The Bay of Islands – Summer views, Russell

Sage Restaurant, Paroa Bay
The newly-opened Sage Restaurant at Paroa Bay is definitely worth a visit this summer.  The stunning, purpose-built restaurant captures elevated views, which layer from land to sea. The building is luxuriously finished.  There is dining indoors and out, with a vast deck area on which to soak in the views. An Italian menu has been chosen to complement the wine selection from Paroa Bay Winery.  Chef Caesar is in charge of the kitchen offering dishes such as pan-fried gamefish in the ‘Insalata Con Fave & Pesce’ and the Dolci delights such as ‘Gelato’ and ‘Tiramisu’. Paroa Bay is an easy, sealed drive, approximately 12km from Russell.

The Bay of Islands – Summer sights

IMG_1305.JPG

Ever a popular spot to watch the sun set, Russell’s waterfront offers a spectacular view at any time of the day.  Last week, the bay was home to a number of visiting super yachts, here to compete in the Millennium Cup.  The fleet provided quite a sight on the water.  This year’s winner was Tawera – read more of The 2017 Millennium Cup results and race highlights here.

Summer is proving a busy one for the region which is welcoming visitors from around the country and the globe.  That trend appears set to continue with The Bay of Islands soon to be seen on billboards across Melbourne in an upcoming campaign by Tourism New Zealand.  The area was also the chosen location for the latest Air New Zealand safety video (Pictured below: Long Beach in the ‘Summer of Safety’)

So too, the property market continues to be very active.  We are experiencing a high level of enquiry and seeing fewer iconic coastal properties available for sale.  In times like these, property can sell before being actively marketed for sale.  Please keep in contact and let me know your latest criteria so I an keep you informed of any properties that may become available for sale.  If you are coming to the area, please arrange an appointment to view by calling me on 0212 444 888 or email charlie@luxuryrealestate.co.nz.
