  • Lovely Opua in beautiful Bay of Islands
  • Stunning views
  • Historic homestead

This is lovely, comfortable, beachfront accommodation, fully furnished, and traditionally redecorated in sympathy with its age. Feel as though you have stepped back in time. It is nice and cool in the summer, and cosy and warm in the winter. The flat is located right on the beachfront 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 and something to watch, whether it is the car ferry chugging back and forward across the bay, or yachts and motorboats making their way in and out of the harbour. Sometimes you can be lucky enough to see dolphins or orca. The homestead is only 100 metres to the car ferry and general store and another 100 metres to the marina and café. By road, it is 5 kilometres to Paihia or Russell. It is right at the beginning of the coastal walkway from Opua to Paihia. Other lovely walks are only a short distance away. There is also a cycleway from Opua to Taumarere Station. It is simply the best place for a relaxing, rejuvenating holiday or weekend and a perfect location from which to explore the stunning Bay of islands and the Far North. Please note - there is another apartment upstairs in the building that sleeps 6 people. Please see the separate listing.

Special conditions: As it is a historic building there is no smoking anywhere on the property, inside or out. There is also a ban on any naked flame (i.e. lighted candles).

  • We just loved Bay View #2! Location, location, location

    We just loved Bay View #2! Location, location, couldn't have been better. Right on the water, the view was breathtaking. Only a short walk from the General Store, restaurants, ferry landing, marina. The apartment was far more spacious than we had anticipated and beautifully furnished with antiques and old family photos. It was clean, the bed was so comfortable (and new!), the linens were of good quality. The unit was warm...I could have lingered on for days. We shall return!
