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. The most concerning issue was seeing children making up our room. 3 or 4 at the same time. And as they are children ( I would say ages from 10 to 15), they are... More

We visited the Children's Shelter Foundation, a 30 minutes ride from Joy's house and it's a half day tour at $1000Bahts per adult. We did not expect to be greeted by warm, beautiful and lovely boys and girls upon our arrival. The oldest children introduced themselves to us, they interacted with us in English and orientated us around the farm.... More

Joy's House is a magical place. The rooms were clean, the food was great. It was off the beaten path, and a little rustic, but thats what you expect in Chiang Mai. We were able to do yoga in the mornings, tour around through the day, and they helped us arrange eco-tour activities such as elephants rides and hiking. We... More

This is probably one of the best stays I've ever had on my travels. I contacted Joy's House directly and spoke to Jarm, who helped to organise a yoga and massage program for me and my mother for a week. Transfers to/from Joys House was done without a hassle. We were upgraded to one of the newer rooms with a/c.... More

I came with expectation of a weekend doing nothing but yoga and massage; but left with a different perspective of how Joy's House combined good service and hospitality with none of the traps of a commercial holiday. The place is tucked off a busy highway; the serene surroundings make you forget the hustle and bustle of the city outside. The... More

Recommended by friends, we dared to booked 5 nights at Joy's house and weren't disappointed at all. The really good thing here : nothing is a problem and everything has a solution.

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.
