              Great place. Impossible to reach management and no on-site staff”

              Pros: really good size apartment in an excellent location. 5 minute walk to the beach and a big Tesco as well. Directly beside a local market and on Sunday might there is a night market basically at your door but the apartment is tucked away from the noises and people. Cons: NO staff on site and when we showed up we had to call and tell the lady we had arrived and wait for her to show up and let us in. Really dumb system.. I asked if that is always the case and was told they expect people to tell them their arrival time ( need to make that very clear on the booking site). Also the manager is impossible to reach by email. We were told that they forgot to check it for the whole 10 days we stayed. No dish soap to clean dishes but we just bought some. And from time to time the smell of the market can be quite pungent but whatever, it's thailand. Overall a great place for a great price, just be prepared to be self sufficient. Would stay again based on price, location and place

              Room is perfect, but”

              Room is perfect and very spacious. I stayed alone, it was like a hotel. There are living room and kitchen for cooking But there aren't front desk. So it's hard to get some information or something. Even if I left the hotel, there isn't someone. And it's expensive to go to the Chaweng Beach. If you will stay only near the Lamai Beach, this hotel is pretty good.

              Everything was beyond my expectations. The price was unbeatable. That scooter we hired from the owner was 50 baht cheaper than all other places. If only I had gotten a massage while down there. So cheap compared to Bangkok!

              The Cave is a cool space however be prepared that no one is onsite. The owner lives nearly an hour away and doesn't come often. No cleaning on the room and u only get fresh towels every 4 days or so. It was owner or reception was on site it'd be a lot better.

              It was a great stay. The room is big and clean. The manager was nice and kind. The place is quiet and it has a great location. The only thing is the smell outside the apartment because its beside the public market, But over all its worth the money.

              no service at all”

              Apartment is generally okay and the smell was not too bad as described in some other reviews. If you know what to expect, it might be okay as the room is fine and location good. But unfortunately the owners/staff does not seem to care at ALL (!). We send them a message about our arrival which was ignored and we had to call them several times after we arrived before they came to just handover the key without a word and leave. We stayed 3 nights and had only 1 toilet paper. The room was also of course never cleaned and towels were never changed. We had sent a message to them but never received a response. When we were leaving, we just left the key in the room - we never met anyone from the accommodation. In addition to this, the room as partially really dusty and not clean - like only general cleaning is done....Unfortunately very dissappointed!

              We loved staying in this place! Cool, spacious, quiet, well functioning accomodation. Close to our restaurants of choice (vegan) Easy 10 min walk to the beach. Check in was easy, the lady was there, we told her what time we would be there. We did not see her again, but we did no need either.

              Place was clean except some kind of creature had pood on the bed but I guess that’s not the hotels fault and the place comes with toilet paper and basic soap but no water or anything like a normal hotel. Also you never meet the staff, they just leave the key in the room and you show up. It’s exactly like an air B and B. The room was really cool and great location. I would stay again because it was so cheap. It’s what you pay for

              Beware of the scam”

              We waited in front of the place for two hours and half after our planned time of check in. Half way through, a woman came, explaining she was from the Cave Studio, speeking no english. She left straight away without saying anything, just after seeing there was nobody at the "reception" (wich was supposed to be opened). We called the owner over 10 times with no reply so then called agoda who didnt manage to reach the owner until 30 minutes later. The owner told them it was best we went away and found a new place to stay because they where in a rush. This basically wasted us a big part of a day but we did get refunded.
