Early European settlers described Russell Harbour as "A Most Noble Anchorage" Our home has both panoramic views of this anchorage and also across the bay towards Paihia.
The house is on a quiet street yet very close to the action in the village. A 6 minute walk takes you down to the restaurants and cafes in Russell. We are 7 minutes walk to the Flagstaff Lookout and adjacent to a bush reserve with lovely walks.
The house has two bedrooms with Queen size beds and a third bedroom with two single sized beds. You can wake up in the master bedroom to the sight of early morning fishers or ferries leaving Russell. In the evening, relax watching the racing boats with colourful sails making their way around the buoys as you enjoy a drink or barbecue from our outside dining area.
If you have a trailer boat there is some off street parking down our driveway or in front of the house on the street. Just ask for details.
We do not live in the same house but are available if you need us.We will give you directions on how to access the house, so you can check in any time after 2pm.
We have a bushy lower garden with pathways and hiding places for children and a concrete area where they can ride their small bikes or scooters.
It's easy to find us as we are 8 mins walk from the pedestrian ferry from Paihia which links in with Auckland buses or shuttles to the Bay of Islands airport. If you come by car we are 10mins drive from the Opua vehicle ferry.
We do advise you to keep very small children off the wooden part of our deck . A barrier can be put up on your request to keep toddlers safe.
We have a strict no pet policy due to kiwi birds/ nesting boxes and web cams in the adjacent bush.
We have a 10% discount for stays 7 days or longer.
