Baan Moon is originally a fisherman's house. Located on the Klong Prao estuary, a stone's throw from Klong Prao beach on the west coast of the island.

It was recently renovated into a full-fledged wooden villa that retains the unique charm of a traditional Thai home while offering modern comforts.

Enjoy a more authentic stay on Koh Chang in an area most visitors don't get to experience.

The space


-> The 120m² villa is fully equipped and boasts a large open living space and kitchen, two large master bedrooms with outstanding views, one smaller room and two bathrooms, perfect for vacationers from 1 to 6/7 persons.

-> The 180 degrees panoramic terrace offers unparalleled views onto the jungle-covered mountains, the mangrove, a large coconut grove and the beach & sea (and of course daily sunset sights!). Small fishing boats and tourists on their kayaks sail past as you relax in one of the hammocks, chill out on the wooden deck or sunbathe on the outer deck.

-> The house is centrally located on the west coast of the island, half way to the north and south, just minutes away from 2 villages offering all daily conveniences (supermarket, bakery, café, restaurants, massage, pharmacy, scooter rental, etc) and from all attractions including Koh Chang's longest beach, elephant /jungle trekking, sailing, kayak, tennis, diving clubs, cooking lessons & more! 10 min to the International Clinic.

-> We have lived on Koh Chang since 2003. Our guesthouse 'Baan Rim Nam' is just 200 metres away on the same river estuary. So we will be happy to recommend all the good places and to be of assistance at any time.

-> IDEAL FOR: Single persons, couples and families. Lagoon-side location perfect for people looking for peace and quiet. Sea lovers, fishermen, yogis, dreamers & peace-seekers.

Don't worry about mosquitoes - there aren't any as Baan Moon is near the mouth of the estuary, the water outside is sea water not freshwater.

A magical place. We loved being on the estuary and access to the kayak. Thanks for everything.

Perfect location, fabulous house! The kids loved the kanoe, we the quietness of the river. Ian gave us a very warm welcome (including a "survival package" with fresh fruits). We appreciated that a lot.

Baan Moon is a magical and quiet place to experience Koh Chang but still close to town centres. We enjoyed a week at Ian's amazing house and he was super helpful in helping us to arrange transport and a hire car whilst on the island. Perfect house right on the river to watch nature pass by.

We were not sure which of the islands to visit during our trip in Thailand, so we let the best Airbnb accommodation determine our destiny. After a couple pictures and the great reviews, we chose for Ian's place. Both Koh Chiang and Ian's place are absolutely wonderful, the peace and serenity of this house are amazing. We loved every second of our stay and hope to have an opportunity to re-visit it again in the future. It's one of those places where you just sit down and enjoy the world passing by in front of your veranda.

Baan Moon is a great place to stay and watch the world go by in canoe and boat! Very quite, comfortable and a wonderful traditional house. Ian made us feel very welcome and had drinks, coffee, bread etc available so we didn't have to run off to the supermarket straight away. Really recommend for a few days or a week relaxing. Close to everything, walking distance or canoe distance to good restaurants and bars. Thanks Ian for making our time in Koh Chang very relaxing.

We spent 8 days in Ians wonderful house Baan Moon. We were there with our 5 kids and niece, and we could fit just fine. Two large and airconditioned bedrooms and one small bedroom with a fan. The kids really enjoyed swimming in the lagoon and sailing out in the canoe. There are som wonderful child friendly beaches just around the corner - a short paddle or swim away. We had one of our highlights on our trip here on Baan Moon :) Ian is a very helpful host and he answered us very quickly and helped us arrange transport from Cambodia and back to Bangkok. Best recommendations from us - we would love to come back!
