“It’s the very best place I stayed in Vietnam,” she assured me, a backpacker sharing her top tips as to the ‘wheres’ not yet totally toed by every second traveller. And she was spot on.

I think we found this place on lonely planet, emailed them and booked without any problems. They also organised transfer from dong hoi. The location is very rural, among rice fields and farms - which suited us well. The stuff speaks English quite well, the manager is very helpful and knowledgable, food is excellent and reasonably priced. There is a...

We spent three nights at the farm stay and enjoyed every single one of them. As many people have mentioned before the location is excellent - the view over the rice paddies is priceless and the close by national park and tiny villages with their friendly inhabitants are worth exploring. Just as much as the landscapes we liked the friendliness...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We, Ben and Bich, had an epiphany to start a tourism business in the middle of nowhere and ourfamily and the rest of the community thought we were mad. Now half of them think it was their idea. Our Mission statement was to create what we'd want if we were on holiday, in this then remote and still beautiful region of northern central Vietnam. Comfortable beds, nice views, a swimming pool, full bar, tasty food and top quality tours/activities. Winning formula, so we thought! We get a lot of customers looking for something different to a backpacker hostel scene, but with a fun atmosphere. Not a vietnamese hotel atmosphere either. Something unique. Something for everybody. Immerse yourself in the magic of remote rural Vietnam, between the coast and the mountains, in the northern Central region just now being discovered by mainstream tourism. Take yourself on a trip into a photographer's paradise. Our new French Colonial style accommodation, set in the idyllic surroundings of rice paddy fields on the edge of the famous Phong Nha-Ke Bang World Heritage National Park just off the Ho Chi Minh Trail, is the ideal base for wild adventures that you have only dreamed about... or simply take time to experience the local village life or chill by the pool. There are many tour and do it yourself options to keep you busy for a few days. Send us an email for more information. ... more   less
