I read somewhere on the net months ago about some very eccentric house that was built here in VN by a woman, that is available to tourists to visit. I can't find it in my guidebook, and having trouble doing a netsearch. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

Are you thinking of the Crazy House in Da Lat? If so, you can read more about it here -- there's even a pic!

Okay, I went to see that yesterday, and I can honestly say that it was one of the highlights of my trip. That was the most bizarre and eccentric bit of architecture that I've seen anywhere, and I would live there if I could. If you like architecture that is different, you can stay there too. I think it costs around US$30-50 for a room, and we would have stayed if we'd had time. And yeah, the coffee is pretty good, especially when drunk in a fantasy cave house.

Bumping some old stuff today, but...
...you can stay in the Crazy House and maybe you should. It's much more expensive than the usual, but it's one of a kind. It's pretty badly made once you get up close, the curtains are terrible and there're few mod cons. Tourists will be rattling your door at 7AM.
You will be staying in somewhere you will probably never replicate. You can watch sunrise/set in the house. You can wander through the marvellousness at night, with no-one around. You can take tea and talk to the tourists wandering through your room. You can have a bear for a fireplace...

I just did a quick google and came up with a couple of online booking options:
I'm sure there are more... and I can't vouch for the above booking sites, as I only came across them via google.
