Waterfront Raglan Bach

 Perfect property for two families or one very large one. Safe and just a lovely slice of Kiwi paradise. 

Karamu Trail Track Farm Stay and Horse Trekking

 all the services on site and the activities they organised for us 

Fantastic home away from home

 It was close to everything in Raglan, and a good sized bach. The only minor negative thing was there were quite a few blown lightbulbs. 

Mokino Sundowner Heaven

 Great bach, fantastic location, we absolutely loved the huge deck, and being so close to the beach. We took our dogs, thanks for being pet friendly, they all had a wonderful time. Would absolutely recommend. 

The Old School Masters House

 The villa is full of character and charm. It has plenty of space and has a superb modern kitchen. It is at the edge of the kawhia township,in a semirural location , surrounded by fruit trees. It is very reasonably priced. We had a great time there and are happy to recommend it as a quiet 'getaway'. The owner was great to deal with. 

Mokino Sundowner Heaven

 Great views and outside deck area
