Ounuwhao B&B, Russell, Bay of Islands

Ounuwhao, a hundred-year old, heart kauri homestead, was shifted to Matauwhi Bay, Russell in April 1990. Now restored, the villa ( circa 1894 ) is centrally located in Matauwhi Bay, Russell. It has been decorated in old-fashioned, Victorian-style, with traditional wallpapers and paintwork, handmade patchwork quilts, and fresh flowers to create a detailed, romantic interior.

Enjoy, wrap-around verandahs in summer, and a large Guest Lounge, with open fire, in winter. Breakfast is served in the original, farmhouse kitchen, around the antique dining table. It is an all homemade, including fresh-baked bread and preserves, muesli and fresh yogurt.

Choose from one of four, queen bed rooms in the house, each with ensuite or private bathroom, or the detached Garden Suite, with it's own verandah, overlooking the cottage garden. All bathrooms are decorated with old-fashioned, hand-painted 'Georgian' tiles and have showers and toilets; two also have a claw-footed bath.

The property is next to a grassed reserve bordered by century-old Norfolk pines, opposite Matauwhi Bay . Ounuwhao is a 10-minute walk to Russell village.
