Overview

About the property

Bach or holiday home, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 7)

When people first come to our home they often remark “You have a nice spot here” and now we are able to share it with you!

We are at Okiato, that’s where you get off the vehicle ferry when heading to Russell.

The section has a number of fruit trees (pear, plum, orange, mandarin, lemon, tamarillo, grape and passionfruit) and a vegetable garden, which you are most welcome to sample.

There is plenty of off street easy access parking for cars and trailers.

It’s very suitable for children. Situated at the end of a quiet no exit street, its fully fenced, has plenty of lawn, no high decks or stairs, there is a trampoline, dinghy, kayaks and a safe beach only 150 metres away down a track directly across the road. There are also games, books and DVD’s for when the “Winterless Northland” doesn’t live up to its name.

If you have a boat you can leave it on our mooring (about 200m from the house, max 11m vessell). There is a launching ramp next to the ferry landing and the dinghy and four kayaks are kept on the foreshore by the mooring.

If you like walking, the track to Russell starts just down the road, or catch the car ferry to Opua (5 mins away and only $1 for a foot passenger) and walk the track to Paihia (about 5 km). For the more adventurous, do the full circle, walk to Russell, passenger ferry to Paihia, walk to Opua, vehicle ferry back home! If you bring bikes, there is the old railway line track to Kawakawa (bikes are free on the ferry)

So after enjoying all the activities on offer, rinse off under the outdoor shower and relax in the sun or in the shade of the rimu, totara and manuka trees, or lie in a hammock while watching the birds

When you rent our home you will be met on arrival by the owner who will show you around. We will then go away on our boat but will still be in the greater Bay or Islands area should you need assistance.

We think its paradise, come and see what you think!

A little gem, very well maintained and well stocked with all things holiday makers would need.

  • 5 of 5

A little gem, very well maintained and well stocked with all things holiday makers would need. Warm, cosy, extremely comfortable and self sufficient. The fireplace and chinmera made the cold wet weather enjoyable. The table tennis and trampoline were great fun. The fruit and vege garden, a delight! Set admist lush green surroundings and with lovely sea views, Bure Masi proved to be a truly wonderful holiday destination.

Bure Masi is at the end of a quiet road.

  • 5 of 5

Bure Masi is at the end of a quiet road.It is just a few minutes from the Okiato ferry and 8 minutes drive to Russell.It is light, airy, very comfortable and well equipped as well as clean with a great view.We loved the hammocks and the beautiful garden with the bonus of fruit and vegetables which we could devour.We were lucky to enjoy the cherry tomatoes, carrots, pears, herbs and guavas.We particularly enjoyed messing around in and on the water with the kayaks.It was brilliant and we had fun!

Great location for us in a quiet residential area with lovely view across the bay.

  • 5 of 5

Great location for us in a quiet residential area with lovely view across the bay. Plenty of shops and restaurants available in Russell which was a ten minute drive away. The property was perfect for the two of us, though it would easily accommodate six. Comfy bed, comfy seating and lovely outdoor space. The house was well equipped and everything worked. It was spotlessly clean. We would love to visit again.
