A relaxing guesthouse with swimming pool a little bit out of the center of Chiang Mai. Very calm and a nice garden. A warm welcome and a great hospitality! Breakfast is plentiful en varied. A real gem!

We enjoyed very much our stay as a family with two little kids at Joy's House. All of the staff and kids treated us as part of a big family. No wish wasn't impossible. Very friendly. We also appreciated breakfast and diner which was made and served by the kids. Nice pool area, good massage. House very lovely decorated. All... More

Joy's house was excellent. The staff were very friendly and the whole place was an experience. The open air breakfast room is lovely. There is a free mini bus service into Chang Mai twice daily and this takes about 15 minutes each way and it is great for seeing the sites and the night markets. Joy' s house has a... More

Our family was traveling to Thailand for the first time and Joy's house came recommended by a local family. We had a great time! They had terrific breakfast outside every morning…the pool was nice and fun and they helped us get drivers when we wanted to do an excursion. They also provided day trips themselves. This is a lovely family... More

I can't say enough good things about Joy's House. The guest house itself is lovely with big, comfortable rooms, lots of open spaces, a nice pool, and an overall environment that is warm and welcoming. The staff, many of whom were residents at the shelter, are terrific. They are smart, mature, helpful, and have excellent command of English. They served... More

A fantastic place with a real sense of family. The accommodation is very comfortable, and the youth who run it make you feel very welcome. By staying here, you can know you are putting some good back in the world.

This accommodation is one in a million. As a single mum travelling with just her 3 year old daughter, this was a very daunting trip. However at Joy's house we were made to feel completely at home, one of the family. We stayed for 1 week but could have stayed much much longer. The food was amazing, staff wonderful and... More

Joys House is accomadation that stays with you. The staff, Childrens Foundation and animals are all incredible. You really feel like your apart of something so special it's very hard to leave. Do yourself a favour and experience this special Guesthouse we loved every minute of our 8 nights at Joy's House.

All of the 5 star reviews are completely deserved. Though it's a little out of the way, Joy's House is a total gem. Joy's daughter Neap takes such outstanding care of her guests. The only drawback was we arrived just at the start of the rainy season, so there were some mosquitos, but Neap and her staff were attentive and... More

We were meant to head to Chiang Rai but were too exhausted after travelling for a month. We decided to get out of the busy part of the city and stay a night at Joy's House. If our last night in Chiang Mai was refundable, we would have stayed for two nights for sure! Joy's House was exactly what we... More
