I rented a standard room with partial view of the ocean close to the road. The room was roomy and comfortable, A/C, balcony with two chairs and a table, hammock, large bathroom. Clean. The mattress was somewhat hard, as is typical in Thailand. The location is a bit out of town, quiet on top of a hill and a ways from the beach - ae Lok (sp?) bay is the closest and it has awesome snorkeling. Renting a moped is a must for this place but it's only a 5 minute ride down to town and the ferry. Steve, the Danish guy who runs the place is a sweetheart and atmosphere at the place was relaxed and collegial. Steve was extremely helpful and dug out some snorkeling gear for me to borrow in Aeo Lok Bay, gave me a ride to town, and told me where to find the best and least expensive fruit stand and good food. The food at the Seaview restaurant was also very good. Like most places on Ko Tao, there are scuba divers staying at Seaview too but this place is not a scuba-diving resort and the talk around the common area does not revolve around diving.
