I stayed for a few days with Barry and family, and Barry hired a motorcycle for me.

I then explored local roads and towns, visited Mae Rim Elephant farm"---superb' and caught giant fish at local fish farm lake--catch and release, in most civilized conditions.

Barry showed me around a bit also before I left for a few days on the bike- headed north with Barry's directions- to Chiang Rai.

Returned for some luxury before heading back to the bustle f C.Mai and BKK.

Thanks Barry and Suneee and Narweer(?)--- next time have a push bike for me will ya?

Room tip: only three units but they're immaculate!

A few weeks ago we, a group of dutch cyclists and their support visited Baan Akeela Home stay. Well it was a wonderfull experience. After our very nice tour about 70 km, we were very charmingly welcomed by Barrie and Sunee and their staff. We had a well deserved welcome drink and healthy fruits. After a good chat with barrie we went to see the surrounding area and the Ngat Dam. We took a boattour on the lake and enjoyed the spacious view from the water.
Back at the home stay Sunee and the girls had cooked a wonderfull thai meal for us.. very fresh, with a lot of veggies and carbes.. Off course we did enjoy a good thai beer too..
The guesthouses are very nice decorated and the bed is big and gives you a very good nightsrest.
In the morning we enjoyed the view over the paddyfields and were invited to the very nutricious english breakfast.. Even we , dutch guys, had to do our best to master this enormous and delicious meal. It gave us enough strenght to start our tour back to the city again..
Barrie and sunee are very gentle and friendly hosts.. they love their place and their guests, so it didn't look like work to them...
we felt very welcome and at home.. we hope to see you very soon again.

Jan S. and the duch friends.

We stayed here over Songkran to escape Chiang Mai as we’ve seen too many Songkrans in previous years! The accommodation is absolutely first class. The chalets are newly built with no compromise made to quality. There is nothing primitive about this place!
Actually our plan was to go to stay at the dam accommodation, but as that was full we were recommended to go to Barry and Sunee’s homestay. We ended up being very glad the dam accommodation was full. We went as two couples and three children and once we got talking we ended up staying two nights even although we had plans to stay only one night. Barry and Sunnee are wonderful hosts and Sunnee knows how to cook for the farang taste. The English breakfast was included in the room rate and was spot on. Barry is a keen cyclist and knows the area well and can direct you to anywhere you may wish to go. He also seems to be willing to be your guide although we ended up doing not a lot, except for one Songkran run with the kids and spending some time walking at the dam.
If you are coming here, I would get an idea of what you wish to do beforehand. If you are not into socializing with your hosts or just plain peace and quiet, maybe you could get bored after day one. If you know what you are doing and have plans, then you won’t easily find a nicer place to stay.

Room tip: All rooms are the same

Super Fantastic is the word to describe Ban Akeela Homestay.The Homestay and property is a very high standard, the room has all you need to make your stay there very very comfortable. The food is Teriffic cooked by the owners lovely Thia Wife's own fair hand both are very attentive to make your stay something to remember. the owner picks you up from the airport and takes you back and will take you out to various places and attractions in the area if you ask him. If its peace and tranquility you are looking for this is the place to stay but if you feel the need to rave it up and have some fun all night long then Chiang Mai is not too far away.This homestay does not have any negatives only positives. there are bikes for rent if your the energetic type as owner is keen cyclist and would take you out on the bikes there is canoeing not far away on the resevoir local markets in the morning and evening in the village. I visited the Elephant camp for an excellent afternoons entertainment where you can ride an elephant and watch the Demonstration with the Elephants. Ban Keela is a must visit if your going to the north of Thialand nd im sure once you have been you would tell your friends about it, Overall a 10 star place to stay, thats how good it was

Room tip: All three rooms are excellent and are away from the house and are all detached from each other so you dont have to whisper in your room if you keep the windows closed and the air con on, All beds are king size and very comfortable, All rooms have tea or coffee making facilities in the room and fridge, and free WI FI, as with all Asian houses you have to remove your shoes when you go into the room and the the breakfast area

We had a wonderful 3 days with Barry & Sunee over Christmas 2011 and within minutes of our arrival were wishing we had booked to stay longer. The homestay was spotless and very comfortable, the atmosphere is totally relaxed and chilled out. Barry and Sunee were incredibly friendly and keen to make our stay as enjoyable as possible.
Barry took us on an excursion to the near by elephant camp, a breathtaking experience. We had no idea there were so many things to do in the area and really wished we had been able to stay longer.
Sunee is a fantastic cook, equally skilled at the full English breakfast and traditional Thai food.
We are already planning our next holiday to Thailand, and will be returning to Barry and Sunee for a longer stay next time to enable us to really enjoy this beautiful area, as it’s a great base from which to explore this northern part of Thailand.
Every aspect of our stay was first class, thank you Barry & Sunee. Look forward to seeing you again next year!

Room tip: All 3 of the homestays are brand new and beautifully peaceful.
