This house is charmless and dirty. It is at least 20 minutes by motorbike from town and impossible to stay in unless you ride a bike as taxis are only available from the main road which is about 20 minutes walk away. There was no working fridge and the kitchen consisted of one gas ring and some crockery, cutlery and pans packed in boxes. Of the two bikes, one did not work. The one that did work only had one wing mirror and inadequate lights. It also broke down, although we were very lucky to be near a repair shop and they managed to fix it. The family next door were lovely but did not keep the place clean. The owner only chooses to reply to messages when it suits her. We left a day early as we couldn't face staying there any longer. DO NOT STAY HERE.
This is a truly Vietnamese experience ! The house is clean and comfortable and the motorcycles are a real bonus.
The neighbouring family is lovely, very warm and welcoming so bring your phrase book as they do not speak English. They really looked after us. YaNa is readily available by phone (neighbour's and free) and speaks English - she is very helpful and prompt replying to emails and sms.
Phu Quoc is a lovely island with a bit of everything and well worth a visit before big development gets a hold.
The White House is a secluded oasis close to the main town. Motorbikes included are a big plus and neighbours are helpful. This place is great for escaping tourist traps in phu quoc but there is no wifi or ac and electricity is by generator and therefore wobbly. A secret spot off the beaten track :)
The White House is simple, but funktions ok. It is placed 10 min from the City center by Motorbike.
It is clean and the neighbours are very helpfull and look after the house and the things when we are away on exploring the Nice Island.
