The Space Chom View 'B'
The cabin is one of the two private cabins (Chom View Cabins) that we originally built our family and friends to stay when they visit Chiang Dao. It is set in the middle of coffee and tea plantation called DoiMek Estate.
The Assam tea trees are hundreds of years old, and our first coffee yields just won Top Ten Best Coffee of 2015 by Specialty Coffee Association of Thailand!
One extra single bed is available upon request. Guest Access You will have access to one cabin and using the whole plantation where you are welcome to pick your own tea tips and coffee berries if you're there in the right season. Feel free to take a hike down hill where we there's a small path, but do be careful and keep in mind that you are in the forest. Interaction with Guests We visit Chiang Dao twice a month, and we would be staying in a house a few hundred meters down the road. We will not come bother you unless you get bored and need some company.
If we are there, you are more than welcome to come visit us for breakfasts and have some coffee or wine too :) Just walk down the road a few hundred meters and knock on our doors!
There is a caretaker there who can help you out if necessary. The Neighborhood What makes this place unique? The view of the whole town of Chiang Dao, and the rolling clouds around the magnificent Mount Chiang Dao!
There is no restaurants around at all, so if you are staying just one night, bring food up to cook either on bbq, electric stovetop, or microwave. There is a small local 'shop' about 400 meters before arriving at the cabin, but basically selling crisps, eggs, and instant noodles. If you stay more than one night, you can go down and have local food in Chiang Dao town. Getting Around We suggest you have a car or motorbike. Once your booking is confirmed, there will be a detailed guideline on how to get there.
There is no public transport up the mountain. Other Things to Note IMPORTANT to keep in mind: the cabins are set in the forest. So, please respect the nature. Do not hunt or kill any animals. There are no large animals but be aware of some insects and sometimes mice. Even though they are clean and cute, refrain from feeding them. Make sure you secure all trash in the baskets provided.
We do our best to keep the cabin in its best condition. Do let us know if there are problems and we will have our local caretaker arrive as soon as possible. Our caretaker does not speak English, but you can call me and I will help you out.
There are other villages around, so please be considerate at night regarding noises. Keep mesh doors shut so insects won't come in to bother you at night.
The single phase electricity can sometimes get cut off during heavy rain. If you don't find this romantic, I do not recommend the place. But if you do, there are flashlights and candles to add extra romance to your stay :) ...
