Description

  • Expansive views of the entrance to the Bay of Islands, Cape Brett Peninsula, and the Pacific Ocean.
  • Situated on an isthmus (a narrow strip of land between two beaches). Historic character villa.
  • Peaceful. Quiet. Incredible "holiday feel". New Kitchen. 3 bathrooms. Clean. Personality plus!

Huge deck at back for entertaining. Large lawn area for playing/tents. Dolphins often come into Oke Bay and many a visitor to Oke Bay Villa has swum with them. If you are into walking you won't be disappointed. There are many interesting walks: old whaling station, Kauri forest, sunken ship wreck, and many other shorter walks in and around Rawhiti. Once you are there, and you settle in, believe me, you won't want to go anywhere else! But if you do...Other things to do include: visit Russell's historic township and once the colonial capital of New Zealand (35 minutes by car). In and around Russell are Russell Museum; Big game fishing in the outer waters of the Bay of Islands Adventure; Parks; Art galleries; R Tucker Thompson tall sailing ship which cruises the islands; Sunset cruising; Restaurants, Cafes, and Wineries; Boat cruises around the Bay of Islands; The 'Hole in the Rock'; Horse riding ; The Okiato-Opua car ferry; Kayaking in the sheltered waters of the harbour; Opua to Paihia Coastal walk; Orongo Bay oyster farms; Sport fishing; Sunday markets at Kerikeri - 45 minutes north; Water-sports, diving, snorkeling and surfing; Yachting and twilight sailing (seasonal); Native forests and glow-worm caves.Points of Interest: Christ Church in Russell, the oldest church in NZ; Waitangi Treaty Grounds, Pompellier Mission, Flagstaff/Te Maiki Hill etc. Walks: Walkway from Rawhiti to the historic whaling station at Whangamumu; Walkway from Okiato to Orongo Bay; Walkway to Cape Brett Lighthouse.To watch a great video of the property, go to You Tube and search for "cape brett walking track and Oke Bay Lodge". NB: The $110 is only for a SINGLE person renting the whole 6 bedroom Lodge. The price per person goes down per night per person when large groups stay i.e. We have a sliding scale of costs. Basically, the bigger the group who stay, the cheaper the per person per night rate becomes.

Special conditions: When you book, we ask you for a $500 bond which is refunded to you if you leave the Lodge like you found it.

  • This beautiful old little heritage buidling is gorgeous with heaps of character

    This beautiful old little heritage buidling is gorgeous with heaps of character. It is located on top of a little hill that outlooks the most incredible views out front and out the back of the home! A fishermans dream! A great get away to forget about the real world and live a dream of beautiful views, lovely locals, yummy fish and just a relaxing stay at a very very tidy, clean home. =) Cant wait for the next stay!

  • The property is just AMAZING

    The property is just AMAZING. We could not believe how nice the house and the location were. Even though it's an old house, it has been very well looked after. If you are looking for serene seclusion, this is your spot! It's only 45 minutes from Russell so it's still easy to get out and explore different parts of the Bay of Islands. The only con is that there are NO curtains anywhere! This made us uneasy at night but we made our own curtains with towels and sheets.

    The Oke Bay Lodge is a fantastic place to stay, the house was clean and very comfortable with amazing views across the secluded bay. We enjoyed sitting out on the deck with an open fire and the BBQ going! The booking and payment process was quite convoluted however and caused unnecessary stress, I would suggest using an online credit card system for all payments (does bookabach do this?) Other than that it was great, perfect location for the Cape Brett walkway!

    A great place to stay! We stayed there whilst running the Cape Brett track. Perfect location. Great facilities for a large group. Would certainly stay again if I am up that way and most definitely recommend Oke Bay Lodge to others.
