  • Great little spot, elevated and with lovely views

    Great little spot, elevated and with lovely views. Perfect for a couple, but in our case had two extras and had plenty of room for them on sofa bed. Little deck off the front door, couldn't stay for long but would be happy to book again.

    What a beautiful spot for a quiet relaxing weekend away! And those views were stunning! Highly recommend staying at the Punga Pad - it's a great central spot to explore the heads from, and a comfortable place with all the amenities you need to make yourself at home.
