    The cottage is in the best location, right next to the water's edge within easy walking distance of Russell Wharf (around 10 mins at a leisurely walking pace). We loved watching the tide come and go through the large picture window in the lounge area. The cottage is well equipped for all your needs. Will definitely recommend to family & friends wishing to stay in the Bay of Islands.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed the Boatshed

    We thoroughly enjoyed the Boatshed. It's ideally placed for a stay in Russell, just a short and easy walk to shops and restaurants. Perfect accommodation for two with great views.
