    Such a sweet and comfortable homestay. It's not right in the city but with a scooter or bike or even by foot very easily reachable. The beach is also just a 25 min walk away. The owners were super helpful and friendly and gave me great advice on...

Company information

The story of Cat Ba Sweet Potato. We are a family of four. My husband, a professional chef, worked over 15 years for 3-star or larger hotels in Cat Ba, Hai Phong and Hanoi. He decided to stop work for others and return home to open a small restaurant for himself. As for me, I am a gym teacher at a high school 2km away from home. I love to work with students every day in the morning with sports games and dances. My hobbies are to exchange culture, make new friends around the world, learn new languages and new dishes, and to learn culture…. We decided to open our restaurant and homestay to welcome our friends from all over the world to Cat Ba and to experience the beautiful island with beautiful Vietnamese scenery, customs, fresh air and good food from the sea. We have 2 children, our 6-year-old daughter, cute and gentle, and 3-year-old son, full of energy and extremely mischievous. Here at Cat Ba Sweet Potato, we don’t just want to make you feel comfortable, we want to make you feel as if you’ve come home to Cat Ba Island. Home cooked meals on a beautiful island, and a caring family will welcome you home every night of your stay.
