Catering to the demands of the budget travelers and those after a good value, this friendly and homey guest house is located on the southern end of Karon and within walking distance of a marvelous beach. This property is made up of 20 guestrooms, each one well-decorated and adequately furnished. All rooms come fitted with air conditioning, an in-room safe, cable TV, large fridge, free Wi-Fi access, and an en-suite bathroom with a hot shower. Ten of the king rooms have been upgraded in the summer of 2013 and are now designated as superior, and all come with balconies. Standard twins, kings, and triples are available. Most of the rooms are up two flights of stairs, so if you are elderly, infirm, or travelling with young children, please bear this in mind. For those on the tightest of budgets, there's a ten-bed mixed dorm with many fans and air conditioning. The in-house restaurant, Pineapple Café, is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and serves up great local and Western cuisine. Just within the vicinity are a number of restaurants and sites for guests to venture out to. This family-run place offers clean, comfortable rooms at a great value, and the hospitable staff will do their best to ensure an enjoyable stay.

This was a return for us after a 3 year gap. It was good before but even better now - immaculately clean rooms, comfy bed, fridge, kettle and nice little touches like diffusers and complimentary water . Really friendly owner and staff - we will be back and have no hesitation recommending. Well Placed for beach, shops and nightlife .
Perfect budget accommodation! ”
This is the 3rd time I've stayed at Pineapple Guest House and it won't be my last! The rooms are spotlessly clean with ice cold air con and nice hot shower. WiFi is steady and strong! Less than a 10 minute walk to Karon Beach and nightly food market just around the corner... the perfect place for the perfect stay. Highly Recommended!
Super clean with comfortable bed and quality linens. Just a quick 10 minute walk and your toes are in the sand of Karon Beach. Tons of restaurants in the neighborhood with a nightly food market 100 meters away. Incredible value! Highly Recommended!
The owners, Steve and Lek, are helpful and informative, and truly care about their guests. Their cleaning staff is awesome, the floors shine! The value here is tremendous! Quick walk to beach, and the food here is good and reasonable. Would stay again.
Great value Guesthouse”
Guest information - very helpful owners with good local area knowledge. Location - walking distance to the beach and close to locally priced eating ( shops and restaurants actually on the beach are very expensive, this guesthouse has good access to more reasonably priced shops etc. Clean - 1 of the cleanest guesthouses I've stayed in.
A good inexpensive place”
This place is typical of many basic but good value guest houses in the 3 beaches area - inexpensive, comfortable, clean. What separates it is Brit Stephen who co-owns it with his Thai missus - Steve has a wealth of knowledge of the Phuket situation and communicates this well. My room was spacious and clean with quiet aircon, adequate storage and a comfy king size bed. The area was not particularly noisy (it is off the main road so traffic noise is not an issue) and had a big range of restaurants, banks, retailers and other services. A 24hour 7/11 minimart was about 100m away - there were dinner-time inexpensive food hawkers with the usual yummy stuff in front of the store. one fault with Pineapple was lack of a credit card facility which makes purchase of some of the more expensive tours more difficult. Other area travel stores could do this.
Outstanding guesthouse, wonderful staff.”
My buddy and I originally booked three nights at the Pineapple and liked it so much we extended the stay 4 more nights. It is located off of a side street off of one of the main arteries in Karon and about a 10 min easy walk to the beach. A little bit noisy, but not too bad and not an issue at night. At first you may be taken back by the location, but it actually is just great. It's surrounded by restaurants, massage places, shops and just about anything else you need. Also right next to an ATM and within crawling distance to a 7-11. Motorbike rental is available right on the property. Our rooms were spacious, clean and up-to-date with good aircon, showers and wifi. The price was very inexpensive in the high teens USD. The big plus is the staff. What wonderful people. From the owner Steve a British dude to the husband and wife managers to the cleaning staff, everyone was welcoming, smiling, helpful and fun. We really enjoyed our stay at The Pineapple and would highly, highly recommend it to anyone looking for less expensive digs and a great experience. Thanks Pineapple for a great stay. - Ken and Jeff
Friendly and helpful staff.”
We were a group of 17 people. When we booked, we could only find place for 12 through Agoda, but when we landed there, the staff organised accommodation for us all in no time. They were all very helpful, and nothing was a problem too big to solve. When we proceeded to our next destination, they organised us very comfortable transport.
