Fiddler’s Green welcomes you

casa del mar entrance gate


Your peaceful holiday accommodation by the sea received its name from the legendary sailor’s paradise, where the old salts could rest with ease, and this is how your hosts felt when they found this snug hideaway after more than 40 years of roaming the Seven Seas.

So, if you are looking for a tranquil, peaceful place to stay and enjoy your holidays, surrounded by pristine bush and water views, yet close to picturesque Russell in the Bay of Islands with its beaches, then “Fiddler’s Green” would be your choice.

Your Accommodation

You can choose from either:

Casa del Mar :  A spacious holiday retreat surrounded by trees and birdsong. View

The Cottage :  Everything you need for a comfortable stay. View

Enjoy the private sundecks, sheltered from wind and rain, the luxury spa pool under a gazebo, the lawns and picturesque gardens, full of flowers, interesting trees and birdlife.
Relax with stunning views of native bush and the tranquil waters of the inner Bay of Islands and listen to the sounds of “Morepork”- owls, Wekas and Kiwis (Russell is a Kiwi protection area) and enjoy the star-lit, peaceful nights.

The Fiddler’s Green is ideal for honeymoons or to rest from a long voyage.

We serve a gourmet breakfast (the old shellbacks would never have dreamt of) and a barbecue dinner of South American Churrasceria style on request.
