The Country Villa was the best place possible to stay in Rotorua. John and Anneke were excellent hosts. They were very caring and helpful. John made sure we knew exactly where to find everything and offered great suggestions of what to visit. I know we will be back to stay. Our room was very, very clean with great attention to... More

We spent two nights at Country Villa. John and Anneke were the best hosts you could ask for - absolutely first class. The room was clean, comfortable and well appointed, looking over a lovely garden. The cooked breakfast was very ample and delicious. Our hosts greeted us with tea and were very helpful in planning local activities. Thank you, John... More

Super nice house with lovely hosts,the breakfast is spectacular. The view from the house is so pretty in the morning, and it was such a unforgettable stay. Anneke and John are really nice hosts, and probably the most unforgettable person during our entire Easter holiday, very enjoy the little talk after the breakfast, and the house is more like a...

John and Anneke are the best hosts we had on our 3 week honeymoon in NZ! The house was beautiful, clean, and welcoming. Anneke suggested great things for us to do that are more "local" than touristy. We had a wonderful time. Breakfast was superb, and I want johns recipe for the muesli! Do yourself a favor and stay here.

Anneke and John are spectacular hosts, and their country house is charming, quiet, and comfortable. They spent hours advising us about the sights to see in and around Rororua. Rotorua can be an overly commercialized experience if you don't know what to see and do. The breakfasts were delicious with homemade jams and bread and eggs Benedict. We have stayed... More

Where do I start?? We booked this via a quick phone call taken by Anneke - she was more than helpful and things just got better when we arrived! The Villa ('building' doesn't do it justice) is a superbly renovated and extended Edwardian house relocated from Auckland. All restoration work has been undertaken by Anneke's meticulous and skilled husband John.... More

My wife and I stayed 3 nights at the Country Villa in late February. It is a wonderful place to stay for the spacious, nicely decorated rooms (we were in the Rose Room) and the hospitality and friendliness of the hosts Anneke and John....they are so nice. They provided excellent itineraries for seeing the main sights and walks/hikes (do not... More

Perfect stay at a well maintained location with lovely hosts, nice talks, delicious breakfast and superb rooms. We were staying two nights and spent some time in the nice garden and lounge. It is the perfect hideway from the daily stress. You should try the eggs benedikt ;-) Thank you!!!

We loved staying at Country Villa, so much so we came back for a second night. The countryside is beautiful and it's only a 15 minute drive into Rotarua. Anneke and John are wonderful hosts and the breakfast is really something else. We had one of the larger rooms which was perfect for the three of us; my husband and... More

We've stayed with Anneke and Jan for 4 days. I don't think that I have ever been at a B&B where we felt so much at home. The house, gardens are gorgeous and the breakfast (everything home made!) is more than enough for the whole day. Anneke and Jan are more like family, making sure that you are getting the... More
