One queen bed apartment with fully fitted kitchenette and lounge area that faces the Pacific Ocean, with spectacular views and access to beach.
This apartment has a double door between the Pohutukawa Apartment that gives the option for two couples to share or to bring the children as the bed in Pohutukawa will split into 2 singles by request. SKY TV is accessible including movie and sports channels. There is a BBQ area and spa pool to use with a world class picturesque view.
We’re located at Tapeka Point at the entrance to the world famous Bay of Islands. Tapeka Point is approximately a 3 hour drive from Auckland and just two kilometers form the historic village of Russell. Before the Europeans settled in New Zealand the area was a Maori Pa (fortification) but these days we call it home and invite you to stay at our beautiful beachfront property. Tapeka boasts two beaches ideal for fishing, swimming and other water sports It has a boat ramp for launching boats. Watch passing Orcha whales if you are lucky or swim with the wild Dolphins off the beach. Nearby is Kauri Cliffs, Waitangi, Kerikeri and other world class golf courses. Visit the famous “Hole in the Rock” at Cape Brett, a popular way to view the Islands of the Bay, take a day sail or sit back, relax and watch the endless parade of boats passing by. There’s also an abundance of great walking tracks in the area and it’s the perfect base from which to explore Northland. Enjoy the use of our kayaks or relax and watch the sun go down from the spa. If you need to collected from Russell give us a call. This is a free service.
  • Smart space walking distance to Russell. We saw a kiwi on Jack’s walkway coming home at night. Need torch. Access to kayaks on beach was fun. Clean, well laid out and comfortable.

  • The Apartment was stylish and comfortable and more spacious than we expected. There is a beautiful cove just down the stairs, but Dave also directed us to a great swimming beach just 5 minute walk away. We drove to the restaurants in town; it’s not too far but the road is narrow and steep for walking. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    Maril2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • I cannot recommend this place enough! We stayed at Dave and Anitas for just two nights on our big tour of New Zealand. The location of the apartment was perfect, after a long drive, it felt quiet and idyllic but not far from the town at all for restaurant access. We spent our time kayaking around the bay where we saw dolphins! And relaxing and swimming in the cove which was 10 seconds from the apartment. It was like our own private beach! We wanted to ditch the car for a day so we walked into Russell through the bush which took around 30 mins, an enjoyable walk with great views, a bit hilly. Everything we needed was provided for and we felt that the hosts went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. It was the perfect start to our adventure!

    Betsy2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment was super clean and new. Great shower and view from spa is lovely. Our hosts were very kind and helpful.

    My place is on a hill and has great views of Te Haumi bay beach and a peek across the sea to Opua. Approximately 15mins walk downhill to the main town centre of Paihia and Maritime building for the famous Hole in the Rock cruise and Dolphin Boat tours. You’ll love my place because it’s just off the main road and is quiet. The studio is extra large with open spaces, comfy beds and the cosiness. Suitable for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, and families (with kids).
    The studio apartment has a seperate bathroom with a shower, own laundry, large kitchenette with big fridge freezer & compact benchtop oven with two elements for cooking. There is a queen bed and king bed, TV with sky, lounge suite, reading and dining area. It is bigger than your average size studio apartment with lots of space.
    Quiet but safe neighbourhood. Short walk to town and beach.
  • 👌 Perfect

    Catherine2020-03-05T00:00:00Z

    Better than beachfront - this is ON the beach! Modernized classic Kiwi beach house. Private location with stunning views. Furnished to a high standard with linen and cleaning included. Listen to the waves, swim, kayak, watch the boats, dine, relax, romance and rejuvenate. Close to historic Russell and the many Bay of Islands attractions
    Tapeka Beach Bach is nestled just above the sand and lapping waves. This iconic Kiwi beach house has a fresh contemporary decor furnished and equipped to a high standard. This is the perfect nest to escape, unwind and rejuvenate. Enjoy the unique vistas and attractions only the Bay of Islands can offer. Experience birdlife, dolphins frolicking and superb year round sunsets. You may even see a pod of passing Orca whales. Wander onto the beach hand in hand, explore secluded bays in a kayak – or just sit back and be entertained by the constant procession of passing boats. Situated at Tapeka Point, just two minutes from historic Russell village with ferries, boat trips, attractions, historic places, shops and restaurants. The perfect base to explore the rest of the Northland region. This cozy one bedroom beach house has a comfortable new queen bed with stunning sea views and the sound of the waves. If you really must share, the living room has an ottoman that converts to a single bed. Breathtaking unobstructed 270 degree views extend out into the Bay. There is no road between you and beach, no traffic noise and no tourists walking by. Relax on the covered surround verandah or outside in the sun. Sit back outside in deck chairs, bean bags, Cape Cod chairs or lie back on a sun lounger. 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 when you return. Lots of walking tracks including Kiwi habitats. Row boat, double and single Kayaks to explore the coastline and secluded bays. Tapeka Beach Bach has a fully equipped kitchen if you wish to self-cater, collect a take out or use the BBQ grill. Better still enjoy a romantic meal on the Russell waterfront, just two minutes away. Separate bathroom with shower. Facilities include Air Conditioning / Heat Pump, Nespresso machine, TV, DVD, Bluetooth sound system, free WiFi, washing machine and dryer. Quality linen, towels and beach towels included. Try your luck fishing from the beach, dinghy or nearby rocks. Boat launching ramp 100m away. This is not an apartment, cabin or basement flat. You will enjoy exclusive use of this self contained beachfront property in privacy with no shared facilities or on site owners. If you can only stay one night please ask. Need more space? Combine with “Bay of Islands Beachfront - Tapeka del Mar” next door also on the beach. This larger 4 bedroom beach house can accommodate up to 13 guests. The location, position, views and nearby attractions are unequalled, but don't take our word for it - please read the reviews and book your escape now!
    Tapeka is a quiet small community of permanent residents and holiday homes - yet close to services and attractions. This historic peninsular has beaches either side and a walking track to the lookout at the top of the point. There is no through road or traffic noise. The area is very safe with friendly neighbours. Just two minutes over the hill is historic Russell village with shops, Island boat trips, ferry to Paihia, restaurants and historic places
  • A truly unique piece of NZ paradise. This stay sums up everything a perfect kiwi summer holiday brings to mind. The location is perfect regardless of the weather. The deck offers shelter views across the bay. There is alway something new to look at from the changing light to boats to wild life. We had wekas strolling around the deck, a wild ginuea pig came to visit while we watched a large stingay swimming in the shallows from the deck chairs. The beach is a 30 second stroll, with kayaks and a dingy if you want to venture further. A great walk up to Tapeka pt starts just meters up the Rd. Clive is very quick to respond to any communication. The Bach is appointed with every convenience while still feeling relaxed and authentic. A highly recommended stay. Thanks Clive!

