A wonderful small property for travelling overseas. Rooms are tidy and clean, services are excellent and the views are fantastic. I would love to recommend this to my family and friends, it is a place worth going back again.

During our stay me and my fiancée enjoyed the home-made food and drinks of reasonable price, went to swim in a nearby peaceful location, and simply took some rest. This place is very peaceful and suits for both active and less active people due to its location only 2km from the city center. The place is way better than any other place in the way too noisy city center. The host are warm and welcoming and willing to listen to the visitors' opinions and wishes. Due to the facts that I have stated above I sincerely suggest lodging in this place instead of any of the other places available in Yangshuo. A really pleasant and exhilarating surprise to have found this place after searching through so many other places before. Been there, seen that! Wishing all the best to everyone and always, John and Hui!

Thank you to all of the "The Stone Bridge" host members for a lovely and enjoyable stay in your caring. See you guys again soon!

great trip to the yangshuo valley. The stone bridge was wonderful. service was top. couldnt have asked for anything better. I was a single traveller and it really did feel like a home away from home. The owners were very nice and made the stay extra special - food was great, views were breath taking. Will definately be going back there for sure and will definatley be spreading the word.
Cant wait to go back with my partner.

The Stone Bridge "Home Sweet Home in the Valley"Are you looking for the Countryside Experience in China? YANGSHUO has it -Glorious Karst Mountains set in rural farmland.

Days are the time for exploring the area in all its wonders and the nights are for eating drinking and having a great time. When it’s time to rest and get a peaceful night’s sleep, it’s time to leave Yangshuo’s rather loud club and party noise and Escape to the quiet Village of ShiBanQiao aka Stone Bridge Village. 20 min walk from West St / 5 min bike ride / 2 k north of town and your home :)Once well rested and after a terrific breakfast, hosts Jessy and ahLong are only too happy to hand out advise on local and regional travel.
