Tired of city life? Looking for something refreshing? See the river and take a deep breathe or just plunge in the pool for swim? Then we have just the place for you. The River Home is only 45 minutes away from Ho chi minh city & 20 minutes boat ride from Nhon Trach and Cat Lai ferry in Dis 2. Come & stay with us. Surrounded by the river on both sides enjoy the amazing country life with some home cooked meals. It's a world within a world & so close to population and still so remote.

The space
This is a very unique place with two earth houses made from local water coconut leaves and makes it an ideal place to stay. It’s comfortable during summer and also rainy season. The setting is right on the bank of river bend, showing best sides of the river front. We have our own fishing pier where you can do fishing on the river or fish pond. We have our own boat to take you for sunset cruise while you can play some nice music or karaoke. Enjoy some local Vietnamese foods cooked by our caretaker of the property and have a peaceful night of sleep with nature and sound of the river.