    Dion2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great beach house perfect location. Clean and very comfortable. Will return.

    Pete And Sandra2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Quintessentially NZ Paradise. From basking in the morning light to watching the sun set across the water, Tapeka Bach provides the most perfect spot to take it all in. Just over the hill from the main street of Russell and yet like a tucked away local secret, the Bach is positioned in a prime position of The Bay, providing ease to soak in all the natural beauty of the direct surroundings and it's thriving local bird life. Many moments were spent watching my family laugh and swim while I relaxed on the deck, wine in one hand, book in the other. Even visiting family managed to moor right at the front. It could not have been better. Clive, the host was wonderful and friendly and always accomodating with information, making things easy and seamless. The perfect holiday. THANK YOU. What a spot! We will return.

    Dean2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great views, veranda all around the house, outdoor shower, plenty of spots to sit and enjoy the day just watching the sea, birds & people. Beach a walk down the grassed slop and location to Russell close by. Most of all quiet 🤫

    Roslyn2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • A more than classic kiwi Bach in arguably one of the best locations in the country. Would recommend to all.

The hosts were very accommodating and easy to communicate with, and left an abundance of suggested activities to do in the area. Views are wonderful. We would definitely recommend a stay here when passing this way.

  • This is a beautiful property with stunning views from the balcony. The hosts were there to help but very respectful of our privacy which was important to us. The yummy biscotti was a nice touch. You definitely need to be in a car to stay at this property as the nearest restaurants and cafes are not exactly walkable. However with a car this place is very conveniently located for paihia as well as Russell. Would highly recommend this property.

    Tea Tree Cottage is half way between Paihia and Opua with access to both via the coastal track . It is the perfect base for a walking holiday with many walks in close proximity. You’ll love the cottage as it is quiet and has native bush between it and the water. The place is perfectly set up for couple, twin share or those with a new family (portacot available on request). Accessibility: Please note the cottage is situated down a flight of garden stairs.
    The cottage has north and west facing french doors which make the most of the sunshine. You have a deck overlooking native bush and water, and a large claw footed bath to relax in. The cottage has kauri floors, bench and detailing throughout.
    Pt Veronica is tucked away at the end of a short peninsula. It is very private with expansive views out over the Bay of Islands. There is a lot of regenerating native bush, birds and walking on offer.
  • Great place to stay! Great views of the bay with access to the observation deck, Opua and Paihia. (The latter, however, easier to reach by car) the property is in perfect condition, sparkling clean and well equipped! Our stay was just great. There are many offers around the Bay and Russel. We particularly liked the sailing tour! The restaurants and shopping in Paihia are excellent.

    Heiko Alexander2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Such a cute space, loved the bathroom decor! Easy to come and go as we pleased and the hosts respected our privacy. So nice to get away to a nice quiet relaxing spot with a beautiful view from the deck, exactly what we needed before heading back to the busy city

    Monique2020-02-23T00:00:00Z

    Melissa2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • The most gorgeous little cottage to stay in! Small but beautiful inside and out, perfect for a nature loving couple. Cottage is right next to host house so not overly private especially the deck area however we loved our stay here, loved the claw foot bath, the view from the bed and having dinner out on the deck. Location is great, so easy to get to Paihia and Russell. Thanks to Charles for the tips of what beaches to visit during our stay. They were stunning.

    Zoe2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • The photos don’t do this place justice. It’s beautifully located, presented and maintained. Robyn is keen to help and sets out to make sure your stay is comfortable. Probably the most amazing bed we’ve ever had in an Air BnB. There are plenty of small touches that make this place feel homely. It’s central to different walks around the bays and an easy drive to larger towns. Or you could pass your holiday just chilling out on the lovely Bush surrounded verandah. Thanks for a wonderful few nights

    Emily2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place with great hosts. We were given a basket of toys for our toddler to play with and he was well entertained for the duration of our stay.

    This lovely spacious apartment is only 3 kms drive from Paihia and a 15 minute walk to the Haruru Falls. It includes a living area, and separate bedroom which can sleep 3 people. It also has a separate bathroom and kitchen. 5 minutes away in Paihia are a variety of cruises, tours, golf course, kayaking etc so come and enjoy our outdoor playground. There is a lovely little courtyard outside the lounge door for you to relax with a wine The Bay of Islands is a beautiful area so come and enjoy
    Relaxing atmosphere and gardens to enjoy if you wish. Enjoy the courtyard and have a bbq and wine on a lovely summers night. As well as being close to many tourist attractions there is now a new footpath that links Paihia with Haruru Falls so you can take the walk to Paihia or walk through the bush. There are many lovely walking tracks in Paihia and Opua also if you enjoy walking.
    We are a small suburb 3 km out of Paihia, with a dairy and a takeaway shop for your convenience. You will hear the waterfalls in the background and especially at night when all is still. We also have quite a bit of bird life around our area. You may see wood pigeons, tui, fantails, ducks, herons....... the river to the waterfall is close. If you walk the bush track from Haruru Falls to Waitangi you will see many birds along the river. Ask us about these things and we are more than willing to help.
  • A lovely little spot just outside of Paihia. Everything you could ever need in a beautiful little spot. Dianne was very helpful and excellent host and would 100% recommend her place if you are planning a trip to the Bay of Islands!

