Having enquired about the prices of various beach bungalows for 2 days, it was a massive relief to find Sairee Sairee Guesthouse - a spot on the main drag 2 streets back from Sairee beach and with proper guethouse/hotel rooms.
Although the guesthouse/restaurant is on the main road through Sairee, it was really quiet staying here.
Glass sliding doors open to a white-washed bedroom with a double bed and white linen. Washed cement floors provide for a really clean effect. The only criticism is my room had a wet cement smell every time I entered the room. But it was minor and disappeared after a few minutes.
Really nice to have a bathroom of decent size and whereby the shower head is not directly over the toilet (like in most spots i've stayed in throughout SE Asia).
Water pressure is a little dismal but the bathroom size makes up for it.
Air con and a fast rotating fan were a bliss.
My flatscreen TV didn't seem to be wired up to any channels but the guesthouse offers a basket of knock-off DVDs to peruse through should you have a quiet night in.
Staff are lovely, really laid back and fun to chat with.
The owners are French and take pride in the property.
One recommendation to management - invest in a decent coffee machine. Coffee each morning was disappointing.
All in all, I would definitely return as I loved the quietness of the guesthouse and its proximity to the beach and all other happening spots!
