Yes Outside Only
Pet Friendly Outdoor Only
Bright blue and boasting estuary views, this Raglan holiday home is packed with character and modern charm. Welcome to The Smidge Inn!
From the moment you arrive here at the Smidge Inn, you’ll feel that chilled beach vibe that Raglan is famous for. Drop your bags, open up the sliding glass doors to create seamless indoor-outdoor flow, and then get relaxing!
You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to places to make your happy place in the large outdoor living space. Will you put your feet up with a book on the outdoor sofa, under the cover of the overhead canopy? Or will you pull up a bean bag and watch the kids enjoy playing on the grass in the fully fenced backyard?
When the weather isn’t quite right to enjoy the great outdoors, make yourself at home in the living room, furnished with style and comfort in mind. Use the complimentary WIFI to log into your favourite viewing app on the Smart TV and catch up on that show that everyone’s been talking about.
A fully equipped kitchen is on hand to prepare delicious meals on your Raglan holiday, and with so much delicious organic produce around we think you’ll be doing a lot of eating! Fire up the BBQ on the deck and whip up a couple of side dishes to complete your feast, then enjoy dining alfresco at the outdoor table under the shade of the umbrella.
Two bedrooms and two sleepouts comfortably sleep up to eight guests here at the Smidge Inn. The upstairs bedroom features a queen bed and enjoys gorgeous harbour views.
A combined bathroom and laundry in the house provides indoor conveniences, while those in the sleepouts will love the modern hot water outdoor shower and tub!
The Smidge Inn is just a 50m walk from the estuary, and a 10-minute walk from town. Grab yourself a famous Raglan Roast coffee and explore the unique shops, before sitting down for a bite to eat at one of the delicious local eateries.
If you’ve come to hit the beach and ride the waves, you’ll find Wainamu Beach a five-minute drive away, and Ngaranui Beach just seven minutes drive away. The famous surf break of Manu Bay is also less than a 10-minute drive from the Smidge Inn.
Whether you’re in town for the surf or the cool hipster vibe, The Smidge Inn has you covered!

We absolutely loved our stay in the blue house. Right by the estuary with everything you need and more. Thank you for letting us pinch a few things from your beautiful garden. We'll definitely be back.

This is a great property when you need an escape to the beach. It is beautifully furnished, with additional novelties, like an outdoor shower and bath. Waking up to the views from the top bedroom was amazing. I would definitely book here again and I would recommend it for your next trip to Raglan.
