눉Whereas globally we were very happy with our stay and would recommend the place to everyone, there are some minor inconveniences: - the kitchen, the bathroom and the bed sheets are a bit old-fashioned (it didn't bother us, but I expected something more modern on the basis of the photos). What I found less appealing was the old stains on the bed sheets. - you have to empty your garbage yourself, and the place to put it is a bit further away, so you have to carry your garbage on the street - when we ran out of toilet paper, we had to buy it ourselves - not a big issue, you just have to think of it - the electricity consumption is not included in the price (to give you an idea of the amount, we paid 228 baht for 7 nights and we put the air conditioning only for sleeping). But again, these are just minor issues and we were very happy with Reuan Phaolai.
눇We were very satisfied with this well-located and calm bungalow. We particularly appreciated the availability and the helpfulness of the owners (they even printed for us an official document). If you plan a trip, do not hesitate to ask advice from Ying (David's wife): we took a flight from Surat Thani to Bangkok and it is a bit complicated to get to the airport (transfer to the pier, ferry and then bus to Surat Thani). Only the ferry ticket would have cost 700 baht (plus the different transfers), but in less than 5 minutes, Ying managed to organize our whole journey for 600 baht, everything included. We also liked the terrace and the garden (with exotic butterflies and the smell of jasmine) which is very well maintained. The daily water refill was also very handy (you get a bottle of 6 liters of drinking water every day and free of charge, so no need to carry them from the supermarket). All in all, excellent value for money. We would also like to share some tips with you: - if you would like to try the Thai massage, I would recommend the Cyan Spa institute in the Fishermen's village. It is just a little more expensive than what you would find on the street (350 baht / hour instead of 300 baht), but at least you know that they are certified masseurs - you should try the Zazen restaurant for a dinner: the prices are like in an average Western-European restaurant, but the place is exceptional and you feel like in a fairy tale. On Thursdays and Sundays, there is a traditional dance spectacle starting at 8 PM - don't miss it!

눉Kitchen furniture and appliances need refurbish or upgrade.
눇Very friendly staff, quiet place, beautiful vegetation, nice villas for families with children and a perfect pool for relaxation or meditation. The owner, Dave, was very helpful to all the problems occurred during our whole eleven days vacation and even contacted me in advance for transportation and directions.

눉We have rented two apartments but one of them lacked mosquito net. So had to use air conditioning even when the temperature outside was pleasant. Bathroom needs some improvements.
눇This property has a very nice garden and pool. It's near the beach and the main road, but still quiet. Ying and David are very kind and help immediately when needed and give very good suggestions where to go and what to do. Best beach nearby is at Santiburi Beach Resort.
