About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 4)

This is lovely, comfortable, beachfront accommodation, fully furnished, and traditionally redecorated in sympathy with its age. Feel as though you have stepped back in time. It is nice and cool in the summer, and cosy and warm in the winter. The flat is located right on the beachfront 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 and something to watch, whether it is the car ferry chugging back and forward across the bay, or yachts and motorboats making their way in and out of the harbour. Sometimes you can be lucky enough to see dolphins or orca. The homestead is only 100 metres to the car ferry and general store and another 100 metres to the marina and café. By road, it is 5 kilometres to Paihia or Russell. It is right at the beginning of the coastal walkway from Opua to Paihia. Other lovely walks are only a short distance away. There is also a cycleway from Opua to Taumarere Station. It is simply the best place for a relaxing, rejuvenating holiday or weekend and a perfect location from which to explore the stunning Bay of islands and the Far North. Please note - there is another apartment upstairs in the building that sleeps 6 people. Please see the separate listing.

Special conditions:

As it is a historic building there is no smoking anywhere on the property, inside or out. There is also a ban on any naked flame (i.e. lighted candles).

Extras: Cleaning (Required, NZ$60.00 per stay); Linen (included); Pair of sea kayaks (included);

Just as shown in photos on website. Best location to stay in the Bay of Islands if you want quiet location with great view and close to shop and club. Rosie and Dennis were great neighbours/care takers who managed the balance of friendliness and personal space really well. We had fun being your neighbours if only for a little while. It felt like a second home. Clean, comfy flat which was tastefully decorated with beach, holiday feel. We were sad to have our holiday come to an end.

I would like to say this place is all about the location, but it is just a great accommodation in all ways. It is furnished beautifully in historic furniture. Every aspect of our stay was awesome. We had a great relaxing 4 nights there. If we were closer we would definitely stay there again. We would recommend it to all.
