Stunning

  • 5 of 5

We travelled all the way from the UK and was not disappointed with our first experience of New Zealand. Russell is a lovely quaint little town and I think we had the best accommodation on offer. It was absolutely stunning. The view out across the bay whilst sitting in bed enjoying a cuppa was amazing. The evening sunsets fabulous. Going out to a local cafe, or catching the water ferry to pop across the water for breakfast was so enjoyable. We never had a bad meal and yes we can highly recommend The Gables restaurant right beneath the apartment. Food delicious and staff friendly. It can get abit windy but a short walk takes you to the other stunning beach which would be sheltered. We spent a week in this beautiful apartment before moving on and found it just perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We could not have picked a more fitting spot for our mini-honeymoon: a private, luxury apartment with stunning views, a resident tui in the tree outside, and the sound of water lapping on the shore a stone's throw away.

An amazing location; with all mod cons and then some - we felt like we were in a luxury lodge. Russell's famous power cuts gave us an excuse to crank up the open gas fireplace and light a few candles. Perfect.

Beautiful! Great location, and a pleasingly well equipped and homely apartment.

Beautiful! Great location, and a pleasingly well equipped and homely apartment. We were almost disappointed we didn't have a rainy day, because we would have been quite happy staying in! Make use of the Gables restaurant...terrific food, great service. We treated ourselves and had the chef come up to the apartment to prepare our dinner on one night - WOW! What a treat. Great stuff.
