We stayed three nights with Sonny and Gerard in August 2017, and enjoyed every minute of it. We couldn't have chosen a better place to start our Yunnan family trip. A super comfortable home away from home, right in the middle of a traditional Bai village. Sonny gave us a wonderful tour through the village, minority markets, Xizhuo, Donglianghua, Zhoucheng and Weishan. As mentioned by other reviewers, Sonny is a fantastic cook. The breakfast at Dali Garden was the best that we had during our entire stay in Yunnan! Due to power outage that lasted well into the evening, we were invited by Sonny's mother, who lives next door, to an improvised yet unforgettable dinner cooked over an outdoor wok stove in her courtyard. The apartment was more than spacious for 4 people, very comfortable and clean. Except for Gerard's smoking at the dining table (we found this quite disturbing), the overall experience was just impeccable. Thank you for the wonderful time and so many beautiful memories that we will cherish forever. We wish Sonny and Gerard all the best, and hope to come back again!

We spent three days with Sonny and Gerard at their place close to Dali. The house is wonderful and very large, with a very nice peaceful garden in a small village. Our host are exceptional (we also spent 10 days with Sonny who is a great tour guide in the region). I loved the breakfast too (everything homemade and cooked in front of us). Breafkast and dinners with our hosts who know the region very well was a definite plus. And also walking the dog at night in the vicinity was fun. We did recommend Dali Garden to friends and family.

We returned to relative gloom here in Suzhou: lots of grey, rain and miserable cold. We have wonderful memories, memories that will remain with us for years to come, of your B and B and the good times we had. No question, our time with you was special. It certainly is odd to have become so familiar with you and then to leave knowing the chances of ever meeting again are slim at best (unless you plan to come to Canada!) Life is strange, but in this case, I see our time together as a kind of "gift", a special event that shows how humans can enjoy one another with little time needed for the "time to get to know you". I hope your plans to build a unique resort work out the way you want and in the meantime, your travel business prospers as well as your time together as family.
Some of the photos I took while at your place turned out well. They will provide a lot of joy as time goes on. Thanks again for your extra hospitality and great company. Give our best to Tiantian and tell her to get her nose out of the books every once in a while! Take care,
Andy and Janice

Room Tip: Double and twin room are not big but every thing is there. 3e floor apartment will be big. Hospitality is great.

Dear guests,
Thank you all for being with us in Dali Garden Bed & Breakfast and we thank you for writing those beautiful words about us and our small B&B.
We also loved your companion and wish we will meet you again in future. Maybe we welcome you in future in our boutique hotel Villa Verde in the same village Xiangyangxi.

I was lucky to find such a beautiful place in my first trip in China,i love Dali. we lived in the well decorated and special house for three nights.Everything in the house gived me deep impression. The hotel is sited in a small town where many Bai minorities are living in. So it was amazing for me to know more about the culture about minorities.Also i really like the house for its lovely garden where i can spend my all day with a book. I love the delicious breakfast which is abundant. In addition, the room was neat and clear and the decoration was well designed by the owners. Lastly, i want to say thanks for the owners who is a couple of husband is from Holland and wife is a local Bai minority, with their hospitality, my husband with me spent a enjoyable time in the small hotel.I hope we can come here again,in Dali, in this hotel.

Room Tip: have a good mood and enjoy it.

As the earlier reviews, there is nothing changed. Sunny & Gerard were only busy in their (beautiful) hotel villa verde. Hospitality still great. Soon they will have a family apartment on the 3rd floor, will be great.
