We are travelling with children, aged 6 & 9. We really enjoyed our visit at Farmstay and even prolonged our stay with one day! The place in itself is great and the location at the countryside is lovely! You can use the bikes at Farmstay for free. We cycled to Son Trach on a tandembike with seats for the kids....

After many visits to the Farmstay (referred to as a repeat offender) I'm always amazed at the growth and expansion upon every visit. New things all the time. Movie hall, live music etc. nothing stays the same and always gets better. Great food, I had a chicken noodle veggie combo that wasn't on the menu but they substituted with no...

We visited Phong Nha and booked a national park tour with the farm stay via email. They offer you great information via email that really set our hopes high for the tour and the added info on the actual tour when we arrive. However, it turned out it is no longer them doing the tour and that it is indeed...

MohamedHayek, It's a shame that the 1 day National Park Tour you did booked through us, didn't live up to your expectations and we greatly appreciate your feedback on this. In our email correspondence, we did state that we ran the National Park Tour, "in house". We apologize for this but recently there were changes made due to effects outside...

I went there with my family in the summer time. this place was amazing. the best thing is that most of the staff are local and are there to learn English by talking to tourists. the trips that they put together and what you can choose from was really good. if you are not in very good shape then there...

We had a wonderful few days at the farmstay and were immersed in real Vietnamese country life. Surrounded by rice paddies, buffalo and the graceful toil of farming life the farmstay has everything you could need. Their tours are excellent and another day we made use of free bike hire and did our own. The final day I spend sunbathing,...

Overall we enjoyed our stay. The room and the staff were a great part for a pleasurable experience. On day one we took bikes into town to visit the cave. The management needs to spend some time making sure the bikes, though old, are in tip top shape. The seats on both of our bikes would not stay up which...

The atmusphere of farmstay is very good. It is located outside of the city with a beautiful view in a green enviroment. But the location is also a disadventage. The city center is to far a way to walk there. The food was ok, but no highlight. The staff of the restaurant needed a lot time to realize you. The...

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
