“BEWARE!! DO NOT STAY HERE! Left us at the airport!”
Reviewed 18 May 2012

I communicated with Pete & Gib multiple times two months before our trip to Thailand, and requested a room. We paid a deposit for the room, and Pete confirmed our room before we left. Pete told us that he was going to pick us up from the airport because Rawai is about an hour and a half from the airport. When we arrived in Phuket, we waited at the airport for him for an hour. We called both of the numbers he gave us and there was no response. We decided not to even try to get a cab to his place because we didn't want to stay with anyone that would treat us this way.

Good thing we did not try to go to Rawai beach guesthouse... I emailed Pete, and he responded three days later. He told me that he was on VACATION and wasn't even at his guesthouse!!!!! He said he forgot to write down our booking. I was appalled at how this could happen! We paid the deposit, communicated through about 12 emails, he even confirmed the booking. DO NOT STAY AT HIS PLACE. He might just forget about you, and go on his own vacation!

Pete told me he would refund my deposit for the room, and it has been more than a month since this happened and still no refund!! HE IS NOTHING MORE THAN A CROOK TO ME that took my money, left me at the airport, and ruined my time in Phuket.

Stayed April 2012, travelled with family

We stayed with Pete & Gib for a month in December 2010 and had a fantiasic time, nothing was too much for them, they treated us like family. The rooms were clean and had everything we needed, a fridge, king size bed, air conditioning, balcony, and an extra large shower room. The room was serviced daily along with clean towels and the sheets changed every two days(heaven). Pete organized our taxi from the airport and we rented a scooter from him so had a hassle free first day(thanks Pete). The food was excellent, we had breakfast daily and nothing was too much trouble for Gib as my husband had some strange requests, rice,bacon and beans, there is an extensive menu and we strongly recommend you try Gibs Thai food as it was excellent.

Stayed With Pete and his wife at the Rawai guest house .
Nice clean rooms although very basic .
Room had a nice view of the sea,no food or drinks available.
I liked the place but there are much better places for value for money.

We found ourselves stumbling upon Pete and Gib at the Rawai Beach Guesthouse, looking for a room for one night before moving on to Koh Samui - we ended up staying for Christmas, New Year and left Koh Samui early to spend the last week there also.

Beautiful rooms, cleaned immaculately everyday, a/c, mini bar, Gibs amazing cooking, and with only 3-4 rooms, it is intimate, quiet and relaxing.

Well located to island hop, it is only a short walk into the main bar and restaurant area and is in easy driving / scootering distance of stunning beaches - they will even lend you a scooter to get around on!

Wouldn't hesitate in recommending to friends and look forward to returning!

This marvellous property is only about a six or seven minute walk from the main drag (bar/restaurants) at Rawai. Run by Peter and Gib, there are only I think 3 rooms all with new and tasteful furnishings and super bathrooms en suite. Beautiful gardens as well.

Nothing was too much trouble - on my first night there was a power cut in the area and worried that I might be trying to get home in the dark, they came out to look for me. Also whilst trying to find a friend who lives in Rawai, Gib went off on her scooter to try and locate the house! Super people.

  • Liked — Spotlessly clean and excellent service from proprietors
  • Disliked — Nothing to complain about at all
