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.

    The location was amazing and the beach at the rear of the house was exquisite. The view from the bedroom windows and deck was spectacular. The house would be nice once the interior renovations have been completed.
