Russell Lodge Rental Photos and Description

Lodge, 0 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 2)

Fantail Mill is a wonderful complex built to resemble a old NZ rustic timber mill town, with a modern luxurious furnished studio. A private balcony offers amazing views and sunsets over the teal blue waters of Orongo bay. A shady front veranda with morning sun and outdoor table and chair settings looks over the colorful gardens.

The quaint cottage with a guests' lounge offers guests a place to enjoy a DVD from the DVD library and watch it on the large TV or choose a book from the free library, maybe play a game of chess, or groups can gather in the evening for a chat and a drink. The cottage also has the free guest laundry.

We now provide a stunning outdoor kitchen, set amongst the native bush with full barbecue and 4 burner gas hob, kitchen sink and all the amenities, so now you can sit here in the evening with a drink while enjoying a meal. Fantail Mill offers the discerning traveller a wonderful quiet retreat away from the hustle and bustle of the modern world, but is only a short drive to the historic seaside village of Russell. Nestled into 1.5 acres of sloping coastal land with stunning sub tropical gardens, Cape Cod chairs scattered under the shady canopies of the ferns and bush, which is filled with the song of wonderful bird life including tui, fantails and weka, and at night, calls of the morepork and kiwi can be heard.

Four beautiful beaches and two wineries are within an 8-minute drive of Fantail Mill and a 510 m boardwalk, which is part of the Okiato to Russell walking track, is accessible directly in front of the property.

It takes around 40 minutes to walk into Russell, but around a 3 to 4 minute drive to the cafes and restaurants. A service station which sells supplies is only 200 m along the road.

Keith and Pete look forward to meeting and looking after you when you stay at Fantail Mill.

Fantail Mill is a super cute and pretty place.

  • 3 of 5

Fantail Mill is a super cute and pretty place. The grounds are beautiful with lots of flowers, trees and manicured lawns and everything is fantail themed. We loved it. The room was ok, however, we found it very small with hardly any space to unload your luggage or put your toiletries in the bathroom. Good for an overnight stopover but perhaps too small for a longer stay.
