool/bar/luggage carrier/general helpful lovely man would switch on and off at your request.

The location though, was the best thing. It is literally seconds from the beautiful Kamala beach, pretty much in the middle of the 'strip' with lots of choice of beach bar restaurants, massage places and market stalls. All the people we met were lovely and having had a look at other places, we think we struck gold.

If you do go there - be sure to visit Man and Egg at Freedom, the beach bar restaurant just outside the apartments. Great food, great guys, great setting. Love that place!

Perfect family holiday - despite our worries that the kids would be bored or that we'd struggle to keep them entertained. Sometimes, less really is more!

One slight niggle - and it was a slight niggle for us, but want to mention it as it may be a big thing for some. There is a mosque or prayer place at the back of the apartments that begin their prayers very early (5am?) and have them regularly throughout the morning. We heard them a couple of times - mainly at the beginning of the holiday when we were adjusting to the times. You could mainly hear it in the children's room which was behind ours, I should think it would be worst if you went for a road side apartment. But, nothing that a pair of ear plugs wouldn't sort if you were sensitive to that kind of thing. It became part of the soundtrack for us - didn't cause any problems to our sleep. But, as I said, is worth mentioning.

Room Tip: Rooms 201 or 204 - on the first floor. Great views

We stayed for 8 days at baechfront ... Exceptional!
A very quiet place, clean, and photos of the site are real .. live even better.
Distance from pool to beach: 2 steps (2 really!).
A special appreciation to Miss Jeab (General Manager).
Besides the professionalism and kindness in welcoming when we arrived, we forgot a cell phone in the room. We were immediately sent back home.
Highly recommended!
