We are residents of Thailand and trying to find hidden gems in-country to stay at for our vacations. Our favourite place we’ve found recently is Howie’s Homestay. Magical, exclusive, lush, and easy to get to. The hostess Pii Jerri cooked up the best Thai food you’ll ever have. Her partner Howie will ensure any other needs or questions you have are answered. Their team of people look after all the details. The superlative gardens and design of the property will keep you in wonder. We highly recommend Howie’s for a luxurious and special signature Thai experience and plan to return.

I don't know where to start. My wife and I spent 3 nights last week and it was one of our most memorable stays ever. I have stayed at La Mamounia, 6 Aman resorts as well as many other 6-star places in the world but Howie's experience is something very difficult to explain - it was so amazing. The pavilion was fabulous and the overall property is a work of art. every corner is a treasure to behold and one can feel that the place is a product of love and not just architecture. Jerry, Howie's wife, is one of the finest chefs I have come across and I consider myself a foodie who travels to eat at Michelin Star restaurants worldwide. more than her cooking, it was the way she presented the food as well as the warmth with which she fed us everyday we felt our family members were feeding us on our annual holiday. Their attention to detail to maintain the comfort during the stay was outstanding - most importantly, it was luxury at the highest level. It was a perfect stay, where we had total privacy and yet he would exactly have the warmth to come and chat with us everyday to make sure we were doing great as well as keep us company over some wine. I can go on and on but suffice to say that anybody looking for a private luxurious place with finest hosts you can imagine, should go there at least once to experience what an amazing place that is. I have not even written about how he went out of his way to set up barbecue for us and make grilled steaks for us himself to celebrate our stay with us over wine on the last night together. We will be back very soon.....Thanks a lot Howie and Jerri

If you’re looking for the most romantic, private place in Chiang Mai, you found it! There’s 7 villas; however, they only rent out to one group at a time. Meaning if your only a couple, you'll have the entire resort to yourselves. It’s extremely secluded, and tranquil. The property was designed by architect Bill Bensley, which you'll quickly notice the attention to every detail possible. It’s about a 30 min drive from the airport, with a few shops for essentials in the area ( 7-11, pharmacy, fruit stands) about 2 minutes away. To do’s - waterfalls, elephants, bicycle tours, scenic area. The price is all inclusive, with all meals included by their onsite talented cook Jeri, which in its self is a thai culinary experience. They have a French Chef Alexandre Demard cook for French fine dinning chefs table experiences too,inquiry. The host Howie is very welcoming and accommodating with a wealth information about Chiang Mai and whose who. Best choice you can make, highly recommend!

It was 5 beautiful nights we spent at Howie's homestay. Truly a unique property with delicate architectural design and details. The site situated in an exceptional setting with view to Doi and surrounding by beautiful garden/ landscape. You will enjoy living in "Lanna" lifestyle among Howie's antique collections in each space. We received well hospitality from Howie and Jerri who cooks amazing food for our dinners including Northern specialty. It was a one of our trip after covid lockdown, we felt safe and the place is very high on hygiene. Great ideal place to travel to as you will enjoy so much of the privacy.

I consider myself extremely lucky to have visited Howie's Homestay right before travel became so difficult. My husband and two friends and I spent two weeks in Southeast Asia. Our time in Thailand was amazing but the stay with Howie and Jerri was the absolute highlight. Chiang Mai is an amazing city and Howie made sure that we made the most of our visit, focusing on the things we were most interested in (elephants! craft beer! shopping!) My favorite travel adventures have always been visiting friends abroad, and this was no exception. From the moment we booked, Howie was a friend who was so excited about our visit to Chiang Mai. And the property and the food rival any place we have stayed anywhere in the world. We travel quite a bit, and this experience was absolutely one-of-a-kind fabulous.
