There are no views from the house, but the central location on the Russell peninsular means you can leave the car and walk. Romantic Russell village is about 10 minutes walk away. You can explore the cafes, restaurants, bars and shops on the waterfront. Kororareka Bay (Russell Beach)  is great for swimming (any tide), family picnics, lunch on the beach…. Picturesque Russell harbour is a popular mooring spot.

Nearby Matauwhi Bay is about 5 minutes walk away. Matauwhi Bay is also a popular mooring bay for local and visiting yachts, and is home for the Russell Boating Club. On the first Saturday in January every year the Russell Boating Club hosts ‘The Tall Ships’ race, followed in the evening by a huge traditional ‘hangi’ , with a live band and dancing under a marquee.

Oneroa Bay (Long Beach) is an ocean beach just a 10 minute walk over to the east side of the peninsular. The adjacent Waitata Beach is a nudy beach !  Tapeka Point is another popular ocean beach, about 5 minutes drive to the northern tip of the Russell peninsular.
