  • Hi, Do you have nice and beautiful (not too crowded or touristy) beaches within a reasonable driving distance from your accommodation? What would be an approximate taxi fare to reach some of the nicest beaches from your accommodation? Kind regards, Jack.
    Hi. Phuket has over 40 beaches. The nearest Patong Beach is just 3 km away. We have bicycles, motorbike and e-scooter for hire. Use the Grab taxi or Hello Phuket app for a taxi.

  • Hi, I’ve read great reviews about your breakfast. However, while not a vegetarian, I don’t usually eat meat, or anything fried for breakfast. Would you be able to provide poached eggs (with salmon?), or rolled oats/porridge with fruit? Yoghurt? Green tea? Coffee? Happy to pay for that. Thanks, Jack.
    Hi, yes of course you can have all you ask for in your email. I myself usually eat oat porridge with some fruit

Property info

In Thailand you will find that almost every hotel is gay friendly so how is this place different from everything else? Our customers are telling us that it is very different. It's not a hotel, guesthouse or a room for rent. It's almost like at home. It's really a homestay. Our returning guests tells us every visit brings new experiences and new friends. With only 5 rooms and a maximum of 10 simultaneous guest it's easy to befriend the other guests or be totally private. Usually negotiations around the breakfast table enables a variety of activities together. Sometimes there is an excursion to explore the gorgeous beaches and stunning nature of the magic Island, the market or to indulge the nightlife in Patong. If you just want to relax, hang out by the pool. If you need to work we can assure you about good Internet speed, free of charge. Phuket gay homestay is located in Kathu and therefore close to both Patong and Phuket town and also the most popular beaches.
