My husband and I enjoyed 3 nights at the beautiful Villa Heights set in lovely gardens, with John as host. Villa Heights is in a lush rural setting, but an easy, short drive to all local attractions.. John was attentive without being obtrusive, a great conventionalist happy to share his ample knowledge of the area when asked. His chef skills... More

From the moment you arrive at Villa Heights you feel at home. We recently stayed for 3 nights and both John and Rosemary could not make us feel more welcome. Each morning we were served breakfast of our own choice in a warm and bright dining room. Our room was well appointed and the beds comfortable with luxurious linen. They... More

This is a great place to stay while you are in the Taranaki Region. Well located for easy access to the mountain and to New Plymouth with very welcoming and knowledgable hosts. Extremely comfortable with a lovely garden and terrific views of Taranaki as well. Highly recommended!

My wife and I just spent 2 days with Rosemary and John. They have a wonderful property in a great location and they are excellent hosts. Our room was spacious, spotless, and well appointed. The breakfast is outstanding, and the hosts very helpful and accommodating. We would happily go back for another dose of Villa Heights any time.

We stayed here for two nights and it was splendid. John & Rosemary are such welcoming people. Upon arriving a cup of tea and home made treats were offered which were great after a day on the road. The rooms are exceptional with an en suite with all the luxury items required to feel pampered. The rooms are large, comfortable... More

Villa Heights is an old villa that has been meticulously restored. Rosemary and John are charming hosts, happy to share their story with you, but not intrusive.. The house is warm (a pleasant change from many old villas) and very comfortable. We had the Egmont room and were disappointed we could not see the mountain when we arrived but next... More
