A beautiful relaxing place to stay with stunning views over the Tasman sea. A beautiful appointed apartment and the most comfortable bed. The owner is delightful and most helpful. I would most certainly recommend tis property.

Arrived after a busy morning surfing to a friendly welcome, gorgeous views and a well equipped apartment. We opted for the in house dinning which was fantastic, especially the seafood platter. We will be back!

This place is beautiful. The owner is lovely and very helpful. :-) The gardens are stunning and it was such a peaceful retreat away from the usual fast pace of my life. I would love to come back and would highly recommend it.

What a beautiful slice of paradise tucked away in the hills of Raglan, very easy to find. Our host was wonderful, professional and an amazing cook. We organised dinner for our first night as per the website instructions as our host prefers to cook fresh local produce which we appreciated very much. Food was delicious. We'll be back Sharon, thank... More

We booked one of the lodges for a celebration with friends travelling here on their honeymoon and were amazed at the experience. Not only is the location beautiful and set on a wide landscape over looking the ocean, the food, the service and the overall feeling there was the best I have had in NZ. Our only regret is that...

This small resort is hard to find on the road between Raglan and Kawhaia. Little signage. Superb spot overlooking the Tasman Sea and Whale Bay. Beautifully equipped units with spa and lovely decking. The two bedroom unit is not for elderly or sissies - there are fourteen step stairs to the bedroom and no ensuite. Owner absent but greeting pleasant... More

This place takes a little bit of getting to but definitely worth it. Resting high above the beautiful Raglan coastline lies the 4 apartment lodge. Every room has a wonderful view and two have spa pools on the deck. We spent a beautiful calm night looking out on the ocean and watched the stars when it got dark. No where... More
