“Home away from home!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014

My wife and I came across the homestay website entirely by accident and decided to book a night and see what it was like. We stayed two nights, and wish we could have stayed longer. We have been travelling for a few months and to get to stay somewhere that really made us feel at home was brilliant.

We had a trip to the local market with Kham to pick up ingredients for a homecooked meal on the second night and were then walked through the cooking process. We got tuk tuks to and from the centre, though we could have hired a motorbike if we had wanted to. There is a fantastic little restaurant at the end of their road for typical Lao soup, and we ate there on both days!

Henri-Pierre and Kham have made a huge effort to make their beautiful home welcoming and we were not at all disappointed.

The bed was blissfully comfortable, the rooms had everything you could need and the toiletries in the bathroom surpassed what you generally get given in a five star hotel! We have already decided we have to come back and explore Laos more and will definitely be booking in again at the homestay when we return to Luang Prabang, as well going on the overnight village tour they will be offering once their new baby is old enough to travel with them!

(On this note, their newborn baby is the quietest baby ever, and we had wonderful nights sleep both nights we were there!).

We had a magical time staying with Henri-Pierre and Kham! We originally planned on spending just two days in Luang Prabang but after arriving and enjoying a wonderful home-cooked meal on their outdoor patio and hearing their stories about Laos we decided to stay for a full five days. Each day we rented their motorbike and rode into town or went exploring waterfalls and returned home to enjoy a wonderful Laos meal and great conversation. Kham and Henri-Pierre were dedicated hosts that went to great lengths to ensure we had a fantastic trip. They provided advice on what to do, lent us a cell phone in case of emergencies and graciously shared meals and insights to the local culture. The space is a bit off the beaten path, which we loved. It's a 15-20 minute drive into the city. It was incredibly clean and with fresh towels and great touches like fresh towels daily, water left by the bed and basic toiletries. If you're looking for a chance to learn about the culture, have an authentic stay in Laos and meet a wonderful family, this is a great option that I'd highly recommend.

We have started our bicycle travel in Laos from Luang Prabang. We have chosen this location and we have no problem with carrying our bicycles, taking a shower and any other needs. It was a perfect place for have a rest after long flight and only 5 km from city center and few minutes from airport. We have easily reached Luang Prabang sights by calm country road along Mekong river on our bicycles.
If you stay here you got full floor with separates bedrooms and two bathroom, but was really great is a big terrace. You could rest here, take a dinner and see a sunset.
On first floor there is a kitchen, in case if you want to cook by yourself.
This location is good for families who avoid a tourist crowded places.
Henri-Pierre & Kham is a nice couple and hospitable people. We get a lot advice about travelling in Laos from them, cause they working in tourist industry.
