Rosemary and John are very attentive hosts and made our stay most enjoyable. They made sure we were very comfortable and cooked wonderful breakfasts for us. Their garden is beautiful and the views of Mount Taranaki are outstanding.

Beautiful old villa with lovely gardens. Very hospitable hosts. Facilities were clean and they had thought of everything a visitor might need. We were the only guests staying so had the use of both lounges as well as our own room.

This was our third stay at Villa Heights in as many years. It is so comfortable and welcoming and a quiet yet handy setting to many of the Taranaki attractions. It is certainly one of the best BnBs we have ever stayed in. John and Rosemary are great hosts and the house and gardens are a special pleasure in them...

What an absolute treasure. Stayed 2 nights and loved our room, breakfast, garden and most of all the friendliest hosts we have ever known. We had so many questions about our next 2 weeks of travel and John gave great suggestions and helped with schedules and bookings. Best BnB in NZ.

This rural location is good for those who want to get away from it all. Lovely views of mountain and countryside. Garden extensive and very interesting to walk around.
