One queen bed apartment with fully fitted kitchenette and lounge area that faces the Pacific Ocean, with spectacular views and access to beach.
This apartment has a double door between the Pohutukawa Apartment that gives the option for two couples to share or to bring the children as the bed in Pohutukawa will split into 2 singles by request. SKY TV is accessible including movie and sports channels. There is a BBQ area and spa pool to use with a world class picturesque view.
We’re located at Tapeka Point at the entrance to the world famous Bay of Islands. Tapeka Point is approximately a 3 hour drive from Auckland and just two kilometers form the historic village of Russell. Before the Europeans settled in New Zealand the area was a Maori Pa (fortification) but these days we call it home and invite you to stay at our beautiful beachfront property. Tapeka boasts two beaches ideal for fishing, swimming and other water sports It has a boat ramp for launching boats. Watch passing Orcha whales if you are lucky or swim with the wild Dolphins off the beach. Nearby is Kauri Cliffs, Waitangi, Kerikeri and other world class golf courses. Visit the famous “Hole in the Rock” at Cape Brett, a popular way to view the Islands of the Bay, take a day sail or sit back, relax and watch the endless parade of boats passing by. There’s also an abundance of great walking tracks in the area and it’s the perfect base from which to explore Northland. Enjoy the use of our kayaks or relax and watch the sun go down from the spa. If you need to collected from Russell give us a call. This is a free service.
  • Smart space walking distance to Russell. We saw a kiwi on Jack’s walkway coming home at night. Need torch. Access to kayaks on beach was fun. Clean, well laid out and comfortable.

  • The Apartment was stylish and comfortable and more spacious than we expected. There is a beautiful cove just down the stairs, but Dave also directed us to a great swimming beach just 5 minute walk away. We drove to the restaurants in town; it’s not too far but the road is narrow and steep for walking. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    Maril2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • I cannot recommend this place enough! We stayed at Dave and Anitas for just two nights on our big tour of New Zealand. The location of the apartment was perfect, after a long drive, it felt quiet and idyllic but not far from the town at all for restaurant access. We spent our time kayaking around the bay where we saw dolphins! And relaxing and swimming in the cove which was 10 seconds from the apartment. It was like our own private beach! We wanted to ditch the car for a day so we walked into Russell through the bush which took around 30 mins, an enjoyable walk with great views, a bit hilly. Everything we needed was provided for and we felt that the hosts went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. It was the perfect start to our adventure!

    Betsy2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment was super clean and new. Great shower and view from spa is lovely. Our hosts were very kind and helpful.

    In Tapeka Point with a short stroll to swimming beach and just a 5 minute drive to Russell with all its cafes restaurants and old world charm. Or stay at home and utilize the well appointed kitchen and bbq area. Choose to sit on the deck and watch the boats go by or enjoy the bush walks and local attractions nearby. We have a portable crib so families with babies are very welcome.
  • Lovely unit near the beach with a great view! The rooms are tidy and spacious. Sharon is a great host, the family went to the restaurant she recommended and had an amazing dining experience.

    Machteld2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • This home is elegantly appointed and very clean. Hotel style sheets and towels which felt very elegant. Huge shower with excellent water pressure. The views from this unit are really beautiful. It was an ideal set up for us as a couple traveling with our adult daughter and her friend. It’s a bit of a walk to the downtown area, but we prefer the quietness and the lovely view. Also, there were some excellent walks nearby that were not to be missed. We particularly enjoyed the hike down to the beach at low tide, hiking to the sacred hilltop which is about a 15 minute hike from the rental. Also, there’s a cool hike through the hills to the town that has just been created. As stated in the description this home is at the top of a very, very steep driveway. Don’t be afraid, we got the hang of it really quickly. Lastly, the owners live on site which is something I always appreciate. Pride of ownership is always a plus!

Just two minutes over the hill is historic Russell village with shops, Island boat trips, ferry to Paihia, restaurants and historic places
  • A truly unique piece of NZ paradise. This stay sums up everything a perfect kiwi summer holiday brings to mind. The location is perfect regardless of the weather. The deck offers shelter views across the bay. There is alway something new to look at from the changing light to boats to wild life. We had wekas strolling around the deck, a wild ginuea pig came to visit while we watched a large stingay swimming in the shallows from the deck chairs. The beach is a 30 second stroll, with kayaks and a dingy if you want to venture further. A great walk up to Tapeka pt starts just meters up the Rd. Clive is very quick to respond to any communication. The Bach is appointed with every convenience while still feeling relaxed and authentic. A highly recommended stay. Thanks Clive!

    Dion2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great beach house perfect location. Clean and very comfortable. Will return.

    Pete And Sandra2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Quintessentially NZ Paradise. From basking in the morning light to watching the sun set across the water, Tapeka Bach provides the most perfect spot to take it all in. Just over the hill from the main street of Russell and yet like a tucked away local secret, the Bach is positioned in a prime position of The Bay, providing ease to soak in all the natural beauty of the direct surroundings and it's thriving local bird life. Many moments were spent watching my family laugh and swim while I relaxed on the deck, wine in one hand, book in the other. Even visiting family managed to moor right at the front. It could not have been better. Clive, the host was wonderful and friendly and always accomodating with information, making things easy and seamless. The perfect holiday. THANK YOU. What a spot! We will return.

