  • Fabulous location near the boat ramp on the Strand

    Fabulous location near the boat ramp on the Strand. Walking distance to everything. A classic old style beach house. My family loved using the kayaks. Only downside was the wifi seemed to be failing when we were there.

  • We absolutely loved it

    We absolutely loved it. Perfect location and a lovely house that perfectly fitted our group, breakfast on the deck (the bakery just within walking distance), so close to everything. We had a wonderful stay. The only scar on our trip was the rip off at the Waitangi Treaty house, just so expensive. We don't need our tourists to be treated like that. We felt so lucky to come home to our beautiful boathouse in the evening. Thank you for a wonderful few days.

  • Location is fantastic

    Location is fantastic. A short stroll to the Duke for drinks and food, a wee walk to the lovely Russell village. A great deck for watching the sun rise and fall and all the activity in between. Highly recommend a stay here. Comfortably furnished - great beds. Loved it.

    Everything was great with this house, right on the waterfront. Very clean and has all the amenities one could ask for. Nice outlook. Lovely time we had.
