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.

I was a little disappointed! The staff was friendly and the views were amazing, but the general vibe was pretty disorganized and dirty. One of the beds in my 3 bed dorm was not cleaned by the time the last person came to stay in it. The main fridges in the kitchen stopped working while full of food and no one was notified until at least 12 hours later. You could hear mice/rats scuttling around in the ceiling above the kitchen. The bathrooms were dirty/wet. Maybe I came at a bad time..

A little more rustic than expected. Wish we could have upgraded to earth dome. The heater in the metal hut was nice for the first night. Duvets too hot, no option to sleep just with a sheet. Landscaping well cared for. A fire in the common area would have been appreciated during rain. No oven in the kitchen. Two 4 burner cook tops. Lots of fridge space. Out front a beautiful covered area looking out into the Bay: lots of seating here. Jai was very nice. Need car. Not close to anything.

Really nice location but better to have a car as quite remote. Lovely view and such a peaceful hostel.
