The Activity


  • Experience life in a Vietnamese fishing village
  • Next to a 40 mile long stretch, powdery sanded beach with turquoise water
  • Relax at this beautiful place overlooking the tropical garden
  • Enjoy freshly squeezed juices and banana pancakes
  • Maximum number of guests is 2


We opened our doors in the summer of 2012 with the dream of helping the struggling fishing village community through employment and funding of which Thuan grew up amongst. The life of these villagers is harsh. Many are fishermen and have little choice but to go out to sea in the roughest conditions. Every year many are lost at sea leaving generations of families without the means to survive. With this place we have been able to create jobs and steady incomes for many families.

One of the houses is the Avocado house. The house is decorated with materials from the beach. It has a large double bedroom, air-conditioning, ceiling fan, television, refrigerator and an outside open-air private shower. The terrace with its huge lounge bed overlooks the tropical garden. Many hours can be spent relaxing here sipping on one of our freshly squeezed tropical juices. The place belongs partially to Huong. Unfortunately her husband and father in law drowned in the ocean in a fishing accident. She has two sons and can now support them with a wage and rent from the land.

Meet Sarah, Thuan and Than

Ask a question

Hello, we are Sarah, Thuan and Tan and together with the local villagers of An Bang we started this place with the goal to help them generating additional income. Besides the accommodation we started teaching English to the local children, are helping our neighbor to start her own bookshop, organize a tour with one of the fishermen in the village or can provide you with lunch or dinner cooked by one of the village woman.


We stayed here recently and we enjoyed it so much! It was quiet, cozy, personal and you had the feeling to see daily life of the people in this fishing village. The beach was beautiful and quiet with some nice eateries to enjoy the amazing food. Na, Tan and the rest of the staff helped us really well. Every morning and afternoon we received a refreshing juice. It's wonderful to hear the story behind this place and to see how all the local people are involved. I can highly recommend this nice spot!

We stayed at this lovely place for 5 nights. It was great to be in the middle of the little fishing village and have a nice beach close (only 2 minutes walk)! The homestay is really nice with friendly people and good service. Really nice to see that the owner is inviting the village people to make a living by doing work at the homestay (especially the cheap but oh so nice local dinner was amazing!). Helping the owner to give the village children English lessons was another absolute highlight of the stay!!
