We decided on our most recent trip to Thailand to try out homestays. We like supporting Thai people expressively. We chose this homestay near Ao Leuk for a couple of reasons. First, we wanted to get off the tourist beaten path and experience something a little more real. The country setting of this homestay was PERFECT for this. Second, it was near some cool national parks we wanted to check out.
We accidentally arrived a day early, but they were very accommodating in every way providing a comfortable aircon and hot water shower room, something we had not had in our travel and was a welcomed respite. The room had a big,clean garbage can in the shower room for doing laundry also needed and welcomed. They probably had service if we asked, but we did not.
They served us excellent food local style not Westernized, loads of yummy tropical fruit and fresh coconuts right off their property. We felt very at home and relaxed here. Did I mention the service was excellent? They went out of their way to take care of us in every way. Great people!
At night we got a treat to a very intense and typical tropical storm. It was lovely there because the thunder was bouncing all over off of the many karsts in the area. They have covered porches and mosquito smokers making for a lovely evening treat to watch.
The roads in the area are beautiful and safe to run on, which for runner's like us was a dream after the various places we stayed where running was not an option.
They also arranged very reasonable transportation when we needed it and helped up get to the aforementioned national parks. The area is stunning and I loved our time here. It gave us a well needed rest from everything in our travels. I can not recommend this homestay enough for the traveler looking for something different. Say hi to Tatu and family for us!
