  • The property is well equipped from bed, bath and kitchen

    The property is well equipped from bed, bath and kitchen. Great location, very near to shops and to beach. Great deck to relax and enjoy the afternoon sun. We would have liked a bigger TV and better sound output as we had to turn the volume all the way up to hear properly. The property was fantastic otherwise. Thank you

    Owner/manager responds:

    Thanks for your feedback. I think the sound output issue is that both the Sky and the tv volumes can be adjusted. I have tested it out and is working fine. :)

    What a great place! A short walk to the beach, a few minutes from Raglan's famous points, and the bach itself is a model of comfort and relaxation. Really excellent, thank you.
