  • Hi I am looking at Rata chalet. What in In kitchenette ie does it have some form of stovetop to cook? Thanks

    Hi and thanks a lot for your question. The Rata is our smallest unit and only has a mini kitchenette with a toaster, kettle and microwave. It is up the top of the property so has awesome views. Rose the next biggest room has more cooking. Thanks

  • How many bedrooms does this chalet have? I can't tell if the beds are in the same room or not. Many thanks, Lucy

    Hi Lucy - thanks for your enquiry. I can't see a date on this so not too sure when you did message? The Kauri unit has a queen bed and one single in the same bedroom as well as a pull out sofa bed downstairs. Hope that helps, Thank you.

Private decks with breathtaking sunsets and sea views Grafton is a place to relax and enjoy the surroundings. Its a peaceful setting nestled on the hills of Thames yet only 5 mins to town. We have uniquely designed s/c, 1 & 2 bedroom cedar chalets.

We have owned Grafton since November 2012. We love working here and meeting people daily and sharing our piece of paradise with our guests. We are 'kiwis' but have spent a large amount of time living away from home travelling the world.
