About this listing
You will sleep in a private room.
Old and traditional Lao style wooden house located just two blocks from the city center of Vientiane.
The accommodation is spacious, the room is simple and clean, bathroom and toilet also.
KING size bed and luxury mattresses very comfy allows you to rest and enjoy your days.
I installed mosquito nets on every windows of the house: the amount of mosquito is very limited.
The shared shower is equipped with hot water.
There is no kitchen because it’s better to eating out to taste the local dishes and it is much cheaper to eat every day outside !
You will stay in a secure room with your personal key so you can enter and leave any time you want.
This room has :
- A bed (180x200cm).
- A 2-door wardrobe to store your belongings.
- A shelf to store your clothes.
- A modern air conditioner with remote control.
- An extension cord with multiple outlets.
- Two locks on the bedroom door.
I do not recommend eating and drink inside the room (except water of course) because of the ants, in Laos those are red ants, they quickly invade your bed and bite ! I invite you to enjoy the ground floor : there are tables, chairs and even a sofa.
You will have access to the whole house as well as equipment.
I have a TV but no cable : you can take your USB stick and watch movies and series on a big screen :)
I provided bed sheet, shampoo, soap and toilet paper.
Interaction with Guests
I live in the house but I work also so thank you to respect the schedules of check-in / check-out.
We can always communicate by Airbnb messenger if you need some information, and of course when I get home too.
You will be in the city center of Vientiane : close to all amenities.
Whether for sightseeing or to dinning, you will have access to all even by foot, you will not even need to pay a Tuktuk, or rent a motorcycle !
If you still want to take a Tuktuk you find in the street 30 seconds from home.
This is also the same place that you can get tickets for transport Vang Vieng for example. For those who go to Luang Prabang there is even a shuttle that picks you directly.
In Laos the streets have no address (only main road), it will be necessary to follow the instructions that will be in your confirmation by mail once the reservation is confirmed. It’s very important because i work also and maybe I couldn’t answer you quickly.
Other Things to Note
For your safety here in Laos and mine every booking must be by AIRBNB. If you want to stay a few extra days, you must modify your booking by yourself on the website.
For reservations of 7 nights or more, you will get a 5% discount on your stay.
I have two rooms so I can accommodate up to 4 people simultaneously.
Be careful with some ads on the website (especially in South Asia) because it's only hotels or apartments.
No shoes inside the house.
No towels provided because of the very low price charged.
The check-out is before 12pm. The check-in must be from 2pm. I do not accept anyone in the morning and in the night : I work.
I just ask you to give me your arrival time then I can organize myself and welcome you for the keys in a better way.
Very enjoyable stay in Vientianne. Songsanti's home was very comfortable and we were made to feel welcome by him. The road outside was very lively and happening at night with the sounds of the local Laotians enjoying their nightlife. Our stay was only brief but we had time to sample the delicious foods along the banks of the Mekhong which provided a very romantic location and some very affordable seafood. A view and ambience like this in other countries would cost many times more. Make sure to keep walking along the road with the nightmarket and clothes sellers until you reach this area.
If you are feeling particularly active why not join in with the assorted aerobics classes that punctuate the walk along the sea front or just take in the meandering Mekhong whilst enjoying a cold Beer Lao.
P.s. Singsanti's cats are cute!
We really enjoyed our time at singsantis house. The room and the flat are very nice and we felt comfortable there (the bed was the best we ever had in our whole time in laos!) . We had a beer with him and he told us about living in laos, its people and culture. Anytime again!
Singsanti was a great host! I was fortunate to have dinner and breakfast with him and another fellow resident. We got to chat about local life, customs, and Laotian culture. I wouldn't have been able to have that experience if I was staying at a regular hotel or hostel.
His homestay is near the main city center which is very walkable. The place was very clean and is cleaned daily. It was very spacious and the room had a nice big bed with a cabinet to store clothes. There will plenty of windows with mosquito screens that could be opened for fresh air. His 2 cats were friendly. I would highly recommend this homestay for solo travelers or families interested in experience local culture while staying in a traditional style house. Singsanti also owns a restaurant downstairs in case you get hungry.
Very nice time. Great neighborhood. SIngsanti is located right in the heart of town, and was very friendly and welcoming to us. Thanks Singsanti, and hope to see you soon in Shanghai!
I stayed 3 nights at Singsanti's house. The room was very clean and comfortable, for a fair price. The food at the restaurant was super tasty for very good prices as well. Singsanti is a very polite and friendly host. We also went out for dinner and a beer. I will definitely recommend him to friends going to Vientiane in future!
Strategic location, nice house, comfortable room, fair price and very friendly hospitality from Singsanti. Five stars

About the Host, Singsanti
D'une forte expérience d'AIRBNB en France (80 séjours / an) mais aussi au Laos (environ 200 séjours / an) je sais comment accueillir et recevoir mes guests.
Je suis laotien mais né en France : Je viens tout juste de quitter Lyon (octobre 2013) pour m'installer au Laos et comme j'ai toujours apprécié l'entraide et rencontrer des gens, j'ai voulu renouveler cette expérience d'hôte. C'est la raison pour laquelle je m'inscris pour la deuxième fois sur AIRBNB.
Si un jour vous passez par Lyon - France, n'hésitez pas à passer à mon appart.
Dormir chez l'habitant c'est avant tout partager un moment avec un local mais c'est surtout l'opportunité de découvrir et apprécier la culture d'un pays de manière plus authentique. Plutôt que d'aller à l'hôtel, réserver une chambre chez l'habitant avec Airbnb permet de voyager moins cher tout en donnant une nouvelle dimension à des vacances loin des clichés touristiques habituels. On bénéficie non seulement des précieux conseils et recommandations des hôtes pour visiter des endroits insolites mais on a aussi l'opportunité de découvrir des lieux dont on n'aurait pas soupçonner l'existence lors d'une excursion classique.
Je vous attends avec impatience chez moi :)
In a strong AIRBNB experience in France (80 journeys/year) and Laos also (200 journeys/year) I know how to welcome and receive my guests.
I'm Lao but born in France : I just moved from Lyon (october 2013) to settle in Laos and I have always appreciated the support and meet people, I wanted to repeat that experience of host. This is why I subscribe for the second time on AIRBNB.
If one day you go through Lyon - France, feel free to go to my apartment.
Sleeping in a house of a guest is all about sharing a moment with a local and especially the opportunity to discover and appreciate the culture of a country more authentically. Rather than going to the hotel, book a homestay with Airbnb makes traveling cheaper while giving a new dimension to your holidays a differrent way than the usual tourism. It offers valuable advice and recommendations guests to visit unusual places but we also have the opportunity to discover places that you would not suspect during a classical tour.
I look forwarding you at my home :)
