Overview

Photos and Description of this Russell holiday house

Bach or holiday home, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 6)

Perfectly placed in quiet cul de sac on the hillside above Russell, this top-quality home built in ?Cape Cod? style offers comfort, character and fabulous views across the water towards Waitangi and Matauwhi Bay. With its own relaxing garden and giant pohutakawa tree, Zemmery Fidd features beautiful hardwood floors throughout and has decks at front and rear. Just a short (but steep!) walk from the village centre and beaches, you are rewarded with stunning views and an ideal luxury base for exploring the Bay of Islands.

Two large upstairs bedrooms (queen beds) with superb views share a shower room. The ground floor features a large L-shaped living/dining room with open fireplace, another bedroom (2 single beds), bathroom, separate TV lounge and modern kitchen. Outside there are large decks and lawns both front and rear and off-street parking. From the front deck you have views of the bay, the town wharf and across to Waitangi golf course and you can plan your day accordingly. Nearby you have the Cape Brett walk, great surf beaches and some of the best fishing, diving and sailing in the world.

The house has a TV with Netflicks and unlimited WiFi.

Extras: Cleaning (Required, NZ$100.00 per stay); Linen (Required, NZ$10.00 per person);

We had such a lovely stay at this beautiful and relaxing property, situated just a 5min walk from the wharf at Russel (uphill on return but so short wasn't an issue!). Stunning views across the bay and to Pahia. Super peaceful and quiet street with stunning sunrises and sunsets. We saw Kingfishers, Weka, Tui (& chickens!) wandering around the lawn as we had breakfast/drinks. Had all the home comforts and more you could want (incl an amazing book collection!). We can highly recommend.

Great views and location - well supplied and stocked.

  • 3 of 5

Great views and location - well supplied and stocked. Minor issues - not having WiFi access or TV were a negative for us - didn't read the spec properly! Might have expected beds to be made up on arrival - as at all other places we have stayed at so far. Building work next door was a bit intrusive even on a Sunday. We had a relaxed stay however - feedback meant to be constructive.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feedback. The wifi and tv should not have been a surprise, we make this quite clear to all guests. Hopefully you found plenty of wifi down in the cafes in town. The beds however, should have been made up. Many apologies for that, I can only put this down to a very busy season throughout Russell. Glad you enjoyed the property though. **** UPDATE **** : Zemmery Fidd has recently changed hands and Unlimited WiFi and TV with Netflicks have now been added to a separate TV room
