Yes we are 4km from the Pukenui village. However most people like the tranquil setting. I understand the comment regarding woman on her own, however we rented this accommodation to a single woman for two+ years without any incident or problems with security (so I guess this depends on the person maybe?) Due to the time of the year and high demand and the fact that I had to employ a cleaner on holiday rates. I had to put my daily charge at a reasonable rate to cover this as well as tax and commission. Although I understand that it was just one person and costs add up, however it is the same amount of work for one person as for two people.
