Description

  • 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).

    This house is really lovely, it has the charm of a heritage place and is confortable at the same time. It is very spatious and well equiped. The view is great and the location is extremely convenient to take the ferry to Russel. Opua is a nice little harbour. The walk from/to Pahaia is very nice too.

  • A fabulous location overlooking the picturesque bay

    A fabulous location overlooking the picturesque bay. The property has been sympathetically and lovingly restored in keeping with the era of 1885, as are the fixtures and fittings. It is very well equipped. There is plenty to see and do i the area. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • Thank you for sharing your magic corner of the world

    Thank you for sharing your magic corner of the world. We loved staying in the beautifully restored Historic house. It is a fab location and well set up for our needs. You can not get a better view, right across the road from the water and moorings. Just along from the Russel Ferry and 5 minutes to Paihia. Great area for walking or cycling too. Local store/bakery handy for grocery items and freshly made hot bread etc, coffee and more. Internet access and Sky tv was also. We will be back.
