Enjoy this comfortably equipped classic Kiwi Bach which was, in a previous incarnation, the old schoolhouse. Well appointed and set privately off the road, you can enjoy views overlooking Russell, Paihia and Waitangi along with fabulous sunsets from the verandah. The large front lawn is ideal for sunbathing, dining or to play cricket, croquet or frisbee on. It is also frequented by a family of wekas who will happily accept any pieces of spare bread you leave there..

Safe and attractive Long Beach is a 3 minute walk away. There are many local walking tracks and beaches to explore and historical sites to visit.

Head down to the Russell waterfront and wharf for cafés and any fishing or tour bookings you might like to make.

    The property was clean and tidy with all mod cons we needed and was in a fantastic location with amazing views and a beautiful beach just a short walk away which is great for dog walking, running or just a relaxing walk. Our only suggestion would be that the owners invest in new mattresses as the beds were very soft so not great to sleep on. Finally, there is no wifi so if you need to be connected 24/7 then this place won't be right for you. A great place to just kick back and relax :-)

  • Perfect little holiday cottage

    Perfect little holiday cottage. Beautiful views. The resident Weka's made it extra special. We will stay again! We arrived to a clean and comfortable Bach. The owners have been good in leaving it well equipped for holiday makers and I really liked that the final cleaning and linen was included. We had a great family holiday there.
