This beautiful home will make your stay in the Bay of Islands something to remember.

As you walk through the front entrance, you are immediately struck by the high wooden ceilings and expansive views of the bay.

In this house you often find you have stopped what you were doing and are again staring out at the beautiful bay and across to Russell. You are close enough to the waterfront to see what is going on at the beach, yet far enough back to feel secluded.

The main room is an open plan kitchen, dining and lounge. The high counter provides a social hub between the kitchen and lounge, while the dining area is slightly removed. The native timber ceilings and floors and the open space create a comfortable, "at ease" feeling.

The wood burner is located centrally so that in winter, although it feels spacious the whole house is cosy and warm, while in summer the many doors can be opened to let in the cool sea breeze to escape the midday heat.

There is a separate TV room through double doors with a fold out couch that can become a fourth bedroom if you have a larger group. It can be closed away to become a quiet retreat or opened up to be an annex off the main room.

The master suite is upstairs. It has a queen sized bed and a walk through wardrobe leading to an en-suite.

Downstairs are two more bedrooms and a second bathroom.

It really is a short walk down to the waterfront restaurants, cafes and bars. The wharf and town centre are also only a 10 minute stroll along the beach past several historic sites, including the Stone Church, St Paul's.

Special conditions: Please note that the property is up a steep drive. There is parking for 2 cars however limited turning around space.

  • It's a wonderful house laid out well with a great view

    It's a wonderful house laid out well with a great view. The only downside was the driveway which is very steep and people with any walking difficulty would have problems getting up or down. And due to the wet day we arrived, we couldn't get our trailer up the driveway. Other than that, it's a great location to restaurants, the beach, and the centre of town!

  • Fantastic view, great location for walking in to Paihia

    Fantastic view, great location for walking in to Paihia. Very steep driveway. Interior getting a bit tired. Great in good weather, but wet days the house is musty and damp. No tumble drier. Mattresses soft.
