Lifted up above the treetops, on the hillside, capturing spectacular views of the surrounding scenery and glistening harbour - waiting to host your stay is Te Maiki Retreat.

Wake up and sip a freshly brewed coffee from the machine out on the sundeck overlooking the water, spend your days watching the boats turn with the tide and feel the stress melt away.

This elevated villa, with WiFi, comes with 3-bedrooms spread across two levels, and a wide-open living area that effortlessly flows out to the stunning views and sundeck for outdoor living.

Imagine sun-drenched holidays with ice-cold drinks and a good book relaxing with this amazing backdrop, make sure to get a good snap or two. Or when you get home after a day exploring, fire up the BBQ and spend your warm evenings dining alfresco. During the colder months - get cosy and throw on a DVD.

Te Maiki Retreat is located just a 5-minute walk into the village centre, where you'll find the 4 Square, cafes and the historic hotel. Newports Chocolate shop is a must for anyone wanting to indulge their sweet tooth.

The Russell wharf is also a short walk from your doorstep from where many local attractions depart, including boat charters of all kinds, fishing, Bay of Islands cruises, dolphin and whale watching and parasailing. The best way to experience this beautiful region is from the water!

With views like this and easy-going holiday living - Welcome to Te Maiki Retreat.

Guest reviews for Te Maiki Retreat

We encourage reviews. Our review policy.
Stayed June 2022

We had a superb family getaway in Te Maiki Retreat. Perfect for our four kids and us. Spectacular views, warm & cozy, everything we required and so close to all the special Bay of Islands activities. Would definitely return!!

Stayed April 2022

Great property and location. Yes it's a bit old - you can feel it when someone goes up the stairs or the washing machine spins - but views are fab, nice and clean and well appointed. Except the lack of hairdryer though - please remedy this! Thanks for supplying some washing liquid though :)

Stayed April 2022

this is a special property with spectacular views within the picturesque town of Russell in the Bay of Islands. Some attention to updating some bedding and making sure the property is properly stocked with normal kitchen utensils would make Villa 6 even more attractive.

Stayed March 2022

A comfortable house, with an absolutely great view, (well worth a 3 min walk up the hill) while still being very close to town. I'd happily stay here again!

Stayed January 2022

Best view in Russell, very short walk from town (despite being up hill). All bedrooms and rooms are as in pictures. Easy to check in and check out

Stayed July 2021

Very comfortable and conveniently located villa with a great outlook over Russell and the bay.

Stayed April 2021

Magnificent views make up for fairly basic house. Comfy beds.

Stayed April 2021

very nice view, compact but has everything.

Stayed January 2021

We had an excellent 5 night stay as a family with two young children. As advertised, the balcony requires close supervision of children but views of the boats and bays are amazing. Our children used the two downstairs bedrooms which were dark and quiet, while the adults stayed upstairs on the mezzanine floor. The house was clean and tidy and an excellent price. We would stay here again. Thanks.

Stayed November 2020

2 words. That view!

Stayed October 2020

Stunning views and location. Villa is comfortable but has aged decor. People should be wary with young children as the deck is old and balustrade is extremely unstable and far too low as villa is at least 2 metres off the ground on front of deck.

Stayed October 2020

This place is amazing and well worth booking. The view is just beautiful and I would sit on the deck all day if I could.

Stayed August 2020

A truly relaxing and wonderful place to stay. The property is lovely and clean, magnificent views and close to the Russell township.
