After a harrowing three months organising home renovations, we were badly in need of a short break in peaceful surroundings.
We certainly found that at Puketapu.
We were warmly welcomed and the cottage had everything we required.
The surroundings were very peaceful with plentiful bird life, the odd rabbit and a meadow of grazing sheep.
We would certainly recommend this host and her cottage to anyone requiring a peaceful haven.
We hope to return another time, probably in the summer.

Beautifully decorated cozy cottage. Friendly and helpful hosts. Not too far from town. New carpet throughout (even the bathroom), modern heritage style decor. A quiet retreat where you can hear the morning chorus of birds. Best mandarins you will ever taste, freshly picked from the tree. Lovely gardens and rural outlook. Great place to just relax.
Loved our stay at the country cottage. Beautiful trees and bird live. Mel was friendly and helpful , my husband said more refreshing than staying in a motel.
A lovely setting, very peaceful and relaxing
We had a fantastic time, were able to swim in the pool and were also able to borrow bikes to do a short bike ride by the river. Very friendly and helpful hosts. The cottage was clean and the bed very comfortable. We would highly recommend this a place to stay.
A very relaxing spot with a great deal of charm
Absolutely loved it, so relaxing and very hospitable host. Thank you.
The cottage was everything it promised, with clean and tidy amenities and relaxing surrounds. Most enjoyable. An easy place to unwind and enjoy. Can't thank our hosts enough.
