Rest and Relax or get amongst it in Raglan. From world class surf, beaches and bush all within minutes of the house.

Bedroom 1 as shown in the photos has a comfortable new queen bed, bedding and linen and is on the ground floor.
Bedroom 2 is upstairs with great views and a separate balcony. I only let out the second bedroom if there is more than two guests as sometimes people travel in small groups together.

Down on the beach there are paddle boards for your use

The space

Bedroom 1 is spacious with stunning view from 2 sides. ( As shown in the photos) The room is situated off the lounge and a short distance from the Kitchen and bathroom. The bathroom has a cast iron bath, Shower and toilet. There is also access to the main deck from the bedroom.

Bedroom 2 is located upstairs and is spacious and with own balcony with fantastic views.

The property is on 3,500square meter section with bush and 80 wooden stairs down to the beach were there is a toy shed with 2 paddle boards. the beach is great to swim at 2 hrs either side of high tide.
There is ample parking on the property at the end of the drive.

Guest access

Guests have access to the main floor which has the bedroom, lounge, dinning room, Kitchen, bathroom and toilet. There is a small room that is used as a spear room / wardrobe and my room is separate and upstairs.
All cooking facilities and utensils are available. There is room in the fridge and shelves for food storage if needed.

I am pretty flexible with most things so feel free to ask me if you have any requests.
I work during the day so you pretty much have the house to your selves though it is shared with me.

Interaction with guests

I am flexible to any guests needs as every guests is different and are on holiday for different reasons. I have many varied experiences with guests from cooking meals and sharing conversation and giving and sharing experiences.

Such an amazing place, filled with amazing art work and also with an amazing view, we had such a great time. Rick was also very kind, he made sure that we were fine even though we weren't able to meet him.

Very polite and helpful host. If you're ok with not having a lot of privacy as room is right off the lounge and the bathroom is right off the kitchen with a see through glass panel on the door that goes into the kitchen. I suggest if taking this accomodation eating out as cooking can be a little awkward as there wasn't a lot of fridge room and he tends to be in the small kitchen at the same time.

Response from Rick:
The room is off the lounge but most of the time i am not there and the bathroom does have small frosted window pains. I could look to putting a curtain over it. After many many booking i have never had this issue mentioned. The listing does state that there are some shared spaces. Considering i am at work or like 1 of the nights out untill late then i don't see it being a problem, most guests actually like to talk to the host. I was though busy cooking the first night and certainly would have provided more space in the fridge if asked for. Point taken that maybe i should not cook while there are guests in the house.

Nice place a little out of the main township. Harbour views from bedroom. The house is quite small and sharing with Rick the owner who is friendly. The kitchen is a little and cute sharing the space at meal times can be a juggle but no worries. The walk down from the car with luggage was a bit of mission. Overall nice place but sharing in very close areas not so private.

Rick is a very thoughtful host and a delight to stay with. The views are outstanding and his gorgeous art is everywhere in his house. A warm inviting space, and.... this is truly super host status... he turned on our electric blankets so we came back to cosy beds :-) thank you Rick!
