We went to Chiang Mai for service, my 3 other friends and I, and decided to affiliate with Joy's house. They gave us really pretty and cute air conditioned rooms with warm water in the showers, and clean facilities. The guesthouse itself is very pretty and the food, amazing. The staff is super friendly and approachable and sleep quality is... More

Whenever we are in Chiang Mai - we stay at JH: Located at a short taxi drive from the center of Chiang Mai, you will find a real place to relax. Every room is different and has its typical thai-style. You can decide between a wide range of activities: Enjoy the spa or the swimming pool, learn how to do... More

We spent 4 nights at Joys house and could have happily stayed for much longer. The rooms are spotless and extremely well decorated, the food was some of the best we have had in Thailand. Now for the really good stuff, the staff are fantastic and nothing is too much trouble. We went on a trip to visit the temples... More

Joy's house has a beautiful reason to exist, but they have to decide whether they are a guesthouse or a children shelter. They can't be both.
