“Wish you were here? You should”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

I picked wish you were here guest house after several of the more talked about guest houses were booked up. I'm so pleased they were, this chilled out haven suits it's surroundings perfectly with it's amazing wooden structure and awesome owners. The food is great, homemade and reasonably priced for the area and the location. I came here after staying in several cities and going to all the party hostels, which were great but for a chilled out beach experience the wish you were here guest house was exactly what I was looking for. I had a room to myself in the main building and woke up with a smile on my face as the sun was streaming through the wooden shutters and I could hear the sea over the fan. Also there were no bed bugs.

The owners and staff are awesome, welcoming and friendly, they learn your name and make sure your happy throughout your stay be it sitting at the bar of an evening, just chilling, reading or having a few beers this has been one of the most relaxing experiences I've had so far on my 2 months travelling and I'm hoping to extend my stay for a few days. The local area isn't the busiest but a short tuk tuk takes you in to party central for when the mood takes you.

Book in advance take the plunge and enjoy this place as it the ideal beach guest house, basic but clean, friendly and the perfect atmosphere to enjoy this part of the world.

Room Tip: Although a bit more expensive the private rooms really add to the experience. Though saying that the...

This place is fantastic. Amazing, friendly owners and staff, DELIGHTFUL FOOD and a fantastic location. Ditch all of your glam and get back to your roots in the beautiful thatched roofed shacks and wooden huts. Located just across from the beach, it's a great place to come and chill out and soak up the atmosphere. Highly recommended

Beautiful part of the world, just gorgeous. Beach lovely and clean with snacks all along the way, people coming. To give massages and paint your toenails, selling sweets and lollies and corn in cups. Had a great time with friends, as a backpacker. The staff and management were very friendly and helpful. I would stay here again. I especially loved the crystal clear waters, some of the most beautiful sea I have ever seen. I remember floating on my back looking up at the sun wishing I could stay here forever.

i felt it was a nice place,my only complaint was the lack of chamber pots in the dorms as it is a bit of a walk to the delux shared toilet for an old fella like me,also it would be very nice if they could put some holy pictures on the walls of the dorms to inspire the young that sleep there and put a stop to some of that dirty catholic sex and all that sort of stuff that goes on,these people would start getting familar with each other and i,m hearing all this and all i can do is get familar with myself if you know what i mean?but all in all it was a great place and i would recommend this place to all and i will be back.

Room Tip: get there early and don,t nickel and dime the staff

The place is very cool and the vibe here is great!!
If you are looking for chilling out for a couple of days very close to the beach, this is the place!
The food is awesome, the staff super friendly and the beer cool and cheap.

Aaron have done a great job building up and managing this place.
And by the time we were there he was building new toilets and doing some changes on the place, so it's going to be even better soon.

Wish You Were Here was the perfect place to chill out after a week of temple climbing. We stayed in a super comfy bungalow in the back. We ate breakfast there every morning and had the tea. Both were fantastic and exceeded expectations. The staff was friendly and super helpful. Would definitely go back. On a side note, some earlier reviews mentioned bedbugs, but that problem seems to have been cleared up.

Room Tip: Pay the 2 bucks more for the bungalow

I stayed here with two friends and we can't speak highly enough of it! The staff were so great to get to know and were so happy to talk to you and give you advice about anything. We stayed two nights there and then came back for another because we enjoyed it so much. Right opposite the beach and the food is incredible. 10/10!
