Tepin "Baan Lek 1" is one of only 2 poolside chalets where we strive to provide a most enjoyable holiday experience. Out of the city it offers a relaxed environment from where to explore this fantastic area of Thailand or just sit back and relax in and around the pool.

The space

Tepin Baan Lek 1 is a purpose built chalet situated right by the salt-water pool. Barn Lek has a double bed and is air conditioned. Hot and (nearly) cold shower and western toilet. WiFi is available throughout the property.
Baan Lek is for 1 or 2 people but if your party is bigger we have a further air conditioned chalet Baan Lek 2.
Attached is the communal kitchen and laundry facilities whilst around the pool there are areas for sunbathing, eating and drinking.
Situated some 6km from the centre of Chiang Mai Baan Lek 1 offer a peaceful base to relax and an excellent starting point for the many attractions this part of Thailand has to offer.
You are welcome to both bring your own food and drink or purchase available food and drink from us. You are also welcome to use the washing machine (with your own detergent) or we offer a laundry service.
We can organise transport into town, tours or facilitate car and motorcycle rental with reliable partners. Advise on itineraries or plan full trips especially useful for first time visitors. Whatever you want to do we are confident a stay at Baan Lek will help you enjoy your holiday.
We can offer a pick up service from the airport, railway and bus stations on request. This is complimentary to guests staying for a week or more.

Guest access

Guests of Baan Lek 1 and 2 have access to:-
Swimming pool and poolside furniture.
Kitchen hob/microwave/crockery/cutlery etc.
Washing machine.

Interaction with guests

We are usually around to help with anything we can to make your stay enjoyable from 7am until 7pm each day.

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...

We stayed for three nights With Alan and his wife Pin. A really lovely couple who made us feel very welcome. A clean room with a proper bathroom. A nice swimmingpool, and we could use the kitchen. Alan was very willing to tell us about all the ins and outs of Chiang Mai and Pai. We would really recommend you to stay a few nights at Alans and Pins!!

Thank you Alan and Pin! Our trip would not have been the experience it was if not for your kind assistance and advice. Starting with friendly greetings at the airport and transport home, to the transport back to the airport, you really feel like you are living in Chiang Mai rather than just visiting. The accommodations were clean, comfortable and family friendly. If we had chosen to, we could have easily come and gone on our own but we really enjoyed sitting with Alan, Pin, Moohan and Satang and chatting by the pool each morning. Due to Alan's efforts, we were able to add drift carting and elephant poopoo paper park to our itinerary - both of which were lots of fun. Alan also lent us a cell phone which was a big help for calling him when we were out and needed assistance. Pin was able to help us with laundry as we were out most of the day, and arranged an in-house massage for my mother while the rest of us went a wandering. There was access to cold water, drinks and other snacks at all times, as well an easy walk to food stalls down the road, where my son saw someone ride their elephant down the road. Alan also helped us arrange other transport and activities prior to and during our trip. I feel as if Alan and Pin are old friends now and I hope to stay with them again in the future. I forgot to mention, Alan also provided us with a cd as we left with photos that he took when he accompanied us on activities - Great keepsake to add to our photos. There is still lots to experience in Chiang Mai!

Wonderful modern room detached from the main house inside a gated community with 24 hour security. Pictures are accurate, and the facilities are very clean and modern. Air con, hot shower, television, wifi, fridge in room and a great little pool right outside your door. Your hosts, Alan (U.K.) and his wife Pin (native Thai) are great. Very welcoming and knowledgable in all things Chiang Mai and Thailand. After the booking, Alan stayed in touch via email and SMS and picked me up at the train station. Also, he was more than willing to show me around the city. "Barn Lek" which, as I understand it, means; 'little house' in Thai, is not in the city center, by any means, but if you want, like I did, a low pressure transition into Thailand, it's perfect. With as overwhelmingly chaotic as the city center can be, it was great to have a place that felt very safe and secure and quiet. Chiang Mai has several public transportation options, and it certainly is possible to get; 'into the action' and back, in a relatively economical fashion. All in all I'd recommend highly, and would certainly stay there again myself without hesitation. Plus, their two little doggies are a laugh and a half.

Thank you Tony for your kind words, much appreciated. The doggies will miss you greatly.

Thank you Wolfgang for your review. It was really nice to meet you and Sabine. Of course it was not just Pin and I that enjoyed your company. Moohan and Satang were so happy when you were here. With luck you will come back to Chiang Mai and we can meet again. Many thanks for staying with us.

Alan et Pin sont des hôtes formidables. Alan est venu nous chercher a 4 heures du matin a la gare de Chiang mai et est toujours disponible en cas de besoin tout en restant discret. La chambre et la piscine sont très propre et ce trouve a 10 minute en motobike du centre ville. Vous pouvez y aller les yeux fermés. Arnaud et Anahi.

Dopo il caos di Bangkok nulla di meglio che Tepin "Baan Lek" a Chiang Mai! Un oasi di pace nel verde e nell' accogliente villa di Alan e Pin. Una stanza accogliente per noi e nostra figlia e una magnifica piscina! La gentilezza e disponibilitá dei propretari sono unici. Ci hanno fornito ogni genere di informazioni e ci hanno aiutato ad organizzare interessanti tour "su misura " secondo le nostre richieste e esigenze. In piu Alan ci ha accompagnato alla fabbrica degli ombrelli di carta dove abbiamo potuto ammirare la grazia nella costruzione di questi magnifici oggetti. Tepin " Baan Lek" è il luogo perfetto per esplorare i dintorni o per visitare il centro della cittá distante 10 minuti con il taxi. Consiglio vivamente questa tappa a Chiang mai e ringrazio ancora Alan e Pin per l'accoglienza. Torneremo!

Allan est super aimable, il nous a fait un tour de ville pour mieux s'orienter , nous a aidé pour la location d'un scooter, a gardé nos bagages lors d'une escapade de quatre nuits dans le nord et nous a même rapporter le tout lors de notre départ pour l'aéroport. L'endroit est tranquille, bien situé si vous avez un scooter et très sécuritaire. L'accès à la laveuse, cuisine, piscine et stationnement est un plus. Sans compter notre petit snack qui nous attendais après un long voyage! Nous recommandons grandement cet endroit loin du vacarme de la ville. Merci à Allan et sa femme.

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.
