  • Rent Upper (4 people+, price varies) and overflow to Lower by adding (upto 8 people, for $50/night)
  • Fantastic beach and cliff walks on stunning West coast black sand beaches

Absolutely fabulous South and West views over Mokau Beach all the way past White Cliffs to Mt Taranaki. 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 (king double, queen double, 2x double/single bunks, 2x single), and a further 2+ possible.

Upstairs has bathroom with shower, master bedroom, sunny porch room with queen double, and spacious kitchen/lounge/dining area dominated by huge picture windows facing Nth, Sth and W. In winter, all made cosy by ceiling panel heaters.

Downstairs comprises lounge with single bed, double/single bunk; kitchen with table and chairs; shower; and bedroom (double/single bunk, single bed). A second toilet is outside adjacent to the downstairs entrance. Electric heaters available for downstairs.

North side of the house has a flat, sunny sheltered lawn (ok for tents). Garden only partially fenced.

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

  • Great authentic kiwi bach with beautiful sea views

    Great authentic kiwi bach with beautiful sea views. Rooms downstairs seemed a bit damp but had good modern wall heaters so no problem. upstairs was very nice, large, but cosy & comfortable with everything we needed. Great for our little ones with toys, games, highchair, TV, DVDs for rainy days and the bush track direct to the beach was an adventure itself for them. They loved playing on the beach. We plan to come back again - fun family summer holiday for all ages.

  • Simply stunning views from every upstairs room bar the bathroom

    Simply stunning views from every upstairs room bar the bathroom. Huge windows and a great deck. A well loved family bach with everything we needed to relax. I loved how we could descend to the beach via a track, swim in the waves, then stand under a small waterfall to rinse off. The Whitebait Inn had good takeaway fish and chips too. A bit off traffic noise, but not an issue. A truly authentic piece of New Zealand paradise. None of us wanted to leave.
