This place is still a hidden treasure and perfect for all who

- don't need to be among 10000 other tourists on pub street every night,
- want to dip into Cambodian and Khmer culture and still
- maintain a high (western) level of quality and comfort.

6 km away from the town centre you will find the villa in a newly building neighbourhood among rice fields. The rooms are large with big comfy beds. Having hot shower and possibly air con where most of the neighbours can't afford electricity speaks for itself. There are many more details that show how well thought out this place is given the circumstances. However you should be prepared for some typical Cambodian noises, like heaps of dogs, roosters and the occasional wedding or funeral music starting at 4 a.m.

Anyway, the best reason to choose this place is its people. As said before Dani is a master Khmer cook. We regretted having had our dinner out in town once. Not to mention all the additional services provided, be it laundry, market orders or buying the onward bus tickets for us. All will be done at the best prices available in town.

Her German husband Erich can give all advice necessary for tour planning and is absolutely transparent to explain why he suggests this or that. If you have been scammed just once during your trip you will understand how relaxing this can be. It already started when we arrived one day earlier than booked and still had everything we needed with just one call two hours prior to arrival. Also the private tour to the Tonle Sap he organises is scamfree and cheaper than the same tour in town.

Last but not least primary Tuktuk driver (Thun) Boréy can assist you with his very good English to readjust tour plans on the fly and would be a good temple guide himself (he proofed it on the lake) if there was no horrendous corruption to get a licence. You should consider booking him for day trips, we did it and still kept our 50$ p.p/day budget. All inclusive.

Thanks to all this we had perfect 4 days in Siem Reap. Try this place out as long as it stays this way, but be sure to book in advance. Almost no Tuktuk driver will know this place even if they say so.
