“Gorgeous beach house”
Reviewed July 29, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

My partner and I spent 2 nights in this gorgeous beach house in the middle of winter. We loved waking up to the beach views and were even inspired to swim! The house has everything you may need for a relaxing few days. Our only advice would be to bring a few gourmet delicacies (cheese and olives etc.) as the Russell supermarkets just stock the basics. Do yourself a favour, take the plunge!

We will complain to the local food stores that their deli selection falls short of what people need to celebrate the surroundings. So pleased you enjoyed the stay

Wow, what a beach house
We spent a fantastic week in Tapeka Bach, after we get a short, fresh and welcome by the owner, we get the key of the beach house.
The Appartement itself is very modern, has all you need to spend a good time in house and at the beach (Kajaks, boat, kitchen equipement,...) A warm outside shower an 50 Min to the private beach Access.
I just can highly recommand to spent time there

“A perfect beachfront getaway!”
Reviewed January 30, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We have travelled all over the world and this beachfront villa is a really special place. It does not get much better than this!

Situated right on the beach with fantastic views of the bay. You can literally take 20 steps and you are on the lovely sandy beach that has rock pools and good snorkelling at one end. Even on a bank holiday weekend during the school holidays the beach was not crowded at all and on normal week days there were only a few people about. The deck has multiple aspects so you can always find sun or a cooling breeze if the mood takes you. Bring your binoculars for watching the sailing and power boats go past or looking at the forests on the west side of the bay.

You have all new mod-cons including washing machine, Nespresso coffee maker, powerful bluetooth speakers, an excellent gas BBQ and a brand-new 2 person kayak that can be used to find deserted bays in the area! The bed is large and the mattress was comfortable (important if you happen to be tall with a bad back...). The local town (Russell) is only a few minutes drive away and offers good restaurants and pubs.

Clive happened to be staying nearby when we were there - he is a great guy, very helpful, knowledgeable and made us feel welcome throughout our stay. We would definitely come back and highly recommend this beachfront escape.

“You Don't Get Any Closer to the Beach Than This”
Reviewed August 28, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

A perfect little spot just outside of Russell and right on the beach. Great Views, comfortable bed, well equipped kitchen, great decks from which to enjoy the sunsets. What more can you want. It was nicer than expected, but a bit cold at night. I would not recommend that you rent this place for 5 or 6 people. I would say 2 adults and one to two kids at most- and then only if you live being together 24/7.
This turned out to be one of our two favourite spots on our trip to the North.

Thank you for the review and comments. Your stay was in the middle of the NZ winter but you should be warm at night. We have extra blankets but have now added another heater. We agree that it is perfect for a couple. When there are more then 3 or 4 we recommend our other larger property - Tapeka del Mar next door where 4 bedrooms can sleep up to 13

“Paradise - even better than the pictures!”

This place surpassed all of our expectations. It's incredible. We were so excited to arrive from seeing the photos and the write up, but on arrival it was even better! Fantastic location, right on the beach, and yes, dolphins do swim right by! Its a great base to explore the whole Bay of Islands from. The beach hut was spotless, had everything we needed - including swimming towels, hairdryer and a very impressive bbq, and was very nicely furnished. Clive, the host, could not have been more welcoming, friendly and hospitable. We loved the place so much that we got engaged here! It couldn't have been more perfect and we didn't want to leave. For those looking for somewhere bigger, Clive showed us around Tapeka del Mar, which was equally fantastic and we'd definately book if we were coming back with friends or family...we can't wait to return.