    Dean2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great views, veranda all around the house, outdoor shower, plenty of spots to sit and enjoy the day just watching the sea, birds & people. Beach a walk down the grassed slop and location to Russell close by. Most of all quiet 🤫

    Roslyn2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • A more than classic kiwi Bach in arguably one of the best locations in the country. Would recommend to all.

    Russell, Northland, New Zealand

    Sun drenched, intimate nook, with views of the bay at Russell. We offer a one bedroom, self contained unit. We are centrally located and only eight minutes walk from both the waterfront in Russell and the beautiful, golden sands of Long Beach.
    Self contained unit attached to main house.
    Russell is an historic township formed by the whaling trade in the 1800's. The general atmosphere is very relaxed. The main activities for the area are vineyard tours, relaxing on the beaches, dining out, swimming, strolling, chilling, tramping, snorkelling, fishing, scuba diving, going to the pub or just doing nothing at all. The local establishments often have various forms of entertainment on with excellent live music all day most weekends. In addition there are various festivals throughout the year such as the Birdman, the Jazz Festival and the Country and Western Music Festival.
  • What I liked best about this place was the location. The township of Russell was just a short stroll down one side of the hill and Oneroa Beach was just a short stroll down the other. Everything was clean and comfortable about this place. There is a microwave, barbecue and a one element electric plug in cooktop here, but there is no actual oven and stove, so keep that in mind for your cooking plans. Well worth the stay!

    Elizabeth2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely little flat, nicely finished inside, with great view of the bay and an easy walk to both town and the beach.

    Laura2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Very well positioned, less than a 10 minute walk to Long Beach one way and Russell the other way. Great view out to the Bay of islands. A comfortable self contained apartment with very helpful hosts. We had a boat trip booked for us within minutes of arriving!

    Julie2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • This is a brilliant place to stay. Everything within walking distance plus superb ferry / boat trips on the doorstep. Superbly equipped, really comfy bed and great shower.

    Tea Tree Cottage is half way between Paihia and Opua with access to both via the coastal track . It is the perfect base for a walking holiday with many walks in close proximity. You’ll love the cottage as it is quiet and has native bush between it and the water. The place is perfectly set up for couple, twin share or those with a new family (portacot available on request). Accessibility: Please note the cottage is situated down a flight of garden stairs.
    The cottage has north and west facing french doors which make the most of the sunshine. You have a deck overlooking native bush and water, and a large claw footed bath to relax in. The cottage has kauri floors, bench and detailing throughout.
    Pt Veronica is tucked away at the end of a short peninsula. It is very private with expansive views out over the Bay of Islands. There is a lot of regenerating native bush, birds and walking on offer.
  • Great place to stay! Great views of the bay with access to the observation deck, Opua and Paihia. (The latter, however, easier to reach by car) the property is in perfect condition, sparkling clean and well equipped! Our stay was just great. There are many offers around the Bay and Russel. We particularly liked the sailing tour! The restaurants and shopping in Paihia are excellent.

    Heiko Alexander2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Such a cute space, loved the bathroom decor! Easy to come and go as we pleased and the hosts respected our privacy. So nice to get away to a nice quiet relaxing spot with a beautiful view from the deck, exactly what we needed before heading back to the busy city

    Monique2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay, friendly hosts, bright and clean home in a very peaceful area. Highly recommendable!

    Melissa2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • The most gorgeous little cottage to stay in! Small but beautiful inside and out, perfect for a nature loving couple. Cottage is right next to host house so not overly private especially the deck area however we loved our stay here, loved the claw foot bath, the view from the bed and having dinner out on the deck. Location is great, so easy to get to Paihia and Russell. Thanks to Charles for the tips of what beaches to visit during our stay. They were stunning.

    Zoe2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • The photos don’t do this place justice. It’s beautifully located, presented and maintained. Robyn is keen to help and sets out to make sure your stay is comfortable. Probably the most amazing bed we’ve ever had in an Air BnB. There are plenty of small touches that make this place feel homely. It’s central to different walks around the bays and an easy drive to larger towns. Or you could pass your holiday just chilling out on the lovely Bush surrounded verandah. Thanks for a wonderful few nights

    Emily2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place with great hosts. We were given a basket of toys for our toddler to play with and he was well entertained for the duration of our stay.

    Ryder2020-01-09T00:00:00Z

    Opua, Northland, New Zealand

    My place is on a hill and has great views of Te Haumi bay beach and a peek across the sea to Opua. Approximately 15mins walk downhill to the main town centre of Paihia and Maritime building for the famous Hole in the Rock cruise and Dolphin Boat tours. You’ll love my place because it’s just off the main road and is quiet. The studio is extra large with open spaces, comfy beds and the cosiness. Suitable for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, and families (with kids).
    The studio apartment has a seperate bathroom with a shower, own laundry, large kitchenette with big fridge freezer & compact benchtop oven with two elements for cooking. There is a queen bed and king bed, TV with sky, lounge suite, reading and dining area. It is bigger than your average size studio apartment with lots of space.
    Quiet but safe neighbourhood. Short walk to town and beach.
  • 👌 Perfect

Rhys received us warmly and informed us very well. We felt very comfortable, so we can highly recommend this accommodation.

  • This is a beautiful property with stunning views from the balcony. The hosts were there to help but very respectful of our privacy which was important to us. The yummy biscotti was a nice touch. You definitely need to be in a car to stay at this property as the nearest restaurants and cafes are not exactly walkable. However with a car this place is very conveniently located for paihia as well as Russell. Would highly recommend this property.

