The SpaceThe view is outstanding, across the Bay to Russell. The seascape is ever changing as is the lighting. Watch yachts and cruisers come and go, cutting pathways through the blueness of the sea. It can be difficult to drag yourself away from such an amazing sight. For those musically inclined, there is a guitar (sort of kiwi tradition really). Why not immerse all of your senses. Take a walk in the garden, stop and smell the roses, find a meditation spot, or pick yourself some fresh herbs to make a cup of tea (mint is a favorite). Handpick some fruit or maybe pluck some fresh lettuce leaves, you never know what might be in season. The studio is magical and you will find yourself totally absorbed in its peacefulness and ambiance. The kitchenette has everything you need to cook a meal. There is also a colouring book and pencils for those wanting to do some mind therapy. Guest AccessThere is onsite parking (on the right beside the wishing well), or your car will be quite safe on the roadside. Its about a 5 minute drive to Paihia. If you are walker, it takes about 30 - 40 minutes to walk into Paihia. If the tide is out, you can enjoy the stroll via the coastline. Kerikeri is about a 15 minute drive away or head south for a 45 minute drive to Whangarei. There is room to park a boat if you have one. If you are a fisher person and catch a fish or two, I have the perfect little smoke house and I can prepare a secret brine - smoked fish like you have never tasted before. Interaction with GuestsI work from home (I write) and I am usually on hand and happy to answer any questions, suggest things to do and see, or if I am not busy, I'm happy to chat, or share a wine or a beer. Depending on my time, I am also happy to cook and share an evening meal, or in some cases, treat you to the best home cooked roast you have ever had, (I'm also pretty good on vegetarian dishes too if that is your calling). Again, time depending I may be able to take you on a drive to some of my favorite spots, or have a picnic at the beach, or go fishing. If you just want to be on your own, then so be it. The NeighborhoodMy neighborhood is very peaceful. My street is a cul de sac and generally the only traffic that comes down the road are locals or people who are lost. Just down the bottom of the hill by the Te Haumi Bridge is a walking track to Opua. It meanders through bush and along the beaches and is truly beautiful. Its about an 1.5 hours walk one way. Getting AroundIdeally, having a vehicle is great. However, it is a lovely walk to Paihia (about 30-40 minutes). I travel up and down to Paihia frequently so happy to take you to the supermarket so you don't have to worry about carrying groceries, etc.

Peaceful, quiet, and an outstanding view some say is priceless. The unit is very homely so you can just be yourself. Good double bed and comfy lounge area. The sofa converts to an extra bed if required. The kitchenette is fully equipped with all the basic cooking utensils you need and if I can always help out if there is anything else you need. Charcoal bbq available as well. Excellent shower in the private ensuite. Open the ranch slider and take in the view or have a wander in the garden.

The unit is downstairs from my living area and has separate access. I work from home so I am usually around if you need anything. The NeighborhoodPuketiro Place is a very quiet no exit street so not a lot of traffic or noise. My neighbors, mostly semi retired are generally around so the place is relatively secure as we all keep an eye out for each other. Getting AroundIdeally you need to have your own transport as I am about a 5-8 minute drive to Paihia. It may not sound far but there are two rather steep hills to negotiate if walking. If you don't have transport I am happy to drop you off and pick you up from Paihia, and if I am not too busy with my work I can take you on excursions to some of the local attractions.

    This fabulous luxury property is set atop a ridge which offers expansive views of the Veronica Channel. One would be hardpressed to find a more impressive view in the Bay of Islands of New Zealand. Sitting absolute waterfront, the views from both villas look out 180 degress up and down the inlet. This property is ideally situated between Pahia (5km) and Russell (1/2km to car ferry) and makes a perfect location to explore all that the Northland has to offer. Both 2 bedroom villas have large flat screen televisions, private sun decks with barbeques, fully equiped kitchens, etc. Crowsnest is ideally equiped for the long term stay as well. Including full laundry services, wireless internet access, digital television and more. Both villas, affectionately known as Bridgedeck and Sails, are relatively new and designed in a nautical theme. Each Villa enjoys bi-folding windows that open up to allow the sounds of the Tui bird to fill the rooms with their beautiful song. Watch from your bed as the bay turns from a beautiful blue in the morning to a blue-green hue in the afternoon. These villas contain everything you could ever need as you watch the sail boats make their way to open waters below. Crows Nest was designed to allow for the tension to melt away, so look us up and treat yourself to the best the Bay has to offer.

The port is bustling with incoming and outgoings yachts and sail boats. Paihia, a 5 minute drive from Opua, has activities galore. The warm currents from the equator hit the northern part of the country and results in a subtropical climate, making it an ideal winter haunt.
