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.

The space

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.

Guest access

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!

House Rules
Check in is anytime after 2PM

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.

We had an amazing stay at the Muchu house! Originally booked it for 3 nights but decided to extend our stay a week because we loved it so much. The room is super cozy and Maayan and Mon we're super helpful with anything we may have needed during our stay. If your looking for a true local experience, then this is the place. We can't wait to go back to the Muchu house!

Absolutely lovely place. I was looking for someplace quiet and relaxing and I definitely found it. Mon and Maayan were very accommodating and the place was perfect. I fell asleep to the waves at my door every night. A great place to stay!!! Thank you again!

A great place to relax and unwind in a peaceful and majestic setting. The old town is 5 minute walk with a choice of amazing restaurants and in my opinion the best shopping I have seen in Thailand, particularly ladies clothes. The best beaches are on the other side of island but with a moped about 15 minutes and because the island is less touristy than others roads free and safe. The hosts Myan and Mon live nearby and are available for advice, trips and transport and genuinely could not be nicer. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in their home.

If you are looking for a local, relax atmosphere in koh Lanta, it is the place to be ! The facilities are very basics but we really enjoyed cooking our meals and having naps on the terrace ! You can easily discover the island if you rent a moto and Mon and Maayan are here to answer all your questions. Couldn't enjoy more our stay !

If you want to travel one of the Thai islands and get an idea of what the real Thailand feels like, if you want to feel secluded while still having the right people close to you to help you get around, then come and stay at Muchu house! The place is so peaceful and everything what you'd expect it to be. Mon & Mayaam are the most helpful people, ask them about anything you want to do on the island and around. Or if you don't feel like doing anything - for this also, you will find that the place is perfect :) - Mon & Mayaam are fun people to hang out with, so easygoing. If you want to have a taste of Thai cooking, you should definitely show Mon how to do so in his Cooking With Mon cooking class :) It's a great concept and you'll definitely meet some like-minded people. My 4 days on the island have been the most memorable part of my travels in Thailand.

Great spot for travelers who want to get away from the loud noise and stay in a more local community. Shout out to Mon for the great cooking class, would definitely recommend it! Mon taught us a lot and made it so much fun. Also a lot of great food in old town and this side of the island. (Go to Sunee's place, it was delicious.) One heads up, be mindful you are living in a less developed home not a 5 star resort, so there will be some bugs. But all in all I would totally recommend this place and would love to stay again if I am back in Koh lanta. Mayaan was extremely helpful and even helped us arrange a bus to our next destination. Great food, great people and great times. Thanks muchu house!!!

We loved our stay in the Zulu room! We stayed for 5 nights and didn't want to leave! The room is beautiful and all the doors open up to see the beautiful view and a cool breeze! Maayan was so helpful with us, and I spoke to her literally everyday (because we wanted to) she gave us loads of things to do and places to visit. She also helped us with maps and motorbikes. It was such a good stay, and we will definitely come back if we come back to Lanta. Thanks so much x

Mon And Maayan User ProfileMon And Maayan is a superhost.

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.
