This is a lovely little house, close to Han River with shops, market and food within walking distance. Why stay at a hotel when you can have a house to yourself with more space and privacy? The house has a living room, kitchen and bathroom on the first floor and the entire second floor is a huge bedroom.
I enjoyed staying at Khanh's studio. I initially planned to stay only one week, but needed to extend to 10 days due to change of business trip plans. I enjoyed coming back to the place that was my home for 10 days. Thank you very much! I am looking forward to renting from Khanh again next time I am in the area.
Great house. Great host. Extremely flexible and willing to work with us to meet our needs.

The host's assistant allowed my family an earlier check in than listed and allowed parking for 3 cars which was nice, but the home was not exactly what I expected based on the pictures.. We came in around noon. It's an attached home behind a 4plex unit in a neighborhood of multiple house units. I had to send pictures of the small trickle of hot watering shower, the dirty floors, and the mold in the master bath. I wished they had taken care if that before check in. They will not accommodate early check out even after I pointed those things out. Reservations are strict. They did not have breakfast as stated. When I checked out and let them know that breakfast was supposed to be included based on listing I was told they removed breakfast because the chef was gone. I'm thankful that I had this place to go to in a short time notice (I had a kitchen fire and needed long term stay) but I checked out ASAP. Only stayed 4 days and that was more than enough.
We value guest feedback because we do want to know when it's time to improve or replace something. However, from time to time, we receive complaints that contain misinformation. There area few here that we'd like to point out:
- The property is a part of a triplex. The photos were taken and verified by Airbnb.
- We received an email notifying us of an early check out due to no hot water. We did not receive any photos. We responded by showing her how to turn on hot water. An early checkout is allowed, just not a refund since it's considered a unilateral rental contract cancellation. Guest later decided to stay until the end of the contract term.
- We have served over a thousand bookings in 5 years, at 10 properties, we have never served a single breakfast. Countless reviews on our properties never mentioned any breakfast experience. We had a chef who stayed at one of our vacation rentals for a couple of months but we did not acquire his service. Our housekeeper speaks limited English and did not understand the guest's request for breakfast.
- The guest did not mention her insurance did not pay us until a week after she checked out of our home.
Beautiful apartment in a cool neighborhood. Rooms were spacious. Bathrooms were great, full tub in one and great shower in the other. Air Conditioner was great. They even provided bottled drinking water! Away from the hustle bustle of downtown HCMC, just down the road was an amazing Spa on the water (Spa Authentic).

Khanh was a terrific host and made all of the necessary arrangements for us to stay at the beautiful home. We wish we could have stayed longer but it was just a quick trip! Thanks, Khanh! Everything was perfect!
I recently accepted a job offer in the South Bay and needed a room near downtown San Jose to use as a home base while I explored the area and went apartment hunting. Khanh was kind enough to let me stay in the Zen home, as he had just rented out the Studio to someone else.
Khanh was a great host. Shortly after I arrived, he stopped by to make sure I had everything I needed and helped me feel at home.
The Zen apartment was lovely, the location was ideal (close to Santana Row, downtown San Jose, and had easy access to the freeway), and the fully furnished apartment was very relaxing to stay in. I especially enjoyed the unit's private balcony at the end of some long days.
Khanh was always very friendly and helpful. When he found out I was looking for an apartment, he offered to let me stay at the Zen apartment for a discounted long-term rate. Even though I ended up signing a lease elsewhere, I appreciated the offer.
My first airbnb experience was awesome. I hope the hosts I stay with on my future trips are as friendly and welcoming as Khanh. Thanks again!
Cant say enough good things about Khanh the house and the hospitality that his family showed us. Just an amazing trip !!!!
Khanh was a great host. Very communicative, picked us up from the train station, and very hospitable. We actually stayed at his Branham House so that Khanh could do some maintenance at Chi House, and we loved it! Great space, comfy beds, perfect location. Khanh was even kind enough to rent a car for us for our trip, since we were now a bit further from the initial location. Great host, and one you can trust to take good care of you.
