christian homestay

Our home is friendly and comfortable, and a unique way to connect with Cambodia

We are a Christian family home situated in the Boeung Tum Poun area of Phnom Penh (10 minutes by tuk-tuk from the Russian Market). For over 9 years we have welcomed visitors and volunteer workers to stay with us and share our home.

We offer neat, private guest rooms for up to 3 people – all with private bathrooms, balconies, and fans or air-con – for $15 or $20 a night per room.

We give our guests a warm Cambodian welcome.

We have a tuk-tuk available for hire, and everyone is welcome to eat dinner with us  – we enjoy excellent Cambodian food.

Any profit we make is used to support individuals in employment, education, housing and health.

Please contact us for further information; availability, airport transfer etc. You can also read more about us – and our excellent reviews on

What our guests say about us – …. thanks for helping organise our trip to stay with you …… your house is the best place we’ve stayed. The atmosphere is so warming and Bunthoeurn was amazing, so kind to us and him and his family are such wonderful people. We felt so at home we stayed for a lot longer than planned. We also helped John with Feed My Lambs and had the best experience. Thank you so much I can really feel God in the home –  it was such a relaxing place. (W and E – UK)

Visiting Cambodia opened our eyes to the plight of most people in our known world – it has changed our lives. Staying at The House gave us an opportunity to work on different humanitarian projects. The highlight was working with a team of Cambodians to bring relief (food and medicine) to flood victims (Kath – UK)

As for Cambodia – we loved the whole experience and send you huge quantities of inadequate thanks. What an experience!!! We got a real feeling for Cambodia – in depth and rounded… the kind of understanding that doesn’t come easily… and never comes at all on the usual types of tour/holiday/package etc. …. … thank you for something very special. We feel like we are entitled to say we ‘know’ Cambodia in a small but significant way. (Dr and Mrs Jon Brown – UK)

Thank you for welcoming me to your home. I arrived with an empty heart and in two months it was filled with God’s love (CB – Australia)

Nous avons superbement bien accueillis par Christine et toute la famille élargie (Cambodgiens et expatriés travaillant pour des ONG). Buntheoun, vivant sur place avec sa famille et chauffeur de Tuk-tuk est venu nous chercher à l’aéroport avec son merveilleux sourire et nous a emmené les jours suivants à la découverte de Phnom Penh. Nous nous sommes sentis en famille et c’est ce que nous cherchions. Les enfants ont joué au foot avec les autres petits (4 enfants vivent sur place), nous avons pu échanger avec les uns et les autres sur leur vision du Cambodge. Quelle richesse. Le repas partagé du soir est un vrai régal à la fois pour les plats et pour le temps partagé. (V and family – France)

We really enjoyed our stay at Christine’s. We loved the mixture of Khmer and expats in the house, and especially appreciated all the advice and help given to us in our first week living in Cambodia. We stayed at Christine’s while we looked for an apartment to rent and started language school. We could not have asked for a better springboard to our time in the Kingdom!! (K and C – Canada)

Thank you for showing me ‘real Cambodia’ without you I would never have got away from the tourist trap. (Mark – UK)

I had such an amazing stay at the guest house. The rooms were clean and I felt safe there. Everyone was friendly and felt like family after only 1 week. I would definitely stay again. Thank you once again. I had so much fun with everyone you put me in contact with. (Kate – Australia)

All-inclusive (food, accommodation, transport, an excursion to see the endangered Irrawady dolphins, and a kind and competent English speaking guide) for just $130 per person for 3 days and 2 nights.
