The first thing that I noticed was that we were the only guest there. After a warm welcome from Malee we were guided to our cabin. A nice spacy bungalow without a view, as she promised. You'r actualty looking right into the woods. In comparisson to the alternative Dao's Nest (right next door), the atmosphere there is much warmer and... More

We totally loved staying at Malee's little paradise! It has a wonderful garden with plenty of local and exotic trees and flowers, the bungalows are naturally beautiful, and the owners are really friendly and helpful! Just go and try it out :-)

We had a great time at Malee's! We stayed one night in a very nice, clean, but basic hut. The two owners Malee (Thai) and Kurt (Swiss) are super friendly and helpful. Even though we booked in short notice they organized a trip to the Doi Luang Chiang Dao mountain. Which we can highly recommend. We had a super nice... More

My dad has stayed at Malee's in the past many times. For me it was my first visit. It has a peacefulness about it and I felt it was like a retreat. Malee was very helpful in giving us advice on how to get tickets up the mountain. If not for her we wouldn't have been able to go up... More

Malees was a nice getaway from the city life on Chaing Mai. Bungalows were private and in good shape and the owners were caring, gracious, informative, and funny. It's a little bit pricier than a normal guest house but it's not a normal guest house.

The bungalow was ok. There is not a lot of natural light, and seems quite dark inside. The owner is a bit cold, not the most welcoming. There isn't much of a swimming pool either! Wifi wasn't great in our bungalow, the signal wasnt strong enough so couldn't get on. Price seems a bit overpriced for what we got. We... More

Drove in and we were made to feel welcome right off. Dinner was excellent and do try some of the homemade mulberry wine ! Stayed only 1 night but I think it would be an excellent home base for a few days. Some one mentioned the sheets seemed dirty and I would agree that they seemed ready to be retired.... More
