I just loved this homestay. It was one of the most peaceful times we had in Vietnam. Just a beautiful setting, very rustic. Trung and his family make you feel so at home. We spent a lot of time snoozing in hammocks and then cycling and walking around the island. The meals were a highlight, beautifully fresh and stunningly prepared. Highly recommend this homestay.

Room Tip: The rooms are simple but comfortable. I found sleep quality really good just because the setting was so peaceful.

Not a homestay in the traditional sense, rather a lovely family-run guesthouse in the countryside on an island opposite of Vinh Long. The family is very friendly and let us help prepare spring rolls for dinner. The rooms are spacious and shared bathrooms and showers (hot) are clean. We stayed for two nights and spent a whole day cycling around the beautiful island - it was lovely. The owner can help you to arrange a trip to the floating market for $12 as well as transportation to / from the island. Highly recommended!

Stayed 1-night and wish it could have been more. Our room was quite big with an en suite. No air conditioning although electric fans and a mosquito net kept any critters at bay. The location (adjacent to a Mekong waterway) is brilliant - you can watch the boats travel by as you sip a cold drink. We had the opportunity to help prepare the evening meal which was excellent, as was breakfast. It appeared that the hosts ability to speak English was limited - although much better than our Vietnamese. This led to much hilarity on both sides. All in all, a very well run homestay in a brilliant location. We highly recommend the homestay, particularly to small groups of travellers - we were eight in all and had a great time.

We visited this homestay as part of a cycling tour of the Mekong Delta. It was a lovely way to see this region and we were really happy with the quality of accommodation.

This place is run by two brothers and their families. It's mostly in one big old house that's divided into different sections, with a number of little buildings around it. The house has a lot of memorabilia from the war on display. Beautiful spot, accessible by boat and with lots of fruit trees around.

The room was a pleasant surprise - private room with double bed (we did see four-bed rooms there too though). Looked beautiful, with dark wooden walls, high ceilings and a mosquito net over the bed. No A/C but fan is provided. Toothbrush/tooth paste and soap provided (in the cupboard). Bathrooms are in a separate building, domitory style.

They provide all your meals and you can go into the kitchen and sit down with the family to help make the food. It's good fun. Food was perfectly good quailty, set menu style meals. Drinks cost extra, as with everywhere in Vietnam but they had a good selection of beers and non alcoholic drinks. While there was another family there, we were set up at a separate table in a pagoda on the other side of the house. I don't know if it was set up that by the request of our guide or the other family but we thought it might have been nice to eat with the others, instead of totally alone but maybe you can request that. One of the women makes these adorable figures out of cucumber which sit on each plate of food at dinner. A fisherman was on the plate of whole fish with the end of his fishing line attached to the mouth, a figure carrying baskets of rice was on the rice plate, and a man in a row boat was with the spring rolls. A fun and personal touch. They were so cute!

For breaksfast, you get a mixed spread - some fruit, some cooked things, bread and spreads, and local coffee. The family who run the place have varying English levels so we muddled through but it was worth getting an explanation for how to make the coffee.

We found this a great way to eat local food (they ate the same as us), see it being cooked, meet some local people (we even met the grandparents) and experience something kind of authentic in a slightly rustic but very comfortable setting. A break from the usual tourist trap in many popular spots in Vietnam.
