Surrounded by water and bush and with an island-like feel, this family-oriented house is a superb get-away-from-it-all luxury holiday home. It's a very private retreat set on ¾ of an acre with water on two sides.

We designed this house for friends to get together. The fixtures and furnishings are of high quality and there is a modern open plan living area with a great indoor-outdoor flow.

By day, the house is a fun place for kids to have adventures among the trees down to the water's edge or play cricket on the lawn. The kitchen is ideal for cooking and entertaining and has a large family-sized oven. It is fully equipped to cater for 8 to 10 people.

In the evenings we cook, read, listen to music, write, or play board games (many games supplied). The house is a retreat so there is no TV. If you want SKY Sports, then it is a short walk to the pub and restaurants in town.


Master bedroom has a super-king bed and a luxury en-suite with romantic double-bath and a Balinese outlook onto bush.

Second Master bedroom has a queen sized bed and waterfront view.

Second bathroom has bath and shower.

There's also an outside shower for alfresco fun.

Bedrooms three and four have twin beds that can be converted to doubles.

Separate rumpus room means kids can play away from adults, or it can be used as a 5th basic bedroom (sofa bed only).

Great location for discovering Raglan:

5min drive or 15 minute walk to town for restaurants, shops and the beach.

Skatepark is 15 minute walk for kids.

Golf course and surf beaches are a short drive.

Two kayaks are included: 1x two-man and 1x kids.

Plenty of nearby beach and bush walks.

Parking for 3 vehicles or a boat behind a lockable gate.

Suitable for children under 5 years.

Special conditions: Getting there is half the fun. The driveway is part of the adventure–it goes under water at the top of high tide but a footbridge provides 24/7 access. Price shown above is for four people per night. $50 for each additional person including children. Pets by special agreement only.

    Idyllic location with an exciting approach across the causeway, if a little hairy! The house is spacious, clean, fabulous layout with everything you could possibly need. The kayaks were an added bonus.

    It is a stunning location and a stunning bach, obviously a bit more expensive than the rest but justified in the fit and finish, the down filled pillows and duvets, the luxury showers and large baths and spacious open plan living area. The crossing over the ford was a but of an adventure as we were a little impatient and didn't wait for the waters to fully subside! Still, we made it in one piece!! The only thing that would be nice is WiFi but ultimately meant we just enjoyed our company
