Pukeraki loosely translates as Place up High (literally, Sky Hill). Our clients, John, Jenny and extended family, are passionate outdoor folks, particularly enjoying skiing and mountain biking.

The family was looking for a mountain retreat that was cosy for a couple, but could easily cope with gatherings of family and friends of up to twelve people.

John and Jenny were looking for a warm and friendly retreat; a place of sanctuary and peace where they could relax after a hard day’s riding or skiing.
