A little hut
Bamboo Weaving Huts is a private homestay built in 2018 and located on the outskirts of Baan Na Pa Paek village. It takes about 1 hour from Mae Hong Son to Sansalit Homestay, a hideaway for a simple life.
Due to the coronavirus outbreak, our homestay will be closed until further notice.
This homestay has a unique style and can only handle a small family staying here for a two-person trip. The house setup on a hill slope includes a big balcony overlooking the garden, a large private farm and a flower garden with a good viewpoint.
The owner cannot speak English and does not book online. Therefore, if you want to stay here please come with a guide or Thai relationship. If not any please contact us before go there.
It’s not a touristic place. She designed for people who love peace, enjoy pure nature around them, and dine on her cooking, made from organic food.
Where is Sansalit Homestay
Baan Na Pa Paek village is home to Hmong and Shan hill tribes. You will drive up a high mountain for around 40 kilometers before turning right onto a local road. Sansalit homestay is a 5-minute walk away.
Facilities of homestay
A big balcony connects the living room, kitchen, and shared bathroom behind the house. The facilities are bamboo basic furniture and local equipment to stay here. She has only 1 room available for her guest.
Living simply, they have no air conditioning, TV, hairdryer, or minibar. Only wifi is available.
Mostly, her guests are Thai people who need to avoid the mess of the big city to relax here, and they love to sleep outside the room, lying back on the bamboo balcony overlooking a twinkle star until nap time.
She doesn’t want to set a price. Because it will cause her to be concerned about the guests’ expectations. Therefore, you should set a reasonable price for yourself based on your budget and the appreciation you got while staying here. She will be happy to be that.
To give you an idea, a homestay in the northern region normally costs a minimum of 500 THB per person per night, including 2 meals (dinner and breakfast).
What is breakfast and dinner
Yes, she serves a breakfast of local foods from her farm and fresh fruits. Dinner is great local organic food of 2–3 dishes served with steamed rice, which will satisfy everyone during your stay here.
Of course, if you want a favorite refreshing drink, you can buy it in town and bring it here. Or buy it from a neighboring shop in this village. It’s possible to make a particular request to her to prepare some of your favorite drinks.
For me, I love to shop for a can of Burmese beer at the Ban Rak Thai border market (Chinese Vilage). It has a good taste.
What to do
For example :
1. Become a farmer to join with her in the rice field.
Perhaps it is good to look for some activities to join with her, such as organic farming or handmade clothing, and the last one is to do nothing and look around for its atmosphere.
2. A half-day journey to Pang Oung, which has a large lake with black and white swans and is surrounded by pine trees and gardens, is possible. It takes about a 7-kilometer walk from here.
Moreover, visit Baan Rak Thai (Chinese Village), which was founded as Mae Aw by soldiers from China’s Yunnan region. It takes about 7 km, but in a different direction.
During day time, it might be possible to visit the border between Thailand and Myanmar at Baan Rak Thai (Mae Aw-Chinese Yunnan), which is a great choice for travellers interested in shopping, romance, and restaurants.
It is not easy to seek a simple and relaxing hideaway in the midst of nature and stunning surroundings. A fair price, simple facilities, and tasty organic meals were all included.
According to independent testimonials, I highly recommend visiting her homestay. Come to her homestay and have a good time.
