HORIZON SURF LODGE - family beach house

 You can hear the waves from your bedroom, it is amazingly well equipped and a funky pad. It is far enough out of town to really feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. 

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.
