vrbo cambodia

Cambodia is at the top of the list of must-visit places of history buffs, eager to learn more about Khmer history and culture through the various temples and structures in the country. However, the state is also at a stage in development, as the rise of new Western-style buildings mark its move towards urbanization. The unique combination of traditional and modern is also translated into the various accommodation options within the country. Here are the best Vrbo vacation rentals in Cambodia!

Traditional accommodations

Cambodia guests who want to experience staying in traditional lodgings can stay in one of these. Don’t make the mistake of assuming that these are rustic accommodations: all of these offer a modern take of Khmer architecture, complete with creature comforts.

1. Terra Amata Villa (from 300 USD)

Terra Amata Villa is located five minutes from Siem Reap’s Pub Street, but you wouldn’t know that it is in close proximity to the party capital of the city, as it is located in a quiet neighborhood, with the chirping of cicadas lulling you to sleep at night. Booking here will provide you with exclusive access to an in-house pool and a private garden. Spa services are also provided in the villa.

While the villa has two kitchens, you can actually order a package inclusive of breakfast and dinner, an option that is not surprising, considering that one of the owners is a French chef. Guests are also provided free tuktuk rides at any time. They can also borrow the bicycles for free should they wish to explore Siem Reap, particularly the Angkor complex, on their own.

2. Khmer Villa

The Khmer Villa is three minutes away from the city proper, but its restful and beautiful environment makes up for this. The two-story teak house comes with its own garden, a swimming pool, a bar, a pool table, and a pond, where guests can spend the day relaxing as they watch the fish swim by. Wi-Fi connection and cable television are also offered. The villa has its own refrigerator, microwave oven, coffee maker, stove, and toaster. Dishes and utensils are also available.

The grounds are big enough to accommodate as many as 14 people. Children are allowed, so this is a good choice for those who want to go on a family vacation in Cambodia. Housekeeping services are included.
