  • WELL BE BACK!!! We were staying as an extended family - grandparents, parents and two young children. The house was beautifully furnished, spacious and modern. It had a garden and lawn at the back through the french doors (which is more than most would be able to claim), and was not too close to the pool and BBQ area, so it was very quiet and private. The kitchen was probably the best equipped kitchen I've ever found and it was a pleasure preparing meals there! There is a big flat screen TV in the lounge, free wi-fi/internet access which was very handy keeping in touch with different contacts, a fire place (not needed in January...) and a lovely deck outside. The bedrooms were spacious, the beds very comfortable and the linen of a good quality. Bathrooms were modern and clean. Settler's Cottage lies within a complex of similar houses and is within walking distance of the village which has all the necessary amenities. The pool, spa and BBQ area is well maintained and modern. We will definitely be back, as this cottage meets all our extensive requirements!

  • Thank you for your message Lesley. We had a wonderful stay and were very impressed with the facilities and service. We will definitely be back next time we visit the beautiful Bay of Islands and will recommend the Settler's Cottage to others as a fantastic place to stay. Great facilities- heated pool and spa and BBQ area and lovely modern clean house with own private piece of backyard.

  • Excellent friendly service from Barry, thanks! One of the best places to stay in Russell! Pool and spa in complex, with use of BBQ etc. Short stroll to the waterfront. Plenty of parking. The cottage was in mint condition and super comfortable, highly recommended!
