  • 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).

    Beautiful, peaceful location with stunning seafront views. Charming character property with all the amenities you could need. Very helpful and friendly caretaker, John. Great to have free use of kayaks to explore the beautiful shores. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

    Very nice, well equiped and clean property. 2 bedrooms, ideal for a family of four which was our case (travelling with 2 small kids). Our two small boys (3 and 5) enjoyed the place very much. Car ferry to Russel just 200m but very quiet place (cars went other way from the ferry, so no traffic at all on the road where the house was situated).

    Good mix of the old with all the mod cons. Well appointed flat, quiet and fabulous view.

    Exceeded our expectations. Plenty of room for 4-adults. Charming historic home with comfortable period furnishings and very modern bathroom. Excellent housekeeping. Spectacular view of the harbour from the front windows and the porch. Very quiet street. John was very helpful and provided us with great sightseeing tips in the area. No problems with the WiFi.
