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.

    This is a great property, ideal for a group of families on vacation. The living room and balcony are very spacious, and a selection of toys/DVDs/Netflix are useful for rainy days. Tapeka Point Beach and Tapeka Track (a beautiful walk), and Rocky Bay (on the East side) are literally minutes away. We also enjoyed Russell and Long Beach. Excellent.

    So sorry. The iron and ironing board was in the upstairs bathroom linen cupboard. Glad you had a great time :-)
