Beautifully renovated, this substantial family beach house is clean, modern and comfortable.

The home spreads across 2 levels with a large deck surrounding the front and side of the house providing sensational ocean and bay views. Tree’s surrounding the property provide privacy and attract local native birds.
Situated close to the waterfront, a sandy peaceful beach is only two minutes walk away. During the summer months a pontoon is installed in the bay - great fun to swim out to and dive off.

Tapeka is a fantastic location. It’s a secluded bay tucked away from hustle and bustle but also only a few mins drive from Russell’s cafes, restaurants, shops and historical buildings.

Many of the excursions available in the area depart from Russell Wharf including swimming with dolphins, sailing cruises, fishing charters and speed boat trips to the Hole in the Rock. A passenger ferry also operates regularly from Russell to Paihia.

The White House works well for families and groups, with a variety of different spaces and privacy for everyone. The house is clean and comfortable, and very well equipped with enough room for everyone.
The top floor has fabulous panoramic views, a sunroom, bedroom and full bathroom.

The middle floor is the heart of the house and contains a large living area that opens out onto surrounding balconies with ocean views. The huge open plan kitchen and dining area have concertina windows, providing a servery to a separate private balcony with an outdoor meals area.

The bottom floor has a full time tenant.

 Beautiful big property. Lovely location. 

 Wonderful spot. House has everything a family needs to enjoy a beak away in the Bay of Islands. 

 Beautiful light airy property in a wonderful location (just 4 min drive from Russell) with a stunning view over what we named 'our magic beach'. All our needs covered including bbq, fully equipped kitchen and lovely neighbours who gave us a lettuce from their garden one evening, Thank you and fantastic spot, Helen Sinclair 

 Great property, good size with nice sea views, well equipped kitchen and a good layout. Just over the hill from the Russell township so only a quick drive to everything we needed. Very nice.
