Why Deborah Attard-Manche chose Waikato District
This property was the original bach in Whale Bay and the Norfolk Pine in front of the house was a Christmas tree in 1948! I love living here as its close to Raglan town and yet its got its own character living in the Bay - its calm and relaxed and a beautiful sanctuary. The sound of the Ocean is so beautifiul and the view is stunning.
What makes this Studio unique
Its only 10 minutes drive to Raglan town with its bohemian vibe, local eateries, cafes and creative shops and I love being on the Ocean, looking out to sea and hearing the roar of the waves every day - the louder the better. Its fabulous to hear and see the surfers catching the waves and whooping with delight! It is subtropical here and sheltered from the wind - its a very private space with a very established garden with beautiful old trees. Its quiet and its unique.

Cozy spot in great location
Cozy (but nt cramped) studio in a great location for surfing. Comfortable bed, spacious bathroom, nice little kitchen with all the basic including a coffee plunger. Nice decor. It was rainy while we were there so we didn't get to enjoy the patio but it looked nice. Steep path down to studio but very manageable (use a light at night). Perfect setup for 2 people.
The artsy studio at Whale's Tail Bay
Deborah has made the small studio into a comfortable, artfully colorful place to stay. The kitchen has everything you need to cook your meals and you can either sit inside at the bar or table or outside on the patio to eat. The bathroom is modern and there is a washing machine in one corner of it. If you want to go to Manu Bay you can take a 15 minute walk and if you want to eat lunch or dinner out Rock It isn't far and has great food. Raglan is a small town with some good shops and cafes. Deborah is helpful in letting you know where to go.
Amazing and blessed to stay at this wonderful place I call 'Chill Out'.
I needed a place to stay in Raglan and we were blessed with this little cosy, warm and chilled out whare. Deborah was an amazing host, she knows how to make you feel welcome. Her place is very well-thought of with whatever you need for living conditions. I will definitely recommend her place to anyone who is looking for time-out to chill by the surf. Thank you Deborah for having us feel like we have had a wonderful holiday. All the best!
Funky Whale Bay studio flat
Deborah was a very friendly, informative and accommodating host. Her studio flat was very clean, tidy and well kitted out. Away from Raglan township, it was a little haven not far from Whale Bay, Manu Bay and a bit closer to town, Ngaranui. The views along the coastline are absolutely spectacular. We had a great time using her flat as a base to explore the area and it was only a short distance from the township for cafes, shopping, kayaking, walks around the estuary, etc. A great place to spend a holiday.
Absolutely a magical place. Just a perfect beach studio.
The studio has everything you would want or need. The kitchen is perfect for cooking in and your patio has a lovely surrounding atmosphere and even a peak at the ocean and surf below. The bathroom is perfect with a wonderful shower and the bed and linens are top hote quality. She has really thought of everything a travel might want to feel at home in her special spot. Deborah is also an absolute top notch host. She is an all around lovely person but she also knows everything and everyone within the area. Seriously could not have asked for more.
Lovely place with everything we needed.
Deborah was a great host and we loved staying at her place.
