Waters Edge Holiday Accommodation
Ranked #3 of 9 Raglan B&B and Inns
Reviewed 6 July 2013

On the strength of the other reviews we thought we'd stay here for a couple of nights in July... but we loved it so much we stayed for a week. The cottage is so cosy, quiet and clean. And waking up on a winter's morning to look out over the water was just magical. Therese and Edi are the best. They made sure we had everything we needed and even sent us back the bits and pieces we forgot to take home with us... thanks guys:-) All the little touches like the cut flowers, the lovely china, and the quaint decorations made it seem that we really belonged there rather than just being visitors. We were very sad when we sat outside on our last night to look at the sun set and listen to the silence... but we still have the photos to remind us of this little piece of paradise.

Room Tip: We stayed in the cottage. There were just two of us, but there is another bedroom that would make i...

Thank you so much for your review on your stay in the Beachfront Cottage. We really appreciate the time you took to do this, but also to know that you were happy and comfortable here, and that you received the parcel last week. We hope next time you need some 'r & r' you will come back. During the summertime the mountain walks are wonderful, and we know you had to eliminate them this time because of the weather. Kindest regards Therese and Edi, Waters Edge Raglan

A wonderful spot with outstanding views. Edi and Therese are wonderful hosts and we thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend here. The decor was tasteful and the extra touches - fresh flowers, real linen napkins and beatiful china - and it was only for breakfast, made it special.

This bed and breakfast sits right on the bay in Raglan is beautiful. We stayed in the cottage which was clean, quaint, had a kitchenette, could sleep 3 and had beautiful views. It was so serene it was a shame to have to check emails occassionally. They do have wi-fi and have the option for a continental breakfast. The weather turned while we were there so we were unable to make use of the kayaks.

Waters Edge lives up to it's reputation. Wonderful site, a cottage that could double as the old curiosity shop and charming hosts. At $185 a night it's beyond our usual tariff, but every now and then you should treat yourself, and this is the pace to do it.

Room Tip: We preferred the cottage

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 are so appreciative of the time you took to write your review of Waters Edge. We loved having you both, and we hope it won't be the only time we see you here. So thank you. Hope you carry on finding places you can go to when you want to 'run away from home'. We have a few special ones up our sleeves too! Therese and Edi, Waters Edge, Raglan NZ

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!
