Puka Bach ***WINTER SPECIAL*** $85/night!!!

 It was just what we needed - we thought it was great. Quiet and relaxing, a home from home. Everything we needed had been thoughtfully provided. Perfect location, just across the road from the beach access - and what a beach! Miles and miles of white sand, a turquoise sea and no one else around. We were sad to leave and wish we could have stayed longer - we will be back for sure :-)

 Well appointed, no fuss, comfortable bach. Linen included is great- no need to lug blankets & towels. Dog friendly- our pooch did not manage to find an escape route.

 The owner was very easy to deal with friendly and good customer service. Gave us a great deal and even a late checkout time which made things a lot easier. Excellent bach and well equipped would recommend to anyone. The view and walk to the beach was great as well.

 Magnificient weather, warm water and good fishing. The beaches of the Peninsula were at their sparkling best. Humans and dogs alike had a great time. The bach was clean and welcoming as usual. We try to get up there at least once a year. Thanks once again Grant for sharing your seaside home with us.

 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!