A place to feel at home”
From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel at home. We were a large group, but all our needs were seen to. Sai and the rest of the staff were great. Steve is very patient and, although bombarded with questions at all times, answers all queries, and goes out of his way to help. One of our group members forgot her mobile in the van we had hired. By that time we were already far away, but he went to great length to get it to her. I highly recommend Pineapple.
Super friendly and helpful staff,rooms large location great and only 5 min walk to beach”
Location,cafe,cleanliness and staff brilliant
Friendly staff and owner”
My family had a pleasant stay in Karon. The staff are friendly including the owners. They were very helpful too. They also let us borrow beach mats and beach toys which made my kids excited everytime we go to the beach. The location is few minutes walk to the beach and near to massage centers, eatery and mini marts.
Great stay with the Pineapple! The staff was friendly and accommodating. They were always available for a chat or advice. The location was a short walk to the beach with food and a seven-11 on the corner. Definately staying here again. :)
Great price and location”
Very nice staff, who always ready to help you. Location is excellent-5 minutes to the beach, and also area is quiet, which is good, especially after patong ))) rooms are also very clean, and cleaning is every day. I felt like I was at home. Thank You, Pineapple team, and Steve especially)-
The guest house is an ideal location as it is very close (9min) to Hat Karon beach. In front of the hotel there are plenty of street food stalls like grilled seafood skewers, banana rotting, pad thai, and many more. There are also my restaurants nearby.
Good location & Comfortable stay”
5 minutes walk to Karon Beach. It is not really situated at the main road, so I had good night sleep every night, but everything is near. Eateries aplenty, night stalls set up nearby, there's a 7Eleven few steps away, not by the beach but near. Stayed in dormitory room. Everything was comfortable. Basic but enough. Locker and padlock are provided.
Good Value, 5mins to the beach ”
Located near a noisy street with traffic and it was quite loud most of the time. It is only 5mins walk to the beach and there are restaurants, massage and street food vendors around the corner. They have a policy that you put your dirty towels on the floor and the cleaners will replace it with a clean one - I did this, went out for a few hours, and when I came back I found
Solo traveler in Thailand”
Very nice and helpful staff! They even organize and buy your ticket for transfers to other islands which takes a load off. Situated close to the beach and to many restaurants. A short walk to a market as well.
Great place for a great price! The two owners were so lovely and helpful. They went out of their way numerous times to help us out. They give great tips and advice. We stayed in the deluxe room and it was very spacious and clean. They clean the rooms everyday. The deluxe rooms are all on the second floor with balconies so you can dry your wet items easily. We stayed 4 nights but could have easily stayed longer. They provide beach towels as well and straw mats and umbrellas! About a 5 min walk to the beach. If you stay here, try pim's kitchen for lunch one day! Garlic shrimp there is to die for! :)
Pineapple Guesthouse Stay”
It was a pleasant stay. Although I booked king size bed but i got twin bed instead, the guesthouse owner apologize and allow for late check out. The air-cond can be place nearer to the bed for faster cooling. Overall it is a very good choice for budget traveller.
Guesthouse that makes u feel like home”
I found a thread somewhere on where a guy was highly recommending this place, and turned out it's 90 steps away from the dive shop I was using for my diving, so I booked a room in Pineapple Guesthouse. It was a very well-priced room and had everything I need during travel: good shower, king bed, a big fridge, big mirror, big closet with hangers, complimentary drinking water, very clean, daily service... even a balcony with floor to ceiling windows! So, the room part was amazing. Now, the customer service. During my travels I don't like staying in resorts: I enjoy getting to know local people, talking to them about their culture, life and aspirations - that feels like the most authentic way to familiarize oneself with a new place so a guesthouse sounded very nice.. I met with the owner, Lek, who checked me in. From our first meeting, I had a nice warm feeling from her. Right away, she advised me which shop to go to ("don't buy anything there - it's too expensive; I'll take you to a cheaper store"), how to entertain myself during my stay and little by little we started hanging out together. I felt so ... at home with her. As if I was visiting my lovely cousin whom I haven't seen in a very, very long time... And I wasn't the only one: she was always eager (and happy!) to help whoever needed her help. Her guesthouse was fully booked during my entire stay, so when customers came looking for a room, she was eager to help them find a room elsewhere (sometimes even driving them to other places on her scooter and find more affordable rooms: "this hotel is no good - rooms are too expensive"). Since I was traveling alone, Lek invited me to go to the festival with her family, and we had lots of fun. We were shopping together, eating together, playing with kids and basically spending all off-beach time together, and I felt like part of her big happy family. I even tortured her a little bit with my vegan cooking))) and she gladly accepted. Talking to Lek,
