Guests' favourite accommodation in Ta Van, Sapa. It has the best view of the valley, the bungalows are on stilts and each has a view of the stunning rice fields. Sen and her husband are lovely hosts, they really go out of their way to make you feel comfortable at the stay.

My partner and our 2 friends stayed here for 3 nights in November during a 3 week visit to Vietnam. It was by far my favourite place in terms of the overall experience. Getting there is a slight challenge as its approximately 150 steps uphill from the road but its worth it! Sen and her family are so friendly and welcoming. We felt like we were at home dining amongst them in the evenings and really enjoyed our chats with them. The food was exceptional...you get to choose from a varied menu each night. I highly recommend the vegan spring rolls! I really liked that we could access the fridge to get beers ourselves and were trusted to keep a note of them ready for paying on check out. Sen arranged a trek which included lunch with a local family for us. It was well organised and they catered for us starting a little later than usual due to us travelling for so long the day before. The huts are on stilts with a beautiful view. They are small but suited our needs. heated blankets were provided which I absolutely loved. Fresh fruit was provided in the rooms and some basic toiletries also. If I go back to Vietnam, I'd 100% stay here again. Thank you Sen and family for being such fantastic hosts and making our trip so memorable!

Absolutely amazing!! We’ve been in Vietnam for 10 days so far and Eco Hills Homestay is the best place we’ve stayed so far! The wooden huts on stilts are AMAZING, simple and very clean inside, with a decent sized bathroom! The bedroom has a window out onto a private balcony which just has the most amazing view of the rice fields. Sen and her husband are super friendly, and really took the time to chat to us at dinner time and offer advise on what hiking tour would be best suited for us (definitely book a hiking tour if you visit, it’s the best way to see the local villages and the best views in Sapa)!! The home cooked food for breakfast and dinner was 10/10. Delicious and lots of vegetarian options!

We had an amazing three nights at Eco Hills Homestay. Sen is an fantastic host and we really enjoyed being surrounded by her family at mealtimes. The food was delicious and Sen arranged a brilliant local guide (Su) for two days of trekking. Definitely recommend.

This is not to be missed. Bungalows are on stilts and each has a view of the stunning rice fields. Sen and her husband welcome you into their home and meet her family. There are numerous trips available and they really go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. They have an excellent chef as well. We did a 4 hour trek which was perfect with 2 children but there are more adventurous ones available if you like. It is remote but that is what makes it exciting. You won’t find a better view from your bungalow. This is definitely worth the trip.
