Klaeng House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 3 full baths, sleeps 6 adults

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.

About Brie Mathews

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

Why Brie Mathews chose Klaeng

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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 ...

Une belle villa confortable et tout équipée

  • 5 of 5
Nous avons loué la villa de Brie Mathews pour deux semaines en décembre 2012.
Nous recherchions le confort de trois chambres, chacune disposant de sa salle de bain pour accueillir ma belle-famille. Même à 6 ou 7 personnes, chacun à son espace de liberté et son indépendance.

Nous avons également choisi la villa pour son style et sa décoration, fidèles aux illustrations du site home away : l’aménagement, les matériaux, les équipements répondent aux attentes de voyageurs occidentaux.

La maison est aménagée avec goût et l’on se rend compte que le propriétaire a le souci du détail. Tout y est bien pensé.

C’est une maison qui vit et qui offre tout ce dont on a besoin : équipements et ustensiles de cuisine, outils, consommables divers…
On se sent immédiatement aussi bien que chez soi.

Sous la table du salon, des revues touristiques locales et un dossier constitué par le propriétaire donnent tous les renseignements et indications nécessaires à propos de la maison, du site de Rock Garden, des commerces et des activités aux alentours…

La maison dispose d’une Home Cinema avec une connectique fournie pour brancher ses propres sources.

Le wifi nous aura offert pendant ces quinze jours un fonctionnement et un débit sans faille.

Les trois chambres sont indépendantes et communiquent avec le séjour, au centre. Cette disposition fait que cette pièce ne dispose pas de beaucoup de luminosité. C’est la seule réserve que nous pouvons faire au sujet de la villa exemplaire par ailleurs.
Le patio attenant à la cuisine est agréable et sa table permet d’accueillir jusqu’à huit personnes.

Les abords de la maison sont régulièrement entretenus ainsi que l’ensemble du domaine.
Les deux maisons voisines sont inoccupées. Déconcertant au premier abord mais finalement un gage supplémentaire de tranquillité.
La maison fait partie d’un domaine privé et sécurisé, parcouru par des canaux débouchant sur la mer. Le site est splendide malgré des disparités entre les maisons fraîchement rénovées (comme celle que nous avons louée) et d’autres à rénover.

Deux piscines sont accessibles au sein du domaine, parfaites pour les adultes et les enfants.

Bon à savoir : il est facile mais indispensable de louer un moyen de locomotion, mobylette ou voiture pour rejoindre les commerces, restaurants et la plage, distants de quelques kilomètres.

Pour résumer, une destination et une maison où l'on a envie de revenir.

Very comfortable stay with family

  • 5 of 5
We spent three weeks in this house and loved every minute of it. Everything you can ask for in order to spend a lovely time away from it all was provided as the house is fully furnished, as in the description and even more.
As the house has just been renovated, it was incredibly clean and had a brand-new feel to it.
The house is set in a resort about 5 min from Laem Mae Phim beach, which makes for a very quiet setting, and most houses in the resort were unoccupied at the time of our stay, so we felt like the whole resort was ours. If you are looking for some action however, you may want to choose another location.
We came with our four children aged 10-15 and they enjoyed the pools and the resort beach, as well as the entertainment facilities in the house.
Laem Mae Phim beach and its many restaurants are easily accessible by car or motorbike.
The owner, Brie, was diligent in making sure all our needs were fulfilled in an incredibly attentionate fashion. Barry, who looks after the property, will help you with local needs.
If you're looking for a calm and relaxing place to spend a few weeks to enjoy the sun in a very comfortable location, I would definitely recommend this house.

Owner's Response: As my first renter, Michel and his family were ideal. I am so very pleased to have had such wonderful renters. This is exactly how I hoped HomeAway.com would work. Thanks again Michel for all of your insightful feedback. Please come back again!!

As Michel had mentioned, the Laem Mae Phim area is not the location for night-time entertainment of the disco club type. There is however, plenty to do and see. Fishing, snorkeling, diving, boat trips, night cruises, shopping, great restaurants and local entertainment are among the activities you will find here. This area definitely provides a relaxing atmosphere, void of the tourist trap feel yet for those more adventurous, plenty of outdoor activities abound.

Please feel free to email me with any questions!

Notes:
Renters must provide their own transportation to Rock Garden. Buses leave from Suvarnabhumi Airport to Klaeng which is 15 minutes by car to Rock Garden or buses go to Rayong and transfer to Laem Mae Phim which is 5 minute by car to Rock Garden. Renting a car at the airport is highly recommended, especially in the wet months or a taxi can be taken to Rock Garden for about 3000 baht or $100 USD. It is 2 hours to Rock Garden from Bangkok Int'l Airport. Buying bottled water is recommended. There is a hot/cold water dispenser with 3 large bottles. Bottles will be filled prior to arival but refills are up to the renters to handle. Free Wi-Fi *Utilities must be paid in cash directly to Rental Managers Mayson and Ake prior to your departure based on meter reading. This ensures that each renter is responsible for use of air conditioning units and electricty for lights, etc. The more wasteful you are...the more you pay. **Housekeeping fee is for the clean-up after your departure.