  • It was a pleasure meeting such a lovely lady and staying at our own little apartment, Dianne was so helpful and made us feel like we friends. We enjoyed a drink and fish and chips with her on her deck and recommend her place to all. Thanks for making our stay so special x

    Pamela2019-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • Dianne has a lovely air bnb. I couldn't recommend her more! Thank you so much Dianne for your hospitality. :)

    Kiá2019-11-21T00:00:00Z
  • Clean place. Dianne is a very lovely and friendly host!

    George2019-11-14T00:00:00Z
  • Dianne's place is great, good spacious layout with great facilities. Also an awesome location, not far from the town and Countdown store if you happen to be self catering as we were. The only minor drawback is that Dianne doesn't have a WiFi which was a shame as we had to hammer our travel SIM for two days. If Internet is not an issue I couldn't recommend it highly enough.

    Roger2019-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • Dianne was really hospitable and welcoming! Would definitely recommend her place for a quiet retreat yet so near the city center and other attractions!

    Mitz2019-11-05T00:00:00Z

    Haruru, Northland, New Zealand

    Sun drenched, intimate nook, with views of the bay at Russell. We offer a one bedroom, self contained unit. We are centrally located and only eight minutes walk from both the waterfront in Russell and the beautiful, golden sands of Long Beach.
    Self contained unit attached to main house.
    Russell is an historic township formed by the whaling trade in the 1800's. The general atmosphere is very relaxed. The main activities for the area are vineyard tours, relaxing on the beaches, dining out, swimming, strolling, chilling, tramping, snorkelling, fishing, scuba diving, going to the pub or just doing nothing at all. The local establishments often have various forms of entertainment on with excellent live music all day most weekends. In addition there are various festivals throughout the year such as the Birdman, the Jazz Festival and the Country and Western Music Festival.
  • What I liked best about this place was the location. The township of Russell was just a short stroll down one side of the hill and Oneroa Beach was just a short stroll down the other. Everything was clean and comfortable about this place. There is a microwave, barbecue and a one element electric plug in cooktop here, but there is no actual oven and stove, so keep that in mind for your cooking plans. Well worth the stay!

    Elizabeth2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely little flat, nicely finished inside, with great view of the bay and an easy walk to both town and the beach.

  • Perfect place to stay! Easy to find and super easy to check in. The place was clean and functional, with lovely views of the harbour. Close access to the township of Russell. Book now - well worth it!!

    Ollie2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely amazing place. Great facilities and location - only a 5-10 minute walk into Russell and 5-10 minute walk to a beautiful beach in the opposite direction. Very stylish accommodation with everything you could possibly need. Highly recommended!

    Laura2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Very well positioned, less than a 10 minute walk to Long Beach one way and Russell the other way. Great view out to the Bay of islands. A comfortable self contained apartment with very helpful hosts. We had a boat trip booked for us within minutes of arriving!

    Julie2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • This is a brilliant place to stay. Everything within walking distance plus superb ferry / boat trips on the doorstep. Superbly equipped, really comfy bed and great shower. Fantastic hosts too, who helped us have a wonderful week and we didn’t use our car once. Thanks Gilda and Ian for a great stay.

    Russell, Northland, New Zealand

    This is a self catering apartment with a spacious open plan living area, a separate bedroom and bathroom. Guests have their own patio with sea views across to Russell and the Opua inlet. Guests have use of a separate entrance to the apartment from their carport. While we are only 3.2 km from the centre of Paihia, it is a hilly walk. There is a lot to see and do here so make sure your stay isn't too short to experience what is available.
    You can wake up to the gentle sounds of the local Tui (birds) and look out across the bay to see what the weather has to offer. We are in a quiet suburban area looking out over the water to Russell. You could walk down the hill to the beach and coastal walkway that runs from Paihia to Opua around the coast and across the mangrove boardwalk. Paihia township is only a 5 minute drive away but can be a pleasant walk along the coastal roadway. There is a lot to do in Paihia with boat trips, fishing trips and bush walks/ biking all available. A short ferry trip from the town wharf will get you to historic Russell or a pleasant walk can get you to the Treaty grounds and meeting house at Waitangi.
    We are in a semi-rural residential neighborhood that has many native birds living in the trees around about.
  • Iain and Janet’s place was clean and well equipped with lots of utensils allowing us to cook during our stay. The view from the accommodation was beautiful and it was situated a short but hilly drive from the centre of town. Iain and Janet has great communication and were happy to assist us when needed.

    Carey2020-02-12T00:00:00Z

Lots to do and see in the area from a ferry ride over to historic Russel, visiting the Waitangy treaty grounds to exploring the many lovely bays....we enjoyed our 4 night break and could quite easily have found enoughy to do to warrant a lo ger stay...Iain and Janet are nice friendly hosts

    In Tapeka Point with a short stroll to swimming beach and just a 5 minute drive to Russell with all its cafes restaurants and old world charm. Or stay at home and utilize the well appointed kitchen and bbq area. Choose to sit on the deck and watch the boats go by or enjoy the bush walks and local attractions nearby. We have a portable crib so families with babies are very welcome.
  • Lovely unit near the beach with a great view! The rooms are tidy and spacious. Sharon is a great host, the family went to the restaurant she recommended and had an amazing dining experience.

    Machteld2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • This home is elegantly appointed and very clean. Hotel style sheets and towels which felt very elegant. Huge shower with excellent water pressure. The views from this unit are really beautiful. It was an ideal set up for us as a couple traveling with our adult daughter and her friend. It’s a bit of a walk to the downtown area, but we prefer the quietness and the lovely view. Also, there were some excellent walks nearby that were not to be missed. We particularly enjoyed the hike down to the beach at low tide, hiking to the sacred hilltop which is about a 15 minute hike from the rental. Also, there’s a cool hike through the hills to the town that has just been created. As stated in the description this home is at the top of a very, very steep driveway. Don’t be afraid, we got the hang of it really quickly. Lastly, the owners live on site which is something I always appreciate. Pride of ownership is always a plus!

