Welcome to Villa Russell in the Bay of Islands, Northland, a unique boutique bed and breakfast accommodation in the oldest town in New Zealand. We your hosts, Sue and Stephen Western, have lived in many beautiful areas of New Zealand including Auckland, the Marlborough Sounds, and now finally have found our favourite place to call home, Russell. We have travelled widely and had some unusual adventures so know what travelers have come to expect when visiting this beautiful place.
Russell abounds in History being the first capital of New Zealand and Villa Russell is an elegant historic villa dating back to 1910 where records state “In 1910 two substantial villas were built.” The villa is totally constructed of Native Kauri and Rimu with Matai wooden floors.
The new guest cottage is built to the same design as the villa and both buildings have fabulous views over the bay. You will most likely be entertained by tuis, weka, wood pigeons and other native birds at breakfast, which is generally served al fresco on the verandahs to make the most of this perfect little part of New Zealand.
From the minute you wake in your superking-size bed looking out over the bay until you sit on the verandah, wine glass in hand watching our magnificent sunsets you will feel you have arrived in paradise
As an optional extra join Stephen on Kingfisher or Kama Lua for a day sailing – the most awesome way to see the Bay of Islands
