Bach or holiday home | Raglan | #32586
Amazing is also often the word used to describe this unexpected piece of paradise.
Driving from Okete Road on a metal road, you will be welcomed by native bush, hear the tui's greet you with their song and fan tails darting around you.
Sheltered on a private farm, a farm that has links to the original Raglan settlers, this stunning property which has sweeping views of the sea and surrounding rolling hills will let you unwind and relax in this traditional kiwiana Bach.
Your own personal jetty at the back door whether to launch your boat, jet ski or have use of the owners Kayak or Canadian canoe to explore the surrounding area. Kayak up the estuary to see the mesmerising Okete waterfall.
Flounder is in abundance which you could catch and cook on the same day or try your hand at white baiting in season or fishing directly off the wharf.
Sit on the deck at night with your favourite glass of wine and take in the wonders of the night sky. No light pollution allowing you to watch shooting stars and satellites orbit above you.
This Bach offers an open plan kitchen, stone bench tops alongside an original coal range.
The dining and lounge area leads from here on to the deck with expansive sea views which roll in on three sides of the Bach.
Two bedrooms, with comfortable mattresses with sink in toppers will allow you to have the relaxation you deserve.
A BBQ, Sky TV, plus laundry facilities available.
Although the Bach is two story and access is via stairs the self contained lower level still has original dirt floor so not quite the specs guests are looking for these days!
Beautiful coastal walks or adventures along the beach front and lovely safe swimming at your doorstep or endless fun jumping or fishing from the wharf.
The Bach steeped in memories and fun times.
Whether it is a romantic getaway or an action packed family holiday there is something here for everyone.
Create your own history in this adventure playground.

My partner and I really enjoyed staying at this property, it has fantastic views and great recreational equipment (Kayaks & Canoe etc). The area and location of the boathouse are extremely tranquil and great for a long weekend away. I would highly recommend the property to anyone.
It was a peaceful get away and great having the water right by you! The Bach,s exterior is run down but the internal of the Bach is modern however the main bedroom duvet needs upgrading as it's faded and stained also not suitable for swimming as its a muddy Eastry. It's a lovely place to just relax at.
Lovely Bach, would happily stay here again - being right on the beach was fantastic, the external of the Bach is older but its of no detriment to the inside which is lovely and the setting which is magical, our family had a great time.
Off the beaten track and 10 minutes out of town but you're rewarded with a stunning quiet location at the bottom of farmland. The batch itself is a charmingly presented old wooden boathouse. It has a modern fully equipped kitchen. The bedrooms are a good size. The deck and BBQ is just the ticket. You won't get much TV/Phone or internet but you can do without that for this location!
We had a wonderfully peaceful two days in this beautiful setting - a great place to wind down and restore the spirits. Thanks so much Michael for the whitebait and flounder - we really enjoyed both! Very comfortable beds, so relaxing watching the tide coming in and out, and we loved being able to kayak up to the falls and walk around the foreshore. Thank you both again - a brilliant bach and lovely neighbours!
