Property Description

Solscape is intended to foster our connection with one another and the natural world by providing a place for rest, rejuvenation, and playful inspiration.
We are nestled on 10 acres at the foot of Mt Karioi with breathtaking views over the Tasman Sea in magical Raglan, New Zealand, just a short walk from the world famous surf of Manu Bay and Ngarunui Beach.
Raglan has a distinct laid-back atmosphere and a diverse range of eateries to suit all tastes. The main street is lined with interesting shops selling a variety of bohemian arts and crafts.
We are 2 hours south of Auckland and 40 minutes west of Hamilton, and are just a few kilometres from Raglan township on New Zealand's beautiful west coast.

Our key intention is to see ‘good’ come from what we do. It's good for our customers, our community, and the environment.

Relax in our varied up-cycled to modern lodgings, with options to suit all budgets. Our simple eco accommodation demonstrates sustainable practises and is purposefully designed to fit within our primary goals of reducing our ecological footprint and inspiring our visitors with many working models of sustainable living.
All caboose guests share communal restrooms, and beds are made up with high-quality linen.
Best known for long peeling left-hand point breaks, Raglan also offers ideal conditions for beginners and novice surfers. Solscape Eco Retreat offers board and wet suit hire.

Raglan is a premier kiteboarding destination in New Zealand, too. Because of Raglan's natural land formations, kiteboarding is possible in almost any wind direction.

Raglan has several bush and beach walks, including Mt Karioi, Te Toto Gorge, and the stunning Bridal Veil Falls waterfall track.
There are numerous other ways to connect with nature in Raglan, such as kayaking and horseback riding tours.

On-site services include , yoga classes, and a sauna and ice bath.

Solscape was beautiful and peaceful! The mattresses were comfy. The only complaint I had is that if you don’t have a car, it is a vigorous, long walk up to the place from town. I would’ve loved to be able to pay even a little extra for a pick up/drop off service because there is really no other way to get there from town. The staff were a bit hard to reach, but when I did interact with them they were very sweet and helpful! Aside from the distance from town, the location and view is unmatched!

Really stressful stay. No one responding to the phone all day. Really unclean facilities and no electricity in the rooms. No shuttle service even when hiring kit. Lock not working on door. Feel pretty robbed for the price

Amazing place to stay. Gorgeous view and great atmosphere. Only thing is that it’s located 45 min from the town. Easy walk to the beach tough. And raglan is super easy to hitchhike with all the surfers around.
