  • The real asset with this property is the location on the beach...

    The real asset with this property is the location on the beach - with Russel itself a medium walk or short drive away. Russel is quaint little holiday town on the water with all basic needs including restaurants ,couple of small food marts which stock all the needs and other general stores including medical centre and pharmacy

    Superb location, it was such a treat holidaying only a stone's throw from the beach. Great house, good set-up, would definitely stay here again.

  • Beautiful bach in a wonderful part of the country

    Beautiful bach in a wonderful part of the country. Suitable for large groups & families with plenty of kayaks, a dinky and jackets, plus outdoor toys and tramp for the kids. The bach is situated for you just to sit and relax and enjoy the lovely views and is a stones throw from a great beach. Everything has been thought of here and I'm sure you will have a very relaxing and enjoyable stay.
