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 :-) 

Beauty on the Beach - Waipu Cove

 We were a group of friends and everyone was enchanted with the place and everyone is planning to come back. We have spent a unique week end.

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

 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.

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

 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.

Cedar Beach House, Ocean Beach and Estuary Views

 We loved everything about the property, it had EVERYTHING you needed! Lovely and helpful neighbors. Minutes away from the water for a nice dip in Bland Bay. The drive up from Auckland was just beautiful! Thank for you a great time away :)