    Haseeb2019-11-24T00:00:00Z

  • Ruth and Johns place was definitely a fantastic find! Absolutely stunning view from the cabin and your own deck space. Just a few minutes drive into town. Very clean and cost cabin, we loved the King Bed and very much appreciated the use of a high chair and baby bath. Lovely hosts who were a pleasure to talk to. One of the best air bnb experiences we have had! Thanks again :)

    Jessica2019-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • This place had everything you could want: beautiful views, comfy beds, and friendly hosts. I would definitely stay here again!

  • The Cottage is a lovely place to stay when in Piahia. It is spacious enough for 4 adults and has all the amenities needed for a self-contained stay. The hosts were very accommodating and easy to communicate with, and left an abundance of suggested activities to do in the area. Views are wonderful. We would definitely recommend a stay here when passing this way.

    David2019-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place. Amazing views! We stayed with our 9 month old and were given a babybath and high chair to use when we arrived- thanks. Overall a lovely relaxing stay.

    A delightful beach studio unit with shabby chic decor, full kitchen and separate bathroom. Across the road from world famous rock fishing and a lovely shingle beach. Literally 2 minutes walk from a sandy swimming beach and a grassy picnic area with a boat ramp as well.
    This is a fastidiously clean unit with kitchen allowing you to self cater. It has a super king bed that has the option to be split into 2 singles if guests prefer. We are a friendly fun loving couple and live upstairs. We have a great knowledge of the area and can help you with local information and activities, maybe even join us for a pre-dinner drink.
    Welcome to Tapeka View! We’re located at Tapeka Point at the entrance to the world famous Bay of Islands. Tapeka Point is approximately a 3 hour drive from Auckland and just two kilometers form the historic village of Russell. Before the Europeans settled in New Zealand the area was a Maori Pa (fortification) but these days we call it home and invite you to stay at our beautiful beachview property. Tapeka boasts two beaches ideal for fishing, swimming and other water sports It has a boat ramp for launching boats. Watch passing Orcha whales if you are lucky or swim with the wild Dolphins off the beach. Nearby is Kauri Cliffs, Waitangi, Kerikeri and other world class golf courses. Visit the famous “Hole in the Rock” at Cape Brett, a popular way to view the Islands of the Bay, take a day sail or sit back, relax and watch the endless parade of boats passing by. There’s also an abundance of great walking tracks in the area and it’s the perfect base from which to explore Northland.
  • Lovely place spotlessly clean

  • We had a wonderful stay at Chrisrine's place. Her and her husband are amazing hosts and their place has everything you need for a great stay in Russell. The views from their deck are incredible and it's a short walk to the beach. Would definitely stay here again.

  • Tapeka View is located in a beautiful location close to Tapeka beach. The apartment is comfortable and well equipped, with a great outdoor space and beautiful sea views. There are some really interesting walks nearby, including Tapeka Track and Jim's Track, which leads on to Flagstaff Hill and Russell. We spotted rare weka birds and there's a good chance of seeing kiwi as well.

    Looking for somewhere special where you can chillout, kick back, and experience the magic of the Bay of Islands? Affectionately called “The Woo Hoo” cottage, my fully self-contained studio is for you. The stunning view over the Bay and across to Russell takes your breathe away. Instantly, you feel a sense of peace and a positive vibration envelops you, welcoming you to your own magical world. This is a special place for special people, come and experience the magic -stay more than DAY!
    The view is outstanding, across the Bay to Russell. The seascape is ever changing as is the lighting. Watch yachts and cruisers come and go, cutting pathways through the blueness of the sea. It can be difficult to drag yourself away from such an amazing sight. For those musically inclined, there is a guitar (sort of kiwi tradition really). Why not immerse all of your senses. Take a walk in the garden, stop and smell the roses, find a meditation spot, or pick yourself some fresh herbs to make a cup of tea (mint is a favorite). Handpick some fruit or maybe pluck some fresh lettuce leaves, you never know what might be in season. The studio is magical and you will find yourself totally absorbed in its peacefulness and ambiance. The kitchenette has everything you need to cook a meal. There is also a colouring book and pencils for those wanting to do some mind therapy. Please note it is suitable for a single person only. If there is more than one of you, check out my double unit www.airbnb.co.nz/rooms/5230973
    My neighborhood is very peaceful. My street is a cul de sac and generally the only traffic that comes down the road are locals or people who are lost. Just down the bottom of the hill by the Te Haumi Bridge is a walking track to Opua. It meanders through bush and along the beaches and is truly beautiful. Its about an 1.5 hours walk one way.
  • Wonderful place with a great host! Jans place is very clean and exactly as pictured. Jan herself is a gracious host and easy to communicate with. You won't regret staying here.

    Maja2020-03-03T00:00:00Z

    This is a comfortable quiet downstairs two bedroom apartment. One queen room and one twin room, plus a cosy living area with heat pump. Own bathroom. Tea and coffee facilities. (Hosts live upstairs). The listed tariff is for 2 people. We are very close to 2 beaches - a rocky beach for fishing and a sandy beach for swimming. The historical village of Russell is less than 2 km back over the hill, where you will find the historic Duke of Marlborough Hotel plus other cafes, restaurants and shops.
    This is an apartment but without a kitchen. However there is tea and coffee making facility, microwave oven, and refrigerator. We provide provisions for breakfast. Share laundry with hosts. Own ground level patio with gas BBQ with side burner and outdoor dining setting. All linen provided.
    Tapeka Point is a magical place. With only three streets of houses it is very quiet and peaceful.
  • When we book a holiday, we always look for Superhosts. There should be another classification for Elise and Alistair! It goes without saying that the unit is clean, super-comfortable (the bed is as good as any 5star hotel we've ever stayed in) and the location is great, but they made us feel as though we were old friends, catching up again after years apart. We are looking forward to staying again.

