About the property

Apartment, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 6)

This historic (B rating) homestead has been in the family since it was moved to its current site in 1885. It was run as an accommodation house by my great grandmother Jane Morris, then after her by her daughter-in-law (my grandmother) Kathleen Morris. This apartment is upstairs in the building and has just had a major renovation with new floors, ceilings and walls. In fact the whole apartment is completely new! Feel as though you have stepped back in time as it is beautifully and comfortably decorated in traditional style. It certainly has the WOW factor. Nice and cool in the summer, and cosy and warm in the winter. It is located right on the beach front at Opua. Wake up to the sound of sea gulls and stunning views over the Bay. Opua is very quiet, but there is always something happening. Sit on the verandah and watch the activity. Only 100 metres to the car ferry and general store, another 100 metres to the marina and café. By road, it is only 5 kilometres to Paihia or Russell. A fantastic walk between Opua and Paihia following the coastal walkway, with other lovely walks only a short distance away. It is also a great starting point for the Opua to Horeke bike trail. Simply the best place for a relaxing, rejuvenating holiday and a perfect location from which to explore the stunning Bay of Islands and the Far North. Please note there is another apartment downstairs that sleeps 4 people. Please see the separate listing.

Special conditions:

No smoking anywhere on the property either inside or on the grounds - this is due to the historic rating and age of the building. No naked flame allowed (i.e. lighted candles). No pets. Only one vehicle per apartment in carpark. On-road parking available just up the road.

Extras: Cleaning (Required, NZ$80.00 per stay); Linen (included);

Great location on a quiet street with lovely views over the water and all the boats. Amazing wooden furniture with very comfortable beds. I would definitely stay there again next time I go up that way.
