Kent Homestay Apartment

 Cute little apartment in quiet location. Have stayed in both the Kent Terrace properties now and have been really happy with both. This smaller property was ideal for myself and partner. 

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. 

Wildcoast Ruapuke cabins and horse adventures,

 This place is perfect, we loved each pieces of it, the homey, comfortable, full of window cabin, the amasing terrace with the sea and mountain view, the small lovely creek above the house, we will always remember for the waving grass of hills view what we saw in the morning lights from the bed and the enthralling beach with the bravest surfers of the world including the youngest girl of family :)) Dont miss WildCoast, we will always remember for these happy days there. Thanks and see you soon ! 

Raglan on your door step.

 The property is very well equipped, tidy, welcoming, with everything we needed. Even has a good collection of DVDs for those rainy days. Very handy location to the estuary and to Raglan's centre. Highly recommended! We would be very happy to stay there again :-)
