About the property

Bach or holiday home, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 12)

Absolutely fabulous South and West views over Mokau Beach all the way past White Cliffs to Mt Taranaki, which our builder claims is "Best view in Mokau". Stroll on spacious, wild and exhilarating beaches with bleached driftwood and big surf. Warm and 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 and 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

We used Mokino as a base for our team while we were working in the area.

  • 4 of 5

We used Mokino as a base for our team while we were working in the area. It was comfortable and ideal for our needs. The views are stunning, shame we didn't get more time to take advantage of the beach etc. We would be very happy to book this batch again if our work takes us to this area.

A great bach with a view to die for from every window! A stunning place to spend the night with my little dog (who particularly enjoyed his play on the beautiful black sand beach the next morning).

Simply stunning views from every upstairs room bar the bathroom.

  • 5 of 5

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.
