"Leon is the best host that we have ever dealt with. Very responsive and provided so much local knowledge and information. Will definitely be back and would definitely look for a property that Leon hosts as he goes well over and above what we expected."
The apartment is located right on the beach in the expat area. 29m to the beach! The hottest Vietnamese and western run bars and restaurants are just around the corner. This by far the most popular area with expats for a reason.
The apartment has all the amenities you expect. If something isn't clear or you have a special request just ask me.
Compared to the other apartments in the same building this is the bigger one (25 m2) and most significantly differs in that it does have a hot tub and a great view.
Interakcija s gostima
I enjoy being an Airbnb, super host. For me hosting you is more than just handing you out the keys to your apartment. For many guests, I am a guide, concierge, organizer. I love to share my experience and knowledge of Da Nang - my hometown of choice - with other people. I also understand that every person is different and has his expectations and requests for privacy. There is absolutely nothing wrong with minimal interaction, but I think you will miss out on a great experience that makes Airbnb such a great community.
Always know that you can reach out to me for guidance, advice, and support.
WiFi and 3G?
There is a city wide open WiFi and coffees with WiFi everywhere. You will never need to pay for WiFi. Just ask somebody for the WiFi, and you will get it. Most WiFis have creative passwords like (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) or the street name. Da Nang is a giant “free” WiFi hub. People will gladly help you to access the internet.
If you want you can get a prepaid SIM with more than 1GB of Data for around 9,- USD. Just let me know if your smartphone uses Nano, Micro or Standard SIMs, and I will organize one for you.
Getting Ripped Off?
The people of Da Nang are friendly, and there is no need to fear of getting ripped off on every corner. Coffee on the street corner goes for around 10.000VND, a Bánh mì for (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN). Getting a scooter refueled for (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) VND. If you need to buy little conveniences, you can visit small seven elevens like (Vinmart or K-Mart and even pay via credit card). In the rare situation that you get ripped off just call me.
Don’t hit what’s in front of you. Never expect anything on four wheels to stop for you. Trucks always have the priority! Always expect a bike to come towards you and never take your eyes off the road. Make use of the horn. A short beep translates to “I am here, ” and you can use it 100 times a day. It's not considered aggressive to use the horn. Stick to these rules and make sure you test the brakes on every bike you jump on. Seriously, check the brakes and don’t expect them to work. If you need to rent a bike, I will help you organize one that is reliable and maintained.
Getting Approached by Vietnamese?
They like to greet you :) Vietnamese are curious about you and often like to take the opportunity to exercise the English they’ve learned. Just greet back and continue with what you do. Typically they will respect your privacy beyond that. Trust your instincts but don't be overly suspicious. You will also notice that Vietnamese treat beggars with ignorance and not aggressive. Do the same.
Giving a tip?
You are not expected to give tips in restaurant or taxis.
A different story are Spas. The staff is usually paid a very low base salary with tips making the majority of the salary. Even Vietnamese customers will give tips in Spas.

My name is Leon and, originally from Berlin, Germany, I fell in love with the beauty of Vietnams nature, the delicious foods and the friendliness of its people while traveling around the country by myself on a motorbike trip for 3 and a half months.
Da Nang is considered THE MOST livable City in all of Vietnam and I am very committed ensuring you'll get the most of your time here!
During your stay, you will always get excellent recommendations of where to go to, where you can experience authentic and delicious local restaurants and street food areas and which bars are worth checking.
Among a lot more!
I'm a traveler myself and having explored this vibrant City and its surroundings for more than a year now you will have access to all of my professional and personal network to have the best trip possible.
"Thanks so much Leon! Our time in Danang was unforgettable. We had so much fun and can't wait to get back there. You're a great host, thanks for your help along the way. Cheers! Beth & Ash."
