We travelled all around Thailand, this spring, and this was the best place to be, from Ko Tao, to Chiang Rai. If you want to experience what it is like to be included in an authentic family, with a perfect quality of service and unforgettable smiles and laughters of the intelligent and sensible children living there, this guesthouse is the...

Even though everyone was nice to us, nothing horrible happened, far from that, i didn't find the sincerity I was expecting. First, all the activities there are very expensive and we felt...

We will try to improve to look more in detail - because we could not catch your disappointed feelings when you stayed with us. For the price to visit our childrens aid...

I chose to stay at Joy's House for the last 3 nights of an 8 month trip for some peace of mind and I was not disappointed. The moment you pass through the gates, tranquility reigned supreme. It's a little way out of Chiang Mai but I liked that about it because it made it more of a haven. I...

Joy's House and the Foundation is doing great things for kids. It is nice to stay, get involved with the activities and know your tourist $ are directly supporting a good cause. The only negative is the pressure we were made to feel to participate in Joy's programs.

Joy's House was exactly that...an absolute joy. Not only is the location and rooms beautiful, but the people provide the local touch of Thailand that makes the stay really special. Not only were the staff helpful and personable, but the breakfast was fantastic - both the food and the breakfast area. We also took the cooking class offered by Joy's...
