We stayed at Ben and Anjou's homestay for 3 nights as part of a group traveling together. What an amazing time we had. They made us feel so at home and part of the family. The meals were absolutely delicious. Ben organised lots of trips for us including visits meeting local people, his prawn farm, a cultural performance and two...

Ben's is a beautiful, well equipped cottage directly on the backwaters. He and his wife Anjou offer great service whenever you wish for it (meals, boat rides, massages) or you simply enjoy peaceful backwater living. We had a wonderful time and were happy we could extend for one more night. Our bike ride with Riju was great fun.
