We were pleasantly surprised to find this resort in such a wonderful location: it is close to EVERYTHING! The beach is nearby, just 10-minute stroll. Go in the evening to catch the sun's final rays for a beautiful sunset, weather permitting.
Just about 20 meters from the resort, across the road, there are a few hawkers selling street food which the brave may want to try out. For authentic Krabi food, you must try the grilled fish, done so well the skin is crispy and flesh soft and moist!
There is also a mini-mart and a bank practically "next door"; but the prices at the mini-mart is not all that friendly; get your essentials here but there are better bargains for other items like souvenirs at the beach front.
Timber House also offers massage and spa services, but we found the prices lower and reception better nearer the row of shops facing the beach.
Talking about the beach, you have the luxury of choosing which you'd like to visit: the famous Ao Nang beach, or the quieter Nopparat Thara Beach.
The staff is friendly (but not particularly knowledgeable) and rooms clean. But really lacks facilities: no complimentary coffee/tea; no free wifi; no hairdryer; no gym; and limited choices on the (non-flat screen) TV. The included breakfast was nothing to shout about, and also a "gamble" because there were no labels for the food served, and on one occasion, when I had to ask a staff what the dish was, she had to go to the kitchen to find out from the chef!
High rating is basically for the location.
