This is a wonderful guest house hidden behind big gates and white door but the secret is starting to become known.
Pespi will met and greet you like a well known friend and will be on hand for anything that you request, anything you would like assistance with or bookings for cooking classes, retaurants, tours etc.
On my first night the airconditioner was broken in my room and straight away the next day a brand new airconditioner was installed without any trouble known to me.
The swimming pool is a little small but nonetheless great after a day out and about to be able to return and have a bit of a swim was great - it was very refreshing and also the garden area was very relaxing for some quiet time.
The rooms are spacious and very clean, the surrounding gardens are kept beautifully, the breakfast by the pool was a great way to start the day especially traditional rice soup - it needed to be ordered the day before but then it was something extra to look forward to.
On the same street are some very interesting shops for those that are on the lookout for something a bit different to take home and we didn't have to go far for great restaurants.
I would highly reccommend Baan Orapin - I will certainly be staying longer than 4 nights next time.
