Bronze award winner in Design category for Bookabach Bach of the Year 2017.

Relax to the sound of birdsong and enjoy native bush views of Wainui Reserve, beautifully framed by Kauri tree leaves. This stylish, contemporary cottage is architecturally designed to create a peaceful sense of privacy while feeling connected to the lush greenery outside – as if you were in a treehouse.

Though you’ll feel tucked away from civilisation, our modern cottage offers all the comforts of home. Kauri Tree Retreat features a fully-functional kitchen and an outdoor barbeque for those who enjoy self-catering, or treat yourself by visiting a nearby cafe or restaurant – including Rock-It Kitchen, just a one-minute drive down the road. You’ll have the convenience of free high-speed broadband, a Bluetooth speaker and Sky movies and sport.

The restful bedroom offers a luxurious super-king bed with quality linens. If needed, this can be split into two singles and there is a camp bed suitable for a child, with extra blankets provided.

Kauri Tree Retreat is private and self-contained. The owners live on-site in a separate building, and the property is partially fenced. We are just 3.5km from Raglan’s lively town centre.

Local attractions include a brand new mountain bike trail through a pine forest, just 2km away. Enjoy the outdoors by hiking up Mt Karioi, playing golf or going caving, fishing or horse riding. Choose from an abundance of yoga classes, book in with our experienced local massage therapist, or see a movie at the quaint Old School Arts Centre. Explorers can hire a kayak, SUP board or bicycle, or head to the Raglan Museum and Information Centre for more ideas.

    The property was beautiful with some lovely outdoor areas to soak up the sound of the tuis all day long, and there were comfortable indoor areas to escape the sun too. The house was warm, the concrete floors were a wonderful heat source! The bedding was cozy and soft, and the towels were lovely too. We will be back again in the future I reckon! :) Thank you Sharon. :)
