Interaction with Guests
I live in Hong Kong and stay in this house in Krabi as often as I can, but basically you have it all to yourself. I have lived in this community for 18 years and there are some lovely local families who live nearby. The caretaker lives next door. I can help arrange an airport pickup if you need it.
The house is located on a quiet road approximately 1.5 kms from Ao Nang village and 4 kms from Ao Nang beach. Easy access to local fresh food markets, Railae beach and transport to Krabi town. Great area for running, cycling, climbing and diving.
There are lots of transport options in Ao Nang. Generally transport is cheap. The house is just over a kilometer from the main road so easiest option is to rent a bike/motorbike/car.
Other transport options:
- local 'songtaew' buses to Krabi town every half an hour from the beachfront
- 'tuk-tuks' for around Ao Nang (cheap)
- longtail boats to Railae and islands
- daily boats to Lanta and Pee Pee islands
- private car with a driver - (Krabi airport to house 600 baht; Phuket airport to the house 2500 baht)
- lots of local motorbike or car hire businesses in Ao Nang; main car hire companies all have an office in Krabi airport.
