Raglan Retreat is situated on a large, fully fenced, flat section, which backs onto a native bush reserve and catches the all day sun. It is ideal for families with small children as the section provides plenty of room to play and the tyre swing can provide hours of entertainment. All the comforts of home can be found including a full kitchen, laundry, and BBQ. The kitchen is very well equipped for your holiday needs with pots, plates, cutlery etc and has a full stove, microwave and a fridge/freezer. The house has polished wood floors throughout the kitchen, lounge, and bedrooms and a tiled bathroom.
It is a short walk to Raglan’s cafes and restaurants so you can leave the car at home or, if you don’t want to bring the car, there is a bus stop right outside.
Near the end of the street are two playgrounds and a safe Harbour beach for the children to swim at high tide or, if you prefer your beach to have waves, the World Class Surf Beaches are a short drive away.
Also conveniently located near the end of the street is the Wharf. Here you will find interesting shops like Soul Shoes, Tony Sly Pottery and great coffee. At the Wharf you will also find the best Fish & Chips shop in Raglan where you can sit and eat “your fresh catch” while watching the fishing boats come in. Or, if you prefer, you can order a cold beer or wine at the Marlin Cafe and Bar and watch the ever changing scenery. It is here that Orcas are often seen hunting stingray in the bay.
Another must do in Raglan is the stunning Bridal Veil Falls which is approx 20 minutes drive away and an easy 15 minute walk to the top – Simply Stunning Scenery! At the end of another relaxing day the option is yours – walk back after an evening of dining and music or stay home and have a BBQ on the deck.
Walk to the cafes, the heritage hotel and main shopping area, which are just around the corner in Bow Street and Wainui Road. Stroll along the harbourside for fishing at the jetty, or kayaking.
Over the footbridge you can walk to the Kopua reserve and beach in five minutes.
The most popular surf beach for experienced surfers is Manu Bay, which is about a 10 minute drive from the apartment on Wainui Road. Continue on along the coast for more surf at Whale Bay and Indicators Bay. The black sand and surf of Ngarunui Beach is just a 7 minute drive from the apartment. After a day of surfing you can relax at Number Four, before heading around the corner to the cafes.
“Awesome flat, nice and large, and in a great location. Really liked the dishwasher and internet. Will definitely use again. Close to town, but just off the main road so nice and quiet too.”
“Very comfortable, clean, tidy and well appointed. Many little extra touches that enhanced our experience. Well positioned, close to facilities. Short walk for a great morning coffee in Volcom Lane! Recommended!”
