The Blackhouse

Rental Home -
3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 9
Gisborne, Gisborne Region, North Island
The blackhouse is a unique, self contained luxury lodge on a farm overlooking the renown Wainui surf beach. It can sleep 3 couples or up to 9 people(check the sleeping accommodations on the web site). It has 3 charming double bedrooms, one with 4 bunks as well. A large open-spaced living area with a magnificent central fireplace creates a very special ambience. A beautiful gourmet kitchen for you own catering or if you prefer, we can organise a chef to cook you that special dinner. The Blackhouse has fabulous 180 degree sea views of the Pacific Ocean and also lovely rural views over a tranquil valley and hills.
