Fantastic site with direct access to a most beautiful beach with clear, calm water and a lovely sea view from lounge and the two double bedrooms. Very good, clean facilities - everything you need - and the pool and table-tennis tables are a bonus. Very good spot for access to Russell, Waitangi, etc., as well as just lying around on the terrace or on the beach. There are quite a lot of other houses about and it is a popular beach, but it was still quiet which we really appreciated. There were only 3 of us and we had masses of room. Beds for another 4 if needed.

This a great place to stay - beautiful beach, township and bush reserve. A lovely sunny and warm house with all the amenities you could need plus more just to make sure you're holiday is over and above. Would definitely recommend.

The Bay Retreat did not disappoint. We had easy access to the beach. Our kids could even be seen from the lounge window, it was so close. The house had everything you would except. Plus the added extras of the boat mooring, kayaks, and pool table.
Russell was a couple of minutes back over the hill. Very handy to take in the local cafés and watch the cruise ships come into the bay. We hope to stay again next year.

An excellent house with everything you would need. Quiet, great view of the sea, lovely beach. A clean, well maintained house that was a super base from which to see the far north.

My family and I had a great time at this property. The beach is only steps from the house, and the boys (6 and 8) loved the kayak, dingy and table tennis. The house was large and very clean and comfortable. A great time for all.
