  • Cute, cosy self-contained cottage with a lovely view over the bay

    Cute, cosy self-contained cottage with a lovely view over the bay. Walking distance to an oyster shack which was sadly closed for the Christmas / NY break. : - ( but it's a peaceful place, close to Russell and easily accessible via the Opua car ferry.
