The SpaceThe house is surrounded by jungle and sits atop a pond (currently - January 2,16 - under maintenance). The most frequent expression from guests as they enter is ‘Wow’. It has the wow factor. The house is spacious, with three bedrooms (two of which are available to guests) and is linked to the outdoors by the deck over the pond and the outside gallery upstairs, running the length of the house and fringed with orchids. Guest AccessYou will have access to the entire house (except occupied bedrooms!), garden, and swimming pool. The room rates are per person and are totally inclusive: there are no extra charges. Interaction with GuestsGuests will be collected by the host from the airport or other place in Vientiane. If requested, the host will take guests on a guided tour of Vientiane. They will take aperitifs on the deck before dinner (world-famous G&T!) and dine with the hosts (Lao or international cuisine). Other notable Lao and expatriate guests may be present at dinner. Guests may take breakfast with the host and hostess, or privately, according to their preference. The NeighborhoodWe are 10km out of the city centre, in a rural village with a beautiful Wat (temple) and friendly neighbours. The village is developing as a residential area, but density is very low and natural vegetation still predominates, especially in our garden! This is still a very peaceful area, with the main sounds the noise of the birds, cicadas, waterfall, etc - as everywhere, there are cocks crowing and dogs occasionally barking. Getting AroundWe provide one trip into town and back per day, if desired, at a time to suit you. It may be with our vehicle (Toyota double-cab pick-up) or with a locally-owned tuk-tuk. Depending on time of day, expect the trip to take 30 minutes in each direction. Other Things to NoteOur intention is to provide a complete experience - living, local transport, relaxing, drinking, eating - in one all inclusive price. There are no extras, unless you want to come and go several times to the town.

The SpaceThe accommodation is spacious, the room is simple and clean, bathroom and toilet also. KING size bed and luxury mattresses very comfy allow you to rest and enjoy your days. I installed mosquito nets on every windows of the house: the amount of mosquito is very limited. The shared shower is equipped with hot water. There is no kitchen because it’s better to eating out to taste the local dishes and it is much cheaper to eat every day outside ! I have 1 cat, her name is Meow (means cat in Lao language). Guest AccessYou will stay in a room with your personal key so you can enter and leave any time you want. This room has : - A bed (180x200cm). - A 2-door wardrobe to store your belongings. - A shelf to store your clothes. - A modern air conditioner with remote control. - An extension cord with multiple outlets. - A table and 2 stools. - Two locks door for the bedroom. - Only a bed (160x200cm). - No storage, empty room. - A modern air conditioner with remote control. I do not recommend eating and drink inside the room (except water of course) because of the ants, in Laos those are red ants, they quickly invade your bed and bite ! I invite you to enjoy the ground floor : there are tables, chairs and even a sofa. You will have access to the whole house as well as equipment. Interaction with GuestsI live in the house but I work also so thank you to respect the schedules of check-in / check-out. We can always communicate by AIRBNB if you need some information, and of course when I get home too. The NeighborhoodYou will be really in the city center of Vientiane : close to all amenities because Vientiane is a small capital, beyond 3 km you are no longer in the center. Even for sightseeing or for dinning, you will have access to everything by foot, you will not even need to pay a Tuktuk, or rent a motorcycle ! If you still want to take a Tuktuk you find in the street 30 seconds from home. This is also the same street that you can get tickets to many city. Getting AroundIn Laos the streets have no address (only main road), you should follow the instructions in your confirmation by mail as soons as the reservation is confirmed. It is really important because you will not have access to internet if you've lost. Other Things to NoteFor your safety in Laos and mine every booking must be make on AIRBNB. If you want to stay a few extra days, you must modify your booking by yourself on the website. No cash with me. For every booking more than 7 nights you will get a 5% discount for your journey. I have two rooms so I can accommodate up to 4 people simultaneously. Be careful with some ads on the website (especially in South Asia) because mostly are hotels.

