Submerse yourself into the simplicity that is Thai life and live amongst the locals in the quaint little Sea Gypsy Village.
This voyage is yours to plan by yourself, discover the real local Thai culture and enjoy the best experience without having to pay hefty tour agency fees.
Our newly built Chill out house in the village of Laem pho is a cosy and comfortable alternative to a stuffy hotel room. This entirely self-catering holiday home requires its occupants to be totally self-sufficient.
Chill out village is located in “Ban Laem pho”, a sea gypsy village surrounded by nature, nestled in a peaceful coastal area just a short distance from the famous Shell Fossil Beach. The location is short 20 minute drive away from Krabi town and 10 minute drive to the busy tourist destination of Ao nang beach. It is extremely easy to catch a long tail boat over to Railay or Tonsai from Ao nammao pier or you can walk 20/25 minutes to the main road and catch a public bus to Krabi or Ao nang. We have push bicycles available for rent for a small fee, to get around the village and surrounding area.
This beautiful modern house can sleep up to 4 people but you are also in a beautiful spot for a quiet romantic break for 2. The well thought out living space offers a bright and airy 1 bedroom with king size bed complete with air con. In the living room there is a sofa bed and we can provide a mattress for the 4th person. Built with western amenities the bathroom has a powerful hot shower and western style toilet. There is also a kitchenette with electric cooker and fridge.
The properties boast a large outside terrace which overlooks the peaceful and serene laem pho area and you can enjoy the calmness of this South Thailand hidden gem.

Interaction with guests
I will meet you when you check in and give you the details you need. I can help with organising the scooter or rent a car. You can reach me anytime via message or telephone. We are lucky enough to have a lovely thai couple living close to the houses and they are happy to help with anything. Please understand English is not their first language but will still do all they can to help.
Other things to note
The house is situated amongst nature; you will not have the noise of traffic or loud music from bars and clubs. Instead you will hear the frogs, crickets and geckos. In the low season during the wet weather the frog chorus can be quite loud. If you have any fear from seeing any of these animals then perhaps an inner city hotel would be best. But just remember the Geckos are great guests for keeping the mosquitoes at bay!! Like with any humid country we do have mosquitoes, also we are not far from the Krabi River. Please bring mosquito spray and you can even buy mosquito coils for on the terrace.
