It is great to stay in the old town, and experience the authentic Thai life, rather than the tourist infested places you often get stuck in. With a handful of shops and restaurants it has everything you need, and next door you can hire a scooter for 200 baht to explore the island. The house itself is extremely comfortable. The upstairs main bedroom doesn't have air con, but there is a room downstairs that you can lock yourselves into and sleep there if you get to hot. I highly recommend Fresh restaurant down the road if you end up staying there, the menu is huge and every dish we had was incredible, the staff are also extremely nice (one waiter even asking for a photo with us on our last meal as we had eaten there so many times, and when we gave him a tip he returned with gifts from his souvenir shop). All the people in the old town are extremely nice, and it was a very memorable 5 days.
