“A wonderful stay in a wonderful country”
Reviewed 30 November 2009

Smile House was the perfect place for us to stay, it has a relaxed and very friendly atmosphere and the rooms and pool area were spotlessly clean.
The resort is run by a very helpful and accomodating couple, Wendy and Phillip, who were very knowledgeable of the surrounding area, which we found very helpful when getting out and about making sure we did'nt miss anything.
Smile house is in a great location too, just a 5 min drive to the nearest beach, with lots of other beaches only a short drive away.
A wonderful holiday and we are already getting ready to book again to return in April 2010.

We stayed at Smile House, run by an English couple Wendy and Phil on our way to Koh Samui and couldn't have been happier with our choice of accomodation. Great value for money and absolutely spotless. It was supposed to be the rainy seasion but they even made the weather great for our few days (!) so the pool was put to great use. Was lovely to sit by the pool between excursions just looking at the pretty gardens and butterflies that visit. The 2 dogs are very friendly but do not bother you. We hope to be back again soon

We stayed here for 22 days and had the best time ever. My husband was on a diving course for 10 days so i was on my own, Phil and Wendy made me feel so comfortable that i certainly didn't feel alone. The whole time we were there was the most relaxing holiday we have ever had as we have a very busy life. The views from the restaurant are truly beautiful. If you are looking for a great place to relax but not far from some night life then this is the ideal place for you. Phil and Wendy are a great couple who make you feel at home, I have to recommend the full English breakfast. Thanks guys for a great time.

Initially not easy to find, but this is a good thing, because it is set back a few 100m from the main road through Rawai, so you don;t get any traffic noise. The pool is a great feature because it is big enough to do laps in and the appartments are roomy and for the price, very good value indeed. I have now found my perfect holiday getaway resort and will be back!

This is a highly recommendable small, quiet place with a friendly atmosphere. This was my second stay and I am positive that there will be many more to come!

Great little place set back down a little soi away from the main road half way between Chalong roundabout and Rawai. British couple run the place, very friendly and helpful, nothing was too difficult. Clean and simple rooms, nice pool set in a landscaped garden.
