Taniwha Landing, Tirairaka Terrace, Russell (Bachcare)

An old-world style treasure with all the modern comforts of home, Taniwha Landing is a beautifully renovated villa overlooking Okiato Bay. 

Sitting on a large half acre of land, there's plenty of room to run and play at Taniwha Landing, or sit under dappled shade and enjoy a private picnic. Pet-friendly too, your furry friend will love exploring this slice of paradise. 

Taniwha Landing sleeps up to six across three bedrooms and has plenty of room for the whole family to relax and enjoy their trip to the Far North. There's space to park the boat for days out on the water, or simply admire the sparkling bay from the comfort of the deck with a good book in hand!

Maintaining its heritage charm, Taniwha Landing also has Wi-Fi, cell reception and a Smart TV with Netflix, to ensure you can stay connected to the "real world!" With views this good though, you'll want to spend all your time soaking up the sunshine and exploring. 

You're in a prime location in Okiato, or Old Russell (fun fact - also NZ's first national capital in 1840). Taniwha Landing is just a 5-minute walk to the Okiato ferry terminal, where the Bay of Islands car ferry runs from Opua, and an 8-minute drive to Russell town centre and Matauwhi Bay Recreational Reserve. 

The Okiato to Russell track is a scenic and pleasant walk along the waterfront and through native bush and wetland flats. Keen walkers can complete the trail in half a day, or stroll a shorter stretch, stopping at a cafe along the way!

A special find with a touch of Kiwi magic, welcome to Taniwha Landing!
