About This Listing
Our classic beach home will give you a true feeling of how to stay in an original Hua Hin beach home is like. Only a few steps away to the beach, it's tucked away in a quiet garden yet conveniently located opposite from Hua Hin Market Village.
"Come and experience the original beach home of Hua Hin like no others!
This two-stories private beach house in Hua Hin, called "Casa Rasdara" after our mother's name, has been our family's vacation home since 1980s. Nested in a quiet garden where you can hear birds chirping during the day and cicadas singing at night, yet we are only a few steps away from the sun, sand and city. The famous pristine Hua Hin beach is only a few meters away, while "Hua Hin Market Village"- the biggest mall in town - is a few minutes walk away.
Located inside the same property and management of Baan Rajdamnern Hua Hin Resort, it's an ideal place for a couple, a group of friends or a small family seeking serenity of a vacation home but with a convenience of a hotel service.
We offer ONLY THE GROUND FLOOR of the house for rent. It consists of 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms; one with a spacious King-Size bed, the other is a connecting smaller guest room with a King-Size bed. The house also offers a dining room, a living area, a well-equipped kitchen, a pantry as well as a long terrace overlooking the garden.
**Please note that the connecting bedroom ISN'T inside the house. The entrance door is at the terrace next to the house. The room is rather small but it fits 2 children or 2 average size adults nicely. If you have small children and do not feel comfortable about having them stay separately, this house may not be for you.**
Amenities include A/C in bedrooms and living area, 27" TV with cable, WiFi, water heater in bathrooms, full-size refrigerator, gas stove, microwave, toaster, cooking pots and pans, electric water boiler, plates, utensils, cups and glasses as well as plenty of water bottles to start your vacation with!
Our location is ideal. It is right in front of Hua Hin Market Village, which includes Tesco Lotus, Starbucks, variety of restaurants and shops. The house is also a very short walk from the beach front. (Approximately 30 meters). We are right at the middle section of the famous Hua Hin white sand beach - vast and stretch. You can walk toward the beginning of the beach at Hua Hin Rocks or toward the end of the beach at Khao Takieb in less than 20 minutes each way.
We all live in Bangkok, however, guests can contact the front desk at Baan Rajdamnern Hua Hin if they have any problems/questions. We'll be available to talk to guests via phone and mail most of the time. If we need to be there, we'll be using the upper floor of the house (with a separated entrance), so guests will not be disturbed.
The house is only 10 minutes drive from Hua Hin night market, and 15 minutes drive from Khao Takieb. Thus around the area, there are plenty of small restaurants within walking distance. For example, the famous cheap seafood "Kin Lhaak", Braised duck in noodle soup "Jae Fai", Northeastern favorite "Som Tum Yok Krok", and local sweet shop "Mae Gep".
Activities in Hua Hin is plenty. Inside the property, guests can enjoy the swimming pool during the operating hours. The tennis court can also be rented. Thai massage on the beach is relatively cheap. Horseback riding is a classic thing-to-do. You can also try one of those "banana boats", rent a scooter or learn to Kiteboard to boost up a little excitement. (KBA - the biggest kiteboard school in Asia is located right in front of our beach entrance. Guests staying at our house will get a 10% discount for a 3 days full-course lesson.) Or you can just simply sit back on the beach and relax. Your choice.
**Breakfast is available at Baan Rajdamnern Hua Hin during the operation hours at a 20% discounted.**
The best way is to drive here, so you'll have the car to explore all the nearby places of interest. However, Hua Hin can be easily reached via taxi, trains, buses and vans. The stop for buses and vans from Bangkok is right in front of our property. The stop is called Hua Hin Market Village. The train station is about 10 mins drive away, you can hire a Tuk Tuk (taxi) or a Tricycle to our place.
There's a taxi and Tuk Tuk stand right in front of our property which you can hire to get around Hua Hin or back to Bangkok at a reasonable price.

Other Things to Note
The house has been kept in its original form since it was built in the 1980s. Though we did a few minor renovations every once in a while, most of the furnitures are still in its original shapes. Please help us cherish our home like you own it too!
This is one of our homes and we really care for it! Please look after the place like it's your own.
Please kindly take off your shoes before entering the house - It's an Asian thing. Don't worry, we do provide slippers for you.
Smoking is not allowed inside the house and the bedrooms.
No pets allowed.
Maximum number of guests is 4 people.
No outside guests are allowed to stay overnight in the house.
If there is any damage of the house, furnitures, decorations, etc., occur during your stay, the value of the items will be estimated and will need to be paid for.
