Guest Comments

” Thank you Susan for a great weekend in “THE SHED’!
We are 5 couples with little ones and found the house so well suited to us. It is beautifully presented with everything you need (even kids toys, bath toys & a child step for the toilet!!) and enough bedrooms and space to spread out and not feel on top of one another.
Great house, warm and cosy, ideally situated just out of Ohakune – private & quiet with a mint view of the mountain! Everything we were looking for.
Along with your friendly service it was a brilliant long weekend.
We will definitely recommend it to others and hope to come back “

We were so relaxed at The Shed … there were three families and in our group, it has every thing you need for a great base which has loads of room for everyone.

Our kids LOVED The Shed as soon as they arrived they just ran upstairs to play and only came back down for food.

Every time I’ve stayed at The Shed it been so warm with the two fires we just walked around in T shirts while it was snowing outside !!

The beds were really comfortable and had “hotel” type sheets and the kind of bed linen I wish I had at home !

The Flat screen is awesome we snowboarded all day and watched rugby all night sweet !!
