About this listing
Amazingly, Ounuwhao Guest House was originally built in 2 halves in 1884, and another wing was added in 1904. This exceptional residence was transported by barge from Dargaville to Matauwhi Bay, Russell in 1990 and then took 2 years to lovingly restore it to its former glory.
Completed in 1992, Ounuwhao Harding House has a history as colourful as its beautiful setting. It stands like a Queen as you come into Russell and now offers 5 beautiful suites to Bed & Breakfast guests.
This successful Bed & Breakfast home is the first to greet you as you drive into Russell. There are 5 large suites with bathrooms, guest lounge and dining room. All for the guests, and don't forget the beautiful deck that winds around 2 sides of the home.
Then upstairs, still in keeping with the Kauri wood throughout, is the owners or managers accommodation. 2 bedrooms, lounge, bathroom and kitchenette, totally private.
All tastefully designed to make you believe that you could be back in the 1800's.
A short level 1 km stroll gets you into the historic village of Russell, where you can mingle with the locals, or rub shoulders with the many tourists that keep this B&B very busy.
