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

The space
Tapeka Beach Bach is nestled just above the sand and lapping waves. This iconic Kiwi beach house has a fresh contemporary decor furnished and equipped to a high standard.

This is the perfect nest to escape, unwind and rejuvenate. Enjoy the unique vistas and attractions only the Bay of Islands can offer. Experience birdlife, dolphins frolicking and superb year round sunsets. You may even see a pod of passing Orca whales. Wander onto the beach hand in hand, explore secluded bays in a kayak – or just sit back and be entertained by the constant procession of passing boats.

Situated at Tapeka Point, just two minutes from historic Russell village with ferries, boat trips, attractions, historic places, shops and restaurants. The perfect base to explore the rest of the Northland region.

This cozy one bedroom beach house has a comfortable new queen bed with stunning sea views and the sound of the waves. If you really must share, the living room has an ottoman that converts to a single bed.

Breathtaking unobstructed 270 degree views extend out into the Bay. There is no road between you and beach, no traffic noise and no tourists walking by. Relax on the covered surround verandah or outside in the sun. Sit back outside in deck chairs, bean bags, Cape Cod chairs or lie back on a sun lounger. Leave your towel behind as the all tide swimming beach and diving pontoon is only a few steps away. Rinse off under the hot outdoor shower when you return. Lots of walking tracks including Kiwi habitats. Row boat, double and single Kayaks to explore the coastline and secluded bays.

Tapeka Beach Bach has a fully equipped kitchen if you wish to self-cater, collect a take out or use the BBQ grill. Better still enjoy a romantic meal on the Russell waterfront, just two minutes away. Separate bathroom with shower.

Facilities include Air Conditioning / Heat Pump, Nespresso machine, TV, DVD, Bluetooth sound system, free WiFi, washing machine and dryer. Quality linen, towels and beach towels included. Try your luck fishing from the beach, dinghy or nearby rocks. Boat launching ramp 100m away.

This is not an apartment, cabin or basement flat. You will enjoy exclusive use of this self contained beachfront property in privacy with no shared facilities or on site owners. If you can only stay one night please ask. Need more space? Combine with “Bay of Islands Beachfront - Tapeka del Mar” next door also on the beach. This larger 4 bedroom beach house can accommodate up to 13 guests.

The location, position, views and nearby attractions are unequalled, but don't take our word for it - please read the reviews and book your escape now!
