|Further details indoors|
Each of the three bedrooms have large queen-size double beds - an extra single bed in one of the bedrooms can be provided if necessary. All of the bedrooms are large - around 25 square meters each. Each room features a ceiling fan, plus a free-standing fan. We don't have air conditioning at the house - there is no need, as the ceilings are very high, there are fans throughout the house, and the house is on a hill, so it benefits from cooling breezes nearly all the time. Each en suite bathroom features a shower, basin and WC. The lounge and kitchen area are combined into a large open plan area, with folding glass doors opening up onto a covered terrace area for dining. The lounge features a comfortable sofa with seating for at least 8 people.
Upstairs, there is a open-sided balcony/terrace area (40 square meters) with more comfortable seating, overlooking the pool and surrounding countryside - a wonderfully cool place to lounge around at any time of the day.
The house has a separate laundry room with automatic washing machine.
|Further details outdoors|
The infinity pool - two meters from the downstairs bedroom - has a swimming jet, allowing you to swim constantly against it, as well as 5 jacuzzi jets. The pool has both sun terrace and shaded terraced area around it. There is also a separate wooden shaded chill-out area in the garden with bean bags and sofa/chairs. All this is set in a lovely tropical garden, and the house is surrounded by a wall which gives complete privacy. There is an outdoor barbeque perfect for fresh seafood from the market!
The South Vietnam region
The dry season here is October to April - at this time of year, rain is very rare, and the weather is nearly always sunny and warm, around 30 degrees, but kept cool by the breezes that blow almost constantly during the day - great for kitesurfing and windsurfing! This is the high season in Mui Ne, with plenty of people in the local town, a very good atmosphere in the restaurants and bars, of which there are plenty.
The rainy season starts in May and runs through to September here. This is actually a fantastic time to be in the area, it is much quieter than normal, cooler (once the rains start properly) and greener. It rarely rains for more than an hour or two during the day, and it is usually still sunny every day, and always pleasantly warm. You may experience the odd grey day with intermittent rain, but its never cooler than 25 degrees.
Mui Ne is situated in the south of Vietnam, about 200km due east of Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), on the South China Sea. The next big city is Phan Thiet and 20 mins drive away. Mui Ne is in the province of Binh Thuan.
