29/3 Moo 4 Klong Prao
Recommended by Lonely Planet, Rough Guide & Tripadvisor, this renovated fisherman's house situated on the mangrove clad shoreline of the Klong Prao river estuary, 150 metres from Klong Prao Beach on the west coast of Koh Chang. The travel guides seem to like Baan Rim Nam. . . "Live like a canal fisherman, with wi-fi and air-con. Perched on a wooden pier on Khlong Phrao, and backed by a mangrove, this renovated wooden fisherman's home affords the opportunity to experience a side of Ko Chang most visitors never see . . . . The guesthouse is often full so reservations are highly recommended." Lonely Planet Online Guide. Review by Joe Cummings."Baan Rim Nam: A charming, idiosyncratic, converted fishing family's house, built on stilts over the klong at the end of a walkway through the mangroves. Run by a British-Thai couple, it has just three comfortable, stylishly-furnished air-con rooms with good bathrooms, plus a deck area for lounging but no restaurant. You can borrow kayaks and it's a couple of minutes walk to the beach and Barracuda Restaurant." The Rough Guide to Thailand 2007, page 495"This out-of-the-way guesthouse is set in one of the most gorgeous spots on the island." www.Travelfish.orgBaan Rim Nam (which means "House on the water") is run by a Thai/English couple and their golden retriever dog. There are five air-conditioned en-suite rooms at Baan Rim Nam. The rooms are spacious and bright and have been decorated with neutral colours and bamboo furniture. There is one double bed in each room. Each bathroom has a hot shower, sink and western style toilet. Bath towels and toiletries are provided. There is 24 hour electricity and water supply. As Baan Rim Nam is only a small place we don\'t have a restaurant. However, there are cheap places to eat on the beach nearby and three restaurants on the river - they\'ll send a boat to pick you up at nightBecause we are located in Klong Prao in the centre of the west coast of the island, getting around is relatively easy. Motorbikes can be hired nearby and there is a regular shared taxi service operating on the main road - approx 15 minutes walk away. We are located away from the crowds - there are no bars or huts within earshot, only local families who earn a living fishing or running boat services. However, there are a couple of good beach bars a few minutes walk away which are great places for grabbing a cold beer whilst watching the sun go down.
