The SpaceWe call our homestay An Nhien villa which means 'peace in nature'. Da Lat city is famous for its beautiful nature and we are lucky to call it home. Unlike the city's centre, our place offers more of the green surrounding. You will find our villa located in a quiet resident area that is only 4km (about 15mins of enjoyable ride) to Dalat market (centre). The road is well paved and you will see less pencil houses and more wooden farm houses and valleys of flower farms as you get closer to our villa. An Nhien villa is right on top of the hill where you get a great view.
We serve the most healthy breakfast you could possibly find in town. The advantage is that we grow our own veggies without using any pesticides. Moreover, our lovely neighbors are raising chickens in the old fashioned way which means they are fed only corn or rice or anything they can find in the yard. The neighbors are also raising 3 children with only the salary of a taxi driver. We buy fresh eggs from them to help get the kids stationery for school. If you stay more than one night, the breakfast are different every morning. We would like to introduce some Asian dishes like chicken noodle, artichoke soup or fried rice etc. Let us know if you only want to stick to continental one.
Moreover, Dalat has seasonal fruits like avocado, strawberry, raspberry, passion fruit, plum etc. We know where it's best to get the nicest of these and we would like to introduce them to your breakfast. Let me know if u are keen for some smashed avocado on toast...for free! We can serve you lunch and dinner too if you let us know in advance (with a reasonable extra fee).
And of course breakfast would not be complete without a cup of Vietnamese coffee, tea or juice. We understand each person has personal taste for their drink, especially the morning one. Therefore, please don't hesitate to let us know yours whether it is iced coffee or fresh milk coffee or tea without sugar etc.
Your room will be about 20 square meters with a big window including private bathroom with hot water shower, clean towels and toiletries. The bed is 160cmx220cm in size so it is most comfortable for one to two adults. Your breakfast will be served in our garden with warm sunlight and bird singing on pine trees.
We understand privacy and comfort are most important when you travel, therefore, we will go out of our way to make you feel as much as home-alike as possible. We hope you will also find peace in the beautiful nature of Da Lat city! Guest AccessOur living room and reading foyer with lots of books are common space. The reading foyer has another balcony where you can enjoy a stunning sunset view. We welcome you to join us in our garden anytime.
You will have access to free and strong Wifi network and a cable TV in your room (HBO, Starmovie, Sport, etc)
We have a red Japanese postman's bicycle handy for you to do a quick errand/ joyful ride. We have 3 motorbikes for rent with a cost of 60,000VND/day (2.7USD) which you will find cheaper than anywhere else in the city. Laundry costs 30,000VND per kg. Interaction with GuestsThe villa is run by a dedicated housewife and a retired English teacher. We will be there to welcome you and will be around if you need help or to give you instructions of where or how to go for food/sightseeing/spa/golf etc
We are happy to help you book a tour or buy a bus ticket or arrange a taxi or any questions you may have. Just let us know! The NeighborhoodOur neighbors are the best you can ask for. Helpful, friendly and genuinely nice. And safety is guaranteed.
We are also surrounded with green pine trees. And if you wake up early in the morning, some days the fog would cover the area. Stunning view!
Our location is perfect for a jog/run in the morning. We also have many guests that come to Dalat for yoga or meditation. So please do pack your mat/running shoes! :)
There are a pagoda not far away, a truly Dalat style coffee shop which people gather to have coffee and watch their birds, many farm houses you can walk in and take photos.
Tuyen Lam's lake, Da Lat's most interesting lake, is only 3km away from our villa and a ride around the lake, stop by some resorts along the way for a coffee or visit the Buddhist temple is so much more convenient. Getting AroundWhen you arrive, most bus stations located in sub area. However, Phuong Trang or Thanh Buoi bus companies are two companies that offer a free transit to your hotel (not Sinh cafe bus company) so if you haven't bought your bus tickets you can try them out. If you have to take taxi to our villa, the fee should be less than 100,000VND (4.5USD).
If you arrive by plane, you can take the shuttle bus at the airport for only 40,000VND (1.8USD) per person. Then from bus stop, another taxi to our place for less than 4.5 USD. The fixed price taxi from the airport costs 250,000VND (11.4USD). We can help arrange an Uber taxi for only 200,000VND (9USD).
To get around, we would recommend you to take the motorbike because city's interesting places are quite in a distant ride. We have 3 motorbikes for rent with reasonable price. We can help you order a local cheap taxi or car with driver. Just kindly let us know! Other Things to NoteOur rooms don't need an air-conditioner because Da Lat's temperature all year round is about 15-20oC. It is more chilled at night and our warm blanket will be handy to keep your sleep tight. If in case you find it is hot (which is quite rare), please open the window slightly.
If you enjoy our home cooked breakfast, you can ask to have lunch/dinner/snack/supper to be served with an extra cost. The menu includes a wide range of Vietnamese dishes: banh xeo (Vnese pancake), pho (Vnese beef noodle), spring roll with green salads etc. Or Western dishes if you prefer pasta and tomato soup etc. Or vegetarian dishes. Menu and prices can be agreed before meal.
