Enjoying a peaceful position in The Bay of Islands, Waterfront Bach is a 2 bedroom Okiato bach. This cute and cosy getaway is less than a 10 minute drive from Russell township, and just a 2 minute walk from the ferry to Opua!

Located on a private section, this Okiato bach includes laid back open plan living. Kick back on the window seat and watch the boats in the bay, or fire up the BBQ and dine on the deck with tranquil vistas...

Bedroom 1 at this Okiato holiday home is fitted with a queen bed, while bedroom 2 has a single bunk set.

All the basics are on hand for a fuss free stay in the far north - relax and do nothing at all, or set out on adventure. Take a ferry trip to Opua and make your way up to Paihia where you can enjoy walks along the beach, or head to Cape Rienga, 90 Mile Beach, or cruise the Hole in the Rock.

Whether you are after relaxation or adventure, Waterfront Bach has you covered!

Bachcare were fantastic to deal with!!! Easy to get hold of, great people to talk to over the phone, and didn't charge more than the advertised nightly rate like another similar company does. If you stay in Russell and are lucky enough to have Lorna as your property Manager, you will be very well looked after indeed!!!!

Charming little Bach! We really enjoyed our stay. Close to the Okiato/Opua car ferry which was handy and lovely to sit on the deck watching the boats go by. The kids loved the boat graveyard on the property.

This is such a hidden gem of a bach, beautiful view of the harbour from the deck and has everything you need for a relaxing getaway. Was great to have use of kayaks and life jackets and being able to launch them from the private bay down below the house. Will definitely recommend to friends and family.

Great property with wonderful views and very peaceful vibe. Loved waking up and seeing the boats in the harbour, sitting in the window seat to enjoy a book and using the full stocked kitchen for cooking.

We love this batch, it has everything we need, we are there 100% for the view, the privacy, the fishing off the beach and having our dogs with us. This is a simple humble batch, suits us down to the ground.
