The Haven Guesthouse is in the Village Bai Xep, which is a small fisher village with very friendly locals. There are hardly any tourists and you can relax from all the motorbikes, horns and noisy things. From the beach you can either swim or hire a round boat (kind of adventure, try to paddle yourself! ) to get to a small island with a private beach and nothing else.
The guesthouse is located directly at the beach. The relaxing area is very comfortable and you can spend the whole day with just doing nothing. The dorm is very clean, modern (quiet AC, 2 lockers) and comfortable (perfect mattresses).
The owners Rosie and Huw do everything to ensure that you have a pleasant stay and even take care of you if you are sick (like we were). Like the rest of the staff they always have a smile on their face which brings you in a happy mood. Apart from them, there is the cutest and funniest dog in whole Vietnam, Haven!
The only negative thing is the food. It was so good during our stay that we probably have to make a diet to get rid of the additional kilos.
All in all, these were the best five days we have spent in Vietnam and we were very sad to leave. We can definitely recommend this place and will come back if we go to Vietnam.
Thanks Rosie, Huw, Haven and all the others! We hug you and hope to see you again!
