We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Robin and Rick's place of paradise. The apartment contained everything you'd need for a visit to Russell. Robin made us feel welcome and we loved sitting on the deck with the sun setting and watching weka's pass by. Thanks a lot for having us!
Great apartment in a great little town. The hosts were very friendly and helpful.
Robin is a very caring and kind host and has a brilliant apartment. The night we arrived at her place in Russell we found that no shops or restaurants were open that late. Robin was gracious enough to offer us eggs, bread, fruit and a few snacks so we wouldn't have to sleep hungry. Absolutely fantastic! During the rest of out visit she was available whenever we needed her but left us to our selves to explore beautiful bay of islands. Thank you for being a great host. Our only regret was that we didn't get to write in the visitor book as we left in a hurry. We hope other do :)
we had a great stay at robin's place. lovely apartment with a loft bed and everything you need. robin rven provided a booklet with everything you need to know about russell (activities etc). would absolutely recommend to stay here!
Robin and Rick made our stay very easy . First off we arrived a day late . We underestimated driving times in NZ . Not only did Robin agree to extend our stay another day but refused to take money for the day we missed .
The space is very much like their boat: compact , comfortable and utilitarian . The tiling in the bath is beautiful particularly the shower floor with embedded round river rock. The deck is shaded by trees and the music of the birds and wind through them is peaceful .
When you book be certain to see if they will be sailing the" Phantom". You will be regaled with great seafaring stories , NZ history , and the best lunch in Russell .

RRR: Robin, Rick in Russell.
We enjoyed your "very quiet place".
A truly "Russell Good Vibe" with very easy going people (that is You as our hosts).
No key to the Apt, no problem in Russell for us. For the others, they will have to figure it out.
Wekas (not Kiwis) are now our friends. Two giant NZ Pigeons even befriended us in the yard. How cool is that.
We loved cooking fresh fish and trying all kinds of smoked varieties from a close neighbour vendor. That too is quite cool.
And after a couple of days, we felt part of your community.
Of course, the Phantom Sail Experience is Awesome. A somewhat fusion between a massage and a roller coaster. How to explain?
