Lilly ist ein kleines gemütliches Bungalow, das mit allem ausgestattet ist was man als Urlauber braucht.
Ich habe mich mit meiner Freundin hier sehr wohl gefühlt und kann das Bungalow nur empfehlen.
Man sollte allerdings über einen fahrbaren Untersatz verfügen oder einen mieten.
Die Hosts sind herzlich und hilfsbereit.
Ein schönes Plätzchen wenn man fern vom Rummel entspannen will!
The villa was a gorgeous property in a lovely, quiet and well maintained neighborhood. Sunrises and sunsets were beautiful and tranquil. The views of the mountains behind the house were just breathtaking on clear days. The house itself is well furnished with beautiful wood cabinetry and comfortable beds and chairs. I felt like I was home from the moment I took off my shoes. The pool was just as described and cleaned daily (which was much appreciated!).
The host, Bruce, and the community manager, K. Jum, were so kind and welcoming. They were both incredibly responsive to issues and requests. At one point the wifi was not working (due to weather) and Bruce was at the house within an hour to help.
My one critique was that the private beach was more where rocky land met sea than sandy beach. It was fine to lounge about and swim in the water, but it's very different than the beaches on the western part of the island (it's not powdery, sandy like white sand beach, for example). It was still beautiful, but I was expecting something else from the photos. Not a terribly big deal. I just wore water shoes the whole time and it was fine.
The home is definitely off the beaten path so I would strongly urge anyone considering staying to be prepared to rent a motorbike or car (which Bruce can help with at fair rates). Otherwise, taxis will get expensive quickly.
Overall, I was impressed and wanted to stay longer.
Our stay at the maple cottage was beautiful! We got picked up at the ferry station and she gave us the opportunity to buy some things at a grocery store that was perfect! The house is located on the lonely side of the island and to restaurants and the white sand beach it is about 10 minutes by car. You definitely need a car or a motor bike but you can rent this easily from your host. The house is new and well equipped! I can recommend staying at the maple cottage but keep in mind that it is a bit off the beaten track! Everybody at the maple cottage was helpful and unbelievable friendly!
We've stayed there for 3 days and we had a wonderful time in the house.Everything was super clean, the kitchen is fully furnished with all the tools you need if you want to cook by (website hidden) is a very quiet residence compared to the other side of the island which i find too much crowded.
K.Jum has been very helpful from the beginning until the end of the stay, giving us advises and recommendations.
The swimming pool was just steps away from the house.
It was a pleasure meeting Bruce in person as well.
We would absolutely recommend this place to anyone who wants to enjoy some good times with his family.
This is my 2nd stay at Bruce's villa. We didn't get to stay in this villa as it was struck by lightning and the electricity was down and so he upgraded us to a 4 bedroom beachfront villa with a lot of extra entertainment area and a nicer view. The main bedroom for the villa "lavender" was exceptional and spacious, a really nice treat.
We were using the villa as a working holiday so the space was great, kitchen very ample to cook for 6 people without tredding on other people's toes.
Whilst on the island we did some major hikes through the jungle and it was very challenging but rewarding. We recommend it to everyone who stays on Koh Chang.
We won't hesitate to recommend Bruce's villa's and use them again ourselves. 5/5 stars in terms of hospitality and quality.
Thank you kindly Bruce!
Thanks a lot Trent!
My fiancée and I just finished our 28 day stay at Baan Talay Thai and are so happy that we chose this place!
Being on the eastern side of Koh Chang, this quiet little community is tucked away, privately, 20 minutes or so from the main tourist strip of the White Sands. I recommend hiring a scooter for the duration of your stay, because there's lots to explore on the island, and all easily accessible with the scooter at your disposal.
The property owners are very friendly, accommodating and helpful. They're communication is fast, and since they also live within the village, any concerns you might have are dealt with promptly.
Our little bungalow (Lilac) was clean and tidy, and the perfect size for a young couple.
The beach wasn't what we had initially expected, as there's no sand, just pebbles. Still beautiful, and free access to the kayak was a plus. But as I said, the White Sand beach isn't too far by scooter if you're looking for that day on the beach with some waves and people around.
Would definitely come back here again! Maybe with a bigger group next time.
Thanks a lot Danny! I hope you are having a good trip!
I'll start by saying I thought it was possible to a bargain on Airbnb within Asia but this listing is an exception. A stunning weekend villa for family or group of friends.
NOTE: you will require a car as it's quite remote
We brought all of our food including meat, drinks and even our own BBQ/PS3/ Apple TV. On arrival the caretaker introduced us to local fisherman and in 15 years in Asia this was the freshest seafood we have eaten to date.
The house has all cooking utensils and BBQ and all you need to bring is food, ice and your sunscreen ... Everything else is provided within the house.
Location is set back from a rocky beach so don't expect to swim here but the pool is just 10 metres from the front door so that was perfect. The villa is a 5 minute drive (turn left) from the ferry and another 5 mins to local market/ 7-11 and convenience store.
House is an open plan downstairs suitable for lounging around and entertaining guests. Bedroom are roomy and very comfortable with modern bathrooms and wardrobes for clothes. Main bedroom has an awesome balcony and view of ocean.
The villa is within a quiet area so safe for kids and perfect for weekend getaway.
I highly recommend this villa. 5/5
Great place got great help finding this place
What a spectacular beach house! This is a great place to stay for families or groups of people, especially if you like to be right on the beach, be able to cook, and enjoy plenty of peace and quiet. Our hosts were very welcoming, helped us with any questions we had, and were very nice people. The neighborhood is a very small collections of nice homes with no businesses so it feels very isolated in a good way, the pool is great and the small beach relaxing. I would absolutely recommend staying here next time you're on Ko Chang!
Thanks a lot Todd! See you next time!
