Charlie and Raewyn could not have been better hosts.
They were warm and helpful.
Our room was clean and well turned out with a comfortable bed, television, fan, AC, ensuite bathroom and balcony. The room, set in a beautiful garden with fruit trees and ponds with huge fish, is part of Charlie's family compound situated on a peaceful canal near a local temple. It is a surprisingly tranquil setting for Bangkok, in a lovely community, and was a great retreat from the tourists and craziness of the central city.
We ate seriously good food locally on the street and had great fun going to local markets and catching local buses and the water taxi into town. Charlie's sister cooked us a delicious Thai feast one night when we were too tired to go out but most of all Charlie, Raewyn and Charlie's family were great company and endlessly helpful.
This is a quiet oasis in the middle of the action. The property feels like you are in a far-away garden with nice little picturesque areas to explore and photograph. However, you need only step out of the gate to find everything else you need--shops, street-side vendors, a temple, friendly neighbors. If you want a bigger shopping experience the Big C mall is within walking distance or you can catch one of the frequent buses on the nearby road. The ferry is about a 15 minute bus ride away and it stops at piers serving several areas. It takes about 45 minutes to get to the Bangkok city pier but the ferry experience is worth it (plus it is faster and cheaper, avoiding all the traffic on the roads).
My room was immaculate and comfortable. The fully-equipped community kitchen area includes a large pavilion with plenty of tables for visiting with other guests or siting quietly by yourself, if you wish. They even have a sparklingly clean pool for a refreshing swim on a hot day.
Raewyn and Charlie are fantastic hosts and they truly want their guests to feel at home. The entire family welcomed me as if I was returning home from a long journey, which is just what this weary traveler needed. Everyone is so respectful of your privacy but ready for a chat if you want some company. If you find you need something, just ask and you'll receive it or get advice on where to find it. Raewyn even took the time to drive me to get medical help and then stayed with me to help with any language issues. I also indulged in two of the services provided by other family members, both at excellent rates and without leaving the property--a professional haircut by the sister-in-law stylist and delicious home-cooked Thai meals by Charlie's sister. Be sure to read the information packet to learn about all the services offered at great prices.
This is the perfect place, whether for a short or long term stay. When I return to Thailand, I hope there is an open room for me here.
It was an absolutel pleasure to stay here for two weeks. Raewyn and Charlie went out of their way to make my stay a pleasant one. Their property is a quiet tropical oasis on the outer fringe of a very large city.
My accommodation was first class and I really appreciated the peace and quiet and also the darkness at night - no street lights or passing cars.
I recommend if you come and stay that you get Raewyn to collect you from the airport because finding it for the first time could be challenging.
I enjoyed meeting Charlie's Thai family who are charming people that make you feel very welcome.
Facilities are very good indeed with a nice area for relaxing and a well maintained swimming pool. There are some local shops and food stalls within easy walking distance.
Loved it and will definitely return.
