Bay Of Islands Beach HouseLoft
Studio | No Bedrooms | sleeps 2
Contemporary Sub-Tropical Beachfront Hideaway nestled in a Bali Hai Garden setting, perfect for the couple seeking a private romantic getaway. The warm and sheltered north facing aspect , with lovely views of Russell, makes for comfortable deck lounging year 'round.
The surrounding bays offer some of the most protected paddling in New Zealand and a well stocked boat house will provide the right toy for the kayak fisherman or any level of Stand Up Paddler. Yoga lovers will also enjoy practicing from the sunny decks, Asian covered gazebo or private beach side patio. Hikers will love the exploration along coastal trails, boardwalks and nikau forest bush walks leading right from your doorstep.
Photographers dream of having such a venue for capturing the many moods of the Bay Of Islands, whether shooting the yacht races from the deck, filming the array of colors in the tropical garden, or playing with evening harbor lights reflecting off the bay. Caution: sunrises and sunsets may cause inspirational overload!
The Loft is a newly constructed, upmarket 38 sq. meter luxury queen studio with a full kitchenette and en suite. Walk through the lush garden 60 paces to the private swimming beach and patio where you can enjoy lazy afternoons with buckets of beer and BBQ'd snapper. Get the morning glass and paddle across the bay to the village of Russell for morning coffee and newspaper.
Try out the gazebo/lounge with comfy Adirondack chairs, WiFi and a Weber Gas BBQ. Along with the organic veggie/lettuce garden, you'll have fragrant Jasmine and Brugmansia in the early morning and evening for your olfactory pleasure! Seasonal specials may include use off Hot Springs Spa. Check with owner.

"Our visit in May 2014 was a vacation my wife and I will never forget"
My wife and I cannot begin to thank Al & Cindy Pagel enough for for helping make our visit to New Zealand one of the best holidays we have ever taken. Our accommodations at the house were great and very comfortable. The views were absolutely breathtaking and we loved the Jacuzzi and evening BBQ's.
I am an avid photographer and I took advantage of a 2 day Photo Tour with Al. After seeing his photographs I felt lucky to learn some of his secrets of photography. His photographs are really outstanding and I learned so much. The photos I took at some very special secret spots, that Al took me to, are now proudly displayed on the wall at our home.
We highly recommend this fantastic getaway.
