Everything you need
Review Submitted: 23 February 2010

This bungalow was spacious, and well equiped. Depending on where you come from will be how you judge this home. It was not luxurious by my standards, but having said that it was an excellent home with everything you could possibly need. On our trip, it was just my husband and myself who stayed, so the place was more than we needed in size. The location is excellent in that it is only 10 minutes from the middle of Chaing Mai, and close to all major tourist attractions.
I had to coerce my husband into visiting Thailand with the promise of a stop in Hong Kong on the way home. After the conclusion of the trip, he could not stop raving about Thailand, its people and the fun we had.
We did not go to the usual destinations in Thailand except for a 3 night stay in Bangkok. The rest of our trip was spent in Chaing Mai (we had friends who had also rented a home in the same private estate as us), and we coordinated our activities . Both of our homes came with a Van and driver, and also a maid. Wat our driver was fantastic, and very accomodating. He was punctual, and courteous, arriving every morning before the agreed time to get the van ready. He took us to some amazing places withing an hour of Chaing Mai, and there was not a moment of boredom in our trip. There is a pool and restaurant withing the private estate, and the prices were exceptional competitive. Shopping centres were 10 minutes away, and with a driver this made getting anything you wanted easy. We were collected from and dropped off to the airport by Wat.
Our maid service was excellent also, she would arrive either just before we went out or as we left each day, and was gone when we returned. The house was clean, and our laundry washed and ironed. I do not have this service at home, so was extremely grateful for the privilidge of being looked after.
I would highly recommend this place to stay, and we even had Julian to contact if we had and problems or queries. We will be returning to Thailand and Chaing Mai, and will be booking this house again.
Thanks to Julian and Wat, for the fantastic service and also to the lovely young lady who provided the maid service.
