The Lodge is located just off the road but down from it so there is very little road noise and anyway the rooms open out onto the bush so you have the cicadas to provide a far more pleasant background. The beach and the town are a short walk away on a path or walkway, bring a torch or your...

Great value for money! So warm and welcoming, felt very cozy. The location is terrific! Far enough away from the town to feel on an island but close enough to walk to cafes and restaurants with ease, either on the roads or around the rocks at low tide. Wineries within walking distance, basically everything you need! Amazingly friendly hosts and...

Just returned from a 2 night stay at the Punga lodge at Waiheke Island. Neat and clean, the rooms very freshly painted and tidy. The hosts were friendly and served afternoon tea with baked treats. We took our pet and he too enjoyed the stay. There was Wifi available, TV, hairdryer and full kitchen facility including heater for chilly nights....

A fantastic B&B lodge in Little Oneroa on Waiheke Island. Dyan was such a warm and welcoming host, as were Rob and the rest of their staff/family/friends. We honestly feel like we made a bunch of new friends during our stay. Continental breakfast each morning on the deck was really special, with homemade muffins (a different flavor each morning) and...

A great relaxing lodge that is easily accessible from the bus which runs from the main Fullers port. Upon arrival you are met by the friendly owner who is great. She will go out of her way for you and help with any questions you have about the island. While here we toured some of the vineyards and she recommended...

Thank you for your comments. It's lovely to know that we are making people happy (even if the weather doesn't behave itself) and while I can't pin point who you are, thank you so much for staying with us - hopefully we will get to see you again some time. Cheers Dyan PS Made blueberry muffins again this morning.

Hosts Dyan and Rob are friendly and attentive, giving advice on local attractions and places to eat. Dyan's home baking is an amazing bonus and the service is beyond what I would expect in this price range.

Punga Lodge is a great place to get away and relax. Afternoon tea is a treat! Dyan was even happy to accommodate my wheat allergy. Dyan is very friendly and happy to suggest dinner options. I'm so glad we made the ferry journey across to Waihekiki!

Thank you for your lovely comments. It was wonderful to have you as a guest and allergies are easily taken care of - I've now got in the habit of always cooking some gluten free cakes or biscuits every day to make sure afternoon tea is going to work for everyone. Kind regards Dyan

Came here for wellness retreat. My first time to visit Waiheke Island and was amazed at the beautiful island. Punga lodge was amazing beautiful quiet place surrounded by bush. At night amazing sitting outside hearing the waves roaring down the galley at the beach. Loved the spa at the lodge and the big double room we had.
