Stingray Retreat







From this holiday home it is possible to enjoy just being here, always something different happening in the Bay of Islands or down onto the rocks. This is a great home from which to explore Russell and the wider Bay of Islands with plenty of land or sea activities for everyone.

The scene changes with the light too and always possible to see dolphins and sometimes whales just a few hundred meters away.

The house has an airy feel about it, with all by-folding doors along the front of the main living area, open plan lounge dining modern kitchen, expansive deck out front, with Spa pool to one side, to further enjoy the views.

For the cooler nights use the open fire, and now to give the house even more comfort we have installed a heat pump. This works in reverse to cool you down, during the hot summer nights.

At one end of the house is the master bedroom with a queen bed and  en-suite bathroom and outdoor shower. At the other end is another king bedroom plus a twin bedroom, serviced by another bathroom.

Also as this end of the house is an entertainment room.

Safe swimming beach one minute away. Russell 2 minutes by car, with lots of restaurants, shops, dolphins, dive, and sightseeing tours in the Bay of Islands etc.

Boat ramp just 200 meters away, fishing rods, and 1 kayak for guest use available.
