A peaceful self-contained space with private bathroom, and shared outdoor deck in leafy surroundings. Short walk to town centre. Please note, if anyone in your group is a smoker, we kindly ask you book elsewhere. Sorry, but we feel strongly about this.

The space

This is a large self-contained studio, with it's own entrance from the lower deck of our Raglan home. It includes a private bathroom, and basic kitchenette with microwave, kettle, toaster, and fridge - PLEASE NOTE, NO STOVE TOP. Access is by walking down our short (but steep) driveway, as well as some landscaped stairs to the lower deck. The studio is quite private, with outlook being mostly bush, and Mt. Karioi in the distance. It's a 10-minute walk down to the town centre, less than one km away. The room sleeps a maximum of 3 persons (1 double bed, 1 single).

Guest access

The property slopes down from street level. Parking available beside our letterbox. Please don't drive down driveway, the lower parking bay is not for guest use. The room has its own entrance, accessed by walking down the short (but steep) driveway and some landscaped stairs to our lower deck.

Shared spaces include: lower deck area, laundry room and washing line (no dryer).

Interaction with guests

We’d love to help you get to know Raglan. We can provide lots of information on what’s happening in town, places to go and things to do - and of course… what the surf’s doing! As we both work from home, we’ll be around most of the time, in case you need anything. We do however respect your privacy, and are happy to give our guests plenty of space.

Other things to note

We really appreciate knowing in advance when to expect your arrival, so please let us know, and keep us informed of changes. We plan our activities of the day around your expected arrival time...

We generally pencil check in for 3pm or after, and check out by 11am, but can often jiggle that around. So let us know your plans, and we can finalise your arrival details.

We have a cat who can be quite entertaining, when she appears. We also have friends and family that occasionally visit. But for the most part, our home is very quiet and relaxed. Please note our property, including the outdoor areas, is strictly non-smoking.

We’re very ‘resource conscious’ in this house. The planet will appreciate it if you can also be aware of this yourself, and minimise whenever possible : )

Great spot to enjoy Raglan. Peaceful and secluded yet just a quick walk to be in town. The book collection will keep you entertained and the view captivated. Ste'en made everything very easy to check in and for a comfortable stay.

Steen was a very welcoming host with lots of tips about Raglan. Having a separate unit with some privacy was really nice, especially if you're staying for more than one night.

We enjoyed our stay at Steen's beautiful place! We appreciated the little extras in the room - maps, food recommendations and beaches to visit. Would highly recommend!

See the previous review as this was our second time staying at Steen and Tonyas. It's just awesome in every way possible!

My wife and I have been using Airbnb for a number of years. We have had many fantastic experiences, but I think that Steen may just be the nicest, most helpful host we have ever had. He helped us out with our stay in Raglan, to make sure we had a great time. He also went out of his way to suggest a routing for the rest of our trip that made the most sense for what we are looking to do. Tonya had to be away in Auckland for work most of the time, but I am sure she is equally as awesome. As for the place, it is perfect. Perfect location, perfect size, and everything you would need. We enjoyed our time in Raglan so much that we booked Steen's place again for the end of our trip.

Ste'en was an excellent host and would stay again. Private area to yourself and got great local advise when needed. Really clean room and relaxing atmosphere.

My partner Tonya and I are both well travelled, and like to get away whenever possible which is how we discovered AirBnB. We both love being in Raglan and are lucky enough to be able to call it our home, living in a house that I relocated and rebuilt over the last decade or so. It’s a magic little spot, our paradise, and we’d love to share it with you… just message me if you want to find out any more about us or our listing. Cheers – Ste’en and Tonya.
