  • Great! Another fab weekend in Raglan

    Great! Another fab weekend in Raglan. We stayed in the Lava Lounge upstairs at exactly the same time last year and its always a pleasure. We had a great weekend and the studio has everything you need, heating, wifi, towels...and glow worms! Very close to the surf beach! Love that we could bring the dogs and we had friends staying upstairs in Lava Lounge so we could use the spa etc. The only issue would be if you stayed here and there was a booking upstairs, it may be a bit loud.

    The place was amazing, we honestly did not leave the entire time. House was cosy and everything you need is there. Love the sky tv for the rainy days. Tips for anyone Planing their stay here BUG SPRAY & FLY SPRAY are a must have.
