The three of us stayed in a suite at or near the top of this guesthouse for two nights earlier this summer. From the beds, the rooms have a stunning view of the karst scenery on the other side of the Yulong River. If you stand next to the window and look to the west, you'll see the peaks rising up along either side of the river. In retrospect, maybe they were dragon-like. (The name of the river contains the character for dragon ("long").) It was great to just lie on the bed and read a book while enjoying the view. Some rooms do not face the river.

The property is managed by the family that owns it, who are friendly and helpful.

Our guest rooms and bathroom were basic, but clean and very spacious. Bare light bulbs hung down from the ceiling in the guest room and the shower (which had great water pressure) simply sprayed over the floor of the bathroom.

We had two satisfying meals. They were delicately seasoned and delicious, and, if you are there at the right time, we recommend the stuffed squash blossoms. (One of the interesting types of local cuisine is "niang"--which includes vegetables stuffed with a proprietary mix of ingredients.

But we preferred hanging out at the Giggling Tree, which is only about five minutes away by foot. The Giggling Tree has a nice casual outdoor eating areas and is great for breakfast or Western snacks--and their Chinese food is good too. Ecofarm is a good place to have a meal, but the atmosphere at Giggling Tree makes it a better choice for having a drink or reading a book.

I could have easily spent a week doing nothing and trundling back and forth between Ecofarm and Giggling Tree--a wonderful combination.

Room Tip: Make sure you face the river.

The service there is really tip top at the whole area. The owner's family has always been helpful. The same dishes made from organic vegetables are incredibly good. We also experienced the 'natural swimming pool' close to the eco farm. It's a great holiday.

Although the building is not yet completely finished, there’s no inconvenience at all! Nice rooms, amazing view, very very tasty and healthy meals and also the wonderful people around! We had really a great time there and can’t help thinking about going back soon again. The three days in Ecofarm were absolutely the highlight in our whole GuiLin trip. Thanks a lot Pan (Ecofarm’s manager) and your families. We will definitely come back again ;)

What a great concept. This small guesthouse offers very nice rooms with great views and hot showers, a good value for the price and the free bikes are a plus. We had a fabulous dinner there one night, but were a little confused by the average dinner the next night. Overall a great trip.

*The price listed on this site is incorrect- The rate if very reasonable.
The city of Yangshuo is a tourist destination for thousands of Chinese who come to view the karst hills, ride bicycles, float down the river on bamboo rafts and take photos in front of Moon Hill. But four kilometers outside of the city, near the landing where the bamboo rafts take off, the small, but multistory family run hotel… allows one a great view without the traffic and tourist crush. At the … we enjoyed the organic food fresh from the garden, the four kinds of home-mad rice wine, and the feeling of being invited to be part of the family. The hotel is not yet complete, and the hallway walls are covered with various notes in many different languages left by visitors from all over the globe. It was one of the friendliest places we stayed among tens of hotels all over Asia.
