Tiroroa (meaning “Extensive View”) is the Bay of Islands holiday home that you have been dreaming of, finished to a very high standard and offering fantastic views of the Bay and surrounding native bush. The breathtaking view and surroundings never cease to amaze as you gaze upon the islands of Urupukapuka, Motarua and Poroporo seemingly floating on the horizon. This stunning landscape makes it one of the absolute must see destinations in New Zealand and is visited by people from all over the globe. Keen sailors will appreciate that Dicks Bay and nearby Jacks Bay are popular and peaceful anchorages on the eastern side of the Bay of Islands. With a sub-tropical climate, visitors to this region enjoy beach and water activities, go exploring the many nature walks, swim with dolphins, sail, surf or just explore the 144 different islands in the bay. The historic township of Russell is the first capital of New Zealand and retains its European charm, drawing residents from all over the world forming a vibrant and friendly community with pop up weekend markets. There is a wide range of dining options from cafes to award winning restaurants showcasing the best of NZ cuisine and produce.

The heart of this recently built home is the huge designer kitchen with high quality appliances and stonework surfaces. Just behind a feature wall the separate lounge area has an open fireplace for the ambience rather than necessity given the eco-efficiency of the build. With a large master suite at one end and two generous double bedrooms at the far end, privacy is guaranteed with all rooms enjoying access to the large covered deck, which has outdoor seating, dining and a BBQ to enjoy the long Northland evenings. The house is well equipped with all the homewares for a perfect self catering holiday, creating memories of a fabulous romantic getaway or a delightful family holiday.

  • This home is the Shangri-La of homes

    This home is the Shangri-La of homes. Beautifully appointed, situated among the trees overlooking the bay. We would love to come back at the first opportunity. We have stayed in homes/bachs all over the world and this was by far one of the best, period.

  • This property was everything we had hoped for and a lot more

    This property was everything we had hoped for and a lot more. Fantastic location on high ground with panoramic views over the bay, very secluded, beautifully appointed with very comfy beds and every accessory you might need..the accommodation was well designed with the master at one end of the house and two guest bedrooms at the other end and great outdoor space. It is about 20 mins from Russell along a rather windy road and vehicular access to the house is very steep which might not suit all.
