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!

    We had a lovely long weekend in Russell and the bach was just right for the 2 of us celebrating our anniversary. The view from the 2 decks was amazing and it was wonderful sitting in the sun on the deck eating breakfast.

  • Beautiful location, right on the water

    Beautiful location, right on the water. If you are after a tree-house type feel, this place is for You. Going at the end of May, the house was cold at night - Be prepared to rug up if staying during the winter months. Very private and everything you could need was available, right around the corner from Russell - making it a perfect base for day trips.
