Real rustic and true feel of Thailand - loved the open plan and the fact that everyone made you feel part of the family. I read a not so great review below, which made me worry, but I assure you that's not true and the people and kids are all great and grateful and welcoming for your visit. It's a... More

We had a lovely stay at Joy's House - the staff and children were realy helpful and very friendly. Definitely a special place to stay and it felt like you were seeing the real Thailand and not just some chain hotel that would be the same the world over. It's also worth booking yourself in for a massage during your... More

Yup, this is an unashamed rave review! But believe me, it's warranted. I stayed at Joy's House for a month and had a wonderful time - people really made me feel like I was part of the family. I felt the staff and students went out of their way to look after me and I felt privileged to be given... More

I'm not at all sure about this place. Many of the children seemed to work quite a lot, especially one girl from Burma who was about 10 which led me to wonder when she studied/went to school. One evening I got lost when out and about and kept ringing the switchboard for directions but there was no'one on duty at... More
