“Best minibreak destination”
Reviewed 24 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Love this place. A short drive from Wanaka to your own slice of paradise. Real Kiwi bach, right next to the beach where you can chill out by the fire or laze around on the lawn in between swims. Don't forget to try the fire-bath and soak under the stars.

“Peace aand Tranquility”
Reviewed 21 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed 4 nights at the Black Shack. There had been unseasonal snow fall just prior to our arrival, so the mountains and lake looked just spectacular. The Shack is very clean and comfortable , with a well equipped kitchen & cosy fire - everything that we needed. We woke up each morning to snow capped mountains, water lapping the lakeshore, peace and quiet. We would definitely return. Fully recommended.

“peaceful place to relax, great views”
Reviewed 28 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

Black Shack in Hawea is peaceful place to relax, right on the lake,
with great views on Lake Hawea.
Well kept and fully equipped kitchen, you can do your own cooking but check your supplies,
only one grocery shop in Hawea.

We booked on very short term notice, and Gordon was very helpful to make it work.
