Reviews of Tahapuke

The most amazing place to stay

The house exceeded all expectations (which were very high) it was even better in real life than the photos! The kitchen is very well equipped and made cooking our Xmas lunch a real joy. The house is spacious and airy with a lovely calming atmosphere and breath taking views. It's a dream house! The town of Russell is just a short walk and full of good cafes and restaurants run by friendly staff.

Amazing and totally unforgettable!

We spent an amazing stay at Tahapuke. The house is exquisite, completely isolated, yet just around the corner from Russell and all its facilities. The kids enjoyed the private beach, throwing rocks for endless time! We used the kayaks that were kindly available to explore the surroundings and watch the sunsets from the sea... Amazing and totally unforgettable!

This is a very unique and private place

It is as pretty as the pictures indicate and then some. Jacqui and the team from Touch of Spice were fantastic. They communicated well, were ever present both on our arrival as well as via text message.

Great location and house!

Fantastic setting - felt very private but actually very close to town (few hundred yards). Highly recommend it. Recently renovated and very up-to-date.

What a beautiful space!

A secluded home walking distance from the lovely town of Russell. While we enjoyed many meals out, the well equipped kitchen was greatly appreciated.
