Having done the tourist itinerary and enjoyed it immensely we were looking for some real Thailand - and we found it with Steve and Sermsri. We had seen umpteen temples and Buddhas but Steve managed to show us yet more, really different ones - especially noteworthy - the White Temple. The Hill tribe villages were very interesting, especially their music and dancing. Each tribe having their own individual sounds and rhythms. As for the pottery, we only wished we had a trailer so we could have brought some home - they were wonderful. Best of all was the visit to the spinning and weaving house where the cotton and dyes were all grown in the garden and the ladies sat on the floor to prepare and make the fibres. We did manage to bring some fabric back with us - a lovely reminder of our stay in Thailand. Steve and Sermsri could not have been more kind and helpful and the food was wonderful.

All in all - "What are you waiting for?"

Stayed two nights at Lanna Thai Villa, then toured the North for four days. Drove back to Chiang Mai. Wonderful journey, culture and conversation! Excellent experience, service, comfort and food.

Muy Excellente!!!

We spent 4 days with Steve and Sermsri in the place that offered a truly incredible experience of relaxation in the peaceful surroundings of Chiang Rai. The whole place is beautifully decorated. The bedrooms are spacious with attached Western style bathrooms. The pool makes it a picture perfect villa; we did not expect to see a residential pool so large - it feels like you are at a resort. Our son could not resist and enjoyed the pool even in the December cool weather. The visit to the local temples - uniquely built and ornate, the incredible hosts, did everything possible to make our stay perfect; from the personal welcome at the airport upon arrival and at departure, visit to local interesting places, and best of all - excellent homemade food
by Sermsri. We would recommend the villa to anyone who desires the quiet solitude and an absolutely first class property. Its a true paradise.

Its a True Paradise

We arrived after only 3 hours notice and everything was just perfect! We didnt know what to expect in such a little place - a village outside Amphur Thoeng - and we were amazed! Such comfort and pampering! ...Again our many thanks for such an enjoyable short stay.

Such comfort and pampering.

Having six days to settle in, tour the surrounding area (in sunshine) and have the added benefit of restful rain, has given me the complete trip I was seeking. The home front here is a dream. A perfect retreat. Sermsri's cooking has been a delight. I hope to return in the future. 

Thanks for making this such a memorable trip.

Your new home is a dream. Just like the pictures... but even more so when you see the inside - the rooms, so well appointed - and peaceful. Iam very impressed with all that you give to have the good fortune to meet you here at Lanna Thai Villa. We have had so many exciting and beautiful experiences to carry inside ourselves for many years to come. Thank you, till next time.

So many exciting and beautiful experiences.
Ed and Anne Praczukowski,

We were very fortunate to have found this wonderful haven. We enjoyed our restful stay and we were sorry that it wasnt longer. Our room was impeccably decorated and only a few steps from the pool. The house they have built out here in the countryside is stunning. Sermsri prepared a delicious curry soup along with three different Thai dishes that we couldnt stop eating.

Wonderful haven.

Three nights in this lovely part of Thailand simply was not enough! We will return.
Thank you for the experiences of a lifetime and introducing us to local cultures.

We spent four nights here and it is just not enough to explore this wonderful part of Thailand so rich in culture. And, what a haven of peace and tranquility this house is. Steve and Sermsri's hospitality and knowledge of this region is priceless. We have to return one day soon!

A haven of peace and tranquility.

While traveling around the North of Thailand coming to a village and finding such a beautiful place to rest is a great pleasure.
Getting to know you and spending some time talking and visiting Thai Lue villages was a real treat. Thank you for a memorable day. We hope to see you again and stay a bit longer in your lovely house.

A memorable day.

How lucky we feel to have made the decision to come stay with you in your beautiful house. Your warmness and hospitality were what one gets when they come back home to relatives. We feel priveledged to have been able to share your joy for life and the serenity your house exudes. We look forward to returning to this area and hopefully
planting seeds to root of our own in Chiang Rai Province. It will be hard saying goodbye but much easier with the knowledge of our reuniting one day soon in the future.

It will be hard saying goodbye.

