Relax and Unwind at Ahiawa Chalets - Raglan

 Really enjoyed our stay. The chalets were immaculate and cosy. Highlights ... the spa, privacy and the lovely bush setting. Highly recommend to others. 

Kent Holiday House - Central Raglan accomodation

 The property had everything that we needed and was clean, tidy and comfortable and very close to the town centre. 

A Cosy Bach in the heart of Raglan, 'WHARE AROHA'

 So handy to the township itself. 

Raglan on your door step.

 Really enjoyed our stay, nice and close to beaches and amenities which was what we were looking for in a Bach. The Bach itself has a lovely layout and found it to be very comfortable, quiet and peaceful. we slept well too as the bed was very soft. My only winge would be the loft ladder..(maybe a fold away attic ladder be better in that situation) only because I kept walking into it, otherwise the Bach was great. Thanks 

Kent Homestay Apartment

 A very pleasant stay. The property was clean and tidy and well set up with kitchen utensils. Enjoyed the tasteful, quaint feel of this original kiwi Bach. Quiet and restful. 

Port O' Call - Central Location

 Handy to amenities. Clean tidy and warm
