Description

  • Free for you use: kayaks, bikes, fishing dingy and gear, table tennis, spa and heated swimming pool
  • Fantastic views, centrally heated, warm & cozy in the winterless North!!
  • Super, caring community life with heaps going on in the off-season!!

Located 7 minutes from Historic Russell, on Waikare Inlet, you will find our beautifully kept wood paneled cottage on 5 acres of native bush. Barbecue on the deck as you watch the sunset change the ocean's colours or have a spa in our covered outdoor area glimpsing the myriad of stars lighting up the inlet. Would you like a dip in the owners heated swimming pool next door? Not a problem! Its yours between 10 - 3 every day October - June.

We are located right across the road from Russell's newest native bush walk, there's a lovely secluded swimming beach 5 minutes walk away, or you might want to launch one of the kayaks at our own waterfront (tidal). The kayaks can also be taken to Russell's finest beach, Long Beach, where they can be used as surfing kayaks. The kayaks have fishing rod holders if you feel like trying your luck for one of our many luscious snapper or we keep a row boat and oars with two rods for trying your luck in our bay.

We have a range of FREE sporting equipment for your use: tennis rackets, mountain bikes, the kayaks and row boat with fishing gear, croquet, trampoline, table tennis, basketball hoop, lots of indoor games plus SKY, wifi available.

And of course, there's Russell. Swim with the dolphins, take a jet boat out to the Hole in the Rock or a leisurely sailing cruise around the islands, charter a boat for a day's snapper or marlin fishing, visit our historic sites and places, or just bring a book while the kids romp on the beach or paddle in our crystal clear waters. There's too many things to do here - I haven't even touched on the heaps of places you'll find to explore within an hour's radius of our home.

  • Very clean and spacious house, comfortable beds, great views

    Very clean and spacious house, comfortable beds, great views. We enjoyed the kayaks and dinghy. It was a bit of a walk to get to the water with the little ones but they made it - down easier than up ;) We enjoyed the pool, would have enjoyed it more if it had been warmer (we supposed it was only heated thanks to the bubble cover which was not quite enough with this cool spring weather). It was good to have the spa bath (not pool) to warm up the little ones after a swim. Only 1 bathroom+ 1 toilet

    Owner/manager responds:

    You have a lovely family Delphine. Enjoyed having you. I'm sorry you found the pool not warm enough but just to let you know its heated via a heat pump (electricity) and kept at 27C or above continuously. The pool cover is only to help keep it warm and cut down the power comsumption. Yes, the outside temperature definitely influences how warm you feel in the pool!
