If you’re looking for the most romantic, private place in Chiang Mai, you found it! There’s 7 villas; however, they only rent out to one group at a time. Meaning if your only a couple, you'll have the entire resort to yourselves. It’s extremely secluded, and tranquil. The property was designed by architect Bill Bensley, which you'll quickly notice the attention to every detail possible. It’s about a 30 min drive from the airport, with a few shops for essentials in the area ( 7-11, pharmacy, fruit stands) about 2 minutes away. To do’s - waterfalls, elephants, bicycle tours, scenic area. The price is all inclusive, with all meals included by their onsite talented cook Jeri, which in its self is a thai culinary experience. They have a French Chef Alexandre Demard cook for French fine dinning chefs table experiences too,inquiry. The host Howie is very welcoming and accommodating with a wealth information about Chiang Mai and whose who. Best choice you can make, highly recommend!

It was 5 beautiful nights we spent at Howie's homestay. Truly a unique property with delicate architectural design and details. The site situated in an exceptional setting with view to Doi and surrounding by beautiful garden/ landscape. You will enjoy living in "Lanna" lifestyle among Howie's antique collections in each space. We received well hospitality from Howie and Jerri who cooks amazing food for our dinners including Northern specialty. It was a one of our trip after covid lockdown, we felt safe and the place is very high on hygiene. Great ideal place to travel to as you will enjoy so much of the privacy.

I consider myself extremely lucky to have visited Howie's Homestay right before travel became so difficult. My husband and two friends and I spent two weeks in Southeast Asia. Our time in Thailand was amazing but the stay with Howie and Jerri was the absolute highlight. Chiang Mai is an amazing city and Howie made sure that we made the most of our visit, focusing on the things we were most interested in (elephants! craft beer! shopping!) My favorite travel adventures have always been visiting friends abroad, and this was no exception. From the moment we booked, Howie was a friend who was so excited about our visit to Chiang Mai. And the property and the food rival any place we have stayed anywhere in the world. We travel quite a bit, and this experience was absolutely one-of-a-kind fabulous.

We spent 5 nights at Howie's and every part of our stay was truly exceptional. The food is just simply amazing in every way. Taste, presentation, variety and all authentic thai cooking. The accomodation is palatial and totaly private. They are truly proud of what they have created and endeavor to make your stay perfect. Howie is a wonderful host and source of local knowledge. He made great recommendations for local activities. We stay in lots of 5 star hotels but is was really great to such a great and unique experience.

I spent three days and nights at Howie's HomeStay with three friends. It was one of the most enjoyable, memorable and lovely experiences of my life. For starters, the large property is breathtakingly beautiful and designed by a world-renowned architect. Jerri's food is unreal -- as good as you find at the world's top restaurants. Howie is a superb host. I really enjoyed getting to know him, and he took great pains to ensure that all our needs were met during our stay. I can't say enough good things about this unique experience.
