A great Kiwi batch. Really well equipped and very clean. Even though you can’t see the sea, you can hear it and the backyard is very sheltered and sunny. Lots of bird life. There is so much to do in and around Punakiki. We loved our stay ( and even better we had a whole week of sunshine). Would highly recommend this property.

Cosy older home that is walking distance from all the sights in Punakaiki. Very comfortable beds!
This holiday home is in a fabulous spot - so close to the beach, lowland rata/rimu/nikau forest, and of course Dolomite Point and the blowholes. The best part of the home is the deck where native birds came in close, kereru in the kowhai, tui, bellbird and weka. Unfortunately the home, whilst clean, smelt musty and off putting. The decor is dated and tired, and the kitchen and bathroom are rudimentary and not very inviting. Even though I got a discount for a longish stay, it was still well overpriced. Had I known what it was like I wouldn't have stayed there. I think $60 per night is reasonable if you can handle the smell, not $150. The nasty environmental weeds in the neglected garden are also a worry to the surrounding ecosystem - Tradescantia (wandering willie) and kahili ginger should be removed to prevent invasion of the beautiful lush, lowland forest, The garden reflects the house - a state of neglect.
Response from Owner
Thank you for the nice comments regarding the beautiful location of our bach. It really is a stunning spot. We feel that the price of $150 per night is competitive for the area and I’m sorry that you felt otherwise. We’ve had many happy guests in the past (both on this and other websites), so the 1 star review really surprises us. The bach is clearly an older style, as shown in the photos and we feel that this really adds to it’s charm. We appreciate the feedback regarding the house and garden. Unfortunately due to covid, our bach hasn’t been used as much as usual and this would have contributed to the musty smell that you were sensitive to. We’re currently in the process of choosing a heatpump to get installed in the future and this should significantly help.
