Description

  • Expansive views to sea, Mount Karioi, windfarm
  • All day sun
  • 3 levels of bedrooms and living

This gorgeous much-loved character holiday home of an interior designer/ art director is full of retro style yet offers all the comfort of a modern home including a cosy wood burner. It's a funky 1950's-1970's updated home, with quirky character features and a great layout. The house is elevated across three levels with decks off the living areas and 3 of the bedrooms so you can follow the sun all day, and there are views every direction you look. The top floor contains 1 king bed, a divan daybed and an ensuite. The middle floor has 2 queen bedrooms with sea and rural views and doors to decking, a well-equipped kitchen with views to mount Karioi, an 8 seater dining opening to decking overlooking the bay and a man bathroom with spa bath. There is also a large open plan living with plenty of couches, a wood-burner and opening out to north-facing under-cover outdoor patio with BBQ and big flat landscaped garden. Downstairs has two tiny bedrooms, 1 bunk and 1 king single bedroom + trundle with views of the windfarm. Perfect for everything from a romantic getaway for two to larger groups. It is well thought out with everything you need for groups or family life, for eating in, relaxing all day outside and in and sleeping well at night. Expansive views in every direction and quality comfortable furnishings, this home is about spending time with friends and family and enjoying the landscape and everything Raglan has to offer. DVDs and puzzles and some children's equipment available. Perfect town location with bay walks and everything you need 5 minutes away. Locals access to the bay at the bottom of the street walk at low tide to the wonderful wharf with shopping and infamous fish and chips. Raglan's famous surf beaches a 10-minute drive away. No TV or wifi, just good conversation (and DVDs). Please let us know the age range of your group and the purpose of your trip when you make a booking request.

  • Lovely home, very cosy and stylish

  • Beautiful house and location

    Beautiful house and location. Good quality linen, and a fire ready to light when we arrived. Well decorated with art and handmade cups etc. Clearly a loved home. The only draw back was the absence of a bbq. There is one featured in one of the outside pictures but is is not listed as one of the facilities, so a little misleading. Overall it was a great experience and I will definitely be back.

    Hi Naimh, Glad to hear you enjoyed your weekend. My apologies about the BBQ, we were in the process of replacing it and the new one arrives next weekend. So it will be ready to go when your back next time! best wishes, Megan

  • Beautiful views from the house

    Beautiful views from the house. We had 3 couples and 4 young children and the house suited us perfectly. The kids loved running round the deck and grass area. Lots of couches in the lounge area meant we could all sit comfortably and relax. Would recommend.

  • We have stayed at a number of batches in Raglan and Arapiki...

    We have stayed at a number of batches in Raglan and Arapiki House is by far the best. Excellent holdiay home for accomodating our group of adults and children. The lay out of the house ensured the children had their oiwn space to play games inside, watch dvds and run around outside while still being in view of the adults. Well thought out use of furniture, seating and home comforts. Very well equiped kitchen. Clean and tidy with lots of nice touches but no annoying personal extras.
