About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 4)

After sailing half around the word, we were so happy to find this beautiful place on the Okiato Peninsula, overlooking the bay towards Paihia and Waitangi. Bush and Bay infront of us; waking up to the song of the Tui, go to sleep with the "noise" of the Moorporc.

Your Holiday accommodation is upstairs with an open plan living/dining/kitchen area and 2 bedrooms with bathrooms, almost all with magnificent water views. The cosy living room is fully furnished with CD,DVD, Sky TV , Books in English and German and lots of information about New Zealand.

The kitchen is fully equipped with dishwasher, microwave, coffee machine, mixer , a gastop and electric oven.

A deck surrounds the house to catch the sun from morning to sunset. There is a Gas BBQ, furniture and umbrellas.

The subtropical garden with lawns, bananas, macadamia-fig-citrus trees offers several quiet sitting areas for relaxing and reading.

Wireless internet connection available.

Your laundry can be done for a small charge.

The rent includes linnen and towels.

A short stroll through the bush leads you to an almost private swimming beach at all tim and the Okiato-Russell walkway starts right at your doorsteps.

In a 7 min drive you reach Russell township with supermarkets, pharmacy,gift shops, cafes and reastaurants for each taste.

The Museum, Pompallier Mission,Christ Church, the Swordfisch Club, Galleries,The Duke of Marlborough Hotel, Flagstaff Hill and Long Beach are a "must to see". All excursions on the water leave from Russell Wharf

Russell is one of the most idyllic seaside resorts in New Zealand. A careful guarded old world charm, as well as the reputation of the Bay of Islands and the lure of big game fishing has attracted many people from overseas and so Russell has become today an international village with about 1000 inhabitants.

Driving time from Auckland 3 1/2 hours. Air link between Auckland and Bay of Islands Airport several times a day.

I am looking forward to welcoming you !!!!

My first experience of booking a bach, and I wasn't disappointed.

  • 5 of 5

My first experience of booking a bach, and I wasn't disappointed. The property and location were exactly as described. Wonderful, panoramic views of the bay of islands from the verandah, pretty garden, extremely well-equipped with everything you need for a comfortable, relaxing stay. A great find.
