Stunning Views | Close to Village | Couples Retreat

With a 'front row, dress circle' location on the hill overlooking the Historic village of Russell Villa 6 is the perfect destination for your holiday.

Sit back on the deck and enjoy the ever changing panorama or take a short stroll and explore the charm and history of Russell, Kororareka.

Great decks and indoor outdoor living, that just cries out for the Barbeque to be used and the sunsets enjoyed over a glass of wine.

Main entry level includes kitchen, dining and lounge in open plan design, plus 1 twin bedroom and 1 double with french doors opening onto the side deck. Includes the bathroom on this level also.

The mezzanine floor accommodates the 3rd double bedroom. Parking for 1 car only - not suitable for boat parking.

Panoramic views over Russell village to Paihia yet still an easy walk to shops, restaurants and the wharf. Gas barbeque for those steaks or the fish you caught from either the charter boat or off the rocks at Tapeka.

Bathroom upgraded just this year and whilst compact is well appointed. Under cover parking right outside entrance.

Only two minutes by car or a ten minute walk to our best swimming beach. The villa faces west so you get to see our fantastic sunsets. Ideal for a couple or two couples.

Take a swim at Long Beach or enjoy a coffee and the water front atmosphere in the village and maybe take in a Bay of Islands water excursion or catch a fish.

  • Probably one of the best views one could hope for over Russell looking toward the Southwest. We spent most of our time with wine/cheese, BBQ on the deck overlooking the bay. It can be a bit hot at night so windows open and there is mozzie repellent provided. Also very quiet and handy short walk to town. We would stay hear again. Thank you for a great stay, it was really enjoyable.

  • “This place has the most spectacular view over Russell and the bay. The place has a retro look, but it was impeccably clean , with all the cooking amenities you will need to cook at home and enjoy dinner on the balcony with the view of the sunset. I would highly recommend this place!!”
