  • Nice location with relaxing farm views

    Nice location with relaxing farm views. We stayed at Pukeko Place during some really cold Dunedin weather and Stuart made sure wood was stacked to make our stay comfortable.

  • Perfect for a quiet getaway

    Perfect for a quiet getaway. Great for toddlers and children. A beautiful white sand beach is a short walk away. This lovely, restful, relaxing cottage is perfect for a weekend away.

  • Property was fairly clean and adequate

    Property was fairly clean and adequate. Long beach is an amazing spot but I would stay at another Bach next time because of issues with rubbish and dealings with owner over bond. Good to see the info on rubbish has now been included in special conditions as this is a hassle when on holiday.

    Owner/manager responds:

    We were surprised when this guest left negative feedback oddly 2 months after staying, even after openly discussing and resolving any issues. The listing states that the bach be left in the condition as found - this guest clearly did not. They left all sorts of loose rubbish mixed in with the recycling that I had the unpleasant task of sorting, and re-bagging. We would have arranged an alternative if they had asked. We have only ever had wonderful positive feedback from many happy guests. :-)
