Description

  • Gorgeous sunny lakeside cottage nestled amongst native trees
  • World class mountain and lake views
  • Close to ski fields, golf course, Hawea river, mountain bike tracks, fishing and walks

It doesn’t get more idyllic than this. With only a 2 mins drive from Lake Hawea village or 15mins drive to Wanaka township – you can enjoy easy access to shops and your daily flat white but then quickly be back in paradise relaxing and enjoying nature.

It's also a magical venue for your office Christmas party, team bonding session, boutique wedding or niche event.

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 and the water of Lake Hawea lapping the shore just below the cottage. 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. It's easy to get your boat in at the marina at Hawea township or with a 4WD directly outside the cottage.

Come nightfall, you can crank up the BBQ and braziers then have a soak in the firebath beneath the Southern stars.

  • Timeless little bach in a perfect location

    Timeless little bach in a perfect location. Property is perfect for couple, small family or group of friends. Door open up onto a lawn and a view of the lake. Property is well decorated, good shower, well stocked kitchen and a wood fire which heats the place very quickly. The location is fantastic. The beach is 30 seconds walk. I spent a week here writing and couldn't have found anywhere better.

  • We enjoyed a wonderful stay at the bach

    We enjoyed a wonderful stay at the bach. Sunlight floods into the bach and an open fire provided a cosy and warm environment during the cooler evenings. Our 2 year-old son loved the bach, its garden and the nearby lake shore.

  • We loved our stay at the Black Shack

    We loved our stay at the Black Shack. We booked this property as it was so close to Lake Hawea township without being on top of everyone else, as we had a mountain bike race there....however we got so much more than just somewhere to sleep. The cottage was so cosy and the scenery was amazing, waking up every day to a perfect blue sky and glistening lake....we were so sad to leave.

  • The property had all the conveniences of commercial accomodation without the sterility

    The property had all the conveniences of commercial accomodation without the sterility. There was a real sense of this place being a loved and cherised family bach. A wonderful spot to recharge the batteries.
