Perfectly situated up a quiet private drive overlooking Raglan Harbour to the North and the Inner Harbour to the East, this comfortable 3-bedroomed family home is only a few minutes walk from the centre of Raglan and the town Beach, and a five minute drive from the surfing beaches.

There are spectacular harbour views from living areas, main bedroom and deck. The spacious open-plan lounge has two sets of French doors opening onto a wrap-around deck with a large table and benches for outside dining. The lawned garden area all around the house makes it especially suitable for young families.


The house sleeps a maximum of 7 people. The master bedroom with harbour view has a queen bed; the second bedroom has a double and a single bed, and the third bedroom has a single and a small single bed.

There is a well-equipped family kitchen, and a newly-fitted bathroom with shower. Washing-machine. BBQ available.

    We enjoyed our weekend - the sin shone into the house the whole day, the views over the harbour are fantastic, the kitchen is well supplied with everything you might need, and we slept well. All this and only 5 mins walk to the cafes. We'll be back!

  • Great place to stay

    Great place to stay. Peaceful spot with lovely views. Comfortable and clean with everything we needed for our family group. It was good to be able to spread out across the two houses.

    Beautiful view from the house(s) and we especially enjoyed sitting out on the decks and soaking in the views of Raglan harbour. The houses were tidy and clean which was enjoyable.
