Holiday Rental House
A hidden haven at the edge of Lake Hawea, Wanaka, New Zealand. Stay a night, a week or longer and enjoy the ultimate retreat. The Black Shack is a gorgeous sunny lakeside cottage nestled amongst native trees, with world class mountain and lake views. It doesn’t get more idyllic than this. With only a 2 mins drive from Lake Hawea township or 15mins drive to Wanaka township – you get to enjoy easy access to shops and your daily flat white but then quickly be back in paradise relaxing and enjoying nature. This is a unique slice of paradise. There are not many cottages available to rent in such an idyllic spot. You can hear the birds every morning, hear the water of Lake Hawea lapping near the cottage. You truly feel renewed and invigorated after a stay here. Surrounded by native trees, nest...A hidden haven at the edge of Lake Hawea, Wanaka, New Zealand.

You truly feel renewed and invigorated after a stay here. Surrounded by native trees, nestled in a corner nook of the lake, John’s Creek has its own microclimate. There is open space for kids and adults to run around and bike. Its easy to get your boat in at the marina at Hawea township or with a 4WD directly outside the cottage.More
