This place is definitely a change to escape Hanoi's madness. Beautiful place in the middle of the Rice peddles. Although you have to pay more than you will do on average in Vietnam. For the same quality etc we have paid a lot less during our trip. The national park trip is definitely a interesting trip IF it would only... More

Luckily for our guests staying with us, it really is a "Beautiful place in the middle of the Rice peddles that you won't find on average in Vietnam." We created what we'd expect if we were in Vietnam on holiday and looking for a great experience. If you are referring to the same quality etc of the rooms that you... More

Oh, this place was a treat after having been on the night train from Ha Noi! They have hammocks everywhere and we spent the first day just swinging in them. Apart from that: Bathroom's basic, but then again it's a farmstay, bed was comfortable, the people running this place are nice and obviously and REALLY care for the community. We... More

Great to hear you enjoyed your say. The plain bathrooms are being revamped in October. Renovations will start in the 1st week of October as at the moment the en-suits have a shower, toilet and a basin and mirror, they are soon to be a lot more upmarket as we are finding that a lot of our clients are reqesting...

We were simply in awe in how relaxing this place was. It's an open space filled with young couples, families, and solo backpackers, those who seek to recharge their batteries and those who wanted to explore some epic caves. You won't find belligerent drunk students partying into the wee hours here (or at least, we didn't). They were really helpful... More

It's great to hear that you appreciate what we are offering at the Farmstay. We created what we'd want if we were on holidays in Rural Vietnam. The Cafe you mention down the lane is the Red Flower Cafe (English Translation) but we call it Ong Dai's coffee shop. Ong means Old Man or Grandfather and Dai is the name... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and did some tours in the surroundings. We definitely recommend visiting Phong Nha cave and the dark cave. We were a bit disappointed by the paradise cave. Bit of a tourist trap and very crowded. The farmstay is beautifully situated, great starting point for bicycle trips AND with a great view all by itself... More

We arrived as a family with two boys aged 5/7. We absolutely loved our time here. It was so relaxed, friendly and cool with a good mix of travellers from other families with kids to backpackers and friendly expat staff. The area is wonderful to explore by cycling or motorbikes and I can't recommend enough visiting the wild boar eco... More

Arriving late in the evening it was a relief to be shown to my gorgeous ensuite room where superb linen and bedding encouraged me to a quick and restful sleep.

Disclaimer, it can be challenging to get to the farmstay but the trip has been 100% worth it. The setting is breathtaking and the staff are helpful and knowledgeable about everything Vietnamese!

We stayed here for a couple of nights while visiting the caves. The farm stay has a great location out next to the rice paddies with a view of the hills beyond.

The building is great and the setting is amazingly beautiful. Movie night is fun, some of the food is very good (but overall not great by Vietnamese standards). If you contact the farmstay, you'll probably hear that they "don't cater to backpackers," and because of this, I expected a pretty professional staff. What I encountered was a catty, backpacker-hostel-type staff... More
