Description

  • Stunning water and mountain views.
  • Private setting, surrounded by bush
  • An easy, picturesque walk to the village, or short drive to the surf beach

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.

  • Good location and nice view of the estuary

    Good location and nice view of the estuary. The bach is certainly shabby and very basic. There were a few kitchen items broken and unsafe and several things missing that would have normally been expected. Linen especially kitchen cloths etc very shabby and need replacing. Sleepout was very disappointing and we did not use this. Mouldy curtains and grubby shower.

    We loved the house, the specky views forest below all the kitchen extras and especially the visiting animals.

    Bach is in a beautiful spot; the description is accurate; driveway is perfectly suitable for 2 cars and problematic if you were thinkIng of more. Comfy as an older style NZ Bach.. don’t expect New York apartment. We had a most enjoyable stay.

    Although listed as shabby chic (and it is quite cute) the very basic bathroom let the property down. The shower floods the floor sometimes and in general I would expect more from a property asking the nightly rate as is. There is a lot of maintenance work due on the house, including several broken windows. The very strong mold smell in the sleep-out made it unusable. It is a bach which we understand, but some work needs to be done on the home.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Very sorry you didn't have the same enjoyable experience as our other guests this summer. In 7 years we have owned Point St we have never experienced a mould problem. On entering the sleep out this morning the only smell I could detect was the faint whiff of perfume. As far as I am aware there is one window with a damaged hinge which we are waiting to have repaired. As noted in guest book If the shower curtain is not all way to the wall in the corner water will splash on the floor.
