We were very lucky to find this gem. Peter and Jenny are the perfect hosts of the Bay of Island Cottages, which is situated 15 minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Russel, in a beautiful secluded spot overlooking a bay with oyster farms. The cottages are well appointed, with a decking overlooking the bay. Breakfast was outstanding and... More

We stayed here for 2 nights for our New Zealand Northland Christmas holiday, and couldn't have asked for anything more - it was wonderful :) Our little studio had a great view over the water and we sat outside one lovely evening watching dusk fall as the tide came in. The facilities are excellent, everything we needed was there and... More

Stayed 3 nights there. Nothing to complain. Breakfast was outstandingly good. Peter and Jenny are exceptionally friendly hosts. The cottage was immaculate and spacey. We would have loved to stay longer.

What a quiet wonderful cottage in an beautiful environment! We very much enjoyed our two nights here! Peter and Marion are wonderful hosts, making the best breakfast in New Zealand we ever had. They even took care of my lactose-free diet, baking everything freshly with lactose-free milk! We enjoyed the talks with you and the other guests during breakfast. We... More

Away from the madding crowd (not that it was crowded at the end of March) Peter and Jenny have a clutch (3?) cabins built on the hillside around their main home. Nicely furnished with water views from the deck, the accommodation provides a sense of isolation and independence. Unfortunately we did not take advantage of the beach access. A short... More

My husband and I stayed at Bay of Islands Cottages for two nights. If our schedule had permitted we would have loved to stay longer. The cottage was very clean and spacious, with a nice balcony with a view across the water. I had my best nights sleep of our trip here due to the comfortable bed and quiet location.... More

We selected Bay of Islands Cottages after reading the reviews. We would agree with all the comments made, clean, comfortable, good hosts, fantastic breakfasts, Just a couple of observations to add. The bush location does mean what is says, the mosquitoes are voracious at dusk, so no sitting on the veranda in the evening. The view from the studio apartment... More

Not far out of Russell in a beautiful location, the cottage was spotless, comfortable, well appointed and peaceful. Peter and Jenny were delightful hosts, full of information on the area and many of our fellow guests were staying there for the second time. The breakfasts are pretty amazing, and you certainly won't need to eat anything else for the rest... More

Stayed here for 3 nights near the start of our honeymoon in NZ and loved every min of it. Sadly Jenny could not be there during our stay but Peter was an excellent host who really made our stay quite special. We looked forward to the amazing breakfasts (even the muesli was home made with home grown ingredients!) and talking... More
