Probably the nicest place I stayed at in Vietnam! Extremely nice, welcoming, and helpful host family, clean and spacious house, comfy beds etc. We were offered the bigger room for the same price as the smaller, because it hadn't been booked, and were offered coffee and sandwiches for the bus ride when we left. An experience you will not have in any hotel of the same price! The location right between beach and old town is prefect for everyone who can ride a bicycle (which are for rent there and pretty good) :) Absolutely safe town, also at night. Strongly recommended!

We absolutely loved staying with Linh, Quoc and their two beautiful little boys. My partner and I stayed in the upstairs room over looking the street for five days. This room had no air conditioning but is very tidy and comfortable. Although it was quite warm we had a fan and really liked the room because we could see the sunrise in the morning and could look outside and see the neighbours going about their daily business - certainly an authentic stay in Vietnam. The day we arrived I was terribly sick with food poisoning and Linh and Quoc quickly came to my rescue, ensuring I had medicine and everything I needed to make a speedy recovery. Although I spent most of the first day in their bathroom vomitting they were incredibly lovely and supportive and constantly checked on me to make sure I was ok. The home itself is quite large with plenty of space if you would like time to yourself - during the day we were alone in the house with other guests from around the world who were visiting, but for most of the time we rarely saw the other guests. What we loved about staying with the family was their beautiful nature, their kindness and willingness to share their life with us. Linh cooked for us on multiple occasions and they even arranged to have a keyboard brought to the house one night so that we could share our love of music. We played with the children, talked about our experiences and had such a wonderful time together. Linh and Quoc are extraordinary people, very loving and thoughtful and will go out of their way to make sure you are happy and at ease. Also, be sure to make a donation to their charity fund which assists local impoverished people. Linh and Quoc have hearts of gold and want to use their business to help others and to allow foreigners to experience Vietnamese family life. The houes itself is virtually equal distance between Cua Dai beach and the main town of Hoi An. We took a taxi to the beach or into town and it only cost about 50,000 Vietnamese Dong - this is about $2.50 Australian dollars. There is a cute little vegan restaurant not far from the house as well as a local market and a number of temples. It is a very safe area and we felt well received by the local people who were generally very friendly. I found it overwhelming at times in the larger town of Hoi An due to the constant push from local retialers to buy their products. If you are not interested in buying just smile nicely and say sorry and keep walking and you will be left alone to explore. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Linh, Quoc and the boys and we hope to return one day to catch up again and enjoy each other's company. Definitely an exceptional host,

Dear Linh, Quoc, Bill and Tony, We truly loved staying with you and sharing in your life. Thank you for being so loving and kind to us. We will never forget your warmth and the generosity you showed to us. Thank you so much. We can't wait to skype with you all soon once work settles down and we are back into our routine here at home. We miss you! Lots of love, Sarah and Ben

Mrs. Linh and her Sister are so friendly and helpfull! I sleept in the House from her Sister, what is just 5min from Linhs house far away. I saw both accomadation and they are same same :-)
Her sister so helpfull, if you have any problems or just questions about living in vietnam she will help you. The rooms are really nice and the best thing you stay not in a tourist area, that means that it is more quiet and you see much more from the real life.
In the end i spend 6 nights in there house and would go back every time.

So if you dont "like" the tourist area and you want to learn more about the culture of vietnam this homestay in your best choice!

I had the pleasure of meeting Ms Ngoc Linh during my recent stay in Hoi An. Her homestay is a lovely house on the outskirt of Hoi An, a perfect distance between the beach and the old quarter. Unfortunately, it was fully occupied with other guests so I wasn't able to stay there, but Ms Linh brought me to her sister's home nearby, located next to gorgeous rice padi scenery. A small house with a room on the second floor that has an attached bathroom and a good size, comfortable bed. It has two windows so plenty of fresh air. Very clean, completely relaxing and lots of privacy. There's a small kitchen on the first floor where you can prepare your own meal if you like. Ms Linh's sister and brother-in-law are nothing less than amazing. Very caring, charming and helpful. They will take care of anything you need, without a doubt. Often I would come back to my room and find a plate of fruits by my bed or they would come knocking on the door with local dishes for me to try. I certainly would not have enjoyed Hoi An as much as I did if I didn't stay with them. Truly a blessing. And even if you stay at her sister's place, Ms Linh will be checking up on you and taking care of anything you need. A lively, intelligent, and beautiful lady to care of you..what else could you ask for?? Thanks, Linh and your family for such a great experience!

Dear Linh Family

After leaving Hoi An, we continued our journey to Nha Trang, Dalat, Muine, HO CHI MINH CITY, THE MEKONG DELTA, then we left for 5 days in Phnom Penh. Then we returned to HO CHI MINH for 3 days before taking the train to HANOI where we spent our four days in Vietnam.

It is with sadness that we flew back to France.

We keep excellent memories of our stay in your home and in your city. Your warm welcome has helped us integrate well with Vietnamese life. We recommended your home to a few people we met. Anyway, we have your details, and we promise to pass them every time we meet people who are planning to leave for Vietnam and Hoi An.

We kept in touch with Micheline and Veyan Henry, who, too, are delighted with their stay in Vietnam. Right now they are in the south of France for about 10 days. Then they will leave for Quebec. Unfortunately, we do not have the opportunity to see them. We are in the north of France and we can not leave to join them.

We hope all goes well for you and your children are doing well.

We réadaptons gently to Western life. Life much more stressful than Vietnamese life. We really felt very smoothly wherever we went.

We wish you good luck and much success in your professional life, but also much happiness to all four and your family.

I only booked for 1 night but ended up staying 3. Linh was extremely helpful and understanding in letting me extend my stay.

Linh and Quoc have a beautiful house shared with their two sons. The location is extremely convenient. They are both extremely friendly and enjoy getting to know you and helping you with any queries you have. The rooms are comfortable and have everything you need.

Linh is also a great cook and it is great to be able to share a meal with the family over dinner.

I would recommend a stay in this beautiful house and will definitely stay here again if I am ever in Hoi An again!
