We had an amazing stay at the bay chalet with plenty to entertain us in all weather. Sunny coffees on the breakfast deck, afternoon reading on the front deck and amazing sunsets that lit up the whole house. The table tennis and darts were a godsend for the rainy days. Everything in the house is great quality and thought through. The grounds are just lovely. It’s very obvious someone cares a lot about this house.
Great property. Lovely home. Well set up and perfectly equipped to host our large party of guests. The games room downstairs was great, and having the 2 bedrooms and bathroom off it was perfect for the parents and children, while the older family members stayed upstairs. Views were fabulous and with it being a short walk to Russell, location was excellent. Katriona was a great host and very accommodating of booking changes that we requested last minute. Highly recommended. Many thanks.
Amazing holiday home in Russell!! Plenty of room space, lovely kitchen dining area overlooking Russell. Short walk to town. We have stayed in a lot of bach's all over NZ and I think this was my favourite. Highly recommend!!!
