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 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 whitebaiting 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, 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 so no one stays here but people still have fond memories of staying under the bach in a bygone era and have visited to be reminded of their stays here.

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.

    We really enjoyed our stay, we loved being so close to the water. The batch is situated in a lovely spot. We didn’t want to leave! The batch itself was clean and tidy, modern kitchen and bathroom. It would have been nice to have more than 4 glasses and 4 plates for a family of 5. There is only one kayak and canoe, would have been more enjoyable with more kayaks. Great place for fishing.

  • We really enjoyed our holiday at this Bach

    We really enjoyed our holiday at this Bach. Great spot away from the hustle/bustle of Raglan township. Very quiet, private setting after a drive down a private 1 km road through a farm. Looks very rustic on the outside! But comfortable beds and such a cool space to have a quiet time away. Thanks.

    We absolutely loved our stay at the Raglan Boathouse, our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer. We kayaked to the waterfall and fished from the jetty. What a gem of a spot. We will definitely be coming back!!
