About the Homestay
It is pleasure to virtually meet you.
Let me introduce myself and my lovely home to you.
My name is Phaijitra. I'm 40 years old. I am originally from E-san (northeast) Thailand.I'm in a couple. I live with my boyfriend but sometime he's traveling around, he is French. He is friendly. I was live in Bangkok for 15 years before I moved to Chiangmai on 2011. I'm live in Maerim.
Maerim is small local village, which is located next to Chiangmai city. Getting to Maerim takes only 20 minutes driving from Chiangmai. Maerim is a beautiful town with stunning scenery. There is so much more flames and flower in the area that might take your breath away.
About my family:
I have 2 dogs, 1 Labrador and another 1 dogs I adopted. They are quiet. Quite often my sister, little 6 years old nephew and his 14 years old sister come to my home because they live close to me.

Our stay was amazing! The house is very nice and comfy, location is amazing, between rice fields, flower fields, mountains and lake. We totally recommend staying there ! Thanks again for hosting us !!
Phaijitra and her boyfriend are very lovely, very hospitable people with two lovely dogs. Their bamboo huts are cosy and they have a lovely shaded outdoor area. The accommodation is situated in a rural area outside Chiang Mai. Experiencing the rural life there was a definite highlight of our trip.
When we arrived, after we settled in they took us to the market to pick up ingredients for a meal of our choice, which we were then walked through the preparation of. We chose Koh Soi, a typical dish of the region, which was the most delicious meal we had during our stay in Thailand.
After that, they took us to a river to experience the Buddhist celebration of water, which involved candle and incense floats, lanterns, fireworks and spending time Phaijitra's cute niece and nephew.
Highly recommend staying here, my girlfriend and I regretted not staying longer, it was a lovely break from the intense and touristy nature of Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Pai, etc.
Thank you both so much for spending two whole days with us, hope to come visit again soon. :)
Amazing days with Phaijitra ! She picks me up to the airport and then we visited Chiang Mai together before going to the sunday night market, it was so cool ! I could take a bike for free and visited around her beautiful place, have a nice walk in the morning, lot of discussion with Phaijitra. We went to 2 differents local market before cooking together. I recommend you this place ! If you want, you can visited by yourself but It was so nice to discover Chiang Mai with Phaijitra and have many explanations!
For sure you will like your bamboo home which is very cosy ;)
Phaijitra is the best host you can ever have!
She has a lovely, peaceful and quiet place: the bamboo cottage is very comfortable, the garden is full of flowers and the bathroom is very practical.
Phaijitra took us for a walk around the rice field and the village with dogs, she brought us to the local market, she adviced us for activities around and find scooter for us. She teached us Thai food so well.
The breakfast is amazing, Phaijitra is a really good cooker, she is lovely and cute, we had really moments with her.
We will come back again and we recommend her and her place!
Thank you so much Phaijitra!
