We stayed here for a couple of nights as part of a long weekend getaway to the Bay of Islands. The cottages are in a beautiful painted weatherboard style, have a fully equipped kitchen and a lovely living flame gas fire. There is a lovely decking area with a table and chairs which unfortunately we couldn't use because of the... More

Russell Cottages are absolutely supreme in every respect, spotlessly clean, units in immaculate condition, one of the loveliest places I have ever stayed. The tranquility and calmness was total bliss; in saying that all the action is only a few hundred meters away.

The complex offers nice clean trendy accommodation complete with everything you could need.The fully stocked kitchen meant we could cook some of our own meals and was brilliant for those midnight snacks. We were lucky enough to stay on a quite weekend and pretty much... More

We stayed at the Russell Cottages for two nights as a couple and i have to say, I wished we had booked for the whole week! The cottage was spacious, full kitchen, dining, and living room with a beautiful gas fire. We felt completely spoiled by the set up and we would highly recommend the cottages. Russell is already known... More

A much needed break from these home four walls, and Russell is always good for the soul. Just the two of us got to our cottage in the afternoon and were delighted at the size and comfort. The gas fire going and a relax by the TV, then off for a walk and pick up some nibbles and wine. Cold... More
