Staying at Howie's was like staying with an 'old-Chiang Mai hand' who brings friends together for a wonderful, private and serene experience at his home. Howie's Homestay is simply the most beautiful luxury home in Chiang Mai and probably anywhere we have seen. His wife Jerri serves beautifully presented authentic local cuisine bursting with flavor and we will both be... More

Howie's homestay is what every 5 star resort should be. It was absolutely epic. The property has been designed and built to absolute perfection. Breathtaking views, unreal hospitality. Howie has created a venue that I will be traveling back to for years to come. His knowledge of the area and activities is second to none. The food was equally perfect,... More

Howie’s Homestay sits in the dense tropical Mae Rim Valley of Chiang Mai. This luxurious privately owned villa, surrounded by a lush Eden-like garden is the perfect hideaway for discreet travellers who doesn't want to be bothered with the hustle and bustle of a commercial luxe hotel. In a well-connected world, it is harder and harder to find resorts or... More

I work at a luxury hotel and stay here with my girlfriend and two other girls. Trust me, they are crazy and lazy (Howie, you know who I am now). We do travel a lot and I don't usually comment hotels since most of them just provide standard service which means I just get what I pay for. In Howie's... More

I have been a guest at Howie's Home Stay four times and it just keeps getting better! My family has joined me including the kids as well as I have visited with just myself and wife.

We went with our 2 kids. They had a wonderful time as we had the whole place to ourselves. They loved exploring around and enjoyed a delicious food prepared by Howie 's wife Jerry who knew how to make my kids entertained. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. If you want privacy and fun good food this the place!!

The place was flawless, had a very interesting and a kind of antique Asian style. The architecture was so precise it was hard to spot somethings we didn't like. The climate is amazing as well, it wasn't humid and was always cool. When it gets hot the giant pool with the controlled temperature was there and kept us from heat,... More

Howie knows Chiangmai. He will remind you of that fact often. And once you look around, you will quickly realize, you don’t know Chiangmai. Howie’s local knowledge and relationships with outside vendors is unsurpassed. He has a professional experienced guide (Addy, who is excellent, speaks English, super kind) and driver (a must to navigate the insane driving conditions) to accompany... More

We stayed at Howie's Homestay as part of our honeymoon as we were looking for an experience that was different than a typical hotel. We definitely found it! Howie was the ultimate host, and was instrumental to our trip as a whole. He provided lots of invaluable advice based on his knowledge from living in Thailand (Howie knows all!), which... More
