THE ISLAND: The Island is covered in tropical jungle with small roads to navigate across. Island tours include elephant trekking, temple viewing, beach exploring/snorekeling, snake shows, 'wipe out' water course, zip-line canopy adventures, Thai boxing and more. Ko PhaNgan is famed for its “Full Moon & Half Moon” parties which are hosted on the other side of the island.
You can walk everywhere in the village/bay or rent motorbikes to get around faster. (We do not recommend motorbike travel over the mountain unless you are very experianced rider.) Thongnaipan-yai beach has taxi services to/from the pier at 2 scheduled times a day (10AM, 3PM) or private taxis at your request. To visit other beaches around the island, day-trips can be arranged at the adjoining Longtail Beach Resort.
LOCATION: Ko PhaNgan is one of three tropical islands located in the gulf of Thailand. It is assessable by boats that leave Ko Samui Island several times a day or from the mainland embarking from Suratthani city and DonSak pier. Both Ko Samui and Suratthani have airports and connecting flights to/from Bangkok city. Ko Phangan does not have an airport. Thong Nai Pan Beaches have two crescent bays lined with beach bungalows and 5 Star resorts. The bigger of the two bays is called Thong Nai Pan-Yai (TNP). “Yai” means big, and the house is tucked in the hill at the end of TNP, Yai (big) beach and the end of TNP main road. This area is considered a remote part of the island, requiring 30-40 minute truck transport over narrow, dirt roads through the jungle. *The road has been under construction the last few years and is mostly concrete but expect road construction delays on the way to the bay.
Other Things to Note
This is a "Holiday House Rental", NOT a "Bed & Breakfast." Guests must provide their own meals or eat at nearby restaurants. Longtail Beach Resort will deliver their full menu to the house.
Also remember this is a "House" not a "Hotel" and does not have the same services as a full service hotel.
The road to TNP is now concrete! With the improved road, comes more travelers exploring. Longtail Beach House is located at the entrance to a small bungalow resort. Expect some motorbike traffic to pass by. The house is cozy and nestled at the end of the road with the jungle behind and has a few friendly staff neighbors to smile, sing and help service your needs. If you are looking for a "Remote Sanctuary" with silent solitude, this is not a good fit.
Please think first, if this is your style of accommodation before booking.
-No Pets Please.

Mein Mann, unser 13 jähriger Sohn und ich haben 5 wundervolle Tage in Brendas Haus verbracht. Die Stimmung dort ist einmalig und der Blick auf die verträumte Bucht wunderbar. Besonders am späteren Nachmittag und abends haben wir die Zeit dort sehr genossen. Brenda ist eine gute Gastgeberin und die Kontaktaufnahme hat reibungslos funktioniert. Ihre Informationen betreffend des Hauses sind auf den Punkt gebracht. Idealerweise wäre ein etwas breiteres Doppelbett von Vorteil. Das Haus liegt am Anfang des Longthail Resorts wo wir sehr oft gegessen haben. Die Küche ist sehr gut und das Personal kompetent und hilfsbereit. Wir sind sogar nachdem wir danach einen Strand weiter wohnten, dorthin essen gegangen. Werde diese Unterkunft bei einem weiteren Aufenthalt gerne wieder buchen.
De woning was mooi. Smaakvol ingericht. Ruim balkon. De ligging was ook fantastisch.
De WiFi was heel langzaam en vaker niet bereikbaar. Maar dat is ook niet het belangrijkste van vakantie.
De woning was vrij warm van binnen. Er is geen airco in de woonkamer. Als je airco wilt hebben in de slaapkamers, dan moet je extra betalen, maar dat staat beschreven in de aanbieding. Het was alleen jammer dat de airco van onze slaapkamer te klein was voor onze kleine slaapkamer.
So glad to hear that you enjoyed the house and balconies. We hope you really felt the Thai culture in the open floor plan and vast views. We'll have a look at servicing the air-conditioning as it seems to be slower this year. Thanks for your comments. We hope you come again. Brian and Brenda
Brenda was the perfect host, she responded quickly to any questions we had and did her utmost to accommodate us in any needs.
The resort was top notch and the house even better.
With a large veranda and away from the crowds it was just what we needed.
My son and I loved this house and its location. It was bright,airy, homely and had everything we needed, including some good books. It also had the most fantastic views from the terrace, and was minutes from some great eateries, including the one at the resort itself. Staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. This was a truly glorious spot, and I would highly recommend to anyone coming to the island.
We loved our 4 day stay at Sea View House! We are a couple in our late 20's and found it to be the perfect place to relax and rejuvenate. The house is located on a small "resort" of about 20 bungalows, but still manages to be completely private. The beach here is lovely (truly only a one minute walk) and the house is a ten minute walk into town. The kitchen is well-equipped, but we enjoyed the food so much at the restaurant that we ate most meals there.
The staff at Long Tail Resort arranged a taxi from the ferry terminal (even though the ferry was over an hour late!). The staff were on hand to welcome us and get us oriented to the house and property.
I honestly cannot say enough positive things about this place! After staying in hotels for 2 weeks, we felt at home here. We loved it so much, we extended our stay by 3 nights and stayed in one of the bungalows. I would highly recommend you stay here!
Thanks Meaghan for sharing and of course it pleases us that you loved staying at the house. The staff at Longtail are really helpful and make it easy for our guests and we are glad that you appreciated them as much as we do. So happy that you had a rejuvenating holiday. We welcome you again. Cheers!
This is a beautiful house tucked away in the gem of Koh Phangan. The beach (only a minute or less down the hill) is quiet and the water is clean...a real way to get away and tune out a bit. Brenda was also extremely helpful with her directions and communication. Not to mention, the restaurant down the hill (at Long Tail Beach Bungalows) has the best Thai food I've eaten.
Thanks Nick for your review. It pleases us that you liked the house and enjoyed the benefits of being away from it all, while still having services close by. I'll pass on the compliment to the staff at Longtail Restaurant, it's our favorite beachfront restaurant to eat at. Please come again; I'm happy to assist with your travel needs.
We had a lovely stay in Koh Phangan at Brian and Brenda's house. The house is nicely located at the far end of the Thong Nai Pan Yai beach (north east of the island), near the Longtail Beach resort. We loved the view from the terrace and the feeling of being in the rainforest, yet by the beach! The house has everything one needs to cook meals, but we took all ours at the Longtail beach resort, 1 minute away. Their food was very tasty and reasonably priced. The village has a few shops, and a very nice massage parlour called "The Village", where we went a couple of times. We had a very relaxing and peaceful vacation.
Glad to hear that the house was a good fit for you. We too enjoy the rainforest and sounds of wildlife as much as we enjoy the sea view and beach relaxing. I'll put "The Village Spa" on our list of recommendations for massage. Thank you for your review and we hope to have you again.
About the Host, Brenda
