Stroll down from this spacious holiday home to beautiful Tapeka Beach for swimming, kayaking (kayak provided), sun or a spot of fishing. Enjoy the sea views from the large decks, the living areas or from the master bedroom. Bush and beach walks are there for those who feel energetic. Cafe and restaurants are close by in beautiful historic Russell or via a quick ferry ride to Paiha. This is your gateway to the magnificent Bay of Islands or to venturing further afield to tourist attractions in Northland.

This house has close access to two beaches. The first is a safe sandy beach with pontoon (in summer). The second is a rocky beach with rock pools. Good for snorkling and exploring.

Walk up the hill toward Russell, go to the end of Titore Way and you will be able to walk through the bush to Russell. A must for us and our grandchildren. We make this a daily event. The reward is coffee or icecreams on the waterfront in Russell. Or to get your daily exercise walk up the hill to Tapeka Pt, the old Maori Pa site, and enjoy the panoramic views of the bay.

These are just some of the options to fill your days. You will find you do not have enough hours in the day to do everything.

  • Loved our stay at Teaghlach Tapeka

    Loved our stay at Teaghlach Tapeka. Beautiful location and wonderful views, so close to the beaches and Russell town. So well equipped and huge house, there was only two of us but it easily accommodates many more. The large deck was excellent for afternoon drinks overlooking the sea and breakfast in the sun. Being able to bring our dog was a HUGE bonus. Thanks Bev, we would definitely love to stay again. Debbie, Sean and Luca

    This was better than a home away from home - it had more 'luxuries' than our own! Loved the outdoor living area, and the overall spaciousness. And the bath! Great for an autumn holiday, when the days are colder and shorter - very comfortable house to spend evenings in. Loved the sea view, that it was a short walk to the beach, and a few minutes drive over the hill to Russell. Could definitely come here again!
