Guest Reviews
  19 wonderful days at Baan Cheep Chang
August 2014
My family of 4 (children aged 7 and 9) have just returned home from 19 wonderful days at Baan Cheep Chang. The villa was beautifully decorated in Traditional Thai style with the rich warmth of a private home and all the modern amenities that one would require including cable TV and WiFi...The eclectic Asian decor featuring many antiques, buddhas and of course elephants were a feast for the eyes and made this villa a home that I could imagine having decorated myself over the felt like our home away from home..a true villa vacation providing my children with a happy place to relax and have fun.

The spacious layout allowed for us to chill out together in the air-conditioned TV room, living room (indoors or out) or even any air-conditioned bedroom with it's own living room suite or for family fun of playing badminton and swimming in the pool. While at the same time providing enough space to easily find a quiet spot to read and relax. Although we were only 4, and the villa sleeps 12, we enjoyed the space.

We were all delighted with the food served to us at the villa and my daughter is a picky eater.

As villa holidays and relaxation go hand in hand, this villa offers you the amenities to return home soothed and refreshed. The masseuse that can be organized by the Villa Manager at short notice for US$10 an hour, the jacuzzi bath in the downstairs bedroom and the retreat of the sala where I could read while watching the children play in the pool were my personal favorites. Our discreet, aim-to-please housekeepers babysat when required which allowed my husband and I to also enjoy our Saturday morning walk. We went to the Royal Gardens (beautiful!!) 15 minutes away and had a romantic dinner out at the lovely restaurant 'Ginger & Kafe' in town offering a delicious selection of both Eastern and Western cuisine. This is your opportunity to try the local river fish, excellent!

The location was perfect! We were out of the city center enough to feel off the beaten track and close enough to enjoy all Chiang Mai has to offer, which is a lot. It enjoyed easy access to the Super Highway allowing for day visits to the neighboring provinces. With the addition of the car that came with the villa and the manager to help us pin-point our destinations on Co-Pilot, a GPS App downloaded to our phones, and a selfie-stick as a mount we were perfectly set up to go anywhere! Not that the villa manager didn't offer to be our driver but it was so easy to get around that we didn't need the service. The villa enjoyed tranquility next to the Ping River which made the villa easy to drive home to as all you had to do was follow the river into and out of town. During your day out of adventure at Tiger Kingdom, X-Centre, Elephant Park, Cave and Temple exploration or retail therapy of the Night Market, Sunday Market or your choice of First Class Malls (Festival Mall, 25 mins away is the largest in Northern Thailand), you also enjoy along the way, the wonderful delights of Thai Cuisine street food, Japanese restaurants, Korean cook-it-youself fun or an experience with Mall fast food which was healthy and delicious. And after all of this is done, you still have this warm home to return to.

This was our first trip to the East and it couldn't have gone better. I look forward to visiting their other villa in Phuket next time we make it that way which will no doubt be sooner rather than later.

As for the villa itself and all it has to offer, it was a great choice for us with our young children and also a wonderful experience of Thai culture with beautifully natured people who believe in luck and a healthy, simple way of life.

  An excellent alternative to a top-end hotel
July 2014
The villa is located on the outskirts of Chiang Mai, but is close enough that going backwards and forwards even 2 - 3 times a day is fine (the manager arranges transfers as you need them). The advantage is that you have a huge amount of space with a relaxing outdoor area to enjoy and you have all the help you could want with the villa manager and the maids who are always ready to make your stay more comfortable.

All in all, I would say that it is an excellent alternative to a top-end hotel if you feel like being in a quiet place with only your group.

The villa has been decorated with great care and obviously reflects the owners' tastes; we rather liked it as a complete change to what we are used to in Europe.
  A holiday I will never forget
September 2013
We stayed with friends for 2 weeks in September. The staff were fantastic at looking after us from the moment we arrived.. You have tremendous restaurants in the city 20 minutes but equally the food cooked by the villa is fantastic.

The house is tremendously decorated in traditional Thai style, a real pleasure to relax in and the perfect getaway.

Amazingly big and comfortable beds!

All modern necessities with wifi available by the pool etc. Imaculately looked after property.

Thank you Baan Cheep Chang for a holiday I will never forget. I will be back :)

  We had a great week at Baan Cheep Chang.
April 2013
Very relaxing, although we did many things: flight of the gibbon zipline, the Chiang Mai museum, zoo and insect zoo, silk factory, night safari, sunday market, elephant ride, bamboo rafting, night bazaar, etc!

