A stones throw from the estuary and awesome eateries
Only the road separates you from the estuary and it’s a 10 minute weave down the road to some really good restaurants (don’t miss George’s Beach Club).
This is expensive accommodation though - Coming in at just under a grand for 2 nights (7 people) the kids stayed in a converted garage and veranda that gave up the fight to be insect free and they sported even more insect bites than the adults.
This has all the stuff you need to get by but there’s not a lot of love or money spent on the property. Facilities (including bedrooms and toilets) are miniature and all of the furnishings escaped second hand shops in the 70s. It Misses being cosy because of the lack of love.
Yip, you get a bath but there’s so many warnings about water usage being metered guilt drives you under the house to Share the shower with the cockroaches.
It’s clean but very worn out. There is a cot in the twin bedroom and a double bed in the main room.
If you want a long stay there’s loads of books and toys for toddlers.
There is NO wheelchair access, if you have mobility issues this is a no go - not only will you struggle with the stairs the shower is downstairs and the toilet cannot fit a human being with a walking stick.
Thank you for your review of our property in Raglan. We are sorry you were not able to enjoy Fairview for what it is and what it has to offer.
Fairview is advertised as a "character family bach". It has been in the family since it was built more than 70 years ago. Over this time it has been lovingly cared for and carefully furnished in keeping with its age and character.
It is in an amazing position with the sea just across the road. Fairview has been built up high (hence the stairs, which incidentally are clearly shown in the photo on the website) in order to capture the stunning views. There is no suggestion that this property is suitable for wheelchair access.
There have been modifications made to the house over the years but these have been limited by the original design of the house.
It is still a comfortable and homely bach which we are proud to let through HomeAway.
Amazing home with lots of history. We had a great weekend away. A nice walk to town and the beach. Many thanks
Great location. Easy access. Cute and clean original condition Bach. Could do with a few improvments
Great location. Easy access. Cute and clean original condition Bach. Could do with a few improvments in the house itself and management. Property manager was difficult to contact or respond to matters. Alot of stairs to enter the house, not a problem for us but should be noted. Shower is outside and downstairs to under the basement. A light or torch would be useful to navigate the many stairs in the dark. Toilet and bathroom.are both out house. Original but very clean. Good oven and kitchen utensils. Reminder maybe to bring linen, we didn't take any linen, sheets, towels/tea towels. Was nice to switch off from Wi-Fi and tv for the weekend. Bunk room is also outside and downstairs, perfect for teenagers, a little musty but teenagers were fine. Overall a cute clean wee step back in time, would have been good to have known to be prepared for the above considerations, otherwise a lovely weekend . (Oh take a hairdryer.. there maybe one but i couldn't find it)
Thank you for your review of our property. I need to explain that the bathroom and toilet are on the same level as the house and are just outside the back door. Thank you for your suggestions. We have taken them into consideration and now have a new torch and hair dryer.
Good kiwi character bach
Good kiwi bach with a great view and close to town.
Awesome Kiwi Bach in a Great Location!
We loved our stay here, the Bach was in an amazing location only walking distance to the town/swimming areas. The house was dated but we loved it and it worked very well for us! The back yard is massive and fully fenced off so great for the kids to run around! Toilet and bathroom is external to the main house which was fine for us.
