“Great place for a retreat”
Reviewed July 19, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This is an away-from-the Madding-crowd kind of place. Quiet & comfortable for either a retreat or a group looking for a peaceful getaway. Ali, the lady in charge, is very resourceful & can organise delicious meals!

“Heaven on Earth”
Reviewed November 27, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We stayed here with our two young kids for a week and absolutely loved it. The property itself is stunning, huge lawns, a fantastic swimming pool overlooking the river. The beds were so comfortable and the decor is magnificent. There is so much space inside and outdoors for the kids to play and explore. It was the perfect place for us to destress and slip easily and seamlessly into holiday mode.

It's super close to the Tiger Kingdom and the extreme sports centre which was great for us.

I absolutely loved everything about this place, I highly recommend this for family vacations or large group getaways such a hens trip.

“Gorgeous location”
Reviewed April 1, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

I hosted an intimate spiritual, self catering yoga retreat at this venue. It proved to be a wonderful venue. The house manager Ali who is present at differing times during the day is a total God send. She makes everything you need just magically happen. There was pile driving going on at the next door property and she even managed to get this stopped for the duration of the stay. The on site gardener, Nuh, is always a willing assistant for moving things about and cracking coconuts. He also bug proofs the outdoors and keeps the outside areas clean and swept.
The venue is beautifully appointed and has sufficient space for guests to take private time alone without having to stay in their rooms. The pool is beautiful and the surroundings are isolated and full of nature, the beds are excellent and the bathrooms are well equipped.
My only pointer here would be that the kitchen is a little under equipped and could do with a well thought out renovation to bring it up to the same standard as the rest of the house. That being said, it is still serviceable and is easily used. One of the big focusses of my retreat was food preparation and nutrition so perhaps my requirements were a little higher than the usual guest.
Overall though, I would highly recommend this property and will certainly be back again to host a similar style yoga retreat.

“Fantastic house for large group”
Reviewed March 11, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

16 of us stayed in the house for a 5 day yoga retreat in March and we all loved it - the house is secluded and quiet but it is only 15-25min drive to Chiang Mai. I would strongly advise renting a car as you will need it to go grocery shopping / get around. If you are a large group, Ali, the one-site, helper can book minivans for you (up to 12 people in the minivan including the driver).

The house has everything you need for a large group to spend a fun time together - garden, swimming pool, big table for big dinners, BBQ, TV area, etc

There is a big Makro supermarket c10min drive from the house, an amazing organic salad shop 5min drive, a convenient store 5 min drive so it s easy to get what you need

We came for a yoga retreat and there are several spaces to practice yoga: the ground floor patio that can easily fit 20 people, the terrace upstairs or the garden.

Ali will help for general cleaning, make the bed every day, etc but if you want her to do extra such as cleaning the dishes, setting up the table, etc you should pay her extra. There is a dishwasher but it is in the upstairs kitchen, which is a bit unpractical.

Overall a great stay - a few minor issues (lack of cooking utensils, only one tiny toaster, no good knifes, small improvement needed in the bathrooms) but the owner is aware of them now and hopefully it should all be fixed.

Enjoy!

“Great big house but a bit random”
Reviewed February 23, 2015 for a stay in February 2015
1
person found this review helpful

Its a huge house, would be great for large parties. Comfy beds but most of the bathrooms have a shower over a bath that isn't tall enough to actually shower in which is a bit annoying.

Aly, the house keeper is nice but its a bit unclear what her role is and when she might turn up or where she might be. We'd think we were alone in the house and she's pop up (from a cupboard or a chair etc). However, she will do all your washing and get you food, washing up etc so you felt well looked after. Also there is nothing in walking distance so if you don't have your own transport you are reliant on calling her any time you want anything.

The general area is very nice, quiet countryside outside of Chiang Mai town - paddy fields etc and I'd totally praise this house for this except that the beautiful view of the sun going down over the river is now obscured by a house being contructed (might be OK again when the house is finished rather than looking at a building site) and there is a house being built next door - while Aly asked them to stop the noisy construction early in the morning it is harder to enjoy sitting by the pool when you have the noise of a pile driver going all day long (and construction workers who seem to want to do things at the river end of the fence when your in the pool!)

You can easily use this as a base to explore chiang mai town - its not that far away.

The organisation of the house would benefit for some general information about services etc and also a map as even my friends who live a couple of miles away struggled for an hour to find it.

“A real paradise”
Reviewed October 8, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The title paradise is very suitable. We were 10 family members with babies as well and stayed for 4 days. Very spacious, relaxing, well equipped place. Ali the house keeper is very gentle and organised every thing we needed. There is also a gargener who will wait for you every day when you come back to see that you don't miss anything. Kitchens one in each floor. Thi style house with attention to little details. The only problem one might have is that you have to get a transportation to town as it is 40 minutes drive. It cost us 1000 B each side. It is better to take somebody for the whole day which cost 2500 including gasoline.
