The Space

The ideal retreat in this peaceful natural riverside resort for families and groups. Large communal space on 2nd floor with three queen size beds beneath mosquito netting by night. This bed is in a shared room for 1 or 2 persons. Large bathroom area with shower and toilet. All well ventilated with fans and a/c as required. Includes Buddhist altar with candles and incense for your meditations. All bedding and towels provided. Breakfast is included and other meals provided on request. Includes WiFi, TV, washer/dryer and use of kitchen facilities.
Resort also includes bicycles and a gorgeous Thai fishing trawler that is docked alongside on the river. You can cycle in to Chumphon within 30 minutes or ride around the area sightseeing. Day-trips aboard the trawler can be taken down the river to the port of Pak Nam and out into the Thai Gulf to a tranquil private island beach for fishing, snorkel diving and sunbathing activities. Enjoy this tropical location to relax your body and mind. Read or write a book. Massages available on call. Trips to local area sites like the hot mineral water spring. You will be met at Chumphon railway station or bus terminal on arrival and driven to the retreat.
Whenever the renown Thai chef Taw is in residence he will be giving cooking lessons in the kitchen at the resort. These will be the authentic Thai style cooking traditions that have made his restaurant in Washington DC so popular.

  • Traveling with a friend trough Thailand, I stayed at this place for four nights. The complementary pick-up-service from the ferry port is very convenient. Arrived at the place, we had a very nice and large apartment for us that is ideal to hang out and relax. Thanks to the bikes provided by the host family, we explored the area around and regularly rode to Chumpon that is about 30 min away. Activities beyond that are kindly offered by the host family for which they charge reasonable rates. As a highlight, we enjoyed a very nice and unique individual boat trip with the family-owned ship along the river to the open sea and a lonely island with snorkeling and swimming and jumping from the boat into the sea. This is among the best memories of our 5-week Thailand trip! For all three meals of the day great Thai food is offered and recommended by us. During our stay, Cpt. Apollo was not around which made the communication in English with the host family quite difficult. However, if you are not scared by that and looking for a nice and calm place off the beaten track to relax and hang out, this will be the place to go!

  • I recently returned to ThaiXing B&B Chumphon for my forth visit in 12 months; clearly, I love this place. Accommodation is simple, relaxed, clean and comfortable. People are helpful and friendly.
    In this natural setting on the beautiful Tha Taphap River, just off the beaten tourist track, I feel that I see the real Thailand here.
    Take a boat ride downstream on the Tha Taphap River through the bustling Thai fishing town; you wont see anything like this on the tourist trails; then out into the Thai Gulf and the amazing shapes of the island outcrops. It’s something else!!
    Chumphon Provence remains largely unspoiled, white sandy beaches dotted with palm trees abound in this region away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist trade.
    I've thoroughly enjoyed each stay at ThaiXing B&B Chumphon. I rate this place Awesome!!

  • I stayed for three nights and I must say that this place really was a hidden Thai treasure and gives reason alone to stay in the Chumphon. Thai X-ing is owned by one the best Thai chefs in Washington DC and this was incredibly clear as the food was the best that I had during my entire trip to Thailand, where only local ingredients are used and the standards are high . This was incredibly welcomed after the long train ride from Bangkok!

    The B&B is located along a lazy river surrounded by coconut and banana trees. The bamboo rafts and docks are a perfect place to collect your thoughts which listening to the local birds and coconuts periodically dropping from the trees. The incredibly flat landscape of the area also makes for a very relaxing bike ride (on bikes the B&B provides) through the jungle, allowing you to explore to your heart's delight.

    What can I say about the staff other than they were some of the friendliest people, taking my experience to another level. I was also lucky to arrive at Thai X-ing while Taw (the owner) was there, and he was kind enough to take me around for a tour of the surrounding area, as well as guide me through all the local vegetation (and how to cook with it!). We also were able to take the large former fishing boat that the B&B owns down the river and into the ocean to get a picturesque view of the Thai coastline.

    Ultimately there is no question that I will be back at Thai X-ing B&B. I would highly recommend it to any person who is looking to relax for a few days before heading into the tourist swarms of Ko Tao or Ko Phangan, and especially for someone who is looking to get away for a longer time and clear their mind to author a book or find inspiration. 10/10.

Casa degli Angeli
I started "Casa degli Angeli" in 2009. Every guest has loved my places and their locations. Our main building is located in a new developing area of Washington DC, adjacent to the Anacostia River where there is a beautiful boardwalk and areas for relaxation and entertainment. The riverwalk run across the bridges and up and down each side of the river is always a great experience. I am now retired and run this facility and several other apartments on the hill full time. We get people from all over the world and I love being special to them. I will welcome you on your arrival and give you a tour of the apartment to explain everything, then give you details on the neighborhood and the city. Whatever you want, I will do my best to get for you, before, during and after your stay. A new addition to my site is a retreat in exotic Thailand on a river outside the town of Chumphon.
