  • The house looks out to the beautiful islands in the bay and it is the most wonderful view. The house has one very large master bedroom, with ensuite (with a view) and walk-in wardrobe, the bed is firm, but comfortable and provided a good quality sleep. There are no curtains so you get to enjoy the stars if you do wake in the night. The open plan kitchen, dining and 2 living areas are well setup and comfortable. You can walk 5 minutes to Long Bay Beach and 15 minutes to Russell shops. Our dealings with Lesley were excellent, easy booking, check-in/arrival and departure. Would definitely use Lesley for any further booking in Russell."
