Pukawa Haven is a 3 bedroom 2 bathroom Pukawa Bay holiday home... This is the ultimate choice for peace and privacy! Nestled amongst native bush at the end of a quiet cul de sac, you will awaken to the sound of birdsong and a nearby babbling creek.

This Pukawa holiday home enjoys multi-level open plan living with large windows and french doors to bring the tranquil scenery indoors... Stay cosy indoors by the fire, or unwind on the spacious and secluded wraparound deck with bush and lake views!

This Pukawa accommodation comfortably sleeps 8 guests. Bedrooms 1 and 2 each have a queen bed, while bedroom 3 is equipped with 2 single beds and a single bunk set. The 2 single beds can be joined to make a Super King bed, and there is an additional fold out sofa bed in the living area.

Pukawa Haven is totally secluded, but only a few minutes walk away to the lake through a scenic bush track. Here there is a safe swimming and boating beach, where you can picnic and enjoy the sun. Golf, bush walks, hot pools, rafting, restaurants and one of the world's finest fly fishing rivers are all only minutes drive away. In winter the ski slopes are only 40 minutes by car.

Everything you need for a tranquil, relaxing retreat awaits... Welcome to Pukawa Haven!

Me and my group of friends had a really great time in our beautiful bach. And because of the great customer service everything happened very well. I would totally recommend booking with Bachcare!

Stayed February 2020

enjoyable place to stay with lovely roomy living areas upstairs and great outdoor living.

Stayed December 2019

The top floor is lovely, comfortable and warm with all day sun, and a very well equipped kitchen. Beautiful being surrounded by the native bush.

Stayed August 2019

It was a lovely property, well laid out and easy to use and access everything that was needed.

Stayed June 2019

Lovely stay overall, and incredible bush setting.

Stayed June 2019

We enjoyed a weekend away stay at Pukawa. The silence, peace and tranquility was lovely! A roaring fire and a cosy winters retreat - close enough for us to head up to Whakapapa for our kids first ever play in the snow - then back home to enjoy another night.

Stayed May 2019

Great house nice and warm everything you need and more

Stayed February 2019

I wouldn't stay here again and don't recommend it to others unless they are travelling as a couple - in which case they can have a nice bedroom in the upper half of the house. Anyone relegated to the dungeon downstairs will not have a nice holiday (it's dank, dark and dirty).

Bachcare replied

Hi Hollie - we really appreciate your feedback on this property and our Holiday Manager is working closely with the owners to rectify the issues downstairs. We've had great feedback from guests about this area lately so it's awesome that things have improved!

Stayed October 2018

An excellent property set in a lovely bush setting and great bush walks close by. Would recommend it and would go back ourselves.

Stayed August 2018

Wonderful place to stay. Had everything we needed and more. We will definitely be back.

Stayed April 2018

Pukawa Haven is an amazing place for a get away. Nestled in stunning native bush it is just a short work down the hill to the lake. A great place to take the kids or friends. It has everything you will need.
