Why Dave Currie chose Raglan
Fell in love with the physical beauty of Raglan, it's diverse and accepting community and the ability to have a positive impact on the environment.
What makes this Apartment unique
Apartment is centrally located and an easy walking distance to all amenities.
No refunds for cancellations made after payment is made
Perfect Raglan accomodation for single or couple
Dave was an amazing host and his accomodation ticked every box for us. From the enticing window box seat to curl up on when the weather closed in, to the comfy bed and great bathroom and lovely local themes. Highly recommended for a 1-3 night stay 👍
Light, bright, comfortable and welcoming
David is a warm and welcoming host.
Small, clean and tidy place to stay. Close to wharf area and not too far from town.
Friendly host and small, clean and tidy premises. The supply of 2x beach towels was a pleasant surprise, and although we travelled by car and had brought our own - I thought it would be a pleasant surprise for anyway trying to travel light. Enjoyed Raglan and surrounding areas - Bridal Veil Falls a "must see" - and watching the surfers was also very pleasant.
Did not enjoy at all
Not impressed at all, this is in his basement not a bach or holiday as description would indicate.You can hear everything from upstairs everyfoot step, No soundproofing,
No curtains on some windows and doors ( felt uneasy) bedding was damp and found cockroaches within minutes. We were not allowed to have our guests come visit that had traveled to visit. We were watched when we came in and out. So we didnt go back till late both nights, (being only females staying we felt very nervous) No kitchen for cooking only a little bbq which was also not clean.
But I loved Raglan and the locals where very nice and helpful with finding somewhere to stay during the day. Sorry but this was my worst traveling experience in my life. And i have never left a bad review before.
Clearly Mandy and I have different views, my apartment caters for couples, 2 people, Mandy hired the apartment during Sound Splash weekend and sought to have multiple people use the apartment, we disagreed over this.
Suggest u look at all of the other positive reviews.
Great break for us wish it was longer.
Great location in Raglan. The unit is very clean and tidy. It has been well setup with all that you need and more. Great host giving us all the info we needed. We would love to go back and stay.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in a well presented, nicely appointed apartment, Dave
having given great attention to detail - linen cushions, Tony Sly pottery and Raglan coffee - a perfect getaway. Thank you Dave - we look forward to returning soon.
