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
“Quintessentially NZ Paradise. From basking in the morning light to watching the sun set across the water, Tapeka Bach provides the most perfect spot to take it all in. Just over the hill from the main street of Russell and yet like a tucked away local secret, the Bach is positioned in a prime position of The Bay, providing ease to soak in all the natural beauty of the direct surroundings and it's thriving local bird life. Many moments were spent watching my family laugh and swim while I relaxed on the deck, wine in one hand, book in the other. Even visiting family managed to moor right at the front. It could not have been better. Clive, the host was wonderful and friendly and always accomodating with information, making things easy and seamless. The perfect holiday. THANK YOU. What a spot! We will return.”
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.”
