We had a magical time at Rudimental. Martin was extremely communicative and made the self-check in incredibly easy. His home is like a Netherland that most can only dream of visiting. We felt like children playing in a tree house. The kitchen is equipped to perfection and it was so nice to cook and bake all sorts of different foods. The bed was really comfortable, we felt very safe and at peace throughout our entire 11-day stay. The power shower is a great bonus and being in nature is so lovely. His neighbor Tai was very helpful and loaned us bikes for the duration of our trip and Mama the housekeeper is nice and friendly. Thank you for such an incredible stay and thank you for opening your home to us!

Rudimental House was ideal for us - my husband and I wanted time away from the constant travelling. We spent 18 days in the house which is extremely well equipped for self catering, The house offers all that you need in an interesting and artistic construction. Martin was a great communicator, an extremely considerate and generous host. Jon his neighbour provided us with a lot of help whilst Martin was away which was an added bonus. The house is very near a beach on the Mekong River and is along the Sunset Road which has several restaurants and bars. We would highly recommend this accommodation and wouldn't hesitate to return if life allowed

I stayed at Martins place briefly on a trip to Laos, and i definitely want to return. The building itself and the surrounding area is absolutely beautiful. It is far enough away from the 'main strip' in Dondet, that it is peaceful and isolated. However, close enough for you to enjoy dinner and a few drinks and know it's a short walk back home. The place is extremely comfortable and there are many places to relax on his land. I love that it is self catering and that there is a 'western' shower. I would definitely recommend.

Martin's place was great. The house is surrounded by this beautiful garden. We had a great time and communication was easy and great. We can definitely recommend the rudimental holiday lodge for a chilled trip. Many thanks, Martin!

The Lodge is very nice and created with a lot of love, located 15 min by foot from the harbour, next to restaurants, but really calm and with a private court of beach. You have the possibility to relax and having having party (if you like). The bathing place is really beautiful. One day we had the luck to see water buffaloes, who were swimming around there. The lodge is very clean and comfortable. Its a mix between european standards and jungle feeling for explorers. The restaurants are close to the lodge and the food is very tasty. The people are very friendly. We were 5 days at Martins place and had a lot of activities: Visited an island with other backpackers, made sport on the beach, were running around the island (~7km), party on the beach and tubing. Thank you Martin for your amazing hospitality. We enjoyed our stay and activities very much and I'm sure: we will come back! :)

I can't say enough good things about the guesthouse! It is in a quiet location down the beaten path from town. From the neighborhood cats, dogs, chickens and cows, this property has so many charming quirks. It is well equipped with anything you could possibly need from all kitchen utensils, to 5 different hammocks on the property. It is a short walking distance from the beach and a short bike ride from Don Khon. Martin was away on holiday himself, but still managed to keep in close communication and even organized a fish bbq with a local friend. Needless to say, Don Det and the Rudimental house are very special places.

A lovely quite place to relax and enjoy Lao lifestyle. It's located near the French bridge so it very easy to visit the sights on don Khone which we really enjoyed. The kitchen and comfortable beds made this place a unique 4 star experience. I would highly recommend.
