Welcome to Cloud 8, so named because we are perched high above Russell with the most amazing views across the bay towards Paihia and Waitangi.

The house is a generous, open plan, up to date place to relax and recharge with private areas as well if you seek solitude. It is fully equipped for the discerning while Ideal if you seek to chill out

Russell is a very special town steeped in the history and romance of a past era. It is also the base for numerous activities both on land and water and in the evening stroll down to the town to our many restaurants or even just fish and chips on the deck

Or you can just relax and enjoy a barbecue back on the sundeck – the evenings are long and mild and the sunsets are beautiful. You may even catch a glimpse of dolphins cruising around the wharf. There is always something happening on the water. There are also many beautiful walks around Russell and two beaches for swimming, within short walking distance, one a white sandy surf beach.

Russell is famous for its water activities such as sailing, cruising out to the Hole in the Rock, dolphin watching, fishing, paragliding, diving.

If that is not your thing there are art galleries and museum and Pompallier Mission where the French Catholic missionaries made prayer books in the Maori language and they run it as a working museum – something not to be missed.

In the morning wake up in your comfortable king size or queen bed to the sound of the native birds’ chorus, then take your breakfast outdoors.

Cloud 8 is a modern holiday home with updated furnishings, a good size, easy managed kitchen and open plan living. Fridge, freezer, microwave, and dishwasher provided. It is the perfect base for your fun filled Bay of Islands Holiday.
