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.
