We booked six days at the Sails Villa - one of the two villas in Upua, Bay of Islands. Marj, the Manager, met us when we arrived in Upua on a horrid day of unseasonal torrential rain and took us through all the facilities which was very helpful. We were delighted with our first impassions and it got even better... More

We stayed at the Bridge Deck villa for 3 nights and totally loved it. Marj was very helpful with explaining how everything works in the villa and made us promise to call her up if we needed anything. The villa itself overlooks the Opua bay and I never got tired of seeing the car ferry shuttling people back and forth... More

This was a great start to a wonderful vacation in New Zealand. While we were at the Bay of Islands (February 21-24) the sun shone and we enjoyed perfect conditions for time on the deck of Bridge Deck Villa. We found the villa very comfortable, clean, there were basic groceries in the cupboard and Marj provided good advise to get... More

This was our second stay at The Deck at Crows Nest Villas - the first was about 6 years ago. Unfortunately, I had forgotten just how hard and uncomfortable the beds are, which marred an otherwise perfect stay. The views are fantastic - although it rained every day of our 9 night stay we enjoyed watching the changing skies,the Russell... More

Two couples recently spent a week in the Bridge Deck Villa at Crows nest villas in the bay of Islands. The villa and its location was excellent, and the views were incredible. Marj, the manager, was extremely helpful and sorted out an Internet clitch as soon as possible. She also suggested various things to do. Unfortunately, we struck some rainy... More

I thank my lucky stars I clicked on these villas in my search for the perfect (non-bank-breaking) accommodation in the Bay of Islands. They were not that easy to find because they are listed as located in Opua, although it is a five minute drive from all the Paihia action. Instead of being just the place to stay on the... More

We spent a lovely few days here using it as a base to explore the Bay of Islands. There’s plenty of room, well-equipped facilities and a great view over the sleepy little harbour. The spacious open plan rooms are absolute sun-magnets with lovely big decks so you can bake like a Russell-mussel and watch the boats come and go all... More

We stayed here for a hol within the hol for my birthday treat and it was exactly as described on the website. It was a great place to stay to be away from the crowds of Paihia but close enough to get to easily. The villa has a great view over Opua harbour just watching the sail boats come and... More

We enjoyed our 5 night stay at the Crow's Nest Villas in December 2006. Opua is a great base for the Bay of Islands for those who want to get away from the backpacker crowd at Paihia but without the ferry hassle of staying in Russell. We stayed at the two bedroom Bridge Deck villa which was decorated in a... More
