From the apartment we could walk anywhere in Russell. It was very quiet, private and clean. We voted the shower 10/10!! We appreciated the salt, pepper and paper towels provided. Also the nice big plunger for coffee. Nice outdoor furniture on the deck. It was very hot at the time and we appreciated the aircon. There is an excellent bakery nearby and a large 4 Square Supermarket. Undercover, secure parking is provided. We had a view of the museum on one side and the historic church on the other. The location is one block back from the shorefront so no sea views, but we preferred the peace and privacy of this location.
