Better than beachfront - this is ON the beach! Modernized classic Kiwi beach house. Private location with stunning views. Furnished to a high standard with linen and cleaning included. Listen to the waves, swim, kayak, watch the boats, dine, relax, romance and rejuvenate. Close to historic Russell and the many Bay of Islands attractions
“Quintessentially NZ Paradise. From basking in the morning light to watching the sun set across the water, Tapeka Bach provides the most perfect spot to take it all in. Just over the hill from the main street of Russell and yet like a tucked away local secret, the Bach is positioned in a prime position of The Bay, providing ease to soak in all the natural beauty of the direct surroundings and it's thriving local bird life. Many moments were spent watching my family laugh and swim while I relaxed on the deck, wine in one hand, book in the other. Even visiting family managed to moor right at the front. It could not have been better. Clive, the host was wonderful and friendly and always accomodating with information, making things easy and seamless. The perfect holiday. THANK YOU. What a spot! We will return.”
One queen bed apartment with fully fitted kitchenette and lounge area that faces the Pacific Ocean, with spectacular views and access to beach.
“Great place to stay to explore all that The Bay of Islands has to offer. Only a few minutes drive from the lovely town of Russell with its bars, restaurants, shops and galleries. The apartment is clean, smart and comfortable with lots of amenities to make your stay memorable. Great hosts, who were very keen to make sure that everything was ok. The accommodation sits high up above a beach that can be accessed by a stairway, although it’s a bit rough for a swim there is another 5 mins walk away that is ideal with sand and great for swimming. Just a perfect place to relax and unwind. Highly recommended.”
In Tapeka Point with a short stroll to swimming beach and just a 5 minute drive to Russell with all its cafes restaurants and old world charm. Or stay at home and utilize the well appointed kitchen and bbq area. Choose to sit on the deck and watch the boats go by or enjoy the bush walks and local attractions nearby. We have a portable crib so families with babies are very welcome.
“If it was possible we would give Sharon & Paul 10 stars! We stayed here during the lockdown period and were overwhelmed by the hospitality and helpfulness of Sharon & Paul. Apart from their personal qualification as super-hosts, the apartment was perfect for us as a family of four: access to two empty beaches, swimming, kayaking, tracks through lush nature, and the possibility to see sunrise and sunset from the same terrace made this place unique for us. The place is located in a lovely and pintoresque neighborhood, the apartment was clean, nicely decorated with tastful and family produced artwork, beds are comfortable, the kitchen has everything you need - and if something is missing Sharon will make sure to arrange it. We will never forget our stay here!”
