We booked at the shed because it seemed like it was out of the ordinary. Comfort levels were standard, but the hosts were exceptional (Rusty) The setup is best suited to those who interact with nature and people. Good bed and lovely shower. Although adjacent to a busy road, the noise disappears overnight.

We stayed at The Shed Guesthouse for 4 nights recently while exploring Wanaka and attending a mates wedding. It was perfect. Jo, Rusty and their little helper (son) Lachy were super warm, friendly & helpful hosts. The location is stunning, looking out to various mountains. It’s a close bike or drive to town. Not far to walk to town either (we saved the walking for on the trails though). The rooms are warm, modern, comfortable and clean. The kitchen and lounge space was awesome, everything needed to make a meal and with modern and clean equipment. There’s board games, comfy couches to relax on, maps and plenty of suggestions for short, half day or full day adventures listed on the board. Thanks for having us, Jo and Rusty. Holly and Links
