About the property

Beautiful, Luxury Vacation Rental with Free Car and Driver + daily Maid Servi


Our beautiful vacation villa with private swimming pool is situated in a gated community with lush green tropical surroundings located just outside of Chiang Mai, Thailand. Our villa is approximately 20 to 25 minutes from the city center of Chiang Mai. The gated community is called Home in Park.

The rental comes with a Toyota Avanza and a chauffeur. Wat, our driver can drive you to most of your northern Thailand destinations. Our driver's hours are 8AM to 11PM. These hours are included in the rental price. You will need to hire a taxi if you need to be away from the villa between the hours of 11:00 PM and 8:00 AM. If you have more than 4 in your group and would like to reserve a van, so that you can stretch out for long drives, please let me know ahead of time so I can have our driver, Wat reserve it for you. The price of a van is 2000 baht per day which is $56 per day extra, if needed.

If there are too many guests, that the luggage cannot fit into the car, you will be responsible to pay for a taxi to drive you to the house and back to the airport when you leave. The cost will be approximately 600 baht each way. Please make sure that someone rides in the taxi with the luggage for your protection.

You will be given a cell phone for your use during your stay. If you need to purchase more time, you can do so by going to any 7-11 and hand them your cell phone and tell them how many baht that you wish to spend. To check the amount of remaining minutes, press #123#.

Also included in the rental price, is daily maid service, except Sundays and all Thai Holidays. Duen, our maid will take care of the house cleaning and all of your laundry and ironing needs. So all you have to do is sit back, relax and enjoy your stay.

Everything is included in the price except adding minutes to your cell phone and the cost of gasoline that you use during your entire stay, including the final fill up of gasoline which occurs on your way to the airport. Tips are greatly appreciated by both driver and maid. Much of their pay is based on tips so they strive to provide you with excellent service.

The house has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, There are 2 TVs in our house with over 140 channels for your viewing pleasure. One TV is in the living room area and the other one is located in the master bedroom. We also have an office area with free high speed Internet, a dining room, a full kitchen with stove and oven. The kitchen is very well stocked with many pans and cooking utensils. However, due to liability issues, we cannot supply any spices (including salt and pepper) or oil. So please either bring them with you or have Wat stop at a grocery store so that you can purchase what you need for your stay.

We have air conditioning throughout the house-living room/dining room area, kitchen, and all three bedrooms. Please close all doors-both upstairs and downstairs when using the air conditioners. This will help keep the electrical costs down so we can continue to keep our rental rates down. Also all air conditioning must be turned off, each time that you leave the house. Thank you so much for your time and consideration!

We have a beautiful sun room which is your entrance out to the private swimming pool. There is outdoor furniture and a gas Bar B Que for your poolside relaxation time.

Sorry, but there is to be NO SMOKING anywhere inside our vacation villa. If anyone smokes in your group, then they can smoke outside by the pool only. Thank you for your cooperation!

Our check in time is anytime after 3:00 PM and our checkout time is on or before 12:00 noon. A later check out of 1 to 8 extra hours (until 8:00 PM) is available only if we do not have guests checking in on the same day that you check out. There is a late check out fee of 200 baht for each hour that you stay past 12:00 noon. That fee must be paid directly to our driver, Wat before you depart to the airport. We know you will enjoy your stay here in our vacation villa in Chiang Mai!

Thank You!

About Diana Shelton

Hello ,

Our name is Diana and Stuart Shelton. We both live in the Seattle, Washington area . We have just both retired from the Boeing Company in Everett Washington. We are excited about coming back to visit in Thailand and also now have the time to enjoy other travel locations.

Diana Shelton purchased this house in 2014

Why Diana Shelton chose North Thailand

This property is great! It's quiet, peaceful and the surroundings are very lush, green and tropical. It also has 24/7 security and is away from the noise and hussle and bustle of the city. There is also a tennis court, a large Balinese style, swimming pool, and a work out area just down the street. A fee of 60 baht must be paid at the office for each time that you use these facilities.

