Interaction with guests
Our house is located right next door, so you are just easy shout out away, but each house has it's own deck for private relaxation. If you need help, we'll be available, but if you are looking to get away from it all, you'll hardly notice us at all.

Our three-night stay at Purple House One could not have been better. Clean, thoughtfully appointed and right on the water in a real neighborhood. The hosts are delightful and helpful. We were able to book a private boat tour which left right from the property....More

About the neighbourhood
Saigon Bay is located just 15 minutes walk from town or a quick $1 taxi ride. This is a local third world neighbourhood, so is colorful, rustic, authentic, and a lot less touristy and as a result, not as well kept as resort locations around the islands. If you want to experience the island as the locals do, then this is the location for you. Due to the garbage issue on the islands, we ask all our guests to recycle in order to reduce our own personal footprint.

There is a local supermarket a few minutes walk from the house where basics can be purchased. There is also a water refilling station at the Bocas Brewery just 120 meters down the road

Local taxi's can be arranged and cost $1 to town and $2 to the airport. Cycling is the most popular mode of transport and bikes can be rented in town daily or weekly.
