Russell, Bay of Islands, Northland Region, North Island
The Gables Waterfront Apartment is housed in a lovingly restored historic building on the Russell foreshore. Built on whalebone foundations by Joseph England, a shoemaker, in 1847

Simply a lovely, stylish, well appointed apartment in a superb location and in a great historic property right on the Strand. Jenny and Robert were great to deal with. Helpful in every way. Great value. A pleasure in every way. Thoroughly recommended.

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.
