In the thick of the Long Beach action
Follow the trickle of people down Lane 118 through Long Beach village and you’ll eventually hit Phuong Binh House, their bungalows and restaurant in the epicentre of Long Beach action, where most visitors seem to gather.
A tight, neat row of 20 brick bungalows runs up from the beach and they offer guests simple, clean rooms with a front terrace. The most expensive are the two bungalows directly on the beach, and while this seems like it would be the most desirable, it is very exposed – it abuts their popular Sunset Grill restaurant. The other bungalows offer a degree more privacy and peace.
All rooms come with large bed, WiFi, safe, mosquito net and private bathroom with shower. Some rooms are fancier and more spacious than others, and frills such as fridge, air-con and wardrobe have been added. During high season, they impose three- to five-night minimum stays on some rooms.
The deciding factor is location. If you want to be close to the Long Beach action -- beach eateries, bars and a social atmosphere -- this is the place.
