Mana TaLingChan, a unique thai style wooden villa is a true getaway stay in the busy city! It perfectly fits a couple travelers to a small family. Located in reserve Bangkok green zone, within 10mins drive to the nearest BTS Bang-wa station. Relax by the famous canal and enjoy my mom's greenery.

The space

This truly unique renovated Modern-Thai style home is the best kept secret for those who seek quiet, clean, greenery, local living(laid back Bangkok), floating markets, canal adventure , but still within the busy City. The whole house is all yours!!

The villa sits facing the famous local canal, this waterfront villa has a dock that can be use for getting on a long tail boat into sightseeing route of the famous Bangkok floating market scene on the weekend, or rent a private long tail boat cruising along the way up to the Chao Pra Ya river. While we are not recommending to use boat for travel from place to place because it usually take longer to travel by boat than by car. But it is always a fun activities going to Grand Palace and Temple of Dawn by boat if you have enough time to kill..

I am open for all your questions/request prior booking. The house has been renovated(add in/out furnitures) so furnitures and things may not stay on the same spots as shown in the pictures. It is just kept getting better and open for customization that is kind of flexible to set up open to your request as well.

Another bedroom is available for extra guests in the main living area.

The air condition is available on the whole main living areas & sleeping floor(2 bedrooms, living area, soft kitchen and dining table ). The ground level is the common area with lots of open space, so air-condition is only available in the extra bedroom.

The area of my house and the villa is in the same family estate, and we only have limited staffs to take care of the whole area easily. In this matter,when there is any guest stay at the villa. We will have my maintainance guy and maid from my house watch over around the area just in case you need extra help on anything. I am available via text or chat anytime of the day, and will try to be helpful if I am not too busy working on other things. Every one here at this place loves to welcome all style of guests, the staffs may seems a bit shy due to the language barrier, but I am sure they will be more than happy to help you with Food prep, BBQ setup, clean up, troubleshoot / issues on property, so please feel free to ask.

Interaction with guests

Privacy, friendly, happy, flexibility. The House where I live is just right next door(the other side of the canal). Personal Driver/taxi or rental car - recommended if you want to travel many places. I can help you on any local specific arrangement. Please feel free to let me know what's your flavor.

Other things to note

Quiet Canal neighborhood.

Sound of birds singing, noise of the local boat engine, floating kitchen chatting, and wood floor squeezing..

My family had such an amazing time at Sorapob's villa. It's beyond our expectation. The breakfast was different everyday and very authentic!!!Fruit was the best! Although the location is far from downtown, we found Uber as a very efficient way to get around. We also enjoyed the Food Villa minutes away from the house. Sunny is such a wonderful host. When my mom accidentally left her cellphone on a Uber car, Sunny rushed back home and helped us to find the cellphone. We are grateful for everything they've done for us.

We lived our stay here. Breakfast was fresh and home cooked everyday during our stay. The host went above and beyond to help us plan our day and schedule our taxi rides. The pace is great if u really want to relax outside of the city and enjoy scenery. The only downside is we weren’t close to the night life but we still enjoyed the villa. I would stay here again if I want to enjoy a relaxing vacation. Oh and the beds were sooooo comfy.

This house is an excellent choice if you want to sample some real Thai living rather than the noise and pollution of downtown Bangkok. Accessing Bangkok is relatively easy (15 min taxi to BTS). Anywhere in Bangkok is within a 30-60 min taxi or Uber ride. Sunny is really takes care of her guests. She responds to messages fast and comprehensively. The breakfast was great. We got some recommendations about the surrounding area and Bangkok. The house is very comfortable: fantastic mattresses and bed sheets, cosy wooden interior, large and clean bathroom. Could not find any faults.

What a lovely house. Privacy yet our host Sunny was just a phone call or message away and we would have a cab called for us or even special meals. Breakfasts were amazing thanks to the lovely mum living next door. Having a scooter and bikes was wonderful for exploring. Everything thought of from sun block to insect repellent and even mentioning our favourite dishes meant they appeared for breakfast the next morning

This was my third trip to Thailand and my second time to stay at the Villa. Everything was absolutely perfect. The descriptions that are given do not do justice to the beauty, charm, and hospitality of this listing. Beer and his family made us feel welcomed in ways that went beyond our expectations. I definitely will be back.

We had a great time in Sorapob's house. We are grateful to Sunny and the mother's hospitality. They go extra miles to make our holiday more pleasant, eg. we are invited to have their homemade sticky rice upon arrival. We are offered a full basket of fresh fruits and sometimes they even prepared additional cut fruit. Water bottles always sufficient. The house is very clean and spacious with good taste. We enjoy the tranquility when sitting in the porch and appreciating the view, and more importantly the local life. This is the reason why we choose airbnb, and living in Sorapob's house complete our experience in Bangkok. It will be a definately unforgetable memory for me and my family. Thanks again for the hospitality.

Adding to everyone elses praise about this home! Breakfast is delicious (not just fruit and pastries here!), it is incredibly easy to communicate with them before and during your stay and everything is very clean and accessible. There were multiple examples of them going above and beyond during our stay. Recommend doing a cooking session with the family, meeting Hippo and taking a boat from the house. Small things to note: with traffic it can take an hour to get into the city by car, the morning rooster is persistent and the third bedroom/2nd bathroom is outside. I would not hesitate to recommend a stay here, it feels like staying with friends.
