Raewyn and Charlie were lovely hosts and their cottage is a real oasis in Bangkok. It's quite a way from the centre (we found the river bus the best option but it takes about an hour as you have to get a bus to the pier) so if you're interested in nightlife it wouldn't be the best. For us it was perfect. Clean, comfortable, spacious, an area to prepare food and hosts who were there when you need them but not 'in your face'. We had a lovely lunch with Charlie, Raewyn and the other guests one day and really appreciated the swimming pool.
What can I say Raewyn and Charlie...I wish there were more people like them. Place itself was wondrous in its own way in real thai suburb. Quiet, garden setting, trees, walkways...like mini botanical garden. Small shops 50-60m away, good thai food restaurants 20 min walk, 10-15 min bus ride to big market area and Nothaburi Pier where you can catch shutle boat to near down town and Sky Train. We did stay 11 days at Raewyns and Charlies place.
We were happy to be guests of Charlie and Rawyen! This house in a tropical garden is a very quiet and peaceful place in the bustling Bangkok. To the city center is easily accessible by transport. When we visit Bangkok next time, we will certainly stay here again!
What can I say?! :) We had a great time staying at Raewyn and Charlie's. They're great hosts and nice, loving people. The cottage itself is nice. It's not big but, actually, with the direct outside area visible on the pictures and, also, the rest of the huge garden and the separate kitchen/dining area, it's fine. We stayed a month here and could have stayed longer.
The swimming-pool, the pool table and the garden setting (little geckos everywhere!) make for a really nice place. We'll definitely come again if we've got the chance.
Charlie and Raewyn are home from home. The accommodation is clean, spacious, set in a gorgeous, peaceful garden with a refreshing pool. It is such a relief after long, hot days in Bangkok to get 'home', where you don't really feel like you are in a city at all.
C and R are so helpful, and welcoming, they are born hosts and it really shows that they love their work. They were really helpful with us, offering lifts, sorting out shipping, helping with storage, laying on food and get togethers for the guests.
I really couldn't recommend them high enough - if you are looking for affordable, peaceful, welcoming accommodation in spitting distance of Bangkok city then look no further - home awaits you!
Raewyn and hẻr husband Charlie have been helpful and good fun. Charlie even decorated hís windmill with lights for Christmas. The garden where the cottages are situated ís lovely. With squirrels and all. It ís a bit òf way from the center of the city but then again you appreciate the calm when you come back to the garden.
Since I should keep this place secret from the world I should write the worst possible review I could imagine, but my conscience will not allow me to say anything negative. Our host were extremely gracious and our accommodations were excellent. There property is a perfect slice of paradise just outside of downtown Bangkok. We really had to push ourselves to leave it and go explore the sights of the city. We originally booked for 1 week and extended our stay for another 1 1/2 weeks and will book it again for the month of March. Finding this place was the best possible luck in all of our travels. I have never said, "thank you for letting me stay here, it has been a real privilege" before but, " THANK YOU FOR LETTING US STAY HERE". Not only has it been a privilege but it has been a honor to know you.