What a beautiful place!! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! It was great fun seeing the Teak Temple, the weaving and most importantly, the Rocket Festival! Steve did a fantastic job finding the festival out in the middle of nowhere. It was a great adventure for all of us! The next day was a trip to Phu Chi Fah to hike to the outlook. Another great adventure! Sermsri's cooking was phenomenal! We never went hungry. We were spoiled the entire stay! The company was great, the beer was cold, the pool was a perfect temp., the rooms were comfortable and the food was to die for! The perfect way to end an awesome vacation! Cant wait to return.

We were spoiled the entire stay!

A very relaxing place which has beautiful decor. Very luxurious even being so far off the beaten track. Stephen and Sermsri were as friendly as can be and the vegetarian cooking was delicious. We will definitely be recommending this to our expat friends.

A very relaxing place.

We stayed with Steve and Sermsri for 8 nights while on honeymoon in Thailand. We wish we had spent the entire duration here in their wonderful home! From the minute Steve picked us up at the airport it was like catching up with an old friend. Steve took us on many trips during our stay and his knowledge of local areas and customs is exceptional. Sermsri treated us like family from the moment she met us and had cooked for us some of the best food we have ever eaten!! During our stay Steve and Sermsri even arranged for us to take part in a traditional Thai wedding ceremony. They took care of every detail including a party to celebrate afterwards with Sermsri's family. The fun and good humor that night transcended language barriers and we havent laughed so much in ages!! They are all very special people. We will be taking away so many wonderful memories of our stay that will last a lifetime. Our honeymoon could not have been better.

So many wonderful memories

Birmingham, England, Sept.20 - 28, 2011


We found ourselves tired of cities (BKK, CM and CR) and luckily discovered the Villa, Steve, Sermsri, Spike and fellow guest Nelson. Over five (ish) days we experienced true hospitality, incredible generosity, and the rich (and often complex) experiences of Northern Thai culture. A local festival, hike in the hills/ (with a pair of 10 year old Hmong guides) and recon to the Laos border. We found great laughter and incredible rest - and the food kept coming - homecooking better than the best Boston restaurants.

We will be in touch - and send our friends.

Boston, Massachusetts, October 15 - 20, 2011.


Thanks for the hospitality

Stayed two nights here in this beautiful Villa. Our bus arrived one hour late due to some mechanical breakdown and when we got off at the bus station we saw Steve and Sermsri were there waiting. Interesting trip to the teak temple and Phu Chi Fah. Thanks for the hospitality.

We came as a family of four to explore the mountains and see what else Chiang Rai had to offer. We were given a good selection of places to go complete with directions and we found them all. And such a welcoming and comfortable place to stay between trips. Five nights of perfect relaxation. Three hundred photographs to take back. It could not have been better. Our thanks to our hosts Steve and Sermsri.

It could not have been better.

My stay with you this 5-6 days has been incredible and beyond my expectations! You have been very kind, gracious and light hearted in opening your guest home and life to give me a most memorable holiday in Chiang Rai. I felt rested, well fed and peaceful, even with Spike, who learned to love me a little. Thank you for making the wedding with the hill tribes possible, the weaving, pottery, art, temples and my new dress as well. I will always cherish my time here, hope to return some day. You are perfect hosts.

I will always cherish my time here.

What a beautiful home you have. The experience of being here
in total comfort, surrounded by a little authentic Thai village, fed
by a wonderful Thai cook, entertained and squired around by
someone who speaks English and Thai and is very knowledgeable
about the country and the people, is an unbeatable combination.
For my first experience in Thailand I couldn't have asked for anything better.

Thank you so much, Steve and Sermsri, for the lovely
experience at Lanna Thai Villa. I've already emailed
my cousin, and I shall certainly tell everyone back home.
Steve: You have given me so many insights into Thai
culture and politics. I particularly liked the last day
when we did a little hiking up in the mountains along
(and even over!) the Laos border. Sermsri - you are
the perfect hostess, and I shall not forget your cooking.
It is also fascinating to know someone who actually
grew up here. Consequently, I dont feel like a tourist,
but a friend.

Thank you so much.

