A piece of paradise! and a lovely home to stay in. Made so welcome with surprise treats! Enjoyed swims at almost private beach, where stayed. My partner caught a big snappe,r off rocks, he was thrilled!, we ate it for dinner. Caught car ferry across to Russell, from Opua. Idyliic spot seeing boats go past on the harbour. We have booked again for later in year.

Beautiful spot - everything you need for a great holiday at your fingertips. Hosts are lovely, the house is a very well equipped home away from home. The beach is literally in front of you, so a lovely swim is only a few steps away - so convenient not having to go anywhere! With kayaks, life jackets and kids water toys all available for use, you can join in or watch the kids with your glass of wine in hand. A great selection of DVD's for the evenings or raining days (including kids DVDs) - we particularly enjoyed the 3D kids movies as a novelty! There is a nice coastal walk around to the Opua Marina (good cafe) and Paihia is only about 10 min drive away offering all the dining and entertainment options you could need, as well as tourist hub and booking centre for cruises/ferry to Russell etc. There was a market on the weekend we went as there was a cruise ship in town - a great vibe with live entertainment as well. Highly recommend - we will be back!

Beautifully relaxing tranquil setting to spend time with loved ones. Hats off to Albie and Heather for the warmth we felt while living there we felt like part of the family even if only for 5 days. Your family where all so very lovely and friendly towards us.
Albie, the star fisherman and Heather the best carrot cake baker ever. We loved it there and can't wait to stay again. We miss you all.

Albie, Heather (and Jackie) provided us with a warm, comfortable, inviting place to stay while we explored the Bay of Islands and Northland in general.

It was great to be able to relax in a "home away from home" at the end of a day's exploration, with all facilities available to cater to our needs.

Would definitely recommend this house for a group or family wanting to "settle in" and enjoy the life!

Hi Heather and Albie,

I have been meaning to drop you a line just to thank you for the wonderful holiday we had at your beach house. The location was perfect with the all activities of the bay as a back drop.
To be able to walk the foreshore into town was a real pleasure and the boys won’t forget kayaking to Paihia not to mention all the bushwalking trails nearby. The entire family enjoyed our time with you and your hospitality was overwhelming. It was plain to all of us Aussies that you have an enviable lifestyle.

Some of the highlights included kayaking, swimming, bushwalking and of course the homemade cake and the fresh snapper fillets.
You have a beautiful property and we really feel privileged to have shared a part of your place with you which is an experience we will not hesitate to recommend to family and friends.

So thank you for your hospitality and all the wonderful memories. I hope we can, one day, stay with you again.

We have just enjoyed a xmas holiday at Waters Edge with family and friends. I have stayed in many holiday homes and found waters edge to be a great home for rental. It has a large open lounge with tiles (much easier to keep clean!) and lovely big windows looking out to the waters edge! The huge deck was just right for a large group of us to enjoy a BBQ. Heather and Albie were superb hosts, there if you needed them or tucked away if you didnt. A lovely touch was the xmas cake that was awaiting us on our arrival. We loved our holiday at waters edge and certainly hope to make a return visit. thanks so much

Myself and four friends stayed for a week at Water's Edge. We needed a holiday, and we had the most memorable time. Heather and Albie were so welcoming and generous, with fresh fish and home made cake. Also advice on the best things to do locally. We walked for kilometres every day along the tracks with the most spectacular views. We ate some amazing food, drank lots of delicious NZ wine, laughed , talked and marvelled at the everchanging view from the verandah. (including a full moon!) It was peaceful and beautiful and I can't wait to come back. Thanks Heather and Albie. x

Waters Edge has to be Opua's best kept secret. This holiday home ticks all the boxes from fabulous to functional. The house layout is open plan, perfect for a mixed group, offering privacy and large communal spaces. Hosts Albi & Heather could not have been more informative or generous. Great value, and a unique experience. It doesn't get much better than this!

Five star setting with five star hospitality . We loved our stay at Waters edge, with the secluded beach a stones throw away, kayaks and boats at our disposal and the most wonderful hosts, Albie and Heather, that made our stay so comfortable. A fantastic central location that made it easy to visit Russel, Paihia and Keri Keri. Fantastic!

Our family had an awesome time at Water's Edge, and our hosts Heather, Albie and Ezra couldn't have been more welcoming and kind. We were able to moor our boat right in front of the house in Lemon's Bay, and enjoyed the use of the kayaks and dinghy. Beautiful views over a lovely harbour added to the experience! We would highly recommend this wonderful retreat for families.
