Villa Motorua is the largest unit at Te Pa Helios (Fortress of the sun) and is beautifully elevated on a sun drenched site in the seaside village of Tapeka, just a few minutes drive from the gorgeous village of Russell.

The panoramic and close up sea views are just breath taking and forever changing with the weather and tide. The rocky bay below and the sandy beach to the south west are often visited by Dolphins and Orcas, both are just a short stroll from the villas.

This beautifully appointed roomy two bedroom, two bathroom Mediterranean style villa is fully equipped with a large kitchen, with the master suite opening out on to a covered Lanai – the perfect place to enjoy your breakfast or laze away the afternoon on the day bed.

The open plan dining and living area has a wood burner for cosy winter nights and there is a large courtyard to enjoy summer evenings and alfresco dining.

    The villa is awesome and the price is very good for such a view and location. I would give 5 stars if the kitchen bench was open so we could walk directly from the diner table to the kitchen instead of walking around through the lounge. Overall we had a great stay in this house.

    Absolutely loved everything about it - we wanted a quite weekend away surround ed by nature and we got it. Being foodies we loved the amenities in the kitchen and enjoyed sourcing local produce to cook in the evenings.
