Situated in the heart of the Bay of Islands on 3.5 acres of private land, we are proud to present the rare and beautiful Oke Bay Lodge, just 35 minutes from NZ’s first capital, Russell.

A 120 year old, two storey kauri historic villa in the perfect spot for your family re-union, boutique wedding, or time away with friends.

Being absolute water front, and situated on a narrow strip of land between two beaches, you’ll enjoy expansive views of the entrance to the Bay of Islands, Cape Brett Peninsula, and the Pacific Ocean. Tucked in a sun soaked pocket of native bush, you’ll love the privacy and peace that this property offers.

There’s all you need to relax here, including a brand new well equipped kitchen, and three new bathrooms. You’ll relish the slipper bath! The whole places oozes character and charm.

With beds inside for 12 people, and lots of room on the front lawn for the kids in their tents, it’s the perfect holiday location.

With huge decks back and front, there’s oodles of space for entertaining, plus a large lawn area for summer games. Kayaks, snorkelling gear, and fishing rods are also available.

Oke Bay Lodge is paradise if you are into walking and biking. It’s located right at the beginning of the Cape Brett walking track, rated one of the best 100 in the world – plus there are many other walks and trails nearby. Oke Bay is right here - a world class beach with incredible diving, snorkelling, kayaking, child safe swimming and fishing. Swim with dolphins if you are lucky!

Have a boat? Great! Anchor it right in front of the Lodge on the Lodge’s private mooring.

Is fishing your thing? The fishing in this area is known to be the best in NZ!

With off street parking for up to 8 cars the whole package is totally unique and absolutely amazing.

Only 1 hour from Whangarei and 3 hours from Auckland.

Find out more and check availability for Oke Bay Lodge just Google ‘Oke Bay Lodge, New Zealand’. We can’t wait to have you come and stay. We truly believe that when you stay here, you'll never be the same and you'll be booking to come again.


Oke is pronounced "oh-key"

When you stay, you'll have the whole Lodge all to yourselves :)

With a beach on both sides (one is Oke Bay which is arguably the best in NZ) its truly an incredible place to stay!


We have found from experience that what usually happens when guests stay is that extras end up coming and some expected guests do not turn up. In other words, final numbers don't always match the numbers estimated in the original booking.

So we ask people to keep a record when they are actually staying at the Lodge of the number of people who stay each night and then do a tally at the very end to work out the final cost. This works well.

Hope that makes sense.

Have you seen these videos about the Villa and Cape Brett walking track?





The NZ Herald recently did a video about the Russian Billionaires mansion which is not far down the coast from us. The guy on the video mentions that the coastline where Oke Bay Lodge is situated is rated by National Geographic Travel Magazine as the 2nd equal most beautiful coastline in the world. http://www.nzherald.co.nz/business/news/article.cfm?c_id=3&objectid=11565728

    Beautiful house with everything we needed and more. Whilst it is a bit a windy drive to get to Oke Bay it is 100% worth it, this location is second to none. Waking up to sea views, watching sunrises and sunsets - its just amazing.
