Waters Edge Holiday Accommodation
Ranked #3 of 9 Raglan B&B and Inns
Reviewed 11 March 2013

Waters Edge is a truly amazing, beautiful place. Our three night stay started with being greeted by our charming hosts, Therese and Edi. Absolutely delightful people who couldn't do enough for us. Edi was a great help when we decided to go kayaking. They have all the gear. And the freshly baked bread by Therese, an added bonus. We stayed in the Cottage - highly recommended. Beautifully decorated with Therese's flair - warm, inviting and very romantic with beautiful views over Moonlight Bay from the private balcony. So peaceful and very private - an ideal spot to contemplate whatever it is you need to contemplate, both from the balcony or the chaise lounges on the beautifully manicured lawns. The beautiful gardens only add to the peacefulness
of the place. Both Therese and Edi are very informative of things to see and do around Raglan.
Super people who run a super retreat. Would return in a heartbeat. Thanks Therese and Edi. Gayl and Jeff McLachlan

We stayed in the delightful cottage for 2 nights at the end of a 12 day road trip . This was a wonderful spot to savour our last leisure days . The cottage was immaculate , beautifully decorated and very comfortable .. The sweeping lawn and beautifully landscaped gardens are the immediate vista to stunning views over the water (It really was Moonlight Bay when we were there with a brilliant full moon !) . Therese and Edi are wonderful hosts who are unobtrusive but there to help with advice on things to do and see around Raglan and restaurant recommendations etc .
Raglan is a delightful spot with its seaside location and very relaxed atmosphere and we really enjoyed exploring the area and sampling the excellent local cuisine, with something for all budgets and tastes . There are beautiful beach vistas and tranquil bush walks (dont miss Bridal Waterfalls).

My husband and I stayed in the Studio apartment for two nights recently and only wish we could have stayed longer. Therese and Edi have created this piece of paradise which they share with those fortunate enough to stay there. The apartment was immaculate and decorated beautifully. We also toured the cottage and vowed to come back and stay there on a future visit! While we needed to drive into Raglan, that was a very small price to pay for the ever-changing views over the water, absolute beach front access, and quiet, cool nights. Highly recommend!

We stayed for two nights to see what the Raglan area was like and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our hosts were perfect and couldn't do enough. Rooms were immaculate with stunning views over the water. Well recommended!

Therese and Edi have created such a beautiful piece of earth here just outside Raglan. All of the apartments (we stayed in the suite but also got a chance to see the other rooms) are decorated with so much love and effort. Same as the garden. Just take an hour and walk around in their "magic woods" - it is just like paradise. Rooms are comfortable and cosy. You have beautiful views onto the water - and Raglan itself is a very relaxed place. Perfect for a romantic weekend, or if you want to relax from a long flight - as we did. Unfortunately we only had two nights. You can easily spend more time here. It is definitely worth every dollar!
