    Description

    1.5 acres bush in scenic reserve, with kiwi, weka, tui and other native birds, minutes away from beaches and the charming village of Russell. Your accommodation is a Tiny House with ecologically sensitive and green systems. If you'd like to spend some time in the Bay of Islands, would like your own place, do your own thing in exchange for a couple of hours work - let us know ;-)
