We lived in Chiangmai, Thailand. Visiting New York as a tourist,I myself use to be California residence for 27yrs. And have three daughters living in california,with 7 grandchildren.This will be our first trip to New york
We stayed with Guy and his family for seven nights with my wife and 2 kids (aged 10 and 13). Guy was amazing and his rental accomodation was top notch. I truly felt that I was at my home away from home. Guy was great at taking us around and consistently steered us in the right direction, whether it be to sign up for cooking classes, going sightseeing, or doing errands. I will be recommending staying with Guy and Aae to all my family and friends. I came with hopes of staying somewhere nice and left feeling part of a family.
Great place to stay. Spacious accommodation with lovely pool and outside sitting/dining/bbq area. Guy and Ae are perfect hosts and provided excellent breakfasts and transportation whenever needed. The accommodation was ideal for us and proved to be well situated for our visits to various golf courses and a 10-15 minute drive to the old city centre. Highly recommended.
Staying with Guy and Ae is the cornerstone of our superbly delightful trip to Chiangmai. Guy met us at the airport. The moment we arrived at this beautiful home, we already knew it was going to be a very pleasant stay.
Guy and Ae were very helpful, hospitable and charming. They were our hosts/local guides/friends ALL in one.
The place is very clean. The breakfast is very delicious. And neighborhood is very peaceful.
As an airbnb host myself, I truly respect the amount of time, work and thought Guy and Ae put into this. KUDOS to both!
Guy and Mae were really nice and caring hosts. Although the house is a bit outside from the city, they offered to bring and to pick us up...even at night. The had two very good mountain bike which served us well. The breakfast was plenty and delicious. The were supportive when we planned a tour and a cooking class. The sperate garden house and the pool are clean and comfortable.
We like to come any time again to this friendly place.
Staying with Guy and Ae was like a pleasant family visit. My parents who had arrived earlier had already written me an enthusiastic E-Mail and when I came without my luggage I could experience Guy’s helpfulness and generosity myself. He drove me repeatedly to the airport and to the Thai airways office, enquired himself in person with numerous airways officials (in Thai) and helped to locate my backpack (which had somehow lost its name tag) – without him I would never have got it back. Apart from that, Ae and he were ideal hosts and also we, as previous guests, enjoyed their great daily breakfast, and the trips with Guy to nice places we would have never have seen by ourselves. Moreover, the house is large, clean and cozy and, although we are not really dog-lovers, we even missed Blitz and Long, when we left. This is a great place to have real holidays in Chiang Mai. Thank you very much Guy and Ae!!!
We had a lovely stay with Guy and Ae. Our accommodations were spotlessly clean. Every morning, they served a delicious American style breakfast and excellent coffee. Guy drove us to a number of sites we wanted to visit and made recommendations about other things we should see. We particularly enjoyed sharing meals at Thai restuarants with Guy (and Ae, if she was available) because we would not have known the best dishes to order). All in all, our experience was excellent, and we look forward to staying at Guy and Ae's again.
My family and I can't begin to thank Guy and Aye enough for their hospitality, flexibility and taking such good care of us. We stayed at their home for more than a week.
The facilities: The cottage is lovely and felt quite palatial - two floors with plenty of room for my family of four. The pool was lovely and each morning Guy and Aye provided a lovely breakfast that kept us full most of the day. They provided a lot of nice touches that made traveling easier. They had plenty of water in the fridge and even stocked it with beer, sodas + chips that you could buy at cost. They had ample coffee/tea supplies as well.
Their house is a bit far from city center (15-30 min), so you'll need to either have a car, use taxis or the best option is actually hiring Guy to be your guide. He is fabulous, knows Chian(website hidden)ike the back of his hand and is willing to take you anywhere you want to go. His services are quite reasonably priced and make your life in Chiang Mai easier. The area is quiet and not much within walking distance.
The garden was quite peaceful and the TV/internet worked like a champ. If you are looking for party central, then this is not the place for you. (Though I am sure Guy could drive you there).
Guy and Aye are simply a special couple. They take being your host seriously and will do what they can to make sure you have a good time. Guy even helped to book some of our activities. For example, he spoke with the tour group I had contracted to make sure they knew where to drop us off. He also negotiated great prices for us for a day long cooking class. Aye was a lovely hostess, leaving sweet treats for the kids and taking us to Sunday Night Market. We had a ball shopping together and having Aye speak in Thai to ensure a "good" price was invaluable. Guy had a million funny stories and helped us come up with activities that they whole family could enjoy. Guy took us to several lovely local joints and took us to a few neighborhoods that were not found in guidebooks. We learned a lot about life in Thailand...exactly what were hoping for.
Overall, staying at Guy and Aye's home made us feel like we got to experience the real Chiang Mai through local eyes. Thank you Guy and Aye. Hope we get the chance to host you two in the US!
I stayed for 7 days in Guy and Aey's beautiful and comfortable house. As my original plan, my friend and I will be together spent 7 days holiday in Chiangmai. As some emergency happened at home, my friend had to get back home 4 days earlier and to leave me along, which made me quite nervous since I never been in Thailand. However, the amazing hosts, Guy and Aey, taking care of me so well, I enjoyed such a wonderful Chiangmai holiday. The House is very spacious, clean and comfy. All the pics show the real beauty of the spot. I have a great many of thanks for the always so-tasty brunch, which Guy and Aey prepared for us each morning in their house. I thought that I made the very best decision on my Chiangmai trip-staying in the beautiful house and very warm-hearted hosts. They just offer us more than I expected, although I read a lot from the previous reviews. You won't be disappointed for your decision if you stayed with Guy and Aey in Chian(website hidden)ast but not the least, I agree with one of the previous guest who left his comments that Airbnb should be grateful of having Guy and Aey, whose great house and hosting made the web's service reliable and trustable.
Amazing stay with Guy and Ae! The house is lovely, clean and comfortable, and the pool was so refreshing! I went with my husband and 2 of our friends and it worked out perfectly. Guy even acted as our tour guide for a reasonable fee, which is pretty much essential since the house is a bit tucked away from the downtown/old city. Thanks for showing us all the great food spots! Highly recommend.
So, let’s start by agreeing with all other reviewers that; Guy and Aey are outstanding hosts, their house is beautiful and comfortable with a large beautiful garden and they can’t do enough for their guests. I can go on endlessly about how wonderful, kind and considerate Guy and his wife are; and people who have been lucky enough to stay at their house would know all about that.
However for me, the most important observation is that AIRBNB should consider itself very fortunate to have Guy, as a host, on its books. If you want to know why you should consider AIRBNB registered accommodations, as alternatives to other types of holiday accommodation, then Guy, Aey and their house are perfect adverts.
It remains for me to thank Guy and Aey for looking after my family and I so brilliantly. And thank them for their never-diminishing patience, their kindness, and the delicious brunch!
For anyone who is thinking about visiting Chiangmai, there can only be one place to stay and you’re reading about it!
Great guests. Very engaging and conversational. Welcome any time.
