Oyster Watch offers you a quiet, romantic, almost rural holiday, yet only 3 klms from Russell township. The apartment overlooks the beautiful Orongo Bay, home of the famous Orongo Bay Oysters which can be purchased from almost from your doorstep. It is situated just 4 klms from the Opua Ferry on the main road into Russell. Outstanding views from Orongo Bay to the Te Wahapu Peninsula with lovely farming and hillside views to the rear. At Oyster Watch you are so close to all the amenities the Bay of Islands has to offer. Russell itself offers many quaint restaurants and historical places to visit, or take the Cream Trip, watch the dolphins from Fullers Dolphin Watch boats. Take a lazy boat ride over to Paihia and enjoy the shops or explore the beautiful surrounding beaches of Russell. Long Beach and Tapeka are only 5kms from Oyster Watch. Waitangi, Kerikeri, Haruru Falls, are all an easy drive away.

So come on up and enjoy New Zealands own piece of Paradise - You will not be disappointed.
