We really enjoyed the solitude and great views of the lake for our short stay. Wanaka is only a short drive for all required amenities but this property is perfect for those seeking a peace and quiet with superb lake views and plenty of privacy. We thoroughly recommend the Black Shack for a restful retreat. The property is compact but has all the essentials and is a genuine Kiwi bach.

This place is a true gem - comfortable/cozy, picturesque, a wonderful, relaxing oasys. Gordon was easy to communicate with, and gaining access was effortless. Would definitely recommend this lovely property if you're looking for some quiet time away with family/loved ones.

We had a wonderful two nights at the Black Shack. We used the sleep out and the main house, which was perfect for a group of four adults. The Black Shack was exactly as described and had everything we needed for a wonderful stay. Despite a mixed bag of weather, we enjoyed every minute and the amazing changing views of Lake Hawea. There is so much to do right on the doorstep and we especially loved being able to bring our dog, who also had a wonderful time. Will definitely be back and highly recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful holiday. Thanks!

Highly recommend The Black Shack, with beautiful lake-shore views of Lake Hawea. Cosy and snug, we watched rain and wind ruffle the lake as the fire blazed. Thanks Gordon, the cottage has everything. Perfectly positioned, away from the thronging crowds of Queenstown and Wanaka, but only 15 mins drive from Wanaka. We would love to come back.

We are fascinated by the perfect location of this bach, a unique holiday home directly situated on the shore of Lake Hawea. Whenever we find time we try to recharge our batteries in the “Black Shack” and its absolute breathtaking surroundings.
