With donkeys, sheep, hens, a guinea pigs goldfish and a wide variety of ducks and birds in residence, Mokoia Downs offers a farmstay-style experience with opportunities for you to explore the grounds, feed and pet the animals, and even gather the freshly-laid eggs for your breakfast the following day. The kids (both young and old) may wish to take part in a fun treasure hunt that takes you to hidden places aroumd the property in search for the missing ‘treasure’ .
Prior to arrival, all guests receive a “confirmation of booking” email which also contains some very useful information regarding the many things-to-do in the surrounding area. It also has detailed directions to Mokoia Downs to help make your arrival as simple and hassle-free as possible.
From the moment our guests arrive at Mokoia Downs in the afternoon, they feel “at home.” Once they have checked in and freshened-up, they are given, (if they wish), a leisurely tour of the complimentary facilities that they can enjoy during their stay including the swimming pool, movie theatre, BBQ area, conservatory and finally our Reading Room where they can relax and help themselves to our range of homemade liqueurs.
Breakfast at Mokoia Downs is a truly relaxed affair. As you wake each morning, the aroma of home-baked bread and fresh coffee fills the air. You can then enjoy a varied breakfast of homemade muesli (and other cereals), fresh seasonal fruit, (and smoothies made with these), homemade yoghurts, and of course the fresh bread which we bake every day. There will also be a daily cooked dish. Everything you would need to prepare you for your day ahead!
