Get great experience there.

Local life
It was very easy to have experience of local native life and compare with that it was really comfortable. I loved that place. If you want to know Vietnamese culture, you must stay here.
Michael J. Couples Australia, September 23, 2014
Great location but a bit over priced.

Location on the canal was great. Food great. Staff very friendly.
Enjoyed our stay at the shack and would stay longer if it was cheaper. Enjoyed the floating market and the bike tour. Could have done without sunset tour. Staff very helpful. Enjoyed our short stay there.

Amazing Place

Great riverside location, really friendly staff, fantastic tours
We stayed in Nguyen for one night and went on the sunset tour and the morning floating market tour. Both tours and and the homestay were real fun. Highly recommanded.

An eye opening experience

The staff, location and food
Don't go to this hotel expecting luxury....go to this place expecting an experience. The rooms are charming, the setting amazing and the staff are true friends. Expect an excellent service and be open to getting to know people. For us this was an amazing experience which we will truly cherish. The tours offered; the floating market and land market, bicycle ride and boat ride are all worthwhile. Also, a walk around the place as suggested by Eloi, gives you a glimpse of the Vietnam which is not published in guides but is raw and beautiful. This place is run by a winning team, Eloi, Kim, Phong and the Ladies who really and truly took care of us....and how can I forget Charlie, Bacon and Toto. I wish anyone who makes the wise decision to book this hotel, an experience as nice as ours

Nice homestay in the heart of the Mekong-delta

the location outside the city, the nice staff and the great tours they offer
we had two great days in the nature of Mekong-delta. very quit and relaxing with a bike-tour and a boat-trip to the swimming market.

Relaxing stay surrounded by nature

It is all about the authentic country setting, the great service and the friendly, attentive staff
Our stay at the Nguyen Shack was the most memorable of our two-week trip to Vietnam. If you are looking for a home stay along the Mekong River where traditional Vietnamese values still abound, then I highly recommend staying at the Nguyen Shack near Can Tho. The bungalows are comfortable, and offer a breath-taking view of the countryside along the Mekong River. The friendly, attentive staff took care of all our needs, including taxi and bus reservations for our next Vietnamese destination. One could not ask for better hosts during our stay. Eloi and Kim went out of their way to offer us great service, great meals, and great advice and information about local customs and Vietnam in general. We had a great time and hope to see them both again in a not-too-distant future. There are various excursions available when staying at the Nguyen Shack, and we recommend them all.

Cultural, eye opening, nature.

Friendly staff, close to nature, live animals.
extraordinary experience. Is a very eye opening trip to us. It is located to the heart of the Mekong, and provided with a lot of tours that anyone should join and experience themselves.
Chia-Ling C. Couples Belgium, January 3, 2014
best homestay ever

nice staffs, nice peolple, good food
it was a great place to stay, me and my husband are both very happy that we found this place, it's a very simple, quiet place with super friendly staffs. During the stay, we got to be close to other travelers and families, all of them are super friendly, cannot have this kind of feeling by staying in a hotel! They have many kinds of choices for food, super yummy as well. right next to the river with beautiful gardens..... only good things about this home stay!! Love this place!
Pete H. Couples United Kingdom, December 12, 2013
absolutely fantastic place

embedded in nature, a truly lovely experience, great staff
We enjoyed our stay here thoroughly. It is a fantastic place with lovely staff and full of character. There is interaction with the guests which can be fun. The place is amazing with a riverside setting and rooms that are open to the elements. We had a mid night display of fire flies which was quite something.
