You couldn’t ask for a more beautiful setting to sit and relax enjoying the Bay of Islands! The apartment is very well stocked and carefully thought through! You are in for a real treat if you stay here.
A group of 5- 3 adults and 2 children stayed here for 3 nights, but we wished it had been longer. It was a great base to explore the Bay of Islands. The property is fantastic- very clean and everything you could possibly need upon arrival. A lovely bottle of Marlborough wine in the fridge was a nice touch. It is a 2min walk to a General store allowing us to stock up on the essentials. The Opua Cruising club is also a short walk away and has a nice little bistro and bar open for lunch and dinner. We enjoyed fishing off the terrace and catching the car ferry to Russell. Waitangi is a 10 minute drive away- the evening Hangi and Cultural Concert was fantastic. Can't wait to have an opportunity to go back.
We spent a few days here around New Year's Eve 2017 and absolutely loved it! We stayed at The Landing, which is very spacious, very well-appointed, complete with everything we needed, clean and modern. And the huge terrace over the water was amazing for its views and for fishing. We could live here!
This was a very enjoyable stay. We were surprised to see a 24 hr toilet block adjacent but we never heard anything. We are light sleepers so it was extremely quiet at night with the exception of the first ferry arriving at 6:50 every morning. No sleep ins! However it was a very interesting site seeing the ferries come and go through the day and of course so convenient when you wanted to hop over to Russell. General store staffed by friendly people and a 30second walk away. Stocked with all he essentials and good coffee. Accomm located only a short drive from the main town of Pahia where great dining choices abound. Accomm had great facilities and wonderful views. Recommended providing you dont mind the early morning ferry “alarm clock”!
I stayed at The Landing while I was in the area recently, I loved for 'connected' the Boathouse is the the area. The local car-ferry comes and goes from the boat ramp adjacent to the building, which I thought gave the place great atmosphere. Super-comfortable beds in a really well appointed apartment. I'd love to stay there again.