BBQ isn't allowed. Please do not attempt to grill the seafood directly on the gas stove, nor that we provide any BBQ facility. Our house is a wooden house, it's just too dangerous and too smelly. We suggest you eat out or buy the pre-cooked seafood to eat in for this matter.
Please clean up after yourself. This includes washing your own dishes and glasses. And please no making big messes.
Occasionally we do have neighbors staying at their vacation houses next door. We'd like to ask that you do not make loud noises or have a wild party that will disturb them.
Please help us conserve the energy. Please do not leave the light and A/C on while not in use. The reason we ask because we had guests that had the A/C on all day and night even when they're not in the house. Also we'd like to ask that you turn off the street lamps and terrace lights before going to bed so it doesn't bother our neighbors. Thank you!
During Hua Hin Songkran Festival 2015, my family and I enjoyed staying at "Casa Rasdara" very much. The location of this vintage beach house is really perfect, near everything necessary for short-stay vacation such as beautiful white sand beaches, amazing tourist attractions, delicious seafood restaurants, community malls and, especially a 24 hour convenience store at the entrance of this place. The house stays in good condition including furniture and amenities. The beds are cosy and comfy so that we could have a good sleep at nights. We were very thankful to the host for allowing us to cook easy and fast recipes so we all enjoyed having breakfast together. It was really a wonderful experience for us.:)
We will stay there again and thoroughly recommend staying there to anyone visiting Hua Hin, Thailand.
The reservation was canceled 8 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Vi tilbragte 4 uger her. Tæt på strand, Market Village og Downtown Hua Hin og alligevel et meget stille og dejligt sted. Fra start til slut var værten hurtig og behjæpsom.
We very much enjoyed our stay at Casa Rasdara. The house is in good condition and the location is perfect. A very relaxing time where we could recharge our batteries.
The house is located in-between a main road and the beach (but far enough away that you don't get bothered by the traffic). What's good about that is that there's no need to cross the busy road with kids and gear in order to get to the beach -- Just a short stroll to the end of the property, through the gate and you're there.
You are staying in someone's house, so don't expect it to be like a hotel. What you can expect though, is a proper kitchen with a full sized fridge, microwave, stove etc, comfortable beds, good cupboard and drawer space, older style TV (fat back) with a DVD player and a dozen or so movies (including kids movies) for you to enjoy. There's even some beach mats that they've made available for you to use, and in the pantry area a classic "nick nacks" drawer - - string, tape, scissors, international power adapter (don't laugh - you'll appreciate it when you need it!)
Khun Dowrai went out of her way to help with information about many things and her responses were always prompt. Nothing was too much trouble and considering it was our first time to use Airbnb we felt confident that if anything needed attention, she would attend to it quickly and professionally.
เราเข้าพักที่บ้านรัศมิ์ดาราแบบกระทันหัน เจ้าของบ้านจึงยังไม่ได้เตรียมทำความสะอาดให้ แต่บ้านก็อยู่ในสภาพที่เรียบร้อยและมีอุปกรณ์อำนวยความสะดวกสำหรับอยู่อาศัยและทำอาหารทานกันเองครบครัน
พนักงานของบ้านราชดำเนินให้บริการกับครอบครัวเราเป็นอย่างดี เรามาเที่ยวพักผ่อนกันทั้งครอบครัวใหญ่ 2 ห้องนอนในบ้านจึงไม่เพียงพอ เราจึงเลือกจองห้องของบ้านราชดำเนินซึ่งเป็นโรงแรมในบริเวณเดียวกับบ้านเพิ่มอีกห้อง ซึ่งลงตัวมาก เพราะทุกคนสามารถใช้เวลาร่วมกันตอนกลางวันที่บ้าน และชายหาดซึ่งเดินออกไปเพียงสองนาที ขณะเดียวกัน ตอนกลางคืนก็มีพื้นที่ให้ทุกคนได้พักผ่อนอย่างเป็นส่วนตัวในห้องของตัวเอง
We had a great stay at Casa Rasdara. Hosts were very responsive and offered helpful suggestions regarding directions and things to do. The house is comfortable and clean. Nice beach very closeby, though unfortunately inundated with box jellyfish during our stay! Convenient location right across from Market Village. Overall, especially given the absurd spike in hotel costs in Hua Hin, this is a very good value proposition.
About the Host, Rasdara
We are a family with 3 grown children. The beach home in Hua Hin is where the kids spent their childhood summers away from schools. Now that they're all grown-ups and don't have the luxury of long school's summer breaks anymore, we hope our beloved beach house would give joy to our guests like it did to us!
