About the Property
2 bedrooms + bathrooms, 2 min from an almost private swimming beach, bush walks
This holiday home has 2 comfortable dbl, bedrooms with their respective bathrooms, located in the upper part of the house. There is a fully equipped kitchen with dining area and a comfortable living area with bookshelves, a TV (Sky), a DVD player, a video, and a stereo unit.
From here and from the master bedroom, you can see the sail boats coming from and go to Paihia and Russell, the store from the international marina Opua. Sometimes, dolphins can be seen from the breakfast table. The master bedroom is equipped with 2 king beds that you can be transformed into a super king bed. The second bedroom has en-suite bathrooms, 2 king beds, and garden view.
It is completely separated at the bottom of the studio and usually inhabited by me.
I will be pleased and able to welcome you.
For golfers: generally and especially here in the north of New Zealand, there are almost deserted golf courses, so no waiting or registrations are necessary. There are about 10 'green fees' around us (a half day trip).
Seglersparadies: The Bay of Islands with its 144 islets beat sailor. Sail boats can be rented per day or week. It is similar to the dinghies available in Russell and Opua.
If you do not want or cannot sail by yourself, there are daily trips, with modern sailing boats, monohull, Catamaran, Trimaran, or the traditional vintage 'Tucker Thompson.'
You will enjoy the famous the 'Cream Trip' and 'Hole in the Rock' trip with good comments and sightseeing on the sea.
Hiking and Maori culture: There are many short and more challenging trails (Bush Walks) located in the immediate vicinity.
In Waitangi (New Zealand birthplace, you will find the Treaty House, in which the Maoris people, in 1842, passed the land to the English people). You can learn a lot about the Maori culture, the Treay House, and large war canoe.
In an evening, Maori dances are performed, and typical Erofen food is served.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Okiato (The first capital of New Zealand), a quiet secluded peninsula, a subdivision of Russell, 9 km away
Russell is not only an idyllic small harbour, but also romantic and historical place. Before colonization, it was an important trading port for ships and whalers. The bullet holes from the recent conflict between Maori people and Europeans are still visible on the walls of the first Christian Church of New Zealand.
Today, it is a resort with about 1000 permanent residents from all over the world.
There is an interesting museum, dedicated to Captain Cook and the Maori culture. Pompallier House was the first Catholic mission, printing, and old customs station. Today, there is a police station, galleries, cafés, restaurants, small supermarkets, and a port for sailing, as well as motor boat trips in Bay of Islands. Russell is also famous for the deep sea fishing charter (Zane Grey). In the Sword Fish Club, you can watch the giant Taxidermy fish.
