You will enjoy exclusive use in total privacy. Breathtaking unobstructed 270 degree views extend from Waitangi out into the Bay. There is no road between the Crib and beach, no traffic noise and no tourists walking past. Relax on the covered verandah or outside in the sun on a bean bag. Leave your towel behind as the all tide swimming beach and diving pontoon is only a few steps away. Enjoy a HOT outdoor shower when you return. Air conditioned for year round comfort. Tapeka Beach Bach has a full kitchen if you wish to self-cater, collect a take out, use the BBQ or enjoy a romantic meal on the Russell waterfront, just two minutes away.

Single kayak, double kayak, dinghy to explore the point and secluded bays. Relax under the surround veranda or in the sun on a cape cod chair, bean bags or deck chairs The location, position, views and nearby attractions are unequalled. Please read the reviews PLEASE NOTE - a new beach house being constructed on an adjacent lot may create a week day noise nuisance mid July - mid November 2017More

About the neighbourhood
Tapeka is a small community of mainly holiday homes and retirees on a peninsular with water either side. This is a private location with no passing traffic noise as the road ends at Tapeka. The area is very secure and safe for children to wander nearby. Russell township is just a 2 minute drive or 20 minute walk. Close to facilities but quiet and isolated from the noise and people. The sandy Tapeka Beach is right in front or 100m down the road is Rocky Beach, a stony beach looking out to the islands with access to fishing rocks around Tapeka Point and a coastline to explore.
Getting around
A car is recommended. Passenger ferries operate from Russell wharf to Paihia. There are superb walking tracks and bike hire in Russell. Tapeka del Mar is ideally situated as a base to explore Northland's many other attractions
