It's the end of an era.

The Black House is no more..... Has now been sold and new owners are gutting out the interior and turning into a private residence. Is unavailable to the public to rent / hire out.

We do have another holiday house available to rent on an awesome beachfront site. If you previously stayed and enjoyed the Black House you will enjoy this one too.

Is on Bookabach, called White House on the Beach, ID # 27388.

Thank you to all the people that have stayed at the Black House and created fond memories.

    A beautiful house in a stunning location, with picture-perfect views of the lake and surrounding area. The house is spacious. We enjoyed relaxing by the roaring fire, and cooking and eating dinner together at the large dining room table. The hot tub was fantastic and very relaxing. We also enjoyed doing the 5.5km return walk on the boardwalk around Lake Okareka, with the amazing bird life and views. Close to the airport and town too, and mountain biking in the redwood forest.

    Don't think you could find a better location for a holiday home by a lake. The facilities are superb and the position breathtaking. Fabulous for a get away winter or summer.
