There is also bottled water in the fridge for drinking. Please DO NOT throw away the empty bottles. Please return your empty bottles and take more from the stock at the bottom of the steps.

There are two laundry machines in our parking lot. They are usually powered off, so you'll need to turn them on first. When standing in front of the machines, look up. There is a power switch to turn on the machines. Both machines take 2 (10baht) coins. Everything is automatic, please don't push any buttons. They will go for three cycles on cold water and take about 1 hr. There is washing powder behind the machine. For drying, there is a drying area in the back of the building.

My husband and I had an amazing stay in Chiang Mai. Ketsuda's husband Stephen was an absolutely amazing host, very kind, friendly and helpful - one of the best we've had. We would definitely recommend staying here!! Stephen rented us a bike, booked tours for us and gave useful information for our stay in Chiang Mai. Apartment as described (perhaps nicer than the pictures). Thank you for your hospitality :)

This place is super clean and super convenient to walk anywhere around the old city. You can see Stephen and King constantly cleaning and making the place more comfortable. They have taken the time to put love and care into this place. Stephen was very helpful with recommendations about places to go and where and how to find good prices. You can tell they both truly care about the traveler's well being while in this wonderful city! I'd definitively recommend this place to stay, specially if you are a woman traveling alone!

This place is very clean and and the hosts were quick to respond to any requests. Well located inside the old city, not more than a 10 minute walk to the Sunday market. Great place for the value!

I had a great stay with Ketsuda and Stephen. The free water bottles are super helpful, and it was great that they were able to book trips for me too. Location is great, right in the Old City and if you don't mind a bit of walking you can get anywhere on foot. Thanks again!

The appartment was great for us, we stayed only two night. We didnt see Ketsuda but she was very quick to answer any question by mail and everythig went fine. Some temples are very close and absolutely beautiful to see. A bit far from the railway and bus station though, but quite place and nice environment. Drinking water is provided, which is really nice, thank you for that ! Some things to notice though: - the air conditioning and the fan make too much noise to sleep well at night. - I forgot some clothes in the cupboard, and unfortunately I have never been able to get them back, they apparently disappeared. Ketsuda is not responsible for this but a cleaner might be, it's a shame because I really loved these clothes and I am disappointed it was lost like this - though I am responsible for forgetting it at first ... !

Nice clean place, generally well kept and quiet. Some issues with toiletries and toilet water since they're not very clean.

we had a great time staying at ketsudas place! for 2 days we explored the old town of chiang mai on foot (you can reach everything inside the wall quite easily) and there are also several bars and restaurants in walking distance! later we decided to explore the mountains and countryside so we rented some motorscooters from ketsuda and steve - which was totally stress-free (like all communication with them :) - they replied to all our emails nearly instantly and were always helpfull and forthcoming!

Hi, I'm Ketsuda, but most people simply call me by my nickname, King. I am a born and raised Chiang Mai(-ian) married to an American ex-pat.

Our goal is to give you a running head start from the moment you arrive in Chiang Mai. First and foremost, we are English speakers, making your transition to South-East Asia as easy as possible.

We do our best to convey our local knowledge to new arrivals. From the best local eateries, where to get freshest fruits/veggies, places that cater to specific diets, different schools for Massage/Yoga, how to get around our city like a local, to setting up tours/drivers at non-tourist prices.
The list goes on....

All units include STABLE, HIGH-SPEED WiFi, Cable TV, AirCon, working desk, Western style toilet, among other basics all travelers would appreciate.
***except " City Center-The Thai Experience” (Thai toilet, no aircon)***

CMStay currently has two locations:

CMStay @Baan Ouikum is inside the Old City walls and moat. Close to the Sunday market and the tourist center, but far enough to be outside of the noise.

CMStay @Sethee Court is near the Saturday night market, Old Medicine Hospital, and SVG massage center. This location is close to the Old City, but set inside a local Thai neighborhood.

We like to believe that we are great hosts, we are multi-lingual and have a strong knowledge base of Chiang Mai which can help with the nuances of traveling in a new country. We're always looking forward to meeting new people and maybe even being able to help a newbie find their way around. Most of all, we are always willing to try and help. If you have any questions/needs we are always happy to help!
