This near-new, spacious holiday home is set on a large, private site only 3km from Russell Village. It’s close to shops, restaurants, cafes and beaches but feels a long way from the holiday crowds. “Kiwi Heights” is the perfect getaway for couples or families with children over 5 years old. Enjoy all that Russell and the Bay of Islands has to offer or simply relax and enjoy the view!

There are expansive water views from the bedrooms, living areas and large decks. The sunny, open plan living area includes a well-equipped kitchen and there is a gas BBQ if you want to cook outside. The window seat is the perfect place to relax with a book, listen to music or just take in the scenery. You can plug in your laptop and connect to free wifi in the office alcove.

Kiwi Heights sleeps 4 people in 2 bedrooms - both with water views. The master bedroom has a king-size bed. The other bedroom can be made up with a king-size bed or 2 single beds. The second bedroom is available to groups of two only by prior arrangement. All linen is professionally laundered. For winter, there is a wood-burning fire in the lounge. Make use of the attached double carport for undercover parking.

This is a Kiwi Zone so you’ll be able to hear kiwi calling at night. We’re involved in kiwi conservation projects around Russell and aim to be environmentally sustainable; our appliances are water-efficient and low-energy, facilities for composting and recycling are provided.

During your stay you can visit historic attractions in Russell, enjoy beautiful beaches or eat out at a range of cafes, restaurants and pubs. To explore the islands take a trip on one of the ferries, yachts or day-cruises that depart from the Russell Wharf. And it’s only a short ferry trip across the bay to Paihia and Waitangi. If you want to be active there's a selection of walking tracks nearby, including the Bay of Islands Walkway. You can cycle along the Opua rail trail or test your skills on the mountainbike tracks at Waitangi. E-bikes, kayaks and SUPs are all available for hire in Russell.

If you fall in love with Kiwi Heights and want to stay for an extended period, please enquire about our rates for long stays.

    We could not have asked for a better experience! Lisette's home is just beautiful, perfectly appointed for style and comfort. Loved the views, decks & birdsong! We appreciated the detailed house info she provided so that we could treat her home with the same respect and care that she gives it and her guests. If our travels bring us back this way we'd love to stay again! Perfect location to explore the Bay of Islands (except that we found we were tempted to just stay at the house!)

    Kiwi Heights is well located near to Russell but with privacy and great harbour inlet views and also views across to Pahia. The house is excellently equipped with all you might need to self cater if you wish. It is clean modern and warm. It has all day sun and great outdoor wraparound decks for outdoor dining. Russell provides all you need for food supplies and services and local restaurants are great for lunch. We loved it all.

  • We loved staying at Kiwi Heights

    We loved staying at Kiwi Heights. The location is 5 minutes from Russell and is very private with a commanding view. The house is newly renovated and very modern.
