About John and Michele Lawson
Married for 23 years with two children we have travelled extensively for pleasure and business. Hua Hin has been our annual holiday destination now for the last 10 years.
John and Michele Lawson purchased this apartment in 2012
Why John and Michele Lawson chose Thailand
We fell in love with Hua Hin on our first visit and knew immediately that it was a place we would come back to regularly. It has so much to offer for holiday makers...a relaxed pace of life coupled with the vibrant downtown night scene, interesting night markets, the warm-hearted Thai people, the amazing low-priced food, the wonderful massages for 250 THB, but overall it's the blend of east meets west that Hua Hin delivers so well.
What makes this apartment unique
We decided to invest in Khao Takiab because we saw the area improving year on year, but mainly because it is the quieter part of town and enjoys the most natural and uncrowded beach. At that time, we had no idea how easy it was to get from Takiab into the centre of Hua Hin, nor how many good restaurants there were in Takiab itself. We selected The Seacraze condo for its fabulous pool, and great location close to the beach, restaurants, and green buses.

Best equipped place we've stayed. Good location-near restaurants and beach. Staff were very helpful.
Will make positive comments on VRBO. Will recommend you to others.
LaGrappa restaurant downtown was excellent!.
The other restaurant we really liked was about 2 blocks down-old Thai lady and her waitress spoke quite good English.
Modern apartment with a fabulous pool
My friend and I wanted somewhere to chill out for a couple of weeks before touring Vietnam and Laos. This proved to be the perfect choice. The apartment has two good sized bedrooms and two bathrooms (so no fighting over rooms!) and great views of the sea. The Seacraze pool is just amazing - the largest we have ever seen - and we've seen a few. The Seacraze apartments are very well run and easy to stay in - good lifts and this apartment is particularly well located on the top floor with outward looking views. Also quiet.
We got very fond of a couple of the restaurants just across the road. Very friendly and with delicious Thai food. But if you crave bright lights it is very easy to catch a taxi into Hua Hin and the delights of the night market. And the nearest beach turns out to be really quite unspoilt, but with sun beds and one very good restaurant in particular.
We would certainly stay there again.
Great apartment, lovely pool, right across from convenience store and easy transport in to Hua Hin
Hi, having previously stayed slightly out of town near Hua Hin on our last visit we were looking for somewhere more central and near the beaches, restaurants etc. but still having peaceful, luxury accommodation... we couldn't have made a better choice. The apartment is beautiful with a lovely relaxing swimming pool. The beach which in my opinion is better than the main Hua Hin beach is only a 5-10 min walk away with great places to eat - seafood etc, 7/11. a stones throw from the apartment. Recommended and would definitely return.
A well furnished and comfortable apartment on the 7th floor, the balcony in the afternoons was shady and with a slight breeze made a great place to sit and relax. Well equipped kitchen although we didn't cook (I am on holiday after all!), pool is very impressive and well maintained, office staff helpful when we arrived. security guys friendly. The location of the apartment was perfect for us, a short walk to two lovely beaches, plenty of bars and restaurants on the beach then just walk a little further on and the beach is pretty much yours with just a few other people taking a walk, a whole range of eating places so close by, we used The Oasis just across the road for lovely breakfast and great coffee, a very handy FamilyMart mini supermarked also just across the road for basic necessities. If you want to take a trip into the main part of Hua Hin, use the Green Bus (10 baht during the day or 15 baht after 7.00 pm) you will have to take a Tuktuk back after 9.00 pm and this cost us just 200 baht. We had a wonderful two weeks and would highly recommend this apartment.
This is a fine apartment, sleeps 4 in 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms one of which is en-suite. Well equipped and maintained; good management and staff run the complex which has the biggest pool I have ever seen, plus a fitness centre and a young childrens play room, both air conditioned.
Fine location being just minutes to the beach and the local bus to Hua Hin. Good local eating places very close and a couple of good hotels just a short walk away.
Would I go back? Yes!!

Activity and Interests
The Seacraze condo is literally 5 minutes walk from Khao Takiab beach, considered the quietest and best bay in the Hua Hin area. The beach is lined with small restaurants offering Thai and European food. Each restaurant has sunbeds to attract customers, they are either free or carry a nominal charge if you eat or drink. So you have a beautiful beach, sunbed, sunshade, great food, waiter service drinks - what more could you want! Jet-ski, horse-riding, & market sellers complete the package.
Hua Hin is 240 Km from Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) which takes just under 3 hours in a taxi and costs 2,000 Baht each way. We can arrange or recommend firms to you. Whilst car hire is easy from BKK, those unfamiliar with the route are advised to hire in Hua Hin. A car is not necessary for simply getting to and from Hua Hin but is recommended is you wish to travel to neighbouring area or attractions. Local taxi's are everywhere and not expensive.
Seacraze is just 7 kms south of the centre of this bustling seaside town. Getting to Hua Hin is easy. Songtaews (or ‘Baht buses’) are the cheapest method to take, costing 10 baht to and from central Hua Hin. These Green ‘buses’ leaves every 10 mins from the Police Station just 3 minutes walk from The Seacraze. They drop you in the middle of the famous night market, or at Market Village for indoor shopping and eating. Tuk-Tuks (bike taxis) ply the route for around 100-200 Baht (£4.00) each way.
Hua Hin is a favourite year-round beach resort for both Thai and foreign visitors situated just 3 hours drive from Bangkok airport. It is the only beach holiday destination in Thailand where a second internal flight is not needed. Hua Hin has retained its traditional charm without the wild nightlife found in other resorts, yet it has developed all the modern facilities required by visitors with an excellent choice of luxury hotels, and a staggering choice of restaurants. Hua Hin's climate is perfect, with lots of sunny days and comparatively low rainfall.
The more energetic can enjoy golf, elephant & horse riding, water sports, quad bikes or mountain biking or a day at the waterpark. There are 2 water parks to choose from, the newest being very close to the apartment and is said to be one of the largest in Asia. Less active pursuits include the buzzing night markets offering a wealth of fashion items and Thai crafts, a visit to the National Park, a relaxing spa treatment, or a wander round the many temples.
All visitors must experience the bustling night market in Hua Hin, and the Cicada craft market (weekends only). A modern shopping mall called Market Village (with Tesco Lotus) offers everything for the shopaholic and those missing the Western comforts like Macdonalds, PizzaHut, and Starbucks.
There are two Family Mart shops (7-11 type) within a hundred yards of The Seacraze, providing everything for your day to day needs.
Car and motorcycle rental is readily available, together with banking and currency exchange.
