“A comfortable vacation rental with stunning panoramic views”
Reviewed 8 April 2013 for a stay in January 2013

My Wife and I stayed for 6 weeks over Jan/Feb 2013. Situated in an elevated position, this comfortable property, offers stunning panoramic views across the Bay of Islands from a large veranda which runs around two sides of the property. There is a well tended, well stocked, garden surrounding the property. With the Veranda and the Garden there is ample opportunity to find yourself a comfy shady spot protected from the excesses of sun and wind any time of day. The property has a large room which forms a common lounge/dining and cooking area. This room has large windows on two sides which enjoy panoramic views across the bay of islands, there are two large sliding doors which lead out onto the elevated veranda. The Double Bedrooms are fairly large and the bed was comfortable. There are two bath/shower rooms, the master one was particularly spacious and well equipped. There is a further studio apartment beneath the main accommodation which the owner advised that she would not let out whilst we were in residence for our long duration stay. (A thoughtful touch by the owner to give us total privacy which we really appreciated). There is a good parking area at the front of the property. The Cottage is situated in Okiato, a collection of residential properties about 9km from Russell. Russell is a charming historic township. Paihia, a short ferry crossing away, is more lively with larger hotels, shops and a very good supermarket. The surrounding areas are scenic and there are many things to see and do, but a car essential to get the most from the area. There are two good beaches within easy walking distance, but the are many many more a short car drive away, most are deserted. Beach, boat and deep sea fishing are all here. The owner, Annie Horman is a delight, ever cheerful she could not do enough for us. Her emailed communications were always prompt and helpful when we were booking. She was waiting on the doorstep to greet us on arrival, she took pains to fully explain the property and the surroundings to ensure that we would be comfortable in her house and get the most from our vacation experience. We would certainly consider staying at Aimeo Cottage again should we revisit the Bay of Islands in future.
