Moo was an excellent host. We were massive pains and changed our plans and dates a million times and she was so flexible and accommodating. The tree house is really cute and super pretty but rather hot. The place itself is really lovely and the gym and outdoor areas are super nice. The grounds man is really sweet and super helpful too. We ended up changing our room to one of the brick houses and it was so beautiful. Lots of space but still with a cold shower. Viva Chiang Mai is quite a way out of town so it's best to hire a scooter to get in and out of town. There wasn't anyone else staying during our time but I reckon it would be super fun with more people around.
we really like the the tree house! it is located around 10-15 min drive from nimmanhaemin road/ city center, in a quiet neighborhood with some private houses surrounded. for people who look for something simple, who like to stay in treehouse-typed lush and quiet place, and also be able to explore the city conveniently - this is a great choice. this place has a big garden, and the lounge/club house area were nicely built with decent design aesthetics. the room is clean and nice, with a small balcony. it's falling asleep to the raucous sounds of crickets, tree frogs, and waking up to birdsong and the smell of trees.
note to travellers - as this place is quite hidden outside of city, taxi driver usually would not be able to find it. if you don't have a GPS map in hand, get the host on the phone to talk to the driver will work. we rent a scooter on the second day and it's actually pretty easy to find our way home.
Alors l'hôte nous a reçu, mais c'est tout!!!
Personne pour répondre a nos questions, des travaux dans la résidence a côté qui commencent a 8h du matin, pas de breakfast disponible, c'est a dire par de cuisine ni personnel pour ça! Juste des verres, de l'eau et du thé. Aucun prospectus sur les activités et bar alentours. Personne pour savoir si tout c'est bien passé et nous dire au revoir. Et ce n'est pas une cabane dans les arbres mais des arbres autour une cabane! Très loin de la ville et non 10 minutes comme l'hôte le dit, même les taxis ne trouvent pas. Comptez minimum 400 bahts.
10 stars for the treehouse
10 stars for the lovely host
And 10 stars for the neighborhood
We just loved it and can recommend it with 100%
What a great place! We stayed in the treehouse for a week (me, my husband and my 3-year-old son) and we just loved it. The whole place is clean and well mantained and the garden is enchanting! People can enjoy their breakfast in the morning (a cereal-toast-milk breakfast is served for 100 Baht, which is a good deal as breakfast at coffee shops/restaurants in town cost much more). The water in the bathroom is just a bit warm (not really hot), but that's good enough as in Thailand it's hot all year around (we were there in January so during the cool season and we were ok with that). If you have a driving license go and rent a motorbike (we did it), it will save money and time. Taxis and tuk-tuk are not on the way but Miss Duangporn can help with that. Gym, wi-fi, yoga space and info point are available. Want to escape the city but still not be too far from it? Are you a traveler more than a tourist? This is the right place.
the tree house as beauty as the picture and surround by the nature ,it was my first time visit Chiang Mai so I didnt know how far from the old city (The taxi rate "not tuk tuk or the red one for share " ) around $150 THB to the old city and around 15mins, but if you dont want spend money on taxi or dont know how to ride scooter then here may not your choice ,as here not like a hotel so no receptionist ; no restaurant inside it means no food you can order here ! if you want breakfast that you have to tell the gardener the day before and the breakfast is really basic , but sometime he works out so you may not able to reach him ,also he barely speak English so even though he wants to help that he couldnt but he is really nice and friendly guy !
so for my experienced that suggest you buy fruit for breakfast, then you can relax in the morning and go out for lunch and walking around the city .
You can do self-practice yoga and gym here as they provide the yoga mat and room , but not suggest ask them to arrange the teacher come over ,as more fun go to the yoga studio in town as there have many good studios like blue garden ; wild rose and yoga tree ... As here quite remote so not many taxi driver know the direction ,you must print the map and their number just in case they cannot find .
The treehouse was interesting. And the owner was very friendly and nice. Several points:
1.Great view and very natural environments. You can heard bugs a lot in the evening.
2.The room was in a great village. The citizens there was very nice.
3.There were many great local restaurants in the village which had delicious foods in it.
1.A bit far away from the City center. If you leave here, do rent a motobike. The taxi in the Airport didn't want to go here, and tuk-tuk in the city would ask high price to drive your here from downtown.
2.Ants. A bit lot ants.
3.The breakfast would cost you 100 Baht / person. I don't think it was cost-effective.
I liked staying here because it was very quiet, calm and with good taste. I was looking for "nature" and although it is truly very nice, I was a bit surprised to find that this is actually a property in a semi-urban part of town, so the view from the tree house's balcony is beautiful, just like in the pictures but on the other side, you have the neighbor just a few meters away - you don't feel in the countryside at all. Another thing is that there wasn't any yoga, or meditation, or cooking. It was more like, if you want to, you can do it, or the owner can arrange a class for you, but this is not a meditation retreat. A final consideration is that it is quite complicated to get to the city center of Chiang Mai. The best way is to just rent a scooter, which is 200-300 baht per day, so take it into account in your budget. If you don't, you'll pay about the same for taxis, but it is more complicated for them to agree to take you there and to find one when you are going out.
All in all, just knowing that you'll probably have to rent a scooter, and that it is truly peaceful, I really liked this place. My aim is just to help you manage your expectation compared to what the description says. I recommend it. I definitely preferred staying here than in one of the hotels in Chiang Mai city. It's much nicer, peaceful, quiet, clean.
