We stayed in this wonderful Bach for 5 nights and had a great time. Awesome views and the kids loved catching the ferry which was right at our doorstep.
GraceStayed March 2022
The home was so clean but I don't believe it makes clear how loud the road noise and boat noise is - its situated directly above the ferry boat wharf and gets loud traffic/boat noise from 6am till 10pm. Also the home was very very very musty smelling which was uninviting. Apart from these two issues the place was neat and tidy. The location is ideal if your traveling round the Bay of Islands but isn't very peaceful if your to spend time at this house.
Thank you for your feedback Grace and we're sorry the noise impacted your stay with us here. Given the property's central location with the ferry right on the doorstep, there is naturally going to be some noise. We are investigating the musty smell with the local team on the ground to ensure it is resolved for future guests.

The Tides is a terrific bach for a family or 2 couples . Right at the ferry you can either zip across to Opua , Piahia or do the 10 min drive to Russell. Well appointed - warm enough for a winter stay with great deck outside to sit and have your sundowners and watch the boating traffic in Opua. Great spot - we will be back.

Great spot, tidy, and great indoor / outdoor living. Stunning view and very comfortable, recently renovated amenities. Great layout for multiple guests. The car ferry noise is noticeable from early (circa 6am) til late (10pm) even with doors and windows shut. However being so close to the ferry allowed for extremely easy transport.
