The Russell Tree House.

Private, quiet, birdlife, close to nature. A place to relax in only 5-minute walk down to Russell village.

Two-bedroom architect-designed timber-lined house surrounded by trees, just below the famous flagpole. From the decks look out over the sea to Paihia, or up through the trees to historic Flagstaff Hill. Sun all day long. House is surrounded by reserves with walking tracks and abundant native and introduced birdlife. Four-minute walk from house through bush tracks to small and secluded Watering Beach, from which the old whaleships used to get their fresh water; a short walk at low tide around the rocks will bring you to Russell village.

Special conditions: Three night minimum stay. $165 per night during holiday times e.g. Easter, Labour Weekend
