The space

Welcome to Lanta Pole Houses:

Located in Lanta Old Town we are on the nature-rich, southeast coast of Koh Lanta, only 15 minutes away from the stunning beaches and tourist areas on the west coast — yet far enough to allow the village to retain its traditional culture and charm. Those who want a more independent holiday - will love it.

Coconut House:
This privately-owned oceanfront villa is located at the south end of Old Town and a five minute walk to restaurants and shopping. Coconut House is a two bedroom, one and a half bathroom home made of gorgeous hardwood and that sits on stilts directly over the sea. The view over the harbour and the archipelago is absolutely stunning. The 1500 sq ft. villa offers all the modern conveniences you'll need to live in comfort and style.
The expansive master bedroom is in the top story of this two-story villa. There are two Thai Day beds in the living room plus a 2nd bedroom/office with air conditioning on the first floor that has 2 beds to chill out or sleep on. All offer splendid ocean views. Amenities include: Lovely covered deck with seating and hammocks, wifi Internet connection, hot water garden shower; double gas cooking hob; breakfast bar, toaster, refrigerator, bedding, linens, cutlery, kitchen and breakfast bar.

Other things to note

A Note About The Tides:
The highest tides are over 3 meters high, and are at the full moon and new {black} moon phase of EACH month, EVERY month. The normal tides are around 2.5 meters and change daily every 6 hours, for more information look at Phuket’s tide chart on the internet. The sea's clarity is very much influenced by the wind and waves, and therefore the time of the season. It can be stunning year around, but if stormy the sea is not clear. Lanta Old Town is a working fishing village with no sandy beach, there is a beach at the end of the street with rock and a little red sand where you can swim. The white sandy beaches are on the west coast.

Please note Xmas and NYE weeks are higher (peak season) and big green season discounts. For Green season we have a 1 week min stay. Monthly rentals do NOT include electric bill. we have 2 houses for rent very simalar- email for more info.

The Thai owner reserves the right to move guests to either house, but we will always try to accommodate the guests first choice. Houses are priced the same for this reason.

Truly a fantastic home to stay. Breath taking views and comfortable apartment in a quiet fisherman's village. The hosts were great , easy to contact and lovely people. It was hard to leave this beautiful place!

A great chilled place to base yourself to explore Ko Lanta from. The patio in the back, on the water is as good as it looks in the photos, and many good hours spent there with my friends. Old town is a great rustic Thai fishing village, away from the over developed west side of the island. Would come back here in a heartbeat given the chance!

Four nights at coconut house. Wow, what an amazing place to stay. Definitely a quiet part of Koh Lanta and we loved every minute. Relaxing on the deck as the water lapse beneath you, the friendly locals and great restaurants you can walk to. Our host was so delightful and helped with every detail of our stay. Great memories, Thankyou !

The pictures do not justify the beauty and the charm of this home and neighborhood. We stayed at the coconut house mid February for our honeymoon and did not want to leave! The beds are comfortable, the home is clean, the deck and the sunrises are unparalleled. All of the small town charm with all of the modern amenities that you need. Suzanna and Krista answered all of our questions with no delay. I highly recommend renting a longtail boat through Ken next door, the local cooking class, "Cooking with Mon" and grabbing a mango mojito from, "Same but different" :) Our stay here was the highlight of our trip!

Our stay at the coconut lodge was great. So peaceful being woken by the sound of waves under your feet. Old town is quiet but nice and you can always rent a scooter and drive to the other side of the island for more night life. Highly recommend.

My family (two parents in the 60s and 2 daughters in our 20s) spent a month at the house and it was absolutely lovely. The house is lovely, the deck is amazing, it is just a perfect chill place to spend a month in old town. You can rent scooters in town, get to know everyone in the neighborhood, etc. Really started to feel like home <3

Susanna's place is very clean, cozy and perfect if you feel like getting away from the touristy parts of the Thai islands, as you're right in the middle of the quaint old town. The property is as advertised, and you definitely get to live like a local which was such a nice experience for us. 5 min walk to a few really nice restaurants in old town , especially recommend Apsara! It was so good we went back 3 nights in a row for dinner!
