About This Listing
This is a beautiful traditional Thai house that will provide you with a unique experience while staying in Chiangmai. It is for nature lovers who want to immerse themselves in peace and quiet while still being in a close proximity to the city (13km).
Our home is unique. Its Lanna style architecture is becoming a rarity to find and you will love our home if you want to wake up in the morning to the sound of the birds and fall asleep with the noises of the jungle. From our nearby temple you can hear the monks chanting at night while you are swinging yourself in the hammock until you fall asleep. If you like yoga you will have your own studio to practice or just sit quietly and take in the beautiful surroundings.
Our house is located in a lovely little Thai village just outside of Chiangmai where you can experience the ‘real Thai life’. It’s nice walking around the village as the sun is setting down and watch the evening village bustle go by.
For us our home is a sacred place which we love and nurture and we receive the same in return. We are happy to offer our home to you like minded people who will treat it with care and respect.
We come here to rest from our busy lives and to reconnect with nature. For this reason there is no TV in the house but you will have fast internet, a well equipped kitchen and hot water. We are offering our home to you but we are not running a resort so if you need the services that a hotel provides unfortunately this is something we cannot offer. You will need to take your own initiative to get your own food supplies and drinking water. You will also need to rely on your sense of direction to navigate around and yes you will need a motorbike or a car which we will help organize for you.
But please don’t panic! We will arrange your pick up and your transport. You will be shown around the house and explained where things are and how things works. You will be provided with detailed maps of Chiangmai and surrounding trips that you can take. Our lovely gardening lady looks after our kingdom on almost a daily basis and it can be arranged to have her clean the house during your stay, which she’ll be more than happy to do.
The house has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, a kitchen with a dining table, a yoga studio and lots of options to relax in the outdoor areas. It’s perfect for couples, families or small groups of friends who want to spend some quality time together. The space is soothing and will help your body and mind rest.
Our home is our Sanctuary and we hope you will enjoy it.
Note: Although we love to offer flexible check in/out please be aware that if someone is staying in the house on the day you are arriving or vice versa some one is arriving on the day you are leaving - the check in/out cannot be as flexible. If this is the case we will need to agree on a time which is fair to both parties. Thank you for your understanding. Also, these times may be slightly constrained
Please respect our home. This is a unique nature spot which will nurture you with love and care. Please give the same in return.You are surrounded by nature in its pure form and the occasional insect or small animal may come and visit. Please do not kill them unless you feel you are in danger. For your own safety do not walk in the garden barefoot at night.
Please feel free to smoke in the house outdoor spaces but refrain from smoking in the bedrooms.
There are many clean drinking water machines in the village - please use them instead of buying bottled water to safe the environment.
If your neighbors are around - please keep your noise down especially at night. At Lana Lagoon people come to listen to birds and
not to loud music.
Our gardening lady (called Pisai) comes in a few days in the week to look after the garden, please treat her with respect. She tends our house with great love and care and we couldn't manage it without her. We do pay her a monthly salary but if you were happy with your stay and appreciated her help, please feel free to give her a small tip before you depart.
This is is a wooden house please NEVER leave any kind of open flames unattended.
Finally we hope you will enjoy our home as much as we do.
This place is a beautiful spot and the perfect place to relax! Everything went smooth and everything was organized nicely. I would really recommend this to anyone who loves to be near nature but you're also 20 minutes away by scooter to Chiang Mai City if you're looking for a contrast to the rural life. Thank you Dita and Richard for this experience at your lovely house :)
Best place we've stayed in in Thailand! A house with all modern amenities but yet with a very traditional and authentic feel and very close to nature. Very nice bathroom with an outdoor feel and beautiful bedrooms. We slept with the windows open and enjoyed to be awaken by nature and watch the sunrise from our beds. Best of the whole house is the outdoor sitting space! I would strongly recommend to hire a car because there is so much to see in the surroundings and there are not that many alternatives. Chiang Mai is easy to reach from the house, indeed within an acceptable 20 minutes. Would have loved to stay longer! Dita is a great host, you can ask her anything!
Un peu compliqué pour se retrouver mais Dita nous a très bien accueilli chez elle et nous a donné des conseils judicieux. Le logement est exactement comme la description, beaucoup de charme, extrêmement (website hidden) distance de chiang mai n'est finalement pas un problème et puis il y a plein de visites intéressantes aux abords immédiat . Nous avons particulièrement apprécié le style thai traditionnel de la maison et la nature environnante. Merci Dita !
J'ai eu la chance de passer 3 semaine dans la merveilleuse maison de SARAPHI. Un très beau jardin près d'une petite rivière. Une maison en bois traditionnelle de style Lanna. Une immersion dans les bruits de la nature, merveilleux. Richard a été parfait. Il est venu me chercher m'a guidé et a répondu à toute mes demandes avec beaucoup de gentillesse. L'emplacement est à moins d'une demi-heure en scooter du centre historique de Chiang Mai. Une femme de ménage entretenait jardin et maison. Je recommande chaleureusement cette adresse. Merci à Richard et à Dita

Nous avons bien apprécié notre séjour à villa Cozy. Tout s'est bien déroulé. Nous avons aimé l'originalité et la beauté de cette maison en teck, son jardin et environnement. Elle est située dans une région belle, tranquile et privilégiée. Nous avons des moments très agréables et reposants.

About the Host, Dita
Originally from the Czech Republic but many countries have been my home over the last 14 years. The best 2 years of my life were living in a remote village in Nepal with no running water, no electricity and access road where we were building a school. Currently living in Bangkok and Chiangmai working as a Behavioral Analyst - my area of interest is children with challenging behaviour. In Thailand I train local psychologists and special education teachers in the field of behavioral analysis.
Happy spirit :)
