Details

This includes a 1-night stay (with breakfast) in a charming and spacious double or triple room in Mekong Pottery Homestay, and a guided hidden island boat trip & a visit to a pottery factory. Each room comes with its own garden patio and open-air bathroom. This gorgeous brick and terracotta bungalow is located on a quiet Vĩnh Long street, right in front of a 2-decade-old coffee shop, where Yennie's mother (your hosts) will happily make you a cup of Vietnamese coffee whenever you want!

This experience is perfect for those seeking a uniquely intimate experience of the local life with its non-touristy cycling excursion. During the trip, discover a traditional pottery factory and a local orchard. Yennie has also personally designed a boat trip to a lesser-known village nearby, so you'll get to blend into the local culture to the fullest while avoiding the crowds.

Mekong Pottery boasts a beautiful garden view and its rustic architecture is adorned with pottery, paying respect to the local artisans of Vinh Long, where they craft ceramics using exotic red clay unique to the Co Chien River. In the homestay, there are badminton courts available, and also a cafe for you to grab your meal. When you are looking for an adventure in this pottery village, don't hesitate to hop on one of the bicycles and cycle along the river or visit the eco-tourism park nearby to admire the different egg-shaped kilns and beautiful potteries lying around!

Yennie started Mekong Pottery Homestay by complete accident. She and her family were running a small cafe when a Romanian couple wondered in looking for a coffee, but also shared their struggle of finding a decent place to stay overnight that was both comfortable and authentic. After spending just one day with the couple, she realised her true calling for hosting and hospitality! Since then Yennie and her family have been providing not only comfortable boutique style accommodation, they have also been sharing authentic Vietnamese hospitality through thoughtfully put together excursions, tasty food and lots of local stories.

Liked · The best part is how cute the rooms are. My name was written in the door, the partly outdoor bathroom was a delight, even the electric wires were cute. Yennie and her mother were wonderful hosts and Tom the dog was the cutest. Disliked · There was not a store nearby to sell ice cream, but that was also nice to be out of the city center.

3 of us have had a great experience in Vinh Long and especially at Mekong Pottery Homestay. Although we only stay at homestay, there are 2 D1n (20-21/06/2020) but we like our belly so much that we should nominate a little bit for reference, otherwise people think that all foreigners are shy hehe :D * Back to the position: Homestay near Dinh Khao ferry so it's convenient to go to Cu Lao, and this area is still in the city. Vinh Long so even though the evening around is quite quiet but want to run into the center of the city to play for less sadness, it's also carefree. I see that instead of staying at the central hotel, it's more air to stay like this :)) * About space: this is the best. Walking into homestay is only able to admire ?? Oh my God, why so cute <3 ?? See the previous picture and you can imagine it but it's more beautiful than the picture. From the cool green garden, wide patio, super nice decor room, bright to the WC can see the clouds and also beautiful. Most especially being decorated by the mother and sister - a normal person who doesn't specialize in art architecture - but is super good. The common concept is to be decorated with brick, ceramics and intimate nature. If it's raining, I'm afraid to go out on the street, I'll make a nest at homestay for one day. I will put some pictures in the comment to say more carefully. * About service: this is also very satisfactory, mommy, the boss is so cute with dimples and the mother is so gentle and good in the West. The family welcomes me from the time I inbox to book until we send us off to go to Sai Gon, it feels like home here. Homestay carefully prepares full towels to wash shampoo and shower gel anti-mosquito blabla. If you need advice on what to eat, just ask the mother and daughter of the owner. Well even homestay provide some services such as car rentals, tours to experience what only native people know... We don't have much time so we can't go but if possible Everyone remember to try. The boss has full career in tour guide (specialized in only Asia's university) and is super mindful of Vinh Long homeland so you won't be disappointed :)) Ah the most surprising thing is that homestay will give each Guests have a very meaningful memory bandana, lol very thoughtful :" > * Price: With a lot of super cool things but room price is very pleasant. We ordered at 20 % promotion so the room price of 3 people is only 507 k / night, separating each one super cheap (even though we haven't had promotion, it's still cheap :))) Time Check-in time is 14 g and check out 12 pm the next day but we arrived early at 11 pm the other day and paid late (17 pm the next day). Despite this, the room is empty so homestay still lets us get room early and the colonel pays late without collecting anything :" > Motorcycle rental price is 170 k / motorbike and 120 k / bike scared. Room price will include breakfast but we like to go to the restaurant so the owner invited me to eat tea at noon hehe :)) * The whole long thing on the skillful people read that I am a homestay owner who is invisible advertisement or something but I'm really just a customer, like flying dancing also because of vivid places in Vietnam and stop in many homestay but to If you like your belly, you will write a long review, there are only a few places left. Objectively, there are also things you should consider when visiting Mekong Pottery: - Homestay only has 2 rooms (1 rooms 3 persons and 1 rooms 2 persons) so if people go out of 5 persons or want to be in the same room, there are more than 3 persons This place is not suitable. Even because it's cute, but there's too little room, it's easy to run out of place soon. - Due to the garden space with many plants and characteristics of the West, mosquitoes often invite each other to dance, everyone should apply cream or mosquito spray and night then remove the screen (princess style is also pretty) Let's talk to each other. It's not the insects from mosquitoes to strange creatures that keep coming back or where flying into bed all the time >.< That's it, we are enthusiastically nominating Mekong Pottery Homestay
