One queen bed apartment with fully fitted kitchenette and lounge area that faces the Pacific Ocean, with spectacular views and access to beach.
“Great place to stay to explore all that The Bay of Islands has to offer. Only a few minutes drive from the lovely town of Russell with its bars, restaurants, shops and galleries. The apartment is clean, smart and comfortable with lots of amenities to make your stay memorable. Great hosts, who were very keen to make sure that everything was ok. The accommodation sits high up above a beach that can be accessed by a stairway, although it’s a bit rough for a swim there is another 5 mins walk away that is ideal with sand and great for swimming. Just a perfect place to relax and unwind. Highly recommended.”
Watch the harbour activities and ever changing vista from the deck of our clean and comfortable home. We are situated just above the car ferry on the Russell side of the Opua harbour. Shared accommodation in a kiwi family home. The ferry cost is $13 per car & runs a continual service. Or you can walk on for just $1 per person. Please note this is not an apartment but a family home that we share with travelers! There are times when we are not home, but guests are still welcome to stay.
“What a lovely place to stay. It was our first stop after 48 hours of continuous travel from the UK. Our three nights at Ferry Landings were relaxing and enabled us to explore the Russell area and visit Waitangi. There is a beautiful view from the balcony and Andrea is an engaging and very helpful host.”
In Tapeka Point with a short stroll to swimming beach and just a 5 minute drive to Russell with all its cafes restaurants and old world charm. Or stay at home and utilize the well appointed kitchen and bbq area. Choose to sit on the deck and watch the boats go by or enjoy the bush walks and local attractions nearby. We have a portable crib so families with babies are very welcome.
“If it was possible we would give Sharon & Paul 10 stars! We stayed here during the lockdown period and were overwhelmed by the hospitality and helpfulness of Sharon & Paul. Apart from their personal qualification as super-hosts, the apartment was perfect for us as a family of four: access to two empty beaches, swimming, kayaking, tracks through lush nature, and the possibility to see sunrise and sunset from the same terrace made this place unique for us. The place is located in a lovely and pintoresque neighborhood, the apartment was clean, nicely decorated with tastful and family produced artwork, beds are comfortable, the kitchen has everything you need - and if something is missing Sharon will make sure to arrange it. We will never forget our stay here!”
