My husband and I spent 5 nights at Kiwi Heights and enjoyed every minute. The house was private, extremely spacious and beautifully furnished. It was also spotlessly clean. The views from the huge windows and doors leading out to the terrace were stunning and ever-changing with the tide coming in and out and the fantastic sunsets. Lisette and Eoin were perfect hosts and we really appreciated Lisette meeting and greeting us and telling us about the local area and the native birds etc. We would love to return.
Kiwi Heights is a very spacious, and very clean home. It makes for both a comfortable place to spend time, and a base from which to explore the lovely Bay of Islands. The views from high over the tidal waters and boats are amazing. The kitchen is very well equipped. The washing machine is very handy if you have been travelling for a while as we had. Overall, a very easy place to stay, instructions for everything, and everything worked. A great bonus was that Eion and Lisette run the Russell nature walk, which gives an opportunity to see local wildlife, including a chance of seeing kiwi on a nocturnal walk, if you are lucky. (Eion’s expert knowledge of his local kiwi population meant we were very lucky) Thank you Lisette and Eion
This is a really beautiful place. It has the most incredible views and is the perfect spot to sit and relax. The house is really well set up with everything you need including a full kitchen and laundry. There is plenty of spaces to sit and relax inside and out and it is only 5 minutes from Russell. The house is immaculate and really beautiful and it is pretty likely you will not want to leave. A great spot for a few days or longer.
