We absolutely loved this space and the location. We rose with the sun and went to bed well before sunset (basically slept according to the tides as the roar of waves under the bed made sleeping a bit of a challenge - perhaps bringing ear plugs would be helpful for others who are sensitive to waves under the floor of the bed/house and who are susceptible to motion sickness). It's very private and comfortable to sit out on the deck gazing into the sea for hours and catching glimpses of the local fishermen checking their nets or setting off for the day. The water was, however, never clear, and didn't seem quite sanitary enough for swimming. As for mosquitoes, plenty of coils and spray were provided, which was helpful as they are in various stages of breeding in the cistern used for Thai style toilet flushing and bathing when the water gets cut off. Again, we loved the neighborhood. It was not touristy and we felt quite close to the local life.
A truely amazing house we rented of Susanna. The house is in exellent condition and Susanna was very helpful right from the start.
It is fantastic to sit in the Living room and hear the waves under the floorboards. Susanna also provide a Big folder with all the right tips and tricks. :-)
I would strongly recommend this house to everybody
Friendly helpful host. Lovely calm relaxing house deck with a permanent good breeze to keep you cool. Would definitely return.
Loved the Lychee house...very relaxing...and loved the overall feel of old town Lanta.
This house is great and it seems much bigger in person than comes across in the photos, sitting out on the sea is so peaceful and a really calming influence. We hired a bike from next door and cruised round the island visiting lots of different places, something that we may not have done if we were staying on the other side of the island where it is busier. We definitely experienced some real Thai life and it was very interesting.
It was really nice sleeping in the top room, but we ended up sleeping in the air con closed room as we were getting bitten a bit by mosquitoes, we worked out that they were mainly in the bathroom though so just bare that in mind.
We really loved Koh Lanta and hope that the bridge that is being built doesn't bring too much development with it as it's all quite sympathetic at the moment.
The. t house is very charming overlooking the rice field, it's simple, open to the nature, in the countryside. It's at 4 kilometer from Ubud, in a quiet area, yet due to the distance you need a mean of transport (motorbike or taxi)
Yet, some points are to be mentionned, points which explained I live the house earlier than expected.
- the number of villa sharing the pool (12 villas), the green T villa is just over the swimming pool, it's noisy, with the childrens playing and shouting all day long -especially during the holidays period
- the cleanliness of the house, which is open to the nature, have to be improved (the bathroom, towels, kitchen,...) were not clean enough to my point of view
- the wifi performance is very uncertain
If it's laid back and private In a small fishing village then you have found the place. Susanna is a friendly and gracious host. She can set you up on how to find the excitement. We chose to lay back, read and decompress after a
Long flight from Canada. We stayed for four days and loved the village and the friendly people who live there. It would make a perfect base from which to discover the rest of the island while having a soulful retreat to return to.
Lychee House was absolutely incredible. It looks better in person than in the pictures. Koh Lanta is a great place to spend some time on.
We can't believe how incredibly helpful, open and friendly our host, Susanna has been throughout our stay in Coconut House. Nothing was too much trouble, she picked up chargers for us, offered us lifts, and advised when we lost our bank card! Not only this but she was generous with her time and company, treating us like old friends, and even inviting us out to dinner and out on a private trip with her friends! The house itself is simply beautiful and full of little touches, including some of Susanna's own watercolours! The kitchen was incredibly well equipped including a blender and Susanna continually added things, giving us a mini oven when it neared Christmas to make roasties and a moka coffee maker because she heard we liked coffee! The view is stunning and Old Town so peaceful and authentic - we are very glad we chose to stay on this side of the island. Susanna operates a small and intimate group tour company by longtail boat and it is also possible to hire kayaks and bikes in the town. Susanna often dropped round with little tips about new market stalls in town and helpful advice, often imparted over a glass of wine on the deck! Enjoy your stay - and we recommend sleeping outside on the deck if the weather permits! We are immensely grateful to Susanna for everything she did so openly and enthusiastically to give us the best stay we could wish for. We wish her all the best for the future.
Everything was great, lovely house, lovely location and Susanna was very friendly and helpful. Great experience. We will return some day!
Susanna and his brother are absolutely great guest.
Susanna and I first met as housemates in Bali 3 years ago and we have been good friends and travel partners ever since. Susanna is a wise and inspiring traveller and artist. I find her special skill with effectively interacting with an array of personalities and instantly making new friends feel like old friends. She is always willing to help any way she can and holds an unmatched generous spirit. I know I can always count on Susanna for anything at all -- so kind and reliable. I recommend Susanna to other AirBnb members because of her kindness, humility, and fair attitude. I often spot Susanna on her computer emailing with guests and staff to make sure everything is in proper order and time. You will be well taken care of with Susanna!
