Patuwai ('By the Water')

 Very happy, the bach was great, good location, well maintained, plenty of space and beds, loved the decks. We had a great time and would rent it again next time a large group of us stay in Whangamata. 

Te Punga Lodge - The Perfect Year-Round Getaway!

 Loved everything about the property, well equipped, beautiful surroundings and even a one hole pitch and putt. A swimming pool would have taken it to a whole other level, but wasn't a major. Beds all super comfy, plenty of room for everyone and entertaining was a breeze in the super kitchen. Felt palatial yet very homely and comfortable. 

Patuwai ('By the Water')

 Great place to stay, close to beach, dairy and beautiful estuary. 

O SO CLOSE TO THE BEACH! AND PERFECT LOCATION!

 A beautiful and well planned house that you can make your home while there. Near to the beach and town. Park your car and walk where you would like to go.
