Guest Feedback

As your host, I really love what I do, and believe that this website represents what Mokoia Downs offers our guests. I hope that the information here on the website about my home, the property and facilities, you will also have gleaned something of my approach to running a B&B.

In the final analysis, however, no matter how accurate this representation of Mokoia Downs is, the most important basis for you to make an informed choice is learning about the experiences of guests who have already stayed here.

In other words, don't just take my word for it! I encourage you to check out the independent guest reviews and hope that these will help you decide that Mokoia Downs is the right place for you to stay. If you have any questions, however, or would like more information please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Your host
