An amazing retreat outside of Chiang Mai. Bob picked us up at the airport. The accommodations were super. Rooms are beautifully decorated. It only cost 30 baht for the two of us to get to the center of Chiang Mai from the Teak House. There's a super restaurant close by where we ate dinner every night! Thanks, Bob, for a wonderful stay!
Yes - the house was comfortable. This was the second time we have stayed with Bob and it was a pleasure, as always.
Bob was a wonderful host and is a really nice person. He picked us up from the station when we arrived and dropped us off when we left. He arranged a tour for us, gave us loads of tips on getting around and was quick to solve any issues. The teak house was beautiful and clean and has been out favorite accommodation on our travels. It's a little bit away from the town centre but getting there and back is relatively easy and cheap. If you want somewhere quiet and private then this is the place for you. We also loved having his dogs around who made the place feel even more homey.
Wir hatten Bob´s Teakhouse für 4 Wochen gemietet und hatten hier eine sehr angenehme Zeit. Das Haus war für uns als kleine Familie (unsere Tochter war 1 Jahr) ausreichend groß und die Terrasse bot viel Platz zum Spielen und Verweilen. Die zahlreichen Hunde auf Bob´s Grundstück waren sehr lieb und begeisterten unser Kind. Bob ist ein sehr freundlicher und hilfsbereiter Gastgeber. Vielen Dank!
We had a fantastic time at Bob's place. He picked us up from the middle of the city during rush hour and provided us with maps and useful information. Throughout our stay, he frequently checked in with us and made himself available in person and over the phone. He even provided great bicycles for a day trip! We really appreciated his assistance and honesty.
The house is beautiful and comfortable. We loved the large porch and patio, and enjoyed cooking breakfast in the well-equipped and tidy outdoor kitchen. The bedroom and bathroom were cozy, clean, and comfortable. Bob regularly provided new clean sheets, toilet paper, and soap. The house was secure and the internet was speedy. We felt very much at home. Construction began each day at nine, but it didn't bother us and is scheduled to be completed soon.
Although the property was a bit further away from the city than we had expected, we enjoyed the yellow truck ride and loved the small, inexpensive restaurants up the street. Bob's dogs are lovely and friendly. We miss them! Some of the other neighborhood dogs are a bit scary but harmless. (One evening, Bob and his daughter went above and beyond, escorting us past a neighborhood dog who seemed intimidating.)
We stayed for ten days and wished we could have stayed longer. We wholeheartedly recommend Bob's place! There are multiple beautiful guesthouses on his property, so if one is full, just look for one of his different listings.
Bob could not have been a better host. The house was perfect - and only a 10 minute walk to our classes with Pichest! We loved it. It was quiet; the dogs were wonderfully friendly; anything we needed all we had to do was ask Bob! There was universal confusion about how late the yellow tsung-taeows ran - so some evenings we had to take a tuk-tuk (the grand expense was 300b or approximately $10). There is a nice western style grocery nearby, in addition to a normal market and lots of resturants. We also met some wonderful fellow-guests while we were there. There were lots of adventures to be had. Sadly, one of the other guests gave Bob a crappy review - and as is sometime the case they simply wanted to not take responsibility for their own wierdness. sad.
In any event, we look forward to returning to Bob's again when we return next year.
We had such a great time from beginning to end at Bob's place. Our guesthouse was beautiful and clean right in the trees just as pictured!
He told us how to get to the city center (a short and VERY inexpensive and fun ride) and we enjoyed taking it 5 times in our 2 days there.
He has some cute puppies that were always there to welcome us home which we loved! The house is walking distance to a 7/11 for all your personal needs and 2 minute walk from some great restaurant and a small market.
He gave us a map, told us how to get anywhere we needed and even setup a tour for us to go to the tiger kingdom and Doi Suthep. We had an amazing time and if we ever come back, definitely will look him up again! Stay with Bob!!!
