Tony and Nuna, Upcountry Bungalows

Tony Milton was born and raised in California. He grew up on the Southland beaches and built custom homes throughout Southern California. Always interested in the arts, he made and sold prints and sculpture as well for most of his life. He has traveled widely and also collected and traded in tribal art for many years. He lived in Santa Fe, New Mexico from the late 1980s until retiring to Thailand in 2006. He still makes art, but mostly relaxes around the resort and lets Nuna do most of the work.

Tony and Nuna, Thailand New Years Eve LanternsNuna (Thanatcha Kaewkantha) was born and grew up in Thoeng distict and farmed with her family until her teen years.

The hosts are both entertaining and do their best to ensure their guests have a memorable time in the mountains of the North.
