Overall, the house we stayed in is in very good shape, clean, newly painted, and well maintained. It has good furnishings, fridge, TV, A/C, wifi, etc. basically it's complete. The shower room is big and the toilet is separate. The swimming pool is good and the water is warm. It's always available and Rae maintains it everyday.
The other houses or cabins surrounded by beautiful garden look very colorful, as well. There are many trees in the compound. Lots of birds and I saw some squirrels. This property is well secured, gated and fenced all around. Kinda make you feel safer.
The property is about 7 minutes walk to the main road where you can catch a bus. We never got lost specially when I used the GPS on my iphone. I got 2 GB data on a local sim carrier (for $15) and put it in my smartphone and we did not get lost in Bangkok!!! All bus numbers and routes can be determined via (website hidden) Map. It is so easy. If you don't want to walk, just ride on a taxi, and it's cheap too.
Other facilities we used are the laundry machine and the pool table. I even saw an aquaponic inside a green house which Charlie started, but he is currently away so that thing is not yet operational. I guess in the future, you would be able to harvest some fresh veggies for cooking or making salads.
In summary, this place is highly recommended.
The Jade House was a wonderful place for my husband, two young sons and I to stay for the nine days we were in Bangkok. Outside the hussle of central Bangkok, The Jade House provided my family with everything we needed. We had access to the kitchen, laundry, pool, pool table, and had a refrigerator in our room. The grounds were well maintained and there was a lovely garden dining area. Raewyn was a fantastic host, with lots of suggestions of things to do and always very friendly. We loved ordering home-cooked Thai dinners from her sister-in-law, delivered right to our room. We wholeheartedly recommend the Jade House
