Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This place was very comfortable and practical. The extra things supplied like salt/pepper, oil/vinegar, tea/coffee/sugar meant we didn’t have to buy and then waste our own. The location is unbeatable. We can’t wait to go back.

Just as lovely as last time - see my first review. A lot of surf action this week so very good viewing. I can't imagine there are many spots around Raglan that get you closer to the action, while staying safe and dry with a nice glass of something in hand :) Highly recommended.

We absolutely loved our stay here. The property was in perfect condition and with everything we needed, including really great small touches (raglan roast coffee, nice bed linen etc). It’s right over the water, couldn’t get closer to the surf, and everything was super easy. Thanks so much! Would stay here again without hesitation

A wee gem.
You could not be closer to the sea and the gate at the bottom of the property, that opens onto the sea path is totally 'magic garden'. The flat is is very well designed and makes the absolute most of a relatively small space through clever design. Comfortable and with a bachy vibe but at the same time everything is fresh and modern. The listing's pictures are totally accurate and lying in the spa listening to the surf is just the icing on the cake. Highly recommended.

Whale Bay - out of Raglan
Property was as stated and very clean and comfortable. We stayed in winter so although we love the beach it was noisy due to the surf being so rough even with earplugs at night.

The perfect place to relax!
We had a great stay at the Whale Bay Surf Bach. The view was incredible, you didn’t need to go anywhere if you didn’t want to and could just soak in the views!
