Interaction with Guests
Interaction between guests and house manager usually up to guests. House manager also live in the same huge piece of land. Guest can walk or call house manager anytime they have any questions. From our experience some guests enjoy talking and dinner with our house manager"s family, some prefer to have more privacy.
Our neighborhood are local residences (land and houses), and are quiet and friendly.
150 meters from the houses to public transportation. Or if you prefer to hire a car or a motorbike, the main island ring road is just 150 meters away.
Local pier is 350 meters away, or you would like to take Lompraya Catamaran pier only 10 minutes driving away.
No dog please
Everything was as expected: great wooden house with big living area, working kitchen and medium-size fridge. The beds in both bedrooms are large and comfy.
There's a big patio for those who want to spend time outside. House is large enough for two families assuming poor sound proof is not an issue. The surroundings are quite, there are sounds of nature everywhere.
Ron, house manager was very kind and polite, he helped and resolved minor inconveniences as they appeared.
Sikarin, the house owner was very welcoming and helped with general questions on Thai
P.S. Neighbor's cat was very chatty and friendly, we have got a lot of fun and pleasure to meet her near the house
Very recommendable house. It's really nice and comfortable. With 2 big bedrooms it's perfect for 4 people. Our days in koh samui have been unforgettable. The house it's well placed: 5 min walking to Mae nam beach (very beautiful) and 2 min walking to the main street were you cand find supermarket, laundry and all the necessary. But the best to go over the island is to rent a motorbike. The manager, Mr Ron, rent us the motorbikes.
We're very pleased because we finally stayed one more day than expected in koh samui.
Many thanks to Sikarin & Ron.
L'accueil a été très chaleureux et la maison est très agréable à vivre. L'endroit est calme tout en étant proche des commerces et de la plage. Ron, le manager de la maison, a pourvu à toutes nos demandes, merci encore mille fois. Sikarin, le propriétaire, a été très sympathique également.
Nous avons séjourné durant 5 semaines dans la lodge, et nous avons tellement apprécié ce havre de paix que nohs envisageons d'y retourner l'an prochain. nous avons particulièrement apprécié la très grande terrasse couverte, abritée du soleil, l'espace intérieur et le jardin planté d'arbres variés, notamment des manguiers. La plage n'est pas très loin à pied et c'est à notre avis une des plus agréables de toute l'île. Mae Nam est admirablement situé, proche de l'aéroport, du golf de Santiburi (remarquable), du terminal de Lompraya pour les excursions dans les îles. La marché chinois du jeudi soir ajoute encore au caractére authentique du village de Mae Nam, loin des grands hotels de Chewang.Les suels inconvénients de la lodge résultent du confort très relatif des fauteuils et du canapé du séjour. Ceci est cependant en partie compensé par les chaises longues de la terrasse, bien agréables le soir notamment. Les voisins thaïs sont charmants, et l'environnement très calme, sauf lors du nouvel an chisois, égayé par les bruits des pétards.
Nous avons également apprécié les services rendus par Ron et son épouse, qui ont tooujours su nous conseiller et nous trouver les bonnes solutions à nos demandes.(choix des supermarchés, réservation de taxis ou d'excursions...) Le seul problème a été la location de la voiture: j'avais souhaité payer le minimum et Ron a choisi un loueur qui ne lui était pas familier : la société PSP - a déconseiller à tous car la voiture n'était pas en état de marche et a nécessité deux réparations pour fonctionner correctement, ce qui n'est pas acceptable. Ron n'utilisera plus les services de cette société, à laquelle il a du recourir par ma faute, souhaitant un petit 4x4 économique qu'il m'avait déconseillé de louer!
Nous avons le projet de retourner à Ko Samui, et il est alors probable que nous retournerons dans cette lodge.
We loved staying at Taramind Lodge - it was very suitable and roomy for our family of 2 adults and 2 children. The nearby beach is quiet with enough little stores closeby for supplies and cafés both on the beach and on the nearby streets. Beds and furniture are comfortable and with the wide decks wehad space to play, relax and exercise. Even though this a less touristy area on the island, we would stay here again as it is easy to hire scooters/car to go sightseeing and then escape back to a slower pace with a more family friendly vibe.
Sikarin (owner) & Ron (property manager), are two real gentleman, who go out of their way to help you with all your needs and provide good honest, non-profitable information relating to the island. travel and tourist spots. The lodge is a large traditional property with plenty of space and storage etc. Externally there is a huge veranda complete with solid wooden sunbeds, a table and chairs. It can be well lit at night with two lighting options available.
The lodge is clean and in a quiet private area.
The beach is a 10 min slow stroll away.
A good selection of restaurants, bars and shops etc., are very close by.
Ron on request will arrange a hire car at a great price. (You can easily drive around the island in a day, and they drive on the left - same as the UK).
Large kitchen modern fridge.
Great size TV with great channel choice.
Two large bedrooms with comfortable double beds and mosquito nets are available for use.
Good aircon facilities.
Great value for money accommodation.
The wooden lodge interior absorbs the natural light making it feel more like autumn than summer.
Very large puddles occur to the walkway/driveway after heavy downpours.
No lighting to the driveway/walkway after dark.
lodge is starting to show signs of wear & tear, could do with an overall.
Large family bathroom (would be better suited if split into two and accessed as en-suite shower/wc rooms)
Had a lovely stay at Tamarind Lodge which was only ruined by the constant November (wet season) rainfall. The huge veranda is fully protected when it rains, so you stay dry. The lodge makes a great family retreat but be aware when sitting outside during the evening, mosquitos are in abundance so spray protect everyone properly. We would recommend Sikarin's properties and would stay again if returning.
If flying into Bangkok Suvarnabhumi International Airport - you can connect with BANGKOK AIRWAYS who fly direct to Koh Samui - AIR ASIA does not....
Air Asia flies from Don Mueang International Airport on the other side of Bangkok into Surat Thani Airport; you will then require a buss/taxi and a ferry crossing to Koh Samui. A hotel may also be required if arriving in the evening (check ferry times).
