Nelson's Lookout is located on the picturesque Te Wahapu peninsula, a short drive from the main town of Russell.

The house was positioned by its original owner builder to have the finest views over the whole Russell bay area.

The property sits within a large section and so affords excellent privacy, with large leafy garden with plenty of lawn. Large sun deck for sun bathing with stunning views of the bay. There is a large parking area, including covered car parking, space for a speed or fishing boat with a lockable garage for additional storage.

Private beach access is via a private stairway to a secluded sandy sheltered beach, which offers opportunities to hand line fish, swim, sunbath and enjoy water sports in sheltered waters.

For those wishing to spend time on the water, use of a private mooring located in front of the property is available on request for your boat.

Water sports suggested on and around this bay are water skiing, ocean swimming, kayaking, wind surfing, kite surfing, diving & jet skiing.

Deep sea fishing for Marlin and kingfishing is a must, there are daily fishing boats for hire in Russell town for private fishing charters.

For more local reel fishing there are plenty of fishing charters within the Bay of Islands for local fish such as Snapper, kingfish, hapuka fishing to name a few.

There is also access to Russell newly built 'coastal walk' from Te Wahapu road there's about 16 kilometers of walking on forest and coastal paths.

Opportunity for biking around the Russell coastal roads.

There are also activities such as whale & dolphin watching, day & dinner cruses around the Bay of Islands which stop off on the islands for lunches and over night stays. Mack attack fast speed boat rides to the famous 'whole in the rock'. There are also sailing boats for hire or with crews for day sailing around the Islands.

Horse back riding is also available in Paihia.

The Town of Russell is just a short 7 minute drive away from the house with restaurants, shops and bars. There are also other wonderful public beaches around the Russell bays.
