The Point House, looks out over Raglan’s inner harbour to Mt Karioi and can accommodate a total of eight people.

Bifold windows open onto the expansive deck bringing the striking view right into the house. Both bedrooms open onto decks along the front and side of the Bach.

The Sleep Out is a spacious open plan design with a comfortable queen bed, two singles beds and a lounge area.

The bach is situated a short 5 - 8 minute walk from the centre of Raglan. Alternatively guests can take the coastal path which follows the estuary into town. The estuary path can be accessed via the steps which start at the end of our deck.

“I bought a view…and the house came with it…” - Winston Churchill.

What a magical, tranquil sanctuary!!

Enjoy the deck with its panoramic view over Mt. Karioi and the inner harbour. Take the winding bush walk for a leisurely stroll around the water's edge. Listen to the gulls, Tui’s and Morepork’s while reading a book or flicking through a magazine.

The perfect spot for that romantic break away, or a place for the family to spend time.

The Point House is a characterful old New Zealand bach which shows its age but wears it gracefully. It is a shabby chic family bach, not a luxury resort.

  • Advertised as a quintessential kiwi bach

    Advertised as a quintessential kiwi bach. It is that but doesn't mean it cannot have some modern amenities. For a property that is advertised for 8 guests, it has a single combined toilet cum bathroom, which is totally inadequate. No toiletries provided and 2 toilet rolls for 8 people for 2 nights amounts to rock bottom service. Kitchen well past its prime, no dishwasher, and microwave dangerously placed on top of the fridge.Spring beds uncomfortable. Unjustified price for substandard property.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Hi Ravi, As explained on the weekend a new kitchen was installed this week. The bach is clearly advertised as having one bathroom. Why book if that's not going to work for you? The microwave has never been on the fridge. It resided securely on top of a kitchen cabinet for the last 6 years and is now housed under the new kitchen bench. According to the majority of our guests the beds are perfectly comfortable and having spent many nights there myself I can only agree.

    3 nights at Point house was perfect for our group (5) get together, all beds comfortable (except the hard as single so not used), the bach is charming, homely, warm with a wonderful fire and outlook, close drive to cafes, direct access to a fabulous public walkway, we all loved it and feel grateful that Chris is willing to share.

  • Great Kiwi Bach

    Great Kiwi Bach. Easy access to the estuary and town. Great bird life and the views are exceptional. If you are expecting a fully turned out high end house then this is not for you but if you want the quintessential Kiwi Bach experience then book this home. It's cozy, everything works, it's clean and just feels so darn relaxing. Napping on the sofa with the birdsong and cricket on the TV in the background is about as good as it gets.
