The Gables Waterfront Apartment is housed in a lovingly restored historic building on the Russell foreshore with 'Reach out and touch the water' views of the bay. The apartment has its own private courtyard entrance. The living, dining and kitchen areas open through french doors onto the balcony terrace, the perfect place for morning coffee or an aperitif before dinner. Swim right outside on the waterfront beach or take your pick of any of the peninsula's other stunning beaches.
“Perfect Stay in Russell for four nights. Lovely apartment - perfect location. Bags of room in this spacious home and central to everything you may want to do. The shortest of strolls to the wharf to transfer to Paihia & just five minutes drive to the car ferry so you can explore Paihia, Kerrikerri & beyond. Kelly was a star and this was the easiest check in we have ever had. The restaurants treated as locals once they knew where we were staying offering to deliver food etc to our apartment. Our only complaint was that we couldn't stay longer in this lovely home. If everywhere we stayed went as well as this we would be happy campers indeed. Thanks again Kelly. Stu & Sara.”
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
“A truly unique piece of NZ paradise. This stay sums up everything a perfect kiwi summer holiday brings to mind. The location is perfect regardless of the weather. The deck offers shelter views across the bay. There is alway something new to look at from the changing light to boats to wild life. We had wekas strolling around the deck, a wild ginuea pig came to visit while we watched a large stingay swimming in the shallows from the deck chairs. The beach is a 30 second stroll, with kayaks and a dingy if you want to venture further. A great walk up to Tapeka pt starts just meters up the Rd. Clive is very quick to respond to any communication. The Bach is appointed with every convenience while still feeling relaxed and authentic. A highly recommended stay. Thanks Clive!”
One queen bed apartment with fully fitted kitchenette and lounge area that faces the Pacific Ocean, with spectacular views and access to beach.
“This place is absolutely incredible. Opening the doors on our first morning was a magical experience as we were staring right out to the ocean! The room is beautiful and roomy (and smelled so good) with everything you could need for a getaway. The spa looking out over the sea is stunning and definitely a highlight. The location is just over the hill from Russell itself which is even better than staying in the town as you are away from the tourists etc. There is a beautiful swimming beach and a fantastic walk along the nearby hill. Definitely recommend this spot!”
