Richards' place exceeded expectations by far; safe, super clean, spacious, comfortable, amazing bed and linnen, pillow is soft and comfy, fully stocked kitchen with all the appliances and gadgets that one would have at home. All the shelves are full of tea, coffee and a whole array of spices, sauces and whatever one would need to get going in the kitchen. My wife and I loved the outside area where we spent many evenings listening to the night sounds or music. We loved the small town atmosphere, the small market, sound of locals busy with there chores in the evenings. The house has high end fittings like the toilets and good functional ac's. Two large and comfy bedrooms. We enjoyed cycling through the rice fields. This is not a place prepared for tourists with low quality towels, hard bed and a few token appliances and gadgets in the kitchen and bedrooms, it is basically a liveable and fully functional home where you can step in, relax and enjoy from the word go. It is a bit out of town but not far from anything at all. It was exactly what we were looking for and we will not think twice to stay there again. Kunchaya stays on the property and although she was always available, we only saw her when we parked our car or when we needed some advice with our planning. Chiangrai is spread over a large geographical area and there are so many things to do and see in and around the city that it is better to rather stay outside of the city center. Much easier then to negotiate your way in and out of the city. I can go on and on but we can conclude with giving Richard and Kunchaya a 10 out of 10 for every aspect of our stay.

This airbnb is a gem! While I never met the host, Richard, in person, the lady staying on site was more than accommodating with all of our needs. They picked us up from the bus stop and provided a feee ride to town every day, which we appreciated greatly. The place is far bigger and more spacious that what we expected - plenty of space! Located in a quiet area not far from the main part of town. We also rented the motorbike they had available for several days. Very reasonable price, and it's a newer and better bike than most of the other rental companies have to offer. Clean, spacious, quiet, and quaint - we loved it and would have extended our stay if possible!

We had a wonderful time, it was everything we needed and a whole lot more! The photos really don't do it justice. The house is huge and it really is a home from home with everything you need. Kunchaya is a wonderful hostess, and now friend. She will tell you the best places for food, markets whatever you want. She will offer you a ride into town but if you want to make your own way taxis are incredibly cheap here. We really could not have wished for anything more.

This place is great!! Our host was just wonderful and went out of the way to drive us places, provide advice and information, make sure the house was cleaned regularly and that our laundry was taken care of perfectly. It was so nice to stay in a place where we felt totally welcome from the first day until the last (we stayed for a month). We actually felt that we were part of a family but with just the right amount of privacy. When we left, we hugged and cried—it was sad to say goodbye and, in addition to a great place to stay, we felt we had truly made friends. The listing doesn’t do justice to the home. With really good ACs in both bedrooms, the entire house can be kept really cool even in the hottest of times. The kitchen is a real room and well stocked with nice pots and pans and the frig is huge. The house is big and roomy and the furniture is quite comfortable. The neighborhood is quiet and pleasant and not touristy at all. The local markets, morning and evening, are within a short walk of the home and are great places to buy fresh fruit, vegetables, meat and fish. As with a lot of Thai markets, there is an abundance of prepared foods as well. There are also several restaurants within walking distance. If we wanted to go to town, our host would either drive us or arrange an inexpensive taxi. I would not hesitate to wholehearted recommend this place to my friends and I am sure we will return.

Alles war perfekt vorbereitet, Kunjaya hat uns empfangen, sie war eine sehr hilfsbereite Gastgeberin. Das Apartment ist über 135 m² groß und verfügt über 2 Schlafzimmer mit richtigen europäischen Betten mit hohem Liegekomfort, viel besser als die sonst lokal üblichen Betten. Die Beschreibung entspricht den Gegebenheiten. Man braucht für die Mobilität ein Auto. Die unmittelbare Nachbarschaft ist rustikal, durchaus ein akustisches und olfaktorisches Erlebnis. Wir erlebten sowohl extrem kalte wie extrem heiße Tage. Schade, dass das größere Schlafzimmer keine Aircon hat. Die vorhandene Aircon im zweiten Schlafzimmer ist extrem leise und effizient.Die Küche ist perfekt, der Samsung Kühlschrank super. Insgesamt ist das Preisleistungsverhältnis sehr gut für den gebotenen Komfort. Das Internet ist brauchbar, der Empfang für mobile Daten von True oder 1 2 call AIS ist perfekt. Wir haben uns wohlgefühlt und kommen gerne wieder.
