We were warmly greeted by Tina, and our room was on the top floor with beautiful views over the City and the bay. Our room was comfortable, and we slept really well in the comfy bed. The breakfast prepared by Tim the following morning was also delicious. We unfortunately had our wires crossed and thought we had another night to...

Four of us stayed with Tina and Tim for 3 nights over Labour weekend. What wonderful people and what a wonderful place. Will remember for a long time, relaxing on the Sunday night sitting on the veranda with a good wine, chatting with our hosts and looking out over the lights of the Bay. The accommodation was excellent, the breakfasts...

My partner and I spent four nights in Napier and loved staying at Villa Vista. Tina made us really comfortable and served up incredible breakfasts every day (including fresh eggs from her own chooks!). Our room was spacious and clean with an amazing view and was excellent value for money. Strongly recommended.

My husband and I were fortunate enough to stay for 2 nights in this lovely B&B. It is at the top of Bluff Hill, the downtown residential area, It is a short walk downhill but quite challenging uphill. We had a car so not a problem with luggage for us.The house is three stories and we were in the balcony...

Our experience at the Villa Vista was fantastic. The service was outstanding and the location could not have been better. We were made to feel at home. Tina's breakfasts were teriffic. It was a highlight of our trip to New Zealand. Jan and Warren

What fabulous value for money this delightful B&B is. Travelling round the North Island on a tight schedule I had intended to stay for only two nights in Napier, but I was so impressed with Villa Vista, and with Napier, that I stayed for three ! Beautiful, spacious rooms, in a delightful and welcoming home, with interesting and varied breakfasts...

Villa Vista exceeded all expectations and was far and away the best B&B we stayed at during our 26 day self drive tour of NZ (both islands). Large generously furnished private guest rooms with TV, air con, and tea/coffee facilities were standard. Tina's hospitality, a balcony view and breakfast to die for, all added to a most memorable stay. Thoroughly...

I stayed 3 nights at Villa Vista in Nov 11 and found Tina to be an incredible hostess. The room was beautifully decorated, the food plentiful, special and delicious and the house to be interesting and the garden beautiful. The room had everything I needed, gave me privacy and beautiful views over the sea and was clean and well appointed...

This was my first visit to New Zealand. The host immediately made me feel welcome and it was quite similar to feeling at home. Casual conversation enable me to really get to know NZ. They were most helpful with refining my trip through the rest of New Zealand. I rate them to be excellent.

Reviewed 7 April 2011

We've stayed in a number of bed and breakfasts in several countries, and can't remember any that we enjoyed as much as Villa Vista. The house is an attractive sprawling Edwardian villa that's been renovated and furnished tastefully but not so that you don't feel comfortable in it. The guest bedrooms are upstairs away from the residential part of the...
