I stayed with the Sokbo family for 5 weeks and had an incredibly wonderful experience. The property is beautiful and the rooms are clean and comfortable. Because the owners are on the premises, you get the kind of personal treatment not available at a hotel. Sokbo unhesitatingly assists with ALL needs (including hunting down medication if you run out). She is experienced in the tourist industry, so she can assist not only with local reservations and transportation (and discounts!) but also with any changes you may need to make to other parts of your trip. I think Sokbo’s favorite phrase is “no problem!” She is also an excellent cook and I highly recommend having a genuine Khmer dinner with the family at least once while you are there. She even offers a cooking class along with a visit to the local market. I wholeheartedly recommend the Natural Homestay. I will be returning to Siem Reap in January 2018 for two months and have already booked my room.
This was a great place to stay! I first stayed in February and made sure to stay again on my second trip to siem reap.
Sokbo makes you feel like one of the family, a very caring host. I really appreciated the effort she took to give me Cambodian lessons and help me find a bike to buy. Also she connects you with great tuk-tuk drivers and can loan you a Cambodian phone to find them when you are visiting the temples.
Aside from all this, the space is really beautiful. Rooms are comfortable and spacious, and it's awesome practicing yoga in the open air bit upstairs with a lush green view.
Thank you again!
We had a lovely three nights stay in this accommodation. The house is beautiful as was our room and the host went out of her way to make us happy and comfortable. We had a fantastic Khmer cooking lesson with our host in which she took us to visit the local market and then taught us to prepare a range of traditional dishes. The location is easy for pub street and local markets and the tuk-tuks which the host organises are very friendly and reliable with fantastic English. We would definitely recommend this for an authentic and convenient stay in Siem Reap!!
I stayed here in July for 6 days and it was absolutely heaven. The homestay was spotlessly clean, the room is cleaned and made up everyday. It is in a serene and beautiful open location away from the noise and bustle of roads, bars and big hotels. Into town was a pleasant tuk tuk ride and cheap, 2 dollars!! Eating at the homestay with Sokbo and her family was wonderful, because the food was delicious.... and the two children adorable.
I would recommend Sokbo's homestay without a hesitation and want to return there someday.
Sobko and her family welcomed us in their beautiful Khmer house eqipped with all comfort and enriched by the amazing design, the quiet of the neighbourhood and the wonderful breakfast she prepared for us. If you are looking for a quite place to rest after visiting the temples enjoing local culture, the natural Homestay is the perfect place. She also arranged for us tuk-tuk tours, motorbike rental and boat trip to Battambang.
