The owners Moon and Lyly were two of the nicest, cutest and fun people we have ever met! You can tell they both really love being hosts and want to do everything to make your stay the best it can be. The room was great, over looking the river, very big with ensuite. The breakfast was quick and very tasty. You must try their Pina colada, sooo yummy!! They will give you all the recommendations you need and book a taxi or any tours for you. It's the most welcoming place we have stayed in Vietnam, maybe even in the world!! I can't recommend it enough! Thank you so much. We miss you already! Love Michelle and Paul
Funny Monkeys was a random choice for me, but turned out to be oh-so-good! ... I was warmly greeted and all of my small needs were immediately met .. The room was clean and spacious, with a wonderful view for the river .. couldn't ask for a better location .. I spent the afternoon swimming in the river with local kids, then ate a good meal with the sun setting and reading a book .. very happy with the stay. Definitely recommended to all passing through.
Talk about funny, this place is really worth the money!
We wish we could have stayed longer - the only reason why we didnt was because we were short on time. The room was beautiful and the views were absolutely phenomenal... The beds were extremely comfy and large. Shower is great. Hot water is good as well.
Moon and Lyly were such amazing hosts and one of the friendliest we have met in Vietnam. They would socialise with us whenever we were sat around, they told us all about the local food and bars, they gave us advice about things to do in Phong Nha and beyond. The food at the stay was great (try the snakehead fish soup!!!!) and cocktails were also great (Pina colada was awesome!!!).
This is definitely a place for any kind of traveller - families, couples, or solo. STAY HERE!
If we are ever back in Phong Nha, we will be staying here again. Thank you Moon and Lyly!
Good location, great local food, nice big room and a lovely view. The perfect homestay. What made it even more special were the hosts. Lyly and Moon made me feel like part of the family. This one of my highlights of an amazing trip to Vietnam. You definitely will not be disappointed if you stay here. I hope to come back one day.
Serendipity is my guide...directed me to Funny Monkeys on the river in Phong Nha. An exciting, wonderful choice. Too relaxing, perhaps, as my initial three-day booking became five...then seven...nine! “Far from the maddening crowd”. Delicious breakfast choices included. High room ceilings and cooling AC. Dinner and drink choices available. Easy walk to “downtown”. The caves naturally are main attraction. However, for this solo septuagenarian wanderer it’s a too tempting stay longer location. Two monkeys - LyLy and Moon - and hard-working Buffalo brighten and increase the already natural beauty. An unforgettable “forget everything” homestay.
