Our unique, contemporary Marina apartment is a special place to treat yourself to an indulgent holiday. New and fresh, it is one of only 3 apartments in the Opua Marina, and the only one available for guests to rent. Enjoy views over the marina and watch the comings and goings of yachts and launches from around the globe. The apartment is fitted out with quality european appliances and furnished with an eclectic collection of New Zealand art and objects.

The space
We created this place to be a luxurious and peaceful escape with easy access to our historic Zane Grey gamefishing boat (which is also available, with skipper). You are of course also welcome to bring your own boat - there are always marina moorings available in the off-season, and in the peak summer season if you book well in advance. There is also a boat ramp 50 metres from the apartment if you bring a trailer boat. Also within 50 metres is a great all day cafe serving delicious food and coffee. It is licensed and serves dinner Thursday, Friday and Saturday if you don't feel like self-catering in our very well appointed kitchen. Also within easy walking distance are superb fish and chips, the Opua Cruising Club bar and restaurant (open to the public) and amazing sandwiches and cabinet food from the Opua General Store (who also do pizza on Friday and Saturday evenings).
The apartment is over 2 levels, on the second and third levels of the building. Access is by keyless entry to the lower level where you'll find a huge lounge, kitchen & dining and bathroom. A deck with gas BBQ overlooks the marina. We decided against a TV because we wanted this to be an escape, but there is eat-as-much-as-you-like broadband wifi, an iMac (upstairs) and bluetooth Harmon Kardon speaker.
The top level has an office desk (with computer), a luxury super king size bed (and king size pillows) with 400 thread Royal Doulton percale linen. There is a huge space to flop into a bean bag or a comfy chair and read from the huge collection of books.

Where you’ll be

Opua, Northland, New Zealand

There is so much to do here, but the lovely thing is you're away from the madness of the tourism hotspots which you can dip in and out of as you wish. There are plenty of interesting places to eat in Paihia and Russell and right here in Opua. There is a compendium in the apartment where we share some of our favourites. There is also some fantastic local produce - fruit, veges, cheese, fish!!! and lots more - if you'd like to stay at home.

During your stay

If you are staying here it's because we're not! We live and work at the other end of the island, so you won't be seeing us. However we have a great friend who lives nearby and she'll be there to help you with any queries.
