Other things to note

-This is a "Private House Rental", NOT a "Bed & Breakfast." Guests provide their own meals or eat at nearby restaurants. Longtail Beach Restaurant offers dining-in, or a full menu you can take-away to the house.
-Remember this is a "Private House" not a "Hotel" and does not have full Hotel service. There is a difference. If you want full Hotel service, consider another place.
-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 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. If you are looking for a "Remote Sanctuary" with silent solitude, this is not a good fit. -If you are traveling during the wet-green season, please consider your comfort level when/ if it's stormy and/or rainy.
Please think first, if this is your style of accommodation before booking.

The appartment is really close to the beach. As you can see at the picture. 3minutes away is a restaurant directly at the beach and a nice pool. You can also get a massage there. If you look for a calm and relaxing stay you found the right place

Perfect place for perfect peaceful holidays ! No surprise inspite of the beautiful pictures, it looks exactly the same. Next to the beach and its restaurants, walking distance from the village, no need to rent a scooter for your daily needs. The beach is just beautiful, long sandy beach with cristal water and nobody around. We needed a break to rest and it was the perfect place to be. Brenda is always available to answer all your questions and respond quickly. Perfect hosts as well ! Thank you Brenda and Brian for letting us sharing your place !

We really did enjoy our time at this Airbnb. The location is walkable to restaurants/bars and is situated on one of the most beautiful beaches we experienced on the island! If you are looking for a quiet place to stay while being able to enjoy beautiful scenery, delicious food, and a welcoming community, this is a great option on the island. The house is comfortable and we had a wonderful time relaxing in the many cozy hammocks! It is a bit of a trek to get to the remainder of the island, so this is something to keep in mind if you plan to do a lot of exploring. Unfortunately we did run into a few issues during our stay: 1 - The Longtail staff were so friendly and helpful to us, but there was a misunderstanding during checkout. We were surprised to hear that they had reserved a private taxi for us on our way out of town to the pier. Although we appreciated the help, we had not requested one and had made other arrangements for transportation. When we declined the offer to take their private taxi, the office staff became upset and I felt that I was treated very poorly during the checkout process. This is unfortunate because the rest of the staff were so kind to us. 2 - I do not feel that the home should be advertised as having wifi. Although wifi is available, the connection is poor. I had a hard time checking emails, etc. Not a big deal for us since we spent most of our time outside, but it could be a concern for others. 3 - Blankets for the beds and beach towels were not provided. Although this was not advertised by the host, I feel that these are basic items that are typically included in Airbnbs. The Longtail staff were happy to provide these items to us after we asked about them. Overall, we did really enjoy our time here and hope to visit the area again in the future.

Thank Emily for your comments. The staff are the best and we are so happy you enjoyed the house. The Internet can be slow at times as stated in advance [On the site: Remember, you are at a remote beach on a remote island so it's common to lose the signal on occasion; especially during storms. Normally it will be back within 15 minutes. If the internet is out for many hours, please notify the resort manager. If you are on a working holiday, consider getting a bluetooth devise to work with your phone for 3G and constant internet connection.] Can you recommend another way to accurately describe the internet capabilities? I'm glad to hear the staff accommodated your request for blankets and beach towels. Normally they are kept in the bedrooms. Perhaps they were in laundry when you checked in? We are looking forward to your next stay. All our best, Brian and Brenda

Brenda's place was amazing! We were pleasantly shocked by how close it was to the beach (max 2 minute walk). The decoration was beautiful, we loved the island vibe and in addition were very happy with the full kitchen setup! We had everything we needed to put our new Thai cooking skills to the test. The Longtail resort staff was the cherry on top, so sweet and helpful. If you want to visit this island and get away from the crowds but still have access to beach, markets and bars then you need to visit the Longtail House!

This place was ideal for us, close to the beach and close enough to use the resort facilities (pool & restaurant) but far enough away to for complete privacy. Great view and nicely fitted out. Resort staff were lovely too. A short walk into town to rent scooters, do laundry or go food shopping at the small supermarket. There's also some good cheap local food stalls & shacks in town for when you get over the resort 'farang' style food. A highlight was the cliff bar which is a 10 min walk up hill or 2 mins on a scooter - what a view at sunset! I'd love to come here for longer next time.
