3 bedroomed( all with en suite) house on the Mekong River in Vientiane in Laos
Gita and John are teachers ( both 63) so we can take off during the holidays ( July - 4 weeks - and December - 2 weeks - and April - just over one week) We can also take additional time off as we plan for retirement. We love to travel. John loves his golf. We have done several home exchanges in Australia, Canada, Luxembourg and Portugal.
Our house is literally on the beautiful Mekong river. You step out of the sliding doors to enjoy wonderful views of the Mekong and Thailand on the other side. We have a 15 m infinity swimming pool where you can cool off during the hot season. ( April to August). Too cold to swim from December to February.We have two bedrooms in the main part of the house, with a long lounge / dining room and kitchen.We have a live-in maid ( Filipino) who can be available ( small payment)
We have a separate bedroom above the garage which is like a independent apartment by itself with a large bedroom and attached bathroom.
We have a vehicle that can be included in the exchange.
We have a small dog ( Cwtch) who is a Swedish Valhund and she is very friendly but initially very shy.
As we are so close to the Mekong, our garden was recently swept away by the river, so we are having to do some renovations to our garden. So until around March 2019, our swimming pool is out of use. So sorry about this.
Vientiane city centre is around 15 minutes away. We live in a Village ( BO AU / BO KENYANG) which is very nice....however, no one speaks english...hahahaha...nice to go for early morning/evening walks.
We are only 10 to 15 minutes from Vientiane Centre. We are also close to some of the sights ( Buddha Park, Patuxai, Thaluang Temple) as well as golf course. (all within 15 to 20 minutes drive)
Nice to drive into the city to enjoy a lovely breakfast in one of the French type cafes ( Annabelles) or a tasty evening meal.
