“Lovely....could have been better if all that was promised was delivered...”

Myself, Wife and Bro/Sister in law stayed at the house for 8 days in late February. Given the location of the house we decided to rent a vehicle at the airport with a satnav and this ultimately proved a godsend. After trying to put in the address of the house to no avail, we finally put in the “Away” Resort which the satnav accepted, this being approximately 2 km from the beach house. After a few wrong turnings near Bangkok we found ourselves en route to the beach house. I must say the standard of roads and driving in Thailand is excellent and they also drive on the left. We stopped on the way down at Cha Am for supper and again at a 7-11 for basics as we were too late for the main Tesco store.
Do not be put off by the sandy track to the beach house as it is all perfectly safe. The location of the house itself is wonderful, overlooking the ocean which is approximately 50 meters away. We had texted ahead to Sue the owner, to let her know our arrival time and a quick bib on the horn brought her to the main gate.
The house is lovely, containing most of the basics, though is not what I would call luxurious. There were no “essentials” whatsoever ie. salt, pepper, cooking oil, foil, clingfilm, ketchup etc., so don’t forget these on your trip to the store. I was also disappointed not to find a blender having already bought sufficient alcohol to disable a well equipped army with cocktails. If you must have English mustard and brown sauce on your food, these were not available, likewise branston and picallilli. Also be aware that sugar ants are everywhere and anything you leave open like biscuits or cereal will be quickly inundated so keep in sealed lid containers. Mosquitoes were about at dawn and dusk though not hundreds of. A quick squirt of repellent is sufficient to keep them at bay.
The house design is a bit strange. There is no A/C in the main living area which can make it a bit uncomfortable. To access one of the bedrooms which contained two double beds, you have to go through the first bedroom. You can however go through the side doors then round to the front door quite easily so this is not a major problem. I would personally be a bit concerned with very young children around the pool area as there are sharp edges and also unguarded drops on one pool side and near the washing machine. This is probably the old fart side of me coming out that sees danger in everything
The first thing we was told when being met by the owner Sue was that Toyd the maid had won the lottery and therefore we did not have a cooking service, daily cleaning or laundry service. Further the jetski and waterskis listed as amenities on the house advertisement were in fact only available to hire at a cost of £45 per hour, in which case I guess golf and elephant trekking could also be amenities as well. The internet also did not work for almost half our stay. We also requested hiring the settee on wheels scooter for one day but this was also not working and also the Jacuzzi jets stopped working after 3 days.
Saying this, would I stay here again? I would have to say yes but transportation is a must. The weather was fantastic (31oC), with a sea breeze every day. (This starts about 11-12 every day and lasts till evening.) We visited many resorts along the coast and found some truly gorgeous areas. A trip to a National Park brought a close encounter with a wild elephant which came some 6” from our vehicle which I was unfortunate to miss as I had gone fishing myself. This was apparently a very rare occurrence as on telling Sue, she had been there herself many times and never seen one. I would also say the hiring of a vehicle was actually cost efficient as many tours give you the whole “package” and in consequence cost about £40 per head whereas our trip to Monkey Island was £13 as opposed to the £160 we would have had to pay.
The sea itself is very safe for bathing though not very clear and is shallow for a long way out and also with hardly any stones, the only occasional discomfort coming from seashells and in consequence I swam most days. I saw a few jellyfish but these were few and far between and as I swam into a few I don’t believe these were of the stinging variety.
We had a round of golf at the Eagle Milford Golf Course which included 2 buggies, 2 club hire plus caddies and round cost (2 playing) and this was about £120. It should be said the course is definitely not the best in the area, the bunkers being extremely poor, however the cost was nearly half of what other courses were charging and with the standard of my golf, was definitely good enough for me.
We ate at too many restaurants to mention and the quality on the whole was very good. The question is would I come back? I would say a yes though I would expect Sue to have addressed some of the issues I raised.
Also be prepared for a leaving bill for water and electricity when you depart though an adjustment was made on the water bill as a reported leak in the bathroom had been unfixed for the duration of our stay.

Nice and comfortable house, large bedrooms and beautiful bathrooms.
Both owner (Sue) and housekeeper were helpful, we had booked two motorbikes that were at our disposal at the house, which was likeable.
The house is quite laid back so you need personal transportation.
Sue proposed us to give an English lesson to primary school children,
we loved sharing time with Banmai pupils, teaching them english, playing soccer and volley ball with them, thank you Sue for permtting us to live those moments!
Hope to see you next year, Stephanie, Didier and the kids

“Fantastic place!”

We stayed in Beachfronthouse for two weeks in March. It was the best holiday we have ever had, because it was so different from hotel holidays - no hundreds of people around, no crowded beaches, no busy hotel breakfasts. We could not believe our eyes - all beach as far as we could see was for us only! This is place where you can enjoy every moment of being together with your family and have real quality time.
Sue was very professional during booking process, organized transportation, car rental and so on. Always smiling Toyd was very helpful on whatever we needed and she was cooking delicious meals for us. Previous reviewers have already described all positive aspects of this place, so we can just once more confirm uniqueness of this Paradise spot on Earth.

“Fantastic house in lovely peaceful location”
Reviewed 31 January 2012 for a stay in January 2012

We stayed here for 3 nights while visiting our friend who had rented the house for a week. After a long journey it was lovely to be met by the housekeeper, Toyd. She kindly cooked for us, cleaned, did some shopping, arranged a motorbike to rent and even had it delivered to the house! The house is lovely and peaceful and we loved just walking out of the gates and into the sea for a swim. The owner was very responsive too. We look forward to returning and revisiting the lovely fishing village and restaurants just a short bike ride up the coast.

“Excellent Value”

Others have described the property well. For me the best feature was the peace and quiet, due to being located on a no-exit road. The view from the terrace out to sea was relaxing, and varied with the passing boats. Local eating options were excellent - even at a deluxe resort nearby the main meals were only £3 or so. Local roads are almost deserted so it is great fun exploring the area by motor scooter and seeing the huge fields of pineapples. The internet and TV service wasvery good, and TV included Star Sports, ESPN, Golf Channel and others, as well as many news and documentary channels.
