Special Amenities

In historic Russell you can charter a fishing boat, swim with the dolphins, cruise to the outer islands, or just laze on the beach with a good book while the kids romp in the safe swimming of Long Beach. Nearby are beautiful golf courses, ancient giant Kauri trees, boutique shopping at Kerikeri, and of course day trips to Cape Reinga or the Hokianga. You won't encounter the hoards of tourists like you'll find in Tauranga or Mt Maunganui but many more special places and unique opportunities.

Special Attractions and Activities Nearby

Swim with the dolphins, charter snapper or marlin fishing, cruise the Bay of Islands, para-sailing, jet ski hire, boutique shops, golf, horse-back riding, and circus adventure park plus much more all within a 10 - 15 minute drive from the house. There's so much to do, plan plenty of time!

Great stay, Kathy and Rob were very quick and clear with communication made the trip up North for us nice and easy as first timers. The house is great for big families as there are beds everywhere, heaps of space and WIFI! The weather was a bit 50/50 but it's amazing having a spa right there for after long day trips and the house is cozy with everything you need in the kitchen. Paihia and Russell are incredibly close driving wise and the ferry is a neat extra that we don't get at home. Highly recommended the only thing we'd do different next time is stay longer than 4 days to do more.

Lovely home, just up the road from the car ferry which is really convenient. The bedrooms are big with a great amount of beds, everything you need for a lovely stay. It was pretty horrible weather when we stayed so lovely to be able to use the spa and make use of the table tennis table in the garage-that was fun. The garage is big too and a great place if you have teens that want to escape the parents. Thankyou for letting us use your lovely home we will be visiting again soon.
Beautiful home great location, spectacular views from both decks, plenty of outside activities , the spa was amazing, it has been upgraded from the 1 shown in the picture , great place for anyone wanting to relax , away from busy city life.
