House rules
This place isn’t suitable for children under 12 and the host doesn’t allow pets, parties, or smoking.
A true "hideaway" villa, ideal for 2-3 persons seeking tranquility and genuine surroundings. The fisherman's village of Hua Lem sketches Lanta as it looked like 100 years ago with local inhabitants carrying on their daily lives with hens, goats and fishing at your door step. Suitable only for older children, if travelling as a family.

The space
A two story building spread out on 260 square meters with generous space offering different spots for relaxing and socialising. Being carefully renovated over a five year span keeping the traditional building technique with a well ventilated thai style house, yet modernising it with todays need of a comfortable living. There is no air-conditioning installed since the ocean breeze keeps it cool both during day and night.

The entrance door opens up to a generous 32 sq. m. lounge area with a dining set for six persons as well as a L-shaped sofa facing the 55 inch UHD Smart-Tv. A ladder leads up to the first loft with a queen size bed and another ladder is attached to the second loft with two single beds.

In the center of the building you find the bathroom with hot water shower. A staircase that brings you to the master bedroom with a king size bed, a working desk and roof covered patio with a stunning view! Actually this is the place in the buidlig where you have a 360 degree view! Space enough to bring a couple of yoga mats or lean back in the hammock and imbibe the tranquil atmosphere – meditating together with the waves just underneath.

Continuing on the ground floor describing the well equipped kitchen fitted into 32 sq. m. with both electric and gas stove including oven, coffee brewer and espresso machine, fridge with separate freezer, a dishwasher, microwave oven, toasters and well sorted kitchen ware at your disposal. Two sliding door is marking the zone to the outside area, still roof covered, “No Mind Bar” – an outdoor bar with BBQ, gas stove for frying fresh fish, another fridge to keep the cool drinks nearby the pool area or the dining set when you need some shadow. When you keep the sliding doors open daytime, you have the whole house well ventilated which give the touch of a Bali style house where exterior and interior blends together seamlessly.

Step out on the open pool deck 44 sq. m. and meet the nature with sun loungers, more table and chairs, hammocks and the small pool facing the ocean. An outdoor shower is also available on the side of the pool.

It is well worth mentioning that a totally new electric system is installed with auto safety breakers or RCDs and there are electric outlets everywhere to convenient plug in your mobile charger when needed. There are several dimmers throughout the house that can detailed set the sought after atmosphere you need after sunset to mach your mood. Fire extinguisher is installed both on ground floor and upper floor.

If you rent a long tail boat, we can sort that out for a round trip to the mangrove forest or some of the nearby islands in this beautiful archipelago.

Other things to note
Before arrival:
The address for your arrival card is
Hua Lem
145/1001, Moo 1
Koh Lanta Yai, Krabi 811 50

Arrival day:
Upon check-in and handing over the key, we read the meters for electric. Since this unit is not a resort nor a hotel but categorised as a self catered, privately owned villa the electric is charged as a separate utility where each guest pay for what they use. Estimated cost for normal use for this specific unit is 500 THB/week and we collect that amount as cash upon check-in. We read the meters at check-out and the majority of our guests are usually getting a refund.
There is a welcome sign with important phone numbers and the WiFi log in. We show you the unit with everything you need to know, where to throw you garbage and what’s towels you use indoor and if there are towels you can use at the pool.

Second visit:
We make a second visit, usually the day after, to check everything is running smooth and if there are anything you want to have more details about. We point out where you can rent motorbikes or have our tour shop visit you if you want to do any excursions.

We also agree on checkout time and coordinate that with transfer departure so there is a margin to go through the unit as a part of the check out routine, read electric meters and balance the cost towards the deposit made at check-in.

Transfer service:
It is convenient to go with our air conditioned minivan with a driver that takes you directly to the villa. Price example 2900 THB from Krabi airport one way. Special discounts applies when booking return transfer at the same time. No waiting hours, we check you in upon arrival at the unit when you book transfer with us!

On departure day:
You prepare the laundry in the laundry bag and put it at entrance door. One set of bed linen and one towel per person is included in the cleaning fee charged.
We also ask you to make up the dishes and empty the garbage before leaving.

Location

Krabi, Thailand

A sea front villa, facing east and the sunrise, where the high tide floats under the house and gives you a natural connection to the nature. The villa attracts the creative guest that enjoy and looking for an ecological way of living. Bring your yoga mats, finish your book project or go with the flow by combining your creativity mixed with relaxation for an effortless stay. Here it's natural to show respect to the local people that are not so used to tourists that we find on the west coast of Koh Lanta. With a motorbike you reach the cultural center a kilometer away - Lanta old Town - that has stores, restaurants and pier for excursions when needed. There are plenty of spots along the main road continuing even more south that offers great restaurants with stunning sea view.
