Host Information

Nguyen Shack – Ninh Binh is a Ecotourism Glamping spot located in the heart of the attractions in Ninh Binh. The bungalows are situated in the middle of a valley surrounded by the multiform limestone pitons. Our Ninh Binh accommodation offers guests an amazing mountain valley view with a lake at the front of the bungalows. The guesthouse is built from nature materials such as bamboo and leaves, making guests feel closer to nature. Offering a true sense of Vietnam, a natural private terrace allows guests to feel relax in a comfortable lounge chair or hammock with a good book and a calming cup of tea. Is the best place to disconnect from the busy world where we living and enjoy the serenity of Vietnam countryside. You should plan to stay a minimum of 2 nights when you come to visit us if you want to have time to see the touristic attraction and to relax at the Shack enjoying our amazing landscape.
Nguyen Shack is a joint venture between Theu (Vietnamese) and Maxime (Canadian). They have met each other in Vietnam at the time that Maxime was traveling for a world trip and decided to stop is adventure in Vietnam. It was a dream that both of them had to open a guesthouse. Theu worked all of her life for big hotels administrators around Vietnam and planned to open her own accommodation. Maxime had planned to work hard in the video business before starting a guesthouse in countryside of Quebec 10 or 15 years later. Finally it's happen faster than planned and in a country very far from home. It was the perfect match to start a great adventure with their new business. Nguyen Shack - Ninh Binh is the second guesthouse that they have open in Vietnam. The first one is in the Mekong Delta near Can Tho City. After one year and a half of operation in this homestay Theu and Maxime were ready to grow. Instead of building more bungalow in Can Tho, they decide to keep it small and to open a new one in Ninh Binh. So, the guesthouse will not become a resort but remain a quiet place with small team to have familial feeling.
It is an ideal spot to easily access the main thing to do by bicycle such as Trang An, Tam Coc – Bich Dong, Hoa Lu (Ancient Capital), Bai Dinh and the town. Our bicycles are provide for free for guests’ satisfaction. We also organize some unique non-touristic tour to discover the local life of the villager next to our place. With our bike tour you will learn how the farmer grow the rice, see a local textile factory, learn how to do homemade tofu, how to make concrete pottery and brick, visit a on thousand years old pagoda and meet the children at the primary school of the village. A great way to know more about Vietnam