    Pat2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely comfortable place. Great location a short 2 minute walk to a beautiful beach. Elise and Alistair were friendly and helpful. We loved the fully stocked fridge and nice surprise of wine, a special place to stay. Very close to all shops and restaurants. We will come again

    Kenny2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • What a lovely place to stay. It was our first stop after 48 hours of continuous travel from the UK. Our three nights at Ferry Landings were relaxing and enabled us to explore the Russell area and visit Waitangi. There is a beautiful view from the balcony and Andrea is an engaging and very helpful host.

    Anne2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice location with a great view. Andrea is very easy going and is very insightful about the area.

  • Perfect location, quiet street but very easy walk to shops and restaurants. Jane is a wonderful host, friendly but not intrusive. The unit is super clean, the bed is very comfortable, the shower is very good. Everything inside feels sturdy. Jane provided great amenities - shampoo, conditioner, soap, also enough lovely breakfast items for the morning. There are several maps, brochures, and guides for the area. Russell is very easy to navigate, you don't have to drive, lots to enjoy on the water. We had a great day at Urupukapuka Island.

    Randi2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful cottage- sparkling clean with beautiful fresh aesthetic. Wonderful large, comfortable bed, lovely bathroom with a tub and shower. And a compact kitchenette area with thoughtful goodies that Jane stocked for us. There’s a little table and chairs just outside and the garden is beautiful and feels very private. Great place for a morning tea and biscuits. Jane is wonderful- has thought of every detail to make her guests comfortable, friendly and helpful, and responsive. Location- less than 5 min walk to the center of town with restaurants, cafes and the dock fell which to catch ferry to Paihia and for any tours and trips

    Monica2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing accommodation. Excellent host. An amazing place. I can’t recommend more highly.

    Susanne2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • We felt very comfortable in Jane's apartment! Everything was spotless and Russell is an ideal starting point to explore Bay of Islands! :-)

    Lena2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Jane is a delight. She’s energetic and sweet. The perfect person to point you in the right direction for a wonderful stay in Russell. She sent me down to her friend, Colette, on the wharf who handled all of my day trip logistics. Easy! Jane also recommended good restaurants. The Duke of Marlborough and Gables! Yum! These are the kinds of things that make a respite or vacation memorable! Her interior style is warm grays, whites and good textures in the space. It’s comfortable and chic. The bathroom is sparkling clean and looks like no one has ever used it, truly! There are snacks, treats, bottle water, coffee, teas, and even a glass size bottle of champagne! I loved her place — even wanted to extend a night, but alas — her place is popular and she was already booked. Thank you, Jane for everything at for meeting me at my bus in Paihia. It’s the little things! Also, her husband carried my heavy suitcase to the cottage room — so 5 stars to him too!

    Penelope2020-01-17T00:00:00Z

  • We had a fabulous week at Karens place. This is my first experience when the reality of the accomodation is better than the online photos. Karen was a generous host with all the little touches. The beach we walked to in bare feet. It was just out the back gate and along a short path.

    Karen2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is wonderfully equipped. The living room with kitchen is very spacious. The bedroom has a very good bed and a very spacious closet and a nice chest of drawers. In the bathroom with toilet is very well equipped with an external window. The house has its own beach access. The bay is fantastic for resting and swimming. The location of the house is very good to be able to experience the region around Rassel. Excursions to Capa Reinga and as a day trip with the "90 mile Beach" and the sand dunes are also feasible (plan 12 hours with food). The boat trip to Hole of the Rock is worth doing.

    Gerhard2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Karen’s place was very clean, fresh and comfortable. It is situated in a perfect, quiet position from which to explore the beautiful bay of islands. If you’re not a keen walker a car is needed to get to Russell as there is no bus. Kayaks were available and access to the water was through the back gate. Unfortunately we ran out of time to use them. We can highly recommend Karen’s place and would stay there again.

    Glenys2020-02-11T00:00:00Z

  • Stayed a night. Very good location doe Whangamumu track and went to see the whaling station.

    Angela2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • It was a wonderfull experience to stay at the house and to get to know Bob and Louise. We felt so much welcome! Highly recommended to stay there!

    Georg2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • This is one of the most extraordinary Airbnb experiences I've ever had! Not only was the place incredibly beautiful and peaceful, right next to the beach surrounded by old trees. I also was lucky to learn a lot about Maori culture, to join Bob on his water taxi trips for free and to go out for fishing one night. If you are interested in an insight into Maori family life and happy to spontaneously jump on the boat, when Bob gets a call for a taxi ride, I highly recommend to stay at this place!               

    Tanja2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Such an awesome place to stay. Would definitely recommend for a nice couple get away weekend. Awesome hospitality, great rooms and such a nice place to relax.

    Caylah2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Louise and Bob are fantastic. They involved us with their workshops (weaving, balm making, bread making) and water taxi rides, fishing and teaching us about their culture and local insights. They live in the perfect magical location and we had a great stay. The amenities are shared and have everything you require and are very clean. Bed was super comfortable and there’s a nice cool breeze at night. You can use the kayaks and hire the SUP’s and go on guided JetSki rides. We never got time to do this as we were out and about with Bob sightseeing and Brian fishing at night!!!! In the morning, walk a short stroll to the coffee caravan! Opens at 10am The Bay out the front of the house is perfect for kids and it’s only a short distance, 300m by car (or walk) then up stairs to sandy Oke bay which is also beautiful.

