 My partner and I had a fantastic stay with our 2 dogs, the location was great - just a few short steps to the beach, and the bach was quite comfortable to stay. We will be looking forward to coming for another visit!

Puka Bach ***MARCH 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! 

Puka Bach ***MARCH SPECIAL*** $95/night!!!

 We absolutely loved the house and the fact that it was right across from the beach. Although we were a bit unlucky with the weather, we still enjoyed our stay very much. A few of us got to enjoy the kayaks and my 3 year old son would go out to the trampoline whenever he got the chance to. Even though the weather wasn't as great as we were hoping for it to be, we were still able to keep entertained through the board games and the DVDs that were provided. Loved it, great stay!

 Great holiday home, ideal for kids being fully fenced. Very clean and well equipped!
