Just stayed for a night, but the area doesn't seem the nicest to stay.
Close to the highway, without any charm and very noisy during the night.
The house was not exactly as clean and nice as it looks on the pictures and the towels and bed clothes were not the cleanliest one must expect. Some carpets are torn apart and the toilet is not clean at all.
Bob seems nice and even though he was sick he managed to have a friend picking me up at the bus station.
Bob was a great host, he picked us up from the train station and gave us some information and recommendations of Chiang Mai on the ride back. His place is cool and unique - there are 6 mini houses with a lot of privacy and in a safe location about 15 minutes from Chiang Mai. I recommend Bob's place to future guests.
Bob is good. Very Willing to help us when we are in trouble. If I have Another time to come to Chiangmai I
will choose here again.
We had a fantastic time at Bob's place. He picked us up from the middle of the city during rush hour and provided us with maps and useful information. Throughout our stay, he frequently checked in with us and made himself available in person and over the phone. He even provided great bicycles for a day trip! We really appreciated his assistance and honesty.
The house is beautiful and comfortable. We loved the large porch and patio, and enjoyed cooking breakfast in the well-equipped and tidy outdoor kitchen. The bedroom and bathroom were cozy, clean, and comfortable. Bob regularly provided new clean sheets, toilet paper, and soap. The house was secure and the internet was speedy. We felt very much at home. Construction began each day at nine, but it didn't bother us and is scheduled to be completed soon.
Although the property was a bit further away from the city than we had expected, we enjoyed the yellow truck ride and loved the small, inexpensive restaurants up the street. Bob's dogs are lovely and friendly. We miss them! Some of the other neighborhood dogs are a bit scary but harmless. (One evening, Bob and his daughter went above and beyond, escorting us past a neighborhood dog who seemed intimidating.)
We stayed for ten days and wished we could have stayed longer. We wholeheartedly recommend Bob's place! There are multiple beautiful guesthouses on his property, so if one is full, just look for one of his different listings.
Bob is an AWESOME host making you feel among friends since the first minute.
The house is cozy and you can ear morning birds among the small creek nearby which is very relaxing.
Even if is built quite simply, the house is very well decorated and is perfect for 1 night or few weeks considering the 2 floor space and the big kitchen area where I would love to make a barbecue next time.
Bob's dogs are extremely friendly and great holiday companions in the premises.
Bob is a vey warm and welcoming host. With extensive knowledge about the area, which leads to great advice on what to do next or maybe alter an already set schedule.
He was always available even for pickup, the house is clean, beautiful old wood, hot water just perfect for people travelling alone of with a partner. The place is huge surrounded by nothing but nature and the only sound is that of nature itself. The pictures do not do this great home justice with all the old dark wood it's difficult to show how big is actually is. 5weeks in Thailand, our best stay, house and host. Will be back next holiday. Thank you for your time! Everything shows passion in this place great vibe. Can't mention any cons. Vincent
Bob was a fantastic host. He is very knowledgeable and happy to help whenever possible. Being a fellow Canadian Bob is fluent in English which helped immensely when communicating tips and recommendations. We received a ride to and from the airport as well. The location of the place is roughly a 20 minute scooter ride into central Chiang Mai or you can take a yellow cab (20 baht). The location makes for a quiet stay away from the touristy square in Chian(website hidden)ocation wise there are affordable restaurants, 7 eleven and Thai bars in walking distance. Bob has multiple guest homes on his property, so if one is booked check his other listing. There are dogs on the property which was a bonus since we are huge dog lovers.
Bob was absolutely amazing, and the space is simply magic. The teak furniture, the sweet dogs, the sounds of the jungle right outside - it's a remarkable place (all of his properties are!). It's right around the block from a great morning coffee place, but tucked away in a beautiful corner so you always feel safe. Hopping the yellow truck into the town is easy and fun, maybe a 15 minute ride. I would insist that any friend of mine going to Chiang Mai stay at Bob's. He was so pleasant to work with, helpful, and knowledgeable about everything we wanted to do. Strongly, strongly recommended.
Bob could not have been a better host. The house was perfect - and only a 10 minute walk to our classes with Pichest! We loved it. It was quiet; the dogs were wonderfully friendly; anything we needed all we had to do was ask Bob! There was universal confusion about how late the yellow tsung-taeows ran - so some evenings we had to take a tuk-tuk (the grand expense was 300b or approximately $10). There is a nice western style grocery nearby, in addition to a normal market and lots of resturants. We also met some wonderful fellow-guests while we were there. There were lots of adventures to be had. Sadly, one of the other guests gave Bob a crappy review - and as is sometime the case they simply wanted to not take responsibility for their own wierdness. sad.
In any event, we look forward to returning to Bob's again when we return next year.
I WANT to say that Bob is so warm -harted and would be glad to pick us up at airport . He also will tell you the routine of old city or any where you want to go. unfortunately we got lost, but we called Bob and he helped us a lot. Because he didn't at home , he let his pretty daughter to show me the way, and we talked together for a while, and i think Bob is not only a kind people but also a nice father.
Besides, the house is teak house with traditional decoration，actually it is quite far to go to old city but if you rent a motorcycles(about 200B ) THAT would be more convenient and you can experience the real native lifestyle and he has seven dogs, which are sometimes cute sometimes not, lol~ but they can look after the house and keep it safe. thanks Bob, we hope that we could stay longer but we have limited time, if it possible that I will come to live there for longer time ~
Bob 真的超级贴心 就算语言不是很通 但他会慢慢的给你讲解 迷路的时候他一直打过来电话帮你引路 你比较晚回去 他也会很关心的打电话给你 主动接送机 方便很多 就是他比较忙 然后没有机会跟他多聊一点
