Reviewed November 24, 2013

Great views, cute room, nice family-run place. And for $5/night, a great bargain. recommend renting a bike to get to/from town if you are a bit lazy like me :)

If definitely stay here again, but maybe upgrade to have a private bathroom. Shared ones were if e though.

If you like peace and quiet then this is your place. Def nothing for flashpackers but for this price you can't expect too much. We stayed in the Superior Bungalow with own bathroom. It's not the nicest we have seen and unfortunately we had cockroaches in the bathroom. Bungalow is located in the quieter area, walkable distance to the walking streets of Pai. Beds are a little bit too hard for europeans :)
Wifi is working very well.

We stayed in a basic bamboo bungalow for 3 nights. The bungalows are really nice and very cosy. Mosquito nets are provided. Our bed was super comfy!

The bungalows are set around a nice pond, with hammocks and benches to relax. At the rear of the property there's great views looking out over the rice paddies and mountains.

The owner and his family are very friendly and can offer great advice when needed.

If you're looking for a quiet place within walking distance of the town centre, this is it!!

Nice, quiet bungalows set in a lovely garden, only 10 min walk from town.

Selection of bamboo bungalows with private (350B) or shared bathroom (250B) and bigger, concrete huts with bathroom (500B) looking out onto the nearby rice paddies.

We stayed in one of the bamboo huts which was basic but clean. It had a comfortable bed with a mosquito net, a fan (which we didn't really need at night anyway as it was cool) and a window looking out on the mountains and rice paddies. It had a western toilet with state of the art bucket flush method :).

As the walls are quite thin, there was a small degree of noise coming in at night time possibly from a bar located on the way but it wasn't bad enough to prevent us from sleeping.

We also spent one night in the concrete bungalow which was bigger and newer than the bamboo one but it had the same amenities- only here the western toilet had a flush.

Wi-fi worked well around the property. Coffee/ tea making facilities were available too (10B per cup).

The owners were lovely and helpful. They gave us useful tips about what to see around Pai and how to get there.

Lovely little gem. The bungalows are adorable. Very clean, towels and bottled water supplied which was great. Bathrooms are shared but were always clean. Walkable distance to town. Surrounded by gardens so its a nice view. Only thing we thought free transfers were provided, so after arriving at the bus office they called to get the owner to come collect us, so we thought great saves us hassle. Asked if they coukd drop us off the following day to the bus station all fine. But on checking out we were told they were 50baht each way. Not alot but when thinking it was free was a bit of a shock! Overall lovely place.

We stayed at Rainbowhouse for 3 days and had a really good experience with it. We are traveling low-budget and payed only 4 EUR a night. We had a little bungalow with a double bed, private toilet complimentary water and a fan. The owner showed us all the places to go on a map when we checked in and was very friendly over the whole stay. So if you are a low budget traveler, go for Rainbowhouse!!!

The bungalows offered are a great value, clean and in a good location for those who like peace and quiet. Very scenic views and friendly owners. Garden is good for relaxing and you can do walks from there. There is a swimming pool nearby. We stayed in a budget bungalow with fan, net and shared bathroom for 200bht. The matress was a little hard but we managed to sleep fairly well and forgot all about it once we walked into truly scenic views. Wifi working well
