Nice place overlooking rice paddies and water. Away from the craziness of Hoi An Old Town, though you will need to rent a bicycle or motorbike to get around. Halfway between beach and old town. Rooms kinda look like hotel rooms, with wardrobe and nice bathroom, communal kitchen downstairs. Mostly long-term residents, both expat and Vietnamese. Really honest and helpful landlady. No table in room, but landlady let me take a table from the rooftop terrance for my bedroom. Internet was sort of unstable when I was there due to broken wires, but the landlady and her husband were actively working with the internet company to fix it when I left so should be solved by now.
