House was great, simple but well equipped kiwi batch. Great view from the deck and walking access to beach and Russell is just back over the hill.
Owners were awesome, helped us with Kayaking and fishing tips. Would stay again.

We chose the Beach House based on previous reviews and were not at all disappointed. This is a well appointed, spacious, house in a great location. The friendly hosts, Doug and William, made us feel very welcome. Thanks for a wonderful break in picturesque Russell (well, Tapeka Point .... even better). The walk to the top of the point is highly recommended for 360 degree views: the best spot in the Bay of Islands.

My partner and I came up for 10 days and stayed at the Beach House. It was everything that had been advertised and more. Great views, beach at the end of the driveway, warm and nice and clean and tidy. Douglas and William were great and made us feel very welcome. The weather was almost perfect, rained the last couple of days, but a great variey of books to choose from.
Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely house. We will be back. Thanks Sandy and David (Auckland)

This was the perfect bache for our stay in Tapeka Point. The view was great, and the accomodation was comfortable and spacious. William and Douglas, the brothers who own the home were very kind and accomodating. They let us use their kayaks and even provided a guided kayak trip out to one of the nearby islands. We would certainly recommend this holiday home!

Brilliant house for both couples and entire families. The views from the glass-sided deck are magical, with sun from first thing in the morning until late at night. The sandy beach is literally just down the driveway from the house, maybe 50 odd metres away - you can't ask much better than that. My wife and I just stayed there for five days and certainly hope to be back in the future. You can make this house in to either your private retreat, or the functional family base from which to base your daily excursions.

The beach is brilliant for both adults and kids. It's extremely sheltered and calm even when there are large breakers on the seaward side. There's a pontoon for the kids (and kid-like adults) to jump off about 15m off-shore. Long beach is about a five minute drive away if you're after a bit more surf.

There are plentiful locations for rock-fishing, with us having success within minutes - less than 10 metres off the rocks. A couple of good sized Trevally and Snapper were the result. It would also be a great place for kids to learn to snorkel at low tide due to the sheltered beach and rocky outcrops at the north and south end.

There is a well-surfaced concrete boat ramp at the beach but launching/retrieving at peak-low tide would be interesting due to a drop-off at the end of the ramp.

There were three bedrooms with plenty of storage space in each. The kitchen has most everything you need. The people that own the place are brilliant and really go out of their way to make sure you're happy and you know about the different things to do around the place.

I would unreservedly recommend this place to anyone considering staying out this way. Thanks guys.

Thanks Darcy and Alyson. Thanks for the wine too! See you in winter maybe? We still have great weather then too. Might be a bit cold for swimming, but usually calm for kayaking. Oh and the fishing is better! Take care. Sounds like you swam all day Monday too! Can't do much around here without people knowing what you are doing!!!

To make sure this place is deserted next year & available for whenever WE choose we would love to say: "Don't come here you'll have a terrible holiday & the land lord well he's just unspeakable !!!" but sadly we cannot as we have had one of our best holidays ever! We extended our stay from 4 nights to 8 & literally did not want to come home. We would thoroughly recommend this place and we are so pleased we chose it. It is lovely & clean and there are gorgeous views from the deck (safe from the tsunamis) & the hosts (William & Douglas) are really fun and relaxed people who make you feel at ease and welcome from the moment you arrive. At our request they kindly took the time to show us around & inform us about the beautiful Bay of Islands and helped us to find the Dolphins!!. Our time with William in Tapeka in the Bay of Islands represents what New Zealand is about and at its very best in terms of excitment, relaxation and hospitality. In the words of Arnold "We'll b back!!". Thank you William and Douglas from Richard, Katherine, Alex and Clara xx

Thanks for a great holiday too! The dolphins have been back in the same place for the past two days. You know where! Don't tell too many people, let's not overcrowd our paradise!!!!
