This is our piece of paradise. Since 2001 we have enjoyed this amazing and historic part of New Zealand, the beach life and exploring the Islands.
Clive purchased this House in 2000
Why Clive chose Russell
There is beachfront and then everything else. This is your opportunity to live the ultimate Kiwi beach Bach dream. With no road or sand dunes in front, the house, stunning views and facilities provides for a memorable holiday. 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 and spacious living areas invite the extended family or share with friends for less per head that separate accommodations. Quiet and private yet shops, restaurants, 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. This is more that accommodation - it is a destination - you will not be disappointed

Such a Relaxing beach house with great deck and amazing views and sunsets. Wonderful place for wee children. The best experience was listening to the Kiwi calling at night and having the opportunity to see one in the wild for the first time. Great fishing and appreciated the great boat parking and mooring.🍹�🐬�🦆�🦞�🌞�🌊�
