The following is a selection of reviews posted by guests who have stayed in the cottage:
Large studio with separate bathroom. Two decks. Clean. Everything you need. Comfy, airy, great views. Nice lawn. Wekas for neighbours. We loved it.
Russell is an absolute gem and we greatly enjoyed out time here taking in the history and culture and walking the coast. The Treaty grounds and museum are a must. The whole experience was enhanced by having such a great place to stay. Spotlessly clean, stunning views, and every need catered for, including an amazingly comfortable bed. Highly recommended.

What a wonderful place. Everything is to an extremely high standard. Very comfortable, lots of little extras and the view and the location is so romantic. We stayed for a few nights in the winter and just did not want to leave this cosy Villa. However, as everything is so nearby, we obviously did, but it was such a lovely place to come home to. To the next visitors….. Enjoy!
“The cottage was a absolute beauty. Plenty of towels, a washing machine with dryer, air con, coffee and small essentials like coffee sugar etc. It is a perfect place for a couple getaway with absolute privacy. As mentioned earlier a small cooktop would be good if staying for more than a couple of days. BBQ is available not really the best for cooking and the bush out the front needs to be cut so the view can be truly enjoyed. Apart from that such a special place that we absolutely loved!!”

We appreciate feedback and now make sure the greenery in front doesn’t interrupt the view. Unfortunately local planning requirements preclude a stove, but the BBQ, electric fry pan and microwave do enable a range of cooking.
