  • Cosy cottage in tranquil, private, bush setting.

  • Continue down through the bush to access a secluded beach and world famous surf break.

This unique property is set amongst 4.5 acres covered mostly in native bush located in the Manu Bay Costal Reserve area. Flourishing bird life includes Tui, Kereru, Fantails and Warblers nesting in surrounding trees. Bird song can be heard throughout the day especially at dawn.

Laze around enjoying amazing ocean views from the cottage or explore private bush tracks down to streams and ocean. Visit Raglan's main surf beach (surf patrolled) 20 minute walk or 5 minutes by car. Also in the area there are surf breaks, surf lessons, boat ramp (1 km away) yoga classes, golf course or sample a range of cafes, bars, shopping and entertainment all available in nearby Raglan village just 7 kms away.

This haven is ideal for couples as a romantic getaway or for family/friends looking for a special experience.

There is one other house located on the block, out of sight so your stay here will be private.

Special conditions: Respect the environment-Respect the animal life-Smoking outside-No parties Note: Stairs to loft bedroom are steep. Some parts of the bush track are steep but manageable by people of moderate fitness. There are large rocks on the beach. (my 80 and 75 year old in laws can manage these).

    Perfect little bach for our weekend away...fantastic outlook. We spent ages sitting on the porch with blankets wrapped around, cups of steaming hot coffee while watching the native birds flit around us...magic

    The area was very private & quiet which was exactly what we were looking for. The cottage was cosy and we felt very comfortable throughout our stay. Such a fantastic Batch great for clearing your head and escaping from the city. The surfing beach is not too far away and a great spot for surfing! :)
