Stingray Retreat Waterfront

Superior Holiday Home | Waterfront Location | Tapeka Point

From this holiday home, it is possible to enjoy just being here, and there is always something different happening in the Bay of Islands or down onto the rocks. This is a great home from which to explore Russell and the wider Bay of Islands with plenty of land or sea activities for everyone.

The scene changes with the light too and always possible to see dolphins and sometimes whales just a few hundred meters away.

Stingray Retreat is tastefully renovated by a leading Interior Designer, to add to the already superb setting. This house has an airy feel about it, with all by-folding doors along the front of the main living area, open plan lounge dining modern kitchen, expansive deck out front, with Spa pool to one side, to further enjoy the views.

For the cooler nights use the open fire, and now to give the house even more comfort we have installed a heat pump. This works in reverse to cool you down, during the hot summer nights.

At one end of the house is the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and outdoor shower. At the other end is another king bedroom plus a twin bedroom, serviced by another bathroom. Also as this end of the house is an entertainment room and even an exercycle for those who are missing their gym workout!

Safe swimming beach one minute away. Russell 2 minutes by car, with lots of restaurants, shops, dolphins, dive, and sightseeing tours in the Bay of Islands etc.

Two beaches within 1 minutes’ walk and fishing off rocks below Fish filleting station.

SPECIAL CONDITIONS: For your comfort the house is pet free and is a non-smoking property. ​The property is not suitable for a boat.

**Please note that the property is on the cliff edge so it is not suitable for young children**

No gathering/parties or unauthorized/additional persons staying at the property, this will breach the rental conditions and you may be asked to depart the property. Our general Terms & Conditions apply.