    Looking for somewhere special where you can chillout, kick back, and experience the magic of the Bay of Islands? Affectionately called “The Woo Hoo” cottage, my fully self-contained studio is for you. The stunning view over the Bay and across to Russell takes your breathe away. Instantly, you feel a sense of peace and a positive vibration envelops you, welcoming you to your own magical world. This is a special place for special people, come and experience the magic -stay more than DAY!
    The view is outstanding, across the Bay to Russell. The seascape is ever changing as is the lighting. Watch yachts and cruisers come and go, cutting pathways through the blueness of the sea. It can be difficult to drag yourself away from such an amazing sight. For those musically inclined, there is a guitar (sort of kiwi tradition really). Why not immerse all of your senses. Take a walk in the garden, stop and smell the roses, find a meditation spot, or pick yourself some fresh herbs to make a cup of tea (mint is a favorite). Handpick some fruit or maybe pluck some fresh lettuce leaves, you never know what might be in season. The studio is magical and you will find yourself totally absorbed in its peacefulness and ambiance. The kitchenette has everything you need to cook a meal. There is also a colouring book and pencils for those wanting to do some mind therapy. Please note it is suitable for a single person only. If there is more than one of you, check out my double unit www.airbnb.co.nz/rooms/5230973
    My neighborhood is very peaceful. My street is a cul de sac and generally the only traffic that comes down the road are locals or people who are lost. Just down the bottom of the hill by the Te Haumi Bridge is a walking track to Opua. It meanders through bush and along the beaches and is truly beautiful. Its about an 1.5 hours walk one way.
  • Wonderful place with a great host! Jans place is very clean and exactly as pictured. Jan herself is a gracious host and easy to communicate with. You won't regret staying here.

    Maja2020-03-03T00:00:00Z

See the Milky Way in the middle of the night, or wake up early to the sunrise over the bush, or stay snuggled up in the comfortable beds in spacious bedrooms. Your choice!

  • Stayed a night. Very good location doe Whangamumu track and went to see the whaling station.

    Angela2020-02-20T00:00:00Z

    Georg2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • This is one of the most extraordinary Airbnb experiences I've ever had! Not only was the place incredibly beautiful and peaceful, right next to the beach surrounded by old trees. I also was lucky to learn a lot about Maori culture, to join Bob on his water taxi trips for free and to go out for fishing one night. If you are interested in an insight into Maori family life and happy to spontaneously jump on the boat, when Bob gets a call for a taxi ride, I highly recommend to stay at this place!               

    Tanja2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Such an awesome place to stay. Would definitely recommend for a nice couple get away weekend. Awesome hospitality, great rooms and such a nice place to relax.

    Caylah2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Louise and Bob are fantastic. They involved us with their workshops (weaving, balm making, bread making) and water taxi rides, fishing and teaching us about their culture and local insights. They live in the perfect magical location and we had a great stay. The amenities are shared and have everything you require and are very clean. Bed was super comfortable and there’s a nice cool breeze at night. You can use the kayaks and hire the SUP’s and go on guided JetSki rides. We never got time to do this as we were out and about with Bob sightseeing and Brian fishing at night!!!! In the morning, walk a short stroll to the coffee caravan! Opens at 10am The Bay out the front of the house is perfect for kids and it’s only a short distance, 300m by car (or walk) then up stairs to sandy Oke bay which is also beautiful.

    Jane 2020-02-06T00:00:00Z

    Will2020-01-27T00:00:00Z

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay which included kayaking on the clear blue water, staring up at more stars than I've ever seen in my life, waking up to a beautiful view and taking a water taxi tour around the Bay of Islands (courtesy of Louise and Bob). Highly recommended.

    A delightful beach studio unit with shabby chic decor, full kitchen and separate bathroom. Across the road from world famous rock fishing and a lovely shingle beach. Literally 2 minutes walk from a sandy swimming beach and a grassy picnic area with a boat ramp as well.
    This is a fastidiously clean unit with kitchen allowing you to self cater. It has a super king bed that has the option to be split into 2 singles if guests prefer. We are a friendly fun loving couple and live upstairs. We have a great knowledge of the area and can help you with local information and activities, maybe even join us for a pre-dinner drink.
    Welcome to Tapeka View! We’re located at Tapeka Point at the entrance to the world famous Bay of Islands. Tapeka Point is approximately a 3 hour drive from Auckland and just two kilometers form the historic village of Russell. Before the Europeans settled in New Zealand the area was a Maori Pa (fortification) but these days we call it home and invite you to stay at our beautiful beachview property. Tapeka boasts two beaches ideal for fishing, swimming and other water sports It has a boat ramp for launching boats. Watch passing Orcha whales if you are lucky or swim with the wild Dolphins off the beach. Nearby is Kauri Cliffs, Waitangi, Kerikeri and other world class golf courses. Visit the famous “Hole in the Rock” at Cape Brett, a popular way to view the Islands of the Bay, take a day sail or sit back, relax and watch the endless parade of boats passing by. There’s also an abundance of great walking tracks in the area and it’s the perfect base from which to explore Northland.

There are some really interesting walks nearby, including Tapeka Track and Jim's Track, which leads on to Flagstaff Hill and Russell. We spotted rare weka birds and there's a good chance of seeing kiwi as well.

