Family Stays in An Bang Beach

We enjoyed living beachfront for almost six weeks in two family friendly stays in An Bang Beach, Vietnam. It was an incredible experience. These homes were found via an Expats group but you are able to book them via AirBnb. I'll also share a couple of other places that some of our friends had stayed at.

This beach was right outside the villas we stayed in.

An Bang is located about 4.5kms from the Hoi An old town (click here if you'd like to see our Hoi An family stays recommendations). If you prefer the beach, you could make this your base and hire a taxi/motorbike/ebike to get to town. Or you could split your stay a few nights in each place. Either way, I hope you get to visit this gorgeous little seaside village, a place that felt like home to us!

Barefoot Beach House

This place is lux. We loved it. Would we stay again? Definitely (we might even go back before we leave Vietnam).


What we loved

  • Location - right on the beach, we could see the ocean from our front porch.
  • The kitchen, it was outdoors. You could cook and see the ocean.
  • Space to play for the kids, room to kick a ball around, safe for them to run down to the beach.
  • The outdoor lounges.
  • The vibe, laid back, beachy, rustic styled. It was perfect for us for a month.
  • Comfortable beds.
  • There was space - three bedrooms, two rooms containing full sized beds, one room with two single beds (one of the full rooms is interconnecting with the room that has two single beds).
  • The alley is safe for the kids to walk up and down, my oldest two frequently visited the bakery and mini marts nearby.
  • There is a washing machine and somewhere to hang your clothing.

Tips

  • Only two rooms interconnect
  • The kitchen and dining area is outside
  • There is no toaster
  • There is no shared living area
  • The outdoor shower isn't in a paved area, so you may need to rinse your feet off with the coconut in the water buckets (opps, I was meant to replace that Coconut Scoop)
  • The shops are conveniently close - perhaps this can be inconvenient if your kids are independent and like to buy lollies, ice cream, coconut tarts, fizzy drinks and chewing gum. We spent a lot on these 'extras'.
  • There are bikes here, however when we visited, only two were in usable condition. We ended up hiring an e-bike from The Cosy Corner Cafe (a short walk away).

Book on AirBnb

Beach Front Villa

We moved to the Beach Front Villa (right next door to Bare Foot Beach Front Villa) at the end of our stay because they had incoming guests. I hadn't confirmed if we were extending our stay and we were happy to remain beachfront!

I'd also be more than happy to stay here again!

This place is perfect for families who want a beachside home

What we loved

  • Location - right on the beach, we could see the ocean from the outdoor dining table at the top of the dunes.
  • Space to play for the kids, room to kick a ball around, safe for them to run down to the beach. There was even a play house and a swing.
  • The outdoor shower is in a better spot than the one at Bare Foot, your feet don't get dirty walking from the shower to the porch.
  • The layout of this space was perfect for a family. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms (one is an ensuite with a massive bath tub). The master room has a full sized bed, a second room has a double bed. Both of these rooms have doors that open up onto the main porch. There is a kids room with two sets of bunks and a car bed perfect for toddlers. There is a indoor lounge with TV and open plan spacious kitchen.
  • The kitchen is large and has a bigger fridge than Bare Foot Beach Front Villa.
  • There is a washing machine and somewhere to hang your clothing.
  • The outdoor lounges.
  • Comfortable beds.
  • The same Alley as we had for Bare Foot!
  • You can request a BBQ - they will bring you a Vietnamese style one!

Tips

  • This one is wooden so we noticed a few more creepy crawlies here. It wasn't a bother for us as we were only there a week. 
  • No bikes with this place.
  • You can request a BBQ - they will bring you a Vietnamese style one!

Places our friends stayed

The Chi Villa

Our friends from Kool Kidz Travel stayed at this An Bang villa while we lived at the beach. We enjoyed a massive Kiwi/British BBQ while we were there.

The Chi Villa, Best Family Stays in An Bang, Vietnam - World Travel Ambitions - Family Life Outside the Box

We enjoyed a Kiwi/British BBQ at The Chi Villa during our stay in An Bang, Vietnam

It's a great spot with a fantastic location in a hidden alley off the main road. This home is big and beautiful and includes a private pool. Each room has it's own bathroom with outdoor (and indoor) showers. The Chi Villa is a luxury home, and would be wonderful if you want something big, lux and comfortable for your An Bang stay.


What we loved about our friends home

  • Location - perfect spot in the village, close to restaurants, the markets, the beach, everything really.
  • The big swimming pool was wonderful.
  • The outdoor shower was in a good spot.
  • The layout of this space was perfect for a family, you've really got to go have a snoop through the AirBnb photos! 
  • The kitchen is large and has a bigger fridge than Bare Foot Beach Front Villa.
  • You can request a BBQ - they will bring you a Vietnamese style one!

Tips

  • This doesn't have a washing machine
  • No bikes included
  • There is an empty well at the end of the swimming pool which may be a bit of a worry if you have smaller toddlers who don't understand how to keep themselves safe yet (both our families had 3/4 year olds and were fine with the well - the smaller ones understood not to climb up on it).
  • The pool is not fenced (all our kids were confident swimmers so it wasn't an issue for us)

Jasmine Garden House

Another An Bang Beach family stay is the Jasmine Garden Villa. Our friends stayed here and it is located on the same Alley as our beach front villas. This place was cute and cosy, perfect for a smaller / younger family. It is more modern and chic than our beach houses and has a fully equipped kitchen (including a toaster) and laundry. 


What we loved

  • A great location on a great little alley a one minute walk to the beach
  • Next to a restaurant called Moon (we didn't try this one but our neighbours said it was good)
  • Very beautiful, compact design
  • It had a toaster and blender

Tips

  • A karaoke bar sits on the alley behind it. Beware if you are a light sleeper (although our experience is they are most often done by 10pm).
  • It is compact, so if your kids need a bit of extra space, it might not be for you.
  • No bikes.

An Bang Coco Villa

This villas was also on the same alley as our beach front villas. his place was cute and cosy, perfect for a smaller / younger family. It is more modern and chic than our beach houses and has a fully equipped kitchen (including a toaster) and laundry. 


What we loved

  • The location on a little alley footsteps to the beach
  • It has bikes (my daughter thinks)
  • The outdoor lounge by the pool
  • It had a toaster and blender
  • Interconnecting rooms

An Bang Beach Family Stays Recommended by Locals

When we decided to base ourselves in Hoi An and An Bang during the Covid-19 pandemic, we met another Kiwi family who have lived in the area since 2018. They shared with us some An Bang Beach family stays in a document. Here are their recommendations:

Sol An Bang Beach Resort and Spa

We didn't stay here, it was closed to new guests during Covid. We do know where this place is. It's in a quiet area of An Bang Beach, south of the main area. There is a great beach club near by and it's also close to some awesome bars and cafes.

Aira Boutique Hoi An Hotel & Spa

Aira Boutique Hotel is another awesome looking place to stay (I think I might try it if we can't get our beach houses on our next trip). Another familiar spot, this hotel is on a cute little alley on the way to the main beach. It is footsteps from two really gorgeous bars, Shore Club and Deckhouse. It's worth a look if you like to be close to the action!
