This Thai PAN YAH style house is on a lotus pond in 34 Rai plot of land used to be a Durian and Rambutan orchard but now replaced by 15 years old planted forest of hundreds of valuable hard woods such as Yang Na ( Dipterocarpus alatus), teak, rose wood and Eaglewood. The only forest amidst Durian orchards, this planted forest becomes a sanctuary of small wild lives such as chicken, birds and squirrels, as well as wild mushrooms. At a time of year, March – May, the place becomes additionally beautiful when Yang Na bear fruits and their winged seeds fly in winds to germinate far away. The house has 3 bed rooms with 2 singles and a queen size bed with 2 bathrooms with hot shower. The first floor houses a dining/living room, a kitchen, a bathroom and a porch where you can enjoy a company of 4-7 in tropical forest atmosphere.
The second house, a knock-down pine wood, is with a queen size bed, pantry, bathroom and balcony. It takes two guests and offers an exclusive privacy. It is 30 meter away from the main house, connected via a styled wood bridge. Between the two houses are long gong tree, Mafai tree and mangosteen tree that guests may pick when in season.
