A few days at this house were as good as they could possibly be. Idyllic setting, grass right down to the beach, non-stop water views with loads to see, pleanty to do and stay busy or simply put your feet up. Highly recomend booking this perfect escape.
We spent 5 nights in this beautiful Bach. Fantastic location and great Bach. Ideal for 2 people and a great base to be able to see the bay of islands. We will be back!
My partner and I spent 2 nights in this gorgeous beach house in the middle of winter. We loved waking up to the beach views and were even inspired to swim! The house has everything you may need for a relaxing few days. Our only advice would be to bring a few gourmet delicacies (cheese and olives etc.) as the Russell supermarkets just stock the basics. Do yourself a favour, take the plunge!
Wow, what a beach house
We spent a fantastic week in Tapeka Bach, after we get a short, fresh and welcome by the owner, we get the key of the beach house.
The Appartement itself is very modern, has all you need to spend a good time in house and at the beach (Kajaks, boat, kitchen equipement,...) A warm outside shower an 50 Min to the private beach Access.
I just can highly recommand to spent time there
We have travelled all over the world and this beachfront villa is a really special place. It does not get much better than this!
Situated right on the beach with fantastic views of the bay. You can literally take 20 steps and you are on the lovely sandy beach that has rock pools and good snorkelling at one end. Even on a bank holiday weekend during the school holidays the beach was not crowded at all and on normal week days there were only a few people about. The deck has multiple aspects so you can always find sun or a cooling breeze if the mood takes you. Bring your binoculars for watching the sailing and power boats go past or looking at the forests on the west side of the bay.
You have all new mod-cons including washing machine, Nespresso coffee maker, powerful bluetooth speakers, an excellent gas BBQ and a brand-new 2 person kayak that can be used to find deserted bays in the area! The bed is large and the mattress was comfortable (important if you happen to be tall with a bad back...). The local town (Russell) is only a few minutes drive away and offers good restaurants and pubs.
Clive happened to be staying nearby when we were there - he is a great guy, very helpful, knowledgeable and made us feel welcome throughout our stay. We would definitely come back and highly recommend this beachfront escape.
This is the most beautiful beach home we have ever stayed in. It has the most Stunning views!!
Quality inclusions & guest comfort has been well thought out by the owner.
There is absolutely nothing bad about this place... It is truely outstanding. My only regret is not staying in this wonderful house for longer.
A perfect little spot just outside of Russell and right on the beach. Great Views, comfortable bed, well equipped kitchen, great decks from which to enjoy the sunsets. What more can you want. It was nicer than expected, but a bit cold at night. I would not recommend that you rent this place for 5 or 6 people. I would say 2 adults and one to two kids at most- and then only if you live being together 24/7.
This turned out to be one of our two favourite spots on our trip to the North.
