This is our piece of paradise. Since 2001 we have shared this ultimate Kiwi Beach house experience with local and international guests. We love this historic part of New Zealand, the beach life and exploring the Islands.
Why Clive chose Tapeka
There is beachfront and then everything else. Hearing the waves lapping and seeing nothing but the sea sets this property apart. This is your opportunity to live the ultimate Kiwi beach holiday home dream. With unobstructed views, no road or sand dunes to cross, private beach access and all tide swimming this is something unique. The Holiday Home includes quality linen and everything you are likely to need for self catering or entertaining. This is also a perfect home away from home and an ideal base to explore the Bay of Islands and Northland region. Another bonus is that the tide does not go out far and the water gets deep quickly, even at low tide. With 4 bedrooms, spacious living areas and expansive grounds, invite the extended family or share with friends for less per head than the cost of separate accommodations. Quiet and private yet shops, restaurants, vineyards, boat trips and attractions are only two minutes away in historic Russell village. Tapeka del Mar has been furnished and equipped with international visitors in mind. We believe the location, views, beach, facilities and local attractions are unequalled but don't take our word for it - read our past guest reviews. This is more that accommodation - it is a destination - you will not be disappointed
What makes this House unique
BETTER THAN BEACHFRONT - few properties are actually ON the beach with no road in front or view blocking sand dunes to negotiate. PRIVATE - guests enjoy exclusive use of the gated property, beach house, grounds, watercraft and all facilities. There are no on site owners or managers. VIEWS - unobstructed panoramic beach and sea views extend from inside and out. Being next to the main shipping channel vessels are always passing by close in - not to forget Dolphins. SUPERB OUTDOOR LIVING - huge deck with surround seating, dining, loungers and BBQ CAPACITY - the extended family can all stay together or share with friends as the 4 bedrooms and 9 beds can comfortably sleep up to 13 guests. Add neighbouring Tapeka Bach and accommodate 16. LOCATION - being so close to Russell this is the perfect base to explore the Bay of Islands and the entire Northland region. There are numerous attractions from historic places to boat trips, fishing and golf. FULLY EQUIPPED - Tapeka del Mar is furnished and equipped to a high standard. There is a granite kitchen with oven, gas hobs and ice maker - or use the outdoor BBQ. Laundry and all the home comforts included. Towels and linens provided ready to walk in and enjoy. Free WiFi, satellite TV channels, home theatre system, it's all here. BOATING - 5 kayaks and a dinghy (row boat) are included with life jackets provided. If bringing a boat there is a guest mooring, boat ramp, off street trailer parking, bait freezer, filleting station for the days catch and wash down facilities. Tapeka is the closest launching ramp to the many Islands and renowned fishing spots in the bay. This is one of only two available properties in the area that is truly on the beach. We can only take one booking for each night so book early.
