  • Our Bach is situated right next door to the new Four Square Supermarket.
  • Just a few steps to great coffee, shops, restaurants and the beautiful Raglan harbour.
  • Warm, cosy and comfortable...you'll love it. There is room for parking 2 cars behind each other.

'Whare Aroha'...'Love Shack'... is a warm, comfortable little bach you will surely enjoy for a weekend getaway or longer stay, situated right in the heart of Raglan in Bankart St, behind the Town Hall. At the rear of another little "love shack' on the property, 'Whare Aroha' is private even though we are right in town.

Once you park your car, which you can do right next to the deck of the Bach, you are only a few steps from all Raglans fantastic shops, cafes, entertainment venues and harbour. Walk out the gate behind the Bach and you are in the Main Street of Raglan Village. Enjoy your days activities and then a night out on the town and you don't have to worry about driving home...just 'wander'.

Your can drive your car up the driveway and park right next to the deck. There is enough room to park another car behind. For some quick shopping supplies you can pop right next door to the new 'Four Square' Supermarket.

Our cosy bach has 1 queen bedroom and a queen 'loft bed' above the living area. The loft is only suitable for older children as it is accessed by a ladder and small children could fall. There is also a sofabed that is suitable for an extra adult or child.

With no TV or internet, the entertainment is all up to you. Pop your IPOD in the IPOD dock and have a barbeque on the covered deck or read a book in the hammock. Or just wander to one of the fabulous cafes, bars or restaurants or buy some fish and chips and walk down to the harbour to enjoy the sunset.

Surfing, hang gliding, paragliding, kite surfing, blowcarting on the beach, horse riding, fishing, kayaking, sunset boat cruises, golf, walks, great coffee, fabulous food, funky shops, the old Harbour View Hotel, Yot Club, Orca, Marlin Cafe and Bar for your beverage delights as well as delicious food.....plus so much more.........................

Come and enjoy 'Whare Aroha' and the delights of Raglan you won't be disappointed.

    This was just as advertised - very kiwi and had a great vibe. We thought we would miss the tv and internet, but enjoyed the solitude and great music provided. We would love to come again and bring the grandchildren.

    Perfect location, right next to the supermarket and main street. Cute warm and dry house. So happy I could take my little dog there to.
