Contemporary home by the sea

 This is a fabulous place to stay, very comfortable & well equipped. There was nothing we needed that wasn't provided. It was very hot when we stayed but the house can be opened up so air flows through and doesn't get too hot inside. The house is sunny, light & bright and in a quiet area. We would definitely love to stay here again, it would be our first choice if we return to Raglan.

 What was there not to like is the question. The layout of Dougs seaside house was excellent from an open-planned kitchen and dining area with a view to enjoy through large windows or enjoy relaxing on the 2nd floor deck. A huge lounge to layback in with access to technology and big screen for the kids. The bedrooms were a good size and suited our needs. And lost for words on the million dollar view from the rooftop deck. Thanks alot Doug thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend all

 We booked this property for a large family gathering involving 17 people ranging in age from 7 to 80. It actually exceeded expectations. The kitchen was spacious & contained everything needed to prepare a gourmet feast All the rooms including bathrooms were a good size & the second TV downstairs was a bonus for the younger people. There was ample off street parking for our five cars. We really couldn't think of anything we would do to improve It.

 The house is an easy walking distance into Raglan township (15 - 20 minutes walking) and down to the wharf for fabulous fish and chips. The house had all the amenities you might need including good cooking facilities. There is plenty of space with a large living and kitchen area, plus balcony and roof terrace ie lots of room to either to get away for quiet time or to socialize. The house has a good feel about it and served our needs perfectly.

 Great property for the extended family, and great fun swimming at the surf beach.
