This place is lovely. The premises are beautiful with djungle-like greenery and a few friendly hens strolling around. We got the Sea Breeze Cottage which is situated next to the hosts' house. The cottage looks just like in the pictures, it is a studio so it's not too big but very cosy, and the views are gorgeous. Everything is spick...

We absolutely loved our stay at Bay of Islands Cottages, made especially pleasant by our hosts Jenny and Peter. We had two of the cottages for 7 nights during the Christmas period. Both cottages were very well appointed and included a lovely selection of CDs and books. We had wonderful views of the bay from the deck of the cottage,...

We were very lucky to find this gem. Peter and Jenny are the perfect hosts of the Bay of Island Cottages, which is situated 15 minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Russel, in a beautiful secluded spot overlooking a bay with oyster farms. The cottages are well appointed, with a decking overlooking the bay. Breakfast was outstanding and...
