Our Airbnb experience

Our virgin Airbnb experience in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Some of the photos can be found in our photo albums Day 1, Day 2, Day 3 and Day 4.

We are really late when it comes to booking an accommodation via Airbnb 🙂

Our family of six is considered big. Unfortunately, that means most Hotel policy would require us to book two rooms or opt for a suite (ie spend more money). That leaves us with apartments, and recently Airbnb.

But we have also heard of horror stories about Airbnb (robbery, rape, stolen luggage, damage of furnishings etc). What about location?

For most families, safety is the Number 1 requirement, we shortlist reliable hosts, ideally a house or apartment in a safe neighbourhood.

Second criteria for us is location and convenience.
No point hunting for cheapest home only to walk 15 to 20 minutes to train or bus services daily, this would be tiring for families with young kids.

Ideally there are amenities like hot water, aircon or wifi. Carpark facility (security) will be a plus point if we choose Malaysia Airbnb options. We read all previous customers’ feedback, especially those with kids.

Fortunately, we met a superb host in Chiang Mai to seal our Airbnb experience. We rented the whole house from Mo, which comes with three bedrooms. Although house is already 80 years old (with some creaking corners), we love the whole rustic ambience.

Kids obviously kept themselves busy playing hide and seek in the garden or feeding the guppies! We love the breakfast in the garden and I love the open air shower (can be chilly).

Above all, our experience was really positive due to our kind host Mo (and her Mum). Their family really loves kids and we felt really comfortable staying over for four nights!

We will definitely invite our friends to consider Baan Sri Dha for their future Chiang Mai options.

Friends and readers out there, if you have more recommendations and feedback for Airbnb selection, or even alternative accommodation options, do share with us.

We are excited about future options of loghouse, treehouse, farm house and other exotic options.

    1. Glad you find an ideal “vacation “home”, with SuperHost too 🙂
      I just pop by Airbnb Finland and jaw-dropped at the scenery! (view of sea, lake, snow-capped mountains! )
      (and I had initially thought Finland more ulu than SG)

    1. I definitely need the extra legrooms haha! And so far we are amazed with the hosts’ passion and response.
      Airbnb Feels more personal rather than commercial.

      Airbnb should engaged us to promote their services :p
