My name is Trang. I'm the mother of the family. I'm the one who welcome foreign guests and can guide them throughout the beautiful Cat Ba Island. I'm also a sport and biology teacher in secondary school. The father is Dai. He can cook the best pancakes of the island as well as many seafood and yummy western and vietnamese dishes. He is a real Chef !
In the family, there are two children. the 6 year old daughter, her name is Ha Anh. Her nickname is where the name of the homestay comes from. The 3 year old boy's nickname is Corn. His name is Phuc.
Everybody has their dreams, me too, my biggest dream is that my daughter can walk. My daughter has cerebral palsy, she can not move with her legs, though I still hope her legs are still moving despite being weak and slow. she is very cute, learning very fast especially when studying with foreigners.
My second dream is to do my favorite job. I work as an apprentice teacher and besides, my favorite job is to chat, exchange culture and language with all the guests from all over the world.
My third dream is to travel all over my country and then the countries of the world. So, I work hard, self-sufficient to have enough money to cover my life and fulfill my dream of traveling.
My husband is a real chef, so he gave up the hotel with the dream salary to go home to open the Homestay & Restaurant
I would like to find volunteers who have the same dream and ambition to be able to join us in building a house where every visitor to us feels warm and happy, free live and love...
Our homestay is 4km from Cat Ba city, in the beautiful Cat Ba island in Ha Long bay.
Currently, due to the effects of the Covid 19 epidemic, our business is temporarily closed.
If I do not reply to your letter within 7 days, that means we have enough volunteers.
Babysitting and creative play
Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Volunteers can take some free time to borrow our motorbike and enjoy the beautiful Cat Ba Island and natural park. As part of the family, you will benefit free food (very nice food !). You will experiment life in a vietnamese family and take part in our local and daily life.
Participation in tours at extremely favorable prices
I have 2 children, my oldest daughter, Ha Anh, has cerebral palsy, affecting her motor activity (she can't walk on her own, but can crawl, hold, cling). I want to find a volunteer who loves children, who can help my daughter improve her English, French, German or Spanish. She speaks English quite well and you can easily communicate with us in this language at our family. In your free time, you can help me take her to the beach, go around the island by motorbike. I want to find an active female volunteer who loves children.
