Homestay at Dalat

For our latest stay in Dalat, we decided to again book through Airbnb. We had a good experience with Cozy House a couple of years ago and wanted to stay there again but it was already fully booked for the holidays. So after some deliberation, we booked the whole place of Linh, The Experience Cafe Homestay. Linh’s place is 10 minutes away from the city center on a not so busy street.

The place was spacious with 4 bedrooms and 3 toilets. 3 of the bedrooms have 2 double beds. The smaller bedroom has a double bed and Linh can even add more mattresses if needed.

We took the 3 bedrooms on the second floor. Kids could safely play inside the bedroom and the steps on the staircase weren’t steep, so we weren’t too worried about our boys.

Below is the bedroom facing the street.

Below is the smallest bedroom which was the coziest I think as it was sandwiched between other rooms so it wasn’t too cold here.

The kitchen is spacious as well. So even if we were all busy preparing food — especially on New Year’s Eve, we were all able to go about our business without bumping into each other.

We could hangout on the rooftop but it was just too darn cold (below).

It afforded us a view of Dalat. We could actually see the Statue of the Golden Buddha from this perch.

The accommodations by the way was on top of Linh’s Cafe. Linh’s family owns a coffee farm 70 kms away from the center.

We enjoyed our stay immensely as Linh was accommodating — looking after our needs, even preparing Pizza Dalat for our dinner one evening.

On our first day of tour, he even came with us to bring us around to make sure we don’t get lost and get ripped off.

We can’t recommend Linh and his place enough.
