Host Review Score

Nisit Cherngchang and Ulf Mikaelsson
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.
Your hosts Ulf and Nisit have been married since 2012 and a couple since 2005. Ulf moved to Thailand 1998 and started Connect Guesthouse until sold in 2011. After 13 years in the gay hospitality business in Patong, it was time for a more quiet life at Phuket Gay Homestay. Nisit has experience from the Banking business with ABM Ambro, Bank of Asia, UOB, SCB and now with AIA insurance.
Our homestay is located in a small village next to a rubber tree farm and the jungle of Patong hill. You can easily walk up-hill to Bangtong temple or down the road to Thong Dee Restaurant, one of the highest-ranking restaurants in Phuket. Closeby in the area you have several street-food vendors selling local food at low prices. Within 1 km you have 7-11 and family mart convenience stores and they have ATM machines for cash withdrawals. 2 km away you have the Bang Wad Dam recreational area. Its a 7 km road for exercise or bicycling in the jungle at the freshwater dam surrounded by lush green mountains. We do regular morning walks here at sunrise. Guests are welcome to join. Kathu area has a local fresh market, school, banks, gasoline station and several Thai and International restaurants.
