Kent Holiday House - Central Raglan accomodation

 Tidy, gorgeous view from the deck, and very short walk into town. Would definitely stay again. 

Raglan Bach Wainamu Beach Kiwi beach house

 The location was away from Raglan village which was nice. The view we had from the bach was truly amazing. 

Holiday by the Sea, absolute waterfront bach

 Easy place to be, exciting to be influenced by the tides with your comings and going. We came last year for a family get together and enjoyed it so much that everyone wanted to go back to the same place. The kayaks were well used and enjoyed. A 2nd bathroom would not go amiss for a big family group, but it all worked well for us. 

Simple Bach, Sunny Central Location, Harbour Views

 It was close to town and nice and quiet. 

Raglan Bach Wainamu Beach Kiwi beach house

 An huge open plan living room and kitchen! ( with wooden floors so you dont need to worry about spills) so many couches to relax and lounge around. Massive deck and an outdoor spa along with the best sunset in the world! Shame the waves werent going that weekend otherwise it wouldve been perfect! Big thanks to Richard who made sure our short stay was the perfect getaway from a valentines weekend away :) 

Kent Homestay Apartment

 Lovely little place - apartment has everything you need, very accommodating owners. Had a lovely break from reality :)
