Icandi is situated 10 minutes from Paknampran, a local squid fishing town with great fish restaurants. It is a very Thai town and is nice for exploring, getting a real flavour of Thai life.
The villa is set in two acres of gardens and is a few minutes drive from two wonderful beaches. Many small boutique hotels are located along the beach road and offer great services and food. There are also some small convenience stores dotted around the area.
A beautiful Wat (temple) is a couple of minutes from the house with another in the next village. There are lots of local beachside restaurants for a nice evening meal or an evening drink.
This area is great for exploring Thailand on a bicycle and hire can be arranged if wished. For the energetic, a climb up Khao Kalok in the early morning is well worth the effort. A guide can be arranged and is advised as this climb is suitable only for people without health problems.
