Chiang Mai Luxury Holiday Resort, Thailand

Howie’s HomeStay is a spectacular private Chiang Mai luxury holiday resort that has been featured in Architectural Digest and numerous other books and publications.

We have opened Howie’s HomeStay to guests so that they too may experience living in a the true paradise of a Chiang Mai resort.

Is it really a home stay? Well yes and no. It is actually your own private Chiang Mai holiday resort for you to enjoy. Here you are treated like friends and family.

We are in Chiang Mai Thailand, in the lush and beautiful Mae Sa Valley, Mae Rim, Northern Thailand, a popular location for some of the best Thailand resorts.

We are about 30 minutes from the international airport and main shopping areas of the city center.

We are located in a small Chiang Mai Thai village area, surrounded by only local villagers and water buffalo. This Chiang Mai resort is completely enclosed for privacy and is totally secure. It is probably one of the most private of all Thailand resorts.

Howie’s HomeStay is large and spread out over 5 acres of lushly landscaped grounds.

There are several pavilions, all built in Chiang Mai Thai style with each pavilion being a separate room of the residence.

There is The Teak Pavilion Suite. Other rooms are the Living Room, Dining Room/Kitchen which our guests have full access to.

We can also accommodate other friends, family or staff from your group with up to 3 additional rooms which are in our additional 3 bedroom Family Suite.

This makes us the perfect holiday resort. It is ideal for small, private groups and families traveling with staff or friends.
