The property

A stylish stay with all the modern comforts and conveniences, The Retreat at Tapeka Point is only minutes from the heart of historic Russell and offers the perfect destination for exploring the beautiful Bay of Islands. Set between two beaches and nestled in the friendly Tapeka community, this brilliant location offers easterly sea views across the popular snorkeling beach at Rocky Bay Reserve. To the west there is a boat ramp and long sandy beach at Tapeka Point, providing more options for safe swimming and fishing. This indulgent accommodation has been carefully decorated to create a warm, welcoming and chic space to call home. Catch yourself sitting out on the outdoor lounge suite on the top balcony, admiring the ocean views while you read a good book or sip a glass of wine. The contemporary must-haves are on site, including unlimited WiFi, a TV with Chromecast and Freeview. Retreat at Tapeka Point sleeps up to eight guests with four bedrooms across two storeys. Each bedroom is elegant and well-furnished, offering the ideal place to rest your head at the end of each day. You're in a prime location here, just a five-minute drive to picturesque Long Beach for days spent down on the sand enjoying this lovely area. The Okiato to Russell track is a scenic and pleasant walk along the waterfront and through native bush and wetland flats. Keen walkers can complete the trail in half a day, or stroll a shorter stretch, stopping at a cafe along the way! You can take a ferry to the treaty grounds at Waitangi, or Paihia across the bay, or sign up for any of the large range of activities available in the beautiful Bay of Islands. The gorgeous Paroa Bay Winery is within driving distance if wine tasting is up your alley, or the Omata Estate Boutique Winery for a slightly more casual, but no less scrumptious experience. Check out historic Russell, New Zealand's first capital, and get immersed in the heritage and history of Aotearoa with a visit to Russell Museum or the iconic Pompallier Mission and Printery. Indulge yourself in the thriving retail scene, and dine out in style or simplicity on the waterfront. A special find with a touch of Kiwi magic awaits, here at the Retreat at Tapeka Point!

Please note a bond may be charged at certain times of the year. One of our team members will contact you if this is required for your booking.

About the location

Often described as the jewel of the north, the Bay of Islands offers beautiful scenes full of blue seas, hidden coves and native wildlife. Paihia is the go to destination to tick off a few of those bucket list items such as swimming with the dolphins, going through the 'hole in the rock', cruising around the many idyllic islands by boat or yacht, deep sea game fishing, visiting the historic Maori site Waitangi Treaty Grounds, or catching an aerial view of the area by parasail! A short 15-minute ferry trip across the harbor and you'll find yourself in Russell- a charming seaside village; drenched in history and bustling with art galleries, eateries and gorgeous views. All of our Bay of Islands holiday homes are pre-inspected prior to your arrival and are ready for instant online booking.
