    The cottage is clean and nicely presented with 3 floor levels to suit various guest needs. Location of property is ideal in a very pleasant garden setting and very conveniently close to the shore and surfing.

    What a magical location and only a walk through the garden gate to the surf. The owners are such warm and welcoming hosts - an invite for us to join them for dinner after our long drive from Wellington was gratefully accepted...and was delicious! We would happily recommend this little gem of a place to anyone visiting Raglan and hope one day to return ourselves.
