Overview

Photos and Description of this Okiato holiday house

Bach or holiday home, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 11)

Located 7 minutes from Historic Russell, on Waikare Inlet, you will find our beautifully kept wood paneled cottage on 5 acres of native bush. Barbecue on the deck as you watch the sunset change the ocean's colours or have a spa in our covered outdoor area glimpsing the myriad of stars lighting up the inlet. Would you like a dip in the owners heated swimming pool next door? Not a problem! Its yours between 10 - 3 every day October - June.

We are located right across the road from Russell's newest native bush walk, there's a lovely secluded swimming beach 5 minutes walk away, or you might want to launch one of the kayaks at our own waterfront (tidal). The kayaks can also be taken to Russell's finest beach, Long Beach, where they can be used as surfing kayaks. The kayaks have fishing rod holders if you feel like trying your luck for one of our many luscious snapper or we keep a row boat and oars with two rods for trying your luck in our bay.

We have a range of FREE sporting equipment for your use: tennis rackets, mountain bikes, the kayaks and row boat with fishing gear, croquet, trampoline, table tennis, basketball hoop, lots of indoor games plus SKY, wifi available.

And of course, there's Russell. Swim with the dolphins, take a jet boat out to the Hole in the Rock or a leisurely sailing cruise around the islands, charter a boat for a day's snapper or marlin fishing, visit our historic sites and places, or just bring a book while the kids romp on the beach or paddle in our crystal clear waters. There's too many things to do here - I haven't even touched on the heaps of places you'll find to explore within an hour's radius of our home.

The house is amazing with everything that you need for a comfortable stay. I highly recommend this place, it's exactly as described and the pictures truly reflect the property. Also, no worries if the weather is not good, the house is fully equipped with games and things to do indoors. Thank you so much, Kathy, I am looking forward to returning in the future.
