Overview

Amazing is also often the word used to describe this unexpected piece of paradise.

Driving from Okete Road on a metal road, you will be welcomed by native bush, hear the tui's greet you with their song and fantails darting around you.

Sheltered on a private farm, a farm that has links to the original Raglan settlers, this stunning property which has sweeping views of the harbour and surrounding rolling hills will let you unwind and relax in this traditional Kiwiana Bach.

Your own personal jetty at the back door whether to jet ski or have use of the owner's Kayak to explore the surrounding area. Kayak up the estuary to see the mesmerising Okete waterfall.

Flounder is in abundance which you could catch and cook on the same day or try your hand at whitebaiting in season or fishing directly off the wharf.

Sit on the deck at night with your favourite glass of wine and take in the wonders of the night sky. No light-pollution, allowing you to watch shooting stars and satellites orbit above you.

This Bach offers an open plan kitchen, stone bench tops alongside an original coal range. The dining and lounge area leads from here on to the deck with expansive sea views which roll in on three sides of the Bach. Two bedrooms, with comfortable mattresses with sink in toppers, will allow you to have the relaxation you deserve. Laundry facilities are available.

Although the Bach is two storeys and access is via stairs the self-contained lower level still has original dirt floor so not quite the specs guests are looking for these days so no one stays here but people still have fond memories of staying under the bach in a bygone era and have visited to be reminded of their stays here.

Beautiful coastal walks or adventures along the beach front and lovely safe swimming at your doorstep or endless fun jumping or fishing from the wharf.

The Bach is steeped in memories and fun times. Whether it is a romantic getaway or an action-packed family holiday there is something here for everyone. Create your own history in this adventure playground.

The property itself was amazing, right on the water. Lovely comfortable beds, nice kitchen and good shower. We were 15 minutes out of Raglan and it was just so peaceful.

A wee old fashioned style family bach with the modern cons you need to relax away from the hustle and bustle of a town or city ...down off the main road on a private metal road with private water access ... brilliant place to just sit and watch the bird life.

We had a good stay at this lil hidden gem. The location was absolutely stunning. The place had its own vintage look and feel. Was a nice weekend getaway with the kids.

A quintessential kiwi Bach 10 minutes from Raglan but away from the noise and crowds. Old, but well looked after with comfortable furniture and a modern kitchen. Amazing 180 degree views of the water and birdlife, and a beach and jetty for playing around. An amazing spot for a quiet weekend with friends and family.
