Siem Reap Vegan Villa

Updated January 2019

Vegan Villa is permanently closed. It was popular, very popular and we knew we had to make changes for it to fit in with our lives. We had over 150 guests from all over the world and made lifelong friends with some of them. We loved being airbnb hosts and were obviosuly doing something right as the bookings kept coming as did the 5 star reviews and Superhost status which we held for the whole time we were open. So if you stayed with us, thank you and if we were fully booked when you came to town we are sorry. Watch this space for some exciting news later this year where we will be able to welcome you back to Siem Reap and show you everything there is to know about life as a vegan in Temple Town!

We love to meet other vegans (but also love meeting non-vegans too!)

Back in January 2014, we gave up our lives in the UK and set off on an indefinite vegan travel adventure which without a doubt, turned out to be awesome. We visited multiple countries in Asia and then seemed to get happily stuck in Cambodia, where we set up Siem Reap Vegan Villa.When we lived at home in the UK we hardly ever met other vegans. Now we get a steady stream of vegan people coming to stay with us and our world is filled with vegans. As you can imagine, this is amazing.

Here’s us shopping with Amy and Tom – some of our favourite vegans who came to stay (we stole this photo from their brilliant vegan blog Seeking Skies)

(Read about Tom and Amy’s time in Siem Reap here)

But non vegan people are more than welcome too and we’ve had a whole range of people who aren’t vegans coming to stay. Some people are curious about veganism, others just like the sound of our place and it’s location.

Everyone is welcome at our Siem Reap Vegan Villa airbnb

“The best stories are found between the pages of a passport”

We love to travel, we really do, but getting older and spending so long on the road made us like living out of a bag a lot less than we used to. Setting up Siem Reap Vegan Villa has meant that we get a kind of travel experience whilst we are still at home. We get to share travel stories and tips, hear about the new adventures other people have been on and of course get excited about all the vegan food that is discovered on the way.

Siem Reap Vegan Villa - amazing vegan burger in Manila, Philippines

We booked flights to the Philippines after some lovely Filipino vegans came to stay and told us all about this burger

That burger was from the lovely people at Juicesabel in Manilla by the way… and yes we did eat all of it. And then we ordered another.

We really love Siem Reap and want to share what we know with people who visit

Siem Reap Vegan Villa is just 15 minutes away from Angkor Wat

We love Siem Reap (and not just because we live 15 minutes away from Angkor Wat!)

We’ve fallen in love with Siem Reap with its’ dusty potholed roads full of traditional local life rubbing along nicely with the more upmarket restaurant, bar and hotel scene (and the noisy, touristy Pub Street area). There’s something for everyone in Temple Town which can sometimes make it hard to find the best places. Our Vegan Guide to Siem Reap shows there is an abundance of vegan options to suit all tastes (and wallets) and can be easy to miss out on some amazing vegan choices.

It’s hard not to love seeing things like this every day

We love helping people get then best out of their stay in Siem Reap, it’s such a nice feeling when you can send someone to a place and they come back having really enjoyed themselves. We can tell you the best place in town for a sunset cocktail, where to buy souvenirs that are ethically sourced, how to get the most out of your visit to Angkor Wat and of course where to find the best vegan food in town.

Siem Reap Vegan Villa – a home away from home

Siem Reap Vegan Villa is our home and when you stay we want you to feel at home too. You get your own room (with aircon and a fan) and your own private bathroom but you’re free to use the rest of the house too. We make breakfast every morning including homemade bread, tofu scramble, overnight oats, fruit salad, smoothies, tofu fried rice and endless pots of coffee or tea. We want you to feel as at home as we do.

    We had a wonderful stay at Vegan Villa in February 2017. Caryl and Paul made us feel very welcome and did everything to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. Breakfast was a feast and made a mockery of people who say vegan food is not tasty. Even for a non-vegan, the food was just delicious. We loved having the use of bicycles and finding our way around Siem Reap, following the advice of Paul and Caryl and finding cafes and restaurants we would not otherwise have discovered and too numerous to mention. We enjoyed our night at Phare Circus, the exhibition and talk – SNAP! 150 years of Cambodian Photography – and our trip to the temples away from Angkor Wat, including Koh Ker. Not to forget being included in the Arts and Music Festival events, the highlight of which, for me, was the Joss Stone Concert – a memorable night.
    Thank you Paul & Caryl.

      Come back soon! We LOVED having you both to stay, you were perfect houseguests 🙂 So nice to hear that you love our little home as much as we do and you certainly got the most out of your time in Siem Reap. You took advantage of the best things to do and the best places to eat… and you even managed to get to some more far flung places – you two certainly know how to travel and make the most out of your time in a new place. It was a pleasure having you to stay…
      Caryl and Paul xx
