Arrived there at around 10.30am to find that her guesthouse was closed and Joy was no where around. Called her on her mobile to be told that she had to leave for a... More

Joy is a very bubbly fun person and her guest house is ideal whether you are a solo traveller,a bunch of friends or a family. I think it is fair to say that the magic ingredient in staying here is the lady herself. She just loves to help and the word "no" is not really in her vocabulary. The guest... More

Good value for money. Just 5 minutes walks to Karon beaches and Karon main streets. Although had few bars and pubs at below or nearby, but is not noisy at night time. So, no need worry about can't get into sleep during sleep. Joy was so so friendly,helpful and the most kindest. Enjoyed alot chatting with her.

Fantastic, we were in this Guesthouse for a mouth, and was fantastic. Joy is very nice and available for every request. The rooms are perfect, clean and with wi-fi connection. From 3 minutes to the beach and between bar restaurants and shop it's a perfect place to stay. I suggest this guesthouse because you seem to be at home!!!

6 of us stayed at Joy's guesthouse in early Feb and would definitely go back again. Joy is such a pleasure to be around and will bend over backwards to make sure your trip is comfortable and enjoyable. We were treated to a tour of Phuket and an on-the-job lesson of cooking Thai food! Couldn't ask for more, highly reccomended

“If you are a light sleeper get a room at the back because the street can be noisy till quite late. Book early as she has only a few rooms and they are always in demand. No such thing as a quick chat with joy because she likes to talk. She plays a mean game of pool so watch out.”
