With the Bay of Islands spread out beneath me, I counted the twinkling lights of the boats bobbing on the waters below the verandah at Crow's Nest Villas, and couldn’t imagine a nicer place to loiter as the twilight deepened. High on the hill above Opua harbour, the villas have spectacular views of the whole bay area.....

.... Both are immaculately presented with a nautical theme throughout that leaves you feeling refreshed rather than slightly queasy. There are ropes at the entrance, portholes for windows and even a 'welcome aboard' sign by the front door. The bedrooms are wrapped around with huge, unfolding French windows that face out into the blue and each has a glass wall to separate the en-suite bathrooms so that you can gaze out to the ocean as you wash. I could happily picture myself here padding around barefoot on the smooth qwilla-wood floors, flitting somewhere between the huge, comfy decks, open-planned living spaces and the yachting harbour and wharf below. Added to all this, Marj is a delightful and naturally caring person and is always at the ready to help with any queries. This is a great holiday pad that has all the necessaries, including TV, internet and a complimentary bottle of wine, to make you feel right at home... but on holiday.
