The perfect couples escape. Relax, unwind, reconnect and explore
Our family has owned the property since 2000. We love the Bay of Islands, the unspoilt beauty and attractions the area offers.
Clive purchased this Cottage in 2000
Why Clive chose Russell
Many so called beachfront houses have a road between the house and beach, has stones, is unsafe to swim or very tidal. This beach house is unique in that it is on a safe, sandy beach with no road or sand dunes to navigate. Unlike many NZ beaches you can swim any time of the tide and reach your depth quickly - even at low tide. Although quiet and private, the house is only 2km from shops, restaurants, boats trips and all historic Russell has to offer. You will also find the house very well equipped making it an ideal home away from home. The row boat and kayaks are also a bonus as there is so much to explore.
What makes this Cottage unique
- Leave your towel behind as the beach is only steps away - Constant parade of passing boats from yachts to cruise ships - No traffic noise or tourist bustle - Close to shops and attractions - Private with no shared facilities or onsite owners
