Puka is located in a rural setting, conveniently located for those people wishing to travel to both Palmerston North and Wellington.

Puka has been tastefully decorated, sourcing decor, from Spain, Mediterranean, Italy and Bali to create a unique atmosphere. Egyptian cotton sheets on a queen size bed and a deep claw foot bath allow for maximum comfort and relaxation. The accommodation allows you to have a wine on the deck in privacy watching the sun go down. This might be at the end of a hard day tramping in the Tararuas or fishing off Waitarere beach or mountain biking on near by trails. Kitchen facilities (microwave, electric frypan, induction element, grill oven with all cooking equipment required) is available for those who wish to self cater or a range of restaurants are also available with 2 minutes drive. Puka is set in beautiful gardens and your hosts Anne and David will ensure that you have the best experience possible, providing home grown organic honey, berries (when in season). Unlike some accommodation in Levin, the quiet rural garden setting ensures a private, relaxing stay at the same price as you would pay in a motel.

For those people who are artistically inclined, there is an upstairs art studio available to indulge your artistic streak (at no extra cost, but booking in advance please).

While Puka is ideally suited to a couple; we are able to provide a single mattress at no extra cost for a third person.

Two mountain bikes available free to use.

So come and enjoy a comfortable, relaxing stay in a rural environment that will allow guests to experience a slice of real New Zealand life.

  • Puka is a gorgeous wee gem with a divinely comfortable bed

    Puka is a gorgeous wee gem with a divinely comfortable bed. I wish I'd been less busy so I could have enjoyed the house and garden more - maybe had a fire outside or another bath. If I'm ever in Levin again I know where I'll be staying.

    Even though looks nice in photos, the photos do not do this place justice. It is absolutely gorgeous. You walk past owner's place to get to it, but once there you are in your own little secluded world - surrounded by tall trees, birds singing - with comfortable & ample outdoor seating to enjoy it. We were there on a hot day, and inside was a cool haven - completely private once again, very comfortable bed, stunner of a bathroom with large shower & claw foot bath - the whole place beautifully furnished - and feeling like someone's home, not a soul-less motel / hotel suite. Just one criticism - the Pool should be removed from list of features, as at end December (well into summer) it was empty. Other than that - Puka Cottage FAR exceeded our expectations - a real credit to the owners and amazing value for money too. Just book it! :)

    We enjoyed 2 nights in this beautiful little hideaway set on a bush and garden lifestyle block. The cottage was spacious and very nicely appointed. There are lots of windows and outdoor spots to sit and enjoy the garden and farm views. It was very convenient to be only a 5 minute drive to central Levin but was very nice to be staying in the countryside. We have business to attend locally and may visit once or twice a year - this is the best place to stay in Levin. Ann and Dave, thanks for having us and for being such lovely hosts. We'll see you next time! :)

  • The property was lovely and very clean

    The property was lovely and very clean. The pictures on the website are true to the actual place. A very peaceful, private setting with a comfortable bed and large bath area with a nice modern shower. The kitchenette is well set up if you would like to make your own meals there. Very easy access to downtown Levin while still having the country feel. I would definitely book this property again.
