Interaction with Guests
The studio is set off of a large house (the house is occupied by the listing owner and his wonderful roommates) and is private and quiet. That being said there is a cafe' on site and this, along with the housemates, means that you can have as much or as little social interaction as you like.
Near Nimmanhaemin Road's hip nightlife, Chiang Mai University, Doi Suthep, lake Huay Tung Taew, Malin Plaza night market, Rin Kham night market, Chang Kian produce market, the beautiful ancient ruins of Wat Jed Yod, and endless opportunities to enjoy amazing street food and local culture in a real Thai neighborhood, just minutes away from the old city.
We are easily accessible but located just off of the main road, so you can sleep soundly in the absence of old-city street noise. Also, in Chiang Mai city you are always near “Red Trucks” and TukTuks that can take you where you want to go. That being said, there are several motorbike and bike rental shops nearby if you feel so inclined. Furthermore, we do have two bicycles and one motorbike available for rent, but they are often rented out so it is good not to count on this option. You may inquire about this when you contact us about a room.
Other Things to Note
We want to welcome you to Chiang Mai and make you feel at home in our beautiful little garden oasis in the city! Most people in the house, including the owner, are either Thai or have been in Thailand for quite some time. Thus, if there is something you would like to know about the city or its surrounding areas, then we would be happy to provide recommendations and answer any questions you have during your stay. Khun Bay, owner of the Cafe' on site, is a particularly good resource. Thus, ordering a coffee and chatting him up for a bit is recommended.

I really was happy in Chiangmai because of the your house. Especially i cant forget staffs. Bay and rin and other people were so kind. And your garden is so beautiful. Whenever i wake up early, i read a book in your cafe and garden. At that time, i feel peaceful and free. I really recommend this house. If i visit Chiangmai again, i ll stay in here again :)
Quedarnos en lo de Charles fue la mejor decisión que pudimos haber tomado. No me quedaría en ningún otro lugar en Chiang Mai. La ubicación era perfecta, entre el aeropuerto y el centro. Al centro se puede ir caminando. La habitación queda al fondo de un café orgánico que te sirve la mejor comida que he probado, super rica y saludable, un respiro después de tanta comida frita asiática, pero con sabores locales. Nos quedamos enamorados del lugar.
La habitación es exactamente como se ve en la foto, solo que mejor! Es muy espaciosa, nos sorprendió lo grande, y tiene baño en suite super comodo. Charles nos proporcionó todo para que nos sintamos cómodos, no necesitamos nada mas. Todos los que trabajan allí nos hicieron sentir super cómodos y bienvenidos.
Charles es el mejor anfitrión, es una persona muy generosa y amable, dispuesto a ayudarte con cualquier cosa que necesites, y a brindarte todo lo que haga falta, información, consejos, lo que sea. Es super atento!! Nos quedamos encantados, realmente conocer gente así mientras viajas es una de las razones por las cuales lo hacemos. Es una persona maravillosa!!
Estamos eternamente agradecidos por la hermosa estadía que tuvimos en lo de Charles. Realmente el que viaja a Chiang Mai, tiene que quedarse allí!!!!
Good location in Chingmai. Near to Chingmai University, to Nimaenroad, to the mountain. The place was quiet nice, clean and comfortable. Charles was very nice and helpful to my questions. Thanks
By the way the coffee was queit nice, It's worth to taste.
I would like to be there next time.
I never met Charles, but Meena greeted me, showed be around and was very friendly. It's really a beautiful place they've put together there with the cafe serving delicious organic food. Just a 3 minute walk from market!
We only stayed with Charles and Meena for one night when we first arrived in Chiang Mai. The place was very nice and clean.
Meena and Charles were really helpful with making phone calls for taxis and and even gave us a lift to the night markets which was over and above what we expected. We would definitely stay here again.
Thank you Charles and Meena!
