Guest reviews:
"Perched safely on the steep hillside between Patong and Karon, this family owned and operated hotel offers stunning panoramic ocean views and a boutique atmosphere on a budget. Only three minutes from the hustle and bustle of  Patong and Karon's
busy shopping and nightlife, this peaceful haven provides million dollar views from almost every room - just look at the photo gallery-, while others lay nestled in the garden, shaded by mature trees- no traffic noise, no blaring music. All of the clean, bright and airy rooms have air-con, satellite television, wi-fi and easy access to the private pool and tranquil beach lies just down the steps at the foot of the hill.

Grandfather and mother bought this delightful sanctuary in 1980, and have slowly and lovingly developed it through the years, planting even more trees, and building in sympathy with the natural garden ambiance. With the help of son Joe, his wife Noo and sister Pung, who runs the look-out cafe, the whole family, and their staff, take grate pride in caring for their guests and happily provide any information, assistance or help you might need to make your stay more interesting, more enjoyable and more fun."

Von Patong kommend, befindet sich das Hotel unmittelbar neben der Straße. Wenn man aussteigt und zur Rezeption geht, erkennt man sofort, welches Juwel man da gefunden hat: Hoch über dem Indischen Ozean, den gesamten Karon Beach überblickend, ist das kleine Hotel, in welchem man, sofern man keine Sterne-Ausstattung verlangt, für ca. 25 Euro pro Doppelzimmer und Nacht, liebevoll umsorgt ein paar Tage verbringen kann. Großer Swimmingpool und ein kleines Restaurant mit Traumblick vorhanden. Anmietung von Motorrädern möglich

Coming from Patong, the hotel is situated directly beside the road. If you get off and the reception goes, you can immediately see which jewel you have there found: high above the Indian Ocean, overlooking the entire Karon Beach, is the small hotel, which in some, if required by you no star facilities, for approximately . € 25 per double room per night, can lovingly cared to spend a few days. Large swimming pool and a small restaurant with stunning views available. Renting of motorcycles possible


Quiet and Comfortable

I stayed for 5 nights while training in Muay Thai at the nearby Patong Boxing Gym (also highly recommended). As other reviewers mentioned, the owners Joe and Noo really treat the guests like family and go out of their way to make sure guests are comfortable. The hotel is located away from the craziness of Patong and just outside of Karon, but consider that if you want something for dinner generally you have to commute to one of those areas as there are no restaurants in walking distance, other than one restaurant down the hill towards the beach which is part of another hotel. The room was fairly large and clean; wifi connection is free but was spotty at times.

Motorbikes are available for rent at about $6 USD per day - also recommended to get around since taxis in Phuket overcharge compared to the rest of Thailand. They can also arrange airport transfers and other tours. All in all, for the price, location, and experience this hotel is a great value.
