Closest to the ferry
The main advantage of staying at Nam Thanh Homestay is you can walk there (and back) from the ferry landing which is only about 500 metres away.
It is also a slightly more traditional set-up as the rooms (or at least the one we were shown) appeared to be within the family home. It was a very simple room, fan–cooled with shared bathroom facilities and not much else. The family though struck us as friendly and the price was not unreasonable for the standard.
The location is roughly a 10–15 minute walk from the ferry landing, meaning you are not a captive audience as far as food and drink goes (unlike at the other places we have listed), so this may appeal to some. The homestay grounds are littered with ponds and hammocks and we think it would be prudent to pack some mosquito repellent if you decide to head here. Note, the location isn’t quite as peaceful as some of the others on the island thanks to the scooters whizzing past just outside the gates.
