The accommodations and hosts at Villa Heights Bed and Breakfast were adorable. John and Rosemary were so friendly and delightful. Our room was beautifully furnished and decorated. The cookies they baked and provided in our room were SO good! :) Breakfast each morning was fresh and delicious. The gardens out back are extensive and beautiful. Very lovely for a brief walk.
Would love to stay at Villa Heights again.

once again we were really pleased with trip advisor reviews. This b&b is a delight with spacious rooms and the full use of three large rooms including a dining room, conservatory and lounge room. John and Rosemary are a delight and work hard to make your stay memorable. There are lovely touches like freshly baked scones, slices and cakes each day, beverages in the fridge, chocolates etc. Their hospitality is amazing. The house is only about 10 minutes to the city and is set in beautifully manicured gardens in a rural setting. The house itself is remarkable as is its journey to its present location. This is well worth a visit. Our only small issue is the size of the shower which is prefabricated fibreglass and not very large - this can make hair washing difficult

When our hosts, greet you at the door, you feel like you have arrived at your best friends house. THeir friendliness and warmth fill the house and you feel at ease immediately.
We were welcomed with cake and beverages, all complementary. Even the beverages in the fridge are complementary.
The rooms are spacious and well appointed and luxurious.
The garden is a paradise !!

Slept beautifully in this quiet surrounding with the view to Mt. Taranaki.

The cooked Breakfast was excellent and we would stay here again.

We stayed with John and Rosemary for three nights where as well as having a thoroughly good time and treated as family members we were regaled with the story and looked at the photographs of the move of Villa Heights.

Purchased by the couple in the late 1900's the house was cut into three sections and moved 75km to its present home but only after 3 metres of earth was taken from the top of the hill and foundations/services put in.

Not that you could tell because the restoration has been immaculate as has the organic growth to give this perfect retreat overlooking Mount Taranaki and only 15 minutes from central New Plymouth. Add to this a wonderful garden, some good old Irish hospitality, good old fashion cooked breakfasts and not forgetting Daisy the lab then you have place you want to return to for future visits. We even got some washing done whilst we stayed with them.

Villa Heights has three guest rooms, all en-suite, Sky TV in each room together with a guest lounge and internet.

We booked this accommodation because of the glowing reviews posted by previous visitors. We were not disappointed and would make this our first choice in any future visit.

It is in a beautiful rural setting with an easy 10/15 minute drive to the City centre. The house is on a large plot approached by an impressive drive at the front and has extensive lovingly cared for gardens at the rear.

The house is a period piece with interior to match and fixtures, fittings and contents of a high standard. Our room was spacious with a high quality en suite and large comfortable bed. There is a large lounge for the use of residents. The house was clean and tidy throughout. When sitting outside we could choose between the shade on the deck in front of the house and the sun in the garden at the back.

We booked three nights and took advantage of a free dinner on the first night. This was most welcome before we had found our way around the area as there are no facilities in the immediate vicinity. Our hosts prepared an excellent barbecue of lamb medallions and sausage and ate with us in the garden. The friendliness, helpfulness and hospitality of the owners John and Rosemary is second to none.

The cooked breakfast contained quality ingredients and was prefaced by an assortment of attractively presented fresh fruit.

The personal touch was a stark contrast to the Auckland Airport hotel we stayed at next night on our way home and left us with fond memories of the area.

John and Rosemary's relocated house is situated so that it has excellent views of Taranaki. The old world charm of high ceilings wood panels and modern facilities blend to give an air of peace. We were looked after in splendid style and would recommend Villa Heights to anyone. If we return to New Zealand staying at Villa Heights will be very high on our list
