It's hard to believe you are only 25 minutes from Downtown Auckland in such a lovely setting with fabulous views! Jan & Graham are so friendly, the house is stunning with beautiful furnishings & immaculate presentation and the breakfast was superb.

Punanga Lodge is an oasis of calm. Jan and Graham were very welcoming when we arrived and showed us to our extremely comfortable, beautifully furnished room with an outlook on two sides through picture windows across the surrounding countryside. We were particularly pleased that they provided a list of places to eat within a short drive (ten minutes) from Punanga...

Punanga Lodge is easily reached from the Auckland Motorway within 10 minutes but feels a world apart in a rural and peaceful setting. At night it is completely quiet with only the call of moreporks to be heard. The Lodge is beautifully decorated with very high quality furnishings and fittings. The rooms bask in the evening sun with a sitting...
