Tiya's Place is what is known in Thailand as a ShopHouse building. It consists of 6 floors, each floor is a large Studio (bedroom/living/dining area combined in one large room) apartment of about 65 square metres, inclusive of a large balcony or terrace, 4 with a sea view. We are neither a Guest House nor a Condo complex, just a building with independent apartments, available for long or short stay rental.
A ShopHouse is everywhere in Thailand, it is just a way of describing a building that can be a mix of living/office/retail use. Entry is by keycard, via an office/reception/communal ground floor.
We are only 3 minutes walk to the beach. The beach road has all the usual shops, restaurants, bars and more.
The Soi (street) we are on is quiet, as there are no bars, it is a street of Guest Houses, a few basic food/drink outlets, hair salons etc. There is parking, though not extensive. There is a very large (not far off Olympic size) outdoor swimming pool nearby (5 minutes walk) which is open to all for a small fee.
The beach road is very well serviced with cheap "taxis" (2 sided pick up trucks, called Songtaews) to all major points within the Jomtien/Pattaya area. Metered taxis are also available, though the norm is the former (can also be privately hired). All nightlife entertainment is within easy reach by walking to the nearby Soi Welcome or by transport to the top end of the beach road and onwards into Pattaya (such as the famous Walking Street).
Access to the area from Bangkok and its airport is easy by car, taxi and bus.
