Interaction with guests
Jan will meet you and give you the keys. She will be around to answer your questions and make sure you are happy. There is a book in the villa to tell you all about where to go, the restaurants, diving, trips, restaurants, massage spas and more. Many bars have 'happy hour' when drinks are 2 for 1.The locals are very friendly and most speak a little bit of English. Trips around the island are fun like going to the Lighthouse, the waterfall, old Town and the night market in Saladan but best of all is Kantiang Bay.

About the neighbourhood
The villa is set in the National Park. You can walk to the waterfall, the lighthouse, tiger cave and of course the beautiful white sandy beaches. There are so many different restaurants and bars all in walking distance and they are very good value. One bar has the important sporting events showing, another good music and fire dancers, a third just wonderful drinks and scenery. The elephants are up by the waterfall and all the sandy white beaches have fun beach bars and restaurants. The diving is excellent and snorkelling too and the Four Islands Boat trip is a must, you even can swim into a dark smugglers cave and come out onto a secret beach. The Old Town is pretty and the clothes shops good. this is where the sea gypsy's live.
Getting around
cars, scooters, tuk tuks and bikes and taxis.
