Our cosy bach is in the centre of Mokau village, between the Main Road and the ocean; sea, surf, river, cafes and swimming pool all a short stroll. Enjoy the peace and quiet of this secluded beach settlement.

Mokau is a great place to leave the stress of the city behind.

Great views of Mount Taranaki from the beach. Short drive to The 3 Sisters and Elephant rock. Enjoy a river cruise or game of golf ($5 all day). Go cave exploring or beach combing. Play games on our large section or just sit and relax on the deck. Wander though our local museum or go whitebaiting (seasonal). Sit by our warm log fire for inside comfort or the all weather shelter outside.

  • Amazing Bach

    Amazing Bach. Awesome facilities and a good distance from everywhere. The seclusion is great as not a lot of noise is heard

    Location very peaceful. Property very comfortable but could do with some updating, particularly of bathroom and kitchen facilities.

    A nice homely bach, there were a few lights not working but we managed. The beds were comfortable and we all slept well. The birds were all around so Tui Haven lived up to its name. It was warm and cosy on a fairly wet weekend.
