We stopped by here during our visit. Similar to typical historical homes in Hoi An, there is an inner courtyard and upstairs. Take a quick walk through to enjoy the relics. Can get through quite quickly.

Great ancient little home, well kept, nice décor, great tea. Family own and run, it is a nice way to see what the houses look inside and the beautiful furniture. It felt very traditional.
