Interaction with guests
We are usually around to help with anything we can to make your stay enjoyable from 7am until 7pm each day.
Tepin Baan Lek is situated in what in Thailand is referred to as a "Moo Baan" or a village. Westerners would liken it to a housing estate. It is within "The Oriental" which offers the benefit of 24 hour security including CCTV on the roads.
The Oriental is off a main route into Chiang Mai and the airport. There are red car taxi vans and tuk tuks that patrol this route and many more at the nearby Promenada Resort Mall.
Other things to note
There are 2 chalets at Tepin Baan Lek, creatively called 1 and 2 so it is possible the facilities may be shared between 2 parties.
We know some of you value privacy above all else so we do offer a "no other party" rate option as well as a “have it all” rate for larger parties. Please add this to your booking enquiry if you would like it.
We have 2 little dogs. When they first meet you they will usually bark a bit. Once they have got to know you they may get very nosey. We always tell guests not to let them into your chalets but few take notice...
Smoking is allowed in the grounds but not inside the buildings. The pool and grounds are available 24 hours a day but we ask that noise levels are kept low after midnight. There is no lifeguard on duty so pool safety is your own responsibility.
Please note "TiT", This is Thailand, services including water, power and internet are usually good BUT not always. Sorry we can't be held responsible for service interruptions.
Cancel up to 24 hours before your trip and get a full refund, including service fees.

Born in the USA (as the song goes) English father, Irish mum. Raised in Lancashire. An Englishman living in Thailand with a great Thai wife who runs Baan Lek and a couple of (happy if perhaps yapping a bit) little dogs.
Chiang Mai is an easy going place which suits us fine.
