Guest reviews for Puka Lodge (Front dwelling)

We encourage reviews. Our review policy.
Stayed April 2021

It’s like you’ve time travelled back to the 90’s. Furnishings and decor could do with an update/clean. Locals are very friendly and the area is quite secluded/safe.

Easy and very organized now stress

Stayed December 2020

Super location, but definitely not suitable for 8 people as the 3rd bedroom is not big enough and beds not sufficient. Tidy holiday bach

Stayed December 2019

This is a great lockwood style home, it was perfect for our 5 grandchildren. Basic but comfortable, great access to the Lake. The village is known for its commitment to the native Bush and Birds so noise is mainly confined to nature. We woukd definitely return.

Thank you for the feedback! We have removed pet friendly as an option at this property. When you're looking for somewhere to take your furry friend, it's always good to search for 'inside welcome' - or check the amenities list for the fencing, as we always state if the property is fully fenced.
