A wonderfully appointed two bedroom apartment overlooking gorgeous Russell harbour ... style and quality plus right on the waterfront. Highly recommended.

“Winter sunshine and luxury”
Reviewed July 14, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This is a wonderful place. A few steps from the beach and with absolutely everything provided in top order, this is the ideal option.
We arrived the day before the town filled for the Birdman Festival, so enjoyed a crowded and later, a usual version of the population. All fantastic fun.

“Perfect in every way”
Reviewed April 19, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Good to see after several years of usage (and reviews) this comfortable and cleverly designed accommodation venue is still spotlessly clean, immaculately presented and tastefully decorated. As a previous reviewer has implied, a perfect blend of history and contemporary comfort.
Hard to imagine a better location in the historic and beautiful seaside village of Russell, literally a short stroll to any shop or attraction in the immediate area or a short ferry trip across the Harbour to the busier, larger Paihia.

“Perfect Getaway”
Reviewed October 13, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Went for a weekend with two couples. It was the perfect weekend always. Beautifully furnished with spectacular views right on the water. Highly recommend it to all. The Gaybles restaurant below was amazing as well.

“The best spot to stay in Russell”
Reviewed January 9, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We have just returned from a week staying in The Gables and we were delighted with every aspect of this beautiful apartment. Sitting above the Gables restaurant over looking the water and The Strand, this historic building is filled with character, yet has all the modern comforts.
All of the appointments are first class and you will not be disappointed in anyway.
The position is amazing, you will never tire of the ever changing view or watching the people passing by or eating at the many restaurants along the way.
We appreciated all of the advice about the local places to visit, eat and see as well as the warm welcome from Lesley on our arrival.
We will certainly return.

“Perfection Plus”

This is a well laid out apartment in a wonderful position. There wasn't a thing you could need that wasn't there. From Bandaids in the bathroom, a cosy gas log fire, books, wine glasses,
comfort plus, almost new, very clean. A place you could just move in and think it was yours.
On the door step of the water, ferry to Paihia, shops & wonderful restaurants. Keri Keri was a great days visit as well. We wil stay longer next time.
