Tranquil waterfront escape with gorgeous views & a touch of history

Waterfront Russell holiday home in Te Wahapu with kitchen
Cedar Lodge is located in historic Te Wahapu. Just 10 minutes drive from Russell township. The Property goes all the way to the waterfront and beach below and is just 40 metres away from the house via stairs.

The house is set among mature native trees and boasts beautiful panoramic views out over Te Wahapu Bay from all areas.

The house is on 3 levels (with staircases to each level) with 2 bedrooms and a bathroom on the top floor, the living areas and master bedroom and ensuite on the main floor and then a private third bedroom on the lower floor. Because of this layout the house is a perfect base for not only a family or group of friends but also ideal for a couple who wish to just get away from it all.

There are 2 living/dining areas, which both have their own fireplace. 1 indoor with a woodburner for winter heating, and 1 covered outdoor with a large open fire for those evening debrief sessions following a busy day at the beach or exploring further afield. There is also outdoor dining on the large front deck for taking in the gorgeous views all day long.

The kitchen is fully equipped with plenty of space for enjoying at home catering and the BBQ is close by for those Kiwi classic meals.

Kayaks are available by prior arrangement.

Car parking is on the driveway with room for 2 cars (maximum). Please note the driveway is very steep and parking is best accessed by reversing in.

Due to the layout of the interior we are unable to accept young children (under age 6) sorry.

Please note the listing is for a maximum 6 guests only. Should you wish to bring more than this number please enquire for prior approval (Additional costs apply)

Should you be unable to travel for your confirmed booking due to a Covid-19 level change we will happily rebook your dates to a suitable time in the future at no extra charge and can do so as many times as needed

5/5 Excellent

Autumn Break
Property was lovely but just a few minor faults, the showers were hard to control the temp plus there was very little water pressure. Also the lighting in the main room was slightly dim, other than that it was a fab place.
