Overview

Photos and Description of this Russell holiday condo

Oyster Watch offers you a quiet, romantic, almost rural holiday, yet only 3kms from Russell township. The apartment overlooks the beautiful Orongo Bay, home of the famous Orongo Bay Oysters which can be purchased from almost from your doorstep. It is situated just 4kms from the Opua Ferry on the main road into Russell. Outstanding views from Orongo Bay to the Te Wahapu Peninsula with lovely farming and hillside views to the rear. At Oyster Watch you are so close to all the amenities the Bay of Islands has to offer. Russell itself offers many quaint restaurants and historical places to visit, or take the Cream Trip, watch the dolphiins from Fullers Dolphin Watch boats. Take a lazy boat ride over to Paihia and enjoy the shops or explore the beautiful surrounding beaches of Russell. Long Beach and Tapeka are only 5kms from Oyster Watch. Waitangi, Kerikeri,Haruru Falls, are all an easy drive away.

Nice flat with great views. Short walk to oyster farm and short drive to lovely wineries. Would definitely stay again. Flat has everything you need. Thanks again.

Although attached to the house you felt privacy.

Although attached to the house you felt privacy. Just close the bedroom curtain then you won't see the cars outside, keeps it more relaxed. The location is sublime, tranquil, scenic, bush and water views, lovely

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted an pleasantly surprised with what we got. To be honest, this raises the bar a bit for future places. The luxury of this property is in how well thought the ease of getting into the place and enjoying it was. Delighted by the view and proximity to town. Delighted by the bathroom and large shower and tub. Delighted by internet and kitchen utilities. Delighted by our hostess. We look forward to the opportunity to go back... oh and take advantage of being next to an oyster farm.

Was clean and tidy just missing a few essentials like salt and pepper, handee towels and only had 3 end of roll toilet paper so had to purchase all of the above. Also the BBQ ran out of gas. We still enjoyed our break thanks.
