An over night stay at this place was part of our 2 weeks tour package. Though our travel agent sent me the itinerary, I did not research on any of the destinations I was sent. We are a family of 5, parents and 3 children ages 7,9, and 11. Upon hearing the word, "home-stay", I was a bit worried because we travel with small children! However, upon arriving at the place and were shown to our rooms/house, we were so impressed and rather surprised! It's really an understatement to call it a "home-stay". It is too luxury to be called such name! it felt like a very upscale private residence in a charming farming village to me! We loved every thing about this place, while our children loved to explore around and all the dogs that there. It was very peaceful. Our children enjoyed the bicycling tour around the village, seeing old houses, rice paddies and other farming crops. They loved the fishing trip and kite flying. The staffers were so nice, would cater to your needs though they can't speak English. The owner's brother works there and he's 1 of the most down to earth guys ever. He spoiled our 3 children with his attention, his English was ok.
The place was very charming, peaceful and clean. We had the whole house to ourselves, my husband and I slept in 1 big bedroom while our 3 children slept in another just across the hall. I enjoyed walking around the garden before exercising and breakfast. Wish I had a place like that! Over all experience was great! Would stay here again and again, and highly recommended!
