Harvest House is a small guesthouse with about 11 rooms and not a hotel, which is worth remembering. We paid about £26 per night and I would say that it was worth that amount.
Despite it being a guesthouse, you do not feel that you are sleeping in someone's guestroom. You can be as secular as you like. The staff were always friendly and they were on reception until about midnight.
> They have about 4 computers that can be used for cheap internet access.
> You can arrange things like boat tours, airport transfers, ferry transfers etc directly through them.
> I like the road it is on - more character than the main strip on the beachfront.
> The furniture is pretty modern and in very good condition.
> The aircon works!
> The staff are usually friendly and you feel at home when you come back from a day out.
> There was a safety deposit box in our room, but it did not work properly.
> The balcony overlooked the back of the building - but then, the room was cheap!
> The 15 min walk to the beach can be tiresome.
> The bath had seen better days and was the only bad thing about the furnishings.

We arrived by airport shuttle bus, which I would recommend doing as taxis can cost 600-900B (£12-18). The airport bus is only 150B (£3) per person and takes about an hour with a couple of stops. We expected to be dropped near the beach and then to walk, but the driver actually dropped everyone at their individual hotels, which was fantastic.
Aonang seems to have two main spots for nightlife - Centre Point on the front, surrounded by lots of touristy restuarants and then a little Soi on the road Harvest House is on, with some fun girlie bars. I say fun, because it is not at all seedy like you will find in Bangkok or Pattaya. The girls just play pool, try to entice people in, etc. I am a female writing this and I felt comfortable and welcome there. There is a nice selection of more expensive (around 400B per person) restaurants on this road, plus cheaper ones.
If ever I went back to Aonang on a budget, I think I would consider staying here again.
