Refurbished Villa | 100 Meters to Village | Family Holiday Home

Russell is a fabulous village to bring the family to, the house is located in the heart of the village and is so close to all amenities, churches, beaches, shops, restaurants, cafes... 

The cottage has 3 bedrooms and 2 modernised bathrooms, fully modernised kitchen, you can even serve family lunches/dinners via large opening french doors or the bi-fold windows from the kitchen, this area captures all the late sun - time to relax and enjoy. 

The garden is fully fenced and is a delight, take the time to sit under the magnolia tree with a favourite book and a glass of wine - my idea of a great relaxing moment.

Please note: For your comfort the house is pet free and is non-smoking property. 

No gathering/parties or unauthorized/additional persons staying at the property, this will breach the rental conditions and you may be asked to depart the property.

  • We enjoyed our stay - a stylish, clean and comfortable home with plenty of space (indoor and outdoor), a great location (just 2 minutes walk into town), comfortable beds, and everything we needed for a relaxing time in Russell. Thanks, everything was perfect with the property. We really enjoyed our stay.

  • Our stay at Kauri Cottage at Russell was a great success. We were met by Barry Joy who showed us the house and made us comfortable. It was all spotless and very well set up. We enjoyed our stay very much. Sincerely Elizabeth
