Harbour Views, only 30 seconds to the beach!

 We will be back!! Great location with wicked views and that deck is massive! 

Charming cottage on the coast

 Wonderful place! Very private with beautiful bush walks throughout the property and a quick drive or walk to the beach for a surf. Could hear the kiwis calling at dusk and spent time with the beautiful eel down in the water hole. Will definitely come again, thanks for the hospitality. 

Dolphin View  Russell Bay of Islands

 Great little bach, ideal for a family with 1-2 kids. Had everything we needed, nice view from the deck, spa was awesome - even though weather was hot we still had great use of spa. Only a few minutes walk to beach and 5-10 min walk to shops. Comfy beds and pillows and lovely bush outlook from bedrooms. 

Idyllic beach front accommodation

 The most magic family holiday. Relaxing, charming, peaceful, beautiful, yet close to everything. Thank you so much for allowing us to borrow it for a few days. Would love to come back. 

Charming cottage on the coast

 Great Bach, had everything we needed and great location, so near to fabulous beaches. The setting of the Bach is gorgeous, so peaceful and private and we loved being able to stroll around the grounds. Jeff and Sue were lovely to deal with and made our stay very enjoyable. Would definitely love to come again. 

Sunny Spacious Seaview Stunner