Still time to swim and read books and travel magazines at the villa. We enjoyed the healthy Thai meals. The house is very stylish and we were all fond of the Siamese cats.

Thanks for a great holiday week.

  An amazing visit.
Feb 2013
We had an absolutely wonderful visit with great hospitality. Living in the beautiful villa with friends and family, and hosted by the staff with memorable meals, good sight-seeing and of course, some great golf. This made a holiday we will always remember.

Thank you (team) for making the visit so memorable.

October 2012
Thank you to Kim and team for a lovely relaxing and refreshing stay. The house is lovely in so many ways and grows on you. Throughout our stay, the kids loved the pool and jacuzzi and kept themselves entertained and amused all day.

We really appreciate the kind and thoughtful gestures throughout our stay, and Kim for arranging our or many trips out and our transport.

All of us, from 70yr old housebound grandparents, through to ziplining adrenaline junkies, shopaholics and a hysterical 2yr old, all had a fantastic time. Thanks again!
Tao & Family, Singapore word. Heaven!

No words I could find to describe our stay at Villa Chiang Mai! But one one. Heaven!

It's what we came for, and have received so much more. Kim and his crew, a heartfelt thank you for everything. We will remember Villa Chiang Mai always and most certainly be back again.
  What a beautiful time we have had here...
February 2012
Thank you for your kindness and all you have done to go out of your way to please us.

The house is absolutely charming and I wish we could spend much longer here. What a beautiful time we have had here in CM. Paul and myself had many wonderful evenings and many wonderful meals around charming people as only Thailand can provide.

Lets keep in touch and hope to be able to come back soon and much longer in this very pleasant property.

Thank you Mr Kim and staff for making our stay most enjoyable.

And your delicious food and birthday cake.

Thanks for providing us with such a beautiful house and living experience. We enjoyed every corner of it, and every minute in this house.

Mostly because of this villa, we will all miss Chiang Mai very much and look forward to our return here... Thank you.
  We couldn't have found a nicer venue, and will definitely recommend this place to our friends.
March 2011
The house maids were so friendly and pleasant, meeting our every little demands in such a ready and polite manner.

The chef was fantastic – each dish was delicious and got us wanting more than second helpings!

The driver was safe and patient who was ever ready to engage in information conversations

K.Kim the villa manager was so accommodating and attentive – kudos to him for planning a surprise birthday party for my friend with full fireworks!

Not to mention how warm and beautiful the villa is - it was just a perfect vacation for all of us!

Once again thank you for letting us stay at your villa in Chiangmai last week. Everyone had a delightful time and now sadly back at work. Kim and his team were great and intuitive to our needs. Cook was wonderful at delivering the meals and the girls worked hard. All guests said they would like to return sometime

We had a wonderful time at the villa and I am sure to come back again in the future. The staff made our stay very pleasant. My wife and I shall make another trip to Chiangmai soon to buy furniture for some appartments we have purchased in Kuala Lumpur and Kim has kindly shown me where your wife has bought some of the nice antique furniture in your villa.
The Butler family from the UK
  We had an absolutely wonderful time at your amazing villa which is a bit like a museum but with all the modern conveniences...
September 2007
We had an absolutely wonderful time at your amazing villa which is a bit like a museum but with all the modern conveniences and comforts and just like a real home should be... Ning the cook was better than excellent (some of the best Thai food we have ever had) and we decided to take most of our meals in despite the proximity and temptations of town... your place is really like a private resort rather a home and we often felt like just staying there and enjoying it ! When we went on excursions your villa manager Mr Kim was very helpful in showing us around... we hope to be back in 2008 for longer and with friends to experience your river suite!

Property Details
The main house has over 800sqm of interior space and is decorated to a very high standard with unique antiques from the region and a number of rare oriental rugs. The house is essentially built of teak which the owner has acquired over many years. Nevertheless it is constructed with modern comforts in mind and all rooms have ample natural light which is often a problem in Northern Thai style properties.

The villa stands in beautifully landscaped grounds of over two rai (over 3200sqm) and comprises three main buildings. The villa itself which has four huge air conditioned bedrooms, two lounges, a large reception and seated hand painted bar area, a dining room which can seat 14 indoors comfortably, a TV/DVD room and a study with computer/fax access.

