The Bay Cottage is situated in historic Te Wahapu Bay on the Russell Peninsula in the Bay of Islands. With its waterfront setting,'The Bay Cottage' is the ideal, romantic "get away from it all" location with comfortable and welcoming amenities. It provides a peaceful and secluded location for your leisure break or holiday.

A short drive to Russell Village, yet a world away from everyone, 'The Bay Cottage' provides a stunning waterfront holiday venue with decks looking out over the bay.

This is a great spot with easy access to the historic Bay of Islands, Waitangi Treaty House and other early sites of interest in what was the first capital of New Zealand.

For dining in Russel - we recommend the Duke of Marlborough on the waterfront, or Hone's Garden behind the Gables Restaurant - great wood fired pizza and craft beer!

  • The location was stunning but the access was terrible

    The location was stunning but the access was terrible. My husband is very fit but he had difficulty getting our suitcases up to the cottage. It's very slippery when wet & would not be great for anyone who is elderly or unfit. The DVD player did not work unfortunately & the cooking hob was not really adequate but luckily there was a Weber BBQ to cook on. Apart from that we enjoyed our stay.

  • The Bay Cottage is situated on a hill overlooking Te Wahapu Bay

    The Bay Cottage is situated on a hill overlooking Te Wahapu Bay. It is a very peaceful and quiet location, walking tracks nearby . Tui birds and other bird life all around. Lovely deck off the dining area, with roll-up windows to protect from wind or rain. The cottage is very cozy, like a cabin. Stone fireplace, window seat. Kitchen is well supplied with everything you’ll need. Sleeping area is upstairs with comfortable bed. There are games and books if so desired. We enjoyed our stay!
