My month at Sabine’s was very special and easy to recommend. The bungalow was comfortable and charming, and the entire homestay space has a distinct sense of tranquility. Individuals looking for an artistic retreat would be well advised to consider Dragon Rock Boat, which represents excellent value and rare quality of refuge too. (I was most grateful for the awesome desk and chair Sabine hooked me up with). Indeed, Sabine’s hospitality is terrific, and the same is true of all who live/work there - the general friendliness adds much to the relaxing nature of the place, to say nothing of the wonderful local knowledge and outstanding food (I routinely had breakfast, lunch, dinner on site, and have rarely eaten so well). The district is great to explore, and I will miss riding the flat but picturesque countryside. The homestay strikes a great balance between rural escape, proximity to village life (all directions), and ease of access to Ninh Binh’s downtown. There are many options for interesting day trips, and when the difficult day came for me to leave, I was totally looked after by Sabine and Dung who sorted me out with a direct, cheap, and super-convenient bus to Hanoi’s airport. I certainly hope I will make it back to Sabine’s in future and the memories I made here (not least of the dogs, the ducks, and a cat too) will be dear to me always.

Our stay at dragonboat rock was just absolutely perfect. We liked everything, so we will mention a couple of highlights :) The hospitality of Sabine has no limits and already on the first day she took us on a bike tour showing the beautiful1y scenery of Ninh Binh that ended with a nice cold bia hoi. The garden is absolutely amazing and a great place to recharge your batteries. The food that they prepare everyday with love and ingredients of the garden is the best we have so far in vietnam! We will definitely recommend this place to everybody and hope to come back some time!

The place is clean with beautiful traditional Vietnamese garden view. Even though the location is quite far from main attractions but it gave me a quiet place to stay. Nice room with large bed. Just 1 thing should be improved is the wifi in the room is really weak.

We are two german girls which spent two nights at the dragon boat rock and it was really amazing. After the really busy Hanoi we decided to spent more than only a daytrip in this region. Sabine has some bicycles which we used to explore the beautiful nature of Ninh Binh. Some really nice places are nearby, like Hang Mua or the Trang An boattours. The rooms are really lovely and within a garden with cute terasses. Furthermore we have to say that the breakfast, lunch and dinner is really amazing. We will never forget the "rüsli" as breakfast.
