We decided to try Joy's House to experience an authentic Chiang Mai stay with exposure and opportunity to meet local folks. We were also intrigued that it was affiliated with the children's foundation in Chiang Mai, where underprivileged children growing up were trained in hospitality jobs. We were not disappointed. Joy's House was everything we expected and more. Everyone at the house was very hospitable. Thank you, Khun Doe, for arranging all our stay. Joy, it was nice to meet you, and thank-you for inviting us for cocktails at the Pizza Zap to meet some of the staff, and meeting your nephew Bae. We also had a great Thai cooking session with Joy's cousin Cham Pee. The accommodations were clean, comfortable, and spacious. The atmosphere was very relaxing and we felt at home around the guest house. The one day city tour and ride up the Ping river was enjoyable. The sampling of Thai message was also a nice experience. The three day tour to Chiang Rai & Mae Saelong was also very interesting, although the drive back from Chiang Saen (Golden Triangle) was a little too long. Perhaps it would have been better to shorten it to 2 days and cut out Mae Saelong. Even though we were outside of the Chiang Mai old city, it was convenient enough to catch a red taxi or to get a ride from the Guest House.…
We spent wonderfully relaxing days at Joy's House. A very pleasant and familiar atmosphere, furnished with great attention to detail - both the rooms and, above all, the entire complex. A place to relax and unwind. Delicious food. The massages are also recommended. On top of that we have a 3 day trekking, which was also a highlight of our stay. Definitely, we will come back...and we already looking forward to the cooking course, the Thai massage course or the in-house spa program? Kop-Kuhn Kah Joy House Family! Carola &Julia
We chose Joy‘s house because it is a children’s charity as well as a family business with a „green“ touch. We loved every minute of our one week stay. Food is excellent, tours were lovely and extra requests were met immediately. If we had one wish free: we would like to have a short presentation about the children’s shelter foundation for the guests, this would support the idea even more. All in all: what a great and relaxed experience. Chiang Mai is a very cultured area, very Thai!
I have been here a few times which none of those presented me with any kind of disappointment. Warm welcome from the owner’s family, local Northern Thai hospitality spirit and reasonable price for the accommodation. The scenery is beautiful with Lanna style decoration and the atmosphere is tranquil and relaxed, suitable for any kind of visit and all types of people. The food is home-cooked and very delicious with various choices of cocktails and other beverages. All in all, if anyone is looking for a good place to stay in Chiang Mai, put Joy’s House on your number one choice. Worth it!
Joy’s House is a very calm and peaceful place to stay. The staffs are very friendly and helpful. The tours and activities at Joy’s House is also wonderful! It is a really good place for couples and families.
