Description

Terracotta Gardens is a beautiful holiday house and extensive garden in "Romantic Russell", centre of the lovely Bay of Islands, New Zealand. The house has two levels connected by an elevator, each with their own private, very large outdoor deck and spacious lounge and living area.

There are three upper double bedrooms and one lower bedroom with private ensuite and spa deck. Fully-equipped kitchen/dining, lounges, bedrooms and bathrooms. The lower level has a separate kitchenette with microwave oven, mini-fridge and small stove-top. Broadband internet access via Wifi is available.

Terracotta Gardens is on the hillside above the township with a view west across the Bay towards Waitangi and north across a bushclad valley where morepork and kiwi call at night and weka and tui during the day. A path descends the slope through beautiful gardens to Long Beach road where it is a five-minute walk either into the main township, ferry whart and foreshore or over the saddle to the excellent swimming beach and spectacular view of the Bay and outer islands at Long Beach.

Road access to the house is from Oneroa Road opposite the Pomare Road intersection. A stroll down Pomare Road brings you to Matauwhi Bay and the yacht club while Oneroa Road extends along the ridgeline and gives alternative walks to Long Beach, the township and to Matauwhi Bay.

  • This was a wonderful house to stay in, clear, warm and comfortable

    This was a wonderful house to stay in, clear, warm and comfortable. It was a home away from a home and we had a wonderful time. The views were glorious, the location lovely and the owner super-friendly and super-helpful. We will definitely be back :-)
