About the Property

Sea View- 2 bedrooms, sleeps 4, furnished house, full kitchen, balconies

Longtail Beach House is located above a turquoise bay with excellent views, one minute walk to the beach, minutes to shopping, restaurants, and activities. The house is private but operated by a resort staff that can help with your holiday needs. This unique house is designed with traditional rustic Thai materials and blended with modern conveniences needed to make your stay comfortable. We want you to feel like you are staying on a tropical island in Thailand and not a typical, concrete modern bungalow found everywhere else in the world.

The open floor plan extends onto the large balconies to offer you a natural outdoor feeling while in the comforts of home. Enjoy a tropical breeze swinging in the hammocks, or reading on the outdoor lounge. Listen to the jungle music & soothe your mind, gazing into the palm lined mountains. Small boats sail the tranquil blue bay. A short minute stroll down the driveway leads you to a white sand beach perfect for swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, jogging or sun tanning. A variety of activities are offered including trekking, island tours, and boat, diving, fishing and Marine Park trips. The two sleeping rooms have air-conditioning. For bookings made after March 15, 2017 the air-conditioning is included in the price.

Comforts of Home: Once you’re there, it’s hard to leave the comforts of your tropical, sea view home. But if you want more adventure than the typical relaxing beach activities, you can take to the mountains, or explore the island by boat or private trucks.

What else to do in the area: The local village is a tiny tourist town with amenities including ATM’s, 711, resorts, shops, kiosks, nursing clinics, travel agents, motorbike rental, temple, restaurants, nightlife and guests from all over the world. The Island is covered in tropical jungle with small roads to navigate across. Island tours include elephant trekking, temple viewing, beach exploring, snake shows, 'wipe out' water course and zip-line canopy adventures. Ko PhaNgan is famed for its “Full Moon & Half Moon” parties which are hosted on the other side of the island.

Where is ko Phangan Island?: Ko PhaNgan is one of three tropical islands located in the gulf of Thailand. It is assessable by boats that leave Ko Samui Island several times a day or from the mainland embarking from Suratthani city and DonSak pier. Both Ko Samui and Suratthani have airports and connecting flights to/from Bangkok city.

Thong Nai Pan Beaches have two crescent bays lined with beach bungalows and 5 Star resorts. The bigger of the two bays is called Thong Nai Pan-Yai (“Yai” means big) and the house is tucked in the hill at the end of Yai beach. This area is considered a remote part of the island which requires transport over the mountains. *Recent road construction has completed a concrete road from the pier to the house, which has made transport faster and more comfortable. Along with the convenience, comes more travelers using the road. Expect increased street traffic near the house.

Owner info

About the owner: Brian and Brenda are from Portland Oregon, USA and are semi-retired with 3 children and 7 grandchildren whom they love to make meaningful memories with. Brian and Brenda began traveling to Thailand and Thongnaipan in 1999 and fell in love with the people and TNP beach. With the help of longtime Thai friends, their dream came true to build a small vacation home that could be shared with family and friends. Each year Brian and Brenda return to spend 3-4 months blending their American and Thai families on the beach.

Why the Owner Chose Ban Tai, Ko Pha-ngan District, Surat Thani, Thailand:
After traveling and visiting oceans worldwide, they always compared Thongnaipan to other beaches but no other had soft or white enough sand, blue or warm enough water, remote but convenient enough access and happier or kinder people. They have watched the village family grow, and hold dear the past while embracing the changes upon this developing area. The house is located at the entrance of a good friends resort so it has access to resort offerings like restaurant, reception, pool, taxi and laundry service. It's a perfect holiday house location with the beach just one minute away.
