Som and her husband Phillippe were very helpful and gave us plenty of pointers that made our time in Koh Tao even better. Nice, clean, central location within Mae Haad and is quick walk away from the ferry terminal. Our room had 2 queen beds, a separate shower, and towels/dry bags were provided. Highly recommended!

We stayed at the apartment which is very spacious and decorated with Julius Verne motiv, feels like being in a submarine! Centrally located, near the Pier and the beach: Perfect especially if you come from the mainland after having travelled with the night boat. The host offered a great service, all info and reservations needed.

It was a real pleasure having you here and great satisfaction in knowing that you enjoyed your time here. We try to recommend restaurants, pubs or spots to discover. A little help from local people is sometime better than an heavy guidebook ! Greetings from Koh Tao !

This was my second visit to Captain Nemo. Philippe and Som are most friendly and really made me feel welcome again. The room was clean and comfortable meeting all my needs with a daily service.

Captain Nemo Guesthouse has been incredible. We stayed for 5 nights at the guesthouse. The room was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. It was nice to have separate shower, too. The owner, Philipe, went out of his way to make our stay as comfortable and convenient as possible. When we arrived, he pulled us out of the rain, offered us...

Captain Nemo Guesthouse is located in a great location near the pier and shopping/restaurants yet is a nice quiet retreat. Our room faced the coconut trees so was really nice and quiet (apart from the roosters in the morning!). The owners were very friendly and accommodating. A nice place to stay and would recommend them!

it's located at the main beach, where the ferries arrive. We went there based on the great reviews from tripadvisor and weren't dissapointed. Although we showed up without any reservation (we're both backpackers and didn't know the exact dates we would be in Koh Tao), due to the low seasons we didn't have any problem to get a room.
