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.

  • Nice and roomy

    Nice and roomy. Great facilities. Even a log burner all set up. The driveway not an issue as good exercise and plenty of vehicle room. Handy to town which is great. The only negative for us was a barking dog outside the upstairs bedroom which woke us up at 6am each morning.

  • Super place to stay

    Super place to stay. Clean, spacious and well equipped for our every need. Short stroll to the town, beaches & coffee shops. Wonderful sea views. Would definitely stay here again.

  • This property is great

    This property is great. Brilliant view, walking distance to town, more than enough space to fit all the people staying, fully functioning kitchen, comfy beds, would definitely recommenced staying here. Point to note is that yes, the driveway is very steep, but there is enough space for 2 cars to park comfortably with enough room to turn around (you could put 3 cars up there but there wouldn't be room to turn around).

    The property is very spacious and had everything we needed for our 4 night stay. The views from the property are stunning and it's only a short walk to the beach, restaurants and shops

  • Property was in a great location

    Property was in a great location. Clean and tidy. It did smell very musty though. Not sure if this was due to it being closed up for a period of time, or maybe a leak?? That was the only downside.
