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.

    We recently spent seven nights staying at Cloud 8 and thoroughly enjoyed it. The house is in an excellent location within a short walk to the shops and restaurants of Russell. The view is fantastic overlooking Russell township, the wharf and over to Paihia and is especially pretty at night. The house itself is lovely and spacious with two lounge areas, dining area and well appointed kitchen and a great deck for soaking up the views and sunshine - the photos don't do it justice!

  • What an amazing property in a wonderful location

    What an amazing property in a wonderful location. The views have you transfixed, so much so that you're a little reluctant to leave and explore the local area. It's an easy walk into Russell although a little tougher on the legs on the way back, however, when you have these views it's well worth it. Thank you Josephine and Adrian for making our first 'Book a Bach' experience such a positive one

    We had a fantastic break at Cloud 8. The property is in an amazing location with fantastic views. The photographs online are good but do not do the property justice. There is plenty of space and it is well equipped.
