Dear Tung and Hiep and Thom,
Thank you so much for an amazing four days and for welcoming us into your home just like friends would do.
I can’t even begin to tell you how sad I am to leave – if I could stay forever then I think I would. From Hiep’s AMAZING cooking, to our peaceful and successful fishing trips with Tung, to our afternoons sat on a beach (Cham island) with no-one else around except a couple of cows, every moment on the island has been like magic and will be a memory that will stay with me forever. You are such a wonderful family and such lovely and friendly people and I feel so lucky to have met you and shared in a few days of your lives. I leave you with sad face but with wishes for so much luck and happiness for the future of your family.
Lots and lots of love and massive THANK YOU – CAM ON!

Dear Mama and Papa
This place (Bai Huong – Cham island) is amazing, we have completely fallen in love, both of us, with the place and also the people. Everyone is so friendly saying “HELLO” with a big smile in their face. We have enjoyed this three days so much, and Mama Nhi and Papa Lo have really been the best! Mama’s food is incredible, and she want let you be hungry even for a minute. Papa took us fishing, snorkelling, and out for a jungle trek, we enjoyed everything! We will never forget this place, hope we will come back one day. Truly, our days in Vietnam. We will recommend you for all of our friends!
Thank you so much mama and papa!

Un, dos, tres… Salut!!!
At the beginning of our travel in Vietnam we were not really really happy, because we found some people a little bit annoying and trying to sell us everything. “Homestay, homestay! Motorbike… Buy from me good luck for you!”
Here in Cham Island, everything changed, we found our family, Hiep and Tung, the best hosts ever, and friends in especilly the mall, smart and chilled, lovely too!
From the beginning we feel like at home, when you are a child and you don’t stop receiving love and food.
We will miss especially this place, not only for the landscapes, that are amazing. If you go to the beach you have to go to the second one, one hour from here, it’s paradise! Also we will miss the beers at the night, playing cards until the electricity turns off and the biggest smiles that we have ever received!
Thank you really really!
We love you and of course we will come back

Dear Hiep and Tung,
Just to say a huge thank you for our amazing stay here with you (on Cham islands).
Really enjoyed every minute and wish that we could stay longer.
We really enjoyed our fishing and snorkelling with Tung.
I am very sorry for pulling the roof off your boat. Hiep is an amazing cook.
The food was so delicious we will have to come back to learn some recipes from her.
It is so quiet and peaceful here. We loved going to bed and waking up with “NO BEEP BEEP”!!!
Thank you so much, we will be back to visit again.
Lots of love
Jenny and Jason

Sometimes life can change completely. So happened on 23rd February 2014 when my 24 year old son Jelle died, totally unexpected after a terrible accident. Jelle and his girlfriend Phoebe were on Cham Island in August 2013 and when they came back to Holland, Jelle told me about his very special stay with mama & papa. Therefore I am making a very special journey, visiting Vietnam for 2 weeks together with my two daughters Silke and Brechtje and with Phoebe, to experience a little bit of Vietnam that Jelle loved so much, especially this homestay. Only here for 1 night (the boat did not leave earlier from Hoi An) but I feel his presence with great joy, with all my love I leave a littele part of Jelle in Vietnam, his love for the country is everywhere.
