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.

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.

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

My husband and I have just finished visiting with his parents and as a treat they booked 'Puponga Time' for the four of us + 1 (us four + plus my husbands cousin). After a stunning drive over the mountain from Nelson and the breath taking views of the valley of Golden bay as you descend the other side, we rocked up at Puponga Time.

As anyone that knows me I can be quite particular in the places that I stay in, (demanding, critical etc.) I guess as the Sales Director for Virgin Holidays I have to be.

Puponga Time is quite simply a brilliant getaway, you can tell that Serge and Carole really want their guests to feel welcome and special and they are successful on both these counts, the units are really well stocked, simply but tastefully furnished with a great full length veranda with a Foos ball table - great for us guys after a glass of wine or two!

So, to Serge & Carole, thank you for allowing us to stay and for the high quality you keep your property in.

Puponga Time has given me memoires that will last a lifetime.
