Stunning views across the country and out to Ocean

 We stayed at this house with family friends for 8 days. The view is amazing, the pictures just don't do it justice. The place isn't perfect but close to it. Just a few things not finished like painting. Nothing that impacted on the use of the house. Amazing kitchen, 2fridges and plenty of room for a few people to cook at once. No tv which we loved...the kids used the hill with the supplied boogies board as a slide. Loved the Adhoc things that we left in the home for us to enjoy, eg binoculars

The Hidden Tui beach bach

 Old, but tidy and comfortable bach. We stayed in a tent on the grounds with all the mod cons in close proximity; glamping at it's best! Beautiful views from the bach. Short track to the beach; appreciated the efforts to make the track as safe as possible. A bit steep and slippery for young children and when carrying lots of gear. Appreciated the use of the row boat and that life jackets for old and young were provided. Great swimming beaches close by. Worth driving to Rangiputa and Golden Bay. 

The Little Cottage...Short walk to beach

 Lovely little Cottage in a fantastic location. Can't wait to go back!! 

The Little Cottage...Short walk to beach

 Remote, private, tranquil and perfectly located to beach and local iconic spots of NZ. Only short drive to town for supplies if needed.

Walking distance to beach, shops, restaurants

 Fantastic location only minutes from the town and beach. Beautiful views from the living area and deck. Plenty of space in the house and very relaxing. 

Heart of Russell, key to the Bay of Islands.

 Plenty of room, well layed out house, very nice setting.
