 We spent six days in the Blodge and had a lovely time in a comfortable,spacious, very complete house with a stunning view. If we didn't live 20000 km away I could easily rent this house every year.

 We can highly recommend staying at the Blodge, the views are to die for !!, the accommodation is HUGE and amazing !, we wanted all the furnishing and fittings in our own house!!.. Big enough to accommodate 2 families with loads of room for the kids to play inside and out. All bedrooms linen made up beautifully and lots of towels supplied. Cant fault it atall really. Would love to come back for another visit, Its a beautiful place . thank you

 Peaceful but close enough to pop into Raglan and other places of interest. 

Fairview - Waters Edge Beach Bach

 This was our first visit to Raglan and we will definitely return. Its a great little community and Fairview was a really good place to stay. We have young children and the large fenced back yard was great. Its a short pleasant walk along Cliff street next to the tidal harbour to get to the centre of Raglan. An older bach, Fairview has plenty of room and is well appointed.
