Wendees Beach House at Raglan

 Lovely bach with everything you need for a relaxing stay. Great backyard with loads of room for kids to play. House is very spacious and tidy, loved our stay here and would return again.

Retro Bach - Private, with Harbour Views

 Great location. It felt like how a bach of my childhood was. Loved the record collection and we spent an enjoyable wet afternoon trying to recall the songs of our teenage years. Plenty of room for the 8 adults that stayed on the first night. 

Retro Bach - Private, with Harbour Views

 Gorgeous outlook - I could sit all day in the sundrenched lounge watching the weather and the harbour. Easy walk to town and very close to wharf (gourmet fish & chips yum!). House is decked out with gorgeous retro furniture and crockery - is basic but pleasant. Shower is endlessly hot with good pressure. kitchen capable of cooking a roast meal for 6 no worries. Only negative was it needs a spring clean & smelled a bit musty. overall very pleasant - Great for a group.

The Waterfront House

 Perfect location with a very short stroll to the shops and beach. Great food at the local pub too. The place was perfect for a weekend away and the facilities on offer were great. Great staff at the neighbouring backpackers who were friendly and very helpful. Only thing to note is there is no tv channels..however not so bad in reality. Meant you had to talk and read instead. Highly recommend!
