I'm from Nha Trang City, Vietnam, but now I and Sue (my business partner) is running this homestay as well as travel agency in Ho Chi Minh City.
We love a peaceful local life and you are welcome to share our home.

My family and I stayed for 6 nights with Bino & Sue, in 3 of their rooms. We were so glad that we opted to stay with them rather than staying in a hotel.
They were so generous with their time and their local knowledge, we were able to visit restaurants and other places that would have been difficult to visit otherwise (no English spoken, no menus in English, etc.), and some of those places were our favorite spots in Saigon.
The accommodation was comfortable & spacious. We enjoyed being outside of the major tourist areas, it gave us a better insight into how locals live. Taxis were readily available and inexpensive, for the times when we wanted to do touristy things. A couple of times taxi drivers had trouble understanding us (we spoke English, but they didn't) and we were able to call Bino and have him explain to the driver where we wanted to go.
For those times when you don't feel like eating out, there's lots of convenient options for home delivery of food, Sue & Bino know how to do it all.
I highly recommend the small spa that's just a little way down the lane. After having several mediocre services throughout SEA, I went with fairly low expectations but it was awesome. Honestly, one of the best facials and massages I've had anywhere in the world, and very inexpensive by European/US/Australian standards.
Traffic in this neighborhood is similar to the rest of Saigon - lots of motorbikes and not particularly enjoyable to be a pedestrian. The neighborhood seemed very safe, I took several early morning walks, but no matter what time of the day or night there are still lots of motorbikes on the roads, that's just Vietnam though.
All in all, I don't think we could have picked a better spot to stay in Saigon. The "insider tips" and generosity from Bino & Sue was so welcoming. They were able to take care of all arrangements when we wanted a driver to take us to Cu Chi tunnels and other places, it made it so easy for us. I highly recommend this homestay.
Easy. Cozy. Special. Sue & Bino have created a wonderful nest for travelers and we felt lucky to have experienced it if even for just one night.
When we entered the house, we received fruit and drinks and a warm welcome. When we entered our room, we got snacks and drinks free of charge. When we left for dinner, a taxi was already waiting to take us to a fantastic little restaurant - recommended by Sue. And when we had to wake up the next morning to leave at 4am, they were waiting by the door to say goodbye.
Thanks for the wonderful stay and for being such a gracious host. Highly recommended!

Go Connect can arrange your excursions in Ho Chi Minh City,transfers to Nha Trang,Da Nang,Hanoi etc.and find you accomodation to suit your pocket.
The experience we had was something you would never get with booking a hotel in District 1 or 3 and left on your own.
My email is head_(email hidden) and I will try and answer any queries you may have.
I searched the internet purposefully for a local input and cannot recommend Sue and Bino too highly - Bino is Vietnamese from near Nha Trang and Sue is Australian with a Croatian background.They will cook breakfast,lunch and dinner for you if requested but take their recommendations for dining out.
Bino and his friend were great guests. Just stayed too short at my house.
