The care taken in upgrading and maintaining this unique, historic old house in Russell is clearly evident and enough to recommend it to everyone. Nice backyard, lots of space inside (3 upstairs bedrooms plus downstairs living and kitchen spaces) and even an upstairs, outdoor deck....More

About the neighbourhood
Russell Kororareka is a small, historic seaside village on a peninsula in the eastern Bay of Islands. Since the 1700s it has provided a haven for visitors, offering shelter and hospitality. Because of its relatively remote location it retains an island quality and a charm that reflects the tranquility of earlier times. Despite this, it is a vibrant, cosmopolitan community that attracts visitors from New Zealand and all over the world - some of whom have chosen to make Russell their home.
Getting around
Russell is walkable by foot, however there’s some great vineyards nearby which you’ll need a car to get to. Also a few beaches which are beautiful but better accessed by car depending on your fitness. You can get the ferry from Paihia.

Getting to Russell from Auckland Although the town is situated on a peninsula, getting to Russell is easy. It is only three and a half hours drive from Auckland and forms part of the Twin Coast Discovery route. If you take the toll road on State Highway 1 which we suggest you do not pay the toll and continue your journey. We can then organise this payment when you get here. Please note your GPS will take you the coast road and not the car ferry. Beware this is a long, beautiful but windy road and we recommend you take the ferry instead. Upon entering Russell, turn right into Church St, past NZs oldest church, go straight across the next junction. We are about 20m on your right. If you fly you can rent a car at Kerikeri and drive to Russell or take a shuttle or taxi to Paihia and catch... more
