Animal friendly chalet
Nestled on the side of a sunny, sheltered valley Punga Lodge looks out over native bush and bird life and has a mixture of self contained units and bed and breakfast rooms. Each room and self contained unit has a private deck, most overlooking the valley that runs down to the sea at Little Oneroa Beach, 150 metres from the Lodge, with a beautiful white sand swimming beach. And it is a short 12 minute walk to the main town of Oneroa.
It has one special animal friendly unit which is a two storey self contained chalet with lounge, full kitchen, bathroom and private deck at the lower level. Upstairs is a queen bedroom with a little deck and a twin room with two single beds.
The chalet has been adapted especially with dog owners in mind (but cats can come too) although we can only cater for sociable, well behaved animals up to 20 kg maximum. This unit is at a far corner of the property so your pets won’t be disturbed by other people walking past and it has a private grassed area in front including a penned off run with kennel which is visible from your deck.
The deck is gated so your pet can enjoy indoor/outdoor living and join you for a barbecue without the worry of him/her going walkabout. Inside we have a dog bed (and bowls of course) and the downstairs carpet has been replaced with special carpet tiles, easy for us to remove and clean if there is a whoopsie. There is a special outside bin for doggie doo.
The tariff is $180 per night for two plus a nightly charge of $20 for one cat or dog, or $30 for two animals. The same charges apply for extra people. If you are coming for a longer stay, five nights or more, there is no charge for your pets, or for children under 12 years.
Strictly for the humans, Punga Lodge has a spa pool available for private bookings at no extra charge, free wifi (and internet terminal in the reception). Plus complimentary homemade afternoon teas each day, served on the main deck at the B and B lodge (sorry, pets can’t come here) or delivered to your unit. You can also order a continental breakfast to your unit at $14 per person or join other guests for a continental breakfast buffet in the dining room or on the breakfast deck at $10 per person. Punga Lodge is renowned for its hospitality and home cooking with freshly made muffins for breakfast and a selection of cakes and biscuits for afternoon tea.
We have plenty of other accommodation including en suite bed and breakfast rooms from $145 per night and self contained units from $140 per night if you are bringing others with you who don’t have pets.
We do have pets of our own – two cats who are SPCA moggies called Tiger and Cookie who tend to run the place (but steer clear of the pet friendly chalet) and a little schnoodle dog (cross between a toy poodle and a miniature schnauser) called Spud who does like to visit the dog friendly unit to check out the residents. And he will joyfully join you for a play session with your dog if it is appropriate.