    Jane 2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay, perfect location. Can’t beat this for value

    Will2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • What a wonderful place, right on the beach. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay which included kayaking on the clear blue water, staring up at more stars than I've ever seen in my life, waking up to a beautiful view and taking a water taxi tour around the Bay of Islands (courtesy of Louise and Bob). Highly recommended.

    This is the perfect private holiday retreat. Set amongst the bush clad slopes of the Te Wahapu Peninsula, with no neighbors in view, adjacent to an expansive bush reserve with abundant bird life and only 7 km from the historic Russell Township. Kanuka Loft is a very quiet, peaceful space. A great place to come and do nothing, yet with all the Bay of Islands has to offer at hand.
    The Loft is above a large disused timber barn. Built with hand milled timber it has beautiful views and extensive decks for outdoor living. The open plan living and dining area is spacious and comfortable with a fully equipped kitchen. There are two bedrooms, one double with a queen bed and one twin with two singles. There is a heatpump for the winter, a laundry and ample parking.
    From Russell Township you are able to enjoy excellent restaurants and cafes, access the many boat trips leaving from the Russell wharf and enjoy the beaches and historic attractions. From Te Wahapu road you can join the Bay of Island Walkway. For cyclists both the Opua rail trail and the Waitangi bike park are nearby.
  • A great place. We can totally recommend. Stunning views from the deck. Peaceful & situated within beautiful grounds.

    Aaron2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Really lovely place, beautiful views, very private and close to Russell. The loft is super well equipped, well furnished, bbq and decks for morning and afternoon sun. Much better than expected, would loved to have stayed longer!

    Thomas2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • We had the most peaceful time in the Kanuka Loft with beautiful views of the water. We really appreciated the binder of local attractions put together by our hostess—we enjoyed dinner at the Gables, coffee at Pompallier Mission, and a boardwalk among the mangrove trees. Thank you Anna for a wonderful stay!

    Annette2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely private location. Fabulous view.

    Olivier And Sandra2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • I can not recommend this place enough. I really think Anna needs to get better pictures because from the moment you arrive to getting up to the balcony overlooking the Bay of Islands, your jaw is on the floor. It's a really special place and is just a few minutes' drive from Russell itself. Tranquil, beautiful and relaxing. It's worth every penny.

    Ciaran2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • It was absolutely perfect to explore the Bay of Islands. Secluded and private so transport is required but in the evenings we didn’t want to be anywhere else except on the beautiful balcony watching the sunset over the bay. Thank you Anna!

    Glenda2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • This place has a quite spectacular yet tranquil setting. All amenities were of a high standard and the lodge was very clean. Anna as host is very responsive to queries or general information. Very highly recommended and without hesitation or qualification.

    Toby2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • This place was a real gem! A truly unique little glamping spot in the middle of a beautiful vineyard surrounded by NZ bush and the ocean. Beautifully designed accommodation, perfect for those looking for a mix of 'camping' and luxury and true serenity. Sarah was so kind & helpful in giving us plenty of local recommendations & making us bookings for restaurants etc. A very memorable & unique experience, hope to return! :D

    Anya2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • This is a unique find for anyone wishing for a relaxing stay in an incredible, stunning part of the world. It had all we needed for a relaxing weekend. The view was particularly magical especially at sunset. The small thoughtful touches like the wine and breakfast made the experience even more memorable! The only regret we have is we didn’t make it up to the restaurant but we will be back again for sure. Thank you Sarah :)

    Natalie2020-02-23T00:00:00Z

Everything you could need is there, my husband especially loved being able to cook dinner on the bbq with the amazing views. Thanks for the use of the kayaks too ... we had a lovely time exploring the Bay of Islands from the water. Katrina and Miles are super friendly, welcoming and easy to deal with.

  • Beautiful spacious and comfortable air bnb so close to Russell and the ferry! The view is outrageously gorgeous and the apartment (which is just off the main house) is spacious and well appointed. We had such a lovely time! Would recommend closing the windows at night though to keep the mosquitos out. Other than that - perfect place!

  • Brilliant property & excellent location, just what we needed, the hot tub was an excellent bonus. Although we never met our hosts they went above & beyond to assist us when we added an extra night to our stay (it really was that good) and allowed us to checkout late, can't recommended this place enough. Many thanks. Jay, Beckie, Roxie the puppy, Leo & Sharon.

    Jonathan2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic time, we had high expectations and that's exactly what we found. Great location, very welcoming and generous hosts, very clean place; everything was just fine. Very happy to recommend.

  • Wonderful communication with hosts . Great layout of house with large spacious indoor /outdoor dining with views overlooking natural Bush and the harbour. The spa was wonderful! Clear expectations and where to find things in the “manual”. Great tips for local attractions. Most enjoyable stay - relaxing , peaceful and refreshing 🤗

    Robyn2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • This place is great! Up on a hill with a gorgeous view of the water. We enjoyed the breeze on top of the hill. The hot tub was perfect for an evening dip and star gazing. Beds are comfy. It was a bit of a walk on a steep hill to get into town, so we ended up driving with our young children. But the view outweighed that.

