Where do I begin... I have only spent a week here at Joys House and wish I had much longer, the staff are exceptionally helpful and friendly and make you feel like part of the family - Neab would often join me at meal times and one evening myself and two other guests enjoyed a few card games and some...

We stayed 4 nights at Joy's House & loved it. Close enough to the central markets, and they have excellent relationships with other great things to do- we took a mountain tour through the national park, went to an elephant sanctuary, etc. We even spent one day cooking for the Children's Shelter Foundation, which is down the road from the...

An absolute oasis of hospitality; the minute the gate opens at Joy's House you are in a little secluded den of hospitality. Joy's has an incredibly impressive staff who will make sure you are getting the best Thailand has to offer. We stayed in room 1 or the "King Room" which is very large with a super comfortable bed. We...

My husband and I chose to stay at Joy's House because of previous reviews and we are so glad we did. From the minute we were greeted at the airport we felt like part of the Joy's House family. Situated about 15min drive from the centre of Chiang Mai it is a beautiful quiet sanctuary especially if you have spent...

Joy's house welcomed us with open arms. We were very impressed by the staff, had a nice air conditioned room and it was all very clean. They were very helpful picking us up from the airport and then dropping us to the train station when we departed (both free of charge!). We used the pool area once, there are 8...

Perfect place to relax and chill out while visiting the sites of Chiang Mai. Only 10 mins in taxi to centre but much nicer to stay somewhere with space that offers peace and quiet. Wonderful service, great food, massages and yoga easily booked - warm and friendly atmosphere. Highly recommended.

This is a must stay if you visit Chiang Mai! The setting is serene and beautiful, rooms are lovely and beds comfy. The staff are amazing, kind and gracious....it felt like a family to us for the two weeks were we're there. Take advantage of their tour packages and cooking classes. The courtyard, is wonderful to sit and socialize with...

We had an excellent time at Joy's house. The staff are all so friendly and very helpful. We had our choice of bikes to ride or hang out by the pool in our free time, they have massages available and she is a very good therapist. The food was great and we did a few tours through them, they have...

I was looking for a relaxed accommodation which was near attractions but with a feeling of calm and peace. After reading other reviews I decided on Joy's House and it exceeded my expectations in every way. The staff are friendly and helpful, no request is too much trouble. I had a developed a cold while on holiday and they were...

We stayed here as a base both for discovering Chiang Mai and for chilling out. Joy's House is perfect for both these options. Don't be put off by the location, about 20 minutes outside the Old City; it's an added bonus to be able to come back and relax amid the green, shaded gardens after exploring the city. The staff...
