  • Perfect location in heart of Russell, easy walk to everything you need...

    Perfect location in heart of Russell, easy walk to everything you need and short drive to the beach. Lovely character bach. We arrived just after a huge storm and everything was well in order but just a minor thing due to the weather there were a lot of smashed pears on the footpath we had to clear to get our luggage in. Otherwise all great!

  • Great place and excellent location

    Great place and excellent location. Unfortunately it rained for most of the week we were there so it was great to have a big tv with Sky television. The modern kitchen and appliances were also great. The place is child friendly and my two little ones (2 years old) enjoyed running up the hilly back garden. The bird life was fantastic, especially seeing a Weka! It was a very comfortable stay, almost like staying at families - which to our surprise, it turned out we were related :)

  • Very good proximity to the township

    Very good proximity to the township. If you’re a bit sensitive to noise, it is on the road into town but it wasn’t an issue for us. The home is quaintly furnished and has a lovely vibe about it.

    We absolutely loved our stay, the bach was gorgeous, quaint and well appointed. The location is ideal - within close walking distance to the main area of Russell. We loved the fruit trees in the garden and watching the birds in the feeders. Will definitely be back and highly recommend this bach - can't think of a better place to stay in Russell.
