We spent six nights in Joy's house and also did a six day trip to the north of Thailand with two guides from Joy's team. All of this was a great experience for our whole family, getting deep into the Thai culture and way of living and getting to know great Thai people. The most exciting experience certainly have been... More

If you like to be part of a big thai family, have fun, learn about thai tradition and culture and support a great concept, helping unfortunate thai youngsters with life and education than you must visit Joy's house and children-shelter foundation.

We have been at Joy's house in July 2014. Very friendly place, tidy and extremely helpful people. Due to its size we knew all other guest quickly. Very good food by the way. We found it very attractive to be a small part of the 'children foundation' and to learn about this project. Furthermore Joy's house is a very good... More

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
