HORIZON SURF LODGE - family beach house

 Fresh, modern, inviting and well presented! It had everything we needed and a nice spa pool. The view of the sea is pretty special too. 

HORIZON SURF LODGE - family beach house

 Perfect in every way!! 

Okete Waterfront Cottage

 Beautiful location, a real 'get away from it all' place but still so close to Raglan. Great having two bathrooms, and lovely yard for kids to run around in, right at the water's edge. 

Kowhai Cottage & Studio - Fall in love with me!

 Wonderful, character filled cottage. Great location. 

Stunning ocean view barn

 Stunning house and back drop for our relaxing girls weekend! Felt like we were in a dream! Would love to come back again! Views and home was breath taking Thank you! 

HORIZON SURF LODGE - family beach house

 the gorgeous views from (almost) every window - the open floor plan on the upper level - the deck and the 'disappearing' patio doors - easy internet access - the spa was a nice touch - books and magazines and movies and music and a good sound system - a marvelously stocked kitchen - the three minute walk to the ocean - a working artist right next door - lovely Raglan was minutes away by car as was the learn-to-surf beach for us newbies - a beautiful part of the world
