Friendly owners. Clean and comfortable. Good location, close to Rangiora. Nobody else around, so it was quite and peaceful. Beautiful clear sky’s at night time, so could see all the stars.
My husband and I spent a few nights at The Shack. It was everything that we expected and were delighted with the simplicity of the place. The bed was comfortable and everything worked like clockwork. My horse was in the paddock next door and I enjoyed riding down by the river. Corina and Lee are wonderful hosts and nothing was ever a problem. Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable, looking forward to coming back at some stage. Kathie
