What else can I write about Howie’s Homestay that have not already been said? What else can I say about this wonderful place, most gracious hosts and extraordinary vacation that we had? Probably, a poem by Lord Byron can describe my appreciation for this beauty of a place and the lovely experience we had with Howie’s homestay. She Walks in... More

Exceptional architecture, breathtaking environment, great hosts, wonderful food and attention to details are what you will experience at Howie's Homestay. We spent 4 nights 5 days and had a memorable time with our family and friends.

If you are looking for a unique experience in an exceptional setting in the hills above Chiang Mai, look no further. If you are looking for someplace with character and not a sterile cookie-cutter hotel, this is the place. If you enjoy privacy but aren't afraid to exchange friendly banter with your gracious hosts, then Howie and Jerri will welcome... More

Howie's Homestay has created an entirely new category of luxury accommodations, combining the attention to detail of a Ritz with the personal touches of visiting family. This should be a must for anyone visiting Chiang Mai!!!

We had a wonderful stay at Howie's Homestay -- from the minute we arrived up to the moment we said good-bye. The grounds, architecture, accommodations, and views are magnificent. We immediately felt at home on the property and with our wonderful hosts Howie and Jerry. Our many conversations were enjoyable and insightful. They added to our experience of Thailand, as... More

Well, what else can be said that hasn't already been mentioned in the 40+ reviews for this place (which, as you can see, were all extremely highly rated, without a single negative comment)? This beautiful home turned resort is all of that and more. I will start by touching upon what we (my girlfriend and I) love - food. Coming... More

Absolutely amazing!!! That's my reaction when ever anyone asks about our stay at Howie's HomeStay. I am honestly not sure that it is possible to describe how majestic Howie's HomeStay is in words, but I will give it a try. My wife and I spent 2 incredible nights at Howie's during our Honeymoon trip to Thailand in November and it... More

We just got back from our visit to Chiang Mai which included a very memorable stay at Howie’s Homestay. Before we left for our trip, we anticipated our stay with Howie and Jerry to be the highlight of our visit to Thailand and they did not disappoint. From picking us up at the airport to discussing our daily itineraries, Howie... More

Have you ever wanted your own 5- star resort all to yourself? My husband gifted me a week at Howie's for my birthday. We thought a week in one intimate place might be too long--it wasn't long enough! Howie is the quintessential perfect host: his stories range from hilarious to enchanting and there is nothing we wanted that he didn't... More

My family (with daughters aged 7 and 5) spent New years Eve and New Years Day at Howies and it was fantastic. After our delicious arrival lunch we were looking forward to more of the same amazingly good Thai food (the best of our two week trip by far) but Howie suggested going to a Mediterranean restaurant in town to...
