My girlfriend and I stayed here for 1 night, and am glad I didn't book more than that. The bungalow was good and very spacious with hammocks and comfy chairs. Not much to complain about there. The staff was the biggest let down, unfortunately. We arrived and were given no information about the surroundings. We asked to borrow some bikes,... More

We arrived here the second day of our holiday after staying for one night in hcm. It was great from the beginning! The bungalow is very cosy with a nice balcony with a hammock. We had a great time there with tanja and snow (the cutest little puppy). The atmosphere is great, because it is a small place you get... More

Dear value guest, Thank you very much for the positive reviews. I think you did a good decision to escape the big city of HCMC and come to the Mekong countryside to start your trip. Breathing some fresh air and being in contact with nature is essential to feel in holiday. We are working hard to make your stay a... More

We stayed here 2 nights. Not the easiest place to get to but that makes it all the more authentic. We took a taxi from HCMC airport to the bus station then a bus (125K pp) to Can Tho and a taxi from there to the homestay. Wonderful staff, 2 of which speak good English inc Tanja. Sensibly priced trips... More

Wonderful stay. Remote location but good for cycling. 3 good tours arranged here with 15% discount if you take all three - a tad on the expensive side for what they were even so. The market visit is unbelievably good. Plus Troang took us out for a 16km cycle round villages free of charge. Free fishing off side of walkway... More

This is not a home stay but bungalow/hotel accomodation run by a manager Tania who is very good and some local staff. It is rustic and is surrounded by water on all sides, the food is good and the bungalows basic but adequate. My stay was spoiled somewhat by a neglected little "pet " pig that they keep in a...

Be ready to be secluded near a remote part of the river. Your guests are your companions, especially if your travelling solo. Hosts were nice but felt a bit awkward for some reason. Like the homestay staff werent totally happy to be there. They definitely werent a family as far as I could tell. Take the bike tour, as it... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights here and felt it was a perfect way to experience the Delta. My criteria was to be off the beaten track, be on the river, have easy access to the floating market and be able to bike ride around the farms. Granted, it is rustic, but this is what we wanted. We had... More

After a week in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh we we're ready for some R&R, this was the perfect place for it! Lovely, helpful staff with a good tour of the floating market and land market starting at 5.30am and costing $12 each. There is a reason this is voted the best home stay in the Mekong Delta....
