    “Excellent location.”

    It was exactly what we needed for a getaway as a family with three school aged children.

This Russell holiday home is situated at Tapeka Peninsula, Wharepekapeka is just a 2 kilometre drive from Russell and 10 kilometres to the car ferry which transports to Opua in Paihia. This Russell Accommodation is a lovely place for a couple or small family to spend their days enjoying the hot summer sun. It looks out to Sandy Bay and the reserve. String up your hammock on the deck, lie back and watch as the tourist boats and sailboats drift past in the morning and return in the evening... What could be more relaxing? Just cross the road to a flat reserve where the kids can run free next to the safe sandy beach of Sandy Bay. On the other side of the peninsula is Rocky Bay, a pebble beach perfect for surfing and snorkelling. Wharepekapeka is cool in the summer and keeps warm in the winter time. This Russell holiday home has space to park your campervan or your boat. With 2 boat ramps within 2 kilometres from Wharepekapeka, you are spoilt for choice. Take the kids to Russell, they can be entertained at the school playground while the adults go to the shops or enjoy a cup of coffee.

BBQ is a Weber charcoal BBQ.

Property access is flat, but it is via shared driveway and there is sufficient off-street parking to fit 3 cars.

Please note that there is only one single bunk set and one single bed in Bedroom 2 (currently picture of bedroom 2 shows two single bunk sets).

As the property has unfenced access to the beach and a nearby stream, adults should closely supervise young children while outside to ensure they are safe around water
