Classic kiwi experience

 Location was great, so handy to the beach which was lovely and quiet. The bach was great for the dog being fully fenced. There was a little road noise but that didn't bother us ... we enjoyed sitting on the deck watching the sky divers. Was a very relaxing and peaceful holiday, we'd like to visit again. 

Panoramic Pukawa getaway

 Wow - what a view. We love Pukawa and this was a great place to stay.Quiet peaceful and relaxing - just what we were after.

absolute beachfront cute modern bach ...  wow

 Property was clean and tidy. Lovely views and beach seconds from the house. Lots of lovely decking for outside entertaining. Being able to bring our dog Milly was an extra bonus. Would stay at at this property again. 

Amazing sea views, contemporary architectural home

 This is a property with some wow factor, in an incredibly quiet location with stunning views. A real pleasure to stay here, and the ideal location for some R&R. Property owner was a friendly fella to deal with too.
