We offer a lovely nature retreat just 20 mins drive from Saigon centre. Our rustic open bungalow is located right on top of the water hidden among the water-coconut trees. The lively and vivid nature happens right at your window. When standing under our open sky shower, you will feel as refreshed as if you were standing under a waterfall. Our 3 daily included meals come directly from our organic garden on site. Springfield cottage is a perfect getaway for those who love to find peace in nature.
The open-air rustic bungalow is surrounded by water, flowers, fish and birds. You will be waken up in the early morning by the beautiful sunlight and the bird singing. Fish will jump out of the water to say hello to you. You will have your own space, quiet and peaceful.
After checking-in at the lobby with our home-made flower tea, you will entry a blue door, walk along a wooden bridge, pass by the beautiful lotus and lily water flowers and finally get into your unique bungalow.
I assume you already seen the photos of my listing on Airbnb. It is called Canh Dong Hoa-Springfield Cottage. I have to admit I live in big city-Saigon but that would not stop me from looking for a peaceful place that is close to the nature. I love planting trees and flowers, I get mesmerised every time I see new type of any plants. Luckily I owned this vast land 15km from city centre. Most of the land was on water of water coconut forest (that's why it was not too pricey when I bought it 10 years ago). I started planting every new plants I found and when things started to blossom, I decided to share this stunning view with others.
So I started by building a bungalow on top of the water and the road to get to the bungalow. When I lay there watching the birds and fishes and listening to the wind, I realise this is such a luxury everyone would love to experience as a homestay and plus organic food we have in the garden. Here it goes, I now own 8 bungalows in the water coconut forest and an organic flower and veggie garden. I even raise some ducks and crabs and shrimps. We serve 3 meal per day and a BBQ on Saturday night. We also serve home brewed cold beers, soy bean milk, sugar cane, teas and coffees, all carefully chosen to bring the most refreshing drinks for our beloved customers. Our customers can also enjoy yoga, rowing, reading books or cooking with us.
It is real fun having guests that later we call friends to share the same interest with us. Hope you choose to stay and become friends with us too!
