The public transport is infrequent from our local village (Nai Sa) into Krabi town and back but there are buses which run on Thai time – or when they have enough passengers!
The local buses run from the Tha len (ferry terminal ) via Nai Sa to Krabi town and back.
The Tha len ferry boats run between Tha len via Kho Yao then to Phuket which is a nice alternative way to leave or go to Phuket from Krabi.
Longtail boat trips out to the fabulous Phung nga bay can be organised with the locals and leave from the navigable creek headwaters 200m from the house or from Ao Nung & Tha len
We can recommend a variety of day trips on the bay and mountains to suit your interests
We love the classic Honda 125cc motor bikes or similar for local transport but wouldn’t use them ourselves for long trips along the highways
Please take care when diving motor bikes in Thailand - We want you to have a safe & memorable trip and come back again.

A really comfortable and enjoyable stay. The ecovilla is spacious, well-equipped and has an extensive garden and ponds containing a wealth of plants and wild and domesticated animals. A pleasure to walk round.
A pleasingly rural location but handy for the local village - the market on wednesdays and saturdays is recommended.
Joy, our host, went out of her way to make us welcome and helped tremendously with understanding the local culture, booking visits and onward travel. Joy’s cooking is also recommended and very reasonably priced.
We would unreservedly recommend this property.
We really loved our stay here. We could have stayed for weeks longer. It has the wow factor, a stunning place with so many animals. We didn't get to meet David, but joy was an amazing host. She really went the extra mile to ensure our stay was amazing. There are so many things to do here, and she offered us push bikes, motorbikes and gave us constant ideas for what to do. The kids loved her, and we all fell in love with their home. We would go back if we return and stay for longer. Eating fresh coconuts from one of the trees was fantastic for the kids. The creek was very dangerous for the young kids, but under our careful watch we all really enjoyed it and it wasn't so close to the house that we felt nervous about the kids. A lovely spot for nature lovers. Very special.
