We had such a wonderful stay here! It was great learning and talking about Laos history, culture, and current affairs with Mike and Xoukiet. Food provided was amazing and they made us feel very at home. If we came back to Vientiane, we would certainly stay here again! The house i…

Mike and Xoukiet were very welcoming, kind hosts. This is an ideal quiet place to stay on the outside of town, and Mike was happy to take us into town whenever we asked, was incredibly accommodating, and the house was well kept and beautiful. This is a high-interaction experience…

Dear Paul and Wendi: thank you so very much for your very generous review. You know how much we enjoyed having you stay with us and want to thank you most sincerely for choosing Jungle House from amongst the many choices that you had. We take the point about loss of autonomy and only hope that the serenity, the experience of Mother Nature, the facilities and the opportunities to interact closely with other guests, compensates for that (not to mention Xoukiet's cuisine! MB!). Best wishes to you both in all that you do. Mike

Mike and Xoukiet were wonderful hosts. Our flight was scheduled to land in Vientiane at 11:50pm on Sunday night. We didn't end up getting in until 4:00am Monday morning. But even so, Mike was there at the airport waiting for us! Every morning, they served us delicious breakfast…

I wish there were more stars to give - staying here was truly a trip highlight. Mike was an outstanding host, taking care of us from landing to departure. He was able to give a lot of local context and history, and dinner conversations were a true delight. The place is also just …

I have never had a better Airbnb experience, or any lodging experience as wonderful as staying with Mike and Xoukiet. Not only is the Jungle House and its grounds exceptional, so were our hosts. EVERYTHING was taken care of from being picked up from the bus station, a city tour…
