About this listing
Have you ever dreamed of falling asleep to the meditative sound of the waves? Waking up to the golden rays of the sunrise? MuChu House on the Sea will offer you this unique experience. Join us and live real local life on this beautiful island.
MuChu is a real home away from home. Our little guesthouse features 3 cozy rooms built on stilts on the sea in a quiet, local area of Koh Lanta Old Town. The rooms have funny (but meaningful) names: Chuchu, Mumu and Zulu. All share an outdoor kitchen and a large relaxing deck on the water with gorgeous sea view where you can swing on your hammock or do some yoga. Wifi can be accessed from all the rooms and the shared areas. If you are looking for a different, unique, local experience, MuChu is the place!
Zulu is the smallest and cheapest room, mainly because it doesn't have the sea view straight from the bed like the other two rooms and it is located under Mumu, which is the room above. But despite the disadvantages, Zulu is a really cute and cozy little room, and well-priced too of course. It is made of wood and bamboo in real fisherman style and has a queen-size bed, fan, mosquito net, a convenient bathroom with cold shower, and a little private deck with hammock where you can swing to the sounds of the waves in high tide. Zulu does not have any windows but three big doors with a fisherman style kind of lock that give the room an open feeling and lots of light and air.
All guests have access to an outdoor kitchen with fridge and gas stove. You might want to practice your newly-acquired Thai cooking skills or just take a break from Thai food and cook something from back home. Next door to your house you can buy the freshest fish, squid and shrimp straight from the fisherman or you can indulge in local markets where you explore local fruit, veggies, spices, curries and other familiar and totally new ingredients.
In the kitchen area there is a table where you can sit down and enjoy your food, but you are also welcome to have your meal on the beautiful deck.
You share the kitchen and the deck with guests in the two other rooms. Therefore we require all guests to keep the kitchen and the deck tidy, to clean up after cooking, and to be considerate of each other and the neighbours.
Interaction with guests
We are happy to be there for our guests and want to make sure you have a pleasant stay.
We will always meet you at your check-in and give you information about the accommodation, the surrounding and the island.
After your check-in we are at your service online to answer any questions you might have and help you arrange anything, such as motorbike rental, transportation to and from the airport, a 4-island trip or a diving course. You can also try Mon's local-style private cooking classes, where you learn to cook authentic Thai food in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. More info about that on our web page Cooking with Mon.
If there is anything you need, please let us know, we might be able to help!
As mentioned before, guests are expected to leave the common areas clean and tidy. In addition, guests should be aware that we live in a very local area. Therefore we should respect the Thai culture and the different religions. However, the neighbours are already familiar with our Western culture and they are generally very easy-going. You will see that at night, after 10 pm, our neighborhood is very quiet. It is recommended to keep it that way.

Nice to meet you! We are Mon and Maayan. We are a couple, Mon is Thai, and Maayan is Dutch/Israeli. We live a quiet life with our beautiful little girl Mili. We have been together since 2011 and have actually even met each other on Koh Lanta. We run a little guesthouse named Muchu House on the Sea and Wooda, a beautiful house on the water where we used to live, both on Airbnb.
Since our daughter's arrival to our familiy we moved away from Old Town, so we see our guests less in person. We try to always be there for our guests' check-in and otherwise we are always available online to answer any questions and help our guests with all kinds of things like trips, transportation and even help on organising birthdays or wedding proposals(!)
Mon is an excellent chef/teacher and is offering private, local-style cooking classes for people who want to learn how to cook real Thai food.
What we love the most is cooking & eating, spending time at home with our little girl, traveling and just hanging out with friends.
