Great location, air conditioners that work well, well appointed and super location. Add to that a host is there to help you in any way and you have magic. Without hesitation we highly recommend this apt.
Convenient and Comfortable
We stayed in the town house March,3rd to March,7/18, It’s a great location in the old city. We were pick-up at the airport a given a quick tour around the old city and then onto the house to go over how everything worked there. It has a very modern feel. The location is in an alley which turned out to be nice as there was very little traffic and it was quite. We hired one of Charles drivers for 1 day to tour around to a few different locations that was a good day. Charles was fast to respond to any questions or concerns we had. The beds were comfortable and the house was very well equipped. We stayed in the bottom suite so we did have people above us which had a little one that liked to get up around 4:00am and run around for half an hour but that was the only negative the floor must have been properly constructed as we didn’t hear normal walking or conversation in our suite. There is very little outside room on the property to sit outside so if you like to hang outside it’s not great. I would stay again if returning to Chiang Ma.i
Luxurious Hospitality in Quiet Surroundings
As our host drove us back to the airport at the end of our month-long stay, my wife quite rightly told him that he is the best landlord we have ever had in fifty years of marriage. Not only did he take us out to lunch in one of his favourite local restaurants to acquaint us with the neighbourhood, but he also took us to the local supermarket to buy our groceries and then helped us to unload them.
His local knowledge, printed in his coffee table book of restaurants, favourite dishes, and various sites and contacts, is truly encyclopedic, as is his knowledge of movies and Netflix series, hundreds of which have been uploaded to the 60-inch Samsung Smart TV in the front room. He gave us at least a dozen suggestions for movies to watch, along with thoughtful advice about which places to visit, and which ones to avoid.
We regularly followed his advice, taking a temple tour with a former Buddhist monk who was enlightening in a very secular way, a full-day trip to Doi Inthanon, Thailand's highest mountain, and a full-day tour on the 100-km loop to Samoeng, with a host of attractions along the way. Our excursions were made in luxury vans at reasonable prices with a careful and considerate local driver. Because Charles had visited every elephant sanctuary, every wat, and every regional attraction, his advice was always authoritative and unfailingly helpful. In the process, he became a friend as well as a landlord, and he made our month-long stay one of the best in decades of traveling about Europe, Asia, and North America.
As for the condo itself, the leather couches and large beds were very comfortable, the Wifi and TV were hi-tech enough to allow me to watch the winter Olympics on a VPN network from Canada, and the kitchen was well-equipped for eating and drinking, though not always for cooking. (A single lidded pot and a small frying pan were the only stove implements available, although a rice-cooker was provided.) Yet an online account for home delivery from at least a hundred restaurants in Chiang Mai was available, and we used it often for a small delivery fee of $2.50.
Although the Chinese decorator was a little over the top in his choice of colours (mostly red and black) and of paintings and wooden furniture, we got used to it, even the open water closet and open shower (more like a car wash) in the gigantic master bedroom.
In sum, I can only say that this is truly a home away from home, particularly in Asia, and we would return in a heartbeat.
Fantastic property - in the heart of the city
Great location - brand new property, high tech entertainment and security systems. Lots of activities located walking distance. Tremendous experience - can’t wait to get back!
Awesome ! The home and its location were amazing, every detail was spot on! Thanks again Charles!!
This place could not have been any better, every detail was thought thru! The host was great in every way, he made the reservations for the excursions, gave us a detailed tour of the city after picking us up from the airport, every host should take note from his example, did not miss a thing!
The one regret is that our stay in your beautiful home was too short, but next time we will make sure that we spend way more time in Chiang mai and your awesome house! Thanks again for a great time, hope we meet again soon!
THE BEST HOUSE IN THE RIGHT PLACE IN CHIANG MAI
The hoste with the most
Nothing was a problem. Airport pick up and drop off. Location was spot on. A short walk from everywhere but far enough so no noise.
The house has every gadget you can think of and add a few more. My only regret was we didn't stY long enough. Charles know all the right places so please talk to him before booking anything. We stayed as a family of 4 for 4 days but we should of stayed for 7+ as we misssed out on so much. He did say but we had brought we knew best and got it wrong.
Would we go back ?
most definitely, don't miss out on the north and don't miss out on one of charles houses.
Dear Helen and Bob
