“Perfect place to celebrate our 20th anniversary!”
Reviewed 23 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

What an absolutely perfect place to experience the Bay of Islands! Cindy and Albee were great hosts - generous, friendly and well informed about the area. The kayaks were a bonus and the view from the loft was amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay and we were particularly happy with our choice of accommodation. We will definitely be back and we will definitely stay at the Bay Of Islands Beach House Loft!

“Relaxing secluded getaway, perfect way to rejuvenate after busy work days”
Reviewed 13 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We enjoyed three nights at the Beach House Loft. It was just what we needed to slow down after hectic work days and prepare the route for the rest of our New Zealand holiday. The loft is separate from the main house, quiet, clean and nicely appointed. Has wifi access and great massage shower. Being a loft, when sun shines all day (which it did while we were there) it is warm and requires no heating.

It is about 10 minutes drive from Russell township and fully self service so best to stock up on the essentials before you stop for the day. Barbecue is available to cook your own dinner or lunch, but we chose to eat out for lunch rather than have dinner.

You can be as active or sedentary as you wish. The double kayak did not get a workout while we were there but we did have walks along the little private beach.

Really we would rather keep this location a secret, but that would not be fair to owners Cindy and Al, who were delightful hosts and willing to be as helpful or as removed as you wish.

We can highly recommend this private little getaway for couples. You will not be disappointed.

“Peaceful, quiet and comfortable”
Reviewed 30 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Lovely detached cottage in a very quiet location a short walk from a nice beach. There is free access to a double kayak and paddle boards. There is a kitchen with a toaster oven. We heard kiwis calling in the middle of the night, a special trreat.The owners are US expats, very friendly and hospitable. The place is hard to find, and some of the markers mentioned on the website are missing or difficult to see. It's worth finding though, and is highly recommended.

“Peaceful and relaxing get away.”
Reviewed 19 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Fantastic property with an amazing view. Very peaceful surroundings with a lovely swimming beach at the bottom of the garden. Had use of a double kayak and also had a stab at paddle boarding with the assistance of Cindy and Al (great hosts). Wish we could of stayed longer!
