About this apartment

Set high above a canopy of native bush with tranquil views of yachts anchored in the bay below, bathed in sunshine is your own private ground floor studio, with the quaint historic village of Russell an 8-minute drive away.
Surrounded by nature you can hear Kiwi calling in the night, wake to the sound of Tui, joined by Fantails, Wood Pigeons, Tom Tits, and Weka as they go about their day.

Down a 150 meter native bush track is the beautiful secluded Pomare Bay, sheltered by giant Pohutakawa.

Uninterrupted views and ample light provide the perfect retreat for you to chill out, pause and reflect, while soaking up the comfortable contemporary surrounds that include: a spacious living area, kitchenette, TV with Netflix, WiFi, separate bedroom with Queen bed, and roomy bathroom (baths not possible due to water restrictions). Or soak up the rays on the expansive deck.

Kept to the highest standard, every effort has been made to ensure your stay is perfect with all linen provided, quality bedding, high-pressure shower over bath plus toiletries, tea & coffee making facilities, toaster, microwave, induction cooktop, Nutribullet, all crockery/cutlery/utensils, and a Webber BBQ to cater for light meals.
