We had heard about this fantastic B & B from friends and family and were not disappointed in any way. From the moment we turned off the seemingly suburban street, we knew we were in for a treat. Mick and Theresa are the perfect hosts and have gone to amazing lengths to ensure that your experience is excellent. The importable...

My wife and I spent 2 days at Mokoia Downs where we were impressed by the wonderful care that Mick and Teresa gave to us. They took the time to learn about what we were interested in and introduced us to vendors and service providers who were just as fastidious in their care for customers. Mokoia Downs is also home...

We have just returned home after a nine week round the world trip and Mokoia Downs rates up the top of the list even though we only had a one night stay there. Our only mistake was not to be able to stay longer. It is a lovely property with excellent cosy and well appointed rooms. For a small'ish B...

Mokoia Downs B&B is a gem location with incredible hosts, Mic and Teresa. The farm has sheep (which love to take selfies with you), donkeys, chickens, hamsters, and the best people you will ever meet! We were amazed with delicious homemade breakfasts and snacks! On property is a movie theater, bar, sun room, play room for kids, and living room....

We stayed at Mokoia Downs as part of our honeymoon. Teresa and Mick are brilliant hosts and made us feel like we were staying with family rather than at a faceless hotel. The room was comfortable, the wifi fast and the breakfasts were some of the best meals we ate on honeymoon and set you up for a full day...

Mokoia Downs is probably the best B&B we have ever stayed at. We were there with our two children, age six and four, and Mokoia Downs is truly a little piece of paradise for the entire family. Where to start… - At Mokoia Downs, every day starts with a fully home made breakfast (including home made breads, jams, fruits and...

My fiancé and I loved our stay at Mokoia Downs. Our room was cozy and comfortable with our own decking area where we relaxed with a drink and some of Teresa's delicious home baking. Mick and Teresa are wonderful hosts, ready to offer advice about the local attractions whenever it is needed. We felt totally relaxed and at home, there...

We are just back from our New Zealand trip and Teresa and Mick's B&B Mokia Downs were the best we had. It is a quiet place with a wonderful Environment. A nice garden with a Pond where ducks swim, where you can watch or feed sheeps, donkeys or the ducks and where you won't hear anything at night. Where you...

I found this B&B on the internet and fell in love with it, making a special trip to Rotorua on my way to a conference, in part to stay at Mokoia Downs. Truly, it exceeded my expectations. The B&B is a perfect blend of nature's paradise and hominess. I couldn't agree more with what everyone says about Mick and Theresa,...

I throughally enjoyed my stay at Mokoia Downs. The room was exceptionally comfortable and there was brilliant attention to detail. The five acre property is gorgeous and provides for a very relaxing stroll. Feeding the farm animals was great fun. Mick and Teresa are so nice and accomodating. Each evening we had a drink at the bar with them and...
