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...

We stopped by to stay with Howie and Jerri for Christmas. It was one our best holidays yet. the property is great. The whole family had space to relax and there was plenty to do in the surrounding area. The food is awesome.

My husband and I spent two amazing days at Howie's during our honeymoon. Howie and Jerri were perfect hosts and went out of their way to make sure our experience was perfection. The grounds are stunning, the service is incredible, and the company warm and friendly. Jerri's cooking was the best food we had while in Asia. The lunch (8... More

We took a risk with Howie. Seduced by the gorgeous photos on the website and the promise of amazing home cooked Thai food, we impulsively booked a 5 day 4 night stay at Howie's for our extended family of 7 - Only to get cold feet as the holiday drew near. With three rambunctious and quirky kids, were we insane... More

As you enter into Howie's Homestay you can't help but to leave all of your troubles and worries at the door as you're surrounded by plush greenery and nice mountain views. My wife and I went to Chiang Mai for her birthday in hopes of catching a meteor shower and although it was too cloudy to get a good look... More
