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.

  • Such a sweet place - a real gem

    Such a sweet place - a real gem. Lovely helpful and kind hosts. We felt very welcome. Yes the bach is an old girl, but it only adds to the charm of the place and experience.

  • The most stunning location; a perfect piece of old NZ

    The most stunning location; a perfect piece of old NZ. Right on the waters edge, only 3 other houses on the beach, an ever changing landscape as the tide goes in and out....and that was all before Julie's husband brought us a fresh flounder. We will be back!

  • Loved this little bach

    Loved this little bach. It was a great quiet getaway that we needed and the surroundings made it worth it. Getting to the bach was easy once you get down the gravel road and being only 15-20mins from Raglan town was ideal. For a great escape and relaxing break this was perfect. The bach itself ticked all you need for a weekend and it's rustic look was very homely. Awesome views and surroundings.

    The bach and surroundings are just beautiful, even better than in the photos. Great space, comfy beds, well-stocked kitchen, a short trip to town, and we really appreciated the use of the kayak and canoe and life jackets. We definitely hope to come back soon!
