Response from Max And Tracy:
Just to clarify, I had lengthly conversations with the prospective guest and the day before they were to arrive agreed to change their reservation with no charge even though it meant I lost hosting another guest that night. The evening before the new reservation the guest had to cancel again and requested a refund which left me another night loosing guests during our busiest time of year. It is inaccurate that I did not answer. I responded and explained why I could not give a refund in line with the cancelation policy.

Cozy, authentic place to stay at! If you go to Dali, this is what you want. It is basic and simple, but in a cute and true way. I'd have stayed for a lot longer if I could.

Better than expectation! Super good location with nightlife just in walking distance,but also can enjoy a quite night. Decorations are traditional but create a really interesting atmosphere. Although we haven't met the owner, Tingting who saw us to our room is very helpful. Mattresses are comfortable.highly recommended!

Very quiet place, good location near a gate of the old city. Price is very reasonable and room is ok except we were in second floor and had toilet smell near our entrance door. As a wooden house we can hear everything from outside but the location is very peaceful so it was ok. Water pressure was too low and it's cold day so for us it was a bad point. We were disappointed that in the beginning the waitress refuse to keep our bags for an half day as our train was at night and we wanted to visit a bit the city. But after calling the owner they kept the bag for us so it was cool, maybe it was new staff... wifi is slow just enough to check email but can't upload or send photos. For our first experience of airbnb we are quite satisfied by the service and thanks our host

Max And Tracy User Profile

Max and Tracy have been business partners for over 9 years working in Vietnam before coming to Dali in 2009 when they established SleepyFish Lodge together. In Vietnam together with 2 other partners they established a cafe and bakery to help Street kids so they are not new to the hospitality business in Asia. Max is British and Tracy American so you can get the best of both worlds as far as food and language is concerned! They both have a love for Dali, the people, and the beautiful scenery of the area. They try to make everyones stay at SleepyFish special.

"We have made SleepyFish family friendly with a big garden, lots of fish, birds, chinchillas and 2 lovely golden retrievers to welcome all guests! We also try to make everyone feel at home with Western cooking at our cafe and a relaxed atmosphere with good, soft beds, hot water for showers and ease of booking tours and travel through us at reception. All our reception staff speak fluent English and Chinese so you can get all the help you need before and during your stay with us. We would love to have you stay with us!"

Not only family friendly we also cater for group retreats.
