Interaction with guests

Other things to note

Responding to guests's suggestion, we have just improved the mattresses in both bedrooms by adding a layer of soft topper to the natural rubber, base mattress. This makes he mattress more gentle and softer, pleasant for a good sleep. We hope that our guests will enjoy every aspect, every minute of their stay in our house.

I stayed at the Hillside of Krabi during my vacation to Thailand. Pavin and Subarb were the perfect host. They were very responsive before the booking and during my stay. On my drive to the property, I got lost and Pavin took the time to meet me where I was, and led me to property. The property is in the perfect location. It is central to everything for those who are looking to explore Krabi. It is off the beaten paths and is in a real quiet area away from the noise. The house is situated in a garden like-like setting with lots of exotic flowers, fruit-trees, birds, and the mountain in the backdrop. It is a relatively short taxi ride to the beaches including Ao Nang beach, close to Krabi town, and to the waterfalls and the Emerald pool and other sites. The house is simply an amazing space. It looks better than in the pictures. The bedrooms are very large and the space is bright and feels very zen-like. The AC in the bedrooms and the fan in the living room keeps the entire space nice and cool. The space is very, very, clean. You will have everything in the space to make you feel like you are staying in a high end villa. There is more than adequate towels and tioletries and utensils. The restuarants across the street on the main road are really excellent Thai food and great value for your money. I would suggest trying them during your stay. I use Airbnb for most of my travel throughout the world, and Pavin and Subarb's home ranks in my top 3 places that I have ever stayed. It is EXCELLENT value for your money. I plan to stay here in the future when I am in Krabi again. I can't wait to return.

We really enjoyed our stay out the house. We were only in the area for a couples days but it was very centrally located. The Krabi 'bus' was easy to hop on and off. We even were able to get one to take us to the temple and come back later to pick us up. The restaurants across the road were both very good and one was open late. Our host was very helpful in arranging airport transportation and was around for any questions. Two things to note about the house. A previous reviewer stated the living room was too hot because of the lack of A/C but Suparb was helpful in saying the keep the bedroom doors open to cool the house. The neighborhood dogs can be early risers so ear plugs might be needed but it did not bother us. In summary, the host was very accommodating and the house is beautiful and centrally located.

Response from Pavin&Suparb:
Thanks, Stephen, for your kind review. The two issues you raised are justified and much appreciated. We have been reluctant to put an air conditioner in the living room. The house was designed to embrace the fresh and clean air and tropical breeze, especially through the open living room with large glass doors and windows. To put an air cond. in it would shut all the glass windows and prevent our guests from enjoying the tropical environment. We compromise with this by allowing the air conditioner only in the bedrooms, which can share the cool air with the living room in the evening. About the neighborhood dogs that howl at night, we will provide ear plugs for the future guests as you suggested. On the other hand, we have been collaborating with our neighbors to tame their dogs so that they don't howl at night. Overall we believe that our guests enjoyed the peaceful and environmentally friendly neighborhood.

We have loved to stay in this charming house surrounded by the jungle. It was extremely confortable . The place is very spacious and look even better than the photos description. Very clean with all commodities. It is located just half way from the beautifull beach of Ao Nang and Krabi city center that you both reach by taxi in just 10 minutes . We have particularly enjoyed the local restaurant on the other side of the street. Pavinee is the perfect host : extremely kind and full of attentions. She has organised day trip and taxis for us. She also brought us to taste some local food specialities . We would definitely come back. Highly recommended.

The house is even bigger and more beautifull then you see on the pictures! It is a couple of km's to Ao Nang and shuttle bus rides every 20 mins. So close to a touristic place but the calmth and nature of outside town. 2 big bedrooms with their own toillet and shower and the owners are very friendly and welcoming and willing to make a chat with you!

We loved this house! It was modern , light and spacious without losing its intrinsic Thai feel. Pravinee welcomed us very warmly and was very friendly and helpful. I loved the cool verandahs for enjoying a cup of coffee or wine and a book. It is set in a pretty typical Thai neibourhood with good local restaurants within walking distance. Krabi town is also not far away. It was immaculately clean and well equipped and Pravinee will cook a delicious Thai meal for you if you don't feel like going out. We're going back!

Pavinee is wonderful host. She helped us with information and maps. Neighborhood is wonderful natural setting with trees and garden. House is neet and well organized. We had wonderful stay with family. Minor let downs are: dogs barking at night in neighbors houses, no air conditioning in living area.
Pavin&Suparb User Profile
Response from Pavin&Suparb:
Prabhat, your kind review is much appreciated. We have long and seriously thought and argued a lot about adding an air conditioner in the living room. Generally we agreed with your advice. We have designed the house to suit the tropical climate with lots of large windows and large living room, opened to let the breez flows through. So we were reluctant to put air-cond. in the living room, which will deprive us of the tropical nature. Not to talk about the energy bills. For a compromise, we will add an alternative air-conditioner - cum fan, which is as good as an air cond unit, but gives more pleasant experience and more affordable in terms of energy bills. As for the neighbor's dogs barking at night, we cannot do much about them. We have come to accept them as part of a rural lifestyle, which is healthy and friendly. We will improve the signboard view at night to make it more easily visible. We will also change the cooking utensils that are not working well, as we also did during your stay. All in all, your comments are very valuable. We much appreciated. We were happy that you and your family enjoyed staying in our place. You and family are welcome back during the fruit seasons. We have plenty of good durians and rambutans this year. They are will be ripe in July-August. We are more than happy to share them with our guests, which we usually do every season.

Beautiful villa surrounded by lush greenery and a great view! We really enjoyed our mornings on the patio with the sound of the trees and birds. The house is gorgeous - full of light, with large windows letting in the breeze. It was also really comfortable and beautifully appointed. Keow was a great host, she made sure we were comfortable even though she was extremely busy. She gave us fresh fruit from her garden and recommended restaurants for us to try. The villa is located on a little street off the main highway connecting Krabi town and Ao Nang. Keow helped us rent a car while we were there and it was really easy to get around, Krabi town and Ao Nang are both a short drive away. We'd love to visit again and stay longer!

Hey, we are Pavinee & Suparb! We share our home. We make guests feel belong. Pavinee lives next door to The Hillside of Krabi. She manages the Hillside of Krabi and six deluxe apartments, a villa in Ao Nang and a small hotel in town. Suparb lives and works in Bangkok.
We built The Hillside of Krabi for ourselves to live in when Suparb is retired. For now, we share it to pay the loan. Although we live apart, we work closely together to offer the best home and hospitality to our guests.

We love cooking. We are proud of Andaman style Southern Thai cuisine, a fine mixed between local Malay and migrant Chinese food known as peranakan.
Sharing makes the world a better place to live in!
