The 28-room guesthouse is owned by Ponheary Ly and her family; natives of Siem Reap; and managed by Lori Carlson who hails from Austin, Texas. At the end of the Khmer Rouge era, the Lys had to rebuild their lives from less than scratch. Their guesthouse stands as a testament to the resilience of the human spirit and the power of family. Three generations (including the eight children you may see running around!) of friendly Lys live in the private residence with Lori living on-site as well. All will ensure that you are well cared for during your Seven Candles stay.


  • 24 hour security
  • Bicycles that guests can borrow for free (mountain bikes to rent for 5 USD / day)
  • Each room has a booklet of Lori's current restaurant picks, complete with a map showing locations
  • Free Wi-Fi and computers for guests' use
  • Small library of books, games and movies
