Aotea Harbour bach, stunning views of the harbour

 Aotea harbour is a hidden GEM! The laid back atmosphere, the closeness of the beach and the excellent layout of the Bach make for a fantastic getaway with the kids. Go down the stairs of the sea wall and right 100m then spend a lazy day under the pohutakawas watching the tide. This was heaven! Fab for the whole family. Couldn't recommend more highly. 

Beautifully Appointed Swiss Chalet

 Our accommodation was perfect. It was very clean and tidy, handy to town & had comfy beds:-)!!

Heart of Russell, key to the Bay of Islands.

 Lots of space, very clean, well equipped, owner of house nearby but not overcrowding us, there to help if asked for. Great to take kids and dogs

2014 Gold Piwa Best Hospitality: Wyuna Magic

 beautiful location-stunning views. Loved the garden. Comfortable, thoughtfully appointed bach- everything you need for a relaxing break. 

Amazing sea views, contemporary architectural home

 This property was the perfect location to end our holidays. We loved the open plan which opened out onto the huge deck, some great art pieces and furniture which gives the house a very cool vibe. A great location if you're looking to get away from the city and escape to a secluded spot with nothing but land and seas around you. Bonus is that it's only over an hours drive to get to. Looking forward to coming back!
