Our stay at the Mokoia Downs Estate B&B was one of the highlights of our north island trip. Everything was perfect…the rooms, the breakfast, the location, the tranquility but what stands out above all is the genuine hospitality of Mick and Teresa! They are delightful, attentive and interesting hosts. And did I mention the homemade liqueurs that Mick makes? Well…they... More

Hosts Teresa and Mick have B&B down to an art. They have clearly given much thought to every detail to make sure the stay was not only comfortable but memorable. This place has all the comforts of home; including a delicious home cooked breakfast with homemade bread, jams and crepes. The room and private bathroom were impeccably clean and Wi-Fi... More

Mick and Teresa will not let you down with the experience they provide. We arrived late in the afternoon and Mick was waiting for us with a nice clean room and bathroom. He showed us around the house and then brought us cocktail before sitting by the fireplace to tell us about Rotorua and the farm stay, made for quite... More

On my recent motorcycle trip to New Zealand, I had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful place. It makes you feel as if you are a hundred miles away from the daily hustle and bustle. And yet it very close to all the attractions and facilities in Rotorua. Mick and Teresa made every effort to make sure my stay... More

We had a superb stay at the Mokoia Downs B&B. The kids loved the experience and the array of friendly animals waiting to be fed. We had to persuade our daughter to leave without Mick and Teresa's donkey - Chico - as my daughter was dead set on bringing him home with us! We all loved the great breakfast feast... More

After a long journey through bad weather, arriving at Mokoia Downs was heaven sent. Warm, clean, cosy rooms, welcoming and relaxed hosts who soon made us feel we were staying with old friends. Breakfast was outstanding: delicious home made muesli, fruit salad, fresh laid eggs, home made marmalade, beautifully presented. My 12 year old and I loved helping Teresa feed... More

My reviews and others show New Zealand is the country of superlatives. It is all so beautiful and relaxed, and it is filled with people who genuinely enjoy other people and go into the business of making those other people happy. So let me introduce Mick and Teresa. You would have thought we were the most interesting people in the... More

Mokoia Downs offer a beautiful rural B&B, where the hosts naturally show what warm hospitality and true personal interest is all about. Although we stayed only one night, we will remember this vey quiet country setting for the fresh eggs and agricultural produce, including the home brewed whisky/ spirits/ the rich and amply breakfast/ the well advised early morning walk...

We were planning to stay 2 nights but stayed 4! The home cooked breakfast was plentiful and amazing with freshly made smoothies and home made muesli and fruit salad. Plus home baked bread. I'm not a big bread eater but couldn't resist the warm bread straight from the bread maker :) Mick and Teresa are super friendly and generous. They... More

We had a great two-night stay in March. Stayed in the detached room with private bathroom. The owners Mick and Teresa were terrific hosts -- perfectly walking the line between being present and available, and giving us our space to enjoy the property on our own. Their recommendations for what to see and do in Rotorua were spot on. Breakfasts... More
