  • The Water Front House is absolute water front, on Raglan's beautiful inner harbour.
  • This self contained two storied, five bedroom house has stunning water and mountain views.
  • Located in a quiet street, yet only 1 mins walk from Raglan town centre, cafes, and swimming beach.

This large home has fantastic views from upstairs and downstairs. The master bedroom opens onto deck over looking the sea. Located right in town, but on a quiet street, everything is within walking distance, including cafes, art galleries, the beach, and the new park area with skate park, jungle gym, basketball and bmx track.

Please note the house is not available to book from October-April.

All bedrooms have oil heaters in the rooms, though the wood fire does heat the house nicely.

The lounge and dining area open onto the front deck looking out to the harbour and Karioi mountain, perfect to catch the westcoast sunsets.

The house is fully equipped with all you need for a great stay including all bed linens, full kitchen, log fire (with plenty of wood), bbq, 42" flatscreen TV, DVD player (& DVDs), stereo. And you have parking right in front of the house on the coastal reserve.

There is one large bathroom with two showers. Also two separate toilets in their own rooms, one upstairs, one down.

This house is adjacent to our small backpackers hostel, so as our guest you have free use of the sauna, spa pool, bikes, kayaks, and stand up paddle boards. We also have a full range of surf gear available for hire. Kayaks can be launched off the front lawn, surf lessons can be organised upon request. The infrared sauna or hot spa pool are great for evening relaxation!

Raglan's harbour has several lovely swimming beaches, all within minutes walk of the house. You can walk for 6 km along the sandy beach which is starts right around the corner from the house.

The Water Front house is a great base from which to explore Raglan, and a wonderful house to relax in.

Special conditions: Smoking outside, balcony off the seaview room. Pets possible with prior approval only (call or email to discuss) We take a damage deposit, which is refundable if the house is left in a clean and tidy condition (ie dishes done, rubbish in bins, but you don't have to clean the bathrooms or re-make beds!), and no damage to the property or fixtures.

    A great find for our three families, perfect location, free toys to enjoy the water, lots of space in the property which was constantly warm with the log fire. Wish this was available as a Bach in summer too!

  • This place was amazing, friendly greeting and we wanted for nothing

    This place was amazing, friendly greeting and we wanted for nothing. We couldn't believe how immaculate and clean the house was and perfect for our needs. We had such a great relaxing stay and the best location in Raglan.
