Photo of Green Hill Guesthouse
The original three-storey white manse is a 1970s relic: breezy, airy and retro-fabulous, like your aunt’s home (hello coloured bathroom fixtures!) but everything looks absolutely spic and span and in good working order. Rooms have also been upgraded with a wall-mounted flatscreen TV with satellite, air-con, fridge, hot water bathrooms and WiFi. We especially love the top floor room which has large wraparound windows and a fantastic view of the entire beach and treetops.

A more recent building addition looks very pretty and charming from the outside but lacks character inside. The interiors look more like what you would expect in a contemporary Vietnamese guesthouse: sparkling tile floor, a few bits of charmless furniture and a modern bathroom. It’s perfectly fine and budget travellers will probably want to choose one of these to save money, but there’s just something so cheerful about the older house. Either way, Green Hill is highly recommended for backpackers. The property has a leafy garden and plenty of vines and potted plants to make it feel very homey. The place has obviously been well taken care of. The caretaker is a sweet woman and though she doesn’t speak English, should you need something she can phone the owner who does.
