I will do my best to accommodate your needs while staying with us here in Krabi.
Lana and Olivier were really good, friendly, and caring hosts who provided us with help and information, when we needed it. Apartment cleaning times were arranged the day after our arrival and everything worked out fine.
Luckily, we didn't get a condo with only one bedroom - we actually got a condo with two bedrooms and two bathrooms on the fifth floor! :D This was really great, since we were staying with an 1 y/o infant and had more room than expected. Besides that, everything was very clean, modern and equipped as described. The view towards pool and sea is fantastic!
What is clearly missing in the listing is the extra charge for electricity. It cost us 7 THB per kWh, which is not cheap and can turn out quite costly if you use AC, water heating or the cooktop a lot.
The "washer" turned out to be a laundry service, which will cost you 60 THB (no ironing) or 80 THB (with ironing) per kilogram. You hand your dirty clothes over at the reception and get it back clean the next day.
The At Sea Condo is a clean and safe place where you'll meet Thais only as workforce. Pool and gym are well maintained and there is a Danish couple which runs a small shop, where you can buy drinking water and other things.
Outside the condo, you have quite a choice of small restaurants (we recommend Bai Tong, which is also the nearest) and massage parlors along the main road. There are also two small shops and one fruit shop nearby. The nearest 7/11 is about 700 meters away. The road is heavily frequented by huge trucks which transport something to the ship loading ramp north of Klong Muang, but don't worry, you don't hear them in the apartment.
Klong Muang itself has a nice beach (about 600 meters south of the condo) which is used mostly by resort guests. The next beaches are around Ao Nang, which is about 11 kilometers away. So you need transportation. The taxis in Krabi are very expensive! Some examples (one way): Taxi to Ao Nang costs 400-500 THB. To Krabi Town it's 600-700 THB. Coming from Bangkok where every taxi has a meter and you seldomly reached 200 THB, this was quite shocking for us. To get around cheaper (and since there is no public transportation) you should rent a motorbike or a car. Many attractions include a pick up service - even from Klong Muang, which is apart from nearly all attractions. Krabi Town for example is very nice and not nearly as touristy as Ao Nang, but it's 24 kilometers away...
All in all a comfortable and modern place to stay in a locality which has - besides the beach - nothing more to offer than facilities targeted at wealthy resort guests. But, as I wrote above, there are ways to get to other places and Lana and Olivier are helping you, too.
Спасибо хозяевам за оказанный прием и заботу. Все было на отлично.
Nice welcome, we were kooked up with detailed information to find our way around. They also organised us a motorbike and (highly recomended if you go with family) a Tuk Tuk for rent. So we had an easy start and could enjoy the studio and the complex. The studio was very clean, lot of space and nice balcony. The pool was nice as well, plus good little pool for children.
Around are some restaurants and bars, but you need a ride - there is just not much to do. The nearby beaches are allright, not great but mostly very quiet with really nice sunsets.
Fantastic apartment and very friendly hosts. We hope we can return one day!
Lana and Olivier are fantastic hosts. They were very warm and kind and went above and beyond for us-- even taking us to the grocery store and helping us arrange excursions and taxis. They really cared to ensure that we had a great experience. The condo is wonderful-- very clean and in a lovely complex a stone's throw from several great beaches. A number of great restaurants, etc. in short walking distance, and Ao Nang and Krabi are close enough. Our beaches had all the beauty and none of the crowds. I traveled with 3 friends, and we were very sad to leave. I'd go back in a heartbeat.
This whole place, the apartment as well as the pool area is just BRILLIANT. Lana was very helpfull and kind. The beach at Klong Muang is so beatiful and not spoiled by tourism.. My wife, daughter and I stayed for four nights and wished we could have stayed longer.
Simply amazing experience. Lana and Olivier were welcoming, caring, supportive and fair. It felt more like staying with friends and even family than renting from someone we've never met before. They arranged a private boat tour for us, took me to the local diving shop which was a great experience.
It was by far the best choice i've made in many trips - the experience was fantastic, and the price much cheaper than anywhere else and i have looked for a long time to accommodate 3 adults and a 3 yr old kid - impossible in a 1 room hotel. 2 bedroom apartment with a balcony made us feel royal :) proximity to sea was much appreciated as well. In short - highly recommended and would love to stay again!
The owners were friendly and very helpful with arranging the local trips as well as with recommendation for restaurants and other sights. They were always available and easily accessible. The apartment was clean and spacious, all rooms were air conditioned. The place was nice and quiet and only 5 minutes walk to a beach. There was a nice pool and a well equipped gym. There were enough restaurants to choose from and a convenience shop within walking distance. Though the place is relatively far from Krabi airport (about 30 minutes drive) it is easily accessible with a taxi that cost about 13 Euro. I would definitely recommend the place! Many thanks Olivier and Lana.
Very nice stay. The host was very friendly and helpful.Apartment was in a very good condition and located close to the beach as well as to some restaurants, massage places and shops. Highly recommended.
Apartment was nice and host was very helpful in many ways. Even organised us a cheap rental motorbike. Many thanks.
