Kent Homestay Apartment

 A well equipped property and well maintained. I was impressed by how much was provided for in a small kitchen space, which had everything you might have wanted for a few days stay. The location is within easy walking distance to the town centre and all local facilities. The extensive deck areas have some great views and are ideal spaces to unwind, which is exactly what we were looking for. 

Kent Homestay Apartment

 Lovely place to stay, very quiet, clean and comfortable, we will definitely be back 

Raglan on your door step.

 The bach is in a very convenient location, within short walking distance to town. The bach had everything that we needed to to make for a very enjoyable holiday. 

Bridle Creek Retreat

 Lovely spot - very private and rural, about 5kms outside Raglan. Accommodation was very clean and tidy, excellent modern facilities, with everything you could need and more. Kathleen is great. Highly recommend - we'll certainly be back. 

Holiday by the Sea, absolute waterfront bach

 Our second stay here and we will keep coming back. Stayed two weeks this time and was so sad to leave. The kids had a ball, kayaking sailing with the Sailing Club and lots of fishing. Our dog had the best time and he hated leaving!! Thanks so much Chris and Yann.

G SPOT  (Lower Level) - romantic getaway

 Everything worked perfectly. Great views, spa and clean modern facilities. Note: to get to the water to swim you'll need to drive since the water you can walk to is more of a walking area on large boulders - still cool! Will visit again some day for sure.
