I spent a couple of relaxing days at Mokoia Downs in November 2012. The property is expansive, quiet and close by car to attractions. I have never been better taken care of than here. Every afternoon when I returned from an excursion, I would be greeted with freshly baked goods and tea. Evenings guests would gather around the bar and could sample Mick's liquors or have a glass of wine and talk about their adventures. Breakfast was delicious. I had difficulty deciding what to focus on. Theresa took care of helping me plan my days and the Maori dinner show.
Although I did not bring children, Mick and Theresa were equally attentive to the needs of other guests' children. There is plenty for children to do on the grounds including feeding the livestock-- friendly donkeys, sheep, and chickens.
I had no time to peruse the library, but it looked impressive.
I hope to be back for more.
