Description

Fantail Mill is a wonderful complex built to resemble a old NZ rustic timber mill town, with a beautiful furnished cottage. A private balcony offers amazing views and sunsets over the teal blue waters of Orongo bay. The quaint cottage has a double bunkbed and a queen bed in the open living area. The "barn" is ideal for groups as you can gather in the evening for a chat and a drink. The cottage also has the free guest laundry.

We provide a stunning outdoor kitchen, set amongst the native bush with full barbecue and 4 burner gas hob, kitchen sink and all the amenities. The cottage has a kitchenette. Fantail Mill offers people a wonderful retreat away from the hustle and bustle of the modern world, but is only a short drive to the historic seaside village of Russell. Nestled into 1.5 acres of sloping coastal land with stunning sub tropical gardens, Cape Cod chairs scattered under the shady canopies of the ferns and bush, which is filled with the song of wonderful bird life including tui, fantails and weka, and at night, calls of the morepork and kiwi can be heard.

Four beautiful beaches and two wineries are within an 8-minute drive of Fantail Mill and a 510 m boardwalk, which is part of the Okiato to Russell walking track, is accessible directly in front of the property.

It takes around 40 minutes to walk into Russell, but around a 3 to 4 minute drive to the cafes and restaurants. A service station which sells supplies is only 200 m along the road.

William and Tracy look forward to meeting and looking after you when you stay at Fantail Mill.

  • The place is stunning and such a beautiful place to stay in...

    The place is stunning and such a beautiful place to stay in you're near Russell. They provide more than you'll ever need and loved the outdoor kitchen. I couldn't recommend it enough if you're need some quiet time away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

    The Fantail Mill is a place that I will return to over and over. The location is a amazing and so close to Russell. The room was perfect. I used the cook out a few times and sat in the quite bush listening to the birds and drank wine. Fabulous. I would highly recommend a stay at Fantail Mill

  • More of room with a view, than a bach

    More of room with a view, than a bach. It is beautifully decorated, but too small for more than an overnight stay. As someone else has said, there was nowhere to put our luggage. The kitchen area is also tiny, though there is another kitchen provided in the grounds, and a communal social room.
