About this Holiday House

Charming and comfortable 3 bedroom character miners cottage, in a lovely secluded and sheltered location. Relax in the outdoor dining/cooking area, or on a nice soft armchair on the verandah or on the spacious lawns around the cottage. Cottage is equipped with modern bathroom, washing machine, new electric range & fridge/freezer. Keep warm and cosy in the winter with the Shacklock wood range which is also great for cooking and baking. Dry firewood supplied. This 1905 cottage is a traditional kiwi bach. Please note there is no TV, dishwasher and you need to bring your own linen (theres plenty of duvets etc), but otherwise you will find all you need. The beach is 80m away. Stroll out to the "Hole in the Rock" at low tide and observe seals. Kayak the estuary and enjoy the fabulous land and seascapes of Puponga Farm Park and Farewell Spit. Heaps of farm and beach walks close by, including spectacular Wharariki Beach. There is plenty for everyone - Scenic walks, swimming, boating, surfcasting, shellfish gathering, surfing, sand dune sliding and exploring. Safari tours pass by daily and horse trekking is just up the road. Pakawau has a cafe and convenience store, less than 10 mins away. Kayaks, BBQ, badminton net & racquets supplied. And if you do get a wet day, theres plenty of games in the cupboard or local history picture books to browse.

Puponga is a very peaceful and quiet place. The miner's cottage is old and quaint but had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. We had a very restful but also active time, with lots of walks on the doorstep. Many thanks.

Second time visit for us. Again perfect! Warm cozy cottage served us well while we had a wet weekend! It gave us time to get into some puzzles. We will return again for sure. Thanks John and Jeanine