    Alexis2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay, just a 10 minute walk to Russell and a less than 5 minute drive to a gorgeous beach. The house is comfortable and tidy, the hot tub a pleasure after a long day at the beach, and the view lovely.

    Maggie2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely house - clean & tidy, spacious, bright, great view, good kitchen, good instruction manual, beds are comfortable and beautiful clean bed linens. Large and clean spa which is awesome! Great location just 2 minutes drive to Long Beach, 15 minutes walk to the wharf, shops & restaurants. Our family enjoyed our stay in Russell and in this house!

    Irene2020-01-08T00:00:00Z

  • The best Airbnb I have stayed at. I was visiting with my sister and we found Peter and his son to be great hosts and great company. The house is great and the views are spectacular. It was a convenient base for our daily activities. That said. we found the time spent at the house to be truly relaxing and enjoyable. Treasured memories. I cannot recommend Peter’s place highly enough.

    Andrew2019-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • What a lovely experience! Peter and Oscar’s house isn’t the easiest to reach (but we do appreciate Peter being on hand to drive us up and down the approach road with his 4x4 as and when necessary), but the views from their property are outstanding, as is the peace in this isolated spot. We appreciate that we were provided with our own space, and had access to all amenities in the kitchen (including a shelf in the refrigerator for our food in addition to a barbecue). We were given as much privacy as we wanted, however it was a pleasure taking in the view whilst enjoying a glass of wine with the host.

    George2019-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed every second of our stay. Location is the best you can get. And Peter is an excellent host!

    Anton2019-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Peters home was exceptional, super clean and welcoming. The views are to die for and also he is an outstanding host, very warm, friendly and welcoming and goes way beyond most Airbnb hosts to ensure that you enjoy your stay. He let me store some food produce in his fridge which was welcomed. I enjoyed using the pool, all in all a very unique space. You will love it there.

    Joanna2019-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Incredible place, one of those locations that take breath away. Peter is such a wonderful and interesting person. We enjoy so much our stay!!! We strongly recommend from all point of views.!

    Juliana2019-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Peter is a amazing host. His hospitality is absolutely 5 stars. He has has been helpful with everything, such as driving us up and down in this property (we did not have a 4WD), allowing us using his kitchen , suggesting the best beach to go.... He is really a great person to talk to. Thanks John

    Francesca2019-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Peter is beyond a great host and really made sure that our stay was a pleasant experience. Excellent communication, warm, welcoming and went out of his way to ensure we had everything we needed to explore Russel and feel at home. His space and the view from the house are breath taking but Peter and his son made our stay a trip to remember. Thank you Peter and Oscar.

    Renee2019-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Unsurpassed views, stunning seclusion and so close to some of the very best the Bay of Islands has to offer. The consummate host looked after us with empathy and balance, welcoming us and also giving us the space to enjoy a truly unique place - totally recommended !

  • Our favorite stay in Oceania! The hideout truly is a nice place to relax and while it is a guest house unit, it's very private and nice. We especially appreciated the small touches in this unit that went above most stays, the style, the space, the cloth hangers, maps/info on local hikes/tourist spots. The couch, kitchen table, and bed are all very comfortable while having everything spaced in a way where it feels open. There's also a nice balcony and a very spacious bathroom.

    Alvin2020-03-10T00:00:00Z

    Stephen2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • The place is really wonderful, super confortable, clean and quiet. It’s a spacious and beautiful nest in the trees. You will find everything you need (the aircon is a must). Perfect place to relax; you feel at home. Plus, they’re are very reactive and the communication is easy. Highly recommended.

    Hilda2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • The place is nice, clean and comfortable with all the amenities you need (including a kitchen if you're planning on cooking!). There was plenty of tea and coffee, also with a little jug of milk in the fridge. The hosts have also collected a range of maps and brochures for a lot of the tourist attractions around the Bay of Islands. Location is really convenient - around 7 minutes drive to Paihia, and very close to the car ferry to Russell. Heath and Maree were very communicative, and prompt to respond. We loved our stay here - we were really sad to leave!

    Zoe2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • A really lovely place to stay. Clean and well supplied with everything you'd need, private and secure in a pretty bush setting. Off road parking for the boat we had with us and Heath and Maree were helpful and relaxed

  • Such a great place to stay and enjoy the Bay of Islands. The accomodation is immaculate, but what really can’t be beaten is the private access to a secluded beach, and if that isn’t enough, you can borrow a kayak and find an even more secluded spot! Dave was an awesome host who made us feel welcome, with some great tips on how to make the most of our short stay. Thanks Dave

    Tommy2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • Stunning views and walk to a nearly private beach. A quiet neighbourhood that is a quick drive to town. The room has all you need. The town of Russell is a gem - fabulous food, shops, a beautiful sea walkway.

    Barbara2020-01-20T00:00:00Z

  • Dave was a wonderfully welcoming and thoughtful host. Room was well equipped,comfortable and in the most stunning location with kayaks! We will be returning!

    Scott2019-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • If you are scrolling through Airbnb looking for possible places to stay in the Bay of Islands stop right here! We had the most amazing couple of nights at Dave and Anita’s place the only tough thing was leaving! The studio is beautiful with more than you’ll ever need and the view from the garden is breathtaking. The hot tub is the perfect place for your breakfast cuppa watching out for dolphins in the bay. We spotted some on our first morning and shot down to the beach and into the (complimentary!) kayak to join the whole pod for half an hour of pure joy. Just us and around 15 dolphins with their young dipping and diving under and around us it was the most magical experience and has totally made our honeymoon and we were only on day 3! Even if you don’t see the dolphins it will still be one of the highlights of your trip staying here-the hospitality and friendliness of the hosts is second to none and the studio spotless and really well equipped.

