Welcome to Takapuke, a hidden treasure of peace, privacy and amazing ambiance in Russell, Bay of Islands, NZ

This unique and iconic beach front house is located on the Russell waterfront and is now available for guests to experience and enjoy.

When you pass through its private century gate from The Strand, (southern end) Russell you enter into a place of unique magic. Your pathway leads you to your newly appointed beach house located in Tahapuke Bay.

Decorated with contemporary decor and furnishings your accommodation setting opens out onto a portrait of sea views, with your own private beach. This location allows you to relax in complete privacy promoting a balance between luxury and nature.

A 5 acre backdrop of native bush cascades down to the beach and two tracks lead upwards from the House arriving at two peaceful Maori Pa sites elevated at each end of this property.

An amazing panorama of sea life and movement fills your viewing canvas extending across to Paihia and Waitangi.

Boasting total privacy with no neighbours in sight, a gentle 5 minute walk from the lodge allows guests easy access to Russell’s wharf, waterfront, restaurants and shops.

A chef is available on request.

A mooring is also available.

All long weekends are charged at the peak rate.

    Fantastic place! We were very happy with the house, the location, and the town. We decided to book a second trip almost immediately after stepping in.

    This is certainly one of the best equipped houses we have ever stayed at. That is saying a lot considering we stay at about 8 different rental villas worldwide every year. It's hard to imagine a more private location so close to the town. You can literally walk to the Russell wharf in 5 minutes.
