About this Holiday House

There are TWO SELF-CONTAINED UNITS in this holiday home in a beautiful waterfront environment, a short distance away from the sandy beach, in a wonderful nature setting. It is situated at the top of Golden Bay, North of Collingwood township, at the very base of Farewell Spit. It can sleep a maximum of 10/11 people, 6-7 in the Main Unit and 4 in the Studio, rented in Tandem or individually. During peak holiday season (mid December - end of January) and due to high demand, we try to rent out the 2 units together, which suits bigger family groups. The 'MAIN UNIT' has 2 bedrooms, and also a sofa/bed in the lounge area. The 'STUDIO' has 1 bedroom and a bunkbed in the Lounge. Both units have their own kitchen- and bathroom facilities, and separate entrances. From here, you could explore Farewell Spit, the spectacular Wharariki Beach, nearby hilltop-walks on DOC Farm Park Reserve, more serious tramping in Kahurangi National Park (Heaphy Track) go for a swim or take the kayak to the Lagoon to explore, or a quiet leisurely stroll on the beach and gathering cockles (clams) at low tide. A 5-minute walk will take you to the local Cafe with a stunning view over Farewell Spit. Or why not relax and chill out on the sheltered veranda of " Puponga Time" looking at the lagoon across the road. Horse trekking is on DOC land of Puponga.

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.
Katerina
Highly recommend Puponga Time to get away, relax and escape from the ‘noise and haste’ of routine life. Studio was cLean, comfortable, homely and inviting and really well stocked! We enjoyed the setting and peace and quiet amongst the song of the birds. Puponga Tine is well located to take advantage of the wonderful local walking tracks, and the amazing Wharariki beach coastal walk. Owners Serge and Carole went the extra mile to make our stay comfortable.

We were 2 families and enjoyed the layout of these well appointed and maintained units. The outdoor space was particularly good with the covered veranda. Thanks we have fond memories already