We wish you all the best and had a great stay again.
As always it's a pleasure to talk (or cycle) with Steve,
and Sermsri's cooking surely must be one of the best
East of Chiang Mai. Spikey will sure be missed until we
visit you next time - hopefully in two years time! Thanks
for your warm hospitality. Lanna Thai Villa will always be
one to remember for us.

Thank you so much for your hospitality. It has been such a
pleasure for our family during the unbelieveably amazing
stay. Steve surprised us with his wide range knowledge
and his splendid life experience. Sermsri seriously made
our family put on a lot of weight with her brilliant dishes.
We came as strangers and leave as friends. And, we even
spent the most important day of a year, the Chinese Spring
Festival here.  Feeling nothing but warmth. We wish you all the

Steve and Sermsri, thank you so much for sharing your
lovely home with us. We loved the pool, amazing meals
and inviting rooms. Best of all, though, is your kindness.
Thanks for helpful suggestions for outings, for being
gracious with us concerning the chair in our room and
taking us to the weaving co-op. You have created a lovely
space to come and be refreshed. Thank you!

Steve and Sermsri - Thank you for a beautiful place to be
refreshed and renewed and ready to face the concrete jungle
of Bangkok once again. I so appreciate your hospitality and
kindness - and amazing food.

Bangkok, April 15-18, 2015


Thank you so much for such a wonderful visit. The food and
drinks were out of this world. We felt so welcome and the
home is so welcoming - what a wonderful layout and pool!
The two of you were the most wonderful hosts, always
accommodating and always made us feel at ease. Your
service as a guide was over the top! Your knowledge of the
area and way with the people made our visit very special and
memorable. There is no way we would of had the experience of
Northern Thailand without you! Thanks again.

I do have one piece of advice - dont start your trips
from your home as no one will want to leave

We were very lucky to find this lovely place.
The friendly way of Steve and Sermsri and
the excellent cooking make our stay a great
pleasure. Steve gave us some great tips to
traveling around, so our trip to the Phu Chi

I have so very much enjoyed your beautiful Villa and our stay here.
Sermsri your cooking was fabulous. You were both gracious and
wonderful. Steve, you are a real trooper to put up with the 3 ladies
shopping sprees.  Thank you for taking us to the wonderful tapestry
shop where we found wonderful pieces. It was a wonderful time. The
pool was a real plus which I loved. Thank you for your hospitality, Iam
so glad we found you.

California, November 17 - 22, 2015

What a treat being with you at your Villa. It was both relaxing after a
two week intense trip to Bhutan and also filled with so much of beautiful
Northern Thailand. Loved visiting the many sites - especially the Teak
Temple, the relocated hill tribes and today's to the hill tribe still in their
original historic habitat, and the amazing experience of a spirit ceremony;
then off to your favorite textile store where we all found many treasures.
Your hospitality, knowledge and Sermsri's fantastic meals are deeply

California, November 17 - 22, 2015

WOW! No place to start or stop in singing your praises and giving thanks.
From your careful creation of a magical Villa, to deep knowledge of the
area and people, to magnificent food, generous hospitality etc. etc. etc.
Also celebrating flexibility that set the stage for an amazing trip to the hill
tribes on Saturday. To simply run across the teacher to happening to be
at the right time to witness a ceremony. You both are a gift for the people
who come here.

Portland, Oregon, November 17 - 22, 2015

What delights to be spoiled by Sermsri's amazing cuisine. You both are so
delightful. A forever memory.

If the success of a vacation is measured in comfortable accommodation
and terrific food, then Lanna Thai Villa is the perfect site for an exceptional vacation.

If it is measured in serenity and aesthetic beauty, then this place is exemplary.

If it is measured in new experiences and exposure in learning and interchange, then
Lanna Thai Villa is superlative.

If it is measured in a sense of emotional satisfaction and mature spiritual fulfillment,
then we have found Nirvana!

Our stay here - all its many facets - has prepared us for our onward travels to
Chiang Mai and Bangkok and allowed us to begin to integrate and recuperate from
our pilgrimage to Bhutan

We have found Nirvana

appreciative of everything you have done for us.
All the best for the future.
