We are located about 10km south of Chiang Mai in Hang Dong about 15 minutes from the airport. Shopping, dining, wine bar (Kad Farang) are an easy bicycle trip away (20 minute walk) and there is a 25 meter swimming pool a 3 minute walk from our house. Probably best to have your own transportation or we can reserve car & driver. The rental house has a full-size pool/snooker table and out-door ping pong table available for guest use. 3 bicycles also available for guest use at no charge.
You'll have a whole house to yourself with a snooker table and a ping pong table as well. You will also be welcome to relax in the sala (gazebo) in the garden between your house and our house.
Interaction with guests
We live next door and are available to help. We speak, English, Thai, German and some Spanish. My wife taught Thai cooking in the USA and will offer a course if guests are interested. You will shop in our local market and learn to make a meal with 3-4 Thai dishes.
Other things to note
We have local taxi and tour van contacts. If you do not wish to drive, we can arrange a car and driver for you, but request you give us one week's notice, since our preferred driver (van seats up to 9) is very busy. Full-day trips to local sights can be arranged.
This is a quiet residential neighborhood, so we expect our guests to act accordingly. No smoking indoors.
My wife (Phijitra, Thai) and I (John, USA) retired to Chiang Mai in the fall of 2014. We have owned our house (actually two houses separated by a garden) for many years, but this is the first year we have lived here year-round. We love Thailand and SE Asia and wanted to share our knowledge and insights with others, so we decided to list our guest house on Airbnb. We look forward to meeting many interesting people from all over the world.
