My husband and I would thoroughly recommend a stay at the villa. Alexis was really welcoming, suggesting we had dinner with him and one of the housemates the evening we arrived. In fact, the housemates were really nice and easy to get on with and we ended up going out with a couple of them during our week in Saigon. The villa was beautiful, our ensuite room clean, cool and spacious and the location perfect for us - a relative calm oasis outside of the hustle and bustle of D1 but just a short taxi drive from it!
The reservation was canceled 104 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Hi a great host Alexis and friends are a great bunch of expats however the house is a good 10 -15 minute cab ride from downtown vietnam and cabs can be a bit hard to organise from the location thus if you are doing a lot of activities in Saigon (District 1) then not ideal.
On the other hand if you have a few days this is an ideal place to get away from the noise of HCMC and also sit by the pool with a drink.
Alexis would gladly give you the clothes of his back - a great host and I had a great time staying there.
The place is an very beautiful mansion in a little remore area of Saigon where you can enjoy some piece. Not a small feat in this crazy town. I loved doing nothing by the pool while getting used to the climate and the new timetable.
Alexis is very friendly and he will welcome you wonderfully.
Definitely a place to choose if you want to relax a bit in HCMC!
I have nothing but great things to say about my experience staying with Alex - he is an incredible host with great energy, generosity and insight into Saigon's scene. Before I arrived he was kind to offer advice and recommendations for other aspects of my trip; once I showed up we went out and about with his friends. The house, room and accommodation in general is true to the description and more than perfect for a good night's rest or recovery!
If you are looking for a little bit of luxury in Saigon with knowledgable and friendly hosts then this place is a must. Alexis and the other tenets are super nice and welcoming, they speak fluent French & English and are more than happy to give you recommendations on what to do and see in the city and beyond. The house is a beautiful suburban villa with it's own private garden and pool. Our room was big and spacious with aircon and ensuite. There is also a cleaning lady who can do your laundry! The house is a 10min taxi ride to the city centre however I strongly suggest borrowing one of the guys scooters if you can and experience Saigon like a real local. I strongly recommend this accommodation if you want a comfortable and authentic alternative in Saigon.
Alexis and his friends was excellent guests, very friendly and with a good mood. The communication was easy. It was a pleasure receive them. I highly recommend his for all hosts.
