Our retro-style beach home will give you an exceptional experience like no others! Only 30 meters to the beach, it's tucked away in a quiet garden yet conveniently located opposite from a big mall with plenty of shops and restaurants.

The space

The Original Beach Home of Hua Hin
A retro-style Beach Home we call "Casa Rasdara" has been our family's vacation home since 1980s. Nested in a quiet garden where you can hear birds chirping during the day and cicadas singing at night, yet is only a few steps away from the sun, sand and city. The famous pristine Hua Hin beach is only 30 meters away, while malls, shops and restaurants are within a walking distance.

• Located in a private residential section inside a boutique resort "Baan Rajdamnern Hua Hin." Only 5 houses in this part.
• Property is well-fenced with 24 hours security guards.
• Ideal place for a small group of up to 4 adults seeking serenity of a vacation home but with a convenience of staffs ready to help near by.

We offer ONLY THE GROUND FLOOR of the house for rent. There are a total of 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms; a master bedroom INSIDE the house, and a guest bedroom OUTSIDE the house with an access through the terrace.

• Guest Bedroom (small room) offers; 1 King-Size bed, 1 small bathroom with warm shower and 1 clothes drawer.

**Please note that the guest bedroom ISN'T inside the house. The entrance door is at the terrace next to the house. The room is rather small but it fits 2 children or 2 average-sized adults quite OK. If you have small children and do not feel comfortable about having them sleeping separately, this house is not for you.**

Interaction with guests

We can be reached via Phone, SMS, LINE and e-mail. I usually check my messages regularly.

Other things to note

The house has been kept in its original shape since it was built in the 1980s. Though we did a few minor renovations every once in a while, most of the furniture are still the original ones. Thus they do show signs of pre-love and pre-used, which we think add charm. Please help us cherish our home like your own too!

• This is one of our homes and we really care for it! Please look after the place like it's your own.
• Please kindly take off your shoes before entering the house - It's an Asian thing. Don't worry, we do provide slippers for you.
• Smoking is not allowed inside the house and the bedrooms.
• No pets allowed.
• Maximum number of guests is 4 people. Extra guests maybe allowed for an extra fee.
• No outside guests are allowed to stay overnight in the house.
• If there is any damage of the house, furnitures, decorations, etc., occur during your stay, the value of the items will be estimated and will need to be paid for.
• OPEN FIRE BBQ IS NOT ALLOWED. Please do not attempt to grill the seafood directly on the gas stove, nor that we provide any BBQ facility. Our house is a wooden house, it's just too dangerous and too smelly. We suggest you eat out or buy the pre-cooked seafood to eat in for this matter.
• Please clean up after yourself. This includes washing your own dishes and glasses. And please no making big messes.
• Occasionally we do have neighbors staying at their vacation houses next door. We'd like to ask that you DO NOT make loud noises or have a wild party that will disturb them.
• Please help us conserve the energy. Please do not leave the light and A/C on while not in use. The reason we ask because we had guests that had the A/C on all day and night even when they're not in the house. Also we'd like to ask that you turn off the street lamps and terrace lights before going to bed so it doesn't bother our neighbors.

Thank you!

It's not a 2 bedroom condo. It's 2 one bedroom condos. I had 2 sets of keys to 2 different units.

Hi, thank you for your comment. We're sorry if our house layout and description might have confused you. However, we're pretty sure we have stated quite clearly in our description that the smaller bedroom is a connecting room to the house, thus it has it's own entrace which is accessed from the terrace. But your comment would prompt us to be more careful to clarify this point to our next guests in the future. Thank you.

House was very cozy and excellent location. My wife spoke with the owner who was a lovely older lady who was very hospitable to us. Would definitely recommend and stay again if they would have us.

Wonderful experience! First of all I have to say the location is very good, 7-11 and shopping mall very close to the house, walk to the beach only 2 mins, and the rooms are very beautiful, local style, cozy and comfortable. This is my first reservation on AIRBNB website,before I went to Hua Hin I was always worried about that if our driver can find this hourse or not, if there is any problem happened would somebody gonna help us... Lol... On the first day when we back to our room from the beach we'd like to take a warm water shower and suddenly we found that one of the water heater doesn't work well, we called the reception to ask help,they sent a staff to check but cannot fix the problem,they said they will change a new water heater! on the same time house owner Ms.Dowrai sent sms to me to apologize for the issue, and the staff really changed a new water heater in 2 hrs! so quickly!! This incident didn't ruin our vacation but make us feels like stay at home. Thank you so much for provider us a such beautiful home to stay,we all love it! Hope can stay more times in the near future.

Dowrai is very nice, friendly and helpful! She always response me very quick, she offer us an extra mattress freely for our baby initiatively, our baby love to stay on it all the time. I ask her to help me find a taxi who knows the resort and airport, and with a baby safety seat, she helped to contact to the resort and arrange me a very good big SUV with a very good price, thanks to her, we were very comfort for staying in Huahin. The house was very big and so closed to the sea and market village shopping mall. Even through the water and power of town was gone due to the struck by thunder accidentally, she tried to help us a lot, ordered extra water for us to clean up ourselves. We were leaving earlier because worried about the weather, Dowrai even tried to pay the taxi fare back to Bangkok for us, finally I let her to pay the cleaning fee to make both side felt better, she is so kind and courteous. I absolutely recommend Casa Rasdara for those who love to stay close to sea, convenience for daily life, Rasdara and Dowrai's house couldn't be better!

