Suncheonman Minsok(Folk) Hanok Pension is located on a high plain overlooking Suncheonman Bay Ecological Park. It has been in business since 2012. Because it’s an old house that has been passed down through four generations and it may be uncomfortable for the guests to stay in, the house was renovated with five more guestrooms added in August 2013. The guesthouse was named by the owner's son, because the house has all the features of a traditional Korean house and commands a great view of Suncheonman Bay. The guestrooms are furnished with a modern bathroom, kitchen, TV, and air conditioner, but the floor is made of a thick layer of red clay using the traditional Korean floor heating system, which traps the warmth in the clay for a long time after being heated. The structure is built with Korean pine wood, which is good for your health and smells good too. Located in the highest part of the village, the place commands a panoramic view of all the rice paddies and reed fields. In early winter, you can also see the migratory birds that are listed as a natural monument and black cranes feeding on the rice paddies. The Suncheonman Bay Ecological Park is only a 10-minute walk from the pension, so you can take a short walk to the park and enjoy the sunset on the Yongsan Observatory there. The natural landscape around the pension is a sight to behold in itself during the daytime, and the night view of the new town is also beautiful during the nighttime. There is a wooden deck in front of the pension where you can enjoy barbecue while taking in the night view. One of the best things about staying at this pension is that you can pick vegetables from the kitchen garden cultivated by the owner and his wife. One of the reasons why this pension became popular is the food prepared by the owner's wife. Her food was introduced in the popular Korean TV show “Korean Cuisine and Dining” on the KBS channel, which introduced the family food of Jeollanam-do. All the dishes are made of all natural ingredients without any artificial flavors. The food is so good that some guests actually come here just for the food, without staying overnight. They say the dishes are nothing fancy, as all you will get is soup, grilled fish, and seasoned cockles, but they are some of the best you can find in the country. Her rolled omelete made of fertile eggs from the chickens grown by the owner is particularly popular among the regulars. The price for the food is very affordable as well.

Sunset (Ilmol) Hanok is located in Waon Village in Suncheon, South Jeolla Province. Its proximity to Waon Beach, a famous site for sunset watching, and the unspoiled tidelands of Suncheonman Bay make the pension a great healing place. An hour-long mountain trail winds through the hills surrounding Waon Village, and a four kilometer-paved road network offers opportunities for jogging or biking.
The Sunset Hanok takes the form of a ㄷ-shaped “hanok” with a grass lawn at the center. Stepping into the courtyard brings one to a view of the expansive tideland beyond the tiled clay fence and the mountains surrounding the village. There are three Korean-style floor bedding rooms and a bedroom in the house. Nangman and Haengbok, with traditional “gudeul” floor heating, offer a great view of the scenery and the sunset from the comforts of the rooms. The Sarang and Hwamok rooms use wood-fired heating, which offers great warmth during the winter season. Hwamok, in particular, is spread out between the main building and the “anchae” (inner chamber), combining a bedroom and a wide floor-heated Korean-style room suitable for large groups. All rooms in Sunset Hanok are equipped with a kitchen sink, induction stove, refrigerator, and cooking utensils, and there is also an outdoor barbeque area for guests. These features make the pension highly popular for family travelers.
