Puka Bach ***JAN/FEB SPECIAL*** $95/night!!!

 Great place! We had a marvellous family time and would hope to return sometime. Awesome things: toys for kids, beach right across the road, great outdoor living for summer (shame the BBQ ran out of gas), big BBQ, kayaks, the fishing (we took a long line), safe swimming for the children, great selection of DVDs (if you are that way inclined), comfy bean bags, close to other great beaches, quiet road so safe for kids on bikes. Good kiwi bach!
