  • We stayed six days in this beautiful house in a quite neighborhood 5 km north of Luang Prabang and had a wonderful Laotian experience.

    The hosts Henri-Pierre and Kham were not home during our stay but made several call to make sure we were OK. The family of Kham was very helpful although the parents spoke nothing but Laotian.

    The house is very well equipped with three separate bedrooms and a large kitchen and living room making it ideal for a family of five like ours.

    The distance to the city is somewhat inconvenient, although the father of Kham gladly provide transportation. The tuk-tuks in town may need some persuasion to drive that far out of town. The local restaurants in the area are closed after 8 p.m.

  • We had a magical time staying with Henri-Pierre and Kham!

    We originally planned on spending just two days in Luang Prabang but after arriving and enjoying a wonderful home-cooked meal on their outdoor patio and hearing their stories about Laos we decided to stay for a full five days. Each day we rented their motorbike and rode into town or went exploring waterfalls and returned home to enjoy a wonderful Laos meal and great conversation.

    Kham and Henri-Pierre were dedicated hosts that went to great lengths to ensure we had a fantastic trip. They provided advice on what to do, lent us a cell phone in case of emergencies and graciously shared meals and insights to the local culture.

    The space is a bit off the beaten path, which we loved. It's a 15-20 minute drive into the city. It was incredibly clean and with fresh towels and great touches like fresh towels daily, water left by the bed and basic toiletries.

    If you're looking for a chance to learn about the culture, have an authentic stay in Laos and meet a wonderful family, this is a great option that I'd highly recommend.

  • Nous avons passé 2 semaines et demi chez HP et Kham et avons été enchantés de notre séjour chez eux. Ils sont tous les deux très accueillants, chaleureux, attentifs aux besoins de leurs hôtes.
    Kham a régulièrement cuisiné pour nous et c'est une cuisinière hors pair. Elle nous a fait des recettes de sa grand mère et c'était absolument fabuleux, le meilleur restaurant de LP!!
    La maison est grande et confortable, très agréable. Le jardin n'est pas très grand mais joli.
    En ce qui concerne l'environnement proche, on s'attendait à être plus au milieu de la nature mais les constructions semblent essaimer tout autour (au grand désespoir d'HP qui était entouré de jungle lorsqu'il a acheté le terrain!!). Cependant, il y a un chemin tout proche qui longe le Mékong et rejoint LP et qui est très agréable à faire en vélo.
    L'inconvénient majeur est la distance de Luang Prabang, il faut impérativement un véhicule pour s'y rendre. En tant que famille avec des enfants en bas âge, c'était assez compliqué pour nous et si nous revenions à LP, nous chercherions un logement dans la ville même. En revanche, si nous revenions en couple, nous n'hésiterions pas à retourner chez HP et Kham car ils sont vraiment adorables et nous avons pu vraiment échanger avec eux sur les us et coutumes du Laos.

  • We've been first guests in this house, so host was a little been worried. On our arrival he mets us in the city and provide us to home. Immediately fixed some problems with water, so we could take a hot shower.
    If you stay here you got full floor with separates bedrooms and two bathroom, but was really great is a big terrace. You could rest here, take a dinner and see a sunset.
    On first floor there is a kitchen, in case if you want to cook by yourself.
    This house located not in center of Luang Prabang but only 5km to North, not far from airport. There is a quiet easy road to city through village, and you see 4 temples and village with handycraft market. Walking by this road you entering by bamboo bridge just in Luang Prabang center.
    This location is good for families who avoid a tourist crowded places.
    Henri-Pierre & Kham is a nice couple and hospitable people.
    We get a lot advices about travelling in Laos from them, cause they working in tourist indusrty.
