What a terrific place, lovingly cared for and top notch. Right next to the Russel Ferry but quiet -- center of the action but peaceful at the same time.Away from the bigger tourist area of Pahia yet only a 5 minute drive away. Excellent accommodation with beautiful kitchen and bathroom with heated floors. Plenty of heaters to keep warm in... More

What a great find, we loved it, very quiet even though its right next to the car ferry, it has everything you could possibly want, a very comfortable place for 2 couples or hire the whole place out with a group, I'd recommend the Boathouse over a hotel. Its a great view, you can fish off the balcony (yes really... More

We stayed for 4 days in November - there are 2 apartments (one ground floor and one upstairs) - both 2 bedroom and ONE bathroom so may not be suitable for 2 couples (given the price). The layout and setting are really spectacular - in Opua right beside the car ferry to Russell wharf. The ferry runs from 7am -... More

Absolutely amazing views from this modern apartment with 1st class facilities. Four adults stayed in The Landing-the lower apartment , with two KS beds, large well planned living area with gorgeous outside deck, like the bow of a boat.
