We are available to our guests at all times either by mobile phone, sms, e-mail, Line and (website hidden). The Juristic Offices, one on the main floor and one next the tennis courts also gives direct assistance and support to you with respect to laundry, problems, complaints, bicycle rent, tennisrackets etc..
The apartment on the 11th. floor overlooks the large swimming pools (15.000 sqm pools with bridges and tunnels all the way from the apartment to the beach), super villas, sculptured garden as well as the sea (200 meters distance) on one side and the mountains on the other side. The Palm Springs Golf course and a large shopping center "The Venezian" are at 400 meters walking distance. There is also a supermarket called Family Mart 300 meters away from the "Boathouse" entrance at the corner of the highway. The Hua Hin airport - close by - stopped all commercial flights some years ago and is closed, so no worry for any disturbance.
You can easily rent a car (about THB 1.250 a day) and a motorbike (THB 200 a day) in Hua Hin downtown (anywhere; tip: in front of Mcdonalds near the Hilton Hotel), that can be delivered at the "Boathouse" on your request as well. The "Boathouse" has also got its own shuttle bus that can bring you anywhere you like in Hua Hin or Cha-am. The Boathouse area golf carts will drive you to the beach. The bus station is just at the opposite of the Boathouse. Note: all Thai people in Hua Hin know this resort but they pronounce the name without the "s" at the end, so: "Boathou").
You can enjoy your lunch or a drink at the famous Hotel Dusit Thani (incl. rent of jet scooters, a viper, kayaks and banana boat) after 1000 meters walk on the beach (go left) or at another restaurant already after 100 meters on your left and since April 2015 as well on the right side on the beach after 30 meters (see photoseries). When you decide to take a longer beach walk to the right, you will find a lovely restaurant after 500 meters by the name of "Haven". Note: be aware of high and low tide. If "caught" by the high tide, then you have to return via the public streets and enter the Boathouse again at the main entrance.

The guests are advised to be themselves and to relax. My home is your home, so please no smoking in the unit and be eco minded please to switch off the aircon when you are going to chill outside. Enjoy your stay.
The host was so nice. The place is decent enough for a vacation. I made some breakfasts with my friend during the vacation. There were tons of utensils and cooking tools provided. The view was awesome! I felt so relaxed in this trip. The only difficulty I encountered was some language problem with the staff. But it was solved with goggle translate and I believe this is my personal problem. Overall, this was a nice place to relax!
Great location. Peter and maura are very responsive. Great swimming pool. We loved the restaurant next door. We just had bad luck with a lot of construction noise next to the building
This is a far more than expectation. Lovely place, and friendly people. Maura asked one lovely officer help us book a car.The place is not near the town so that it is good for people love to staying far away from city. Pretty outstanding experience.
This property is beautiful and located close to Hua Hin. The infinity pool, gardens and the room itself, which is clean, bright and comfortable, all work to ensure a highly enjoyable stay.
We really enjoyed our trip, the communication from Peter and Maura was excellent and I can't fault this superb property. I'll definitely be back.
Excellent in all respects, which meant a highly enjoyable holiday at the beach for our family. Thanks for a great experience Peter and Maura! Spot on.
This house has very nice view and a lot of things we can use, rubber boat, toys for kids, floating bed and so on.
The kitchen items are perfect for us to cook by ourself.
5mins waking distance is Family mart(24hours mart), kind security and management office staff.
If you have car, no problem.

it was very great stay for my family!!

About the Host, Peter And Maura
We lived in Bangkok for 5 years from 2005 while Peter was working a the Netherlands Embassy in Bangkok. We love Thailand and we decided in 2009 to buy a condo at the Boathouse. Actually we both work for the Netherlands Embassy in Pretoria and of course we spend our holidays in Hua Hin every year :-).