I have stayed here many times. It is such a great value. Dowrai is very flexible, very communicative, and just very easy to work with. If you like kite surfing, this is the best Airbnb I have ever seen for kite surfing. It is next door to the kite shop. They have lessons, they rent and sell equipment. It is so convenient. During this time of year, Hua Hin beach has the perfect wind. This home is removed from the beach by a gate and by trees. So it is calm and quiet; however, you can walk to the beach in one minute. It is superb.

We stayed at Casa Rasdara for one month with 1,5 year old child and adult parents. Communication with Dowrai always was a fast, problem-free and fluent English. Special thanks Dowrai, who has helped to resolve the issue with extra bed. The main advantages of the house: - Convenient location near the Market Village, where you can eat and spend time; - There are many massage saloons, cafes, etc. within walking distance - Very close to the sea (about 30 meters). Our family usually spend winters in Hua Hin over the past five years. This time we came with the child. We spent a long time choosing convenient house, and booked Casa Rasdara in advance, but It does not meet our expectations. When we came, we were very dissapointed of how much there were dusty, as if there were no long-lived. When we turn on fans, we found that the dust scatters around the room and asked the staff to wipe. The girl stood up on their feet the table and then we were also asked to wipe the table. With such a situation, we met for the first time. Usually, the owners always clean the house before the arrival of the guests. But what surprised us, and even more upset is the fact that after that the hosts did not only tried to correct the situation, but also made us remark that we asked the staff something to wipe. They said that if we do not like the house the way it is, then we can move to another place. The air condition in a small bedroom did not work (it just blew warm air), and in the bathroom there was no hot water. Master, which is caused by the hostess (who is also working gardener) came twice and said that everything is in order. But nothing has being changed. we ourselves have found the fuse in the bathroom and the water began to heat up. Air conditioning did not work, at night the temperature did not fall below 31 degrees. But the biggest problem for us was a large number of mosquitoes!!! Nowhere so much we have not yet met. We have tried everything, but it was in vain. Unfortunately, despite the fact that we asked Dowrai to take it carefully and ask the personnel come at a time when we are at home, the staff has come when it was convenient to them and left the door open. All the time after their visit, twice a week, we were spending all day killing mosquitoes, but it was useless. A few days later we found some huge places with bees near the next door, roof and end at home. Unfortunately, despite all the efforts of the hosts, we can not say that were enjoying staying. And this house does not worth the money we paid. It may be suitable for those who come for the first time and for a short time, then these disadvantages may be not so...

Response from Rasdara & Dowrai:
We thank Alexey and family for choosing to spend their vacation time at our house. However, we also felt that this group of guests isn't a good airbnb guest. They expected services and the condition of a private home on the same level of a 5-stars hotel. The guest had the privilege of visiting the house to check things out before moving in. After their first visit, they gave us a list of what they need prior to moving in. While we really tried to accommodate all our guests to their requests, some of the lists couldn't really be provided. For example, change of stove from gas to electric, beach umbrella, etc. We, however, did change a new TV for them and provide an extra mattress for them for FREE. The biggest issue for them was the mosquitos and to get rid of them from around the house. That was quite an impossible request since Thailand is a tropical country and mosquitos are practically everywhere. We feared that our house would not meet their expectation from the beginning so we offered them the option to cancel the reservation even it was just a few days before the move in date. But they decided to stay anyway. The day they moved in, they asked all the maids to clean pretty much every single corners of the house including the fan, doors and windows before consulting with us first, which was way beyond what the maids were hired for. We got a report that the husband walked around the house with shoes and sand on his feet (besides the house rules which clearly states that guests should take off their shoes before entering the house). Thus, the wife asked to maid to clean up after every steps of the husband. That was a misuse of the staffs and upset them quite very much. We also got a report that the A/C didn't cool up properly because the guests left the doors and windows open, so the hot air flew in. Also the water heater didn't heat up properly because the guest shut the fuse switch in the bathroom themselves. However, the staffs responded very quickly on the bees issue and got rid of the hives within that very same evening. The maids weren't ours and we hired them from a resort within the same property, so they have regular working schedule. They tried their best to adjust the cleaning time according to our guests request, but sometimes it's not possible to ask them to come on a irregular timing every time. The maid reported that they never left the screen doors open, and usually the guests left them open themselves. Thus, usually at a regular airbnb rental house, a FREE maid service twice/week is considered a special service. We felt that we had offered them something extra that wasn't properly appreciated. So while we enjoy offering a unique experience to stay at our classic beach house (a beach house like ours is hard to come by now since most of the prime properties had turned into a tall condominium), we feel that we need to choose our guests more carefully from now on. We love to host people who truly appreciate a unique feeling of staying at an airbnb house, but not guests who're looking for a cheaper stay at a good location whilst still demanding for a service of a 5-stars hotel. Guests like Alexey and Agata gave us an experience to think twice about hosting with airbnb any longer, and we definitely will not want to welcome them again.
