We loved staying at this beautiful, two-storey apartment. It was perfect for our family and just a few minutes' walk from fascinating shops, restaurants and pubs. It is also right on the water or just a short drive from amazing beaches. Service was very friendly and helpful. Raglan itself is a gorgeous, unspoilt seaside town just a few hours south of Auckland so is the perfect stopover for a driving holiday of the North Island of New Zealand.

A delightful place that was great value for money. The young host at reception (Beau) made us very welcome (even if he should have been at school lol) and was a great source of information about the local surf. A great location and highly recommended.

Lovely and spacious, walking distance to everywhere, perfect location for a well earned holiday. Self contained patio, opening out to a shared area which would be great on a summer's eve. Super comfy bed, all amenities top notch, highly recommended!

These apartments are right on the waterfront near the footbridge from the end of Bow Street to the beaches. The apartment is enormous, split level with a very large bedroom and good sized shower room and toilet upstairs. Downstairs is the living room, kitchen and small breakfast bar plus a private terrace with table and chairs and an enormous shared terrace/garden area beyond.
The managers/owners are really lovely and very helpful. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and well provided for our short stay. And the value was excellent. Highly recommended.
