Absolutely fabulous South and West views over Mokau Beach all the way past White Cliffs to Mt Taranaki, which our builder claims has the "Best view in Mokau". Stroll on spacious, wild and exhilarating beaches with bleached driftwood and big surf. Warm & very cozy whatever the season and love the Sundowners ! You really won't want to go home.

"Mokino" is situated in a friendly cluster of 7 houses midway between Mokau & Awakino (3mins by car). Shared foot track provides direct access to the beach below, a right turn will bring you to a small cave and waterfall. Great fishing from the beach (kite/torpedo) or cast a line at the Mokau or Awakino river mouths, also whitebait during season (August 15 to November 30). Excellent beach and cliff walks in the area (beach islands and loads of caves to explore). At high tide Mokau river has sheltered swimming/boating, particularly when sea is rough.

Our family bach is well equipped - just bring your personal items, food, towels and linen (sheets and pillow cases - sleeping bags for kids). Great for 2 families, with 12 beds (3x queen doubles, 2x double/single bunks), and a further 2+ possible.

Upstairs has master (queen) bedroom, sunny (queen) panorama room, shower/basin/toilet, and spacious well equiped kitchen/lounge/dining area dominated by huge windows facing Nth, Sth and W. In winter, all made cosy by ceiling panel heaters.

Downstairs comprises 3 bedrooms: double/single bunk, queen, and double/single bunk. Adjacent to downstairs entrance is shower/basin/toilet. Electric wall heaters in all rooms.

North side of the house has a flat, sunny sheltered lawn (ok for tents). Awesome hot outdoor shower for washing down after your swim. Garden only partially fenced.

Mokau has 2 cafes, rural butcher, 9 hole 'summer' golf course and plenty of local history at the museum/gallery. Awakino has a hotel, bottleshop and restaurant with accommodation. Highly recommend the Blue Boat cruise, on Mokau River
