The driver should park in front of the Indie House. We are down the small alley just across. Walk down the alley, look on the left for the low brown iron sliding rail that leads to our parking lot. You will know you are in the right place when you see the CMStay sign and two washing machines on the right. Our place is 4 stories tall and pinkish in color. 

There are going to be times where no one will be there to meet you. (Late check-ins, early check-ins, etc) If this is the case, we will arrange to leave a key for you in one of our lock boxes and send a message with the combination. Look for this:

Keytab Entry:

The main entrance to the building uses a RFID entry system. The key card will allow you into the building and turn on the room’s electricity.  There is no code to enter, please just hold the key card near the number pad(near the number “8” or “0” works best), wait for the beep and then push the door open.

Reserving Tours and/or Scooters: READ THIS FIRST:

We can help arrange any tour. If you don’t see the one you’re interested in, just let us know the tour/date and we will call to arrange it. Feel free to take a look and use one of the contact methods below for reserving.You know by now that many things in Thailand have two prices. It can help to have a Thai voice call for you. Usually it can save you 100 to 200thb from their internet/brochure prices and we can explain where to pick you up (Saving us from getting a 7am wake up call from a lost driver!!).


SIM CARDS – We’ve recently switch all our phones over to Finn mobile.   They resell for DTAC (one of the big 3) and have huge discounts to help break into the market.   There are many “plan” options, but they are not contracts.   Its 1 month at a time, but much cheaper than the “tourist” sims at the airport and 7-11’s.    Everything is done in English and you can have them send a SIM card here so its ready when you arrive( takes about 3 days).  Try the link below:    (The “Lite Plus”  100mins, 15GB data, good for 1 month 159thb (~$5USD)

The water in the building is from our own well and filtered. It’s good for brushing your teeth and making coffee, tea, or cooking. There is also bottled water in the fridge for drinking. Please DO NOT throw away the empty bottles. You can return your empty bottles and take more from the stock at the bottom of the steps.


Please do not flush large amounts of tissue or anything larger (feminine hygiene products, diapers, baby wipes, etc)


There are laundry machines in our parking lot. They are usually powered off, so you’ll need to turn them on first. There is a power switch to turn on the machines on the wall at about eye level. The machine takes 2 (10baht) coins. Everything is automatic, please don’t push any buttons. They will go for three cycles on cold water and take about 1 hr. There is washing powder behind the machine. For drying, there is a drying area in the back of the building. If you prefer a laundry service, there are three on the next parallel road south, near the Birds Nest Cafe. Full service (wash, dry, fold) take most of the day, drop off today and pick up tomorrow.


There is a Trash/Rubbish bin in our parking lot next to the washing machines. Please take your bags of Trash/Rubbish out when necessary. We have scheduled pick up every other day.
