Thanks for the shout out, Dude. If any of your listeners need a nice spot to stay while in Thailand, may I be so bold as to recommend our BNB?

Allow me to spell it out - Wow!

You get a luxurious and spacious private suite with two bedrooms, private bathroom, sitting room, fast wifi, large balconies, swimming pool, exercise area, private entrance and a self cooked breakfast. There's a Thai market nearby, as well as a 7-11 and an ATM machine. We have an outdoor kitchen you can use if you're up for a bit of cooking. Thai cooking lessons and Thai massage are available too! Fabulous for couples and groups, as well as anyone else hoping to experience the REAL Thailand.

The space

Five km south of the famous White temple, aka Wat Rong Kun. Easy access to great trails suitable for intrepid cyclists and hikers. If you take a taxi, tell the driver "Phom bai Baan Pakodam krap/kha". If you need to name a stopping point, get off at the 7-11 and then I will come and get you.

Guest access

Guests are encouraged to swim in the saltwater pool, enjoy outdoor sitting areas or chill beside a water fountain, watching many Japanese koi swim about. You have access to a lovely outdoor kitchen, which has gas cooking and ample food prep areas. There's a new washing machine out there too, with large mobile drying rack. If you're feeling energetic before your swim, there's a spacious exercise room with bench, barbells, stepping machine, etc...plug in your music to my speakers and enjoy!

Interaction with guests

As much as the guests appreciate. We are happy to host children, as long as they are over 12 years old as there are too many pools and fish ponds for us to worry about with younger kids.

If you're interested in learning Thai cooking, you've hit the jackpot, as Fern is a highly experienced teacher and will happily teach you how to cook a delicious lunch after she takes you to the market and shows you how to source the ingredients. Lessons pricing and details available upon request via Airbnb messaging / email. If you like massages, we also have a massage area, with two masseuses ready to pummel you into submission! (Just kidding - they're usually gentle)

Other things to note

As we are located outside of the main town, it would be a good idea to either rent a car, a motorbike or get a van with a driver. If you need help with arrangements, we can assist.
