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.

    A rather novel house situated within a patch of bush with lots of birds around especially tui. House is on several levels and is nice and comfortable. Good access to the beach at Russell via a bush track that runs alongside a stream. An enjoyable place to stay.

  • Spotless, comfortable and unique place to stay

    Spotless, comfortable and unique place to stay. Only a five minute walk from Russell town centre and the jetty for cruises and the ferry to Paihia. A great place to relax at the end of our holiday.

  • Amazing location, very private yet only ten minute walk away from village

    Amazing location, very private yet only ten minute walk away from village. Views from property unbelievable and sounds of birds make you feel that you really are living in a tree house. Russell is an amazing location, one of our favourites in the Bay of Islands.
