Guestbook comments from the owner
I tend to shy away from doing Best Of lists myself, but when I do, I like to promote exceptional places that may have absolutely nothing with what the food fashion is now or following blindly the latest trend. A perfect meal is so much more. Mine took place in the Himalayan foothills in the Mae Sa Valley outside of Chiang Mai at a private resort called Howie's HomeStay.
Howie's is a unique kind of place, just 30 minutes from the airport, easy to reach yet completely isolated, surrounded only by water buffalo and local villagers. Regulars who come to Howie's like to keep it secret, and with good reason. To make a long story short, the owner, Howie, dropped out of a profitable business and took years to create the ultimate private home, which in turn became the ultimate private resort. The cook, his wife Jerri, an accomplished Salsa dancer and charming conversationalist, created a feast of Chiang Mai specialties seemingly without end: red, green, and yellow curries, crab omelet, roast pork and chicken, salads, soups, a rarified best of some of the best street food in the world. No subtitles, and it's all love and friendliness.
Your hosts are Howie an American from Boston and his wife Jerri, from Bangkok. We have lived in Chiang Mai for 20 year and we treat you to all the insiders information on what to do and where to go....or just stay here and relax in pure comfort.... a step up from 5 star resorts!
This is a spectacular signature property that is now open as a bespoke HomeStay. A new level of stay experience as you are the only guests or you can bring friends or family as we have 4 bedrooms available
Private, Beautiful and Personal....Truly nicer than the photos!
Located in the cool lush mountains of Northern Thailand.
