    Perfect location, on the saddle between Russell and Long Beach/Oneroa, an easy walk to each. Views over Russell on one side of the house, and out to the islands on the other. A deck with picnic table on either side, choose which depending on the sun and wind direction. A clean and tidy house, decor a bit dated but that is the charm. Everything you need for a comfy stay. Recommended, and would rent again.
