Beachfront is an understatement – this cosy retreat is ON the beach nestled just above the sand. Newly renovated with a fresh contemporary décor and new furniture.

The perfect nest to escape, unwind and rejuvenate. Enjoy the unique vistas and attractions only the Bay of Islands can offer. Experience birdlife, dolphins, Kiwi habitat and superb year round sunsets. Wander onto the beach hand in hand, explore secluded bays in the kayaks, swim to the diving pontoon, catch fish from the dinghy or just sit back and be entertained by the constant procession of passing boats. Situated at Tapeka Point, just two minutes from historic Russell village with shops, award winning restaurants and boats trips.

This cozy one bedroom beach house has a comfy new queen bed with stunning sea views and the gentle sound of waves. If you must share, the living room has an ottoman that converts to a single. Newly furnished with a modern beach theme. Air conditioned for year round comfort

Breathtaking views extend from Waitangi out into the Bay. No traffic noise or tourists walking past. Relax on the covered verandah or outside in the sun on Cape Cod chairs or bean bags. Leave your towel behind as the all tide swimming beach is just steps away. Rinse off under the HOT outdoor shower. Explore walking tracks and Kiwi habitat..

  • Wonderful location just a few steps to the beach

    Wonderful location just a few steps to the beach. Lovely to hear the waves lapping and look out across the bay and watch the sunset. Very quiet at night for a good sleep, but easy access to Russell for shops and restaurants, and of course the charming Duke of Marlborough hotel for dining. The accommodation is comfortable and cosy with the feel of a real beach bach stay.

  • The property is as close to the beach as you can get

    The property is as close to the beach as you can get. The views are amazing from all rooms. Tapeka Bach had everything needed for a relaxing and comfortable holiday. The decor is charming and the cottage was clean and well maintained. We had a lovely stay and hope to come back in warmer weather to take advantage of the beach. This spot is an excellent home-base to explore the Bay of Islands. Waterfalls, glowworm caves, walking trails, markets and restaurants are a scenic drive away.
