About this listing
This two bedroom cottage is on a private stretch of beach front coconut plantation on Chumporn Bay. A few small islands dot the view. On a clear day Ko Tao can be seen on the horizon. Nearby caretakers can provide cleaning and meals on request. Off the tourist track
This is a fantastic, secluded getaway, off the tourist track. The cottage is small but light and airy with a front balcony.
There is one aircon in the master bedroom and there are ceiling and standing fans and plenty of breezes.
There are no internal doors. Just curtains.
The beach is just in front of your door. It changes with the seasons: sometimes the beach is littered with debris from storms- great for beach combing. Other times it's white sand or pebbly. Often we find phosphorescence when swimming in the water at night.
The plantation has old coconut and palm oil trees. Fresh coconut can be had every day. And usually plenty of papaya.
The beach is beautiful but the bay is shallow. Not the best swimming beach. Perfect to laze in the water .
You need your own car to access the property. The drive down to the property is steep but standard cars can manage easily. Just mind the edge of the road. It can be sharp so come at it tight f r om the left.
The whole cottage is yours and all of the property is free for you to roam around .
There is another cottage on the property where our Thai caretakers live. It's within eyesight, for security purposes, but otherwise this is an isolated spot.
A beach for beach combing (lots of sea glass), long walks on the quiet roads or along the beach. Bring bikes for some great, quiet cycling on the back streets through rubber plantations.
There are friendly dogs on the property. They are good for security. We never lock up.