    Sunny north facing apartment in the Paihia valley 2 minutes walk to town. Designed as the owner's accommodation and now a luxury holiday pad. The apartment has one bedroom. The cabin is detached and comes complete with its own toilet, washbasin with hot water. There is a pullout couch in the main apartment Re Covid 19. We have a 5-star cleanliness review. All surfaces are disinfected and then polished with meths as an extra precaution. Enquire about longer periods for a special rate.
    This space is very private from the accommodation above. There is car parking for one car (two stacked or one and a boat) and the school car park directly over the road is available on weekends and holidays. The apartment comes with a spa bath and quality toiletries are included in both toilets. The second bedroom is a detached cabin next to the car park. There is a north-facing patio with seating for four plus a commercial BBQ with s/s hot plate. There is a washing machine and shared drier as well as a washing line. I will state again. The cabin is on a lower flat area where your car is parked. It would be 10m apart but is a 20m walk from the cabin up to the elevated apartment.
    We are located close to the main shopping centre. The lively Paihia beach and Kings rd bars are also an easy walk but far enough away to not be of a disturbance. Our setting looks out to the park and town beyond with a glimpse of the Bay of Islands.
  • A great place to stay right next to downtown and the wharf

  • Lovely apartment in an awesome location.

    Sue2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • This is a nice apartment in a really good location with a parking space on the property. I would definitely stay here again. My husband and I stayed in the downstairs room which has its own half bath across a small hallway (the hallway is not private, open to the parking area - not ideal but all right for a night or two). The other couple stayed upstairs, which has a stylish, modern lounge opening to a large, comfortable kitchen. Their bathroom with separate tub and shower was spacious and modern, one of the nicest I have seen in any airbnb. The host provided fans which helped with the heat.

    Nora2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely apartment, with a really nice bathroom. The outhouse is not as modern/stylish as the main apartment but this was expected. The outhouse toilet was very clean and also modern like the apartment bathroom. Would definitely recommend and stay here again

    Jennifer2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Friends of ours stayed here up from Auckland for our wedding. It was great for the couple and their parents and to be close to us to come and hand out in Roberts other house.

    Jess2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place, great location

    Tim2020-01-27T00:00:00Z

    Vallen2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Great location close to the main street and beach. We enjoyed our stay, everything was in order and ready for us on arrival. Robert responded quickly on last minute request. We used the outside room and sleeper couch. All nice, tidy and comfortable.

    The photos do not do the location justice. Read the reviews and time and time again, our guests talk about how stunning the views are. If you think the photos look great, you should see the views in real life!
    Relax and recharge in this coastal property with stunning views over the popular East Coast of NZ. The quiet and relatively remote location will appeal to people who want to get away from their busy lifestyles and enjoy the peace this place offers. This is the ideal space to relax and unwind. The house is set up on a hill overlooking the beautiful East Coast of Northland. The house is 250sqm with 3 double bedrooms with 1 x King bed (top of the range Sealy Posturepedic bed) and 2 x Queen beds. The upstairs consists of a master bedroom with an ensuite, open plan kitchen/living room and garage. The downstairs consists of 2 x bedrooms, a kitchen, lounge and bathroom with bath and shower. The laundry is in the garage. There is also a queen sized slat bed sofa bed available upstairs. Both levels have large decks to enjoy the views and sun. Double glazed windows throughout for warmth and quiet. Guests have access to a pizza oven, 2 x gas BBQs, kayaks, gym equipment including a spin cycle, free weights/bench, Pilates reformer and also 2 mountain bikes. There is an outside shower which you can use before hopping into the Hotsprings ‘Aria’ Spa Pool (Hot Tub). There are also 'Coast' bean bags (outdoor furniture) that can be used as well as a 6 seater outdoor table and chair set. Sky TV (cable TV) is provided with movie and sports package are added. There is also Apple TV and Netflix. Someone will be there to let you in and make sure everything is okay for you. Someone will also help lock up the place upon your departure. Neighbours are few and far between. The area is extremely quiet and traffic volume is very low. There are a number of locations nearby to launch a boat. There are some great fishing spots on and off the water. Elliots Bay (5-10 walk) hosts surfing competitions and is a popular surf beach for locals. Taupiri Bay (5 min walk) is one of the safest swim beaches in the North. Little Taupiri Bay (across the road) is your own private little bay (although the locals sometimes enjoy it as well). We regularly see dolphins, Humpback Whales and Orca's from the deck of our house! The wireless internet is relatively quick and very reliable. It is fast enough to easily stream videos, download/upload large files, send/receive emails, (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) etc. **The house is fully alarmed and there is 'off site' monitoring via both internal (both living areas and garage) and external cameras**. Guests are welcome to cover the internal cameras when staying but please uncover upon check out for security reasons. Cellphone reception depends on your provider (some have better reception than others with Vodafone having a strong signal at the property) There is a landline provided with free local calls.
    There are three bays within a 10 minute walk. Little Taupiri Bay is just across the road and Taupiri Bay, considered on of the safest beaches to swim in the North, is just a 5 minute walk down the road. Elliot’s Bay is about a 10 minute walk around the corner.
  • Beautiful, immaculate, modern ‘eagle’s nest’ equipped with anything and everything you could need. If the pictures look good to you, well the reality is even better. Located at probably the most picturesque part of that section of the coast. Simply lovely.

    Kevin2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • This place is stunning, even better than pictures. Will be back for sure

    Jasmine2020-02-02T00:00:00Z

    Mitchell2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Such a magical home, the pictures don’t do it justice. Very clean and very comfortable beds - thank you so much!

    Justine2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Little Taupiri is a slice of paradise! Photos don’t do it justice. The house and views are AMAZING! The view from the deck is breathtaking. We spent a relaxing week exploring the area, swimming at the beaches, enjoying the peace and quiet and pristine wilderness and sounds of nature. It’s a week that we will always treasure.

    Sarah2019-12-14T00:00:00Z
  • Spectacular views. Great stay

    Matthew2019-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • The stay in Little Taupiri was absolutely breathtaking. It was one of the most beautiful places I had ever been. Thank you Bill and Annette for sharing your wonderful and luxury holiday home with us!!! The photos can’t even describe the view from the house over the ocean!

    Andrea2019-12-05T00:00:00Z
  • What a truly amazing slice of paradise - we did not want to leave! The entire space was incredible and full of thoughtful touches. We loved having nespresso on the deck over looking the ocean... it was a stay we will never forget!

