We are located right across the road from Russell's newest native bush walk, there's a lovely secluded swimming beach 5 minutes walk away, or you might want to launch one of the kayaks at our own waterfront (tidal). The kayaks can also be taken to Russell's finest beach, Long Beach, where they can be used as surfing kayaks. The kayaks have fishing rod holders if you feel like trying your luck for one of our many luscious snapper. We have a range of FREE sporting equipment for your use: tennis rackets, mountain bikes, the kayaks and row boat with fishing gear, croquet, trampoline, table tennis, basketball hoop, lots of indoor games plus SKY, wifi available. And of course, there's Russell. Swim with the dolphins, take a jet boat out to the Hole in the Rock or a leisurely sailing cruise around the islands, charter a boat for a day's snapper or marlin fishing, visit our historic sites and places, or just bring a book while the kids romp on the beach or paddle in our crystal clear waters. There's too many things to do here - I haven't even touched on the heaps of places you'll find to explore within an hour's radius of our home. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: n/aMore

Interaction with guests
While we live next door, 100 mtrs away, your privacy is paramount to us - if you need assistance we're here for you otherwise we let you just get on with it. The heated swimming pool is by our house but when you come over we shut our curtains if we're home (we are usually out on the golf course!)

About the neighbourhood
Russell is one of the premiere tourist destinations in New Zealand. It was the first capital of NZ often referred to as the 'Hell Hole of the Pacific' due to the fractious whaler community and one of the reasons the Treaty of Waitangi was sighed with the Maori in the first place. Its a lot calmer nowdays and often referred to as 'Romantic Russell' due to all the weddings, beautiful sunsets while dining on the waterfront, and so on. Its a fisherman's delight, stunning uncrowded beaches, prime kayaking waters and for all water activities, plus a myriad of gorgeous NZ forest walks - and so much more! Ours is one of the warmest winter climates in New Zealand - we rarely see frosts. We grow both bananas and pineapples at our house.
Getting around
While we are a small village there is a taxi available if you've had a glorious NZ wine at dinner. Everything is accessible by car on the peninsula - or bike for that matter and we offer you two for your stay. We have a museum, cafes and restaurants, hairdressers, shops, medical clinic, fishing charters, tour boats, swimming with the dolphins, and so on. At Waitangi 9 kms away, there is the wonderful, historic marae (Maori meeting house), museum, gigantic waka (early style oceangoing canoe), the Waitangi mountain bike park, beautiful golf course and so on.
