I wouldn't consider this a home stay. We stayed in a newly built room next to the main house and it was amazing, luxurious even, but the warmth of a home was missing. Dat arranged the pick up from Sapa an a guide for the tours, but he was not talking to us more than was necessary (breakfast time and...

Dat's 'Heavenly Homestay' was a great experience. It was a lovely combination of staying in amongst the local community (house situated in the heart of the village, eating dinner with Dat and family, having a local walking guide) and having really lovely, comfortable accommodation where we could have our own private space to relax. Our bedroom and bathroom were lovely...

We stayed for two nights and did three days of walking tours with a guide Sanmay from the village. Dat the owner is very friendly and has a great sense of humour and is a fantastic story teller, with great stories to tell. We stayed in the VIP room, in the brand new bungalows next to the main house. It...

Nice place if you want to be away from main town Sapa and the tourists. Excellent to get to know the local villages. Clean place but note it can get very cold in the winter months. Really lovely food cooked by Dat. English speaking friendly tour guides organised by Dat. Beautiful location and views. Lots of hiking. To book -...

We stayed for three days and two nights at Dat's place. Everything was well organised even the pick up after arriving by night bus from Hanoi and the transport back to Lao Cai to catch the train back to Hanoi. The three days trekking with our guide from the red zhao tribe were really nice and beautiful. We saw villages,...

If you want to stay in a comfortable place and experience village life, Heavenly Homestay is ideal. We took an overnight bus to Sapa and were picked up in the morning by a taxi arranged by our host Dat. Dat provided three meals a day, and a guide for us. San Mei, a young,red Dzao woman hiked with us through...

Dat was a wonderful host from the first email I sent with initial inquiries to the hug goodbye we got. His home and hospitality made us feel so welcome (it was my 24-year old son and myself). We went in December, so the night was chilly (and I'm from Chicago, so quite used to the cold), but of course the...

Dat is an exceptional host. Not to missed if you are visiting Vietnam and want to have a true experience of native people and land! Dat shows you the way of the local people. I highly recommend taking a trek from him as well. Very kind and friendly and great place to stay.
