“Clean, comfortable & great value”
Reviewed 25 May 2013 via mobile

The villas are set back from the beach (about a 3-5 minute walk) in a beautiful garden setting, the views from the veranda are stunning and a great place to watch the sun set.

The villas are clean, comfortable with very well equipt kitchens. The tv has numerous british channels which we were very greatful for when the weather was stormy.

Rolf and his partner are wonderful hosts and as well as giving us a warm welcome, made sure to stop by and check on us during our stay.

Yet another good revommendation from other trip advisor reviewers so thank you!

We were slightly disappointed with Ko Lanta itself, it may be the time of year but long beach was covered in litter washed in by the sea, there are also thousands of little crabs which wont bother you but may make you think twice about stretching out on your towel!

I booked into Freedom Estate for one night just to have a bit of luxury and respite after weeks of backpacking. For just 750 baht I got a spacious bungalow with hot water, clean and spacious bathroom, full kitchen with all appliances, clean and large bed, air conditioning, cable tv, lock box, and a verandah with amazing views from the hillside out across the bay.
It felt so luxurious and relaxed. Just up the hill, a 5 minute walk from the comparative bustle of Long Beach. Cool breezes. The owner, Rolf, was very friendly and attentive.
A wonderful place to stay.

Room Tip: All the rooms are in one row and they are all the same size, quality, and have the same view.

I was very happy with my stay here. If you do not mind not being right in front of the beach (it is 5 min distance walking uphill) this place is perfect: a lot of space in the room, fully equipped with a fridge and a kitchen. As it is uphill, its is very quiet, but still close to everything (7 eleven, "dive and relax" diving center, beach, bars...). The balcony is great to have coffee with a sea view. Rolf, the swiss owner who lives next to the bungalows, is very kind and helpful.

If you're looking for somewhere relaxing, where you can have your own space and independence, then look no further. The 6 apartments have everything you need and the views are to die for.

Rolf and Nu are wonderful hosts and made our stay very enjoyable.

we stayed at Rolf and Nu`s guesthouse for 6 days, and the conditions were great! we missed none of the amenities from home!
we definitely didn`t mind the 5 min walk to the beach.
as a plus, the view over Andaman Sea and the Phi Phi Islands was amazing.
strongly recommeded.

Freedom Estate is the best place for an extended tay on Koh Lanta. The grounds are lovely. The views of the ocean and cool breezes are exceptionally nice, especially after a day at the beach. The bungalow room was very comfortable and had a great kitchen. Freedom Estate is located in a quiet area up on a hill away from the beach. It is easy to walk to the beach, shopping and restaurants. Internet, satellite TV, and a daily 5 liters of drinking water are all provided. The multi-lingual owners and staff at Freedom Estate are friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this lovely spot to spend a week or a month.
