Beautiful, Luxury Vacation Rental with Free Car and Driver + daily Maid Servi
About Diana Shelton
Hello , Our name is Diana and Stuart Shelton. We both live in the Seattle, Washington area . We both retired in 2017 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 Villa in 2014
Why Diana Shelton chose Hang Dong
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. Plus we have our own private swimming pool. 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 community facilities.
What makes this Villa unique
We have the best driver, Wat, to assist you in getting you to the various attractions that you would like to see while visiting in Chiang Mai. Our driver, Wat will be on call to you for a total of 15 hours each day. If you hired a private driver with a car in Chiang Mai for 8 hours, it would cost you $100 for only the 8 hours. All trips that are within a 75 mile (120 Km) radius of Chiang Mai are included in the price. Extra fees apply to White Temple/Chiang Rai. Wat, our driver 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!

Maid, Driver and Pool - This is the life!
Our family of 5 had a wonderful stay. There was plenty of room and the beds were comfortable. We enjoyed the pool every day. The maid did the dishes and laundry every day. Having clean, pressed laundry really made us feel pampered and on vacation. Wat was a good driver and made it easy to explore Chaing Mai. The villa is about 25-30 minutes from the downtown area, but I think the trade-off is worth it to get the pool, maid and driver. Highly recommend.
A home away from home...bliss!
What a treat. This property is definitely a home away from home. Equipped with everything you need. We were a family of 6 with 4 adults and 2 teens and this property was great. The pool and pool area are lovely and were well used during our stay.
Wan & Duen looked after us well and Wan was never more than a few minutes away when we called him. I'd done a lot of research before we went to Chiang Mai as to where we wanted to go and this was a big help as I could just run it past Wan the night before and he was then able to give us guidelines as to timings. His driving felt incredibly safe even in the middle of a tropical storm we felt like we were in good hands (not something you can say about many drivers in Thailand). During the storm when the whole area lost power Wan ensured we had torches that worked and was great at looking after us. It was also really nice to see how much he cared about the house...unfortunately it did sustain some damage but he was onto getting things fixed very quickly.
The house is about 30 min out of town but with Wan to drive you everywhere it's not a problem. There are restaurants & grocery stores about 10-15 minutes away. Being on this side of town is actually beneficial for some of the sites you may want to see.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this home and would definitely return if we were to go back to Chiang Mai.
Amazing home with an amazing pool
Our family had an amazing time staying at this home! The home is excellent for a family. Wat was very helpful and kind and took us to many places in and around Chiang Mai! Duen kept the home so clean!
The pool and yard was gorgeous. The gated community is nice.
Diana was very helpful and responded quickly to any questions!
Highly recommend this place for families staying in Chiang Mai.
Can't beat it!
House and entire property were clean and very nice. Kitchen well stocked, although we didn't use it much due to too much street food in Chiang Mai. The maid was nice and kept the place very clean. She also did a bunch of laundry- all folded and perfect a few hours after she got it!
But the absolute highlight is Wat, the driver. He's a great aid in getting to and around the city, and anywhere else you want to go. He was sooo helpful and nice. An absolute 5 star rating, plus.
This is definitely the way to go when visiting Chang mai.
We thoroughly enjoyed our ten day stay in Chang mai,thanks to this beautiful rental property and the maid and chauffeur it afforded us. If you are coming to Chang mai do not hesitate to stay here. We enjoyed all that Chang mai has to offer, but after all the; wonders, foods, and hectic life of the city we were able to retire for rest and relaxation to this lovely property. The maid ( Duen) kept the place spotlessly clean and our clothes freshly washed and pressed. Wat the driver was always early and took us to wherever we wanted to go, he was a safe and conscientious driver.
The kitchen and whole house were well appointed and the pool and deck were; comfortable,clean, and refreshing.
This is truly the way to go.
And thank you so much for the excellent review. We hope that you will return again someday. Wat and Duen spoke very highly of you. We wish you an excellent Holiday Season, a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Absolutely Beautiful Home and Fantastic Stay!
Diana and Stuarts beautiful home in Chiang Mai is as stated and photographed as experienced. This was a wonderful retreat for our two week stay in Chiang Mai. The house is spotless, the house keeper, Duen keeps the home immaculate. An extra perk was the laundry service, each day our laundry was laundered and ironed ~ completely spoiled with this! Diana and Stuart also provide you with a car and driver for your time in their home. Wat took us everywhere, he was attentive, kind and knowledgeable about every place of interest in Chiang Mai. Again, an added perk to our trip that made us feel like royalty. We came to love the staff as they concerned themselves with making our holiday just perfect!
The property is very well kept, gardening was regularly attended to and also the daily upkeep of the pool. We enjoyed the option of a swim although it was so hot during the time we were there we quickly found ourselves relaxing inside if we were not on an excursion. The home simply felt like home.
Diana was attentive to our email dialogue and available when we needed her, as owners they are uniquely invested in your holiday and want only the best experience for their guests staying in their home.
Our 14 day stay was not long enough, we would choose this home again if we ever head back to Chiang Mai ~ a city worth traveling too, a home worth staying in.
Thank you Diana, Stuart, Wat and Duen!
