Overview

Photos and Description of this Russell holiday house

Bach or holiday home, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 5)

Clearwater is admired by many for both the position and fabulous art deco design, this delightful family holiday home offers comfort, location and style.

The family have chosen to leave the fine old lady in more or less her original condition, only adding aluminium windows and doors, new drapes and whiteware. All rooms have been freshly painted for the new season.

The house is full of character and quirky characteristics of the art deco period. All rooms in the house have a view of the sea, just walk across the lawn and you are on the beach, great swimming, walking and fishing off the rocks. Of course just sitting on the deck watching the dolphins and an occasional visit from the whales is a perfect pastime at this lovely holiday home. This is also a great home from which to explore Russell and the wider Bay of Islands with plenty of land or sea activities for everyone.

For those lucky enough to have the skills, there is even a piano in the lounge for you to gather round and sing the night away.

The house has an undercover area out back for BBQ and eating when getting out of the sun is a necessity.

Long Beach is a 7 minute walk into the village of Russell for dinner at one of the 6 restaurants, or enjoy a drink while watching the sun set from the Duke of Marlborough veranda, holder of the first hotel license in NZ. Along from this is the Russell Wharf, a jumping off point for various boating activities be it fishing, Dolphin watching, sailing or just a sightseeing trip around the Islands.

Plenty of room to park cars and boats.

Clearwater's location can't be beaten! So quiet and out of the wild winds on the town side.

Clearwater's location can't be beaten! So quiet and out of the wild winds on the town side. The house has that welcome, feel at home character that you rarely get when staying in hotels. The lounge facing north and the beach was just magic to read a book on. The kids had such a great time & we only left to see a few things when it rained.

Property was exactly as expected - a 1930's Art Deco bach.

  • 4 of 5

Property was exactly as expected - a 1930's Art Deco bach. As a former owner of a beachfront bach the property had the features I was looking for. Probably not for those looking for luxury accommodation.

Perfect beach location for family with children! Loved the town, fishing and pretty much everything about it! Funky 1950's bach which gave the trip even more character.

The location is excellent right on the beachfront.

  • 3 of 5

The location is excellent right on the beachfront.

The house itself has old dated furniture and uncomfortable bedding. TV wasn't working when we stayed there. It would be helpful if the owner could provide a selection of DVDs and some board games.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback, we will forward this on to the owner. The issue with the TV has been resolved, the Sky dish had malfunctioned due to the storm, a new one has been installed.
