This gorgeous much-loved character holiday home of an interior designer/ art director is full of retro style yet offers all the comforts of a modern home. It's a funky 1950's-1970's renovated 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 sea and mountain views every direction you look. The spacious 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 decks. The newly renovated kitchen has views to mount Karioi, a smeg freestanding oven and is well eqipped to cook for groups. There is an 8 seater dining opening to decking overlooking the bay. 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 outdoor dining setting 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 friends and family getaways and set up well for children. 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.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, despite a very wet weekend. Pictures don't do the house justice, there is loads of room and different spaces, so ideal for a group. House is very funky and comfortable. We'll be back for sure!
