We had an amazing 6 days stay at Rata Ridge. For the first 3 days we had our 2 daughters and family with us. A total of 10 - 6 adults and 4 children. After our family left we had 3 days with 2 friends from Auckland staying with us. It was amazing how perfect Rata Ridge was for both groups. From playing games with grandkids to candle light dinners with friends we could not have asked for more. The house is well resourced with glorious views and plenty of spaces to relax. It is a pleasant walk to a beautiful beach and a large diary. There is a very efficient fireplace with an excellent supply of good firewood. The home is very clean and tidy and easily cleaned. I would fully recommend Rata Ridge for a large family group or a small friendship group. Thanks for allowing us to stay - we will be back!!!