    Sunny north facing self contained studio unit in central Paihia with own deck area, only 2 minutes walk to waters edge and 4 minute walk to town centre, ferry wharf, shops & cafes/restaurants.
  • We picked this property for the last 5 days of our month long trip around NewZealand as we wanted somewhere we could relax after all the driving. We weren’t disappointed as it’s in a great location for all the amenities in Paihia. Both Reid & Ann made us most welcome and were always available for tips and advice on places to visit and things to do. We highly recommend this comfortable and well equipped accommodation with a spacious balcony making it perfect for a relaxing stopover.

    David2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful location

    Samuel2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay in Paihia. The unit had everything we needed for a short stay and was in a great location, close to everything locally. The unit was clean and comfortable and our hosts were extremely helpful in making recommendations and gave us a warm welcome. We will certainly return in the future

    Hazel2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Large spacious rooms. The room on the end has a large balcony, which we really enjoyed. Also great location near the main street. Ann and Reid were both very friendly and helpful.

    Steve2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • A spacious apartment lovely and light with a covered balcony. Its easy to get to the shops and sea front and waitangi treaty grounds are just a 20 min walk along the front. Bed is large and comfy, plenty of hot water with some power. Ann provided helpful info about where to eat and what to visit. It felt very relaxed.

  • Lovely stay.

    Samantha2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • This accommodation is absolutely perfect. It is a full sized apartment with a washing machine and full kitchen! The balcony is an added bonus where you get a fantastic view of the water as you are nestled in the trees. We also had the luxury of having eastern rosella birds fly around the balcony. The location of this property is ideal, only a short 3 minute walk and you are at the shops, beach, harbor and restaurants. Rodger was friendly and gave great recommendations for the area. This was a great final stay for our trip to New Zealand and would definitely recommend and return.

    Elliot2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • The flat is very well equipped and Roger gave us good information on trips and shops/restaurants. 10 min walking to the beach, and a little more to Paihia center and the ferry to Russell.

    Rolf + Pia2020-02-17T00:00:00Z

  • Our favorite stay in Oceania! The hideout truly is a nice place to relax and while it is a guest house unit, it's very private and nice. We especially appreciated the small touches in this unit that went above most stays, the style, the space, the cloth hangers, maps/info on local hikes/tourist spots. The couch, kitchen table, and bed are all very comfortable while having everything spaced in a way where it feels open. There's also a nice balcony and a very spacious bathroom.

    Alvin2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved our time here, perfect place for a stay in the bay of islands!

    Marleen2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Their place was lovely, in a perfect location, spotlessly clean, and they made communication/check-in very easy! Would absolutely recommend staying here.

    Veronica2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Easy to find 10 minutes drive from Paihia which has shops tour operators ect . and easy parking. Very clean good facilities including wi fi , tv , coffee and teas . Nice touches such as milk left in fridge. Will stay again when we visit New Zealand again . Thanks

    David2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Nice quiet location - good access local towns and ferry

    Stephen2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • The place is really wonderful, super confortable, clean and quiet. It’s a spacious and beautiful nest in the trees. You will find everything you need (the aircon is a must). Perfect place to relax; you feel at home. Plus, they’re are very reactive and the communication is easy. Highly recommended.

    Hilda2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • The place is nice, clean and comfortable with all the amenities you need (including a kitchen if you're planning on cooking!). There was plenty of tea and coffee, also with a little jug of milk in the fridge. The hosts have also collected a range of maps and brochures for a lot of the tourist attractions around the Bay of Islands. Location is really convenient - around 7 minutes drive to Paihia, and very close to the car ferry to Russell. Heath and Maree were very communicative, and prompt to respond. We loved our stay here - we were really sad to leave!

    Zoe2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • A really lovely place to stay. Clean and well supplied with everything you'd need, private and secure in a pretty bush setting. Off road parking for the boat we had with us and Heath and Maree were helpful and relaxed

    Two Trees is a charming, self-contained unit complete with its own patio, garden access and a private entrance.Two Trees offer a unique combination of peaceful tranquillity in a central location.
  • Walter is a very kind host and the Apartment is well located for a trip to Paihia. We did appreciate the stay very much.

    Nina2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • It was a true pleasure to stay at Anna & Walter! The place is very cosy, nicely furnished, and well-equipped (coffee plunger, kettle, fridge, wine glasses, etc). Having your own door to enter and exit freely the studio is definitely one of the biggest advantages! The location is ideal: it is calm but still very close to all the activities in Paihia. We did not have to use the car at all! Also, we really appreciated the advice given on what were the best things to do around. That's definitely a place where we would return with great pleasure!

    Nathan2020-02-28T00:00:00Z

    Rosemary2020-02-26T00:00:00Z

    Claire2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed one night while we attended a wedding nearby and the space was perfect for our needs. We appreciated the separate entrance and privacy, the natural light in the bathroom for wedding preparations, the breakfast fixings in the fridge - and loved the mid-century dressers! Anna and Walter were friendly and helpful hosts, and the property is a short easy walk to the nearby shops and town centre, including great coffee and breakfast at El Cafe. Highly recommend!

    Sophie2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Beautifully clean and nicely appointed. Great breakfast with choice of 2 cereals, tea, coffee and toast. Nice big bottle of milk and cold water in fridge, much appreciated in the hot weather!

    Maxine2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Two Trees is well situated for exploring the beautiful Bay of Islands region and using the restaurants and shops in Paihia. The house is very clean and well presented. Walter and Anna are considerate and attentive hosts.

    Andrew2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay. Easy walk to central city & wharf. Secure, quiet & comfortable. Lots of space with extra sitting room. Very much worth it. Anna & Walter are very welcoming.

  • Definitely stay here!! Such a beautiful place, felt like paradise!

