  • We had a wonderful stay at Pukeko Retreat

    We had a wonderful stay at Pukeko Retreat. We just loved the location - perfect for a complete rest and great for kids. Jude very kindly left us a lovely welcome gift and this was very much appreciated after a long drive. We would absolutely recommend Pukeko Retreat - it is only a short drive to Rotorua and all of the activities. We would love to visit for longer next time.

  • Loved the rural location

    Loved the rural location. The house was perfect for us, travelling as two couples. We appreciated the meringues, wine and lemon juice left for us. Loved the peaceful surroundings, and the cows!
