HORIZON SURF LODGE - family beach house

 Loved our stay at Horizon Lodge, views were great, facilities were perfect for our group and location was convenient and peaceful. 

Kowhai Cottage & Studio - Fall in love with me!

 Cosy and comfy cottage with a beautiful garden in a quiet area. Nice sitting areas outside as well as inside. Personal style and great selection of books which really made us feel at home. Would love to come back. 

Best View in Raglan

 This was a great property, so well set up, homey, accessible, great location to the beach, town. The view is to die for with two wonderful decks with views! The house is very well equipped and maintained to a high standard with all you need. It was an added bonus being able to take a small dog - with facilities outside and a safe environment for the dog to run around. The house was beautifully clean and very well presented. A wonderful relaxing place to stay. I will be back:) 

Fantastic home away from home

 Really great house and suited our group perfectly. Would recommend A+ 

Fairview - Waters Edge Beach Bach

 Wonderful handy location 

Okete Waterfront Cottage

 A wonderful quiet spot that is still close to Raglan. A great get away for families right on the waters edge. Safe swimming and kayaking when the tides in. A well appointed cottage. Having a loft with its separate bathroom and the master bedroom with an ensuite is great, and the deck and lawn out the front is a great place to sit out and watch the harbour, or for the kids to play.
