Special Attractions and Activities Nearby

Russell is so different from the rest of New Zealand and offers a variety of everyday activities. We are sourrounded by beautiful safe beaches with excellent access to boating and fishing, yet it is a peacful and protected environment. Steeped in history and tranquility it is one of the most idyllic seaside resorts in New Zealand. A careful guarded old world charm, as well as the reputation of the Bay of Islands and the lure of big game fishing has attracted many people for overseas and so Russell has become today an international village with about 1000 inhabitants. Sight seeing: Capitain Cook Museum, Pompallier Mission, Christ Church, Swordfish Club, Galleries, Flagstaff Hill and Long Beach, Duke of Marlborough Hotel. Several shops, a brandnew Four Square supermarket and the Russell wharf where all sightseeing tours start into the Bay of Islands. Golf Course,tennis court,bowling greens, all close by. At Opua Marina (10 min ferry drive)you can admire Yachts and Gamefishing boats from all over the world.

Thank you Annie for a wonderful restful stay in your home. Have not had such a beautiful view as holiday accommodation in a long time. Felt so restful each day waking to that and all the easy conveniences you had on hand for us to just chill at home. Highly recommended!

Hi Shona, thank you for your comment. I am happy when my guests are happy! Hope you had a good end of your vacation. Greetings to your friends, Cheers, Annie Thanks again, Annie
A lovely, cosy , inviting cottage with fantastic views of the bay. Very quiet and private. We could even go to bed with the curtains open to enjoy the night lights across the bay. Annie you were great! Such a lovely host who made us feel right at home. We would definitely stay again :)
Response from Owner
Hi Dean, thank you for comment about Aimeo. I hope you both are well and keep warm during the winter. Will be happy to have you again. Cheers, Annie
Aimeo Cottage is a perfect place to enjoy the Bay of Islands. Annie, the host, was friendly and helpful. Her home is spotlessly clean, inviting and very comfortable, with all the amenities needed. If I make it up to the Bay of Islands again, I won't look any further than Aimeo Cottage. Thanks Annie!
Response from Owner
