Description

This idyllic island is part of the Bay of Islands maritime park and is a short 7NM boat ride from either Russell or Paihia. The well appointed Lockwood home nestles amongst established trees right in the centre of this glorious sandy bay. With a short 20 metre walk down to the beach, this is a perfect retreat to get away from the daily grind. Explore the island on one of the many walks, check out the list of endangered bird species recently relocated on the island, listen to the Kiwi call at night, or just enjoy the peace and sunshine at this unique location. Access is by one of the commercial water taxis or else your own private boat. There is a wharf to unload your gear plus a dinghy available and a mooring to tie up on.

    A picture and reality perfect idyllic Kiwi iconic Bach, beach and bay. The house is clean, tidy and comfortable. We didn’t want to leave and will certainly be coming back.

    We found the location great because we could buzz round the Bay of Islands on our boat, and hook up to the mooring at night which made boating really easy for us.

    Lovely peaceful island getaway where you can really relax and get back to nature. We spent many hours walking the islands bush tracks and just hanging out on what has to be one of the best beaches in the bay. The kids learned to snorkel and paddle board and even caught a couple of good sized snapper for dinner. The stingrays in the evening are always fun to watch and the water is so clear you'll think you're in Fiji. Rustic Bach-style accomodation (but with a TV for rainy days). Thanks Andy!
