I spent yesterday afternoon as guests of a Hoi An Homestay – Orchid Garden Homestay.
Orchid Garden Homestay is located on Cua Dai Road halfway between Hoi An Old Town and Cua Dai Beach. The homestay is a collection of 11 bungalows so it probably better classed as a boutique hotel or self contained units than a homestay. Of these bungalows 5 of them have a self contained kitchen if you wish to cook your own food.
The bungalows have cable TV in a lounge room with Vietnamese style lounge chairs.
Some of the bedrooms can be set up as either a double or twin beds but you should ask about this when you book.
Some of the bungalows have 2 showers one indoor and one outdoor and this is one of the bungalows individual charm each bungalow is different from the other.
There is a nice swimming pool in the homestay which would be very welcome in the summer because Hoi An gets hot. One thing I loved about the homestay was the food. Breakfast is included in he room rate and you can have a Vietnamese breakfast or Continental European.
Looking to go to the beach? You can use the homestay’s bike and ride to the beach or in the other to the Old Town. If you need some information the receptionists speak excellent English.
Rates at Orchid Garden Homestay range from US$40-70 per night.
