We had a wonderful time at this property. The beach was a skip and a hop away and the house was beautifully appointed for our stay. This is a wonderful base for anyone wanting a more authentic travel experience in the Hoi An area. We opted for this property instead of one of the bigger resorts in Danang or the surrounding areas because it provided room for our large family and allowed us to be close to the local culture. Going into Hoi An was convenient (a 10 minute ride/few dollars each way by taxi). We enjoyed the local morning market down the road and used the bikes that the owners provided for our stay. The housekeeper and gardenskeeper were lovely and take pride in their work. We truly enjoyed this stay and would recommend it highly.
I spent a week in Annam House earlier this year with good friends and 4 small children. We have lived in Southeast Asia for 15 years, and know Vietnam well, so I don't say this lightly - this was one of the very best holidays I've ever had.
Fantastic location in a quiet beachside village. Its a 10minute walk to the restaurants and bars of An Bang Beach (its a 60 second walk to the beach itself), but far away enough to remain very quiet in the evenings. The house itself is in a traditional Vietnamese style, but with modern touches and very comfortable. The Vietnamese family next door is there pretty much around the clock to help out with anything you'd need, and its very easy to grab a taxi in to Hoi An whenever you want.
Staying in Annam House is so much nicer than staying in one of the big hotels in Hoi An or along the beach, I can't recommend it highly enough. Its a perfect holiday spot for a family. We plan on making our stay there an annual event.
Have just stayed at this delightful house for five nights. We met with our son and partner here who are travelling around Asia. Haviing stayed in Hoi An last year we knew this would be a perfect place to get together. Annam House was ideal for us. From the moment we arrived we were greeted by Glen who ran through all the local amenities, then we were so well looked after by everyone. We were not allowed to do much as wash a cup and the fridge was stocked as we requested by the lovely Vietnamese couple next door, on a daily basis, normally before we were out of bed in the morning..
The house is not so much as a five minute walk to the beach where there are numerous sun beds to hire at ridiculous prices, and a good choice of drinks and local food available all day.
Taxis into town were cheap and arrived within minutes of being requested.
All in all we had a wonderful time here in this charming ,spotlessly clean house and would recommend it to anyone.

Annam House was perfect. My husband & I, 2 young children (6&12) and my I laws (6 all together) stayed for 6 nights & did not want to leave. Absolute value for money. The couple who live next door clean and did our washing daily, although they did not speak English we were able to communicate well with them they were lovely. Ms Diem visited daily, she could speak English and got us groceries and helped organise tours & Taylor delivery as no one speaks English well. It was very relaxing, and we loved living with locals, we visited the local market most mornings to get fresh fruit, veggies, bread rolls & seafood that we cooked in our awesome kitchen. We cannot Reccomend this highly enough, the experience was fantastic and we will definitely come back, thank you so much to he staff of Annam House we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
We stayed at Annam House for 13 nights in April 2015. We had previously stayed at the Temple Beach House and had been disappointed when this was already booked for the dates of our planned stay. We needn't have worried...
Annam House is set in a beautiful lush garden with plenty of seating areas in the shade. There is another property adjacent to Annam but has its own separate entrance. The design of the garden protects guests' privacy and I can honestly say it wasn't a problem for us at all.
The house is full of tasteful objects d'art and is beautifully furnished. It is maintained to an extremely high standard by the housekeeper who comes in at least twice a day. She cannot do enough for you yet is unobtrusive and sensitive to your comings and goings. Once you've established your daily routine, she and her husband, who maintains the garden, will ensure that the house is cleaned, beds made and washing up done whilst you are out. It was always a pleasure to come back to. The bed linens were changed at least 3 times during our stay and clean towels were provided as needed. The housekeeper will do your personal laundry daily too.
There are 3 double beds. Be aware that the living room is also a bedroom. This wasn't a problem as there is a very comfortable sitting area on the patio where you can read, have a beer or two and simply relax. There is self contained bedroom/shower room up the quaint spiral staircase and this has its own patio with table and umbrella.
Annam is set just back from the beach in An Bang village. You can reach the beach in no time by following the sandy path track. It is a few minutes walk to an array of beach restaurants. You will find your own favourite!
In the evening it is easy to get a taxi into Hoi An to explore the vast array of high quality restaurants. However, there are some good eateries in An Bang village itself just down the road from the house. These offer good value and we had excellent food on the occasions that we were too lazy to go into town.
It is true that there is some noise from the local environment in the mornings but we were sharing the space of the local people who live and work there? We found it charming.
Lastly, the team are available to assist and advise you during your stay. Again, they are unobtrusive but there should you need them. They will arrange transport to and from the airport and will make sure that the kitchen is stocked with items from a pre-order shopping list provided before you arrive.
I don't know why I'm telling you this. Go and find out for yourselves. You won't be disappointed...
