Annie's lovely cottage is everything you want for your stay at the Bay of Islands - and then some: it is spacious, clean, and decorated with Old World charm. The view over the Bay is fantastic and the neighborhood is quaint and quiet. If you enjoy cooking your own meals (like I do) you will appreciate the well appointed kitchen. Not only can you seat 10 people at the dinner table - you have enough plates to serve a 5-course meal ( not to mention the professional knives - sharp, thank you Annie!). My husband and I stayed for a week (in the middle of winter) and enjoyed every single day. Russell is only a 10-minute drive away and the ferry is just around the corner. Oh, and Annie's bread is to die for - make sure you get a taste.
We can only recommend the place and would definitely come back - Thank you for a wonderful week, Annie!
