A great spot to relax and enjoy the Bay of Islands. The house is clean, spacious, well-equipped, comfortable and has great views! Maureen and Ron are wonderful hosts!! Tapeka Point is a quiet neighborhood but only 5 minutes from Russell's restaurants and shops. You can walk to two beaches or take a hike up the Tapeka Track for a 360...

We completed a five week honeymoon in New Zealand at Villa du Fresne. Maureen and Ron greeted us warmly upon arrival (bubbly in celebration of our recent marriage) and carefully showed us all the fantastic features and amenities of "our house" for our 4 day stay. Maureen looked after our needs and was always helpful in keeping us stocked for...

We stayed here as two couples (husband & I, and my parents) for 7 nights. Great holiday house in a great location. Hosts Maureen and Ron couldn't have done more to make us feel more welcome; from texting us whilst we were driving from Auckland to ensure we took the correct turnoffs to get there, to welcoming us on arrival...

We stayed at Villa du Fresne in mid-December, our hosts Ron and Maureen were wonderful. We arrived to be greeted by a Canadian flag flying on the flagpole - the Canadians were in residence! Maureen baked gluten free chocolate chip cookies for my niece, such kindness on her part and a welcome treat for all of us. The views from...

Maureen and Ron were wonderful hosts. The place has everything you need and sweeping seaviews to die for. Wake up in the morning to the warm morning sun and make sure you have breakfast in the conservatory. Watch out for seabirds and local weka (a curious native NZ bird) strolling across the lawn! 5min drive to Russell township. Would love...

Villa du Fresne is definitely not your average B&B. You feel that you have the whole home to yourselves, but actually the owners are on the property too, but totally let you have your privacy. Maureen and Ron are wonderful people who have furnished this lovely home as if it is your own private home. The home truly has a...

The most enjoyable few days ever in the (discreet) company of two of the nicest people. Ron and Maureen followed up their warm greeting with good advice on what to do and what to see and unstinting help with practicalities. This is the kind of service you just never get in a hotel. Plus of course a prime location of...

Panoramic uninterrupted views across the Bay of Islands from Tapeka Point to Cape Brett and the Hole in the Rock. Ever changing weather patterns and light, direct access to a rocky beach and a 10 metre walk to a smooth sandy swimming beach. Just sit and soak up the ambiance or drive into charming Russell for an evening meal or...

Myself and my partner absolutely loved our stay here. Maureen and Ron were so kind, caring and helpful and really made our stay special.

Stayed there many years ago for a couple nights. Owners were excellent and very keen to ensure we had a wonderful stay. Little way out of Russell which was not an issue as we had a car Very quiet Views to die for.

“There is only one "room" it's the villa "house" itself. Great views from bedroom and living room.”
