A 150 metre stroll from the sand and sea of beautiful Taipa Bay in Doubtless Bay, sits Raines Retreat. With a glimpse of the sea and a spacious yard, it is a comfortable family home with everything needed for a fabulous holiday.

This four bedroom holiday house has an outdoor spa, a modern kitchen with dishwasher and two bathrooms, one upstairs and one downstairs.

An outdoor shower and private outdoor dining area off the back deck, are perfect for a leisurely rest after those long hours on the beach. Enjoy a glass of wine as the sun sets and gaze up at the stars - holiday bliss!

The large flat section that Raines Retreat sits on allows plenty of room for parking the boat, caravan or cars; as well as impromptu games of backyard cricket. A wrap around deck means no matter which way the wind is blowing you can always have doors open, with great indoor/outdoor flow.

The private garden and small table is the perfect place to escape for some solace, with a cup of tea and a book.

For a beach holiday perfect for the whole family, look no further than Raines Retreat!

Guest reviews for Raines Retreat

We encourage reviews. Our review policy.
Stayed April 2022

We were disappointed that even though we checked with Bachcare prior to our visit that the property would be clean for our arrival (after seeing some bad recent reviews) we still finding property unclean on arrival. Big issue with the keys meaning we could not access spa or other items locked away. We have to leave the property unlocked every time we went out and take all our valuables with us.. Not sure if down to property manager or owners. Disappointing.

Stayed February 2022

This property is not being managed well by Bachcare. It requires maintenance and thorough cleaning. We spent a lot of time on our holiday cleaning the spa before we could use it, removing flies from the house on arrival, rubbish under beds and behind couches, kitchen plates etc put away unclean, had to drive to shop to buy light bulbs, batteries for TV remote and detergent. Bachcare did not respond to our requests for help and advice, until we basically insisted they do so. We are still waiting for a refund on the items we had to buy so we had lights and avTV which worked.

Bachcare replied

Thank you for your feedback Wendy, and we're sorry to hear about the issues you experienced during your stay. As discussed with you, we are working with our local team on the ground to ensure this does not happen again in future. We trust the compensation provided is a good resolution and we hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay in Taipa.

This is a great old school batch, close to the beach and on a large section. However we do feel that the batch could do with some upgrading. The beds were rickety and old. The outside furniture so worn and corroded that they were quite dangerous . And we would recommend that the Spa be half or fully emptied in-between each bookings. We arrived to the spa being sandy and not very clean, with an overpowering smell of chemicals which had obviously been dumped in , in-between the bookings.

Great location for beach and shops. Needs some fans in summer

Stayed December 2021

Nice place for a family holiday, in a really good location, only 5 mins walk to the beach. There are shops, a pub/liquor store and a gas station within walking distance and a good supermarket only a few minutes drive away. Doubtless Bay is one of NZ's gems, especially in Summer! .

Stayed April 2021

Absolutely AMAZING bach to stay. Our second holiday here and love how everything from the smallest details are provided. True kiwi bach experience where kids can be kids, safe playing on the beach, which is a 2 minute stroll away! We’ll be back again soon!

Stayed February 2021

We had an awesome stay at Raines Retreat. Perfect location for a stunning holiday! Highly recommend, especially if you have a pet that comes on holiday too.

Stayed February 2021

Great house for families. Spa Pool was a wonderful bonus. Only minutes from the beach. Definitely stay again

Stayed November 2020

A great holiday with the extended family, a nice bach with a relaxed feel.

Stayed January 2020

The accommodation was okay but the beds (bunks) in the very small 4th bedroom were very uncomfortable. The spa was nice. The cleaning fee was excessive compared with other baches we have stayed in.

Bachcare replied

Thanks for your review Rose. We have passed on your valuable feedback to the owner for review. At Bachcare we pride ourselves on our properties being sparkling clean for every guest's arrival, which is why we allocate plenty of time for properties to be cleaned thoroughly between stays. We hope to welcome you back again in the future.

Shannon was absolutely wonderful, made it very easy for us, fast at getting back to me although I left getting back to her to the last minute. Our place was beautiful, felt like home away from home with the few extra perks like our spa, which was used every day. My family and I had a wonderful experience, I had a awesome birthday. So thank you bachcare, we have definitely recommended you to everyone we know, and I'd recommend staying at the place for a lovely peaceful weekend away with friends and family.

Stayed September 2019

A great stay thanks. Unfortunately we did not find the mattresses comfortable.

Bachcare replied

Hi Cathy, we're glad that you had a great stay. We're sorry to hear the mattresses were not to your liking. We will relay the message to the owners to review.

Stayed April 2019

Handy location for the event we were there for. Older style home with plenty of room, quiet setting easy walk to the beach.

Stayed February 2019

Good for the jacuzzi but would not stay here again. Needs a good clean.
