Apartment | Opua | #11414
This historic (B rating) homestead has been in the family since it was moved to its current site in 1885. It was run as an accommodation house by my great grandmother Jane Morris, then after her by her daughter-in-law (my grandmother) Kathleen Morris. This apartment is upstairs in the building and has just had a major renovation with new floors, ceilings and walls. In fact the whole apartment is completely new! Feel as though you have stepped back in time as it is beautifully and comfortably decorated in traditional style. It certainly has the WOW factor. Nice and cool in the summer, and cosy and warm in the winter. It is located right on the beach front at Opua. Wake up to the sound of sea gulls and stunning views over the Bay. Opua is very quiet, but there is always something happening. Sit on the verandah and watch the activity. Only 100 metres to the car ferry and general store, another 100 metres to the marina and café. By road, it is only 5 kilometres to Paihia or Russell. A fantastic walk between Opua and Paihia following the coastal walkway, with other lovely walks only a short distance away. It is also a great starting point for the Opua to Horeke bike trail. Simply the best place for a relaxing, rejuvenating holiday and a perfect location from which to explore the stunning Bay of Islands and the Far North. Please note there is another apartment downstairs that sleeps 4 people. Please see the separate listing.

Location to die for. Sat on the veranda and watched the ferry go back and forward. Very tranquil view. The apartment was amazing- quality furnishings and everything you could ask for. Even although we had three days wet weather and one fine we thoroughly enjoyed the stay because of the great accommodation.Outstanding.
We really did not want to leave this stunning property and perfect location (we even extended our stay!) We will most certainly be returning. Landlord (Delwyn) was superb and hosts both accommodating and friendly. A perfect place to unwind & relax. Don’t think about booking anywhere else!
