Orongo Bay Homestead

45 Aucks Rd Orongo Bay Russell

Wifi Internet Access Sauna Non Smoking Carpark access

Sequestered in 15 private acres by the sea just five minutes drive from romantic and historic Russell, the heritage-listed First American Consulate (as this 1870's country house is known) offers restorative peace and calm, organic-focused cuisine, and accommodation in three en suite rooms in the architect-designed Lakeside Retreat.

Food and travel writer Michael Hooper and partner Chris Wharehinga Swannell (of Maori ancestry) prepare a "bake-house breakfast" delivered to your room, with home-baked breads and croissants, home-made conserves from their organic gardens and orchard and eggs from their free-range hens.

Central to all the activities on the water, in the wineries, and across the beaches of the bay of 144 islands, the two-storey Homestead is without pretention but generously provisioned with modern comforts, respect and attention.

At least four hours notice is required to prepare your room.
