Additional Location Information

Located at the entrance to the world famous Bay of Islands with over 140 nearby Islands. Absolute waterfront location with 180 degree panoramic beach and sea views. Two minutes from historic Russell village and 10 minutes by passenger ferry from Paihia and the historic Waitangi Treaty grounds. Historic Russell has character, charm and a relaxed atmosphere - away from the traffic noise and bustle of Paihia. Tapeka del Mar is the perfect base to take day trips exploring the many Northland towns and attractions from ancient Kauri tree forests to Cape Reinga at the northern tip of New Zealand. All major boat trips including the "Hole in the Rock", "Swim with the Dolphins", "Mac Attack" speed boat, fishing trips and tall ship day sailing depart locally from nearby Russell wharf. The area also boasts a natural Kiwi habitat, native bird life and numerous walking tracks to explore. The Bay of Islands is also world famous for big game fishing and clear water diving. This is a private location with no passing traffic noise or road between the house and beach - yet close to Russell township, services, shops, restaurants and numerous attractions. Sit back in the living room or the large outdoor living area and watch the constant parade of passing vessels and magical sunsets. The Bay of Islands is just over 3 hours drive north of Auckland. The combination of location, views, facilities and attractions is unequalled. Tapeka del Mar is your opportunity to experience Kiwi beach living at its best
