Christophe is an amazing host and couldn't have ask for a more perfect person to welcome me to Thailand. His valuable suggestions and all around calm yet cool vibe was so great coming into a city knowing absolutely nothing about it. If I needed a good restaurant, a fun activity for the day, a cool place to have fun at night, Christophe always had the right suggestion. He was adamant about making sure I knew where I was and that I was comfortable. I got to do a private yoga session with him which I value significantly as it helped me form the foundations to begin my own practice. His home was heavenly; clean with a great interior design and the outdoor area was to die for. I highly recommend this place as I know I will most definitely be staying there when I return.

Chris was super detailed and prompt in his responses and answers to my questions and requests. He offered to pick me up from the airport. The house was in a very cozy neighbourhood which was 5 minutes walk away from the main road and quiet enough to feel like miles away from the city. The house itself was in superb condition and very well done up. Chris renovated everything himself and added very tasteful touches and details to make the place feel really special. The kitchen was well equipped, the hot water was more than sufficient, and the house was generally cooler than outside. It was winter, and tempuratures dropped to the early teens, so by the morning, the house was colder! Other than that, everything was perfect. Chris was the perfect host, ensuring that every detail was taken care of and we knew where to go and how to get there. He even suggested to us a monthly winter feast on a farm, which was foodie heaven and incredibly special!

This was truly one of my nicest AirBnB experiences.. Christophe is a great host! I was taken care as well as you would expect it from a 5 star hotel.. I was lucky enough and he had time to pick me up, he settled me in, in my beautiful room, showed me around town and made my short stay worth while.. The whole house and garden were super tidy (even more pretty then in the pictures) and the bed felt nice and fresh, he provided thick white towels and drink.. absolutely no complaint! But the cherry on top, I was able to book a private yoga lesson with him, as he is a dedicated yoga teacher and has his own little studio at home. I would recommend that to anyone beginner or yogi - super fun! Do yourself a favor and book a stay at the Yoga Oasis*

It was such a pleasure to stay at Christophe's beautiful home! I especially enjoyed the yoga room (def do yoga in morning/night) you'll feel great! It's a big house with a really nice TV also. Big back yard and good room size. Christophe was a pleasure to work with and also supplies me with a phone which was very helpful. There's a maid that comes once per week - and there's a washing machine outside. Really happy with this stay. Thanks Christophe! (PS - he has some cool books on yoga for reading as well!)

Christophe's house is delightful and peaceful. Three of us stayed there for a week, and found the house had plenty of space and was very well equipped with everything you could need especially in the kitchen, which had coffee makers, spices, wine glasses, lots of pots etc - you can tell Christophe loves to cook! The locale is away from the hustle and bustle of the city yet easily reachable - and the back garden was a lovely spot to hang out with a glass of wine. The location is about 10 minutes by tuk tuk or scooter from the historical center of Chiang Mai and we found this very convenient as well as more peaceful than being right in the center. For transport, we sometimes used Christophe's scooter that he loaned us and at other times we easily hailed a tuk tuk or red taxi vans from the hotel just around the corner. Emily made sure we had some cards for the hotel and this made it very easy when catching a taxi back home too - great idea and very thoughtful. Emily did an amazing job of meeting us at the airport and then briefing us on arrival - not just about the house but with all kinds of ideas on what to do in and around town. The most complete and thoughtful briefing we've had at any air bnb rental! It got our trip off to a great start. She was also available to us for questions throughout out stay. We were pleased to find that Christophe has a fresh drinking water delivery service to the house which made things very easy (no need to lug bottled water home from the supermarket since you definitely shouldn't drink the tap water in Thailand). One tip: around Chiang Mai there are so many things to do that it's worth a longer stay - cooking school, meditation class, yoga, waterfalls, elephant parks, museums and temples galore. We stayed a week and wished it could have been longer, both because of the hospitality of Chiang Mai but also because of the Chritophe's peaceful and enjoyable home - would definetly recommend!

Christophe picked us up from the airport in Chiang Mai (on time) in his scooter with a sidecar and was instantly friendly and helpful. On the short ride back to his house, and later that evening on our way out on the town, he took the opportunity to orient us to the major landmarks of the neighborhood to help us get our bearings. Once we arrived at his place (more on that in a moment), he welcomed us with homemade lemonade and a great map and guidebook of Chiang Mai. His house is an oasis--think Zen interior decorating magazine--clean, airy, and in general, a really peaceful place to rest your head in between adventures in and around the city. There is a full kitchen and two bathrooms, which made being there with four adults feel easy. There's also outdoor patio, in addition to the living room, meaning you can hang out in public space with others or on your own, as you choose. There’s also a yoga room, which Christophe offered to us as long as he wasn’t teaching a private lesson. We rented Christophe’s extra scooter for the week we were there, which was a bit scary at first (traffic in Chiang Mai is busy) but really was the best way to see the city. Two helmets were included. We hung out with Christophe and his friends (several of whom were former Air B&B guests) a couple of nights and did our own thing a couple of nights. Bottom line: Christophe’s place is the perfect choice for guests who: value a peaceful, pretty place to rest their heads; like exploring but also enjoy suggestions and recommendations from a local; and enjoy a mix of time alone and time socializing with new friends. This spot is clean, safe, and convenient and comes with the perk of a great host. Overall, highly recommended!

Staying at Christophe’s worked very well. I was there for 18 days and the room and house worked well for what I needed it for—a work retreat and base for some simple touristing. Christophe met me at the airport—greatly appreciated by me! —in his famous motor scooter with sidecar. He lives quite near the airport, which is handy. Once at his house, he gave me a phone to use and a map of Chiang Mai! This is something I do with my guests, so it really impressed me. He is a wealth of information about the city—best places to go for meals, places with lots of trees, shopping areas, Buddhist temples, Thai massage, etc.—and is part of a community of high quality healing practitioners and expats. He even had a motor scooter I could rent to get around. It took a couple of days to get used to driving on the left side of the road and the flow of traffic that is governed more by intuition than traffic rules! The house was very clean and comfortable. There was some construction going on next door during the day and a couple of evenings I was serenaded by a chorus of frogs—I had never heard anything quite like it before! However, all that became part of the Chiang Mai experience. I highly recommend Christophe’s for those who value a home atmosphere, pleasant surroundings and “going the extra mile” service that Christophe offers.
