Owen Bell is the owner of TripTide NT Homestay. He does day tours out of Nha Trang, but he also arranges custom tours of the back country in Vietnam, and our experience was top notch. We are two 60+ women who really enjoyed the wealth of information that Owen provided to us on the wonderful country of Vietna, and its...

If you want to visit Nah Trang, but avoid the tourist scene, then this is the place to go. Situated north across the river, the house is in a quiet part of the town, just a 2 min walk to some of the best and freshest street food. Owen and Mai are great hosts, will help you with anything -...

I have travelled to Nha Trang on seven different trips. I stayed at Owen's and Mai's homestay for 5 nights on my most recent visit. I am very happy that I chose this option rather than a typical hotel stay. The location is a nice change from the more "chaotic" tourist area of Nha Trang. It is a very short...

As usual, a great and clean place to stay. I love the location. It's far enough off the beaten path so that you're not hounded by street people selling things although some people like that. Also, the restaurants near are more authentic than those more expensive, western style bars and cafés in the main tourist area. One bus from here...

We were fortunate to stay with Owee (a Canadian) and his lovely Vietnamese wife Mai for two nights (2/3 Jan) at their homestay in a quiet area of Nha Trang. Their house was very clean and the accommodation was spacious including bedroom, separate shower room with toilet and a small kitchen area. Mai's breakfast was great with fresh produce and...

Thank you for the positive review. Perhaps the other review was an effort to simply lower our Tripadvisor rating? It was a pleasure to have you stay with us. Hope to see you again.

Thanks for giving me reason to respond. Firstly.... Thank you to all the others that offered us compliments, It was a pleasure to host you. As to this review........
