The blackhouse is situated at beautiful Wainui Beach – a charming coastal community just 6 kilometres from central Gisborne.
Located just off the iconic State Highway 35 – one of the most scenic coastal road journeys in Aotearoa, this is the perfect destination for an East Coast vacation.
Gisborne is the main city of the Eastland Region (pop 45,000), a vast triangle on the North Island’s eastern seaboard which includes the Eastern Bay of Plenty, the East Cape, Gisborne, Mahia Peninsula, Lake Waikaremoana, and Te Urewera National Park.
Gisborne’s warm, sunny climate means it often boasts the highest annual sunshine hours in the country – its fertile lands providing a delicious bounty for food producers and winemakers, with Gisborne also reputed as the Chardonnay capital of New Zealand.
The ultimate beach holiday destination you can enjoy all-year round, flights to Gisborne are only 50 minutes away from Auckland and Wellington. You can also arrive at the blackhouse by helicopter with a landing area onsite.
