Beautiful, Luxury Vacation Rental with Free Car and Driver + daily Maid Servi


Our beautiful vacation villa with private swimming pool is situated in a gated community with lush green tropical surroundings located just outside of Chiang Mai, Thailand. Our villa is approximately 20 minutes from the city center of Chiang Mai,. The gated community is called Home in Park.

There is a limit of 6 guests maximum that we can accommodate. This amount includes children, of any age. Sorry there are no exceptions to this rule.

The rental comes with a Toyota Avanza and a chauffeur. Wat, our driver can drive you to most of your northern Thailand destinations. Our driver's hour are 8:00 AM (0800) until 11:00 PM (2300) This is a total of 15 hours use of a personal driver each day. All of theses hours are included in the rental price. Watt's final pick up is 10:30 PM as it takes time to drive to the house. You will need to download GRAB or UBER or hire a taxi if you need to be away from the villa between the hours of 11:00 PM and 8:00 AM.

( If you rented a car with driver in Chiang Mai for 8 hours, the cost would be $100 for only 8 hours) You are getting a car with driver for 15 hours plus a luxury villa with a private swimming pool with daily maid service.

If there are too many guests, that the luggage cannot fit into the car, Wat will help you get a taxi to follow him to the house with your luggage. The taxi will cost you approximately 500 to 600 baht each way. If you stay 7 nights or longer, we ill pay for the taxi. Please have someone from your group ride in the taxi with your luggage, for your protection.

You will be given a cell phone for your use during your stay. If you need to purchase more time, you can do so by going to any 7-11 and hand them your cell phone and tell them how many baht that you wish to spend. To check the amount of remaining minutes, press *123#.

Also included is daily maid service Monday through Saturday to take care of the cleaning and all of your laundry and ironing that you use during your entire stay at our villa. There will be an extra fee of 500 baht if you bring any laundry from a previous trip before arriving at our villa. The extra laundry puts a lot of extra work for our maid. This amount must be given directly to our maid. Our maid does not do any of the cooking. So sit back, relax and enjoy your stay. The maid has Sundays and all Thai Holidays off.

Everything is included in the price except adding minutes to your cell phone and the cost of gasoline that you use during your entire stay, including the final fill up of gasoline which occurs on your way to the airport.

Tips are greatly appreciated by both driver and maid. Much of their pay is based on tips so they strive to provide you with excellent service. Tips can be presented at the end of your stay. Average tips range from 100 baht to 200 baht for each day of your stay for each maid and driver. This is just an example - not a requirement. Thank you!

About Diana Shelton

Hello ,

Our name is Diana and Stuart Shelton. We both live in the Seattle, Washington area . We both retired in 2017 from the Boeing Company in Everett Washington. We are excited about coming back to visit in Thailand and also now have the time to enjoy other travel locations.

Diana Shelton purchased this villa in 2014

Why Diana Shelton chose Chiang Mai City

This property is great! It's quiet, peaceful and the surroundings are very lush, green and tropical. It also has 24/7 security and is away from the noise and hussle and bustle of the city. There is also a tennis court, a large Balinese style, swimming pool, and a work out area just down the street. A fee of 60 baht must be paid at the office for each time that you use these facilities.

What makes this villa unique

We have the best driver, Wat, to assist you in getting you to the various attractions that you would like to see while visiting in Chiang Mai. Our driver, Wat will be on call to you for a total of 15 hours each day. If you hired a private driver with a car in Chiang Mai for 8 hours, it would cost you $100 for only the 8 hours. Wat, our driver is very patient and always willing to help you. A cell phone will be provided for you to use during your stay at our vacation villa. It will come with minutes already on it but you can purchase additional minutes at any 7-11 store.

Our daily maid service is outstanding! All of your laundry and cleaning will be given the utmost attention.

The private swimming pool is a also great asset for those who wish to swim without being crowded in a public pool. Enjoy!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our short but awesome stay in Chiang Mai was incredible! Before we arrived we asked lots of questions and Diana was always prompt and thorough with her responses. Thanks to her awesome advice we were able to fit lots of site seeing and great restaurants all within our 2 day stay. Wat, the driver, was extremely helpful, patient and accommodating with all of our requests. The house was always clean and well kept when we arrived home, and we even managed to cook a family dinner on our last night (the kitchen is fully equipped with everything you can possibly think of). We will definitely be staying here again, hopefully for a longer stay in Chiang Mai next time!

Excellent villa stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful visit to Chiang Mai staying in this luxury villa. The property is exactly as depicted in the listing and photos. The pool is outstanding and a great spot to cool off in the heat. Very quiet relaxing neighborhood, but not far to get to the centre of Chiang Mai and other activities.

The driver provided with the Villa was fantastic. We really appreciated his services and the transfers that were included with the Villa rental as well as the ability to have him take us to activities in the area.

The home and property are very well maintained and comfortable overall.

Lots of things to do in the Chiang Mai area. A highlight for us was a day spent with the elephants at Chi Jungle Man. Small ethical operation that allows you to visit the elephants and accompany them throughout a normal days activities including preparing and feeding them, hike through the jungle, and down to the river to bathe them and to learn a lot about elephants, their history in Thailand, as well as about the Karen people. It was a real once-in-a-lifetime experience for all of us.

Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Beatiful property, would come back again!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Diana and Stewart. It was our pleasure meeting both of you! Wish we would have met you guys sooner, there was still so much we would have loved to hear more about Chiang Mai and Thailand in general. My parents, brother and I had a wonderful stay. It was a very beautiful property, very nice and quiet. Not walking distance to anything, but still very convenient due to the driver Watt taking us anywhere we wanted to go. Maid was wonderful as well, we never had to worry about laundry. Diana was very quick to reply to any questions or messages we had. She was very accommodating in whatever you needed. Would book with them again.

One of our best stays ever!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Diana for making our stay so easy!

From the moment we arrived in Chiang Mai, we knew we found someplace special!

Wat the driver was at the airport to pick us up and he managed to get all our luggage and the 5 of us in the car! He has the patience of a saint! He was there to take us to all the amazing places in and around Chiang Mai.

Everyday we came home To a sparkling clean house! Plus Duen the housekeeper had all of our laundry done. She is an amazing and a very kind person!

We were a family of 5, our son and wife with our adult granddaughter. This house worked perfect! The pool was a hit! It was a perfect place to cool off.

This is an upscale house in a very upscale neighborhood. You won't be disappointed.

Thank you again Diana for taking care of everything!!

We will be back

Lower mainland, BC, Canada


  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for four nights in April 2016. As promised the driver was already waiting for us at the airport when we arrived. My husband and I and our three kids +2 big suitcases fit in the car. The drive was about 20 minutes to the house. The complex is quiet and beautifully maintained and has security at the front. The house was immaculate. The maid even did our laundry for us daily. It was very nice considering we only packed a suitcase for 7 days and had still 7 days left in Phuket. There's air-conditioning in each bedroom and in the kitchen area. The kitchen has everything that you might need for cooking a full meal. The Big C supermarket is only a 10 minute drive away from the property and the driver had no problems driving back-and-forth. We had planned our own activities for the day, and the driver got up really early to drop off or pick us up very late in the evening. The maid and driver were very nice. The swimming pool is a good size to entertain a family of five, and there were even some water toys there already. Water was clean and maintained daily. The Owner was very accommodating answering all our questions and even send us a stuffy that was left behind by one of our daughters all the way back to Canada.