    Davyd2020-03-02T00:00:00Z

  • Sharon and Yarn have an incredible property. You have a private entrance to your room from the deck, kind of like a motel. The room is good size and has an en-suite. Bed was comfy. They have a small fridge and table and chairs and provide tea, coffee, milk, and light refreshments. Very nice touches to an already incredible room. Also cool to see them feed the quails twice a day!

    Romantic sub-tropical hideaway in a Bali Hai garden setting on the beach! Perfect for the couple seeking a new upmarket loft, all the mod cons plus privacy and nature!! Hosts offer self directed photography tours, birding & bush hikes, kayaks & SUP's. Can arrange Island trips and Bike Shuttles.
    Captivating, front row views of Bay Of Islands where it's all happening. Sailboats, dolphins and picturesque evening harbor lights. Accessibly remote, north facing aspect, warm and sheltered. 4km from Russell. Lapping waves, fragrant plants and Tui birdsongs you won't hear if you're in the centre of town. It's remarkably peaceful and rejuvenating.

Surrounded by protected bays for all forms of paddle sports. We are 10 minutes from Russell Village by car. Perhaps 20 minutes by kayak.
  • We really hit the jackpot with C J's place. What a lovely and well-thought out space. :) We had everything we needed for our stay. The studio is very clean and modern, with a cozy island vibe to it. The views of the bay and Russell were stunning. Al and Cindy were very hospitable and friendly. Truly a romantic hideaway tucked in the canopy among the song birds. We will be back... Mahalo nui loa!

    David2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Cindy and Albi were extremely welcoming when we arrived. We chatted for 45 mins even before we took our bags out of the car! We instantly connected. They’re are extremely hospitable and we’re an absolute pleasure to get to know. The studio is gorgeous. Private, clean with lovely touches. The view from the balcony amazing and just a short walk to the beach to grab a kayak to pop over to Russell. We would highly recommend staying at their place. We are just disappointed we only stayed two nights!

    Victoria2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • You can only praise this place in the highest notes! A wonderful place of rest in beautiful Russell. The perfect starting point to discover the Bay of Islands. The studio is equipped with everything and so lovingly decorated that you immediately decide not to leave this place! Above all, the terrace with the incredible view, the great garden with its own beach do not make it easy to leave! You couldn't ask for better hosts! Super nice, helpful and generous! Thank you again for the SUP board and this great experience! I hope to see you soon !

    Yvonne2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • If you imagine a tropical garden paradise, & throw in some beautiful birdsong, a beach 2minutes stroll away then you have the Polynesian Beach Bach on the Bay!! Such a beautiful peaceful place to stay but with lots of fun things to do and places nearby to visit. We really enjoyed the kayaks, the warm waters for swimming and sitting the deck with a wine. It is definitely a place to return to. Absolutely loved the setting and the hosts are very welcoming and helpful. We would recommend a visit to Omata estate and Hone’s Garden while you’re there!

    Watch the harbour activities and ever changing vista from the deck of our clean and comfortable home. We are situated just above the car ferry on the Russell side of the Opua harbour. Shared accommodation in a kiwi family home. The ferry cost is $13 per car & runs a continual service. Or you can walk on for just $1 per person. Please note this is not an apartment but a family home that we share with travelers! There are times when I am not home, but guests are still welcome to stay.
    Our home is humble. Our view is magnificent!
    Okiato Point, Russell was the very 1st Capital of NZ & is an ideal base to check out the historical sites around the Bay of Islands area. Go sailing, kayaking, fishing, hiking and swimming. You can cross the harbour by ferry & dine at the local cafes of Opua. The area offers diving, parasailing, swim with the dolphins and much much more.
  • A lovely relaxed and peaceful home to stay over. We loved having the ferry close by. The view is truly amazing. Andrea is a welcoming and friendly host and easy to communicate with.

    Pamela2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent getaway, and as stated right at the ferry stop when you cross in the ferry. Views are spectacular, with everything you need at your fingertips. 8kms from Russell, but the drive was beautiful. Used it as it base for chartered fishing. Able to bring our kingfish back to share, cook and eat.

  • Andrea is a very experienced and exceptional host. She made us feel perfectly at home, immediately adding some thoughtful touches for my wife who was nursing a broken foot. The location and view were breathtaking and the facilities outstanding. We can't wait to return.

    Stephen2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Great value for money. Lovely host and a very relaxing stay, the lounge is the perfect place to read a book and look over the harbour.

    Ronan And Angie2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Directly above the pier, the view is great! The island is short of water, so the pipes are all stored rainwater. The room is small, but the price can't be too high, drink coffee on the balcony and look at the sea!

    Chenhe2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Loved this home away from home! Really is a gorgeous place to stay and Russell is so close by! Andrea was very helpful and so kind!

    Lynn2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Andrea was very personable and accommodating. Her cheerful and relaxed demeanour makes you feel like you want to stay there longer! Beautiful scenery.

Five minute drive to the beautiful little town of Russell where there are extremely friendly locals and plenty of good restaurants, cafes and a good variety of boat trips to take out on the Bay.

