About this Holiday House

Beachfront is an understatement – this romantic retreat is ON the beach! This iconic Kiwi Beach Bach has been fully modernised with contemporary décor, new furniture and equipped to a high standard. This is the perfect nest to relax, unwind and rejuvenate. Enjoy the unique vistas and attractions only the Bay of Islands can offer. Experience birdlife, dolphins playing and superb year round sunsets. Wander onto the beach hand in hand and explore secluded bays – or just sit back and be entertained by the constant procession of passing boats. Situated at Tapeka Point, just two minutes from historic Russell and 3 hours north of Auckland. The bedroom has stunning sea views and the gentle sound of the waves lapping below. If you really need to share the living room has an ottoman that converts to a single bed. Breathtaking unobstructed 270 degree views extend from Waitangi out into the Bay. There is no traffic noise or nosy tourists walking past. Relax on the covered verandah or outside in the sun in a Cape Cod chair, deck chairs or bean bags. Leave your towel behind as the all tide swimming beach and diving pontoon is only a few steps away. Rinse off under the HOT outdoor shower. Tapeka Beach Bach has a full kitchen and BBQ if you wish to self-cater, or collect a take out. Better still or enjoy a romantic meal on the Russell waterfront, just two minutes away. Facilities include a Nespresso machine, TV, DVD, BT sound, free WiFi, washing machine and dryer. Quality linen, towels and post stay cleaning is included in the nightly rate. Dinghy, 2 Kayaks (double and single) and boat ramp. Air conditioned for year round comfort This is not a hotel room, apartment or flat with onsite owners. You will enjoy exclusive use of this stunning self contained property in peace and privacy. Off street parking outside with room for a boat trailer. The location, position, views and nearby attractions is unequalled. Book your escape now. NEED MORE ROOM? combine with neighbouring "Bay of Islands Beachfront - Tapeka del Mar" and sleep up to 16. Tapeka del Mar is listed under Russell.

Great place right on the on the beach. Perfect location. It was clean and well appointed. The Nespresso machine was a real bonus!
Kassi Stephen
Beautiful location and a beautiful Bach, so relaxing listening to the waves I don’t think I have relaxed like that in a long time. We will definitely be back
Peter
This is a wonderful place with the ‘X’ factor that we were looking for in a back. Perfect location sitting slightly elevated above a great little beach. Looking out across to Waitangi with a great view of all the boats coming and going. The house is small but was well equipped with everything we needed. Perfect for a holiday for a couple. Thanks heaps to Clive for making things easy and being a great host.
