Enjoy a welcoming visit to Villa Russell, two minutes from the beach and Russell's restaurants yet totally private and secluded. Relax with magnificent views of the bay from our beautifully restored 1910 villa or from one of two spacious guest rooms in the new guest cottage. Off street parking provided. Be welcomed by our friendly family dog. Continental breakfast with delicious local produce served al fresco on the balcony overlooking the sea Charters on our 11.6 metre yacht Kingfisher may also be arranged to sail the Bay of Islands.

...For much less. Steven and Susan could not have been more welcoming. Our room was large and comfortable. (Susan: put a floor lamp in the corner). Breakfast was delightful. But the view over the harbour was simply amazing. Probably our best B&B experience in NZ among some great ones.

Excellent location with amazing views over the bay in Russell. Only a short walk to restaurants. The hosts are so friendly and helpful with suggestions of how to see the best of the area. The breakfasts were lovely with fresh fruit and toast. Would totally recommend here rather than a hotel. Hope to return one day.

We stayed 4 nights. Sue and Steven are very hospitable and generous. Clean room. The deck has a beautyfull bayview. A good place to see the fireworks at New years eve. We had breakfast at the sunny deck with fresh fruits and home made yogurt and fresh bread. We had a relaxing sealing day with Steven. It wasn’t necessary to do the dishes, Sue did!

My daughter and myself spent a magical couple of days in Villa Russell. Our room and en-suite was luxurious with extra little touches that made it and us feel very special. Breakfast on the balcony with spectacular views was first class. A short stroll into the beautiful town of Russell with an abundance of bars and excellent restaurants. We will be back. Thank you Sue and Stephen for making us feel so welcome.

Thank you Sue and Stephen for a wonderful, relaxing time at Villa Russell. Too short, of course, but accommodation, breakfast, location and weather were all of a very high standard and perfect for a mid-winter break. Location just a few minutes walk from the village is ideal and we enjoyed local restaurants and exploring Russell and environs on foot. We will highly recommend to others and hope to be back again.
