This place is so nice and positions you well to explore this area more closely. It’s comfortable and well appointed. You will sleep well at night. I would definitely recommend a stay of several days to do everything in the area. Your hosts are very friendly and helpful. Thank you Serge and Carole.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at "Puponga Time". The owners, Serge & Carole, are very friendly & hospitable. The accommodation was very comfortable, both inside & out. A short walk to the estuary & main beach & very central location for sight seeing.
Response from Owner
Thank you for your lovely feedback. For us very rewarding to have happy guests, enjoying our accommodation and all this nature environment has got to offer.
Kathy from Nelson
Wonderful stay. Quiet, clean, warm, comfortable. Very easy communication with owner and lovely welcome from property manager. Great base for exploring this end of Golden Bay. Loved the birds in the garden, tui, wood pigeon and a whole crowd of quails. Four nights and we still didn't have time for everything we wanted to do. A cosy spot to return to in the evenings and relax. Thank you.