    Felicia2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Such a great place to stay and enjoy the Bay of Islands. The accomodation is immaculate, but what really can’t be beaten is the private access to a secluded beach, and if that isn’t enough, you can borrow a kayak and find an even more secluded spot! Dave was an awesome host who made us feel welcome, with some great tips on how to make the most of our short stay. Thanks Dave

    Tommy2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • Stunning views and walk to a nearly private beach. A quiet neighbourhood that is a quick drive to town. The room has all you need. The town of Russell is a gem - fabulous food, shops, a beautiful sea walkway.

    Barbara2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • This stay was well worth the cost - a fantastic host, location and set-up which all made for a fantastic end to our holiday.

    Jacob2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely stay in a stunning location by the sea with amazing hot tub! A car is necessary to go to restaurants in Russell but the drive is very short so not an issue.

    Clementine2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Dave was a wonderfully welcoming and thoughtful host. Room was well equipped,comfortable and in the most stunning location with kayaks! We will be returning!

    Scott2019-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • If you are scrolling through Airbnb looking for possible places to stay in the Bay of Islands stop right here! We had the most amazing couple of nights at Dave and Anita’s place the only tough thing was leaving! The studio is beautiful with more than you’ll ever need and the view from the garden is breathtaking. The hot tub is the perfect place for your breakfast cuppa watching out for dolphins in the bay. We spotted some on our first morning and shot down to the beach and into the (complimentary!) kayak to join the whole pod for half an hour of pure joy. Just us and around 15 dolphins with their young dipping and diving under and around us it was the most magical experience and has totally made our honeymoon and we were only on day 3! Even if you don’t see the dolphins it will still be one of the highlights of your trip staying here-the hospitality and friendliness of the hosts is second to none and the studio spotless and really well equipped.

  • Fiona and Barry really makes you feel at home in their lovely home. The view is brilliant and not far from local shops and restaurants - please go to Terra - we went twice in two days as it was that good! Fiona and Barry are great fun, love a good chat and have loads of tips regarding the area. I would highly recommend Fiona and Barry to all.

    Lynn2020-03-05T00:00:00Z

Fiona is indeed truly an angel and waited for us up late in our arrival, chatted with us on a variety of topics (from cricket to travel and painting!) and even offered to give us a lift to Waitangi (on Waitangi day, in such bad traffic) wow...! Thank you again for a wonderful stay

    This is a comfortable quiet downstairs two bedroom apartment. One queen room and one twin room, plus a cosy living area with heat pump. Own bathroom. Tea and coffee facilities. (Hosts live upstairs). The listed tariff is for 2 people. We are very close to 2 beaches - a rocky beach for fishing and a sandy beach for swimming. The historical village of Russell is less than 2 km back over the hill, where you will find the historic Duke of Marlborough Hotel plus other cafes, restaurants and shops.
    This is an apartment but without a kitchen. However there is tea and coffee making facility, microwave oven, and refrigerator. We provide provisions for breakfast. Share laundry with hosts. Own ground level patio with gas BBQ with side burner and outdoor dining setting. All linen provided.
    Tapeka Point is a magical place. With only three streets of houses it is very quiet and peaceful.
  • When we book a holiday, we always look for Superhosts. There should be another classification for Elise and Alistair! It goes without saying that the unit is clean, super-comfortable (the bed is as good as any 5star hotel we've ever stayed in) and the location is great, but they made us feel as though we were old friends, catching up again after years apart. We are looking forward to staying again.

    Pat2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely comfortable place. Great location a short 2 minute walk to a beautiful beach. Elise and Alistair were friendly and helpful. We loved the fully stocked fridge and nice surprise of wine, a special place to stay. Very close to all shops and restaurants. We will come again

    Staffan2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • We highly recommend the treehouse. The space was beautiful, super clean, and otherwise as described in the listing. Garth gave us some great local tips, including where we could take a drive and explore some of the surrounding coast as well. Can’t recommend it enough, really enjoyed our time there.

    Tim2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • Garth was a great host we arrived early and was allowed to check in earl, he helped us with our bags and gave us some good local knowledge about the area and places of interest to visit. There was all amenities there which was great and nothing was too much trouble for Garth. The was great right in town but far away enough from the hustle and bustle. Andthe view was spectaculer, with the tree house you feel almost secluded which was lovely

  • The Tree House is a lovely place to stay in Paihia. It is central but not in the crowded area. The view is amazing! Garth was really helpful when we arrived later than expected and can tell you a lot about Paihia and the surroundings.

    I live in te Haumi, a suburb of Paihia, the hub of any activities you might be interested in, in the Bay of Islands. Your space is private with your own bedroom, bathroom and small sitting room - you can use the kitchen if you want to cook. I work part-time locally, so you will have the place to yourselves most of the time. Paihia is 6 minutes drive away, Waitangi 10 mins. My house is on the edge of a forest, at the end of a cul-de-sac. It is quiet and away from the hubub.
    Off-street parking.
    I love my town and neighbourhood. Food: Greens. Cafe: Moby Deck. Walk: Haruru Falls. Water: Hole in the Rock tour. Museum: Pompallier Mission. Beach: Long Beach, Russell. Island: Urupukapuka.
  • Kathleen was very helpful. The accommodations were great - very clean, comfortable and quiet. Easy to recommend.

  • You could not have a better host and a lovely place to stay

    Hazel2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing location and great hospitality! comfy bed and very nice bathroom!

    Zander2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at Kathleen’s place! The location of the house is great, just a little off the main road, but in the quiet neighbourhood. The house was sparkling clean with amazing touches. There was even a private kitchenette for us with our own fridge. The room was very comfortable and the view from the balcony was unbelievable- shame that we stayed there only for one night. Kathleen is a great host and it was such a pleasure meeting her. We would highly recommend staying here.

    Maria2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Super nice Airbnb!! We loved the beautiful view and terrace of our room!! Highly recommend this Airbnb, much more nicer than in Paihia center.

    Lea2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful place to stay. Kathleen’s place is very stylish with a fantastic view. She also gave us great local tips! Would definitely stay here again.

    Natalia2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Kathleen is very nice person and her house is very well located on the hill with beautiful view from the terrace. The guest room has enough privacy and it is cozy and comfortable. Kathleen’s place is definitely good choice for staying in this area.

