We stayed with Kham and Henri for 9 nights during an extended trip through Laos with our two children (aged 5 and 7). We love the house so much that we have spent several afternoons here rather than walking around town or going to cafes. We arrived by slow boat from Pak Beng and Kham arranged with our guide on the boat to have the boat van deliver us here and she was here to meet us. She spent about 30 minutes showing us around the house and orienting us to the town with maps she provided. She even provides a cell phone so that you can get in touch with her easily! One day we accidentally changed the combination on the door lock and Kham came at 8:30 at night to fix it. She took us to the alms giving ceremony one morning and prepared everything so that we could participate responsibly and thoughtfully in this traditional Laotian ceremony. Afterwards she took us through the morning market and to her favorite place for breakfast. The house is a little outside town near a sports center with a pretty good olympic pool (it's really cold though!) that is only 10,000 kip per person, and both our kids were half price. What a treat on a hot afternoon. We showed tuk tuk drivers on our phone where to go when they drove us home and Kham told us how much we should pay so that we could get a good rate. We used the kitchen for most breakfasts and a few lunches and bought food at local grocery stores and markets. Being able to cook breakfast is really helpful for us when traveling with little kids. It's a bit of a long walk for the kids to the old town (although they did it a few times), so we eventually rented bikes at 20,000 kip/day from a place in town and biked back and forth. Until then we took tuk tuks. The kids rode on racks with cushions on the back and we found helmets for everyone. Because we are traveling for an extended period of time, we have to do a bit of school work with the kids most days. The free wifi and two dining tables with chairs on the lower level was perfect for this. That level stays cool and breezy even on hot afternoons. We loved having access to a washing machine and most things we washed at night were dry the next morning. To be able to stay up after the kids went to bed, we had one kid sleep in our bed until we were ready to go to sleep and then we moved her to the bed in the living room. It's lovely and cool in the house with all the windows open and the fans on. We didn't miss the air con at all and were quite happy to have the outdoor feel of living in such a traditional space. Overall, this is one of the best AirBnB experiences we have had. Kham and Henri are fantastic hosts and have a range of other parts of their business (including local homestays in Kham's village and cooking classes), so we definitely recommend checking it out (www(dot)homestay-laos(dot)com) We are so lucky to have found such a fantastic place to stay.

We did the homestay in Muang Soune village with Kham for one night and two days. It really was a highlight of our Laos trip. We visited a local market in Luang Prabang on the way to Kham's home village of Muang Soune on the banks of the Ou River. Kham's uncle met us in his boat to take us across to the village which isn't accessible by road. We had a village tour, visited the rice paddies and the school, helped prepare one of the fantastic meals cooked by Kham and her aunt, bathed in the river, went fishing, and took alms to the temple. It was a busy two days. Kham happily answered all of our questions and helped us to gain a much better understanding of Lao history, current affairs and challenges. Kham's passion for her homeland and culture are infectious. She really goes the extra mile to make sure that her guests are well taken care of and have an authentic Lao experience.

I stayed at Kham's aunt and uncle home in her childhood village for two days/one night. It was a wonderful experience. It gave me a good perspective on the day to day life of the Lao villagers. The humble home and the tasty meals, cooked mostly from self-grown and local ingredients, are absolutely authentic! Kham is a great host, friendly and ready to convers on any subject; these two days accompanied by her gave me a good opportunity to understand the Lao culture. I highly recommend this village Homestay. For contact and info: lookup Luang Prabang Homestay and then search for homestay-laos site.

One of the most memorable experiences we've ever had. My partner and I did 3days/2nights with Kaalm in her childhood village. We learnt a lot and would recommend it to anyone who wants an authentic experience. Seeing the locals crafting baskets and dresses was a highlight, along with interacting with the school children.

Although I didn't stay at Kham and Henri's town homestay, I booked their trip to kham's village. And I'm so glad I did. Kham collected me from my hotel and we travelled in her dad's van. It's quite a long way, but I was very comfy up front and even got to catch up with my reading when not looking at the stunning scenery! On arrival we took a little ferry over to the village- and the fun began! Met the rest of the family and settled in to the house. Kham took me walking through the rice fields, and round the village to the vegetable plots. The abundance of produce was stunning and it was good to see kham purchasing fresh vegetables for later. We then walked down for river bathing. It was a welcome relief from the heat and such good fun- especially when joined by the local schoolchildren! And then what can I say about the food! The selection and quality was excellent, and repeated at every meal, with fabulous ingredients. After dinner we played card games and then off to bed. Slept on a mattress in the family room under a mosquito net, and slept like a log. Next morning, after another incredible meal, accompanied kham, her uncle and dad on a fishing trip. Stunning scenery all around but sadly no fish! Opportunity for some chill time on the river bank before lunch and then home. It was a privilege to be able to share kham's family's life for a short time and have a truly unique and genuine experience. Thanks for your hospitality xx
