We spent four nights here and really enjoyed it. It's a nice, quiet place away from the centre. They have some really nice dogs that follow you when you go out.

Next door there is a great place
to eat.

Really nice place, ran by friendly and helpful owners. Nice setting just by the river, the bungalows are the best rooms available here. Good food and drink, relatively low in price.

Would recommend to anyone who wants to be a bit further away from the main area of Vang Vieng... it's much more chilled and relaxed!

Planned to stay 3 nights and stayed longer with a tough decision to move on to our next stop. The honor system was used for meals and drinks and worked really well. Restaurant serves excellent Laos dishes. Great staff who were attentive and helped us book all types of tours, excursions and tickets for similar or cheaper than in town. Bungalows are very clean and well equipped with hot or cold water as you choose, also c/w large mosquito nets on the beds and fans in the rooms but it cooled off at night by the river so no need for air con. The gardens are really lovely, including a small private area across the small bridge. Very peaceful with a nice set up with private balcony bungalows with great views of the river and mountains. Across on the quiet side there was a funeral going on next door so it was louder than normal but overall a great choice. We took the free walk bridge across the river and enjoyed the walk along the river and views along the way. Good food in the restaurant and the sweetest little kittens ever! We named them as they took up residence on our balcony before we left. We took advantage of the laundry service and were pleased with the results. Wifi only works in the restaurant and has a strong signal but it was nice to have a break from that so I didn’t mind that it wasn’t in the rooms. The ever-present rooster was crowing but that is constant in Laos. Close access to Blue Lagoon, cave exploring and hiking to the top of the mountain for the viewpoint, etc. Much quieter than on the main side of the town and was excellent value for money.

Thanks Joe for your hospitality and the great stories! Would definitely stay here again – highly recommended.

Vang Vieng has a long history of being a party town but this has quieted down some in recent years. We loved it for all the outdoor adventure and beauty that it has and would suggest that they market it as such and kill off the party scene label and rap. There are still parties if you look for them and they aren’t hard to find but there is a lot to do that doesn’t involve “happy” drinks or tubing down the river. If we’re ever in Laos again we’ll probably be back.

Room Tip: Pick a room with a view - you won't be disappointed!

We arrived into town at 9pm on New Year's Eve. It was a horror of yellow tourist signs and drunk people everywhere.  It was dark and we had no map but eventually we found the river and crossed it with a hope for some peace.  Maylin was really lively. The hosts even opened the kitchen so we could eat.  

80,000kip for twin (room 25). 

PROS
Great views
Relaxing atmosphere and lovely gardens
Brand new rooms (we were the first to stay there) 
Clean place 

CONS
Standard poor shower pressure
Washing was relatively expensive here