    Freshly renovated light bright and airy studio apartment with separate queen (new) bedroom. Kitchenette with fridge, sink, microwave, crockery and cutlery. Freeview tv with comfortable couch. Separate bathroom off the bedroom. Private, self contained and quiet situated at the rear of a Lodge and has its own entrance. Peppertree Lodge is 80m from the beachfront and only 700m to central Paihia township, close to nearby bars and restaurants.
    Quiet, clean and private. We are able to book discounted local tours from the Lodge office nearby.
    We are walking distance to central Paihia but near local bars and restaurants.
  • Great little unit, walking distance to restaurants and beach, the unit was clean and comfortable. Parking was on the street or across the road at a sister hotel.

    Leighann2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • The place works out great for us. Restaurants across the streets, walkable to many things, the space was clean.

  • Walking distance to the wharf and main parts of town. Comfortable bed.

    Katherine2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • This was such a great find! So close to the beach, excellent communication, and free kayaks!

    Kristen2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • This studio is actually a part of Peppertree lodge, but it's a bit separated from other rooms. As there are a lot of people at the lodge we were expecting it to be a bit noisy, but not at all. It was really quiet and the studio was nice. Had everything we needed. Parking is on the street on front and it's free. You will probably find a place. The location is great, only a few min. from the beach and about 10 to the center.

    Marija2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Good little affordable and clean room in a fab location as a base for seeing the Bay of Islands. Friendly helpful staff. The sofa bed was not very comfortable for an adult, fine for a child though.

    Located in Paroa Bay, a relaxing, peaceful and idyllic retreat close to historic Russell. Architecturally designed and built in 2013; luxurious, and modern, with wifi, skyTV, ipod docking station. Views over Paroa Bay vineyard to the Pacific Ocean, and within walking distance of the vineyard restaurant.
    Our three chalets are located on 10 acres and our nearest neighbours (we don't have very many) are approximately 800 metres away. Our chalets are light filled and optimise the stunning scenery of the area. Our decks are unique in that they are mostly covered and surrounded on three sides by glass. They offer protection from any adverse weather yet create the feeling of being outside.
    Close to Paroa Bay Vineyard, historic Russell, beaches and oyster farms
  • The chalet was exactly as described. Very clean, all the amenities and lots of nice touches.

    John2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic views and super relaxing space. All of the essentials you need, and great proximity to Sage restaurant and Peroa Vineyard. Claire and Richard were excellent hostsl, we would highly recommend them.

    Christopher2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Top spot - went for a wine tasting down the road - great location excellent host.

    Mal2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful and Clean place. Great host

    Scott2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • This place is fantastic and I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a peaceful retreat with magnificent views. The chalet had everything we could have wanted or needed for a short stay and the location was perfect for day trips around the local area.

    Zoe2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • This is a wonderful Airbnb, and my husband and I truly enjoyed our stay. The secluded setting with views of the nearby winery are great, and it’s convenient to Russell (charming town with restaurants and shops), beautiful beaches, and other fun spots within a 15-20 minute drive. The car ferry to get there is easy and cute. Would definitely return again!

    Jory2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Incredible location in one of the most magic spots in NZ, we loved staying at the purpose built chalets and exploring the surrounding area. The chalet was well equipped, clean and stylish. Claire and Richard were quick to communicate at all times. We’ll be back for sure. Great wine tasting opportunity next door at Paroa Bay Winery restaurant, Sage.

    Rebecca2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • The location was beautiful The house really clean with all comfort The owner was really kind to fix a problem in a very short time We had a great time and we strongly suggest this house Ro every one

    This is the perfect private holiday retreat. Set amongst the bush clad slopes of the Te Wahapu Peninsula, with no neighbors in view, adjacent to an expansive bush reserve with abundant bird life and only 7 km from the historic Russell Township. Kanuka Loft is a very quiet, peaceful space. A great place to come and do nothing, yet with all the Bay of Islands has to offer at hand.
    The Loft is above a large disused timber barn. Built with hand milled timber it has beautiful views and extensive decks for outdoor living. The open plan living and dining area is spacious and comfortable with a fully equipped kitchen. There are two bedrooms, one double with a queen bed and one twin with two singles. There is a heatpump for the winter, a laundry and ample parking.
    From Russell Township you are able to enjoy excellent restaurants and cafes, access the many boat trips leaving from the Russell wharf and enjoy the beaches and historic attractions. From Te Wahapu road you can join the Bay of Island Walkway. For cyclists both the Opua rail trail and the Waitangi bike park are nearby.
  • A great place. We can totally recommend. Stunning views from the deck. Peaceful & situated within beautiful grounds.

    Aaron2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Really lovely place, beautiful views, very private and close to Russell. The loft is super well equipped, well furnished, bbq and decks for morning and afternoon sun. Much better than expected, would loved to have stayed longer!

    Thomas2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • We had the most peaceful time in the Kanuka Loft with beautiful views of the water. We really appreciated the binder of local attractions put together by our hostess—we enjoyed dinner at the Gables, coffee at Pompallier Mission, and a boardwalk among the mangrove trees. Thank you Anna for a wonderful stay!

    Annette2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely private location. Fabulous view.

    Olivier And Sandra2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • I can not recommend this place enough. I really think Anna needs to get better pictures because from the moment you arrive to getting up to the balcony overlooking the Bay of Islands, your jaw is on the floor. It's a really special place and is just a few minutes' drive from Russell itself. Tranquil, beautiful and relaxing. It's worth every penny.

    Ciaran2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • It was absolutely perfect to explore the Bay of Islands. Secluded and private so transport is required but in the evenings we didn’t want to be anywhere else except on the beautiful balcony watching the sunset over the bay. Thank you Anna!

    Glenda2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • This place has a quite spectacular yet tranquil setting. All amenities were of a high standard and the lodge was very clean. Anna as host is very responsive to queries or general information. Very highly recommended and without hesitation or qualification.
