World class surfing and beautiful beaches are a short drive away. We could have stayed forever. 

My Fiancé and I were exploring the North Island of New Zealand for a 6-month trip. We were based out of a cozy yet small van and had made a deal that once every month we would stay in a nice BnB or hotel. We had been traveling for 3 months and had yet to find a spot that lived up to our expectations until we came across Bow Street Studios. It was exactly what we hoped for: spacious, bright, comfortable, immaculately clean with huge windows that looked out onto the water and a cute little outdoor seating area. We traveled to almost every part of the North Island and never saw another place as wonderful.

Greta & Mark visit us often from Queensland Australia. Here is what they think about Bow St Studios:

Whenever we return back to New Zealand, we always try to make sure a stop off in Raglan is on the agenda, along with a stay at Bow Street Studios. This little gem is an absolute favourite of ours, and is situated at the end of the main street, right by the water, with easy access to everything Raglan has to offer. The split-level units are incredibly spacious and quiet, with the downstairs living area very well equipped with everything you could need (including under floor heating), and extending out to the patio area. Upstairs the large bedrooms are very comfortable and cosy, with views of the ocean that are stunning both in perfect summer weather, and with the light show of a storm rolling in. The cottage is also fantastic, and if you’re lucky enough to get to stay in it, it really is like a home away from home. Dominique our host is always very accommodating, with a wealth of knowledge of local eats and things to do/see. She always goes out of her way to ensure we enjoy our stay, and has even been able to slot us in when we’ve turned up with little notice. Would absolutely recommend a stay at Bow Street Studios, I know we’ll most certainly be back in the future.

Bryna & Marilyn are regular guests, who visit from Auckland. Here are their comments:

Bow Street Studios provide a charming and relaxing experience when seeking a weekend getaway with memorising harbour views and sunsets, the presentation is impeccable within comfortable surroundings, from the over-sized bedroom, well appointed kitchenette to the inviting outdoor dining area. Bow Street Studios provide the ideal accommodation to indulge in water sports, adventure activities or stroll a few casual steps from your doorstep and embrace the 'Arty Bohemian' lifestyle amongst Raglans café culture. Dominique and her team are well focused to ensure your guest expectations are surpassed in a relaxed but proficient manner assuring you a return visit to this sleepy seaside town is very much on your agenda.
