We are minutes away from having the saddest part of our three week vacation in Thailand. That will happen when we check out of Howie's Homestay, which has been the highlight of our trip to this very special part of the world. From the moment of arrival, it b came clear that we were to be in for a real... More

We stayed at Howie's Homestay as part of our honeymoon as we were looking for an experience that was different than a typical hotel. We definitely found it! Howie was the ultimate host, and was instrumental to our trip as a whole. He provided lots of invaluable advice based on his knowledge from living in Thailand (Howie knows all!), which... More

What a treat it was to end our two week family trip at Howie's! I find that saving the best for last makes for the most memorable vacations. Thailand is an incredible country and Howie and Jerri made us feel right at home. From arranging our transportation and adventures, to preparing beautiful and delicious Thai cuisine, and the perfection of... More

Where to start....without doubt one of the most spectacular Properties we have ever stayed in. There is nothing like this in the West. It is hard to remember it is a house and not a hotel given its well designed layout offering numerous secluded outside living spaces. The living areas are designed to offer privacy if you are staying with... More

Thanks to Howie's HomeStay, the last 4 days in Chiang Mai were the BEST of our entire trip to Thailand! We had lots of things planned, but everyone just wanted to stay at Howie's and enjoy the best food, rooms and other amenities we had ever seen. His home is simply without comparison and difficult to describe! Look at the... More

Our dear friends introduced us to Howie's HomeStay, and the experience has been exquisite and memorable. Seamless transfers from the airport, friendly staff, a beautiful property, excellent cuisine, and great hosts made for a complete experience that I will gladly recommend to my friends. All the smallest details are attended to standards comparable to the best of the 5 Star... More

We were two couples on a three week vacation to Southeast Asia, and after reading the rave reviews of Howie's Homestay on trip advisor, I booked two nights. Honestly wished we had been able to stay longer! The main guesthouse as well as all the other buildings are exquisite. The design of the buildings as well as all the furnishings... More

There are not enough adjectives to adequately describe Howie's Homestay. My wife and I stayed at Howie's to celebrate our 10th year anniversary: we could not have made a better choice. Howie and Jerri are the consummate hosts and did everything with the utmost style, grace and perfection. The beauty of the Homestay and surrounding area in person surpasses the... More

This review is long overdue. I stayed at Howie's in August. I had high expectations and Howie's didn't let me down! Howie arranged everything for me and had a really nice guide take me to great places in Chiang Mai. But most importantly, the home is impeccable and Howie and Jerri are great hosts! The decoration, room and service are... More
