Bach by the Beach - surf, sun, cafes, bush walking and of course relaxing!

World renowned Raglan surf is either a 2 or 10 minute drive away or just relax on the beautiful black sand of Ngarunui Beach, just up over the hill. The beach is in easy walking distance of this property. The cottage enjoys all day sun with a large outside deck, great for enjoying evening meals or breakfast in the morning warmth. Warning, all day can be spent relaxing here!

There are two bedrooms inside this house with native tree/garden outlooks. Both bedrooms have a double bed and one has an extra single. There is also a caravan on site that you can rent for $60 per night. It has a double bed, cooking facilities and composting toilet. Behind the house, fully separated in the garage, there is also a self contained unit with large living space, kitchen, bathroom and double bed for $80pn. Note that these may be rented out to other guests if you do not secure it yourself. A large grassy lawn is perfect for kids to pitch a tent or pets. There is a dog kennel available.

A large permaculture garden, with chickens and a horse paddock surrounds the cottage. If Kauri horse is there, he is very friendly and will probably talk to you in the mornings. The property is five wire fenced and surrounded by establishing native bush. There is a bike in the garage that you are welcome to use at your leisure and bikes are also available for rent at the town info centre, which I recommend.

Opposite the property and just before Rock-it Cafe is the Raglan bush reserve which offers an array of beautiful walking and running tracks. The cool flowing river is a great place to take a dip on a hot day and it is a great place for dogs and kids.

Property managers are sometimes living in a separate dwelling on-site and will be popping in to check on animals etc. please enquire about this if you are concerned. As stated, the separate dwellings may also be rented out to other guests.

  • Can't recommend it at this price

    Can't recommend it at this price. The place is very cheaply appointed and quite dirty. When booked, it was falsely advertised as having a TV which was removed after enquiring about it. Everything looks tired and worn. The doors catch, the glass chipped/broken. The couch is showing significant wear. The beds aren't very comfortable. The oven is disguisting and the detergent/soap etc are all ridiculously watered down! That's just being cheap. Half the light bulbs are also missing.

    Owner/manager responds:

    The property has NEVER been advertised as having a TV as I have never had nor needed one. I am sorry that you felt so disappointed about this
