You cannot beat the personalised service and attention from the owners. Location is awesome - a three minute walk to Little Oneroa beach, great takeaways, great kids playground, and store. 12 minute walk into Oneroa which is chock full of cafes and restaurants and little shops. Rooms in a thickly treed area with loads of native birds. Lovely! The spa...

Thank you for your kind words and thank you for staying with us - it was great to meet you all and didn't the weather work out well despite the forecasts. We look forward to hosting you again sometime in the future - I'm experimenting with a lemon brownie now that looks like it might be a winner. Kind regards...

This place is surrounded with great amount of trees which was really great. Not much noise here. We were on room number 1 on the main building. The rooms seemed alright but it was too hot from morning till the sun goes down. Night was great but had a lot of Spiders around the room few were on the bed....

Thank you for your comments - sorry about the spiders! The cleaners have a wonderful tool for dusting up high to get the pesky creatures and obviously they didn't do their job properly that day so my apologies for this. I will be taking this up with them so we can make sure it doesn't happen again. It was wonderful...

We stayed 2 nights and were treated to friendly, humorous and assistance second to none. The sounds of tui and wood pigeons in the mornings were relaxing, Dyan's breakfast, morning and afternoon teas were first class. A real bonus was their assistance with ferry bookings.

Thanks for a fantastic time! The location and lodge had plenty to offer even when the weather didn't cooperate. The owners were very nice to work with and we thoroughly enjoyed breakfast and afternoon tea. Definitely will try to stay here again if we are on Waiheke.

My partner and two wee doggies had the pleasure of having 3 nights stay at Punga Lodge. Everything was very nice. The Chalet we had with our two wee 4 legged children was most accommodating and very comfortable. The service was just lovely and a very convenient location. We were on the island for a wedding, so this was all...

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...

Thank you for taking the time to let us know how your stay was. It was great to meet you and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. We do enjoy people - that's why we like to provide our home baking so we can hopefully spoil you a little. Kind regards Dyan and Rob

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.

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.
