Interaction with guests
While we live next door, 100 mtrs away, your privacy is paramount to us - if you need assistance we're here for you otherwise we let you just get on with it. The heated swimming pool is by our house but when you come over we shut our curtains if we're home (we are usually out on the golf course!)

Easy to understand directions led us to Waikare Cove. Plenty of space in this house for the 6 adults. We loved the outside space with the new spa pool and enjoyed looking around the garden with various fruit and pine trees. The large BBQ meant...More

The location was superb. We love the view. the house was well presented. It has everything we need. Very convenient. We enjoyed our stay there. Kids love the fact that they can bike, swim, play basketball, darts and pingpong. We definitely will visit again!

About the neighbourhood
Russell is one of the premiere tourist destinations in New Zealand. It was the first capital of NZ often referred to as the 'Hell Hole of the Pacific' due to the fractious whaler community and one of the reasons the Treaty of Waitangi was sighed with the Maori in the first place. Its a lot calmer nowdays and often referred to as 'Romantic Russell' due to all the weddings, beautiful sunsets while dining on the waterfront, and so on. Its a fisherman's delight, stunning uncrowded beaches, prime kayaking waters and for all water activities, plus a myriad of gorgeous NZ forest walks - and so much more! Ours is one of the warmest winter climates in New Zealand - we rarely see frosts. We grow both bananas and pineapples at our house.
Getting around
While we are a small village there is a taxi available if you've had a glorious NZ wine at dinner. Everything is accessible by car on the peninsula - or bike for that matter and we offer you two for your stay. We have a museum, cafes and restaurants, hairdressers, shops, medical clinic, fishing charters, tour boats, swimming with the dolphins, and so on. At Waitangi 9 kms away, there is the wonderful, historic marae (Maori meeting house), museum, gigantic waka (early style oceangoing canoe), the Waitangi mountain bike park, beautiful golf course and so on.
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Kerikeri: 20.0 km
If arriving at the Auckland International airport you will no doubt have a rental car lined up. Drive across Auckland and key in Opua into your GPS. This takes about 3 1/2 hours drive from the airport if no traffic issues and no stops. Take the car ferry (7 minutes) to the Russell peninsula and we are not far from the landing.

Nearest Beach: 6.0 km.
