We stayed in the self contained unit. The statement on the brochure is that Four Elements is a "luxury retreat". Sadly, we couldn't work out what luxury component we were paying for - and the price charged is certainly in line with other true luxury accommodation offered in Raglan. The bed was really good and comfortable - but that's to... More

We had the pleasure of staying in the self contained unit. The facilities were tidy and everything was laid out for us like you would find it in substantially more expensive hotels. Jerry (the owner) has taken great care not to overlook any of the details, which makes Four Elements an elegant option. He was courteous and friendly and knew... More

This house is on a lovely hillside outside of Raglan with a magnificent view. There is a very large patio to enjoy this view. Our host showed us around and our room was acceptable with the exception of the fact that it had no reading lights. However, that was where the good part ended. I asked to put a bottle... More

Beautiful house, relaxing atmosphere and excellent host. This is the perfect place to recharge your batteries. There is a very enjoyable walk - connected to the house's property.- through the bush to reach Ngarunui beach. The view is spectacular: you can see the beach, the ocean and the hills on the horizon. Jerry, the owner, is a kind and generous... More

An ideal setting (and appropriate name!) to have some time out from the busyness of living in Auckland. Fantastic and very peaceful environment with views of the bush and the sea. It was lovely to hear the birds and the ocean (at night). It was great to sit on the deck and enjoy a glass of wine with views of... More

Four Elements was an outstandingly beautiful place to stay. It was set on a hill with spectacular views. It had a rainforest in the valley behind the house which was a wonderful place to get lost in for a few hours while walking to the surf beach. Directly behind Four Elements was Mt Karioi which was a striking backdrop. Of... More

Beginning to despair of finding a bed for the night when we were directed to Four Elements. What a find. A wonderful room overlooking a magnificent view. Jerry was an excellent host. Only downside was it was a bit far for walking to the town.

We had a really wonderful and relaxing few days here. Jerry was a lovely host and couldn't do enough for us. The views from Four Elements are unbelievable especially from the master suite. A great way to see and enjoy Raglan and celebrate our anniversary!!

We stayed in the self contained apatment and it really exceeded our expectations. It was newly built and very clean. Set right near the bush and with sweet ocean views. Only sounds are the birds and a stream. We were given a beautiful fruit basket and all the breakfast makings. Very private and serene. One of the best and most... More
