There is a lot to do and see in the Rotorua area, and we chose Mokoia Downs to be home base for our exploration. The property is an oasis, hidden away in a residential area and around the corner from a small alpaca farm. It is a short drive away from downtown and all the nearby attractions. Mick and Teresa...

Our family of 4 (girls aged 11 & 8) stayed as Mokoia Downs for 3 nights in January as part of our trip around New Zealand's north island. From the minute we entered the long driveway 10 mins north of Rotorua we knew we had found a holiday within a holiday. On the inside there were comfortable rooms, Mick's bar...

I've been a long time user of TripAdvisor but never registered to write a review before, but after staying at Mokoia Downs I had to register and sing the praises of this B&B. From the sweet treats Teresa made us each day, to the wonderful breakfasts from just laid eggs and just picked fruits, to to movie room with its...

This B&B can't be seen from the street and we drove by the entrance when we first got there. We then noticed the small sign and drove down the driveway to the "petrolstation" parking. Mick made us feel welcome right away with a tour of the property and a drink in the sitting area. When we told him our plan...

We stayed in 17 different places on our recent trip to ANZ and this got our vote as the number one. Other reviews have said it all but it is impossible to describe how welcome Mick and Theresa made us feel. So many personal touches; from doing my laundry and returning it folded to the 'welcome home' baking left in...

This is a beautifully made B&B. So much love has been put into this home, you feel so welcomed by the owners who were just amazing people. The pool was a great surprise and I was even more overwhelmed by the private cinema, stacks upon stacks of movies plus an additional kitchen if you feel the urge to whip up...

As soon as we arrived Mick was there to great us with a welcoming smile and warm handshake. It wasn't long before we met Teresa also, whose warmth and sincerity stood out from the moment we met. Our stay was so relaxing and a lot of fun, especially in the evening as we sat around listening to stories and sipping...

We returned to Mokoia Downs again this year and had a wonderful welcome from our charming hosts. This is a superb place to stay, the room was very comfortable and the spacious sitting areas are most attractive with views over the grounds. Children and adults can enjoy feeding the animals in the company of Teresa. Last but not least the...

My family and I stayed at Mokoia Downs B&B a few days after Christmas and had an outstanding time on the farm! My youngest daughter looked forward each morning to feeding the animals with Teresa.
