If you're searching for an incredible lodging experience in the Chiang Mai area, look no further! Howie's is the place to stay, without a doubt. We just returned home to the US from Thailand, and our 3 nights at Howie's were the highlight of our vacation. It is an experience we will never forget. My relationship with Howie's began in... More

Howie's Homestay has been an experience of a life time. We were surprised, overwhelmed and filled with joy at every corner. On our morning we awoke to a beautiful breakfast by the pool - which was just huge. Howie was there to greet us. After filling up on fresh fruit, freshly squeezed orange juice, lovely coffee and warm bread, we... More

Since we reside in Bangkok, we are fairly familiar with everything Thailand, and so it was a bit of a challenge to deliver a unique birthday experience over a long weekend for my wife and kids. After comparing all the usual 5 and 6 star accommodations in Phuket and Chiangmai, the locations ,however lovely, they all just seemed too familiar.... More

We stayed at Howie's Homestay for three nights during our honeymoon, and it was truly a highlight of our trip to Thailand. Howie and his wife Jerri have built an amazing home outside of Chiang Mai, with beautiful buildings set in the middle of a carefully curated garden that spans the entire property. We loved staying in our own building,... More

We had a small amount of trepidation about booking what was a private hotel. being the only guests and having the owners being present... it was for sure something different than we had ever ventured into on our previous holidays. From the moment we arrived at this spectacular property we knew we had made the right decision. The entry way... More

The smartest choice that I made in 2014 so far is to stay at Howie's. Not to mention the private and luxurious experience the place offered, the warmest care of Howie and Jerri made me fell in love with Chiang Mai and their place. I am already planning to go back with my whole family to stay at their amazing... More

Our family spent the 2014 CNY holidays at Howie's "palace" which has been a luxurious and out of this world experience. The landscaping and gardening is exquisite and so is the hospitality of the hosts, Howie and Jerri. By far, they serve the best Thai food (homemade with fresh produce) we've ever had!!
