About the Homestay
The home is a typical Thai town house 20 minutes from Central Bangkok. There are 2 connected bedrooms, both with queen beds and air conditioned and a private bathroom is allocated for guests.
40 metres from the door are 24/7 taxis and a mini bus service every 5 minutes to the nearest sky train station, Banjaak, and the area has local restaurants and (safe) street food stalls available all day.
Your hosts are Tony (Aussie) and Bor (Thai), an empty nest couple who love having guests.
We have travelled throughout Asia in general and extensively in Thailand and our collective knowledge of customs, tourist / shopping areas and Bangkok in general allows us to guide our guests with advice throughout their stay.
To further enhance the experience we also provide an airport meet and greet and a free orientation day to several tourist areas using multiple means of public transport so our guests feel more comfortable moving about the city on their own. As an extra service we also teach some basic Thai phrases to help communication.
Jn short we are a couple who enjoy the company of diverse people and we love to help make a guests stay both enjoyable and memorable.

About the Area
We are in a quiet soi (side street) in a predominately Thai area which includes restaurants, street food and mini marts.
40 metres from the door there is a steady stream of 24/7 taxis and a mini bus service to nearest sky train station, Banjaak, every 5 minutes. The trip to Central Bangkok takes about 15-20 minutes, so you have the best of both worlds, an opportunity to experience the real Thai experience but within easy reach of the central tourist and shopping areas.

Tony was helpful in every aspect with guiding info about Bangkok.Free water, airco in room. Good homestay in Bangkok. Cheers!
It was the best start for us in Thailand. Tony picked us up at the airport as promised. He showed us arround and answerd all our questions about thai food, language, habits and so on. We enjoyed spending time with Tony after the day tours he provided us. It's definitely worth staying at his place if you want to chat a bit, stay NOT at Kaosan Rd, and learn a lot about culture!
He traveled through most of Thailand so he is the one to give good tipps for sights or things to do in Bangkok and elsewhere in Thailand.
Thank you so much Tony for hosting and supporting us!
Staying with Tony was the epitome of the homestay experience. He was a helpful, knowledgable, and patient host with a great sense of humour. He picked me up from the airport, helped me get on my feet and taught me everything I needed to know to navigate life in Bangkok. The Tony Tour was a highlight of my stay, which included an unforgettable night in Patpong and shopping at MBK and the Rod Fai night market. Do not hesitate to book a stay with Tony, you won't regret it.
Tout était parfait. Tony est très très accueillant et serviable. Il nous a beaucoup aidé dès le premier jour en nous montrant les marchés et les moyens de transports. Le fait qu’il vienne nous chercher à l’aeroport est un vrai plus. Merci encore Tony pour tout.
La maison est simple et fonctionnelle. Parfaite pour quelques nuits.
If you're looking for a good homestay look no further, Tony's guesthouse is the very best. As a firstime solo traveller (28 yr old) it was a daunting idea to just "wing it" when arriving at the Bangkok airport. Tony came and picked me up, made me settle right it. He goes above and beyond to make sure you are all good and well. He took me to see the Bangkok nightlife (never going to forget this night in my life) and the day after provided an amazing tour of several great sights not known to most tourists, this while explaining the neccecities to get around. We also just chilled and watched movies. I could not have wished for a better start of my journey. Tony I am forever grateful for your time and hospitality! I might bend my itinerary to visit once more.
Tony is a very nice and friendly host. If you stay in his house in the middle of Bangkok you feel like in a small village. It´s so quiet und relaxed there. But you can find all you need in walking distance, 7-Eleven, TESCO, street food, mini-bus to the skytraine etc. Tony is very schooled with the history and the life of Bangkok and also a good guide. Every question and problem was responds from him. He is also a lovely baker. We absolutely enjoyed his australian cheesecake!
Tony was a great host. He helped me obtain a SIM card for my phone, showed my how to get around Thailand and gave me daily tips about where to go and how to get there. Very easy going and accommodating. Definitely went above and beyond to meet any needs I had as a traveler. I would recommend this homestay to anyone!
Our stay with Tony was a great experience. He was kind enough to pick us up upon arrival in Bangkok. He also gave us a personal tour so that we can easily go around the city during our stay. He is very helpful and friendly. He gave us several useful tips. We don't know what we would've done if it wasn't for Tony. We also had a chance to see how local Thais live in the neighborhood. We went to the fruit stand every morning. It was so delicious.
We had a wonderful stay with Tony. He picked up first my boyfriend from the airport and than me in the evening. We had a lovely first dinner together and got to know a lot of great information and Tipps , which was so helpful. The next day , Tony did a great tour with us and we had a lot of fun with him. He also didn't mind at all to let us back in late at night , which we really appreciated. The house is comfy and the are is really local which we enjoyed a lot. If you want a local experience with a lot of great Insider Tips and some fun conversations and have the convenience of getting picked up from the airport this is the thing to do. We are so happy we stayed with Tony. Hope we will meet again some day !
Tony was really helpful right from the word go. He taught us useful phrases, helped us to understand the basics of getting around and the do’s and don’ts of the Thai culture. He advised us how to deal with taxis and which ones to use, how much things should generally cost and when to haggle.
The house was situated within a local Thai area and around 20 mins from the centre by taxi if there’s not too much traffic.
The locals are very friendly and it’s a nice introduction to Bangkok to get you used to the general buzz about the place if you start here before venturing to the touristy area.
And the local pad Thai is the best we have had so far. Make sure to visit the fruit man in the morning and the sticky rice lady (you will start to dream about it).
Thanks Tony (and Bor) xx