    Jane2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • My family and I had a lovely stay at this beautifully stylish and clean two bed apartment. Equipped with every amenity you could ask for, the spot is also well located right next to the beach and at the end of a quiet residential street. What’s more, while the property is shared, it’s still quite private. Enjoy the view from the hot tub out the back, or drive the 5 minutes to Russell. Thanks for having us!

    Emily-Jane2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect apartment to explore Russel and Bay of Islands area. Area is very quit and cosy. Try to utilize the complimentary kayaks on the beach just in front of the house.

    Christine2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • The place was modern and spotless clean. The host was very accommodating and friendly. House close to the beach and the spa was superb, me and my family had a great time at Russell...

    Janice2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • Loved Dave’s place. Absolute piece of holiday and the apartment was extremely clean and modern.

The view is brilliant and not far from local shops and restaurants - please go to Terra - we went twice in two days as it was that good! Fiona and Barry are great fun, love a good chat and have loads of tips regarding the area. I would highly recommend Fiona and Barry to all.

    Lynn2020-03-05T00:00:00Z

Fiona is indeed truly an angel and waited for us up late in our arrival, chatted with us on a variety of topics (from cricket to travel and painting!) and even offered to give us a lift to Waitangi (on Waitangi day, in such bad traffic) wow...! Thank you again for a wonderful stay

  • Windermere was totally delightful. The leafy surroundings were not only very appealing but they also afforded complete privacy. Every amenity that was needed was there and Joan was an extremely warm and informative host. We could have stayed there for much longer. Than you Joan.

    Thorkild2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Originally planned on spending two nights but could only stay one night. Very nice location and accommodation. Was as advertised.

    Volker2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • This was hands down our favourite place we have stayed in in New Zealand. The location and setting was simply superb. The apartment has everything you needed and more. Joan was a wonderful woman to have met and we have many fond memories of our time here. She recommended some amazing places to visit and was so helpful and welcoming. We stayed here for a week, exploring around the Bay of Islands. It was the perfect base. With Pahia a short drive away with many restaurants and a lovely beach and harbour. There are some wonderful walks around here as well.

    The Gables Waterfront Apartment is housed in a lovingly restored historic building on the Russell foreshore with 'Reach out and touch the water' views of the bay. The apartment has its own private courtyard entrance. The living, dining and kitchen areas open through french doors onto the balcony terrace, the perfect place for morning coffee or an aperitif before dinner. Swim right outside on the waterfront beach or take your pick of any of the peninsula's other stunning beaches.
    The luxuriously appointed apartment is 2 storied, with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Fully furnished with modern appliances, the well equipped kitchen would please any keen chef eager to experiment with the wonderful local seafood and produce. The large loft bedroom enjoys beautiful views from the kingsize bed, the second bedroom features an original brick chimney feature with 2 single beds which can be zipped together to make a super-king bed. Character and charm abound in this stunningly spot.
    The Apartment is located right in the heart of Beautiful Russell township and placed above one of the areas premier restaurants - The Gables and is an absolute must do dining experience (adequate underfloor insulation and soundproofing is in place to minimise any disturbance during busy periods). Almost everything you could possible require is within walking distance including shops, other restaurants and cafes and various activities on or off the water. Glorious sunsets, yachting, fishing and boat activity, plunging gannets and the occasional dolphin are just a few reasons to enjoy the historic township of Russell.
  • Thanks Kelly, we had a wonderful stay . Loved Russell and the surrounding areas. A hike around Urupukapuka a must as is dinner in winery restaurant Sage at Paroa Bay winery.

    Bill2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • The Gables is a real Gem, location gives a real ambience

    David2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • My Wife & I & two Sons just spent 7 nights at The Gables. Great host, really nice apartment, friendly vibe, very handy position. We will visit again. Thank You 🙏🏻

    Fauziah2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • The Gables Apartment is gorgeous and very tastefully decorated with every mod con you might need during your stay. We mainly ate out as there are plenty of great restaurant choices in Russell and at nearby vineyards. However there are 2 supermarkets and the kitchen is well stocked for self catering. Someone mentioned noise from the restaurant below but most guests are gone by 10pm and we never heard anything. I can’t fault our stay and highly recommend it!

    Dania2019-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect Stay in Russell for four nights. Lovely apartment - perfect location. Bags of room in this spacious home and central to everything you may want to do. The shortest of strolls to the wharf to transfer to Paihia & just five minutes drive to the car ferry so you can explore Paihia, Kerrikerri & beyond. Kelly was a star and this was the easiest check in we have ever had. The restaurants treated as locals once they knew where we were staying offering to deliver food etc to our apartment. Our only complaint was that we couldn't stay longer in this lovely home. If everywhere we stayed went as well as this we would be happy campers indeed. Thanks again Kelly. Stu & Sara.

    Stu2019-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • Fabulous apartment in a fabulous location. Very comfortable bed and lovely linen.

    Tracy2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment makes the most of its location on the Russell Waterfront, with its deck allowing guests to be part of this historic promenade. The french doors opening onto the deck bring the outside in, and allow guests to enjoy the spacious living- dining room in privacy. It's a delightful, well appointed and very comfortable apartment.

    Barbara2019-10-21T00:00:00Z

  • We enjoyed staying 2 nights in Jarrad's place. The photos accurately show his stylish house in its beautiful location. Our room was clean and comfortable. There were a lot of electric outlets to plug in all our devices. Jarrad is very knowledgable about the area and offered good tourist advice. In addition, Jarrad is friendly and we enjoyed visiting with him.
