Although we'd class this more as a boutique guest house than a home stay, we had a thoroughly good stay here. The rooms are very spacious, with lovely touches like tea and coffee making facilities, fresh fruit and a safe.
It's quite a walk into Hoi An town (20 - 30 minutes at a gentle pace), but it is a very pleasant walk, especially if you follow the path by the river for at least part of the way. Taking one of the complimentary bicycles makes even lighter work of it. Don't let the distance from town put you off staying here - if you don't want to walk or bicycle, taxis are cheap and readily available. Also, there are some nice restaurants very close by on the river front.
The complimentary bicycles really are worth taking advantage of though - cycling in Hoi An was easy and we always felt pretty safe, because traffic is much lighter than in the bigger cities. We had a great day out on them, cycling to the beach and then to the nearby Herb Farm and through the rural farming landscape. Once we got off the main road and on to the rough tracks between paddy fields, we hardly saw anyone else beyond the local farming community and the only traffic was one or two scooters. It was idyllic.
There is a lovely pool with sunshades and each room also has it's own private seating area. We ate here on one night of our stay and had a very enjoyable meal. The staff were exceptional - nothing was too much trouble for them, they were all super friendly and helpful.
