General description

  • Main home
Large 2-bedroom house with in a quiet gated community and directly across the street from a very relaxing coffee shop and garden. The house is outside the city located about a 15 minute drive from Chiang Mai Airport and 20 minute drive to the city. It is close to several big grocery shopping centers and local shops. Dogs, Lila and Mango, are very friendly, low maintenance, and quiet.

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • Animals with specific needs
  • 2 dogs
I expect the house-sitter to take good care of my two dogs. Mango (2.5 years) and Lila (3 years) are Thai street dogs that were adopted as young puppies. Lila requires medication (1 pill) in the morning and evening (she is very good about taking her pills) and is otherwise very low maintenance. Mango is very well behaved, but loves to be around people and will get separation anxiety if left alone for too long. If the house-sitter is out for the day, the dogs will have to be locked outside the house in the fenced in garden. The house-sitter will be expected to take Mango for a walk every day or play in the yard with her so that she can expel her energy. There are also some plants in the yard that will require watering several times per week. In order to get to and from the city, the house-sitter should plan on using uber or grab which generally costs between 80-120 baht ($2-$3.75 USD) each way (often discounts are available).

The house is in a relaxing area with a nice garden in a Thai community. Many foreigners frequent the coffee shop that is directly across from the house. There are markets and shopping centers nearby. There are neighbors only on one side of the house. Chiang Mai Old City is a 15-20 minute motorbike or car ride away. The house is also about 15-20 minutes from Chiang Mai University which is nearby many great shops, restaurants, and nightlife.

I also have a great house-keeper come to the house once per week and does an excellent job helping keep the house tidy.

Chiang Mai is a unique and beautiful city full of culture and beauty. There are hundreds of temples to tour, markets to wander, and frequent festivals. There are some great hiking trails, waterfalls, and national parks in the area too! Past house-sitters have enjoyed relaxing mornings away from the busy city enjoying a cup of coffee or tea in the subdivision's cafe. I know a local tour guide that I can put you in touch with who does an excellent job providing private tours to fit the needs of his guests and help you have a wonderful experience in Chiang Mai.
