I loved my stay at Bird of Paradise. It was just so peaceful and relaxing. Steve is a wonderful host with so much information if you need it. The porch among the leaves is a perfect place to have a cold beer. There is a store five minutes away with everything you need. A ten minute walk will get you to the crab market, where you can either buy from a vendor, squid, fish, crab, chicken, with the pepper they rave about, and it is worth raving about. Or you can choose from a heap of restaurants on the water. If it's breakfast you're after try the Arts Cafe, where you can enjoy your coffee while staring at the sea. Kep Beach is about a fifteen minute walk, where you can find some white sand. The national park is a five minute tuk tuk ride from Steve's an up the hill. If it's peace and quiet and few cold beers you're after, having done the rest of the country, then Bird of Paradise is perfect.
