From the moment we walked in we were blown away by the view and the quality of the apartment. High quality fixtures and fittings and hosts that make sure you have a great time. Even caught a few fish off the deck!!! Dont want to leave. Fantastic place.

We were part of a large group of friends who rented this property for 2 weeks. People came for 2 or 3 days to spend time with very special mates. It was fantastic! Although wet we found plenty to do within walking distance. The servicing of the Apartment was outstanding. It would suit from toddlers to elderly as long as... More

We were very impressed with the quality and location of the Boathouse. We stayed in the upper level apartment, aptly named 'the Bridge'. We had wanted to book the apartment on the ground floor known as 'the Landing' (basically because of their photo of fishing over the side of the deck) but as it was already taken we booked the...

Stayed in 'The Landing' for 2 nights late October. This has got to be the best place we have ever stayed in and we have been fortunate enough to have stayed in many lovely places. It is incredibly spacious, from the massive bathroom to the kitchen, to the wrap around balcony and main bedroom. There are beautiful views from every... More

Clean comfortable and modern. The apartments have everything a family would need and are a great base for exploring the area. The ferry is literally right next to the building and would get annoying from a privacy perspective if one stayed for a long period. For a couple of days it was no issue and is not really too noisy.... More

This is a gorgeous, bright, airy, welcoming apartment, sitting over the water. The kitchen is very well appointed but if you don't feel like cooking for yourself, at the General Store, two minutes walk away, you can get takeaway pizza and a good cup of coffee. Opua is quieter than some other towns in the Bay of Islands but it... More

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

We stayed in The Landing, the lower apartment. We absolutely lved every minute of the stay and appreciated all the extra touches like masses of towels, excellent kitchen and views from every window. We were able to fish from the deck ....and yes we caught fish....we did send them back to grow bigger but it was fun and did entertain... 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
