Located inside the plush Rock Garden community of Klaeng, in the Rayong Province of Thailand, this remodeled home is only minutes away from swimming pools, beaches that are nearly empty on weekdays and a large selection of restaurants. If you are looking for a serene atmosphere far from the bar scene and disco's that Thailand is known for, look no further.
Only 5 minutes away by motorbike or car is Laem Mae Phim, a small beach town known historically as a weekend getaway for Thai's looking for a budget escape. Laem Mae Phim beach is 4km long and boasts several restaurants (such as Italian, American, and European cuisine) overlooking the beach. There are also dive shops, souvenir shops, massage and facial amenities, a nearby fishing park, jet ski's, banana boat rides, food vendors, a gym with sauna and motorbike rentals. If you are looking for a casual place to hang out and have a beer, you will find a few of these establishments as well.
The Property: Our home was remodeled in April 2010 with all new air conditioning units, new ceramic floors, a remodeled kitchen with gas stove and new cabinets, new electrical wiring (all grounded) making it safe for your loved ones, water filter system, pump and tank, expanded master bedroom and bathroom, new flat screen TV's and furniture throughout and an added outside patio area and BBQ to enjoy outdoor entertainment.
Rock Garden Beach community consists of over 200 homes, some privately owned and some used as guesthouses for rent through Rock Garden. Being within the grounds of Rock Garden Resort, privately owned homes such as this one, benefit from 24 hour gated security, 2 swimming pools (one with a children's slide), a basketball court and lush manicured grounds with trails for walking or jogging. Just outside the grounds is a new bike path for anyone interested in exercise or site seeing. You can also rent bicycles from Rock Garden at a mere 20 baht/day.
Also, enjoy free wifi, DVD players, Apple TV (if you have iTunes and want to download movies to play on the TV), and xBox with limited games.
Surroundings: Rock Garden Resort is only 3 km to Laem Mae Phim Beach and only 15km east of Ban Phe where you can take a 20 minute ferry to the local island of Koh Samet. There are also nearby waterfalls, caves and a fishing park for your enjoyment. If you like to golf, there are several locations in Rayong about 45 minutes away by car.
Rock Garden does not, however, have on site grocery stores or motorbike rentals. These amenities can be found 3km away at nearby Laem Mae Phim beach.
Please Google™ Laem Mae Phim and Ban Phe for more information on local activities and a map of the area.
*This property is in a gated community with over 200+ houses. Many of these houses are vacant due to non-sale or seasonal owners. This particular property does not currently have live-in neighbors on any side of this address. Across the street is a full-time house owner and more neighbors can be seen within a 1 block radius.
I am pictured here with my brother at a local pier near my Thailand home. I work as a firefighter in America, in a major US city. When I am not working fighting fires, I like to retreat to my vacation home in Thailand to de-stress with my partner, family and friends.
Brie Mathews purchased this house in 2009
Thailand is a wonderful place to live/visit. The people are friendly, the food is fantastic, the culture is interesting and the price is right! This particular area is void of go-go bars and tourism. It's a 'locals' hang-out and the people are incredibly welcoming to visitors. There are plenty of English speaking people around though, so not to worry. This location is a nice hidden gem.
Close proximity to beaches and not too far from the airport. 2 hours to paradise. It is not overwrought with tourists. There are really good people here. It is a safe, pleasant community with lots to do.
We rented the villa Brie Mathews for two weeks in December 2012. We wanted the comfort of three bedrooms, each with its own bathroom to accommodate my husband's family. Even at 6 or 7 people, each in its freedom and independence. We also chose the villa for its style and decoration, illustrations loyal to the site home away: layout, materials, equipment meet the expectations of Western travelers. The house is tastefully furnished and we realize that the owner has an eye for detail. Everything is well thought out. It is a house that lives and has everything you need: equipment and utensils, tools, consumables ... You feel immediately as well as at home. Under the coffee table, magazines and local tourist a record made by the owner provide all necessary information & guidance about the house, the site of Rock Garden, shops and activities around ... The house is tastefully furnished and we realize that the owner has an eye for detail. Everything is well thought out. It is a house that lives & has everything you need: equipment & utensils, tools, consumables ... You feel immediately as well as at home. The house has a home theater with a connector provided to connect its own sources. We have wifi available during the fortnight operation and seamless flow. The three bedrooms are independent and communicate with the living center. This provision is that the room does not have a lot of light. This is the only condition that we can [?] about the villa The patio adjoining the kitchen table is nice and can accommodate up to 8 people. The surroundings of the house are regularly maintained and the whole area. Two neighboring houses are unoccupied. Disconcerting at first, but eventually an additional guarantee of peace. The house is part of a private and secure area, crossed by canals leading to the sea The site is beautiful despite differences between the houses newly renovated (like the one we rented) and other renovation. Two swimming pools are available in the area, perfect for adults & children. Good to know it is easy but essential to hire a means of transport, motorbike or drive to the shops, restaurants and the beach, a few kilometers away. To summarize, a destination and a home where we want to return.
This house is located inside the ROCK GARDEN BEACH Resort. You can Google rockgardenbeach.com to see more pics on the actual grounds.
