“Happy to find this place”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

I stayed in Tho an Hoa home.
I really liked there. I was happy to find a homestay in Vietnam and it turned out it was one of the best place to stay in Hoi An. Family is lovely and helpful. They house is little bit out of town centre but for me it was positive thing. Near by are nice small roads to cycle around. Nice quiet place. I reccomend.

Really relaxed place to stay. Linh and her family are really friendly, I was invited to a family wedding the first evening I was there! They are at work during the day, and just do normal family stuff in the evening. Linh has great advice but doesn't try to sell you anything. Hoi An is a lovely place to visit and the homestay is a great place to stay for a while. I ended up staying two weeks.

There are only four rooms, so it's best to book early. It's down a small road off the main Cua Dai Rd, so it's nice and quiet. Hire a bike from Linh to make it easier to get to town and to the beach. There are restaurants and a small market nearby.

I ve stayed in Linh's house for about a week, I got single room with fan and shared bath. I ve really enjoyed my time in the homestay, family is very nice and friendly and Linh extremely helpful.
They have bike for rent 1$ per day, you can use the kitchen if you like (Linh always prepare me coffe in the morning which I ve became addicted;)) and hang out in the leaving room with them in the afternoon when they come back from work! The house is in the perfect position, between the beach(10min. bike) and the beautiful city of Hoi An(also 10min. bike). What can I say more?? Thank you very much to make my stay in Hoi An so relaxed and fantastic, I suggest Linh's house to everyone who wants to escape from crowd hotel in the city center and have a small taste about great Vietnamise people(also great food, she is a master chef)!
Grazie Mille!

Stayed here for 2 nights would have been longer if they were not booked (do this before hand as they are always busy). Rooms are comfortable and homely, shared bathroom was clean and tidy. Communal area was welcoming, Mrs Linh the host speaks excellent English and does all she can to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Note this is much more of a homestay than what is typically one in vietnam (ie a Vietnamese family running a hotel) Having a washing machine and kitchen is a massive bonus. I stored my bike and luggage with them for a few days and it was no trouble at all. It's a bit far from the town but bicycle hire is cheap and easy here. Recommended

Room Tip: The big room with the garden and A/C is the best deal

The homestay was amazing! We had such fun. The family are the nicest people ever, so genuine and will help you with anything! They speak english well, and are so interested in getting to know you.

The room are a good size and very clean. The bathroom is shared, but there is never a queue to use it as there are only 8people maximum at one time in the home.

Location is good, and you can rent a bicycle from them very cheaply.

Thank you so much for our stay Linh and Quoc!

Sometimes in Asia, so-called homestays are basically guesthouses with 10 rooms, that's not the case here :) Loc Phat is a lovely homestay with the sweetest Vietnamese family.
Linh is great and really helpful, she organised and booked loads of things for us.
It's a bit difficult to find, the address on their website is not exact , ask for more details if you arrive on your own.
There are only 3 or 4 rooms so book ahead cause it's often fully booked.

We had a great stay, Linh is a wonderful and caring host. She helped us arranging trips and helped my friend when he got sick. We learned a lot about Vietnamese culture and had a great stay.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Loc Phat Hoi An Homestay Villa is run by Nguyen Thi Ngoc Linh, or Linh for short, whose family has lived on the same property for 4 generations. It’s named after my sons, Phat (which means development) and Loc (Luck). My roots stretch back to a small fishing village near Hoi An beach, while my husband’s family has lived on the property I now operates from for over a century. Linh claims to have established the first professional homestay in Hoi An and everything I has learned during my time working in hospitality is visible in the day to day going-ons of the Villa. Stay for a night and you will notice the family’s impact on every aspect of life in Loc Phat. Linh’s children, nieces, and nephews run around and play with their toys, my father-in-law stands aged and smiling as security, my sister greets you from behind the reception desk, my sister/brother-in-law serve you a complimentary breakfast, and my aunt will clean your room. In fact every employee of the homestay is a member of the extended family. ”We respect everything we have, because we are very lucky to have it” The homestay is more than just a business for us, it’s a way of life. The Homestay Villa has recently added brand new buildings to its complex, so visitors no longer live within Linh’s home, we have our own beautiful modern private rooms to retire to, all built around the tranquil garden. However interaction with the family is still a large part of the experience, and any guest who wishes to sit down for a chat or simply observe is greeted with open arms and a smile. Linh is an intrepid and well versed cook, and I exhibit my skills for the dinners I enjoys cooking for my guests for someone stay in the Villa are looking forward to have cooking class you will be composed of Cao Lau noodles (made from a secret recipe that is known to only one family in Hoi An), green mango salad, fresh spring rolls, and the famous Hoi An pancakes……….. with Linh for a homecooking class. Linh also takes great pleasure in talking with my guests and spends hours of my day interacting with anyone who has a question or is curious about the Hoi An way of life. I will organize any manner of trip for her visitors, from a excursion to a lantern making shop, a trip to a local market for ingredients used in the cooking class, or mundane things like arranging taxi service to the airport…………etc. The Homestay likes to give back to the community and every year Linh and my husband sponsor the education of two children, one from Linh’s fishing village and one from Hoi An. Since there is no such thing as free public school in Vietnam many children, especially the third or fourth born in any family, are in danger of missing out on a formal education. Linh was one of only five children to go to school in her village, so she has a deep empathy for the plight of uneducated children in the region. In addition the homestay also gives away a bicycle to one lucky child at the end of every year. If you haven’t already gathered we were charmed by Hoi An, Loc Phat Hoi An Homestay Villa, and the family living there and operating it. If you want to experience an authentic slice of Vietnamese life within Hoi An City, book a stay at the Homestay Villa. You will be welcomed to the family with big smiles and open arms. ... more   less
