I spent 4 days in August with my wife & kid at Howie's... What an experience ?! This has actually been the best stay of a very long trip of 4 weeks in Thailand, with some serious rival places along the way (Soneva Kiri in Koh Kut, Four Seasons in Koh Samui, Peninsula in Bangkok etc...). Why? Because Howie's offers... More

I'm really not sure where to start....only because I don't know where to begin with the amazing adventure and secondly, what can I possible say about Howie's that hasn't already been said? Everything you read about Howie's HomeStay is true and then some. The beauty, the peace and quiet, and the attention to detail make it all so breathtaking. Howie... More

When my husband and I were planning our honeymoon we were debating between staying at the Four Seasons hotel and Howie's homestay and are beyond thankful we chose Howie's. The name is misleading but don't be fooled. This beautiful oasis was the beginning of a trip to remember. First of all the architecture is magical. A beautiful courtyard with different... More

Find your senses enlighten like never before. Find yourself smiling at the sight of this extraordinary property. Find yourself breathing peace and harmony while relaxing in the (almost) olympic-sized pool with water at perfect temperature. Find a collection of antiques from around the world meticulously arranged to surprise you at every turn. As soon as we walked on site, the... More

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
