How to find us?

We have two shelters: a small one in Chaweng at our house and the large one at Ban Taling Ngam in the south west of the island.

The shelter in Chaweng is daily opened from 9.30 to 18.00 o’clock and in Taling Ngam daily from 10.00 to 16.45. It is not necessary to make an appointment. Just come by and have a look at the shelters in Chaweng or Ban Taling Ngam! Of course, you can give us a call before you visit and ask for further information. Phone: 077 413 490 or 081 893 94 43 Brigitte. I speak German, English and Thai.

Getting to the Chaweng shelter (from the Beach Road)

If you are coming from the Chaweng Beach Road, head south until you reach the Chedi Spa (1) on your right (Family Mart at the corner). Turn right up the road after that (Sweet Corner ( 2) will be on your left) and walk 200 meters up to the fork in the road. Take the left hand fork (the 7-eleven (3) will be on your left) and walk up.
You will walk past the Chinese Temple (4) (on your left) and the Motorcross Stadium (5) (on your left). 30 metres after the Motorcross Stadium on your right is a small road (with DRCS and ‘Will Wait Apartment’ (6) signs). Turn right up this road to the top and ignore the dogs behind the gate at the top (these are our neighbours’ dogs). Go down the small road until the end.

 

Getting to the Chaweng shelter from the main ring road

We are about 3,000 meters south of Tesco. You will see the Bank of Ayudhya (7) on the left (yellow building with yellow sign) and turn left just after that (opposite Dive Supplies (8)).
Go down that road about 600 meters and you will see the signs for ‘Dow Seafood’ (9) then ‘Will Wait Apartment’ on the left. Turn left up the road with the DRCS and ‘Will Wait Apartment’ (6) signs. Go down the small road until the end.
Please ring the doorbell. When you come in, please make sure the dogs don’t get out and close the gate behind you!
