“Great host and place”

The place is very nice and it is sure a great place to stay. The place is very quiet and peaceful. Mao has been very great host. He had arranged for an airport pick up and made sure that all our needs are attended to. The papaya he had provided us as a welcome present is very tasty! He sure knows how to make his guests welcomed. He wasn't able to meet us on the first day but he made a very great effort to meet us over dinner. He is a very warm and kind person. Thank you Mao for all your efforts to provide us with what we need. We had a great stay.

“Great house in a traditional Cambodian setting!”

My friend and I had a great time the two nights we stayed at the White House. We felt we had an authentic experience, and we met some great people we probably would not have in a hotel. Also, Mao took us to an amazing restaurant right down the street our first night! I wouldn't have changed anything about our short trip to Siem Reap, especially not where we stayed.

“Awesome Host!”

The property is really clean and has all necessary amenities required.
It has a kitchen, incase you feel like cooking your own meal.
Set in a really serene neighborhood, It makes you feel close to nature and set in a typical Cambodian backdrop.
It is pretty near to the Airport and is very accessible to the main road, which is a huge plus.
I would also suggest to look out for his property, which he has just finished building.

I'm really glad to have met a person such as Mao, as my host.
He is really humble and friendly person.
His English is fluent and he is really patient guy who bears a great welcoming smile on his face.

His neighbor happens to be a tuk-tuk driver and he has helped in arranging a ride for me.
Despite holding a Full-time job himself, he tried to manage a good amount of time to make sure my trip to cambodia was great.

“Awesome Experience! ”
Reviewed July 9, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My traveling partner and I had an amazing experience staying at the White House. The space itself was big, clean, and comfortable. We both loved how it was a little bit away from the tourists that were staying in the heart of Siem Reap. Mao himself is an amazing guy who did everything he could to ensure that we had a great trip. We loved going to the authentic Cambodian restaurant the first night we arrived. Our tuktuk driver, Alex, was amazing as well. He drove us around Angkor Wat for a day for a very reasonable price. As mentioned before, we loved that the house was "off the beaten path" a little bit because we didn't have much interest in late nights out in Siem Reap. It is about a ten minute drive from bars and restaurants, but Mao will definitely either take you himself or arrange a driver for you. We loved our Cambodian experience and would highly recommend Mao and his listings to anyone traveling to Siem Reap. Because of Mao's hospitality, we would also go back to Siem Reap in a heartbeat.

“Highlight of our entire trip!”
Reviewed June 21, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My family and I (five of us) booked to stay at Maos lovely little clean house and it was the best decision we ever made. He met us from the airport along with our tour guide Bunna and we immediately felt so welcome in their presence. Mao is such a kind, humble, generous man who looked after us more than he needed to. He took us to a local restaurant to try real Cambodian dishes and joined us to Angkor Wat. He dropped breakfast off for us so that we could sleep in. Bunna took us on a beautiful cycle ride through the rice paddies and to a floating fishing village which was such an amazing experience. When we went to catch our bus- Mao was there waiting for us with coffee and snacks and a kind goodbye. Our two days with Mao (and Bunna) were unforgettable and without a doubt the highlight of our entire trip in SE Asia. If you want to stay in the country, with cows in the garden and experience rural Cambodian life then this is the place for you. Not to mention having the pleasure of meeting Mao and hearing about his interesting life experiences. From reading his comment book in the house it is clear that everyone who has stayed at the Peace House have had unforgettable experiences too. Maos genuine kindness is really overwhelming. We cannot recommend staying here enough.

“A relaxing stay with an excellent host”
Reviewed May 7, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The property is located close the airport, though the host offers a pickup service. It is in a nice, tranquil location, close to some good, local restaurants and has everything needed; electricity, wifi, bottled water, hot shower, fridge, etc. Mao's neighbour, conveniently, is a tuk tuk driver who is available for transport to the city centre, tours around Angkor Wat and others, at a good price.

The highlight of the stay, however, is the host, Mao, who is very friendly, extremely hospitable and professional. Mao will go out of his way to make sure you have everything you need during your stay, and also help you to experience Khmer culture in an authentic setting. From taking the guests to the local Khmer restaurants, to offering boat tours on the Tonle Sap, to simply drinking a couple of beers up on the balcony, and inviting you to other social settings, Mao is by far one of the best hosts I've encountered on my travels.
