Set amongst a magnificent stand of Kahikatea trees and beautiful nikau palms you will find a shed, and in that modest shed you will discover a handcrafted interior of character and comfort.

Located in Te Mata, 11km from Raglan township, 14km from Ruapuke beach and 8km from the Bridal Veil falls, this is the ideal place to stay if you want to feel like you are tucked away from the hustle and bustle of life. However, you are only 10 minutes from the buzz of Raglan and the lovely west coast.

The space
The shed sits amongst the trees in it own space. The walls of the building are lined in redwood timber, complimented with quality furnishings and an eclectic mix of charm and colour.

Out of view and round the bend on the share driveway is the family home with 3 young kids. You will have your own space, and you will have the entire shed to yourself. Your privacy will be respected, as the family will expect theirs to be.

It is a great space to relax and breathe in nature, to let the kids run wild and be as loud as they like, and to just escape the routine of day to day life.

Inside the accommodation there are 3 bedrooms. The master is a large room with wooden cot (for the tiniest members of the family), the kids bunkroom is perfect for a novelty fun nights stay, and the third room is single size room with a queen bed. The foldout couch in the living room can also be used for a (double)bed.

Open plan living makes for a cosy ‘wooden hut’ feel. During the summer it can feel like a welcome escape from the heat, and during the winter the space warms up with the heatpump (that heats all living and bedroom areas), making it a cozy and warm escape from the cool outdoors.
The bathroom is located in the ‘rumpus’ room, which is thru the wooden doors into a large spacious room that houses the table tennis table, dart board and piano!

Getting back to the basics of the simple life you will find no WIFI available, but freeview is possible and so are a good ol’ handful of DVD’s.

The kitchen is equipped with all necessary kitchen utensil, glassware, cups, plates, cutlery, pots and pans. There is a fridge, dishwasher, hotplates and SMALL bench top oven.
During the summer months (Nov-April) the BBQ is setup outside with a large entertaining table and chairs.
Linen and towels are provided.
