Hallo Wongchan !
Vi hadde en flott ferie når vi bodde i leiligheten din i Cha-am.
Leiligheten var fint for oss to , og kan fint leies ut for 4 personer.
Servicen fra resepsjonen var utmerket. Hvis man vil ha en stille og rolig
ferie i Thailand...så er leiligheten utmerket.Du sendte meg en melding opp
at du hadde oppgradert kjøkkenet...det er sikkert greit, selvom vi var
veldig fornøyd med sånn det var. Restauranten/butikken nedenfor skaffet oss
alt vi trengte av mat og andre ting. Alt var veldig bra. Ja....det kan
hende vi kontakter deg igjen...det er et flott sted å feriere, både for
familieferie og de som vil oppsøke Thailand på egenhånd

Hello Wongchan

Everything is fine, working and as expected. Having breakfast on the balcony in light breeze, 27 C and sunny (no snow… ha..ha..). Cannot be better. Have a nice day, Roy

This is a short review of living in apartment 408 at Baan Ruen Rom and in the area of Tambon for the high season of 2012-2013.

I spent 90 days at Baan Ruen Rom last winter, arriving mid-December. I had a wonderful time in a comfortable apartment in the quiet area of Tambone just outside Cha-Am Beach. I very much enjoyed retiring to the quiet area after a day at the beach or a night in town avoiding the partying and noise usually associated with a vacation resort. The facilities made it confortable to stay in the area rather than go to the Cha-Am Beach every day. A large pool that was cleaned every morning with steps down to access several kilometers of sandy beach. There are several restaurants and small stores within walking distance. The stores provide the necessities for preparing breakfast and lunch but for preparing dinner a trip to the fresh market is a must. Transport can be hired from just outside the gate. I also found the location to be perfect for exploring the area around Cha-Am by bicycle with a number of attractions within reasonable distances.

Baan Ruen Rom is located about 3 km. north of Cha-Am Beach by taking the road through the fishing harbor or about 5 km. by taking the main access road.

I arrived to find the apartment ready to move into in a condition just as explained by the owner. It was clean and equipped to expectations. Plenty of bed sheets, towels, and kitchen utensils adequate for light meals and even a full course dinner.

The location on the 4th floor facing northeasterly was perfect for enjoying the large balcony throughout the day. The sun could be observed rising in the morning from the balcony but as the temperature raised during the day the balcony and the panorama windows would be in the shade for a perfect temperature. I spent more time on the balcony than inside the apartment during my stay. I never used the A/C except sometimes to cool the rooms at night before going to bed.

24 hour security left the yard safe and parking for bikes and motorcycles was under cover (not that it mattered; we had 3 half days of rain during 3 months). The staff as per individual agreement handled cleaning and laundry.

Hello Wongchan,

I meant to message you earlier when we first arrived but the kids saw the beach from the balcony and were so excited that it was so close by that we had to take them there immediately. The apartment is perfect. No issues with the internet.

Thank you for letting us stay here.

The cartoon dvds are a life saver in keeping the youngest entertained.... thanks again.



This condo is ideally located by the beach. The view from the balcony is great and very relaxing. Just walk downstairs and the beach is just below. The owner, Wongchan, is very helpful and quickly answers any message you leave her within hours. Check in was very easy and the staff at the condo was very helpful. Condo is clean and has all the amenities needed. As a business traveler who needed a reliable internet connection, there were no issues and connection speed was very good.

The beach is very quite and away from the other tourist areas so very ideal if you just want to relax. Also, this area is very suitable for young children. You will need a car or a motorbike to get around but there is a small mom & pop business near by (next to the restaurant) that will rent you a vehicle at a very affordable price.

I can't say enough good things about this condo and the owner. I will be back next year.

Hello Wongchan,

I really enjoy 2 nights stay at your place. It's really worth my money and my holidays. I am very much enjoy staying here cause it feel like home. This place is very clean, neat and well equipped. You can relax and feel free here. Just only a step from the balcony and you will let your worry away by the sea view in front of you. My husband and my daughter both love this place and we are very lucky to find such a place here.

There are 2 air-conditioned bedrooms which can accommodate up to 4-5 persons and also have 2 restrooms. Kitchen sink have the hot and cold water. It's very comfortable. There is a true cable network and a DVD player. If you are a movie lovers this will suites you. In the afternoon, you can lay down lazy at the swimming pool or get excited by the wave from the sea beach in just only 10 meters away.

As a person who was born in Thailand. I feel that I'm lucky to find a "second home" here and I can guarantee you that you'll find a true happiness and a real holiday here in this place and in Cha-am!!

Hej Wongchan.

Vi havde 4 dejlige uger i din lejlighed i Cha-am, skønt område at gå ture i,lidt langt fra byen, vi lejede en scooter i alle 4 uger så kunne man hurtig kommefremog vi havde ingen problemer med trafikken, 100 meter fra lejligheden ligger den dejligste restaurant de laver det bedste Thai mad. lejligheden passer fint til 4 personer og der er hvad man skal bruge, vi lavede ikke selv mad men spiste ude 

Med venlig hilsen

I have rented many places on Airbnb but this was one of the best experiences. From the balcony you can see and hear the waves from the Gulf of Thailand crash onto the peaceful beach. Coconut trees and a beautiful garden surround a great pool. The location is perfect for a peaceful holiday. 200 metres along the beach are a few quiet restaurants which offer wonderful seafood dishes. The apartment is comfortabl, with a dvd player, some cable tv and well furnished. The balcony has room for a few people to relax and enjoy the spectacular view. The staff at the condo are very friendly and will clean the apartment for just 200 baht. there is a good, cheap laundry service available. The gym is great with new running equipment and weights. The surrounding area is picturesque where cows wander amongst coconut trees. Transport is needed here to get the few kms into town but there is a handy shop nearby with basic supplies. Wongchan was a gracious host and was always on hand with answers to any questions that we had and gave us great tips on which local attractions to see. Overall a great experience
