The Space

ZAK House Luxury Skysuite

Our apartment - lovingly named ZAK House 2 - is known to be the the most modern condominium in Chiang Mai.

With Big C Extra just 3 mins walk from the condo, it doesn't get anymore convenient to shop for grocery, dine at restaurants or food court, run banking errands (with no fewer than 3 banks), get a haircut, browse at the bookshop, shop for snacks, anything! It's also a place where you can easily hop onto a "Red Bus" that will take you to the city centre for about 120baht.

Surrounding our condo are streets where life moves at a languid pace. It's what I love most about living in Chiang Mai. Here, the hawkers of the roadside stalls are also friends to their customers - lots of smiling and free sampling of food. No English is spoken here, you will have to get by with hand gestures. I guarantee that you will cherish the sometimes funny memories of your communication methods with the locals.

The best time to explore the streets is morning. You will see the parents riding with 2, 3 or more kids on their motorbikes to school. Walk past temples and hear children chanting scriptures. Have breakfast like the locals, sitting at makeshift tables along the road and watch the villagers go about their business. Get lost in the maze of streets and then ask for directions, you will be amazed at how helpful the villagers are.

Every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night, the night market (only 2 mins walk away!) which comes alive from 5pm is the favourite hang out of the locals. You will hardly find any tourist here. Here, you get a real experience of Chiang Mai's culture and the locals' warmth hospitality; taste Northern Thailand's various mouth watering delicacies. (See pictures) Unlike the more commercial Night Bazaar and Sunday Market, there is no need for bargaining here because their prices are guaranteed to be the lowest.

Getting around is very convenient. We are located very near to Super Highway which pretty much links up the major sights of Chiang Mai. Going up north on the Super Highway brings you quickly to the famous Doi Suthep, Chiang Mai University, Chiang Mai Zoo, the vibrant Nimman Road, Kad Suan Kaew Shopping Mall, the Inner City (aka Walled City); traveling by bicycle or the mini red bus brings you to River Bin in 10 mins, Walled City in 15 mins; Chiang Mai Bus Station is 1km away, the railway station is 1.5km away, the airport is a quick 15-min drive away.

  • On my arrival day, I have not met Gideon, but could interact with all his people. Khun Tangmoo is very helpful, whom I contacted the whole time for my need during my stay. I like the apartment very much. It is nice decorated, and the spacious of the room makes the family with 2 children like us relax. (I normally don't like 4 of us squeezed in the small hotel room) The children can sleep in the (small) 2nd bedroom in the apartment. (I guess the room is for something else, but being modified to be used as children bedroom) They like it even though it is small. The living room is nicely decorated and big with nice kitchen and dining area, which is great for us. So the children can watch movie and play game. Even though the apartment is a little bit out of town, but we still can use the service of the car from the apartment.
    And Thank you very much for refunding the booking money to me, from the other booking of mine.
    One thing, I think Gideon should have a look is the showering area in the bathroom. The shower head in the shower area is loose and not well attached to the wall. And the water in this floor is quite light, not strong enough for me to shampoo my hair. I hope U can find the way to fix it. Then your apartment will be really perfect.

  • The staff of Zak Residence (jigsaw condominium) makes your whole stay so warm and cosy. Team work and eager to please mentality of the team truly makes your stay so comfortable. This place is run like a hotel with love. The star of the gang is definitely Xiao Nai Nai (Lek) the resident chef of Zak Cafe. Her delicious yet affordable food was well received by us. In fact we ate at least 1 meal a day there during our 9 days stay. She beats the "trip advisor" restaurant hands down. Friendly Gideon and his team of managers Dream, Tangmo and Nan ensures that your apartment is up to standard and transportation to all your destinations are taken care of. Much cheaper than local tuk tuk. Miew (daughter of Xiao nai nai) is ever so friendly. Koi, Tee, Airk and Bai Touy are helpful in ensuring guests reach their destination. overall we are pleased with our stay. We will definitely stay again during our next visit in November.

  • My stay at Gideon's condo was very nice, from being picked up at the train station by the specialized taxi service offered to being dropped off at the airport. His assistant is always available and very friendly and kind. Thank you Dream for all your guidance and help. The condo is very comfortable and exactly as it looks in the pictures. My only disappointments about the condo was that the mattress was beyond super firm, also the living area is quite warm throughout the day from all the marvelous sunshine. Fortunately, we spent most of our days touring the attractions.
    I would definitely recommend Gideon and his staff. Very professional and attentive. Special thank you to our almost personal driver "T", he was beyond patient and always smiling and pleasant.
    We even took advantage of the laundry services offered, and everything was clean and pressed for us.

  • It was nice one month stay. Gideon is very communicative and helpfull.
    Condo is nice:
    1) Big, new, design, etc
    2) Pool, sauna, fitness

    A bit far from center, you should rent car\motorbike for comfort (anyway in Thailand motorbike is a must).

    There is one big minus - construction just in front. When construction ends it will be great place.

  • The apartment is in great condition, very clean and cozy. Gideon and his brother Wilson are greats hosts - from the airport pick up to answering all our needs and questions. It's right next to the Big C Market, which is very convenient. However the apartment itself is a bit far from the city downtown and the cost of transportation by tuk tuk or taxi does add up.

    Overall I will definitely recommend this apartment.
