  • Great location with farewell spit just up the hill

    Great location with farewell spit just up the hill. Beautiful white sandy beaches all around, just a short walk up the hill to reach them. House was so well stocked with everything you could possibly need for a holiday away, great touch having the 2 seater sea kayak onsite. Would have loved to have stayed longer, sadly work calls. Will definitely come back again

  • Comfortable stay for our group of 11

    Comfortable stay for our group of 11. It rained much of our time in Puponga Bay, and so we didn't get to enjoy the kayak and bikes as much as we would have liked. However, the bach was comfortable and roomy enough for us to all be able to be indoors together for a very rainy day.
