We are world travellers currently based in Chiang Mai. Active in social work on small humanitarian projects in this region.
Our stay at the cottage was pleasant and very peaceful. It is located outside the center of town in a quiet shady gated community. Hester and Teun where very helpful and oriented us to the area. The place is a little out of the way and requires some kind of transportation. With the help of some bicycles we borrowed, we were able to get around pretty well. We would bike to Canal Road (outer ring road) and park it in a secure parking lot with a guard and from there hail a red bus to get to the center of town.
After a day in this bustling city, it was nice to get back to the peaceful cottage.
You can rent a scooter for 150 Baht/day,which probably would be your best option for transportation.
The place was comfortable if you don't mind simple living. We felt very safe and enjoyed reading books in this peaceful cottage.
Thanks Hester and Teun.
We had a wonderful stay at this place- Hester and Taun were fantastic hosts and a great source of info... The neighbors are friendly and the bamboo forest gives the experience a very authentic feel.
Hester's place was wonderful and very spacious. We felt right at home. It had all the little necessities (oil, spices etc.) in the kitchen making it very easy to cook our own meals. The stairs were a little steep, but manageable. My friend and i really enjoyed our time at Hester's place.
Great place! The organic supermarket around the corner and the café just across the street made every morning perfect.
Lovely apartment - in a great part of Amsterdam. Super easy to get to - 5 minute walk from the metro stop, which is about a 4 minute metro ride from Centraal Station.
We didn't get to meet Hester - but a friend, San, welcomed us who was lovely, and told us everything we needed to know.
The apartment has a gas heater which keeps the place warm, even in December! Good kitchen and dining room. We even had friends round - big enough to cook and entertain a few friends.
Highly recommend it!
Todo muy bien
Great house, nice people and a peaceful setting away from all the noise.
Easy check in, great up and coming location and close to supermarkets and a great little cafe. The apartment was clean and well organised and made our stay in Amsterdam perfect
