We stayed with Kheang and Don for two nights with our kids (6&9) and had a great time. It was great getting to know people (besides tuk tuk drivers, like in the city) and our kids liked being able to hang out with other kids. We especially like biking up to the village Wat, talking with locals via Kheang's fantastic interpreting skills, eating her fabulous food and waking up to the sound of the countryside. You can hear the road noise abit, but it's fine at night. The accommodation is a hut with 2 double beds (or there is an additional room in the family home), with battery light (complete with disco setting!). We found it clean and comfortable. It is a homestay so obviously you have to be OK with sharing someones home - in this case the bathroom. It's a non-touristy, real experience of rural Cambodia. The only real down side for us was the unseasonably hot weather. Without power for A/C it was really hot, but then we had come from 15deg New Zealand.

I stayed at Rana for three days and had a great time. Since I work as a volunteer in Cambodia, I already know quite a few things about Cambodian culture and lifestyle, but this was a new experience for me. Rana Homestay offers a unique opportunity to experience life in the countryside. As they told me, it is not a hotel and it is not for everybody. So check their blog first before you visit. If it is for you, you will get a chance to eat some very good Cambodian food, to go on organized tours to see the countryside and talk to the locals and to talk with interesting guest speakers. During my stay I learned a lot more about Cambodian life, culture and politics and felt very welcome and at ease with Don, his wife Kheang and their kids Ra and Na. It is an experience I can recommend very much.

The most rewarding day of our entire trip to Cambodia. The delightful and informative owner Kheang takes you on tours of the village and farmlands (where she grew up before working for an NGO in Phnom Penh for 10 years), inbetween making delicious homecooked Cambodia meals (best Amok anywhere!). In the evening people from the village come to talk to you about whatever you want. 80% of Cambodia’s population are still subsistence farmers, and this place is unique in giving an insider insight into the realities of peasant life. We found it particularly insightful to have this perspective on the Pol Pot years – especially as most information on these comes from previously wealthy city dwellers dispossessed by the Khmer Rouge or the horrors of Toul Sleng and the killing fields. Be warned, this is not a luxury establishment. You’ll sleep in a (very clean) Khmer wooden stilt hut, wash in the family’s bathroom, and have to do without electricity – the government have only put it in on the other side of the road! That said, strongly recommend you take the short detour required off the road from Phnom Penh - Siem Reap to take this in.