A fifth bedroom with en suite bathroom lies in it’s own Thai style cottage right overlooking the banks of the river on the other side of the pool to the left of the sala. It also has a nice reading terrace. This room is perfect for honeymoon couples or older children wanting to be a little away from the rest.

One other building is a central Thai style two bedroom house which can be used for children or as lodgings for nannies/maids (the rooms are non air conditioned but have fans) or passing guests. This building also houses the service kitchen. Another smaller building which also has two bedrooms houses the villa manager and staff.

The property lies in a particularly green part of the outskirts of ChiangMai close enough to town to be able to go in for dinner and yet far enough to be truly in the countryside. It is also very close to Hang Dong and Baan Tawai which is the handicraft/antiques/furniture center which is well worth visiting for shopping purposes. Some large shopping centers are also only a few kilometers away (lotus, Robinson or Carrfour).

The villa has been tastefully decorated with no expense sparred by the owners and is floodlit at night along with the pool. For dining requirements you can choose the main mahogany dining table which comfortably seats 14 or the outdoor table under the veranda by the pool which can seat up to 8.

All rooms have views of the river and only the back room does not overlook the pool. There is a large balcony on the first floor which is an extension to the upper lounge and has sweeping views of the river and pool. This can be used for sunbathing or sipping cocktails in the evening.

The gardens themselves have been nicely landscaped and comprise a walkway on the banks of the river which lead on the one side to a Thai style Sala which can be used for massages or drinks overlooking the river and at the other end a small pontoon which may be used for fishing or simply contemplating the passing waters! There are also two artificial ornamental waterfalls and a lotus pond which add to the romantic effect and are also floodlit at night.

Living and Dining Areas
The outdoor terrace is covered and can seat eight. It overlooks the pool and the river. The pool area has sufficient shaded areas and sunny areas to satisfy all tastes. There are six deckchairs around the pool which is overlooked by some stunning four meter high hilltribe drums and some buddhas.

The indoor dining area is an antique mahogany dining table which seats 14 in comfort and is situated right next to the owners kitchen which is large and has all modern facilities such as microwaves, ovens, coffee making machines and toasters. All kinds of table ware and glasses are available and are of the highest quality. Barbecue facilities can also be arranged if required.

The downstairs living area comprises a large reception with a seated hand painted bar area for pre dinner drinks. The lounge downstairs is very large and can comfortably seat twelve people.

Close by is the air conditioned TV room with DVD player and cable TV with it's magnificent hand painted teak doors (cable TV gives access to most international channels with a wide range).

The upstairs lounge can come in handy when sharing the house with another family and it extends onto the first floor terrace overlooking the pool and river.

Three of the bedrooms are upstairs and are particularly large. Some have hand painted ceilings but all have romantic mosquito nets and are all air conditioned. All have en suite bathrooms with bath /shower and toilet.

The downstairs bedroom is particularly romantic with a four poster bed (super king size) and hand painted ceiling and solid hand painted teak doors. The bathroom opens out to lush bamboos.

Only the master bedroom upstairs has a TV at this time and it is only for national channels. The upstairs rooms have wonderful green country views overlooking the river and pool whilst the downstairs room gives the impression of being in the jungle with a particularly spacious bathroom.

Study room
The study room is not air conditioned but has a fan and is quite airy in the warm season. It is ideal for anyone wishing to do some serious work or write a book and has a very fast computer with Internet access, a printer and a fax machine which most businessmen will find more than adequate. This is also the "Buddha" room which could give some extra luck to those wishing to continue running their business or finances away from home! The room overlooks one of the waterfalls and is very relaxing.

The service kitchen is housed in the annexe for staff or children near the car porch whilst the owners kitchen is right next to the dining area and has all the modern facilities for those wishing to do the cooking themselves. There is a nice selection of glassware and tableware for any home entertaining.

Rates of Stay
Rental Information
We have recently reworked our rates so that people can see the costs based on their group size and/or the number of bedrooms used during their stay. This was implemented because we were often being asked by enquirers to apply discounts for varying group sizes and for what they wanted to use during their stay. Having the new multi-tier rates of stay shows a clear and fair rate based on actual usage.

If you have any specific questions or any special needs regarding your stay, you'll often find our Live Chat in operation where you can discuss in detail. If you prefer, you can send your specific questions to us directly by emailing :
