We caught a boat and were told we were the first to arrive by the river. Cost three times a taxi but we cruised the back steams before arriving. Great people, rooms and food. All the tours, bicycle, sunset cruise, floating markets were terrific. The guides english was terrific and she learns a new word every day. (Stubby Holder was... More

I have just come back from 2 1/2 weeks in Vietnam. We mixed the accommodation up throughout the trip staying at very expensive hotels, mid price boutique hotels and at this wonderful place. I have to commend the owners of this amazing place. It wasn't just a home stay it was a full on experience. Your staff are excellent and... More

What can I say... If I hadn't had a flight booked and Nguyen Shack wasn't fully booked I would still be sitting there. The couple that own this place Theu and Maxime are absolutely amazing, as were there staff, as friendly as you would find anywhere else in the world, instantly I felt at home, more like I was staying...

Wow what a surprise this place is. We caught a taxi from Ho Chi Minh City to Nguyen and its was off the beaten track, the taxi had problems finding. Now that was appealing in itself but when we arrived all the staff started running around looking after us. The view over the river was simply beautiful and our shack... More

A beautiful, back to basic, place with wonderful people, who made our stay very special: Dung, Tuan, Phong, Hanh and Hai, thank you so much. The excursions were great: to the floating market with Tuan, a bike tour to special places with Dzung as our enthousiastic guide, and a boat trip with Phong. The ladies who made delicious meals: Hanh... More

Thank you so much Trung, Dzung, Pom and the amazing cooks at the Nguyen Shack. This was by far our favourite place in Vietnam. The boat trip to the floating and land markets and the bicycle tour of the local villages was an absolute highlight. We learnt so much and felt so welcome everywhere we went especially by the generosity... More

This place is great, but not for everyone. If you want to experience the mekong for a night or two stay here. Do the floating and bike tour. Owner is super nicer and helpful, very friendly place. Rooms are simply but perfect, it's HOT in the delta with humidity to match, buts it's all good. The mekong is a slice... More

We stayed here 3 nights and loved it! It was one of our favorite places to stay in Vietnam. It's a unique spot that really captures life in the Mekong Delta. The Shack is pretty rustic, so if you're looking for sterile luxury, this isn't it. But it's perfect for relaxed travelers looking to see the countryside and still have... More

So after staying at Nguyen Shack Ninh Binh we thought it would be rude not to join them once more at Can Tho when we arrived in the south. Again we were warmly greeted with a refreshing welcoming drink and a familiar face as Dung (hostess) had also arrived here a few days earlier. We were given chance to settle... More