What makes this house unique

We have the best driver, Wat, to assist you in getting you to the various attractions that you will like to see while visiting in Chiang Mai. He is very patient and always willing to help you. A cell phone will be provided for you to use during your stay at our vacation villa. It will come with minutes already on it but you can purchase additional minutes at any 7-11 store. Our daily maid service is outstanding! All of your laundry and cleaning will be given the utmost attention. The private swimming pool is a also great asset for those who wish to swim without being crowded in a public pool. Enjoy!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our short but awesome stay in Chiang Mai was incredible! Before we arrived we asked lots of questions and Diana was always prompt and thorough with her responses. Thanks to her awesome advice we were able to fit lots of site seeing and great restaurants all within our 2 day stay. Wat, the driver, was extremely helpful, patient and accommodating with all of our requests. The house was always clean and well kept when we arrived home, and we even managed to cook a family dinner on our last night (the kitchen is fully equipped with everything you can possibly think of). We will definitely be staying here again, hopefully for a longer stay in Chiang Mai next time!

Beatiful property, would come back again!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Diana and Stewart. It was our pleasure meeting both of you! Wish we would have met you guys sooner, there was still so much we would have loved to hear more about Chiang Mai and Thailand in general. My parents, brother and I had a wonderful stay. It was a very beautiful property, very nice and quiet. Not walking distance to anything, but still very convenient due to the driver Watt taking us anywhere we wanted to go. Maid was wonderful as well, we never had to worry about laundry. Diana was very quick to reply to any questions or messages we had. She was very accommodating in whatever you needed. Would book with them again.

One of our best stays ever!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Diana for making our stay so easy!

From the moment we arrived in Chiang Mai, we knew we found someplace special!

Wat the driver was at the airport to pick us up and he managed to get all our luggage and the 5 of us in the car! He has the patience of a saint! He was there to take us to all the amazing places in and around Chiang Mai.

Everyday we came home To a sparkling clean house! Plus Duen the housekeeper had all of our laundry done. She is an amazing and a very kind person!

We were a family of 5, our son and wife with our adult granddaughter. This house worked perfect! The pool was a hit! It was a perfect place to cool off.

This is an upscale house in a very upscale neighborhood. You won't be disappointed.

Thank you again Diana for taking care of everything!!

We will be back

We stayed at this property for four nights in April 2016. As promised the driver was already waiting for us at the airport when we arrived. My husband and I and our three kids +2 big suitcases fit in the car. The drive was about 20 minutes to the house. The complex is quiet and beautifully maintained and has security at the front. The house was immaculate. The maid even did our laundry for us daily. It was very nice considering we only packed a suitcase for 7 days and had still 7 days left in Phuket. There's air-conditioning in each bedroom and in the kitchen area. The kitchen has everything that you might need for cooking a full meal. The Big C supermarket is only a 10 minute drive away from the property and the driver had no problems driving back-and-forth. We had planned our own activities for the day, and the driver got up really early to drop off or pick us up very late in the evening. The maid and driver were very nice. The swimming pool is a good size to entertain a family of five, and there were even some water toys there already. Water was clean and maintained daily. The Owner was very accommodating answering all our questions and even send us a stuffy that was left behind by one of our daughters all the way back to Canada.

Nice Little Cozy Three Bedroom Villa

  • 5 of 5

Nice, peaceful and well maintained three bed room villa in upscale part of Hang Dong section of Chiang Mai. Owner has equipped and maintained the property with latest equipment's and appliances. With the exception of actual cooking every thing is taken care of for you. Driver and maid are empowered employees who promptly take care of all your needs; cleaning, ironing, washing, etc. Wife got spoiled in short time.

Hang Dong has two nice golf courses, one of them well lighted 18 hole for night time Tee off. Ran into two nice guys from Tasminia and we palyed three time in two weeks. The Caddie crew is all femle and they are all well trained fun little charming ladies. Driver dropped me off for 4 hours of 18 holes and took wife for patty cure, manicure and massage.

We had prepaid for 14 days of stay, but due to conflict in train and flight schedules out of Chaing Mai we could only stay for 13 days. The owners promptly gave us one day credit without our asking. Smart business lady, I guess!

Thank you so much Diana & Stuart for allowing us to stay in your beautiful house. Everything was perfect! Duen is amazing!!! We all wanted to bring her home :) Wat, thank you so much for all you do.

Wonderful home with everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 1 week (3 adults and 3 young children). There was plenty of space for us and all of our things.

The villa is extremely well equipped- they had everything we could need.

The pool was perfect and the children were in and out of it many times a day.

The driver and maid provided a first class service.

The house is in brilliant and spotlessly clean condition.

The villa is on a quiet gated estate, about a 25 minute in to the old town (not a problem at all as we have the driver)

Thanks for a great stay!