The SpaceThe house has two bedrooms with each a big bed. In addition, there is a small-sized bed in the large airy living room, which has a practical office area. All 3 rooms have aircon. There is a fully equiped kitchen, 1 bathroom (with warm shower), 1 toilet and two balconies (one with view on a fish pond). The house has a warm wooden floor and is equipped with cable TV and good quality wireless internet. Guest AccessWe should agree by mail on your arrival time and meeting place, when you come to Vientiane. Interaction with GuestsAt times, when the house is for rent, I will not be in town, so you will be engaging with Noy, who is organising this for me. He lives about 10 minutes away from the house. The NeighborhoodIt is a small residential dirt road type side street, just far enough from the 13 road to be quiet (except when neighbours have parties, which might eventual). Getting AroundThe house is just 500 m from Patouxay, where you can easily get a Tuk Tuk. But Vientiane is a small town, so you can even walk down to the Riverside in around 25 minutes. Other Things to NoteImportant: we had to realise the using aircon is quite expensive (I myself never do), so we would charge an additional 3 USD per day for each aircon, which you would like to use. This corresponds with the actual price for the electricity. You might ask Noy, if you need laundry. There are some restaurants and Cafe's in the area (Italian, German, Thai, Chinese-Vegetarian etc.).

Getting AroundWe are only 15 minutes away from the city center by motorcycle (or Tuk Tuk) ! We rent out motorcycles (6 euros/day) and bicycles (2euros/day) and can call a Tuk tuk from the village, for your convenience. Other Things to NoteAfter 30 years working abroad in different countries, we decided to settle in this little paradise. We built our property here and opened a small restaurant, with the different cuisines we had the chance to taste on our travels. Our objective was to find the right balance between our professionnal, social and personal lives. Therefore this restaurant is opened only on the week-ends or on booking during the week, which enables us to take good care of our hosts and get to know them– some became true friends- as well as giving us the time to fully enjoy our (early) retirement.

    The SpaceThe house is big. There are loads of bedrooms, loads of bathrooms and loads of space. The garden is fairly large too. I have a housekeeper and a gardener and the atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. I really want you to enjoy your time in Vientiane (and Laos, and, your whole trip!) and want to make you feel like you are visiting a family friend. I love cooking and can hopefully make you a breakfast you'll really enjoy, in a space you'll love, and be able to point you in the direction of interesting things to do in and around here. Oh and of course I have a big kitchen for teaching cooking classes which I hope you'll join. Guest AccessYou are a guest in my home, so you are welcome to relax in the sitting room, cook when there isn't a cooking class going on (and we aren't catering - but if we are, there are generally some good bits and pieces to taste), use the fridge, make yourself a drink, enjoy the garden, etc. The gate is kept locked at almost all times and so it's a safe environment for kids. I'm also a teacher so have loads of books and games for kids and adults. Interaction with GuestsI will be around and will point you in the right direction for anything you want. I really want you to enjoy your visit to my place. If I can't be around when you first arrive, my housekeeper will settle you in, and give you a key, but I'll do my best to be there for you. And you can call too with any problems. I will always stay at the house if I have guests staying. The NeighborhoodMy house is about a five minute walk from the Mekong river. I live in a quiet street just off a main road on the way into town. It's near the embassies for Myanmar, Korea, Australia, Singapore and various others. It's a great location and the garden supports many birds and butterflies. Always lovely to have your morning coffee surrounded by birdsong. Getting AroundI have one bicycle that you are welcome to borrow on a first come first served basis, but bicycles and motorbikes are easy to rent in town. I have an arrangement with a lovely woman who rents out new automatic Hondas that she will bring them to my house and deal with all the paperwork there which makes life easy. If you prefer, I'm 100 metres from the main road which has plenty of tuk tuks. We can also call a taxi if you want. Buses aren't so reliable yet. Other Things to NoteVientiane is a really foodie town (I guess in part due to the French influence) so I expect you'll want to eat out, but I also have take out menus if you don't want to go out and don't want to cook. I can point you in the direction of restaurants of various types, and for various budgets. I have three very friendly dogs and they'll want to get to know you when they first arrive. After this, they'll chill out. I offer cooking classes. Some of these are for local people who are learning to cook, some are kids cooking classes and some are If you are looking for a party town, Vientiane won't be for you, and my place won't be ideal either. If you are after a base to chill, to check out the city, to recover from travelling, to have some good food and check out the life in this most laid back of capital cities, I think you'll have a great time.

