  • Great communication and everything in place for when we arrived and also when we checked out. Enjoyed our stay, very spacious and had all the amenities you would want while on holiday. Location fantastic, easy walk to beach and 5 min drive to Russell township. Tapeka is a 'magical place' and we will definitely be back. Thank you for letting us enjoy your holiday home!

  • Perfect holiday home. Incredibly well kitted out, with everything we need and more. Great location by the beach and great for outdoors entertaining and BBQs on the deck. Loved it. The Team at Bay of Islands Holiday Homes have been extremely helpful. Couldn’t have done more to make us feel welcome and at home.
