A very pleasant experience. The host Tina was lovely, the breakfast each morning was scrumptious, as was her homebaked delights she left for us each day. Very clean and well equipped, the bed was very comfortable, a lot more comfortable than the hotels we stayed in whilst visiting NZ. Very happy our first B&B experience was such a positive one.

This B&B is immaculately presented with1940s charm. Comfortably and professionally appointed, it was a delight to stay here, and our host Tina provided a number of little extras to augment the experience. It's a comfortable drive of 10 minutes or so into Napier, while Mission and Old Church wineries are very close by.

This B&B was tucked away in the Taradale suburb of Napier. Tina made us so welcome and gave us home-made cake to have with our tea on the sunny terrace outside our room, which was spacious and well furnished.Breakfasts were excellent and eaten in a dining room full of tasteful old furniture and china-some from the Art Deco period.

We stayed two nights in this 1890 old timber house in town on the hill side. Our large and probably originally decorated room was 25m2 with shower room 4m2 and balcony 8m2 with great city view below and the Hawkes bay view far away. Although many B&B had small washbasins, the glassplate above it made this one difficult to use.... More

Many thanks for your kind words, it was a pleasure having you stay with us at Villavista. Villavista has now been sold and is a family home. We have moved on to greener pastures ,Greenmeadows to be exact and to a smaller B&B- "Barrowmeade" 79 Avondale Rd Taradale. A very comfortable 1940s Bungalow .

Don't miss Napier if you are touring - many people by pass this lovely art-deco town. and if you want somewhere quiet yet convenient for town this is it.There are nice clean rooms and very welcoming hosts. We think it is very good value. Only drawback is that the car park is on a steep slope below house. We'd certainly... More

Decided to stay a little loger in Napier. By accident, we located this B and B near the CBD. The property was ideal, off street parking but a bit tricky due to the steep driveway. The rooms were good and the common areas were ideal with attention to detail everywhere. The casual atmosphere was the main attraction for us. The... More

For our first time at the Art Deco weekend we choose the Villa Vista on Bluff Hill above the city. Everything from the time we booked to the time of our reluctant departure was perfect. We had 4 nights in the Oak Room which is at one end of the upper floor. The room was comfortable and well-furnished with an... More

British style at its best. We stayed in this beautiful house almost on the top of the hill (only 5 min drive to the city centre) in the "Long Room". It has got a wonderful view over Napier to Cape Kidnappers. The room and bathroom were clean, cosy and big enough for us three. Every day we got a tasty... More

What a wonderfully quaint B&B Villa Vista is. Built pre the 1931 earthquake it some how survived and was restored to its original design. The interior including bedrooms are design in a style sypathetic to the character of the building. The breakfast room is typical. Very much in the 30s style it is complimented by a chiming mantel clock and... More

Wish we could have stayed longer than 2 nights, our top-floor room was a delight - supremely comfortable bed, excellent bathroom, glorious views of the bay from the balcony. Tina has thought of everything - tea and home-baked treats in your room, a superb breakfast experience, fresh flowers, books and guides to read. The house is tastefully decorated and furnished...
