Highly recommend this B&B if you find yourself in the Rotorua area. it's 8k outside the town but the advantage of that is you are far enough from the Geysers to escape the smell... Mokoia Downs is a hidden gem in a residential area which feels like it's in the middle of the countryside.
Our hosts, Mick and Teresa were so welcoming. The breakfasts were amazing, all fresh produce, from homemade yogurt and museli, to freshly baked bread.
Afternoon tea with more freshly baked scones or treats were always a welcome surprise as it was quite an active holiday.
Teresa even took me to a great part of the Lake close by to go for jogging.
Great hosts and a beautiful home! Highly recommend.
