As part of our three month trip my husband and I booked two weeks at Richard's Twin Peaks condo and are so happy that we did. From the moment we started planning the trip to the day we left all went very smoothly. The unit is in a fabulous building with friendly and helpful staff, the location which is close to the night market (but not too close) makes it easy to get around, and there are some great restaurants (Butter is Better and Shababa) and a lovely inexpensive massage place (Maesalong) practically on the doorstep.
The condo unit itself is quite large and very comfy. The bonus of having a washing machine and then balcony to dry things on made the trip so much easier. While the kitchen stove isn't really up to the task of cooking large meals (it only has two burners) we found it was pretty much cheaper to eat out than to buy all the ingredients needed for a meal. But it was great for breakfasts and the occasional lunch in.
Will definitely stay here again if we have the chance.

I have for the past 5 years spent the month of August in Chiang Mai and this was my 5th time to stay at Twin Peaks Condos. As mentioned you will be picked up at the airport by Richard, regardless of what time you are coming in, he'll be there waiting for you. I try to stay in the same room every year that is on the 6th floor and faces the temple on the mountain, Doi Suteph. It has a great view of the mountains and Chang Klan road you can also see the night Bazzar from the covered balcony.. The rooms are great, I have stayed in 3 different rooms all on the 6th floor all with balconies, all just as nice as my favorite. They are all well furnished and tastefully decorated..
I'm already planning my trip back in 2016 and will do my best to get my regular room. The staff is all first class and speak fluent English. They will help you with any needs you may have. You can't go wrong with any of Richard's properties, you get what is advertised and will never be disappointed.
Thanks Richard for another great stay, see you in August.
Our condo at Twin Peaks was exactly as Richard described..beautiful and perfectly located.
We were met at the airport and so warmly welcomed that it felt like "coming home". Richard introduced us to Na, who is a wonderful and informative tour guide. She helped us plan our tours, and took us on a full day tour and a two day to the Golden Triangle. Richard is a wealth of information and his guidance in planning our month stay was everything we could have hoped for. Do not hesitate to contact Richard Katze... he is the best!
This apartment was 5 star all the way. Richard the OWNER greeted me at the airport himself which was very nice.
I have already book 3 other apartments with Richard. 1ST Class operation I have book 3 apartments for November.
Twin Peaks is a well managed condo conveniently located near the Night Bazaar and a 15 minute walk from the old part of town and a 10 minute walk from the Ping River. The staff makes you feel like a welcome guest and the beautiful pool area and exercise room are pluses. We rented our studio apartment through Richard Katze and everything was as he represented and he provided many helpful tips after our arrival. We are staying for a month and consider it to be much better than a room in a guest house or hotel for longer stays.
