Fabulous views over the Russell and the bay.
So close to shops, cafes, restaurants, and the waterfront.

Welcome to Te Manaaki

Te Manaaki is a superbly appointed self-catering holiday rental property in the Heritage Zone of Russell in the Bay of Islands, with beautiful views of the Bay and within a few minutes’ walk of Russell’s shops, cafés, restaurants, and waterfront.

Discover Russell‘s unique heritage and explore the unspoiled marine playground, whether walking, exploring, adventuring, fishing, sailing or diving around the Bay’s 150 islands. Alternatively, just relax and enjoy the luxury and tranquillity that Te Manaaki’s house or villa have to offer.

Manaaki is a Maori value that means to look after and care for both people and the natural environment. We look forward to welcoming you to Te Manaaki.
