  • We had a lovely long weekend at Punga Lodge

    We had a lovely long weekend at Punga Lodge. The house was huge and even nicer than it looked in the pictures. There's plenty of room for a family or big group. I wouldn't recommend it to someone with small children due to all the stairs. The view from the top room is stunning and we really liked Pukawa Bay. There were a few small issues which we reported to Bachcare and I'm sure they'll get sorted. We'll definitely be back for another relaxing getaway, especially as we could take our dogs.

  • Fabulous bach, we really enjoyed our short stay here

    Fabulous bach, we really enjoyed our short stay here. There is more than enough room for 6 people and the bach is very well equipped with everything that is needed for a comfortable stay. We loved the roof terrace with views over the lake and all the Tui's. Great location for accessing the central plateau and all that has to offer, would definitely recommend. Thank you for the stay!

  • Beautiful location amongst native trees and great views of Lake Taupo

    Beautiful location amongst native trees and great views of Lake Taupo. There were some great walks in Pukawa Bay. The house was comfortable and tidy and had all the facilities we needed.

  • A lovely casual/comfy bach for a weekend away

    A lovely casual/comfy bach for a weekend away. The view of the lake from the top bedroom is great and the lush ferns & bush that surround the property make you feel just that little more isolated from the real world. The clincher for us, however, was that we were able to take our doggie. While the property is not fenced, it's on a very quiet culdesac that meant we didn't have to worry about our pup wandering in front of oncoming traffic. A great weekend was had by all!
