Amazing homestay in beautiful surroundings ”

Mai's homestay is just the perfect place to explore the beautiful surroundings of trang an. The place has it's own private mountain and river in the back yard! Mai's staff was just great! Sooo helpful with everything we needed - starting from cooking great food at any time, getting us a good price for a motorbike and booking us train tickets. We would full heartily recommend this place to anyone who wants an authentic experience in an otherwise pretty touristic area. Thank you guys! ❤️

Nice and quiet homestay in Trang An village”

The motorbike rental place next door was helpful and the homestay hosts can also coordinate bicycle rentals. You will need wheels to get around easily in Trang An. Closest sights are Mua Cave and Trang An Grottos. Mai’s Homestay is run by her daughters and they are absolutely lovely people. The family is welcoming and friendly and does their best to make you feel comfortable. I stayed in the 6 bedroom dorm room and the beds are pretty comfortable. The Homestay has some adorable cats and the neighbors have chickens and ducks. Not too many bugs despite the proximity of the river which was a relief. You can choose to have family meals for dinner which I did and it was very good. Breakfast was nice too!

Favorite Place I've Stayed in Vietnam!”

First of all, I've been in Vietnam for 9 weeks and this has been the best homestay! Secondly, I never write reviews but felt compelled to do so on behalf of the excellent experience I had at this place! Mai, as in the namesake of this accommodation, is the hard working, fun loving, matriarch of the family. Her, along with her two twenty something daughters, keep this place running smoothly. Mai only knows a few words of English but her daughters are fluent! Family dinners were my favorite! I've been to a few homestays where the actual local family doesn't eat with us- just the foreign guests. Here, Mai, both of her daughters, and occasionally her husband, all eat dinner with us every night! (Her husband will probably offer you rice wine!) They have lived in this village for generations so they know everyone! It's not uncommon for neighbors, friends and family members to drop by throughout the day. The dorm room is well kept with huge comfortable bunk beds! The bathroom and shower, just outside the room, are spacious, clean and there was always hot water! (PS. There is a Western toilet and tons of toilet paper available.) I could have easily stayed here for weeks!

Nice stay, huge room but a bit pricey ”

Very friendly owners. Family room was huge but not very cosy. I have to be honest and say that the food while freshly prepared didn’t really taste of anything. And I do think the price for the family room was on the expensive side compared to other home stays we have stayed in.
