The 45 minute drive up from the airport was an easy straight road and we more more than pleased when we arrived, Peter has done a good job of building an amazing modern villa in the most amazing surroundings.
The scenery is spectacular even from the back veranda complete with BBQ where we spent all our nights, the villa has hot water all round no aircons as you don't need them just a fan at bedtime and really nice mattresses for a great nights sleep. Theres tv (limited mainly to Thai tv) and wifi which is very good.
Days out you can zipline just further up the road about ten minutes drive and theres a small town there with shops and restaurants, Chiang Rai is a 2.5 hour beautiful drive away and close by are hot springs and an elephant farm also have a look in Tharn Lodge just down the road for some nice photographs.
We would highly recommend this for a small group of friends ( theres two bedrooms, bathrooms with extra double mattress) it was great spending the nights on the veranda with a few drinks and BBQ and listening to the stream below.
The couple who look after the villa are really freindly and will do anything to help even do your laundry for you.
One tip though is to buy all your groceries in the city theres a Big C on the way out where you can buy all food and drink.
We just wish we stayed here longer. Peter has made his modern cottage so homely and the location feels like a jungle hideaway. All the facilities and amenities we needed for a family of 5. Local villages just lovely (especially the delightful Mae Kampong). If you have transport then you can easily self-cater (we enjoyed this) or eat locally. Great coffee shops nearby too. But try not to leave the house too much! Sitting on the balcony is such a treat.
Thanks Peter and family for sharing your piece of paradise and taking such care to make our stay enjoyable.
We loved this property, and exploring the surroundings we were all surprised at how beautiful and untouched this area is, considering how close it was to Chiang Mai city.
Excellent deck for barbecuing and stargazing, fully functional kitchen, comfortable beds and great hot showers. The design of the house with floor to ceiling windows allow for such a grand feeling of natural light and greenery, perfect for our city getaway. The owner was very accommodating of our needs and the on site groundskeeper was friendly and readily available when needed.
