Why barrng254 chose Russell
We always enjoyed holidaying in Russell. It is the gateway to the Bay of Islands, which is a very special place of the World. The Bay Retreat is so well positioned to the Beach and the Sunshine, yet is sheltered. The views are enchanting.

Ideal location with all the amenities
Zero fuss, no problems and had a great week long holiday
A stones throw from the beach in a property that has that old school batch feel. Everything works well and the batch has some great chillout cds to watch that sunset frim the veranda. We did not want to leave. Definately booking again.
Down by the beach
A lovely, well appointed and well equipped holiday home right down by the beach. Great spot for R&R and enjoying the views no matter what the weather. Really appreciated the dog friendly fence which meant we could relax. Pool table was put to good use along with books from the great collection. THANKS!
Away from it all
A lovely relaxing place to stay, where you can sit on the deck watching yachts pass by. Very quiet beach in front of you, and all you need in the house to have a great stay. Close enough to Russell to pop in for a meal, but then you can return to your own little hideaway from it all. Good communication throughout with Barry, who was happy to provide suggestions on options we were considering.
We had a fabulous stay at the Bay Retreat. Perfect location. Love the birdlife and beautiful views.
Bach is equipped with everything you need. Excellent! Thanks for having us.
Lovely Beachfront Home
We had a wonderful time in Russell and enjoyed the Bay Retreat very much. This property has all you need in a beautiful location. Our kids enjoyed the beach, kayaking, and game room very much. The town of Russell is very charming and friendly.
Russell village is one of the world's best kept secrets, with a variety of tourist activities, fine restaurants, and cafes. Russell is a 2 min. drive/12 min. walk from the Bay Retreat.
