Welcome to Ounuwhao Harding House

Ounuwhao Harding House – Bed and Breakfast Bay of Islands

Indulge in luxurious, seaside accommodation at Ounuwhao.

Bed and Breakfast Bay of IslandsLiz and Gordon, your hosts at Ounuwhao are located alongside a grassed reserve bordered by century-old Norfolk pines, opposite picturesque Matauwhi Bay – a favourite mooring-place for yachts. Ounuwhao is a short two-minute drive or a casual 10-minute level stroll to Russell village.

“Experience our historical Bed and Breakfast and enjoy a world of difference”.

We offer superior B & B accommodation in four queen rooms – all with en-suite or private bathrooms.
The two front rooms feature their own washstand and have French doors opening onto the verandah and conservatory area, with sea views.

All bathrooms are decorated with old-fashioned, hand-painted ‘Georgian’ tiles and have showers and toilets; two also have a claw-footed bath.

Staying in our guest rooms will take you back to a different era. Each room is decorated individually, with brass beds, and fresh flowers from our garden. The lodge rooms ooze charm and offer a tranquil nights sleep, whilst every attention to detail is taken care of.

Enjoy the comfortable lounge, with tea and coffee available all day, television, magazines, a wide selection of books and the daily newspaper. Relax in our guest lounge or enjoy a book or cup of tea on our wide-sweeping verandahs, in the conservatory, or surrounded by flowers in our cottage garden, whilst enjoying the ever-changing water in the bay.
