Wonderful place in the Bay of Islands.
Sue and Steve were great hosts.
We took the whole “packet”and went sailing with Steve on the Kingfisher, which we can also highly recommend.
Super room with an excellent view.

I can’t imagine a better place to stay in Russell. We were slightly removed from the crowds of tourists at the seaside but only a 5 minute walk to it. We were travelling with a couple from Australia so we had booked both of the exquisite rooms. We arrived in a torrential rain and immediately opened our balcony doors wide to enjoy the sight, sound, and smell of the rain on the gorgeous landscaping all around us. The large wrap around balcony was covered and sheltered from rain and sun with 3 different eating areas where fabulous breakfasts were served each morning, depending on the conditions. Divine. But inside the rooms is where you feel as though you are good friends or family visiting; crisp ironed bedding on wonderful mattresses, deep towels, comfortable seating, good wifi, great bathroom, and every amenity you need has been predicted and available for you.

We even had the pleasure of a day sailing on Kingfisher with Stephen. Both Sue and Stephen are extraordinary hosts.

I realize this is an over the top review from me, but it’s all merited. How lucky for you if there is availability on your dates! We just simply hated to have to move on.

What magnificent views from the balcony. Bed very comfortable. Large en suite. Great breakfast. Located in a beautiful part of the world. Quaint village in easy walking distance with lots of restaurants on the waterfront and nearby tourist attractions. Sue and Stephen were great hosts, there when we needed them but not in your way. No screens on the front doors so had to keep the doors closed at night. It was a little hot the first night despite the pedestal fan. The second night the weather had turned bad so no problems with the doors closed. Unfortunately because of the weather we weren’t able to go on their charter boat around the Bay of Islands but we will keep this for the next time we visit. I would highly recommend this place.

We stayed for two nights for a weekend getaway. Large well appointed room that was very clean and had a lovely view of the bush and ocean. Well positioned close to the centre of Russell. Steve was a welcoming host and the breakfast was a treat. Will definitely be back again to stay.

We stayed for six nights and could not recommend it highly enough. It's beautifully positioned with a scenic view and close to the main areas. Sue, Steve and Lulu looked after us very generously. Don't go anywhere else.