    The SpaceI love this part of the world and I want you to love it too. I do have extra mattresses and other rooms, if you have kids too - just let me know. I want you to feel at home in my place and to relax, read, cook, explore, play with my dogs, or take cooking courses. I run the courses with an excellent Lao cook so you'll have the authentic food, and be able to understand everything, come away with substitute ideas for the foods that aren't available at home and we can adapt the dishes to your taste. The cooking courses are run at an extra cost, but feel free to ask about anything you'd particularly like. They run on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings and cost $35 per person. We can also organise soap making classes a baci (traditional welcome, leaving, marriage, engagement, travel, etc.) ceremony for you, with a few days notice. If you have any special requirements, do let me know. I really want you to feel relaxed and happy during your stay. Guest AccessYou'll be our guest and you'll have access to the house. We want you to have a wonderful time here. Interaction with GuestsWe will be around for you as much as we can. There should be someone in the house almost all the time. We want to help you to get the most out of your visit so we'll help with ideas, thoughts, directions, transport and in any other way we can. I love helping people find the Vientiane (and Laos) that is not shown in the guidebooks. The NeighborhoodThe house is just a couple of hundred metres from the Mekong, which is great for an evening walk or a beer as the sun sets. It is also near most of the embassies. The road is almost always quiet, except for faint noise from the temple during festival times, but really near the main road that runs from the bridge connecting Laos and Thailand. It's convenient for town and easy to find. Buses run to town and out to the Friendship Bridge and Buddha park from the top of the road (about 100 metres) every 15 minutes and there are plenty of tuk tuks there too. There are lots of simple Lao restaurants in the area and within one or two kilometres are a large market, and French, Thai, MK, True Coffee, Mexican, Indian and pizza restaurants. There are also extensive options for take out. Vientiane is heaven for foodies with superb, but reasonably priced restaurants offering food from around the world. In the morning, the monks from the temple at the top of the road will be out collecting alms from local people who will set up the food and prayer mats outside their houses to welcome them and receive blessings. Maybe go for an early morning walk to watch the sun rise over the lake, see the alms giving and then check out the market as folks arrive to buy their food for the day. You could even join the monks for worship and breakfast at the temple. There are Lao herbal steam rooms around, but I like the one at Sokpaluang, just next to the temple and about 2 kilometres from the house. Set in a forested area, the herbs are picked each day and the steam room is a simple Lao structure with a room for steaming, an area for drinking their herbal tea, and an area for Lao massage. Most Saturday afternoons, the monks also hold meditation sessions at the next door temple. I have a lovely woman who will come to the house for a manicure and pedicure for just $6 and we can also arrange for you to have a massage at home from high quality, masseures. While you are here, have a hair wash - it is an amazing experience - 30 or 40 minutes of scalp, neck and shoulder massage, leaving you with shiny hair. Or learn how to make soap at my place - a charity provides soap to help in basic hygiene in rural Lao (and even in hospitals) so your contribution will further their work and leave you with a bar of hand made soap. And of course, we run the cooking courses - Lao food, western food and kids cooking classes here. I want you to have a wonderful time here. Getting AroundTuk tuks are easy to find just a short walk from the house, or we can call a tuk tuk or taxi to the house. We can also help you to rent bikes, if you prefer to get around that way. I have a bicycle you can borrow as well. The market, paddy fields, lake and Mekong are all just a few hundred metres from the house. Town is five kilometres away. Other Things to NoteThere are three very friendly, clean, loving dogs who live in the house. I can speak intermediate French and Lao.
