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

 Small cute bach. Perfect for our needs. So central to the cafes and shops. Clean and tidy and well equipped. Very warm. Great hammocks to hang out in also. Will definitely be back.

 Loved the character of the property. Our son was in heaven in the loft bed. Found the lighting a bit dim especially in the pantry. Noise from town was loud on Saturday night. Overall however a lovely place to stay that is well equipped.
