We live in south Chiang Mai, 15 min drive from down-town. We have a three bedrooms, a large living room and a kitchen. The house is quite big. Lots of natural toys outside, a huge yard and lots of places to ride a bicycle near by. Markets and restaurants in the area. The place has a very rural-feeling. Very good for kids.
Dog needs food and love but can manage itself, no need to walk. Chicken and a goat need food about twice a week.
