This warm, cozy, self contained cedar cottage is for a couple and can include a child or infant. Tranquility is the key. The only noise is natures chorus of birdsong. Indoor, outdoor living enhances the style we are trying to offer. Winter rates available. We are LGBT friendly. Bring your dog and we can look after him while you enjoy this area.

Russell's place is secluded and close to nature. It is a self sufficient building and Russell kindly provided a few things for us to cook breakfast. He's a true local and has great suggestions for what to do.

Russell was a fantastic host, and we loved experiencing an eco lifestyle at out accommodation. Russell's ship building skills have clearly come in handy with a very economical and clever layout. We also found the property a great base for exploring Waitangi, Russell and beyond.
