Hello. We stayed at Sandy House for 2 weeks in Novermber of 2014 as a couple for our holidays. We really enjoyed our stay and here's why. The hotel is located in very silent location just near the Rawai beach. Rooms are very comfortable and are being cleaned every day. The staff is just something - we really enjoyed how friendly and responsive the staff was, especially the owners. The awesome thing is that Sandy House has bicycles for free, so if you don't wanna ride a motorbike - that's a huge thing. The hotel, however, can rent you a motorbike for a very fair price, and if you are not sure if you are an ok driver - you can try before you rent with out any deposit.
There are 3 beaches near the hotel's location - Nai Harn, Ya Nui and Ao Sane. I suggest visit them all, but personally we liked Nai Harn the most.It's like 5-7 minutes away from the hotel on motorbike.
The location itself is very nice and has alot of great restaurants around with various cousines. Just a tip - if you like seafood, fish market is some 10 minutes walk from the hotel, you can get fresh seafood and restaurants just opposite to traders will cook it for you for a small price. That's it. A very nice hotel with a lovely staff - totally recommended.More
