I decided to visit Russell in the midst of autumn in the Bay of Islands. Despite the cooler weather the town was busy preparing for ANZAC day with a warm hospitality that was only overshadowed by that given to me when I arrived at Villa Russell B&B. Villa Russell is located a short fifteen minute walk from the Russell pier... More

While in NZ visiting family, Villa Russell was booked for us by NZ friends. We had two nights at this wonderful B&B. The property is lovely, the hosts are perfect, the view from our room was amazing, breakfast was delicious and served on the balcony outside our room, our room was incredibly spacious and clean, the location is stunning and...

We were recommended Vila Russell by a friend who had recently stayed here. Su and Steve were good hosts and we were made to feel welcome right fro the outset. There are two rooms set in their own annexe, both of which have views out over the bay which is quite stunning. The rooms are large measuring 5 metres x... More

I came here on the recommendation of the information place on the pier. I asked for a room with a view and was not disappointed. Villa Russell is slightly up the hill from the front - but still only a very short walk - and as a result the views of the whole bay from the rooms are little short... More

This was one of those times when we were really glad that we just took a chance and knocked on Sue and Steves door. They were great, the room was fabulous with a fantastic view from our balcony, on which a feast of a breakfast was served each morning at a time to suit us. With the added opportunity of... More

Our first visit to the bay islands and we sure got lucky. Asked for a recommendation from the nicest hotel in Russell and the concierge recommended that we stay with Steven and Sue. They were great and their home beautiful. They were accommodating, friendly and full of information and tales of the history of Russell. The converted front parlor suite... More

It was a wonderful stay. The rooms were so polished but very comfortable. The view was fantastic with plenty of seating to enjoy it. Sue and Steve went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and were so gracious. Just a three minute walk from the waterfront and town center but on a quite street with nature to... More

The best location in town, our bedroom had a gorgeous view. Beautiful house on top of a hill, we had family come visit and the hosts offered their living room so we could talk the afternoon away. We felt so at home, with private villas only steps away from main house. Hospitality and accommodations were the best we experienced the... More

My friend highly reccommended the place, so we decided to stay. Did not regret it for a second. The place really ticks all the boxes: great view, great location, genuinly warm and kind hospitality. The place reminded me of a retreat... it is located on top of a hill next to bush, so you can hear kiwis and other birds.... More

We found the hosts to be most welcoming, the room was tastefully decorated, spacious and had amazing views from the balcony. Located within walking distance to everything, it was ideal. The breakfast attested to the excellent quality of home cooking and was exceptional! Would definitely recommend this to all and sundry - a real treasure!
