  • Amazing views

    Amazing views. The set up with the outdoor furniture is that you can park under the trees during the hottest part of the day. A hairy driveway but upon advice we reversed up it and it worked!!! We have stayed here twice and will definitely be back. The place was super clean and bedding options really good. Excellent selection of dvds and books plus a well stocked kitchen in the way of cooking utensils etc. Highly recommend:)

    This property is fantastic - for the amazing sea views and access to the Wild West coast beach via native bush. Great flat area for soccer and being followed by fantails!. The cottage was private, warm, well equipped, (games and great selection of DVDs) and very clean. Easy access to Raglans fantastic restaurants/ cafes, yoga and surf school (10 mins by car). Highly recommend this special property and we will be back to enjoy the views for sure!
