This was our favorite place we stayed on our honeymoon trip to Thailand! Pops and Ian were excellent hosts. They offered great advice on what to do. The property is beautiful and a wonderful place to relax!
Ian and Pop made our stay completely memorable. The grounds are impeccably kept and are exquisite! They go out of their way to do everything you require of them, from getting laundry done to getting a scooter, to even getting your breakfast made for you every morning. In the end we became great friends. We hope we get to see them again sometime sooner than later. Highly recommend!
This place is amazing. Nice comfy bungalows, beautifully designed with a very nice and refreshing pool.
The bungalow site is based close to Mae Rim. Very quite. You need to have a motorcycle or bikes to get around.
Pop and Ian (hosts) are brilliant. We have been given fantastic insight on what to do and what is worth discovering. They offer a great trip to Mae Ngat Dam which I highly recommend.
Our time at Another Villa in Paradise was too short, Our host was very welcoming and we cannot wait to go back, the bungalow was very comfortable and the gecko's and birds are such a delight!!
Perfect spot to relax, you need transport as its a good 30 mins out of Chiang Mai, a great base to stay and do day trips!!
We stayed with Ian and Pop for four nights and absolutely loved our time there. The villa we stayed in was just perfect - a very comfortable and beautiful teak villa surrounded by windows and a wrap-around deck.
Each morning we awoke to birds chirping and to the views of the gorgeous grounds they have so meticulously cultivated.
The highlight of our stay was as much the accommodation as it was getting to know Ian and Pop who are so warm and friendly. They treated us like friends rather than patrons and they went out of their way to ensure we had a wonderful time visiting Chiang Mai.
We can't wait for them to come visit us in NYC so we can show them the same warm hospitality.

About the Host, Ian
Hi my name is Ian, I am a retired English teacher with homes in both Scotland and Thailand.
We really enjoy having Airbnb guests staying with us. So far they have all been great and have really appreciated our small, exclusive resort in the countryside just outside Chiang Mai.
I think what most guests like are the personal touches that we provide. We can help them find the best places to visit, often off the regular tourist trail. Also, we know all the best places to eat, whether it be Thai food or western cuisine. And sometimes a visit will coincide with a party or celebration which they are usually welcome to join, so they get to meet some of the locals, both Thai and ex-pats.
We speak both English and Thai, and can get by in French, so it is usually easy to fix anything for our guests, whether it be massage or spa treatment; medical issues; or trips, car hire or onward travel. We have very good links with the local community.
The most common response we get is that guests wish they'd booked for a longer stay!
Update: we now offer cooking classes onsite which avoid a journey to town and which are specifically catered to meet your particular preferences.
Massage is also now available onsite.
